Zomer Yoga in August

I will be leaving for Thailand in August and September, to receive more yoga training and to come back with a lot of new inspiration for you! Due to my absence, the schedule will look a bit different in August.

Nienke Arts will be teaching on Mondays and Wednesdays in August (starting August 3rd and ending August 31st) in park Brakkenstein from 19:00 – 20.15 hours

In case of bad weather on Wednesday, Nienke has an indoor option (click here for map) Nienke combines classical yoga positions with inspiration from power yoga, ashtanga yoga and the five Tibetans.

She focuses on breathing while standing in various yoga positions which she puts in a certain order, all together making a flow in movement. Sometimes including breathing exercises at the end of the class, before meditating. Mostly given on music, but when doing yoga outside focusing on the natural sounds of the wind, birds and the river, besides the focus on the breath. Nienke did a three year teacher training and went to India and I’m happy she is willing to teach @ Zomer Yoga Nijmegen for us!

The classes are for all levels. Don’t forget to register for Nienkes classes if you want to join. Classes take place when the weather allows us and with at least 4 yogis.

Now available: Zen by Sen sustainable yoga wear

Zen_by_Sen_achter

I’m so proud to tell you that on June 5th Zen by Sen, our new webshop, was officially launched! When being on the mat (almost) daily, I wanted to be able to switch between pairs of leggings, preferably sustainable ones, made out of recycled materials. I found that the leggings in The Netherlands were either organic, but then in just 1 colour, or very colorful, but then not sustainably produced.
And I wanted both. This is what happened next. Lees verder

Let’s go outside!

Zomer Yoga NijmegenHet nieuwe seizoen Outdoor Zomer Yoga Nijmegen gaat van start en wel vanaf 11 mei aanstaande. Dit betekent dat we vanaf dan elke week 4 lessen buiten hebben, op verschillende plaatsten in Nijmegen. Allereerst het geliefde park Brakkenstein, het startpunt waar het allemaal begonnen is. Vorig jaar kwam daar de Waal bij en nieuw dit jaar is het Goffertpark. Verschillende plekken dus, met ook verschillende soorten lessen, die voor iedereen te volgen zijn. In de ene les ligt het accent meer op kracht, in de andere les meer op flow en de derde les is weer rustiger. Voor ieder wat wils dus.
Kijk hier voor het exacte rooster

New class – Strong Core Yoga

Strong Core YogaIn February, we will start with two extra classes: a Strong Core Yoga class on Tuesdays from 20.15 – 21.30 and a Flow Hatha Yoga class on Wednesdays from 20.15 – 21.30 hours. The Flow Hatha Yoga class is the same as the one on Tuesday at 18.45. The Strong Core Hatha Yoga class is new. Having a strong core can really boost your practice and has many benefits. Lees verder

Zomer Yoga goes Indoor from September 16th

FREE SESSIONS ON 16 & 17 SEPTEMBER

Zomer Yoga Nijmegen goes indoor, starting this September. The classes will place in the artistic industrial building of DZIGA, located at the Honigcomplex, Waalbandijk 20, right next to the Waal. I love the area where more and more (cultural) activities and initiatives are carried out, such as het Zomerkwartier and de Meesterproef. So I’m happy to go there!

TUESDAYS – Regular classes

The outdoor classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays will continue until the end of September. This means that the Tuesday class will continue outdoors until we move  indoors from September 16th onwards.

NEW! WEDNESDAYS – Foundation course

We will start with a 14 week Yoga Foundation course on Wednesdays from 18.45 – 20.15 hours. This course is especially for those who want to start with Yoga or for those who already have some experience but would like to establish a stronger foundation in asanas, breathing exercises and meditation.

Because I love to show you the new place, the first sessions on September 16th and 17th will be FREE of charge!

So lets turn inwards as well as indoors 🙂

Na 9 uiteenlopende locaties is het einde van het seizoen alweer in zicht. De locatie van de 10e en laatste les van deze serie pop-up yogalessen is bekend en deze keer kondig ik hem alvast aan: de Vasim! Het zou fantastisch zijn om het groots af te sluiten, want het is per slot van rekening een hele mooie grote ruimte die we kunnen vullen. Neem als het kan je eigen matje mee, de vloer kan wel wat fris zijn namelijk.

En speciaal omdat het de laatste pop-up yogales van het seizoen is, is de les voor de halve prijs, dus maar 5 euro! Dus spread the word en neem vrienden/familie/kennissen mee 🙂

Tijden: van 11.00 tot 12.30 uur
Locatie: Noordingang de Vasim
Aanmelden: via Facebook of stuur een mailtje naar info@zomeryoganijmegen.nl

Locatie dinsdagavond aan de Waal

Ooijpolder yogaDe eerste les op zondagmiddag tussen 17.00 – 18.15 buiten in park Brakkenstein is achter de rug en we hadden fantastisch weer! Vanaf nu is er naast de zondag in park Brakkenstein ook elke dinsdagavond tussen 19.00 – 20.15 uur les in de Ooijpolder aan de Waal. We verzamelen bij de witte voetgangersbrug naast de Waalbrug en lopen dan samen naar de overkant om een mooi plekje te zoeken.
