Deep Restorative Sessions ๑ Grounding Yourself

23467402_1848083068855557_9056980399691449568_o.jpg

Deep Restorative Sessions ๑ Grounding Yourself

Working on our ability to ground is extremely important to be present in place and time. Starting with rooting our feet on the ground. Discovering our base chakras and our foundation or connection to earth helps even in clear decision making, bringing clarity to step forward. This class develops this connection with our roots combining restorative postures with pelvic and abdominal breathing.

Yin Restorative Yoga
This class is specifically designed for relaxation. The poses are mostly passive and supported using props, which allows for the release of tension and stress helping your mind and body to rest deeply and completely. Think of it as a ‘re-set’ button for your parasympathetic nervous system and your overworked brain! You will leave feeling renewed, soft and ready to face the world anew.

These sessions are open to everybody.

Date: Wednesday the 22nd of November
Time: 20:00-21:30
Location: The Conscious Club - Lauriergracht 142, Amsterdam

Conscious Business Talks ๑ Making A Difference

22861806_1841791526151378_8299858054811063202_o.jpg

WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Stay where you are. Intrapreneurship and doing good from within.

“I want to do something meaningful with my life. Maybe I should move on to a start up or an NGO or do something completely different so I can engage in something more purposeful with my time”. These might be thoughts that crossed your mind and yes, that is an option. But where the transformation is really needed and where you can create impact is precisely where you are. Where you have the opportunity, the time, the means, resources, influence and power to generate change. The solution is not necessarily to get out, but to change it from within. Can you as single, small individual make a difference? Yes, absolutely.

The Breath of Life ๑ Inner Peace

22117983_10155681309061303_1560602045_o.jpg

The Breath of Life ๑ Inner Peace

BREATHWORK
From the start till the end you breathe your whole life. It’s is a subconscious process which you can influence consciously. When you influence the breath, you instantly influence your state of being and vice versa. Breathe to relax, breathe to energise, breathe for change, there are many ways to do it.

Although we take around 80% of our energy from oxygen, we don’t learn much about breathing. Besides the physical process there is the movement of the breath, or flow, that can make tensions and stress in the body‘melt’ or release.

So the way you breathe tells a lot about the way you live your life. Come and join our conscious breathing journeys: The Breath of Life.

INNER PEACE
Do you know most answers come out of stillness?
Come experience your inner peace, emptiness beyond meditation.
Relax the mind and just BE.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Class ๑ The Elements Of Life

ayurvediclifestyle.jpg

The Elements of Life
Everything in the world, including our bodies, is made of different amounts of the 5 Elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Even the untouchable things, like our communication, has the qualities of the elements in it. 

Although all elements are needed in different amounts at different times, an excess or lack of a certain element can create an imbalance. Being able to recognise the elements makes it possible for you to adapt more easily to your surroundings and the events that take place in your life, finding balance in each moment.

A yoga class also consists of the elements. In this workshop Suze Retera will show you how to recognise the elements and understand how they work together and affect both your body and your mind. During the asana practice you will have a chance to experience the effect of the different elements in the different parts of the practice and gain an understanding of the intelligence behind sequencing.

Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the age old Indian science of health and can be seen as the sister of yoga. They compliment each other and are build on many of the same principles and knowledge. Knowing the basics of Ayurveda, your own constitution type (dosha) and how it relates to your yoga practice, can be of great benefit in finding balance in your daily life. In this class you will learn how to recognise the three Ayurvedic Dosha’s: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and how different yoga asana’s and types of yoga practices influence them. This will give you some practical knowledge that you can easily apply in your yoga practice and daily life.

Teacher: Suze Retera
Date: Saturday the 25th of November
Time: 16:30 - 18:00

Organ Balancing Meditation ๑ The Emotional & Physical Body

organbalancingmednov.png

Meditation Special
This meditation special is a combination of a breathing method and a meditation to clean up your body. Simply said, there is a way to breathe energy into the different parts of your body and even your organs. We think a lot about eating healthy but did you know that 80% of the toxins leave your body through your breath? Learning to breathe right is therefore essential. At home, after this special, you can use the breathing method to energize and even alkalize your body, or you can use the breathing method in combination with the meditation. Super powerful, super healing. 

Organ Balancing
Through this meditation Tim van der Vliet will help you to gain more body awareness. It is possible to communicate with your body. From a holistic perspective your organs tell you what is going on with you energetically. Your outer appearance often is a reflection of the way your body feels. In this special you can clean and energize your organs that help you clean up in a holistic way.

Date: Sunday the 26th of November
Time: 16:00-17:30

Masterclass Turning ๑ On Your Self-Healing Power

22382510_1832428467087684_6905240087430661821_o.jpg

Turning On Your Self-Healing Power

We all deal with stressful or even traumatizing event in our daily lives. As human beings we are physically and mentally designed to be able to not only survive these events, but to learn from them and evolve. But in order to do so, we need to have the time and space to apply our self-healing powers. With the current pase of life, this is something we often don’t find the time for anymore.

In this masterclass Suze will guide you through a body awareness meditation and an asana practice focussing on the breath and releasing fascia tension, preparing the body to relax deeply and release stress that is stored in the nervous system and the muscles. The asana practice is followed by a 20 minute Yoga Nidra session, allowing your body to integrate the healing that takes place and restore deeply.

Master Class Series
Each month Suze Retera explores a different theme, experiencing self healing practices at the start and then moving into deep hip-openers. The masterclasses offer the opportunity to take your practice to the next level, while starting your Saturday with a open body and a nurtured mind.

The masterclasses are designed to take you deeper. We take our time to explore the theme of the class and apply different tools like alignment, knowledge of the elements, pranayama and meditation techniques that take you on a journey within. You will learn and gain practical knowledge that you can apply to your practice on and off the mat.

Hatha Yoga & Live Music

20934837_1812481149082416_515069115609126952_o.jpg

with Dana van Breukelen & Marieke Versteegen

Hatha Yoga and Live Music invite us to relax both body and mind. Sacred music, the vibrations of ancient mantras and traditional hatha yoga practice, all bring us to a space of inner silence and bliss, which is our true nature. We combine yoga and music in a meditative yoga class.

"...music is intended to enable the mind to melt into melody" - Swami Sivananda

This special class is a gentle and slow asana practice (inspired by the Sivananda hatha yoga tradition), accompanied with soft and soothing guitar music, harmonium and voice.

There will be time for long relaxations in between the asanas to let the body recharge and to relax the mind. Sound vibrations have a healing effect on our physical, mental and spiritual body and bring them into harmony with our true blissful nature.

During these classes we invite you to open the heart, to let go, to leave thinking behind and rest in the silence of being.

About Marieke & Dana
Marieke experienced joy, stability and lightness from her yoga practice and this inspired her to take the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalayas in 2014. She is drawn to the devotional path of Bhakti yoga and chanting. Her classes are meditative and gentle, guiding people inwards. 

Dana grew up in a yoga ashram and was drawn to Indian music, language and mantras from a young age. She guides people into deep relaxation and stillness with gentle guitar play and healing voice. In 2016 she also completed the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalayas, India.

Sound Journey

SoundJourneyDecember.jpg

Sound Journey

Sound Journey with Frank Klank & Friends is described as an exceptional live music experience that connects guests with a deeper and more heart-centered world music space through instruments. Travel and discover the healing medicine of the sounds of the soothing singing bowls, the gong, a flute and drums - and let them be a bliss for your ears.

About FrankKlank - Klankevenementen
"Somewhere at the end of the late 90’s the sound of singing bowls started to trigger me. The sound of the bowls caught me, and out of curiosity I bought singing bowls. The woman in the shop told me: ‘take all the time you need for choosing a singing bowl. The bowls will choose you’. I truly experienced this, and took the time I needed. What a range of sounds I heard from 1 bowl. Some sounds touched me, other didn’t-- but it was interesting, and challenging. Hours later, I went home with 4 singing bowls.

Now, about 16 years later, after having a multiply of 4 singing bowls and after discovering loads of new sounds and feelings that happened in my body playing the bowls, I am still wondered about the influences the bowls can have.

I invite you to be curious about what sound can do and to feel what moves inside you if you listen to the sound of the singing bowls. Singing bowls make their own music, music makes vibrations and vibration means moving water. What happens with you and in your body, when knowing our body exists about 60% of water. If water moves, a lot can happen also in a human body.

Frank invites Ton Akkermans & Laura Lotti:
Ton educated himself in the making of therapeutic and meditative sound instruments. He also works with kids to let them feel more strong-willed, nationally and internationally. Ton has the gift to value the old Tibetan singing bowls to its purpose and to bring them to the energy of today. 

Laura is harpist is recognisable by her adventurous and intuitive sounds that lead to surprising sounds. By playing meditative music she explores the calming effects of the harp. At her sessions, it is about inner peace. She improvises from her own existing compositions, where a diverse spectrum of spheres will cross your ears. Besides the common classic sounds, Laura Lotti is part of the folk band LALOMA and forms a musical duo with Gwendolyn Snowdon.

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

23634297_10155814488596303_1856174172_o.jpg

THE CEREMONY

The Fall has arrived, the days become shorter and nature is preparing itself for winter. A beautiful time to reflect on what we have harvested and to dwell upon the wealth of our existence. Shed your light and fill your heart with gratitude, as well as for those who are going through a hard time.

You can mark the beauty of the seasons by celebrating them, by honouring them and by looking at the cycle of nature. How it fits your own rhythm and how you can connect to that.

With love, regret, forgiveness and gratitude, you reprogram your unconscious state of mind and allow yourself to heal. It’s a heart opening journey and in combination with the cacao a blessing for our souls.

The space is supported with meditation, heartsongs, movement and sharing.

THE CACAO
Why Guatemalan Cacao? Our pure, raw cacao comes from Guatemala. The Criollo bean cacao is sourced with the highest active compounds to produce the most mind altering experience possible. It is blessed by cacao shaman Keith and intended to work with in ceremony to support in transmuting energy. This cacao does not force you anywhere, but it will act as a partner healing medicine, supporting you in whatever you wish to open, heal or experience. The cacao elixer is completely safe to drink and has no hallucinating effect.

GOOD TO KNOW
๑ Wear something comfortable (no shoes)
๑ Don't eat too much before the ceremony so there's room for the cacao to do it's work
๑ If you are on antidepressants please let us know immediately since cacao and certain antidepressants do not mix and can have harmful side effects
๑ Drink enough water during ceremony. Cacao is a diuretic and without proper hydration headaches can occur.

With love ❤

In this class you will learn more about the Vata dosha, the symptoms of a Vata imbalance and how you can make changes in your daily life and diet that will support you during stressful time or times with lots of changes.

Yoga & Pranayama

21015714_1813548112309053_7271170673139764461_o.jpg

Yoga & Pranayama Series
Every month at The Conscious Club with Ramon Kinkel we have a special Yoga & Pranayama class. Pranayama is derived from 2 Sanskrit words - Prana (life force) and Ayama (control). Therefore, in its broadest description, Pranayama would mean the control of the flow of life force. 

During breathing for Pranayama ‘Inhalation’ (puraka) stimulates the system and fills the lungs with fresh air. ‘Retention’ (kumbhaka) raises the internal temperature and plays an important part in increasing the absorption of oxygen. ‘Exhalation’ (rechak) causes the diaphragm to return to the original position and air full of toxins and impurities is forced out by the contraction of inter-costal muscles. These are the main components leading to Pranayama which massages the abdominal muscles and tones up the working of various organs of the body. Due to the proper functions of these organs, vital energy flows to all the systems. The success of Pranayama depends on proper ratios being maintained between inhalation, exhalation and retention.

The Class
This class we will start with the practice of asana (poses), the third limb of the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the yoga sutras of Patanjali. By starting the class with asana (poses), the energy will flow through the body and you will sit more comfortable in a meditative pose to practice pranayama. The asana's will be followed by the practice of pranayama, the fourth limb in the yoga sutras. The practice of pranayama will bring the energy in your body back in balance and will clear your mind from thoughts, to get deeper into a guided meditation at the end. 

The perfect class to bring yourself back in balance!

The Hip Openers ๑ Ashtanga

hipopenersoct.png

The Hip Openers
Your hips are the connection point of both the spine and the legs. The ‘hip girdle’ and the 17-25 muscles that it encompasses are the central station of the body. We could refers to the hips as ‘the mother of all movement. When they’re open, you’ll be much more mobile above and below them’. So working on hip mobility improves your relationship with the rest of your body and its overall wellbeing. In yoga we are able to move our ball-and-socket hip joint through its full range of motion, and move in ways that break our usual patterns, whether those patterns are ones of underuse from a sedentary lifestyle, or overuse of particular muscles and neglect of others from a very active lifestyle.

Once a month we'll take a journey through the hip openers of a variety of yoga disciplines.

Ashtanga Practice
Our hips are the base of our spine where our health and energy is established. Our goal in yoga asanas is to open our hips and pelvis to awaken our maximum natural life force. 
In this special class Deborah Hoeks investigates poses from the Primary and Intermediate sequence of Ashtanga yoga that work around our hips. Deep hip openers to surprising simple standing poses; with a new bodily awareness in these poses it will open up new sensations of consciousness.

Meditation & Music ๑ Connection

meditation-music-connection.jpg

Meditation & Music with Tim van der Vliet & Frank Klank is described as an exceptional live music experience combined with a clearing meditation & breathing exercises to experience the power of vibration. Let’s tune into a deep meditative state together with the healing effect of the singing bowls and your own body.

The combination of singing bowls, breathing and meditation is detoxifying for your body while your mind is in a silent space. The soothing sounds of the singing bowls and the meditative journey will restore your overall balance and the release of happy hormones and neurotransmitters. 

Meditation by Tim van der Vliet
In this guided meditation, Tim uses the Wim Hof Breathing Method (the Iceman). We will breathe into the seven chakra’s, releasing tension and filling each chakra with healing energy. The breathing method gets rid off toxins, puts oxygen in your body and alkalises your body. This breathing method unlocks the happy hormones and neurotransmitters dopamine and DMT. DMT is also known as the Spirit Molecule. This brings you deeper in your meditation and connects with a silent space within you that may not have experienced before. This is very healing and the word silence may get a new meaning for you. 

Music by Frank Klank
Frank, is known as Mr. Singing Bowls at The Conscious Club. From the first moment he got in touch with singing bowls 17 years ago he knew it was his path to share these beautiful sounds. His collection has now grown into 34 different singing bowls, making every journey an amazing new one. 

We will invite you to be curious about what sound and conscious breathing can do and to feel what moves inside you if you listen to the sound of the singing bowls and your breath.

Yoga & Pranayama with Ramon Kinkel

yoga&pranayama.jpg

Yoga & Pranayama Series
Every month at The Conscious Club with Ramon Kinkel we have a special Yoga & Pranayama class. Pranayama is derived from 2 Sanskrit words - Prana (life force) and Ayama (control). Therefore, in its broadest description, Pranayama would mean the control of the flow of life force.

During breathing for Pranayama ‘Inhalation’ (puraka) stimulates the system and fills the lungs with fresh air. ‘Retention’ (kumbhaka) raises the internal temperature and plays an important part in increasing the absorption of oxygen. ‘Exhalation’ (rechak) causes the diaphragm to return to the original position and air full of toxins and impurities is forced out by the contraction of inter-costal muscles. These are the main components leading to Pranayama which massages the abdominal muscles and tones up the working of various organs of the body. Due to the proper functions of these organs, vital energy flows to all the systems. The success of Pranayama depends on proper ratios being maintained between inhalation, exhalation and retention.

The Class
This class we will start with the practice of asana (poses), the third limb of the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the yoga sutras of Patanjali. By starting the class with asana (poses), the energy will flow through the body and you will sit more comfortable in a meditative pose to practice pranayama. The asana's will be followed by the practice of pranayama, the fourth limb in the yoga sutras. The practice of pranayama will bring the energy in your body back in balance and will clear your mind from thoughts, to get deeper into a guided meditation at the end.

The perfect class to bring yourself back in balance!

Feng Shui Workshop

Feng Shui is the ancient art of creating energetic harmony and balance in our environment, with the intention of manifesting happiness in our lives.
The basis of Feng Shui is that our external environment - home or business, is a reflection of our inner world, and affects deeply how we feel and function.

With Feng Shui we consciously manage the energy of our environment to support our lives in what we need and desire. When we purposely shape and align both worlds, positive change starts to happen and the quality of our lives improves. Positive changes can be felt almost immediately, and over time deeper, long lasting, benefits are achieved. The results are: we feel balanced, focused, empowered, and happier.

Kathy Hoyer will give a fun and informative introductory talk, Her aim is to familiarize people with Feng Shui, and focus on why and how they can use it in their own home or business to consciously create environments that support them in what they desire.

'Feng Shui is all about understanding the energy around us and inside us. When we reach that point, we start to experience reality on a different level and we can open up to what the energy is telling us. Then, the only thing to do, is to listen and work with it.'

The Zen Special ๑ Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra

thezenspecialnov.png

The Zen Special, a perfect break in the middle of the weekend.

The Art of Relaxation
“The practice of yoga nidra is the act of hearing and the act of feeling, these are the only important factors. In yoga nidra you function on the level of awareness plus the level of listening. In dreams you have no control, in yoga nidra you are the creator of the dream”.
- Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Yoga nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. You will learn and experience to relax consciously.
In combination with yin yoga we want to give you a full experience of total relaxation in 1.5 hours. We will prepare ourselves for winter and strengthen the kidney energy. This will charge your battery! We will finish the class with drinking a vegan chai together.

In what way does yoga nidra affect the body and mind?
Relaxation, rest and silence are the keywords for this Saturday afternoon.

Masterclass ๑ Creating Space and Flow

23599904_10155814293366303_484849380_o.jpg

Creating Space and Flow: Deep Hip openers
The hips connect the upper and the lower body, an open flow of energy in this area is therefore connected to a better range of motion in the spine, a relaxed psoas muscle and a proper range of motion in the legs. But space is not the only thing we want in our hips. We need stability as well. How to combine the two and what the correct alignment is in hip openers is often unclear.

In this masterclass Suze Retera will guide you through a fluid practice that guides you through a variety of hip openers. She will clearly explain the alignment needed to practice safe hip openers that create both space and stability. 

Master Class Series
Each month Suze Retera explores a different theme, experiencing self healing practices at the start and then moving into deep hip-openers. The masterclasses offer the opportunity to take your practice to the next level, while starting your Saturday with a open body and a nurtured mind.

The masterclasses are designed to take you deeper. We take our time to explore the theme of the class and apply different tools like alignment, knowledge of the elements, pranayama and meditation techniques that take you on a journey within. You will learn and gain practical knowledge that you can apply to your practice on and off the mat.

Sacred Cacao Ceremony ๑ Ho’oponopono Journey

cacaoceremonynov.png

THE CEREMONY
During this special cacao ceremony we will connect with the amazing healing technique called the Ho’oponopono. The Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.

With love, regret, forgiveness and gratitude, you reprogram your unconscious state of mind ans allow yourself to heal. It’s a heart opening journey and combine with the cacao a blessing for our souls.

The space is supported with meditation, heartsongs, movement and sharing.

THE CACAO
Why Guatemalan Cacao? Our pure, raw cacao comes from Guatemala. The Criollo bean cacao is sourced with the highest active compounds to produce the most mind altering experience possible. It is blessed by cacao shaman Keith and intended to work with in ceremony to support in transmuting energy. This cacao does not force you anywhere, but it will act as a partner healing medicine, supporting you in whatever you wish to open, heal or experience. The cacao elixer is completely safe to drink and has no hallucinating effect.

GOOD TO KNOW
๑ Wear something comfortable (no shoes)
๑ Don't eat too much before the ceremony so there's room for the cacao to do it's work
๑ If you are on antidepressants please let us know immediately since cacao and certain antidepressants do not mix and can have harmful side effects
๑ Drink enough water during ceremony. Cacao is a diuretic and without proper hydration headaches can occur.

With love ❤

Sound Medicine ๑ Singing Bowls & Mantra’s

with Frank Klank & Dana Devi

Discover the healing medicine of sound with Frank Klank and his singing bowls and Dana Devi who will sing and share the sound of sacred mantra’s.

Singing bowls can restore vibratory frequencies of the body, mind, and soul that are out-of-harmony and diseased. The sounds they emit work as a type of energy medicine that has been known to heal pain, depression, and stress disorders.

Ancient mantra’s are known to have a healing effect and recharge body and mind. The Sanskrit root of “mantra” is “manas” which means mind combined with “trai” which means to “set free from.” The literal definition of mantra is “set free the mind.”

During this Sound Medicine you can lay down and leave all thinking and doing of the day behind. The singing bowls and soothing melodies of sacred mantras will guide you deeper into peace and relaxation.

Hatha Yoga and Live Music with Dana van Breukelen & Marieke Versteegen

Hatha Yoga and Live Music invite us to relax both body and mind. Sacred music, the vibrations of ancient mantras and traditional hatha yoga practice, all bring us to a space of inner silence and bliss, which is our true nature. We combine yoga and music in a meditative yoga class.

"...music is intended to enable the mind to melt into melody" - Swami Sivananda

This special class is a gentle and slow asana practice (inspired by the Sivananda hatha yoga tradition), accompanied with soft and soothing guitar music, harmonium and voice.

There will be time for long relaxations in between the asanas to let the body recharge and to relax the mind. Sound vibrations have a healing effect on our physical, mental and spiritual body and bring them into harmony with our true blissful nature.

During these classes we invite you to open the heart, to let go, to leave thinking behind and rest in the silence of being.

Did you know you can convert kinetic energy of dancing people into electricity? That the millions of liters water at festivals, parties and clubs could be recycled with one big water tank, and that plants can filter this old water into new drinking water?

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

In this time of Fall we invite you to celebrate and share gratitude, for all that blossomed for us in summer!

The spirit of the cacao will take us on a journey through different roams inside. Recall the light by embracing our shadows.

THE CEREMONY
The Fall has arrived, the days become shorter and nature is preparing itself for winter. A beautiful time to reflect on what we have harvested and to dwell upon the wealth of our existence. Shed your light and fill your heart with gratitude, as well as for those who are going through a hard time.

You can mark the beauty of the seasons by celebrating them, by honouring them and by looking at the cycle of nature. How it fits your own rhythm and how you can connect to that.

With love, regret, forgiveness and gratitude, you reprogram your unconscious state of mind and allow yourself to heal. It’s a heart opening journey and in combination with the cacao a blessing for our souls.

The space is supported with meditation, heartsongs, movement and sharing.

THE CACAO
Sacred Cacao is a soft but gentle medicine used to open the heart. The active ingredients of the cacao work strongly on the heart chakra and brings us back to our natural state of feeling. We sink with our head into our heart and connect ourselves intuitively with Mother Earth.

Our pure, raw cacao comes from Guatemala. The Criollo bean cacao is sourced with the highest active compounds to produce the most mind altering experience possible. It is blessed by cacao shaman Keith and intended to work with in ceremony to support in transmuting energy. This cacao does not force you anywhere, but it will act as a partner healing medicine, supporting you in whatever you wish to open, heal or experience. The cacao elixer is completely safe to drink and has no hallucinating effect.

GOOD TO KNOW
๑ Wear something comfortable (no shoes)
๑ Don't eat too much before the ceremony so there's room for the cacao to do it's work
๑ If you are on antidepressants please let us know immediately since cacao and certain antidepressants do not mix and can have harmful side effects
๑ Drink enough water during ceremony. Cacao is a diuretic and without proper hydration headaches can occur.

With love,

Charon Tolhuisen, Shamim Meijs, Elizabeth Plokker and Dana van Breukelen

Tree Wisdom in The City ๑ A Walk in The Park

Jeroen Heindijk worked with a tree shaman, Dusty Miller the 13th for 18 years taking many trips through ancient forests. He learned about the unity in nature, the connection between trees and how they communicate.

The unique story about Dusty Miller, are the dryades, the tree spirits who have an enormous wisdom for those who are open to it. Many people have lost their natural connection with nature, Jeroen Heindijk wants to restore that ancient connection by reconnecting people through the wisdom of trees.

Jeroen will take you outside, while you go inside. We will walk to the Vondelpark, where you will get to know various trees and find your natural access point to restore that connection. The question is, what is this connection? How do you connect? Does the quality or the age of the tree play a role? What tree works best for you? Can you work with different trees? Is there work to do in this city to let nature find and share her authentic power?

Questions we will try to answer during this walk in the park.
Keywords: Meditation, grounding, connecting, recognizing and becoming aware.

Date: Sunday the 24th of September

Kirtan ๑ The Sound of Yoga

21017780_10213006444889644_1824772240_o.jpg

Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences kirtan differently, you can think of it as a sing-along.

A kirtan concert is not your typical concert either. Everyone sits on the floor, and the wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet.

Because kirtan has roots in India, many of the songs are sung in Sanskrit. Some of you know how powerful singing in an ancient, holy language can be. You can be completely immersed in the sound, with no words to distract the mind. The magic of the chants carry you within.

Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Class ๑ The Elements of Life

The Elements of Life
Everything in the world, including our bodies, is made of different amounts of the 5 Elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Even the untouchable things, like our communication, has the qualities of the elements in it.

Although all elements are needed in different amounts at different times, an excess or lack of a certain element can create an imbalance. Being able to recognise the elements makes it possible for you to adapt more easily to your surroundings and the events that take place in your life, finding balance in each moment.

A yoga class also consists of the elements. In this workshop Suze Retera will show you how to recognise the elements and understand how they work together and affect both your body and your mind. During the asana practice you will have a chance to experience the effect of the different elements in the different parts of the practice and gain an understanding of the intelligence behind sequencing.

Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the age old Indian science of health and can be seen as the sister of yoga. They compliment each other and are build on many of the same principles and knowledge. Knowing the basics of Ayurveda, your own constitution type (dosha) and how it relates to your yoga practice, can be of great benefit in finding balance in your daily life. In this class you will learn how to recognise the three Ayurvedic Dosha’s: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and how different yoga asana’s and types of yoga practices influence them. This will give you some practical knowledge that you can easily apply in your yoga practice and daily life.

Love is... ๑ A Meditation Playshop with Krishna Prem

meditationplayshop.jpg

Join in on an afternoon of meditation and cosmic gossip with Krishna Prem.

In this three hour 'playshop' we will explore together the mysteries of life, love and meditation. Love is the feminine way to enlightenment and meditation is the masculine way.

Krishna Prem, also known as Michael Mogul, is an author of "Gee You Are You" as well as being a meditation teacher. Krishna Prem left America over forty years ago in search of himself. Arriving in India, he met his teacher and friend Osho, who simply said: "If you really want to know who you are, be a joke unto yourself. Do not take yourself so seriously."

For more information on Krishna Prem check www.geeyouareyou.com

"Meditation means the capacity to be absolutely alone, and Love means the capacity to be absolutely together. Love means rejoicing relatedness; Meditation means rejoicing solitude, aloneness. Both do the same work, because on boththe paths the ego disappears." - Osho
