    • First class €10
    • Single class €15
    • Member card €60 for 5 classes (usable within 6 months, for in-person, online and outdoor practices + discount for events, workshops and retreats)

    ***

    GENERAL INFO:
    • This is a 75min. live in-person class
    • All levels are welcome
    • I guide the class in a way that leads to self-exploration, meaning it’s transformative (for some instantly for others over time)

    ***

    PRACTICALLY EXPLAINED:

    The 75min. class is music-driven and consists of the following:

    • SHAKING OFF THE DAY / HIGH INTENSITY MOVEMENT
    What?
    5-10min of perpetual bodyweight sets of movement on upbeat music. Think jumping jacks, burpees, hopping & dancing around. We use the breath and sound of voice (only if you want too) to shake up the energy and release mental/emotional stagnations (sluggishness, frustration, stress, ... you name it) out of the body-heart-mind. Simulteneously, we're building a strong resilient body while becoming proficient at life itself and building nervous system tolerance.

    Why?
    To create chaos in the physical body. When we move, everything moves. Meaning that we trigger ourselves through movement, stirring ourselves up & stepping outside our realm of “normal”. We enter the chaos & move right through resistance and struggle. Basically meeting ourselves from the inside out. While we move, we also explore thought activities that come up. In between songs, we take moments of active recovery. Connecting to the sensations. Assessing/ absorbing. We are taking out a couple of those layers that stop us from moving forward. Cleaning our emotional home, making it a nice place to live in.

    The impact?
    Reset of your state of being/feeling
    Mental clearing
    Emotional (stress) release
    Psychological relief
    Letting down your guard
    Experiencing authenticity
    Recognising that you have a choice
    (Re)igniting the inner-spark
    Strong resilient body

    Second part of the class:
    • TAKING REST (rest of class)
    What?
    We take rest. We allow the body to reset. Letting the molecules of the body find their natural alignment. Yin yoga shapes, slow breathing exercises & meditation/yoga nidra support this process.

    Why?
    To let the body come back to homeostasis. This is the way for the nervous system to come back to balance, trusting the body to do the work. We are so used to toxic rushing, wanting to go to the next,... By resting, we reprogram the neurological pathways in the brain and give ourselves permission to stay in the body. We feel the sensations and meet ourselves as we are in relationship to the world around us. Doing nothing and slipping into the “being mode” is probably the biggest practice of all. We need more of that; to rest more.

    Impact?
    Rearrangement of our whole self
    Embracing vulnerability
    Increasing sensory awareness
    Increasing sense of self-agency
    Self-regulation

    ***

    STRESS RELEASE CYCLE:
    I studied the stress release cycle by Dr. Scott Lyons, which forms the framework for my classes. We directly engage with stress and sensations within us (mental, physical & emotional in nature). We move it around and release old energy out. Showing up for ourselves. Beginning again. For that to happen, both moving and resting are necessary.

    All in all, it’s a sustainable way of dealing with day to day stress and discomfort, which we usually don’t want to feel and push aside. Contrast is needed to move forward. So, we deal with challenges and problems and use it as food for growth. Moving with the changing streams is necessary to live an authentic/honest life.

    See this practice as a way to "re-tool" yourself emotionally, mentally and physically, allowing you to navigate life more fluidly while entering the conversation with yourself☺️

    MAX. 12 PARTICIPANTS (min. 4 participants required)

    THIS IN-PERSON PRACTICE IS VALUED AT:
    • First class €10
    • Single class €15
    • Member card €60 for 5 classes (usable within 6 months, for in-person, online and outdoor practices + discount for events, workshops and retreats)

    ***

    GENERAL INFO:
    • This is an in-person class
    • All levels are welcome
    • I guide the class in a way that leads to self-exploration, meaning it’s transformative (for some instantly for others over time)

    ***

    CLASS FOCUS:
    This session features breathwork (this can range from 2-3 rounds of Wim Hof breathing*** or pranayama techniques) and yin yoga.

    • *** Wim Hof breath • This is a breathing technique in which we skip the natural pauses between the in- and outbreaths so it becomes circular. This increases the oxygen intake in the body which has a lot of benefits (read below). It also shakes up the body-heart-mind, meaning that we can reach deeper levels of consciousness while also triggering release of stagnancies stored in the subsconscious.
    • Yin Yoga • A slow and restful practice that is all about opening the body through passive stretching using props, allowing us to slow down and embrace the power of rest.

    ***

    FINAL WORDS:
    The Practice takes you through a transformative experience in which the holistic guidance:

    • shifts you into new perspectives,
    • centers you to be in the now
    • and empowers you in the relation with yourself.
      This fosters a quality of clarity, relief and strong sense of self.

    Evolving with every practice you take, you bring home new tools for your journey of personal growth.

    Think of these practices as a way to explore the depths of yourself and the connection with your living-body. The more we (re)establish the relationship with our alive self, the more at ease, vital and free we feel in our day-to-day life.

    When learn to understand the changing stream of sensations happening inside of us (mental, physical and emotional in nature), we can start to develop a sense of self-agency and understanding occuring from the inside out. Over time, we learn how to self-regulate by stepping into direct conversation with the body-heart-mind.

    • All props are available on location free of charge.
    • Please arrive 10min prior to class

    To let the body come back to homeostasis. This is the way for the nervous system to come back to balance, trusting the body to do the work. We are so used to toxic rushing, wanting to go to the next,... By resting, we reprogram the neurological pathways in the brain and give ourselves permission to stay in the body. We feel the sensations and meet ourselves as we are in relationship to the world around us. Doing nothing and slipping into the “being mode” is probably the biggest practice of all. We need more of that; to rest more.

    Impact?
    Rearrangement of our whole self
    Embracing vulnerability
    Increasing sensory awareness
    Increasing sense of self-agency
    Self-regulation

    STRESS RELEASE CYCLE:
    I studied the stress release cycle by Dr. Scott Lyons, which forms the framework for my classes. We directly engage with stress and sensations within us (mental, physical & emotional in nature). We move it around and release old energy out. Showing up for ourselves. Beginning again. For that to happen, both moving and resting are necessary.

    All in all, it’s a sustainable way of dealing with day to day stress and discomfort, which we usually don’t want to feel and push aside. Contrast is needed to move forward. So, we deal with challenges and problems and use it as food for growth. Moving with the changing streams is necessary to live an authentic/honest life.

    See this practice as a way to "re-tool" yourself emotionally, mentally and physically, allowing you to navigate life more fluidly while entering the conversation with yourself☺️

    CLASS FOCUS:
    This session features breathwork (this can range from 2-3 rounds of Wim Hof breathing*** or pranayama techniques) and yin yoga.

    • *** Wim Hof breath • This is a breathing technique in which we skip the natural pauses between the in- and outbreaths so it becomes circular. This increases the oxygen intake in the body which has a lot of benefits (read below). It also shakes up the body-heart-mind, meaning that we can reach deeper levels of consciousness while also triggering release of stagnancies stored in the subsconscious.
    • Yin Yoga • A slow and restful practice that is all about opening the body through passive stretching using props, allowing us to slow down and embrace the power of rest.

    ***

    FINAL WORDS:
    The Practice takes you through a transformative experience in which the holistic guidance:

    • shifts you into new perspectives,
    • centers you to be in the now
    • and empowers you in the relation with yourself.
      This fosters a quality of clarity, relief and strong sense of self.

    Evolving with every practice you take, you bring home new tools for your journey of personal growth.

    Think of these practices as a way to explore the depths of yourself and the connection with your living-body. The more we (re)establish the relationship with our alive self, the more at ease, vital and free we feel in our day-to-day life.

    When learn to understand the changing stream of sensations happening inside of us (mental, physical and emotional in nature), we can start to develop a sense of self-agency and understanding occuring from the inside out. Over time, we learn how to self-regulate by stepping into direct conversation with the body-heart-mind.
