My best wishes for a wonderful 2016! Hope the New Year will bring you all great adventures, splendid health, good times with friends and family, and the financial situation which will allow you to make choices.
For me, the beginning of this New Year means my sabbatical has come to an end, and I’m really looking forward to wonderful new beginnings for The Dynamic Spine.
As some of you may know, I relocated to Europe, and The Dynamic Spine found a new home in the wonderful city of Antwerp.
As always, my classes will focus on Yoga as a tool towards health and well being. I am starting off with Yoga for Back Care, Yoga for Scoliosis, Yoga for Babyboomers and Yoga for Athletes. Of course I will still conduct some regular Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa classes geared towards students of all ages, seeking a steady and safe method to build up strength and flexibility.
To me, health is much more than the absence of sickness and disease. Health is a state where all your body systems function well and harmoniously, allowing you to feel full of vitality and bursting with energy when life is kind, but where you also have the physical and mental strength to cope with life’s challenges and difficult moments.
Yoga is about balance, and I firmly believe that health, feeling and looking good are neither found through austerity and deprivation, nor by overexhaustion and too much effort, but by making correct choices. The choice to do a few exercises everyday, and to remain flexible, strong and balanced through life. The choice to replace junk food by tasty, nurturing and healthy food which makes you look and feel good.. The choice to look at life through a screen of negativity, or to wake up each day and decide it’s going to be a great day.
