Moving into stillness – a yin yoga & mindfulness meditation retreat by Annemieke van Noort
February 23 – march 1
What happens when you sit still? In this retreat you experience the deep connection of body & mind by enjoying ‘nothingness’.
Allow yourself to slow down from the every day buzz and become still in this Yin-Yoga and Meditation retreat where we will focus on becoming more aware of the different layers of our being; the physical, energetic, emotional and mental body.
The yoga and meditation practices may move us into our inner space and allow us to experience that moving into stillness is a way to nurture and befriend ourselves and awaken to our lives in a refreshed and more open way.
Annemieke van Noort received her professional training in teaching Yin-Yoga from Sarah Powers and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga from Katiza Satya. Annemieke has worked with a great range of teachers from Govinda Kai, Michael Gannon to Max Strom and Jill Sattersfield. Eastern wisdom traditions play an important part in Annemieke’s life and she has devoted herself to the Buddhist practices of meditation.
Annemieke, born and raised in Holland, is a committed meditator and Yoga teacher with a keen interest in yoga philosophy. In her teachings she interweaves the yoga practices with Buddhist meditation techniques. She has a warm and calm presence, a clear and inspiring way of transmitting her knowledge and an unbiased attention for every individual student.
A normal day in this retreat includes two intense and deeply relaxing practices. During our morning yoga practice we’ll engage in a vinyasa style of asana practice to wake up and stretch the body, whereas in the afternoon practice we’ll focus on the more stationary Yin-poses, the energetic body and mindfulness meditation. Each practice will be a combination of meditation, asana, breathing and visualization practices as we explore the different layers of our being. Practices are suitable for all levels of experience.
