Yoga with Andrea

Learning about love and joy and present moment awareness, this is what I wish to share in my Yoga classes.  

I started practicing Yoga 16 years ago, initially with the idea to heal my back which had been an issue for me since my teenage years. But through the years my view of life and Yoga have changed and developed and my interest in Yoga has expanded to a broader and wider idea of Yoga as a way to realize who I am, to live a more conscious life and to experience the unity of all.

I have met and practiced with different teachers of many styles, Vinyasa, Sivananda, Yin Yoga, Iyengar and more.  My classes are a mix of Meditation, Hatha Yoga (as a combination of styles) and Pranayama, that have resonated with me over the years.

I never went deeply into the study of Yoga philosophy. My spiritual journey was more accompanied by teachings that helped me look at life in a very simple way. Eckhart Tolle and Adyashanti resonated with me for some time and nowadays I love Bentinho Massaro's teachings and approach to life. 

But my biggest passion are the dolphins! They appeared in my life for the first time in 1999 and ever since then I was "hooked". In the past 5 years my connection to them has intensified and I feel very inspired and guided by them. If you want to read a bit about my journey with the dolphins, please have a look at my blog: www.andreabode.com

You will find a little visual taste of my time with them in Hawaii on my youtube channel "DolphinSeed". Enjoy!

Yoga for Women

Yoga for Women

We practice Yoga asanas in a very gentle way (similar to Yin Yoga) with awareness of the subtle energies and sensations in the body. Our focus is especially in our hip region and our sexual organs.

In our society and our collective consciousness there is still an imbalance as the male energy dominates with the focus on striving and success. During the practice of Yoga for Women we intend to be fully present in the moment giving space for the subtleness of the Yin energy to arise.

As our bodies age and tissues loosen the weight of our organs pull downwards and the pressure on our pelvic floor muscles increases. In Yoga for Woman we learn to get in contact with these muscles and the muscles of our vaginal wall. We learn to strengthen them and at the same time to deeply release tension.

For those who wish to take this practice deeper I offer Yoni Eggs.

The concept of Yoni Eggs goes back to over 5,000 years ago. The Yoni Egg, also known as the Jade Egg, was used by empresses and princesses in China. The practice of using a Yoni Egg is known in Asia as Vaginal Kung Fu. This holistic practice was mainly used to strengthen the vaginal muscles and improve the Chi for longevity and vitality, to awaken divine energy and sensuality, and to produce overall good health.

Crystals themselves have healing effects on our energy system and placed inside our Yoni (Sanskrit word for vagina, the “sacred space”) they help release emotional and physical tension. With the egg we can more easily get in contact with the muscles of the vaginal walls and learn to strengthen and activate them. Emotions of shame and guilt that are especially located in our genitals can subside as we get in contact with our sexual energy - which is life force itself!

More benefits in short are: increasing of spiritual awareness, emotional balancing, helping remove trauma stored in the womb, detoxifying the uterus/womb, massaging the reflexology points in the vaginal wall, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, increasing vaginal lubrication, enhancing sexual pleasure, preventing sagging of the uterus, rectum and bladder, regulating hormonal balance, helping with fertility, reducing cramping and abdominal pain during menstruation, helping  to maintain our reproductive organs healthy.

If you feel drawn to practice Yoga for women with a Yoni egg, please come a day or at least half an hour before the class so I can give you further guidance how to use it.

Thank you for joining, thank you for taking care of your aliveness!
