About yoga classes

I am trained in vinyasa yoga and my asana practice has been largely influenced by mindfulness training.  I put emphasis on mindful movement, loving presence and the importance of correct alignment and breathing in each pose.

About mindfulness classes

Mindfulness is the practice of purposely focusing your attention on the present moment—and accepting it without judgment. Over the past years an extensive research has shown that mindfulness helps to reduce stress and improves concentration and overall well-being.

During the mindfulness workshops you will learn tools that you can practice every day at home. 

About healing cacao ceremony

Raw cacao is an exceptional medicine, already used by the Aztecs and Mayas in Central America, that helps you to lift the spirit and deepen the connection with your heart centre. It is a superfood rich in minerals and antioxidants. At the beginning of the ceremony, I will share with you a story about the cacao and where it comes from. Then, we prepare a hot cacao drink and mindfully drink it. After that various meditation exercises follow to deepen the connection with the self. The ceremony finishes with a free, spontaneous dance.
