MINDFUL YOGA Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in !
DUTCH & ENGLISH
Yoga is a dance between control and surrender
Engage in yoga practices to increase attentiveness to your body and take time to relax your body and mind. Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Everybody can benefit from doing yoga!
My journey with yoga started many years ago. I completed the Vinyasa Teacher training & Slow Flow training at Yoga Moves in Utrecht. Yoga has helped me become stronger, more balanced and flexible in body and mind. Yoga and mindfulness go hand-in-hand. When practicing yoga, you learn to shift your awareness to the bodily sensations, thoughts, and emotions that accompany a given pose.
I continue to deepen and grow on my yoga path and am inspired and committed to share and help others on their mindful yoga journey.

A continuous practice of Sun Salutations will bring more strength, flexibility, and tone to the body. It will open the hamstrings, shoulders, and the chest, as well as release tension. As you move through the poses, you are also lubricating the joints, in turn aiding in keeping the full range of motion in the body. See instruction video below.
"Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice, to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” - Rolf Gates
"Yoga is not merely touching your toes, or standing on your head, or folding yourself into a pretzel. It's about how you do what you do, and how you live your daily life on a moment-to-moment basis".
