April in Serendip Spa & Yoga

At Serendip, one thing we love about Spring is the awakening of the senses and the lighter energy. True, Spring this year is taking its time, but we can already feel it coming: Spring flowers blooming, light shining - a feast of the senses! We have taken cues from Nature this month to awaken all of our senses, and revel in the joy of Spring!

This month we will create our own luxurious bouquets, treat ourselves with Aromatherapy, take time to smell the proverbial roses. How can you also get inspired by Nature? Maybe by looking around you, opening your eyes, opening your ears, tasting that delicious Easter chocolate, smelling the perfume of Spring flowers, feeling the soft touch of a ray of sun on your skin - take a deep breath and enjoy!

Introduction to Trauma-Informed Classes Workshop

Introduction to trauma-informed classes – A workshop for yoga teachers and teachers in training

 

About 50% of people who try a yoga class for the first time don’t come back – why is that?

Many reasons could be an explanation, but it is also time to acknowledge that most yoga spaces are not welcoming to people who suffer from and live with trauma.

While not everyone in a standard class is traumatized, it is our job as teachers to take into account the possibility that some of our students actually are.

 

This workshop is designed for teachers and teachers in training who wish to become more aware of the dynamics of trauma and who wish to make their classes more inclusive for everyone, or students considering taking a teacher training. We will review the mechanisms of trauma and tools to develop agency and empowerment in a yoga class.

 

This workshop is NOT designed to allow teachers to work with specific traumatized populations, or to process and heal from trauma. Some elements of the discussions might be triggering.

 

Open to yoga teachers and yoga teachers in training. Eligible for Yoga Alliance Continued Education Credit.

While there will be a bit of asana practice, this workshop will consist mostly of discussions and lectures.

 

Your teacher: Emma is Serendip Spa & Yoga’s Head Teacher and Lead Teacher Trainer. She is a certified Vinyasa Yoga teacher, registered with Yoga Alliance as E-RYT 200 and YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continued Education Provider), a certified Trauma-Center, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Facilitator (TCTSY-F), and certified Teen Yoga teacher. She has worked with people suffering from complex PTSD and cancer survivors, and will soon start projects with women victims of abuse, and disadvanted youth.

 

Schedule:

·      10h-13h: trauma mechanisms and trauma theory

·      14h-17h: elements of a trauma-informed class: invitation / choice / non-coercion / environment / teachers qualities

 

Location : Serendip Spa & Yoga’s Atelier

Price : EUR 100 – Early bird of EUR 90 if booked and paid by April 10.

Hormone Yoga Workshop with Lucia

Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) is a dynamic form of yoga created by Dinah Rodrigues, which naturally helps to reactivate hormone levels and to effectively prevent or eliminate the symptoms of menopause. It will also benefit those women suffering from hormonal disorders (PMS, irregular periods, polycystic ovary, thyroid imbalance) and those who have difficulties getting pregnant due to low hormone levels. 

Through dynamic yoga poses, energetic breathing exercises, visualization and some Tibetan energy circulation techniques, HYT stimulates the glands associated with hormone production, i.e. the ovaries, the thyroid and parathyroid, the hypophysis and the adrenals. During the workshop we will slowly go through the sequences and explain the different exercises step by step. We will also look at some anti-stress and relaxation techniques. At the end you will get a copy of the sequence so that you can continue to practice it at home. 

Contraindications: HYT is contra-indicated in pregnancy and with certain conditions such as active endometriosis, large fibroids, hormone dependent breast/uterine cancer or history of undiagnosed abdominal pain. 

Join us on Sunday 8 April from 2:30 to 6:30pm

 Price 60eur per person

March in Serendip Spa & Yoga

What an exciting time: Spring is coming! Sure, the air might still feel a bit crisp, and we are still shaking off that last bit of hibernation, but new light and new energy are coming, Spring flowers are blooming, holidays are being planned… Maybe it is also time to take care of yourself, to give your body and mind the breather they need, maybe by forming new healthy habits, or taking a much needed break. Take time for yourself, take time to small the Spring flowers!

February at Serendip Spa & Yoga

Ah February, the shortest month of the year, but also this time when we begin to notice days getting longer, when it is still Winter but with a little hint of light coming our way, when we are ready for LOVE!

Love in all its meanings: love for our significant other, for our friends, our parents, our children, our pets - but it all starts with ourselves. And while we tend to mark the dates of 14th February to celebrate love, maybe we can find a way to honour love in our love every day, at every moment - which is why at Serendip we are ready to celebrate with you every day!

Just have a look at our calendar - after all, this is what we stand for. Let's celebrate love together!
