Community Class - Beginners class & mixer
If you find Yoga-studios intimidating because of all these flexible, able-bodied people practicing for something that looks like the circus, we've got you and we get you. Join this casual Sunday-event for a knowledgable yet lighthearted introduction to Yoga and the community at Atelier Du Mon.
Time & Location
03 Oct 2021, 13:00 – 14:15
Antwerpen, Happaertstraat 26, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium
About the Event
As Yoga came to the West it has been associated with very flexible people doing (what looks like) back-breaking postures and standing on their hands all the time. Luckily, this has very little to actually do with Yoga and we therefore invite all beginners for an introduction to Yoga for anyone who has been curious but never felt welcome in a traditional Western Yoga-studio. Yoga truly is for every Body and we're so so happy to show you that you (yea, you!) also can practice this wonderful thing called Yoga.
If you've ever said "I'm not flexible enough to do Yoga" this is the class for you to join. Because really, saying that you're not flexible enough to do Yoga, is like saying you're too dirty to take shower. We promise you a lighthearted approach to this Yoga-thing everyone seems to be talking about and show you, that there's much more to the practice than looking good on social media (much more!).
It does look cool to headstand. It does look cool to do the splits. For sure.
Isn't also cool to take a deep breath in traffic before being really upset at everyone else?
Isn't also cool to be really kind to yourself and trusting that you're doing your best?
This is also Yoga.
Calming down and feeling safe in a world that is contantly asking more - or less - of us.
Who are we:
Atelier Du Mon has recently opened in Antwerp (July 2021) and are a holistic health house. What this mean is, that we focus on the whole human rather than just the physical, mental or spiritual aspect. Therefore, we have skilled therapists and a wonderful cafe attatched to the studio, as well as Yoga for all levels. We offer dynamic Yoga-lessons but also prenatal-, beginners- and slow-classes with more focus on breath, stillness and meditations. All to give a better idea of what taking care of ourselves also can look like. We aspire to hold a non-competitive space where it's trul enough to just show up. Also if you're just showing up to treat yourself with a good espresso. We hold space for it all and can't wait to welcome you.
Introduction to Yoga; explore the physical aspect of Yoga on a down to earth level where everyone can follow (no you don't need to be able to touch your toes!), get a simple breath-tool to calm down your nervous-system post covid-life and dive into a short guided meditation.
Introduction to Yoga-philosophy; what does Yoga mean and why do we practice it?
Get your hot autumn-special drink (and maybe a pastry, why not?), stick around to share experiences, make a friend or ask questions to your teacher Nanna.
Who's your teacher:
Nanna Hofman works fulltime as a teacher of Yoga as well as a mind-body coach and a physiotherapist. She's all about making the practice available and safe for every Body, and truly believes that Yoga is for all. She's teaching anatomy to future Yoga-teachers all to ensure that there's proper guidance for anyone wanting to embark the journey of Yoga. Next to the physical aspect of the practice she's passionate about everyone coming to her class knows that they've done enough - and that they ARE enough. Expect knowledgeable guidance accompanied by cheerfulness and a "you can do this!"-attitude.
