RESTORATIVE YIN XL (EN-NL)

Restorative Yin is een zachte, therapeutische vorm van yoga waarin de tijd wordt genomen om dieper in het lichaam te keren. De houdingen stimuleren de doorstroming van energie door het lichaam, waarbij door middel van bolsters, blokken en dekentjes de houdingen aangepast worden aan het lichaam.

De restorative yin XL is een extra lange restorative yin les, waarbij we aan de hand van een thema nog dieper het lichaam induiken. Deze XL les is geschikt voor zowel beginners als gevorderden, ongeacht leeftijd en gesteldheid.

If one of the participants does not speak Dutch, this workshop will be taught in English.

The Theory Behind Chakra Yoga – (EN)

Traditionally, the Indian tradition describes seven Chakras, or energy wheels, that are arranged from the base of the spine all the way up to the top of the head. These energy wheels signify the points where different energy lines cross each other and are connected to different physical, emotional and spiritual states.

In this course, you will learn more about what these chakras actually entail; you are not only going to learn more about how they are connected to different physical aspects and emotional states, but also what you can do to stimulate the energy connected to each specific chakra (for example by practicing yoga poses, eating certain food and more).

Ready to dive deeper into what the chakras have to offer? Then sign up now!
