This one hour, lunchtime Iyengar Yoga class is a great way to undo the damage of sitting at a desk!
Sitting and repetitive tasks take a toll on our bodies, leading to back, neck and shoulder pain, knee and hip problems… Learn how to undo accumulated tension in your body and protect yourself against further damage! By taking some time out from your work, you will refresh and calm your mind and be much more effective in the afternoon.
You are welcome to drop-in to the class when it suits you but it is cheaper per class to book for the term (and you are more likely to come regularly if you book in advance). Yoga works best when done regularly.

Are you tired of living in a culture where “dumbing down is so prevalent?
Do you like wrestling with the BIG questions?
Come, join us in an exploration of the existential layer of our life process.
In this series of workshops we will take the time to make art, reflect on and share about that which makes us human. One by one you are invited to visit those challenging aspects of the human condition which are unavoidable and which pose ultimately unsolvable questions. Our creativity is put to the best of uses when called upon to remake our answers to these existential questions.
Each week we will explore where we are currently standing in relation to one of six universal themes:
2. autonomy and relatedness
3. freedom and responsibility
4. death and other limitations
5. meaning and meaninglessness
6. the Un-known
You may attend these workshops as a complete series or individually.

- “Intuitive painting is the practice of meditating with a brush in your hand! A powerful spiritual and creative practice designed to connect people with their intuition and inner guidance. “
The class combines intuitive painting, meditation and free writing. It provides a safe and positive space for free expression, with the aim to develop an intuitive approach to the creative process. The main focus of the activity is the process rather than the final outcome. Art is used as a tool for pure self expression, healing and transformation. A short guided meditation opens and closes the practice and helps to relax the mind and the body.
