Do you love surfing and yoga? Whether you are a pro or a beginner (both surfing and yoga), you are welcome. This will be a different kind of retreat. There will be no fixed rules and time schedules. We will co-create this retreat together. Breakfast, yoga and surfing times depend on when the best surfing is possible. You book your own flights, but we will fly from Amsterdam to Lisbon together and rent a car to take us to our B&B. Read More

Yoga improves cellular longevity

Yesterday I appeared in an item for Dutch television (EenVandaag) on a recent scientific study by the All Indian Institute of Medical Science in New Delhi. This is one of the first studies to demonstrate that yoga positively influences cell renewal and may even slow down the ageing process in healthy individuals.

Their practice included asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), and dhayna (meditation). All study participants showed significant changes in cardinal and metabotrophic biomarkers, which suggests that yoga may improve cellular longevity.Read More

The stories we tell ourselves

What really strikes me time and again is the importance of the stories we tell each other and of the stories we tell ourselves. How we tell our story greatly affects our healing. I have learned this myself the hard way. Like many people, I came to yoga through an injury. Years ago I had an accident that seriously damaged my neck and shoulder. My life as I knew it changed suddenly. I learned the hard way that the stories we tell ourselves can keep us from healing and can hold us back from experiencing life fully.Read More
