Why Hatha Yoga?
Hatha means ‘forceful’ in Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language. It was created to provide the Monks, that needed to be seated in meditation for long hours, with physical exercises so that their bodies would stay healthy.
Each class will stimulate the parasimpathetic nervous system, to make the body quiet and calm. An alternation between asanas =exercises slowly performed with awareness (respecting your own boundaries) and relaxation will also improve the coordination between body and mind and balance body, mind and spirit.
Hatha Yoga has so many health benefits that sometimes I’m still wondering why it hasn’t been included in our healthcare package yet! Hopefully that will soon come.
Who am I?
My name is Vanoucka, happily married with two children.
I am Dutch, I am from Amsterdam and lived for 15 years in Spain. For sports I was always spinning and jogging thinking that I wouldn’t sweat with Yoga. Then I tried Hatha yoga once and to my surprise I did sweat! The gift was that I found myself connected with my body again and was able to find peace within, be more at rest, connect with myself even though living a busy life. I was sold; though also continued to explore other forms of Yoga during 20 years.
Finding the time for myself during 1.5hrs on the mat, was an outcome that saved a stressful period. I decided to leave the corporate world and do a radical change that of pursuing my dream; As a child I’d attended the Classical Ballet school until the age of 12 and becoming a Yoga teacher felt actually very natural. Two and a half years ago I went to an Arhanta Ashram to become a Registered Yoga Alliance 200RYS Teacher, and have been teaching since a year. Meanwhile I’ve been doing many courses/workshops and pursuing further personal growth. I also became a Reconnective healing practionar and TR, as well as a NLP certified coach.
Please join me at my Hatha Yoga class. Together we’ll do the Sun Salutations and I’ll lead you through the series of Asanas that makes Hatha Yoga such an awesome, fun and complete form of Yoga!
