Who is the class for? 

Yin yoga can be done by everyone, and is especially interesting when you seek physical flexibility, stress relief and relaxation, and when you wish to slow down for a stronger body-mind connection and a better balance in life. Each class offers an inner journey during which you will be invited to listen to your body, respect your boundaries, and seek relaxation within. Alternative poses will be offered, if needed. Props, such as cushions and bolsters, will be available to offer gentle support and invite relaxation when holding the postures. Yin yoga complements more yang-oriented practices. The classes will be in Dutch and English.

What can you expect?

Each class starts with a meditation to invite you to turn your attention inward, followed by a series of sitting and lying yin yoga poses, and ending with savasana to relax and restore. The poses will be held for three to five minutes to stretch the connective tissues of the body, and to invite mindful presence by focusing on the breath and sensations in the body. Each class offers an inner journey along the meridians during which you will be invited to listen to your body, respect your boundaries, seek relaxation and rest in inner space. The groups will be small, with an eye for individual needs and support.

Since my early twenties, I have been practising various forms of yoga as a means to find a better balance in life. My first encounter with yin yoga, by chance, prompted me to sign up for a Yin Yoga Teacher Training at the Nieuwe Yoga School in Amsterdam in 2016, and I have ever since been teaching and deepening my knowledge and practice with different teachers in yin yoga, restorative yoga, yoga nidra and meditation, including with Sarah Powers. I am currently taking part in her 500 hrs teacher training.  

Yin yoga offers a beautiful, inspiring practice to come home into your body and connect with yourself. The stretching of the connective tissues, the experience of relaxation, and the continuous invitation to turn inward to explore the inner landscape of sensations, thoughts and silence can be so nourishing, powerful and humbling that I would like to share this. In my classes I intend to create the environment for everyone to undertake his own inner journey.  I feel privileged to be able to do this in the historical space of the Sacred Trees Spiritual Studio.
