Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga classes in Amsterdam
Yogash citta vrtti nirodha 'Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind.' Patanjali, Yoga Sutras I am a Vinyasa Yoga teacher based in Amsterdam. My yoga journey started ten years ago. Back in the days, I was finishing my Master Degree in Business and had to cope with a lot of stress. Yoga helped me to remain focused and grounded towards the new challenges I was facing. It truly brought balance into my life and helped me to smoothly adjust to these changes. Not only does yoga keep you fit. It goes way beyond the physical practice and impacts all aspects of our daily life. Yoga reminds us how to breathe and how significant self-love and acceptance are. Yoga teaches us how to find peace and comfort in the uncomfortable. Yoga soothes the mind and creates space for continuous growth and expansion. Yoga is a gift, 'the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.' That is why I decided to become a yoga teacher, to be able to share this expanding experience with others and guiding them to find their inner teacher. I can't wait to meet you on the mat! Namaste,

Cynthia

We then proceed to explore more contemporary philosophy, exploring Nietzsche, Sartre, and Heidegger.

YogaBody Style: Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, Yin-Yang, Breath Work.
I believe that every body is highly individual, we all have different bone structures, different lifestyles, different needs. Therefore, personalized yoga is most beneficial. Yoga styles and intensity varies from Power Yoga to Yin-Yang. It really depends what your body and mind needs. It could be flexibility, strength or help to manage anxiety by breath work. Well, yoga could have many benefits for the body if we know how to use it, because, let's be honest, the same pose that can heal can hurt as well. If you have doctor's recommendation for yoga, or you want to increase your strength, flexibility, balance, loose weight? Or perhaps you just curious about yoga? Let me know. I look forward to meet you!

Yoga and meditation classes. Vinyasa yoga flow and Classical Hatha yoga. Meditation and pranayama included! All levels and ages are welcome
Yoga is union between mind and body. During yoga asana class, you bring awareness to your body through conscious breathing and movement, which are the tools to keep a healthy mind and body. My classes can adapt to your needs and preferences, from more slow-paced sessions focusing on deepening in the asana (hatha), to more dynamic classes that will challenge your body (vinyasa). I believe in listening to your body when practicing asana; one should always feel comfortable in the postures and try to go a bit further within the limits of your body, and I will adjust your posture (needless to say, if you are okay with respectful professional physical contact) so you can deepen and improve every session a bit more! It’s incredible how fast your body can transform from this practice, and the benefits that come with it. I find useful the use of some props -I will provide with a strap and blocks for the session so you can experience and feel the asana in a way that feels comfortable and enjoyable, and will allow you to improve your flexibility and strength at the same time. I have learned yoga (and still am!) from teachers from around the world, mostly in yoga salas in Barcelona, London, and India, where I got my Yoga Teacher certification.

Society and the Political Economy: Law, War, History and Philosophy
Vincent Van Gogh once said something to the effect that greatness is a series of little things coming together, Emile Durkheim the great French sociologist first 'coined', "the whole is more than the sum of its parts" and Montesquieu conceived of laws in relation to climate. What do all of these have to do with each other? The fact that the interpretation and understanding of one of the realms of socio-political knowledge is not enough to either understand that single discipline of study whether it be Law, History, Political Science, Economics, Sociology or Philosophy- you cannot separate any from the whole and be able to understand the Short, Nasty,Brutish™ nature that reality is and that conditions human life. While my studies and work have nigh been exclusively related to Law, my interests which pushed me there were/are seemingly very different. Through my experience I may humbly submit that the the perspectives that each discipline approaches problems with are crucial in solving very distinct "linguistic" problems within their specific paradigms. They however are victims of dogma as is academia in general it would be fair to say. Living in the times we do, it is not only necessary as a basic informational issue but as an issue of responsible citizenry, young adults must be well educated about the political economy. Whether you're looking to study and/or are currently studying and/or want to learn about any of the aforementioned subjects whether in conjunction with current coursework and/or assignments, or if you're just interested and would like to learn about a specific period in time, this is for you.

What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.
