Studio Yoga Dreams :
De missie van Yogadreams is het bevorderen van bewustwording gebaseerd op de yogafilosofie en beoefening. 

1. Wanneer kwam yoga op jouw pad?

Yoga kwam op mijn pad toen ik een reis door Thailand maakte. Dit was een ashtanga les en sloot heel erg aan op mijn dans achtergrond en ik was meteen verkocht. Er ging bij net zo’n lichtje branden van binnen als toen ik klein was met dans. Dit wil ik en dit wil ik met iedereen delen voelde ik!

2. Wat betekent yoga voor jou?

Yoga betekent bewustwording voor mij. En dat je allerlei technieken krijgt aangereikt die je helpen om de rust te bewaren in je hoofd en lichaam. Tevens was het voor mij een hele logische overgang vanuit mijn dans carrière. Bewust bezig zijn met mijn lichaam maar niet vanuit de perfecte vorm maar vanuit wat vindt mijn lichaam prettig en wat heeft het nodig. Yoga betekent mijzelf steeds beter leren kennen en blijven luisteren naar mijn hart en intuïtie.

3. Wat raakte je in BMR toen je er kennis mee maakte?

Ik was heel sceptisch over de BMR methode omdat ik het nog niet kende.Tijdens mijn persoonlijke BMR traject wat ik aan ging bij Hans uit nieuwsgierigheid, kwam er bij mij van alles los wat betreft mijn rol als moeder wat ik dacht al wel verwerkt te hebben. Nou nee dus. Ik was niet zo serieus bezig met het traject en toch haalde de methode dit onverwerkte stuk uit mij en toen was ik gegrepen. Want dat betekent dat de methode het werk deed, en niet of ik wel of niet geloofde in de methode. Toen werd ik steeds nieuwsgieriger en wilde ik er alles over weten. Toen zei Hans:” Ga nou maar de Opleiding doen als therapeute want je wilt alles weten”. Dat heb ik gedaan 🙂

4. Wat betekent BMR voor jou?

BMR betekent dat ik er een hele waardevolle nieuwe techniek bij heb om mijn volle potentieel te kunnen leven en dit weer te delen met anderen mensen.

5. Waarom wil je het zo graag delen met mensen?

Ik wil het zo graag delen omdat ik veel technieken naast yoga ben gaan ontdekken. Dit is de eerste die echt vernieuwend en heel effectief op redelijk korte termijn werkt. Waar mensen al 30 jaar mee rondlopen word echt bij de kern aangepakt zonder er wel ellenlang over te praten. De methode lost echt het probleem waar diegene last van heeft op en dat vind ik heel verfrissend en daar moeten meer mensen van weten 🙂 

6. Je hebt een masterclass yoga&bmr gepland staan. Interessante combinatie. Wat kunnen mensen verwachten op deze dag? 

Yoga & BMR is zeker een interessante combinatie, omdat we op alle niveau’s aan de slag kunnen om beperkte gevoelens en overtuigingen uit het lichaam (lees op fysiek, mentaal en emotioneel niveau) te halen om zo weer positieve gevoelens terug te kunnen halen.

Middels de Mindfulyoga & meditatie workshop op deze dag ontdek je jouw waarden en of je er al naar leeft. Daarna hoor je wat BMR nou eigenlijk is en leer je waardoor jijzelf nog laat beperken en je (nog) niet volgens je eigen waarden leeft (eigenwaarde ;-))

Aan het einde van de dag komt alles samen en ervaar je de BMR methode in de yogahoudingen die we gaan doen.

Be suprised of the effect…….:-)

Hans kan zo goed uitleggen wat BMR voor je doet. Hij doet dat in het filmpje hieronder!

What is meditation?

And why is it so good for you? Many people find it woolly or even scary. Meditation is nothing more than consciously bringing your attention inward. That’s it. Maybe this is explaining it too simple , especially for beginners. But there really is something like an indoor-outdoor world. Emotions, feelings, and thoughts all take place in your ‘ inside world ‘. Like intuition for example. It’s what happens on the inside you give you conscious attention during meditation.

There are several meditation techniques. There are concentration meditations, Insight Meditations, and meditations that focus on a specific target. Combinations between these three forms exist as well. To start with meditation, keep it simple. You can sit in a chair, on a cushion on the floor, or lying down is fine too. Make sure you are in a comfortable room, the temperature and odor feel pleasant, and there is not too much noise around you. This all helps to focus on the inside. Helpful is set your alarm clock (use your smartphone for instance). Three minutes is good start. And then…. just start breathing, close your eyes and if you want to put your hands in your lap. Try to observe and let go without judgement. Just be spectator of what is going on in your mind. You don’t have to stop thoughts that come to mind.
You will notice that by the time the alarm goes off, you feel calm, relaxed and you are breathing at a relaxing pace as well. 

Please do have a look in the mirror. Most likely you will see above you have a look in your eyes that resembles piece within.
All these benefits in such a short time. Careful, the feeling becomes addictive ;-).

Some benefits of meditation:

-It provides better focus, concentration, and clarity;

-It enhances creativity and joy;

-It increases your self-esteem and confidence;

-It improves your emotional balance;

-it brings you into contact with your core being;

-it promotes a good night’s sleep;

-it illuminates and prevents tension and stress.

‘ No judgments, just be a spectator of what is going on inside your mind ‘.

5 reasons to do a Yoga Masterclass

5 reasons to do a Yoga Masterclass

What is the difference between a normal yoga class and a yoga masterclass?

First of all, time. A regular yoga class lasts between 60 and 90 minutes and a yoga master class lasts longer. From half a day to even a few days. But what more to expect?

Below we explain why it’s nice to immerse yourself in a masterclass in yoga practice and more ….

1. In-depth yoga practice

In a Yoga Masterclass, the yoga postures are broken down very thorough in the classroom. And its deeper meaning is explained. The beauty of this in-depth training is that you will experience this the purpose of the postures in your body. The words, the routine you might expect, will feel different. Which will change your own practice and its significance.

2. Longer Practice

As stated in the intro, a master class lasts longer. You will, therefore, have more time to learn the postures. But also to find out more about it. The ‘ moment of truth ‘ is much longer. And you can, as it were, completely sink into the practice. Often, after taking a regular yoga class you have to go away because you have other obligations. You might be on the way to your next appointment or your work. In a masterclass, there is simply… more time. A regular class takes 60 to 90 minutes and a masterclass is usually 3 hours or even longer.

 

3. Inspiration

Because of the time, the theme and space there are for just you as a human being, you literally get the feeling of a retreat. To immerse yourself in a certain theme (of the masterclass). The background information and the yoga postures that you practice. One great source of inspiration. And don’t just think of ‘ yoga on the mat ‘, but especially ‘ yoga off the mat ‘. The real Yoga practice starts when you get off the mat. It is important to have full attention. To be fully aware. So you have the time to incorporate everything that comes by during the masterclass and take it in like a sponge. And especially to let go and relax. You will feel reborn. Powerful, full of renewed energy and ideas.

4. Community Feeling

The great thing about a masterclass is that everyone attending has consciously chosen to be there. The so-called 3 T’s: Teacher, Time and Theme). The people who are there, in any case, share this with each other. You will get to know new people who experience the same as you, the sense of practicing yoga together. That sense of being together. And practicing yoga together at this level gives a sense of belonging and community-feeling. Everyone ultimately wants to feel connected-whether you are introverted or extroverted.

 

‘ Everyone wants to feel connected-whether you’re introverted or extroverted-in the end ‘

5. Connect with your favorite Teacher

In the case of our motto: ‘ Online is great, in person is Magic ‘, it is of course great to meet your online yoga teacher in the flesh. The vibes you normally get through the screen will now be real. As if you were going to a concert of your favorite artist, but more interactive. The teacher is the person who may have been ‘ taking you by the hand ‘ for many months through a variety of yoga practices. Your coach, therapist, in what might have been difficult times.

Always returning to your mat and the online lessons of your favorite yoga teacher. The experiences of yogis who have felt this at a Seaze the Day Yoga Event are praising and enthusiastic. There is something magical to practicing yoga together with your favorite yoga teacher and yogis.

‘ The Energy and interaction is overwhelming ‘!

 

Without labels, with YOGA

Without labels, with YOGA

What are they actually, labels? Maybe you immediately thought of the nasty things in the back of your blouse or jacket. The ones You-if you are a sensitive type-immediately cutout of the blouse. No those labels are not the ones i am talking about. It’s about the kind of labels that you get ‘ stuck ‘ with from childhood by the people around you. Without you having a say on the matter. Think of your hair color, your ancestry, your freckles, your work, your name. Nice example; Someone hears you are doing yoga. Often one responds with: ‘ You have to be very nimble to practice yoga ‘. Or: ‘ You’re always in balance ‘.

No. Is the answer to both assumptions. People have the natural tendency, to put other people on the basis of externalities, work and other things in a box. To put labels on a person. And Often people derive their identity from these labels. But what if you remove those labels of hair color, work, nationality. What is left?

Who Are you?

The expectation

To these named labels expectations are attached. So the judgment and expectation are there sooner rather than the experience. Do you follow? In other words; Even before you get a chance to open your mouth and say something, others, think, they know who you are and what you stand for. This is of course very black and white, but it is what it comes down to. Minded * ck! And Yes, very often people are going to live according to their ‘ imposed profile ‘. What eventually does not serve you, because how long can you sustain this, right? Similar to, for example, someone who does not what to admit to his/her sexual orientation, because of shame, taboos, the consequences.

What to do?

What is very important is that we mainly keep an open mind. A spirit that is mindful and awake. To be Aware of the fact that we do not judge people directly based on the labels they claim, but also do not judge/label people, using the summary information we have. Sometimes it’s very easy to do that. Especially when it comes to people we might not understand. How often do you see this happening in your environment or, for example, in politics?

1. Choose labels you feel comfortable with

You can philosophilosophize endlessly about this. Most Important is to look for things that really suit you. That touch your core. To be You. For example, This could be three words. You can write them down to remember. To leave a print in your subconscious mind.

2. Realize that labels mean different things

What suits you with a particular label does not have to be the same for another person. Try to omit expectations. And, when it comes to work and/or a relationship. Communicate clearly with each other. And come to an agreement about these expectations.

‘ Very often people are living their ‘ imposed ‘ profile.

4. you bént not your label (s)

It has been said before in the intro. This, of course, remains a tricky one. What do you mean ‘ I am ‘ yoga teacher’. You identify yourself with your profession. Yes that’s right. It’s your profession and passion. But you don’t have to identify with it. You’re not only a yoga teacher. You are also all other ‘ things ‘: girlfriend, partner, mother, music lover, fan of Metallica. You Name it.

5. Let people hear ‘ your story ‘

And here you can fill in your heart’s desire. Outside the box. Show yourself to others, but to yourself as well. When You are honest and transparent to yourself, you radiate this to the outside world. And you make conscious choices that are mindful. Impossibility’s changing into possibilities. Because: Previously, you would have put everything in a certain ‘ not-possible-box ‘. And this is exactly what yoga and mindfulness are about. Make room in body and mind. To unleash ingrained views, judgments. Free to think and feel. So that you can cope more freely to what life has to offer for you. And to keep, just like children-that open gaze, for yourself and to others.
