Yoga Workshop Amsterdam

It can be very challenging to cope in the Western world nowadays. We have a lot of pressure and responsibilities, work, family life, social activities, keeping a healthy body and the list goes on and on. Due to all this a lot of people suffer from many kinds of stress related problems such as high blood pressure, anxiety and depression. We must find a way to create a sense of balance back in ourselves and our lives.


 

Yoga Workshop Amsterdam

In this workshop we will be looking at how the physical body reacts to all sorts of stress factors that we have to deal with on a daily basis. What happens to your physiology? What sort of existing stress do we already have and how can we limit those factors with Eastern techniques? Those are the questions we will answer.

We will also introduce several meditation and breathing techniques that you can start practicing on your own at home to start healing yourself. Come let go and start the new year off right in this very special 3.5 hour workshop

Menieke Yoga Amsterdam

Menieke

With a background in personal training and coaching, Menieke's approach to Yoga is one that encourages the synchronicity between body, mind and breath. Since 2007, the practice of yoga has given her the opportunity to learn and work with inspiring teachers throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. After traveling and studying in these places for over a year she decided to come back to Amsterdam to teach. Inspired by Buddhism and the 8 limbs of Yoga, her classes are characterized by exploring and observing without any judgement. “You do not use the body to get into the pose, you use the pose to get into your body."
