Yoga is a lifestyle!! All you need to dedicate some time and rest you leave things to me. You will feel a positive change with the process. You will love this journey :) Yoga is much for than what we see on social media ;) Yoga was first mentioned in the old scared Rig Ved scripture. Yoga means Yuj/Yoke/unite-union-joining (with the divine intelligence of the universe). Yoga sutra philosophy says - Yoga is Concentration. It's a holistic science with yoga philosophy. It includes the entire person within its purview: the body, mind, intellect, and consciousness. We are going to focus on your, customized approach!! Especially for you!! you will have me all attention. Bring back to breathe, relax, revive and do some wonderful asanas, Kriya, Mudra, Pranayama and many more. You will rejuvenate after the practice. Tips- Take a deep breath and don't think much. Just book a session and experience the journey. I teach internationally and to corporate companies, yoga teachers and private clients. If you want to host significant yoga events for your community or office. Please reach out for collaboration. It's been more than 10 years of my fitness journey, health and mentorships. I have hosted 1500 + participants but more numbers do not matter. Besides I am trained in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Himalayan & Iyengar but most important I understand you and work accordingly. So, let's practice now!!

Spiritual music - the art of making music from the heart
Learn to make music straight from the heart! Study music as a spiritual practice. It is one of the most valued factors in music all over the world, though also one of the least understood. (At least in the western world, if not anywhere.) Often deemed a kind of sub-talent "one just has or one doesn't", I am very certain it is something any musician can learn. I know because I found out how that works. The technique is easy to understand, but hard to master. Mastering in fact takes a lifetime. As it is in essence the art of improving oneself through the medium of music. A lifelong student myself, I have always found it hard to study music in any other way. Most things therefore I had to find out by myself while carving my own path, never really staying with any music teacher for long. No matter how skilled you currently are at making music, you can learn this if you feel the motivation to do so. In fact it can be an advantage not to much already. One main medium we use for training is improvisation. Which might be scary at first, but can become something very exciting very soon if you open yourself to it. Anyone can learn this! The methods used can also be applied to non-improvised music. They turn studying music into a spiritual practice and performing music into the sharing of spiritual energy with other people. Are you interested in making music from the heart? Are you open to accept my teachings as a hypothesis, to find out for yourself if it works for you? Depending on what you prefer we can also integrate a variation of other spiritual techniques into our lessons. Get in touch! Lessons can also be online or in person, we will talk about this during intake. Other times and dates than stated here might also be available, please contact me for further enquiries. Usually very flexible when it comes to time and location. *** Background: Musically I am experienced with a wide variety of instruments. I am active in other artistic disciplines. Please read my profile for more information. For the past 10 years or so I have had much spiritual training, living practically like a monk next to having a part time job, until quite recently. For more information about this, please also read my profile.

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!

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.

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,

Miss Sarah

Classic hatha yoga private lesson (Sivananda style) | for inner peace and physical well-being
I am trained in classical hatha yoga, specifically Sivananda yoga. It is a varied class consisting of breathing exercises (pranayama), active yoga postures (asanas) interspersed with relaxation (savasana). The yoga style was developed by Swami Sivananda. He had a background as a doctor, with this knowledge he has developed a series of exercises that are optimal for your entire health. The asana poses are aimed at promoting the functioning of your organs and the alternation of exertion and relaxation promotes the balance of your autonomic nervous system. By regularly practicing Sivananda yoga you will feel fitter and you will notice that you can find more relaxation in your life. My lesson will look like this: I start the class with some breathing exercises. Then follow the warming up exercises (including the sun salutation) to warm up the body for the asanas. This is followed by a series of asanas interspersed with relaxing poses. This series will be roughly the same for each lesson, with a slight variation in exercises. The more often you do the same exercises, the more you can feel the benefits of the exercise and the deeper you can get into the poses. The exercises also become more meditative the more often you do them and you can find more peace in the postures. The lesson ends with a final relaxation. In my private lesson I have special attention for you and I can adapt my lesson to your needs. If you have injuries or other things that limit you in practicing yoga, I will gladly adapt the exercises to you so that you can get the most out of your private lesson. In my lesson, the emphasis is also on finding peace and acceptance in yourself, so that you can really come to yourself during the lesson. If you have any questions about the class, send me a message!
