Week 1: Good things happen...

We will kick off the new year with reflecting on our priorities over term 1. In our 'Yoga for the mind' opening sequence in all casual Yoga for Everybody classes we will shed some light on what it means to know your priorities and how life-changing it can become when you proactively set your priorities instead of letting events, circumstances or other people dictate them... Knowing your priorities is a tool for conscious living and we will explore what this can mean for our lives, at present and going forward while being gentle with ourselves and nourishing ourselves with self-compassion and Yoga practice!

 This is for you...

* if you are new to Yoga, then this is a great and gentle way to start, or

* you want to utilize some of the time you spend on chairs each day to do something good for yourself at the same time and learn the moves how to weave in some fitness while on your chair anyway, or

* you might feel limited in your mobility for some reason and wish to explore a gentle way to invite some expansion to your range of movement

Whatever the reasons may be, learning to 'chair-ish' the time we spend on our chairs is extremely beneficial for our well-being and well-feeling.

Testimonials

I have enjoyed a lot having Maja as a yoga teacher. I felt good and relaxed after all her classes as she makes a strong focus on breathing and relaxation. She always incorporates the spiritual aspect of yoga in her practice and it helped me to develop an awareness of myself. I have attended her Sankalpa workshop where I've learned how to listen to my intuition and find my deep and heartfelt desire. I can't thank Maja enough for her kindness, warm smile, and support throughout the years!

Marion Pavé

Thanks so much for the Sankalpa Workshop, Maja. My wife and I really enjoyed it.
The workshop had a lot to offer and we got a lot out of it! We both left feeling energized and ready to put into practice what we learnt! It helped us to create clarity for us on our path as entrepreneurs.

John Davey

Maja is a beautiful soul, I practiced with her for a few months and loved every session. She has a kind and thoughtful way of teaching that makes the classes a peaceful place to connect.

Viviane Bereiziat

Maja's guidance had been nothing short of inspiring and enlightening. We enjoyed a 4-day Yoga & Meditation retreat with Maja and her gentle style made us feel very welcome and was very encouraging for our individual paths. We cannot thank her enough for her hospitality and kindness. Maja has a natural way of connecting with and lifting up people to feel energized and relaxed! Our time with Maja remains one of the happiest memories from our entire trip!

Meghan & Hannah, USA

Thank you for your wonderful beach yoga classes which I immensely enjoyed!

Lynda Simcic

Love the Yoga with Maja on the beach facing the rising sun and taking in the fresh air - magic! I am very happy with Maja's instructions and how she guides us with her voice while also showing the postures by example.

Sigrid

Each week Maja lovingly prepares a sacred space for the group to practise quietude and meditation - I always feel warmly welcomed and enjoy to share in the beautiful stillness that descends during these sessions. I always leave feeling somewhat more empowered by the experience of group mediation.

Marg Kerkvliet

Meditation offers a calming refuge, without the pressure of doctrine or agenda - simply a place to be ...and find peace.

ABOUT
Yoga and Intuition is nourishment for mind, body and soul.

We offer the opportunity to connect the dots and to fill the void our western lifestyle produces mentally, physically and spiritually. We think too much and can’t find calm, we eat too much and still feel empty, we experience busy lives but no fulfillment - anchor yourself in a new way with our wholistic Yoga practice, using your intuition for fulfilling self-care.
