Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga mainly consists of sitting and lying postures that you hold for longer periods of time. The emphasis in this practice is not muscle strengthening, but actually the complete surrender of muscle tension.

This causes pressure in your joints while your connective tissue, cartilage and tendons gets stretched so that they can recover, strengthen and refresh. At the same time, certain pressure points and meridians in your body get activated. Life energy ("Chi") is allowed to flow better, benefiting your organs, [...]

WEEKEND ZEELAND: YOGA EN STRESS VERMINDERING (VOL)

Ont-stress, herstel en ontspan Eén op de drie mensen heeft - in meer of mindere mate - last van stress. Op zich is stress een normaal verschijnsel, iets wat je als een elastiek oprekt, waar-na je weer terugveert, keer op keer. Maar als stress de overhand neemt is dan raakt de rek uit je elastiek. Stress doorbreken vraagt aandacht. Bewust en dieper ademhalen is een van de meest krachtige -en bewezen- manieren om stress te verminderen. ​ Tijdens dit weekend kom je (weer) op adem.

Zo ben je innerlijk op je paasbest

Pasen betekent meer dan alleen volop eten inslaan of naar de meubelboulevard trekken. Jasmijn Koelink nodigt je uit om deze dagen te ontdekken hoe je innerlijk op je ‘Paasbest’ kunt zijn. In prechristelijke tijden vierden mensen rond deze tijd van het jaar al dat het licht en leven terugkeerden. De ‘heidense’ tradities die hierbij horen, kregen de christenen er niet helemaal eruit. Het huidige Pasen bevat om die reden paashazen – in een mythisch verhaal konden hazen één dag in het jaar eieren leggen, een symbool van wedergeboorte en vruchtbaarheid – en palmpasenstokken – het kraaiende haantje bovenop staat voor [...]
