Waves of Life...

"Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction..."

The ocean... I could stare at it endlessly. I've always felt connected to it. In Faro, I live quite close to it. Oh, how I enjoy walking its beaches with my sweet doggies Oscar and Mitsy (and my lover David, of course ;)) Everyone needs a change of environment once in a while to turn inwards, feeling closeness to mother earth. There's an untranslatable term for it in Dutch: "uitwaaien" - taking a walk in the wind to clear one's mind. How lucky and grateful I am that I can do that so close to home!

How fitting that I'm writing this newsletter at the seaside. I'm on holiday in Ericeira, a small town picturesquely draped across sandstone cliffs above the blue Atlantic. It is renowned for its spectacular ocean vistas, and when I gaze out across the churning waters, calmness washes over me. A few days to myself, alone... I wish that for everyone. Time to reconnect with yourself, really listen to your own voice and respond to its needs.

This summer, I spent a lot of time swimming in the beautiful Atlantic. It cleanses me energetically. The calming rhythm of its waters moving up and down the costline is the perfect background for meditation and turning inwards as well. If you get the chance, take the time to go to the wondrous waters of Mother Earth, wash yourself and heal yourself... it works wonders!

Maybe that is because life, in essence, is like the ocean. The water washing on the shores is like breathing. Life, like the ocean, comes in waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, sometimes it’s overwhelming. And just when you thought you’ve seen it all, you’ll be caught by surprise that there’s more to come. There was a full moon as well! Be it full moon or new moon, its powerful energy has so much influence on water. As humans we consist of water, and this element is also connected to our emotions... Are you aware of that and how do you deal with it? Perhaps meditation will help you, or taking a swim in the ocean.

Life has a way of testing our anchors and tempting us to drift. Nevertheless, if our anchors are correctly placed, they will hold no matter the force of the wind, the strength of the tide, or the height of the waves. Life is a cycle, and it is comforting to know deep inside that there will always be something beautiful to look forward to.

Next time you're near the sea, why not take a moment hear the water, feel the wind, taste the salty air on your lips. Learn from the waves and enjoy the ride!
 

Love and light, Sanne

~ XXL Yin Yoga + Reiki ~

The Netherlands | Bindi

Let energy flow through you like the currents of the ocean...

During this XXL lesson we will explore a unique combination of Qi Cong, Reiki and soothing Yin Yoga. Energy, inspiration, balance, relaxation, awareness... and most of all, a lot of loving attention.

The lesson starts with attention to the breath and with the activation of energy (Qi) with Qi Cong. The path of self-healing is further explored with breathing exercises and Reiki that you can apply yourself. 

The lesson is concluded with relaxing Yin Yoga, a peaceful form of yoga that has a grounding effect and literally gives a feeling of inner peace and more space in the body. You will learn how to use Reiki on yourself and in the various yoga postures you will receive distant Reiki as well to stimulate energy flow and relaxation.

You are the key to self-healing!

~ Breath Massage & Yoga Massage ~

The Netherlands | MOOD

The waves of the sea are sometimes called the lungs of the earth. Do you see the resemblance between their rhythm and your breath? Our movements, our thoughts? Or even the flow of a massage? This fall, you're welcome at MOOD to experience and learn about two unique forms of massage. A great opportunity to expand your sea of knowledge as a massage therapist!

BREATH MASSAGE
12 and 13 September

We often forget what impact our way of breathing has on our health. The speed, length, depth, direction and location of the breath tell their own story. As a massage therapist, it really makes sense to first focus on the breath, feel it and move with it. In this course you learn to assess the breath, to apply different breathing techniques and to integrate breath as a part of your massage.


YOGA MASSAGE I: THE WORLD OF
19, 20 September + 17, 18 October

Yoga and massage can be combined in Yoga Massage, a powerful mix that combines various healing elements to bring the body back into balance and restore or stimulate energy flow. It consists of a coordinated combination of yoga, massage, mindfulness and acupressure. The massaged person, in a state of relaxation and presence, is guided into yoga-like stretches and receives a massage with the help of thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet. During this course, attention is focused on (Yin) yoga postures and massage techniques and a way to combine them. We also discuss and apply stretches and massage, breathing and meditation techniques.

Yin Yoga & Live Piano
~ Indian Summer Celebration ~


The Netherlands | Het Derde Erf

A new season is coming, like a new wave washing upon the shore...

At the end of the summer we move from very yang (summer) to all yin (winter). A period in which there is more attention for turning inwards, letting go and creating stillness. The energy of change. It is a time of harmonization, to turn inwards and reap the benefits of everything you have invested. 

Caroline and I will celebrate Indian summer with you with the powerful, healing combination of Yin Yoga and live piano music. In Yin Yoga, positions are held longer. You do not use your body to get into a position, but use the position to feel your body better. I will take you inwards with my calm and healing voice, focusing on acceptance, creating a space where you can be yourself and enter into valuable, loving connections.

Caroline's life has always been dominated by two important themes: music and emotion. Her intuitive piano music is like a journey, with peaks and valleys, playful and then back into the depths. Sometimes it is confronting, sometimes it flows. And she would like to share it.
