Meditation is the foundation of mental health and the key to expand into your fullest potential. It can show you the path to who you are truly meant to be, if you are willing to do the inner work and let go of old limiting beliefs. It can bring out your fearless and loving self so you can live the life you envision for yourself. If you intend to reduce your stress levels, an attention training practice can gently purify the nervous system from the built up stress of daily life, allowing you to live with more awareness and clarity of mind and make wiser and more nourishing choices.
Next to its stress releasing properties, meditation is also known for its curative powers, meaning that the nervous system can sustain its acquired balance regardless of external circumstances. This balance, also called homeostasis in scientific terms, can help peace be your normal way of being.
Yoga improves flexibility and increases both muscle strength and tone. What makes it so effective is the holistic approach to the body, mind and soul as it elevates your energy and vitality overall. It is also beneficial for respiratory and cardiovascular health. Yoga both helps prevent and recover from injury. With all the physical benefits one must not forget the enormous effect it can have on your mental health. Giving yourself time to feel and listen within and letting your thoughts and worries go, at least for the time that you're on your yoga mat, or towel in our case. We take your yoga practice to the next level by adding the fresh salty air, sand under your feet and sound of the wind flowing through the leaves of our palm trees. This is true serenity and will help everyone get into the truly relaxing holiday vibe.
“ Teaching is about passing on Light, Wisdom and Love, like a flame lighting another. ” Shanti is a well known and revered teacher of yoga and meditation on the island of Aruba. She has been teaching full time for 20 years wholeheartedly and is dedicated to promoting healing and harmony in the community. She believes the world is a mirror of our inner state. " As we enlighten ourselves the whole world becomes a brighter place " ~ Shanti. I consider myself an old fashioned Enlightenment seeker. Since childhood I remember playing ” awareness games ” and feeling strongly pulled to the natural world. I spent most of my playtime outside and I would question modern world affairs. In my younger adult years, intense suffering led me to spend a considerable amount of time self searching. I started exploring yoga and I was impressed with its healing and transformational powers. This led me to complete my first Hatha Yoga teacher training in 2002 and I have been teaching ever since. Now 20 years later I have taught over 4000 classes and I am still loving it and growing with it. Teaching a class is about passing on Light, Wisdom and Love, like a flame lighting another, effortlessly and humbly. I keep my flame burning with my daily meditation, plenty of time in nature, connecting with my friends and family and through building community. I believe cultivating self mastery and liberation from worldly fixations are essential to lead fulfilled lives. Let’s support and uplift each other on this grand adventure called life. “Your health & inner peace are sacred and a gift to the world ” ~ Shanti
