Yoga, movement & vibrations!

About this Event

Recharge, connect to the heart and deepen your yoga practice.This retreat is designed for you to nourish and nurture your body & mind. Let’s take a journey to our true selves. Letting go of the stresses of our daily lives!

Autumn represents a time of letting go and as the leaves fall we can take this example to shake off things that are not serving us anymore. As the weather cools and we move towards winter, we can take the time to connect with ourselves. This time of the year is perfect for practicing letting go, being grounded in our body and giving ourselves the opportunity to relax and unwind.

Music and vibrations are very important in our lives and have a positive effect on the mind and body. For every person this is a different experience, because every person has his own perception. During this retreat we will explore the benefits of a yoga practice combined with music & vibrations.

In the morning practice we will explore the Yang energy. A vinyasa flow practice to stimulate and energise ourselves. In the afternoon we will connect with nature, diving into the beauty that autumn has to offer. In the afternoon/evening practice will explore the Yin energy to calm, ground and slow down.

YOGA SHALA

Because we love to be out in nature we made our own beautiful yoga shala! This will be out in the garden so we are as close to nature as can be. We use a big tent with a steady floor for our yoga practice. When the weather is warm we can open the shala to reveal the beautiful surroundings. When the weather is cold we have heaters to warm and cozy up the place. We provide mats, blocks, bolsters, blankets and good vibrations.

FOOD

All the food that we serve will be vegan. All the meals are well balanced and put together with our nutritionist Steffi Haazen, who will also be there for the cooking workhop! We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner (including desert!). Tea, coffee and fruits will be available all day.

ABOUT STEFFI

Ever since I was a young girl I had a loving relationship with pure and whole foods. I remember going to the organic farmers market with my mom and being amazed by everything they had for sale. I can appreciate almost everything edible available. Even now: most women go shopping when they need a lift-me-up. But I go shopping for food and make myself a satisfying home cooked meal. Because that is what food is to me: food is love. And eating healthy food equals loving yourself. Because everything you put in your mouth feeds your body, mind and soul. I made my passion into my profession. I am a dietician now and my specialty is providing knowledge to different groups of people to help them optimize their own nutrition. The goal: teaching people how to nourish their own body, mind and soul. Accommodated to their personal lifestyle and preferences. Because a healthy diet starts with listening to what your body is telling you.

ABOUT US

We are Joy & Eddie, both lovers of music, movement and nature. Both having worked as professional artists in music we wanted to find a way to combine our love for music and movement. We have been practicing yoga and acroyoga together for over a year now. Along the way we started working with vibrations and music in yoga classes. We found out that vibrations and yoga both have a positive effect on the body and the mind. We’ve been researching ways to bring these elements together and during this retreat you will find out for yourself the healing power of both yoga, vibrations and nature. We are now ready to share our love and knowledge with you.

ABOUT JOY

I am always set in motion. After I studied musical theater, travelled the world and worked as a dancer and singer, I found that teaching is my passion. During my work as a dance teacher I started practicing yoga. Love at first sight! Originally because of the physical workouts, but soon I realized the full potential of yoga. It set my mind at ease. No longer was I rushing through the world. Now I’m an over 500 hours certified yoga teacher in hatha, ashtanga vinyasa, yin, vinyasa flow, meditation and pranayama. I’ve been teaching in different parts of the world and finding love and passion in doing so. I’m always looking to learn more and grow more in my own yoga practice. I love the combination of an energetic, playful practice combined with a beautiful yin practice. I also love bringing dance, music and yoga together. Practicing yoga has helped me to stay true to myself and I wish to share my knowledge so I can show people it is worthwhile to get to know yourself and to love yourself.

ABOUT EDDIE

As a professional musician I have travelled the world to experience different kinds of music. I have played many different styles and worked in different fields such as: musicals, theatre shows, hosting workshops, band coaching, studio work, commercials and playing my own music. I have been teaching drums and music for over 9 years. I love to share my passion and knowledge with others. For me this is as good as life can be, sharing passion and inspire other people with what I love to do. Since I was a little kid I have been into sports on a serious level. I have been climbing and bouldering for years and have a broad knowledge of martial arts. All sports where you have to use your mind and body at the same time. You have to get to know your body to have full control over it. I love movement and love to inspire people with my different experiences. Over the years I have been looking for the right combination of training my mind and body. Now I have been practicing yoga for two years and found that my love for movement, with my history of different disciplines, falls right into place. Together with my love Joy I found the perfect combination of music, martial arts and yoga.
