Special Classes: February 2018

by Delight Yoga, 01-Feb-2018

Special Classes

Yoga has so many more qualities than just the physical practice on the mat (asana). You may have experienced some magic during a class, leaving energized and relaxed and with a feeling of more spaciousness. But in fact, this magical feeling can stay with you when you take the practice with you off the mat. The key is to apply yoga to our daily lives and to experience the present Now in all little things we do. This might seem difficult in the beginning, but no worries, take it slow - step by step - this can be everyone's reality.

To inspire you to take yoga off the mat and support you in this yoga journey, we offer Special Classes. All special classes can be booked through the regular schedule which means they can be done with your current membership or card, or by a Delight Guest (single class payment). 

Below you find the special classes for the coming month.

Come and join the beauty of life through dance, chanting, meditation and more!

Yin Special Class

With Marije Paternotte
De Clercstraat | 2 February, 2018 | 20:00 - 21:30

Join Marije Paternotte in this rejuvenating and revitalizing special Yin Yoga Class!
Yin Yoga is a practice that emphasizes pulling and compressing of the connective tissue and the joints in the body – rather than stretching the muscles. This practice also stimulates the flow of Chi (Life Force) through the meridians and their respective organs. This is done by passively holding seated or supine postures for 3-5 minutes. Practicing in this way creates space and ease in the body, flexibility and suppleness in the joints, and will enhance your vitality and overall health. Since there is a strong meditative component to this practice, it has a calming effect on your mind and is a doorway into Mindfulness Meditation.

Healing Yoga

With Ingeborg Timmerman
Weteringschans | 9 February, 2018 | 20:00 – 21:30 

Connect to who you really are. Be free in all your bodies. Mentally, energetically and physically.
We will use different movements derived from various teachings, such as Hatha Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, Tibetan Buddhist Practices.

We will connect to our pelvis and spine, and learn how to move from here. Loosening the hip joints.
Use your voice to free tension in your mouth and mind, and learn how to work with blocked energy and how to free it up; purifying the nadi’s. Turn your senses inwards to experience your energy body and allow space within your mind. When your body is open, Prana (life-force) can flow and our lives become more effortless, free and happy.

Expect the unexpected from stillness to moving fully.

Osho Meditation

With Ilanit de Wilde
Nieuwe Achtergracht | 16 February, 2018 | 20:00 – 21:30 

In order to live a more fulfilled life, you will want to get to know your full potential, your true Self. Meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness.   The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.   Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions.   Osho Active Meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho over a period of time to enable us to consciously express and experience repressed feelings and emotions, and learn the knack of watching our habitual patterns in a new way.

Bookable through the regular schedule from  February 10th

With Stacey Griffin

This special Yin class offers you the possibility to combine the deep relaxation that arrives in the body and the mind from the Yin practice with beautiful live music.

Dance Meditation

With Stefanie van der Zwaal
Prinseneiland | 23 February, 2018 | 20:00 – 21:30 

Dance meditation is a form of active meditation which offers the possibility to connect to what lives inside of yourself. It is an exercise in becoming silent and witnessing yourself, the thoughts, emotions, experiences, of everything inside you. The movement allows you to think less and experience more and surrender to the wisdom of the body. In a dance meditation, the dancer will go on a journey, sometimes following the movements of the body and sometimes experiencing the effect of specific movements. Sometimes through different musical rhythms, sometimes dancing to the sound of silence.

Bookable through the regular schedule from February 17th
