Yoga Tune Up®


Deze les combineert elementen van yoga, bewuste corrigerende oefeningen en zelfmassage op een intelligente maar ook speelse manier. In de lessen wordt gewerkt met zogenoemde Therapy Balls. Door deze ballen in combinatie met yogaoefeningen krijg je echt een diepe massage en inzicht in je “blinde vlekken”. Er wordt een gedetailleerde uitleg gegeven over het hoe en waarom van de oefening en een begeleide ontspanning aan het einde. Benieuwd naar jouw “blinde vlek”?

Op woensdag 19.00 at The Movement Practice.


Extra Care Pilates (mat les 50+)

Start 29 augustus 2017, dinsdagen 10:00-11:00 met Ellen Meijer. 
Omdat het lichaam op latere leeftijd wat anders nodig heeft dan een jonger lichaam zijn de Pilates oefeningen in deze les aangepast. De oefeningen zijn minder belastend voor de wervelkolom, maar zeker niet minder effectief. Nadruk ligt op een goede houding. We gaan de spieren van de romp versterken waardoor stabiliteit en mobiliteit worden vergroot.
Cursus van 6 weken voor €60,-

Creative Dance for Kids


Creative Dance invites the child to explore movement and dance using visual arts, drawing, and music as a source of inspiration. In Creative Dance we play with kinesthetic and musical intelligence as well as inter/intra personal capacities. It is important that the children find space and time to develop all of them. Based on the “Orff Schulwerk Method” applied to Dance Education and on the “Gardner’s multiple intelligence Theory“.
