Yoga Klein Bonaire

Yoga on Klein Bonaire

Date: Saturday 15 Sept
Time: 6:45 - 9:15 am
Price: 20 usd

It has been a little dream of me to do an early morning yoga session on Klein Bonaire. So let's make this dream come true.

I'm being completely honest; I have no idea how it will work out exactly. Will there be too much wind (meaning sand everywhere :-)), will there be too much sun, are we going to get wet coming off the boat to get onto the beach, etc. etc.?? It is all new to me too. But let's just give it a try. 
Therefore we keep the price low this time. 
We are just going on an adventure together.

About the yoga:
All levels are welcome. We will enjoy a nice long meditation to start and then do a dynamic slow flow session. No crazy poses, just flowing with the body, breathing deeply and enjoying that magical and beautiful spot.

About the boat and where and when to meet:
Roan Jaspars will take us on his wonderful boat to the beach of Klein Bonaire. 

VERY IMPORTANT: we leave with the boat at 7am, so we meet at 6:45am. 

We meet in front of Div'Ocean at 6:45am. http://www.divoceanbonaire.com/
You can park your car in the parking of Caribbean Court and if it is full then just park outside the gate.
Caribbean Court is next to the Plaza hotel (Van der Valk).

We should arrive on Klein Bonaire around 7:30am, we have yoga until 8:45am and then we take the boat back. So back at Caribbean Court around 9:15am.

How to sign up:
We have limited spaces. If you want to join please send me a PM, please. We ask everyone to do a downpayment. 
Also please let me know if you need a yoga mat.

Just a suggestion: 
Because we might get wet legs and feet coming off the boat bring a towel and maybe where swimwear or shorts on the boat. And then you can change into your yoga pants on the beach. 
Maybe you even want a small swim after the session to refresh yourself, so make sure you have swimwear with you or on.
Also make sure to bring some water and maybe a little snack for after the yoga session.

 
 
 
Yin Yang XL sessions.png

Bonaire - Sorobon beach resort

I am happy to announce I'm hosting a YIN-YANG XL YOGA SESSION again. This time at Sorobon Beach Resort

Date: Sunday 26 August
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM


In this session we will focus mainly on the hips. We have lots of time to open and strengthen the biggest joint in our body and get deeper. 
We practice on the yoga deck next to the ocean. This will be wonderful because you will practice while breathing the healthy salty air, feeling the wind on your skin and overlooking the gorgeous Lac Bay. At the same time, this might be challenging because there will be things happening around you that might distract you; the sound of the birds, people on the beach, maybe a very strong wind. I guess a nice way to practice being mindful and keeping your focus within, although things happen around you in the outside world. 

Come and join me to work on healthy and happy hips.

Information:
Yin yoga is all about surrender and letting your muscles relax.
Yang yoga is more like a typical vinyasa flow class; keeping the body’s functionality and mobilizes the energy body to refresh the body’s vibrancy. When combined they compliment each other and balance out your energy. 

By practicing Yin yoga before Yang we can carry over Yin's very mindful way of practicing into our dynamic Yang practice. We truly benefit from the openness of the body and the stillness of the mind.

Yin Yoga:
Stimulates the meridians (energy channels) bringing balance to the organs in the body, improves flexibility and joint mobility, calms and balances the mind and body, reduces stress and anxiety, works deeply on the connective tissues (fascia, tendons and ligaments) and can prepare the practitioner for meditation practice.

Yang Yoga:
Strengthens and tones the body, improves flexibility and circulation, increases endurance, calms the mind down by inviting us to synchronize movement with breath, removes tension and obstacles in the body to allow breath and prana to flow.

Price: 
- 20 usd XL session only
- 40 usd XL session with lunch after at the Sorobon beach bar. 
For lunch you can choose a salad with fish, meat, cheese or a vegan option. Or you can choose the daily special. And it comes with a non-alcoholic beverage.

We have mats and other props at Sorobon. If you have your own mat or a yoga towel it might be nice to bring that. And please bring a big towel and maybe a smaller one for when you get your sweat on.
Aaah and of course, don't forget your bikini/swim shorts.....it will be lovely to have a swim in Lac Bay after the session.

Yin&Yang XL session heart opening

Bonaire - SMiling buddha yoga studio

Very happy to announce the 3rd Yin-Yang XL session at Smiling Buddha Yoga Studio.

Date: Sunday 20 May
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This session is all about HEART-OPENING.
Heart openers expand your chest and rib cage, making them more receptive and free. 
When you have a rounded back and your chest collapses, for example from spending long hours working at desks, bent over keyboards, it's very healthy to counteract this posture with heart openers.
Physically stretching the muscles in your chest, shoulders, and belly can create a deep emotional release, helping you to appreciate and honour yourself and your loved ones.

This XL session will bring you a feeling of lightness and contentment and will leave you feeling blissful.
