More and more people discover the benefits of Pilates.
The beauty of Pilates is that everyone can start at any age. With the controlled movements you can completely redesign your body. It is an extensive system of specific exercises performed on a mat. Pilates lets you stand still and think about what you do. By focusing your mind, regulating your breathing and making use of internal resistance, it is an extremely powerful way to shape the body again.
Many Pilates movements require you to hold your torso in place while your limbs move in different directions. This challenges your body with balance, stability and flexibility. This will strengthen your core and streamline your body. During the aging process, our bodies tend to become stiff and inflexible. Eventually this creates a badly aligned body, which causes a stiff neck, headache and back pain. Pilates works on your joints and mobilizes your spine to prevent problems such as tight hamstrings, curved knees, rounded shoulders and forward pointing neck.
The exercises are largely on the ground, so even if you have problems with mobility or during pregnancy, you can participate.
Why yoga? Anyone can learn it. Especially in this week, where you can repeat the series every day.
Yoga is a great way to work on your flexibility and strength. Almost anyone can do it - it's not just for people who can touch their toes or want to meditate.
Some types of yoga are about relaxation. In others you move more. Most types of Yoga focus on learning poses, called Asanas. They usually include attention to breathing.
Some yoga styles, such as Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga, are very physical. Practicing one of these styles will help you improve muscle tone.
But even less powerful yoga styles, such as Iyengar or Hatha, can offer benefits in terms of strength and stamina.
Many of the postures, such as a downward dog, an upward dog and the plank posture, build up the strength of the upper body. The standing postures, especially if you hold them a few long breaths, build strength in your hamstrings, quadriceps and abdominal muscles. They improve your sense of balance. Postures that strengthen the lower back include the upward dog and the chair posture.
If you do it right, almost all exercises give core strength to the deep abdominal muscles.
When you are stronger and more flexible, your posture improves.
Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic massage from Japan. It uses kneading, pressing, calming, knocking and stretching and is performed without oils. It happens on the ground mat with clothes on, preferably light, comfortable cotton clothing. It is a gentle pressure on meridians that can lift blockages. Loosening muscles helps you relax better. It reduces stress and has a therapeutic effect on the organs. You can do it on your own and together with others, it is a wonderful meditative activity.
This medical treatment uses Yin and Yang. Giving Shiatsu massage is as good and healthy as receiving Shiatsu. The massage and stretches are an invitation to help the body to lift blockages and create space for energy. To flow again in a balanced and healthy way. This both on a physical, mental and emotional level. It has both a preventive and a restorative effect.
Shiatsu can be used to treat a wide range of physical and emotional disorders. It reduces muscle stiffness, stimulates the skin and promotes digestion. Shiatsu is used to treat a wide range of chronic conditions such as headache, PMS, digestive disorders, fatigue, insomnia, fibromyalgia, stress, anxiety and musculoskeletal pain, including low back, neck and joint pain.
The effect can be stimulating, invigorating or calming, depending on the purpose of the session.

It turned out that everyone became a fan of classical ballet. We had the biggest fun with musical/jazz dance and Greek dance was a nice preparation for the BBQ evening. Then everyone stands on the floor in their most beautiful outfit. So bring your evening wear, here with the Greeks you are never overdressed.
Yin yogamakes you flexible. It focuses on making tendons, connective tissue and joints more supple. By relaxing the muscles (Yang Tissue) there is slight pressure on the harder stiffer tissues in the body (Yin tissues). Moreover, these exercises give you peace and help you to reduce stress hormones. People with burn-out symptoms or depression certainly benefit from this. During pregnancy, these exercises are a good preparation for what is to come. I can also recommend these lessons to athletes with short or stiff muscles. If you come for inner peace, flexibility or if you want to lose weight without great effort, Yin Yoga is the best choice.
How does it work? You keep posing relaxed for a long time in a stretch position, sitting or lying on the mat. Cushions support you. Because we work with small groups, the teacher can adapt any attitude to the limitations of the individual participant.
Stop searching for excuses not to move, aqua-dance is hot! It is an easy, accessible and healthy workout that is beneficial for your entire body and mind. What makes aqua dancing so fun? Met aqua-dance/gym kan je makkelijk je spieren verstevigen, je hartritme stimuleren en je ademhalingsspanning verbeteren. In addition, the risk of injury is extremely small. The resistance exerted by the water prevents muscle stretching, sprains and muscle pain. Shocks are cushioned and there is no impact from the ground. The movements are soft and supple. The result is that your joints are gently trained and become more supple without heavy loads.
It is often said that half an hour of aqua-dancing is equivalent to about an hour and a half of a similar sport on dry land. Although aqua-gym may seem easier because the water makes your body lighter, the opposite is true. The exercises are often more effective because of the resistance of the water.
