Yoga has a transformative and therapeutic effect. When you are struggling with an addiction background, psychological / psychiatric or physical issues, the practice of yoga offers a powerful support. It can also make a positive contribution to the road to recovery.
A lesson is made up of the practice of yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation and relaxation. The lessons have a coaching character and there is room for personal guidance.
In the warm atmosphere of the class you are seen and existing issues or limitations taken into account. In a safe way you enter into contact with yourself and learn to explore your own boundaries. The lessons are also dynamic and challenging in order to encourage you, wherever possible, to grow and develop.
The body postures are built up step by step, working on the right technique and connecting to the body. You learn to work with the breath and to release unnecessary muscle tension. You train in self-observation and practice conscious presence. You promote emotional and mental clarity, tranquility and balance.
The lessons are characterized by a positive approach with an emphasis on stimulating self-acceptance, working towards new possibilities and increasing your inner strength.
Yoga is not competitive. You practice at your own pace and within your own process.
Experience with yoga is not necessary.
The lessons are funded by GGZ Arkin/Roads and Stichting Welzijn Diemen. Personal contribution: € 1.50 per lesson.
In addition to clients of ARKIN/ROADS, people with lower incomes and local residents are welcome in the lessons.
