Quality of the Month

Awareness

“Breath is the vehicle of consciousness and so, by its slow measured observation and distribution, we learn to tug our attention away from external desires toward a judicious, intelligent awareness.”– B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Life


Dear Friends,

 

We often speak of yoga as a way of creating a greater integration between mind and body. But often, it may seem like our busy minds get in the way and distract us from deepening fully into our practice - or even getting to the mat.

Breath offers an important vehicle for settling both mind and body and connecting us with a deeper level of awareness, as Mr. Iyengar notes in this week's quote. Breathing exercises can be one of the most powerful ways to get us settled and ready for practice.

 

I invite you to join our weekly classes, practicing together breathing, awareness, while we take care of our wellbeing.

Make Your Own Natural Cosmetics 2

December 15, 2018

13.30-15.00

Zetveld 10, De Wilp

 

We are very excited to offer another workshop for making natural cosmetics! Give yourself the best Christmas gift!

 

The first one was a winning hit and per popular demand here is the second one.

 

You are invited to learn how to make your own cosmetics! We will use only natural ingredients together with the purest essential oils. We are going into drier and colder months and our skin will be asking for good nourishment and care. 

 

The skin is the biggest organ in our body and more often than not we ignore its' health by putting lotions, creams, soaps that are full of chemicals. Not only they cause damage to our skin but they also get inside our bodies making us chronically sick.

 

Chemical agents cause big havoc in our bodies. Our endocrine system, respiratory system, our entire organism gets damaged. Modern society suffers greatly from asthma, skin allergies, other allergies, infertility, hormonal dysfunctions. 

 

But there is a solution for keeping our skin healthy and youthful by using only what comes from nature. 

 

In this workshop we will make two products:

 

Body Butter, 200ml We will use only pure ingredients and essential oils. This body butter is very moisturising and nourishing for the skin, especially for the dry and cold months.

The regular value for this normally is over 20 euros.

 

Face Toner, 50ml  We will again use only pure ingredients and essential oils. The regular value for such a product would be 30 euros. This toner is hydrating, cleansing, nourishing.

 

 

Price is 30 euros. Includes all the materials.

 

Last day for registration and payment is November 30.

 

Register by sending an email to: info@trueyogaandessentials.com

 

Transportation to/from Groningen can be provided for a small charge upon request. Pick up in bus stop Marum is free. 

 

Looking forward to sharing my experience with all of you!
