Yoga-Weekend in Zeeland
Joy & Eddie
We are teachers in yoga, music, martial arts, dance and movement. We combine our passion for music and movement to inspire people. During our classes we let people explore the possibilities of their own body and mind.
Joy has studied musical theater, travelled the world while working as a singer and dancer and found that teaching is her passion. Now she is an over 500 hours certified yoga teacher in hatha, ashtanga vinyasa, yin, vinyasa flow, meditation and pranayama. At the moment she teaches more than 10 classes every week at different yoga studios in The Hague. Eddie has studied at the conservatory and is a professional musician, played over the world, wrote a book and loves to teach. From a young age he also found a love for movement and has been practicing martial arts for over 10 years, adding yoga for the last 2 years.

Yin & Sound
Joy & Eddie geven les in het Engels, maar zijn Nederlands.
Update mbt Corona: Kijk op 1,5 meter retraites voor de aanpassingen in onze accommodaties en programma's n.a.v. overheidsinstructies.
Together Joy and Eddie found that their passion for music, movement and teaching makes a perfect combination. During the last 2 years they developed a series of classes, which they have been teaching mostly in The Hague. This retreat focuses on the Yin & Sound class they have created. Yin & Sound combines a relaxing yin practice with sounds from live instruments. Joy will guide you safely through poses and movement while Eddie accompanies the practice with live music and sound. Adding music and sounds to a yin practice will help you get deeper into your poses.

Please note: We both speak Dutch and English. Classes will be taught in English unless all are Dutch speaking.
Programma: Yin & Sound
Time to treat yourself! This retreat is for everyone who would like to slow down for a few days. Recharge, connect to the heart and deepen your yoga practice. This retreat is designed for you to nourish and nurture your body & mind. Let’s take a journey to our true selves, letting go of the stresses of our daily lives.
Autumn represents a time of letting go and as the leaves fall we can take this example to shake off things that are not serving us anymore. As the weather cools and we move towards winter, we can take the time to connect with ourselves. This time of the year is perfect for practicing letting go, being grounded in our body and giving us the opportunity to relax and unwind.
The whole weekend will be nice and relaxed moving with the yin energy in our body guided by live instruments. Using live instruments, causing vibrations, will help us calm the mind and body and get deeper into our poses. This is helpful because with our yin poses we dive into the deeper tissues of the body. In a yin practice we will hold poses for a longer period of time so we can reach these deeper tissues. We will also explore the yin energy in a gentle moving meditation.
In this special retreat with Yin & Sound we will take a powerful journey through yin poses and movements guided by beautiful sounds. We will support you with the magical vibrations of singing bowls, guitar, vocals and more. As we take you along our journey we strive to find a place of deep surrender.
