Back in the buzz after a few weeks in the North West and a hot little Margaret River stint, prepared to fire for my next projects and travels. Spent the weekend in the aura of movement maven and fascia lover @mumu_morwitzer aka @art_of_motion_academy Australia. Feeling strong, fluid and energised , knowing that the combination of increased amounts of love, play, rest, ocean and desert time but also my amplified fascia vinyasa practices all play their part here. I'll be sharing with you more as I’m settling my next dates for teacher trainings in Australia (Brisbane / Perth / Melbourne it’s your turn!) In these trainings you learn a yoga that lets you experience and train your body in a rejuvenating, strengthening, elasticising, potent fashion. Your fascia is involved with every movement. It's the organ of communication and force transmission and much more. When it becomes restricted and immobile, it will limit your movement and perception, your sensing (your whole being!) causing tension and very often distress. As yogis and movers we aim for a rich experience of life and living. As yoga teachers, we want to share this journey with our students. It's time to leave the painfully hard foam rollers, stubborn myofascial release balls, and (very strange) fascia blasters and stretch benches, to let your fascia live through breath, movement play, a love for somatic mindfulness and rest. #lustforlife #fasciavinyasa #yoga #onwards #fascialbalance #fasciaflow All photos taken by my friend, Pilot of crazy adventures Kees Bakker from Carnarvon, North Western Oz.
Living with essential speed. It’s my end and my opening. I can find all of it here, where the desert meets the sea. Recalibration time in the North West. Time to sit with the nature that shapes me. Time to allow creativity and remembrance to emerge, to review and retire expired ideas, to distil my next moves, to delve deeper into my studies and work, to develop new trainings, with a set pace, lightly and in repose. The thought of slowing down is alluring to so many of us, but it can also be quite difficult (or that’s what we tell ourselves basically). We think that we aren’t in control of or can't keep up with the rush around us, which leaves us tense, tender and confused. So, what do we do? We keep going. It seems paradoxical, but the secret to feel peaceful and at the same time flooded by life is to plainly ease off. When there’s a lot on your mind, it may seem hard to sense the opportunity, to make the first step and to suddenly stand still. Yet all you need to do is to have the heart to breathe it all out. Breathe. It. All. Out. It’s a space you commit to, so you can touch this life again. It's there waiting for you. Time will slow down for you to just be (and be fine with it too). It certainly won’t run away. There is no need to disappear for weeks (even though I highly recommend it), to find your rhytm. Just take frequent intentional breaks: a few seconds, minutes, hours, an unscheduled afternoon or a few days that are just yours, and yours and yes: yours. So you can shake it all off and feel the tenderness of all this here, now. #lifeisbeautiful #fasciavinyasa #yoga #essentials #wonderlust
True understanding and learning really only happens when the heart is there in the first place. My journey with @anatomytrainsofficialI began 2 years ago and created a somatic and cognitive wildfire. Thank you @mumu_morwitzer and @bonzfurz aka @art_of_motion_academy for having me and being über-passionate, inspirational teachers in the past 10 days. You know you've lit another fire. I'm on the road again. Time to digest and integrate up in the North West for a few weeks before joining @anatomytrainsofficial AU/NZ and @art_of_motion_academy in Perth again.

I'm moving...a lot.. and I'm stunned by the current affairs happening to my calendar at the moment. So, right now I'm finding myself in Melbourne again. Pic 1 by @nickelisseos at @bodyflowyoga Pic 2 @art_of_motion_academy moments Pic 3 I'm featured with 'A students perspective' in the @anatomytrainsofficial current emag! (If you read the article, let me know what you think about it. You can get it for free on the anatomytrains.com or anatomytrainsAustralia.com websites or via their, or my FB pages.) Aside from spending all my coins on coffee , this time I’m in the @anatomytrainsofficial world (again), attending the Anatomy Trains in Motion course taught by the smart and fun @mumu_morwitzer and @bonzfurz teaching duo. And because I’m so IN IT, I thought I'd better pass on the love to you yogis (and all other movers). I do suggest (if you can) to take the opportunity of getting a (long lasting) taste of the Anatomy Trains in application. (Warning: It's super rich, hence it's also highly addictive, invigorating your knowledge, confidence and skills of anatomy in application in your own practice, your teaching and especially your students experience with you.)

Relating to your self, with yourself, within yourself in new - sometimes seemingly 'impossible ' ways - exploring, navigating through the unknown of your body map is a sweetly powerful way to deepen your relationship to life itself. To love. Keep on testing the new waters, you'll always win. After short and absolutely delicious offline- surfari to Western Australia's South West I'm on my way to Melbourne for my next adventures with @anatomytrainsofficial and @art_of_motion_academy .

Hey Melbourne and Christchurch! After a couple of extra-fertile meetings at the HQ's of @anatomytrains australia & @art_of_motion_academy / Australia I'll be leaping into more training in the world of fascia and movement, as well as manual therapy. Both have changed my practice and teaching and are the pivotal reason for the turn and uplift of my work (and my career pathway, really). The trainings are for every yogi, mover & shaker of any kind who intend to up their skills, confidence and client oriented efficiency. There are a few last spots left (if you book in, tell them I sent you and make sure to give me a hi and a hug when you're there!)
