Hi Conscious Creatures,
The days are getting shorter and the leaves are turning orange and brown. A perfect moment to start our Drop-in Mindfulness and meditation classes again in Amsterdam. I invite all of you to join our Sunday morning drop –in sessions in which we will reconnect with our body and breath and calm the mind. During these drop-in sessions we will explore different meditation techniques and practices so that everyone can develop their own regular practice. A perfect way to close the week and take care of your mind and body.
My name is Viktoria and I am a certified Mindfulness trainer based in Amsterdam. I will be welcoming you in a beautiful yoga studio in the centre of Amsterdam to join our meditations. My interest in yoga, Mindfulness and meditation started when I was a student and struggled with stress and a pressure to perform. After trying several different ways to deal with my emotions, Mindfulness was of great help to develop another attitude towards my experiences. By observing myself I could see more than was present on the surface. I started to see my own unhelpful patterns and developed more awareness and self-compassion in difficult moments. This helped me to find a way to cope better with my stress. For me, Mindfulness is a way to explore and open up to the inner world and see what is actually present instead of running around in circles. Noticing, what a gift!
Nowadays I teach people Mindfulness in groups, organisations and one on one. I’m also a teacher at The School of Life and I love to write new articles for the online health website Bedrock Magazine. If you want to know more about me, check my website www.mindrevolutions.nl
