Our focus is on Yin and Yang.
YogaGarden focuses on the Taoistic principles of Yin and Yang, the two fundamental and complementary main forces of the Universe. Yang is characterized by strength, rhythm and repetition, Yin by softness, stillness and ease.
A healthy and fulfilled life contains a healthy balance of both these aspects: too much Yang can turn someone rigid and aggressive, too much Yin may result in weakness or depression. It is part of our Yoga practice to develop the intuition and the wisdom to know what we need and when we need it. Some people are more prone to yin, others to yang, but everybody needs both. And the practice of postures is just the beginning: as the mind calms down and the body opens up, a well of vibrant energy emerges, allowing us to explore our full potential as human beings.
The two main pillars of our trainings are anatomy and philosophy. We believe that both disciplines are fundamental in learning to understand our bodies and those of our students, as well as our patterns of behavior, strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge is what guides us towards understanding and transcending our challenges and struggles.
All our trainings are led by Marcel van de Vis Heil and Anat Geiger, both teachers with extensive experience, who have taught students and formed teachers for many years.
