Yin & Yang Principles

This talk was made with Tt students in mind, but of course you are all invited to join in the conversation. We explore the basic principles of Taoism and its basic manifestations as yin & yang. A little bit of philosophy can make a huge difference in how we practice and live (at least that’s […]

Belly Power

Many of us shy away from core work, but I am a true believer of strong belly – kind heart – peaceful mind trio. This is a bit of a creative sequence, with lots of movements you know, meant to leave you feeling powerful, happy and calm.  The few stretches at the end help too.

Chakra Express: Anahata, the heart of it

Continuing our light explorations of the chakras, we arrive at anahata, the heart centre. There is much misunderstanding about the functions of the heart and its role in pur practice; we talk briefly about it and follow that with a guided meditation.

Suzee Grilleys “Twisting the Dragon”

In this little sequence we focus a lot on all the movements of the spine, and working on the muscles and fascia around the torso. A sweet moving sequence which is perfect to combine in any movement sequence or with the other “Suzee G’s” sequences.

Squat like you’re asian :-)

I’m a big fan of squatting and by squatting I don’t mean occupying a house or building that is abandoned, nor gym squats (although I do like those), but sitting like a large population in Asia does. In our western society we sit to much on chairs, resulting in (mostly fascia related) back problems, and […]

All Around Flow

My intention was to do a simple vinyasa flow, but I got caught up with it and it turned out a little less simple than I intended. But the poses are not particularly difficult and the rhythm is not too fast – although for some reason I got quite out of breath. Energizing and strengthening […]

Suzee Grilleys “Animal Parade”

Suzee’s Animal Parade is a great cardiovasculair workout. If you just have a couple of minutes for your practice or if you want to combine it in an other practice. It isn’t a difficult sequence but moving wise it’s quite intense! Enjoy!

The Living Spine

So many of us have issues with their backs, so much so that we tend to think of the back as a fragile, dangerous place. There is also a tendency to treat the body as if it is inorganic, comparing it to a paper clip or a credit card. This short talk and practice is […]

restorative yoga

this is a very mellow restorative yoga class. Different than in yin you don’t want to experience any “stress” in the poses, just relaxation. You’ll need however a couple of props like pillows, blankets a belt and maybe a block or 2. suggestion: wear warm clothes and make it as comfortable for yourself as possible.

Meditation: Why????

Meditation is widely recognised as being beneficial and even life changing, and still so very few people actually do it. A question that always arises is why should we do it all? Yogis look at meditation slightly differently than other practitioners do, this is a short exploration of these ideas.

Easy meditation

This is an easy meditation, focusing on the spine, while in- and exhaling on Marcel’s count. After a while we will hold the breath for a short moment. This is what we call Kumbhaka; breath retention. Enjoy!
