Surfing & the Cold. Feel your innerstrength

Lourdeskerk Scheveningen - Theater / Cultureel Centrum / Spiritueel Centrum

SURFING IN WINTER Its getting colder... You can feel that winter s coming.. Soo, with everything that's going on.. How do you react to the cold? Do you hate it, do you curl up in front of the fire place or can you embrace it? And do you continue to surf in winter? Do you know how do that? I learned to embrace and even love the cold.. By following several cold water trainings in Holland, Sweden and Austria I learned to love the cold. It made it possible for me to surf in the Dutch winter.. And I got more out of it. If you dive in cold water, you learn to go inside. To find your inner peace. You learn to deal with stress. To stay silent from the inside, althought the outside is cold.. Wouldn't that be a useful these days? To be able to cope with stress in all kind of situations? -> We have created a workshop called Surfing & The Cold and we love you to be a part of it. We ll combine surfing, yoga & cold water training.. And we ll start in a special location in the Lourdeskerk Scheveningen, a beautiful church.. The first workshop is on the 8th of november 2020. Due to the corona measures the group will stay small and only limited spots are available. Please book your spot online at: https://tashasurfcamp.com/workshop-surfing-the-cold or let me know if you want to come, cheers Natasha. Programm: SURF CLASS COLD WATER TRAINING LUNCH YOGA,MEDITATION IN THE LOURDES CHURCH READING: HOW DO YOU BECOME 1 WITH THE COLD AND HOW CAN YOU USE YOUR INNERPOWER? For only 70 euro's! Dates SATURDAY 8 NOVEMBER TIME: 11:00 - 17:00 LOCATION: LOURDESKERK 2E MESSSTRAAT 108, 2586 XG DEN HAAG Coach: Natasha Smit ,,As a surfer you prefer to go to warmer places. But if you live in the Netherlands, you need to learn to deal with the cold. By attending several workshops I learned to appreciate the cold. I see it now as a power of nature. By swimming and surfing in the winter I get connected to my innerpower. It makes me feel alive! Surfing and yoga is amazing. And its more than just a sport. It also connects me to nature, it keeps me flexible and gives me peace. By surfing you learn to focus. To shut up that money mind and to be in the here and now. Otherwise you will fall of your board! You also connect to yourself. You ll learn to listen to your own body and react on that. Surfing is the active part and (hatha) yoga is more relaxing. You connect with your feelings and will find some silence in your head.'' For more info, please check our website. and book your workshop here: https://en.tashasurfcamp.com/surfing-the-cold
