Workshop Veda Ela – toegankelijk voor iedereen, met of zonder Yoga ervaring

“We are Movement …We rest at the center of our Being” – Veda Ela

In deze workshop ontdekken we de balans tussen Yin (vrouwelijk) en Yang (mannelijk) als yogavormen. Yang vormen zijn stimulerend en versterkend terwijl Yin vormen herstellende en rustgevend zijn.

In de workshop behandelen we:
* Yang Yoga om te aarden en te flowen;
* Bewuste beweging om ‘in’ het lichaam te komen;
* Yin Yoga om te vertragen en diepere lagen in het lichaam te stretchen;
* Restorative Yoga om te rusten en ontspannen;
* Pranayama;
* Yoga Nidra;
* Meditatie.

Het doel is is:
– om in verbinding te komen met het lichaam; je hoofd uit te zetten;
– om oude patronen in je lichaam, hoofd en ademhaling los te laten;
– om fysieke en energetische gifstoffen los te laten;
– te leren loslaten, je aandacht bij het huidige moment brengen;
– om energetische kanalen te de-blokkeren zodat de Chi (levensenergie) vrij kan stromen;
– te leren om te stoppen met ‘doen’ en te beginnen met ‘zijn’;
– te oefenen om langzamer te gaan, aandacht te geven en stil te zijn;
– diepe ontspanning te voelen en naar je eigen hart te luisteren.

Tijd : 19.15  tot 21.45 uur

Docent: Veda Ela
Kosten: 25 euro

A workshop on conscious movement, meditation, yang and yin/restorative yoga with Veda Ela.

“We are Movement …We rest at the center of our Being” -Veda Ela.

In this workshop we will explore the balance between:
Yin (female) and Yang (male), as yoga styles.Yang style practices are stimulating and toning while Yin practices are restorative and soothing.

We will include:

* Yin Yoga to slow down and stretch deep tissue;
* Restorative Yoga to rest and relax;
* Pranayama;
* Yoga Nidra;

The purpose is:
– to connect with the body, switching off the mind;
– to release old patterns in the body, mind and breath;
– to release physical and energetic toxins;
– to learn letting go, bringing the focus into the present moment;
– to unblock energetic channels so the Chi (Life Force) can flow freely;
– to learn how to stop “doing” and start “being”;
– practicing going slow, paying attention and being still;
– the practice of deep rest and the listening of our own hearts.

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

 Fundamentals 1 

About the essence of this training
What makes you a “different” yoga teacher is the level of understanding that you have of yourself. The depth of your teaching has nothing to do with complicated yoga postures or performing. Yoga IS Life itself. How deep you want to go in your Life? That might be your uniqueness as a yoga teacher. It will define your style of teaching and the people you will attract!

In times where so many people become Yoga Teachers, want to make a living from teaching yoga and even travel the world with it…

We need to find our uniqueness…To share it and make it our way to inspire others and contribute to the planet Earth.This isYoga “on” and “off” the mat.

This training is a “self knowledge” oriented training. It’s mainly based on the path of Self-Inquiry.

Conditionings are habits are constantly doubts and questioned in theory and practice during the training.

It will help you to allow aspects of yourself to be revealed. It will support you in peeling layers of a personality that can be confused (and at times, an obstacle) with the essence of who you really are.

If you are a Yoga Teacher,
or doing a Yoga Teacher Training
or a yoga student willing to dive deeper into the understanding of yourself with the intention of restoring and resetting your life,
this might be something for you.

Restorative Yoga, because of its passive nature prepares the body-mind system for Meditation. We learn to listen to the body surrendering to the pose, accepting the moment as it is. It is a Yin (feminine/ passive) form called the “yoga of Being” opposite and yet balancing the Yang (masculine/active) practice.

Restorative Yoga is an oasis in our active lifestyle as it works mainly on the nervous system bringing calm, relaxation, and clarity to make decisions and act. This training will provide for you new tools to take onto your own practice and into every day life. It is an in-depth learning for a life in a higher vibration with awareness, acceptance of oneself, others and care for the planet Earth.
