Teachers during the Retreat
Yin Yoga & Fascia Therapy with Joyce
In the past years I guided many people to deep relaxation with yin yoga and fascia therapy. Individuals, yoga teachers, breathwork coaches and several other body workers. Since a year I live in the South of France and I am happy to invite people to meet their inner nature in nature!
As a Yin Yoga Teacher in the basis, I love to guide people to their yin energy. The energy where they find themselves in Stillness. The combination of Yin Yoga and Fascia Therapy with Massage balls is magic. People can go deeper in themselves in postures. Chronic pain and emotional Blockages will be released and Stillness will guide them to themselves. In the session the nervus vagus and the psoas will be stimulated.
Learning to people about Chinese Medicine, the meridians and fascia structure is one of my deepest passions. It is bringing Science together with Chinese Medicine. During my workshop, we will explore the structure of your body, how you can relax your fascia, muscles and joints with yin poses in combination with fascia balls, and we will see how you arrive at the retreat. This will be important to see what your focus is for the Rolfing Fascia Therapy session with John.
Rolfing Fascia Therapy session with John
Your Rolfing Fascia Therapy session will be tuned to your inner nature retreat themes and intentions. As one of the three teachers you have at your disposal for this week/retreat, I will focus on the physical possibilities of your body in the context of the retreat, serving also as a doorway to perception, coordination and meaning. You can bring any issue to the table. A few examples as inspiration to formulate your desires could be:
- Breathwork intensive, freeing the breath, freeing the fascial restrictions in diaphragm, thorax, shoulder girdle, hip girdle and all that’s related and relevant for your breathing.
- Deep dive into the psoas, freeing the psoas and the related structures at the core / centre of your body. Is your core, your centre from which you engage the world, your theme, then this deep dive might be for you.
- Nervus vagus extensive, a session devoted to stimulation of the vagus nerve to improve emotional regulation and relaxation.
Wim Hof Breathwork Sessions and Ice Baths with Jeroen
Jeroen Rodenburg gives the Wim Hof Breathwork Sessions and guides the Ice Baths during the retreat. Jeroen is a certified WHM Method Instructor and has personally experienced how his immune system and body changed positively through cold training. Do you want to be there and experience what cold training does for your immune system and mental health? Then read on…
Jeroen himself has Lyme disease. And has therefore experienced many vague complaints such as problems with his back and knees, migraine attacks, insomnia and chronic fatigue. These seemed to be mainly due to the busy period in the life of Jeroen and his family. The birth of their three children (born a short time apart) and the irregular working hours at the police were also seen as the cause of some of his complaints.
The search started back in 2004 when he was bitten by a tick during a training week for the riot police on the Veluwe in The Netherland. Jeroen then started to study the Wim Hof Method. During the Poland Retreat on December 5, 2016, a switch came on top of the 1609-meter-high mountain Śnieżka in Poland.
Since then, he has continued to specialize, and he gives workshops to anyone who wants to learn more about this. He is very passionate about this method and is able to guide anyone in the ice bath. But even more important, during the breathing sessions.
