Take your Yin Yoga practice & your health to the next level!
Tune in to the Winter season with this special workshop. Come and join Yin Yoga teacher Marjon and acupuncturist Roslyn Go. You will be guided through a sequence designed especially for the Winter season, ending with an acupuncture session to top it off.
Yin Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine draw from the same source. We follow the ancient Chinese view on the body and mind – seeing it as one. We start our workshop with Yin Yoga, ending with an acupuncture session. This deepens the effect of your Yin practice by working precisely on the corresponding meridians & acupuncture points. Both in Yin Yoga and Acupuncture we follow the 5 Element theory, seeing our bodies, emotional wellbeing and state of mind as a reflection of the world and nature around us. This workshop is last in a series of 4, aligning our bodies with the seasons.
In the Winter Special we will work on the Water element, which belongs to the season of Winter. Water is symbolic for inner wisdom, willpower, vitality and living in tune with your unique essence. In our bodies the bones, joints, lower back, kidneys, urinary bladder and ears are ruled by the Water element. We will translate this in a sequence working on finding fluidity and strength in the back and legs, allowing the body to store up energy.

Note on the acupuncture session:
The purpose is simply to help calm and re-balance the body. Specific points are chosen to help detox the body and mind of environmental toxins. This maximizes stress-release and the ability of the body to heal and recharge itself.
Please note this is not the proper venue to have your unique and specific health concerns addressed. For individual diagnoses and treatment we advice a separate appointment to start your personal treatment plan.
Yin Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Marjon discovered yoga in her late twenties. Working as a tv journalist, she dealt with stressful deadlines on a daily basis. Yoga for her initially was a way to find peace and calm inside. As the years went by, her visits to yoga studios increased. In 2005 she started her family and slowly intensified her practice. She noticed the effect of yoga on her wellbeing. Not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally.
After her second son was born in 2008, Marjon finally decided to give herself a ‘treat’: she took a year off and started the Teacher Training at Yoga Moves. In hindsight this was the best gift she could have ever given herself! Ever since she can’t imagine a life without yoga. She still works in tv. However, yoga makes her follow her heart and ‘gut feeling’ more, making her life lighter and less strenuous.
Marjon has broadened her horizon with Yin Yoga, after studies with José de Groot, Sarah Powers and Anoshe Overington. She currently teaches yin (flow) yoga and vinyasa flow.
Being a late starter, she can relate to beginners and will make everyone feel at ease. Her warmth and humor will make sure you feel safe and secure. With a lot of attention she will guide and challenge you according to your capacity. You can attend her classes on Sunday and Wednesday. Be there to expect a well thought out mixture of yin postures, meditation and breath. Marjon is looking forward to see you there! www.yogafactor.nl
