What yoga, where and when?
Isabel will let you know the details but she will be giving Flow Yoga classes for all levels. Prices will remain low as this is a community project.

Isabel’s contact details
I leave information on the location of the classes and times on this website until Isabel creates her own for you.

Join me on Wednesday, 21 December at de Honingraat at 19.30 if you can! I have a special Flow class lined up for you, ending with some calming breathing exercises to see us through the Christmas festivities!

Wishing you a wonderful 2017
I have loved meeting you all and sharing my yoga practice with you. You have all given me, and Hans, so much energy and goodwill over the last few years of teaching yoga in Yoga Nieuw west.

Keep using  the tools of  yoga to stabilise and calm your lives, even when times seem hard. Focus on your breathing, deep and smooth! Follow what feels right for you. Nothing else is worth it. I  wish you all a wonderful 2017 and beyond!

Sri T. Krishnamacharya

Making yoga a sustainable part of your life

“Freedom from wanting unlocks the real purpose of existence.”

Yoga, like anything else in your life, needs to be sustainable to work. When you start something new, something you find you like, you can throw yourself into it with great enthusiasm. Or you can find that something new is challenging and therefore needs you to put a lot of energy into it as you process many new things. After a while you will start to see the results. This is often the moment when you can let things slide. It is at the moment when something is working well for you that you need to readjust to keep things in balance for yourself. Perhaps slacken off a bit in how much you do of it, or relax the way you look at it as it becomes more manageable for you. But don’t drop it. Continue reading

Welcome back to Yoga Nieuw-west in 2015!

“Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings.”

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama XIV

“The mind is everything. What you think, you become.”

Yoga Nieuw-west opens again on Tuesday, 6 January.
