A combination of Yin yoga and self massage with a continuous focus on the inside.
The purpose of this workshop is to slow down your whole being and shift the focus inwards. Leaving the distractions in your everyday life to feel and change your inner world.
Our busy lives and racing minds can send us spiralling in many directions. We often forget to take a moment for ourselves, whatever the reason is. Taking rest and taking care of yourself is important. As the saying goes: you can't pour from an empty cup. This is the time you can offer yourself to fill up that cup again and get closer to your true nature. With Yin yoga we take the time to rediscover what it means to turn down the volume of our activities and become a little quieter. With the self-massage we keep the focus on the inside while different tissues in the body are being massaged. As always your yoga happens on the inside.
The Yin part will be all about the upper body. Targeting different area's here and different mediridians. The holiday season can be very stressfull and we will be in the middle of Winter, a season that invites us to go inwards and rest andd digest. This whole workshop will be an invitation to go inwards to feel what is going on on the inside and to feel what you need. We will deepen the practice and activating meridians by staying longer in the yin poses after by massaging the tissue around the meridians. There wil be options to turn the Yin poses into Restorative poses for those who wants to do & feel less. Then resting in savasana to close the practice by resting and completely letting go.
So let's shift the focus from the outside world to that universe that opens up inside us when we close our eyes. Making a journey within, uncovering all that is stuck and tense and becoming open to whatever comes up on this Saturday afternoon. Allow yourself to let go of whatever wants to be released. The goal is to have you leave the studio lighter than you enter.
Sim started her first Vinyasa teacher training simply because she wanted to know more about yoga. After experiencing several different styles and workshops she really wanted to broaden her horizons. During this training she had to teach as well: something she didn't really want to do, but ended up liking it a lot! After that she went on to study Hatha yoga in India. Upon her return to Amsterdam so continued her study with yoga. She likes to teach now because she found it has been a very good way to get to know her own body, mind and spirit better. She teaches from the perspective that every body is different. One of her favorite quotes, from Bernie Clark, is "We don't use the body to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into the body”.
The workshop will last about 3 hours and there will be tea and snacks with Sim at the end to answer any questions that you may have or just to get to know each other a bit better. It will cost €35 and space is limited so please sign in below.
