Monday

10:00 – 11:00 Wake up to Dynamic Flow
The class starts with tuning in and listening to the body, coming into our own stillness. After a series of warm up stretches the class builds up to a dynamic flow practice based on Ashtanga yoga, synchronising movement with breath as we build heat in the body, working on strength and flexibility.  As with all yoga the guiding principle is the breath. The pace of the class slows down with the seated postures, meditation, and then lying down relaxation. At the end of the class the mind, the body, and the breath are in harmony and balance.

Tuesday

11:00 – 11:30 FREE taster class. If the world of yoga is new to you, come and join this free class to get a feel for it!

20:00 – 21:00 Vinyasa flow class (this class is without any sun salutations or heavy work with arms / wrists). This is also a good option for beginners.

Wednesday

09:30 – 10:30 Vinyasa Flow
The class starts with tuning in and soft listening to the body through a seated body scan. Moving from a series of warm up stretches the class becomes more dynamic, it is less physically demanding than the dynamic class but the two classes follow similar postures and sequences. The seated movement leads us to the guided meditation. The final posture is the lying down relaxation. The yoga practice is working through the body to still the fluctuations of the mind, getting to know our mind and body through yoga.

Over Satty Yoga

Hello, my name is Satty VerbArt. I live and work in Vathorst, Amersfoort.  My husband and I have been living here since August 2017, and we love living next to the canals and experiencing the big open sky.  My purpose is to share my passion for yoga, mindfulness and meditation with you.  There are enormous benefits when you incorporate yoga, meditation and mindfulness into your life. You can read about these in journal articles and studies, but the best way is to simply try it for yourself.

I started practicing yoga over 15 years ago, I wanted to become a more grounded person, not so impacted by work or family stress. I knew yoga had physical benefits and I was curious about the mental benefits.

Once I got immersed in the world of yoga I focused on my body and the postures, trying to accomplish the best I could with each move I did. I judged myself, I was looking to achieve something. It took a while for me to realise that I was not being very mindful. I was holding tension, lacking compassion, wanting to get somewhere through a physical practice.

I started my yoga experience with the Ashtanga primary series. I also explored Hatha yoga and Bikram yoga, and in the last 6 years started to cultivate my own meditation practice, this allowed me to uncover the inner body and the co-dependent relationship with the mind. My yoga evolved and so did I. I learned that the real benefits went beyond being able to do the perfect downward dog or warrior poses, that yoga is in fact more about the internal than the external.

My practice has become one of integrated yoga and mindfulness. Yoga is the union of the mind and the body through the breath. A non judging, non striving approach to yoga; a felt experience that goes beyond the work on the mat. We experience the natural energetics of the body and at the same time still the fluctuations of the mind.

The classes I give vary from dynamic ashtanga based sequences to slow flow movement. All classes embody mindfulness, meditation and movement, a process of cultivating balance and harmony so we feel more centred, grounded and at ease.

I studied the foundations of yoga and philosophy with the British Wheel of Yoga. This was a sound basis for personal development and the start of the journey towards becoming a yoga teacher.  I did the 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Course which helped develop my mindfulness and meditation practice. This was a pre-requisite to study Integrated Yoga and Mindfulnesss with Hugh Poulton, a 200 hour yoga alliance teaching qualification. (Hugh Poulton is one of the UK’s most experienced mindfulness teachers, his work is referenced in Mark William’s bestselling book “Mindfulness: a practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world”).

Whilst the term mindfulness has become very widely used, and in many respects over simplified, it remains the corner stone for cultivating greater awareness of the unity of the mind and body and our relationship to tension. Through yoga and mindfulness we learn to recognise how our mental states are expressed in the body and how this impacts our moment to moment experience.

With me you will develop a yoga practice that meets you where you are now, allowing you space and time to grow and deepen your awareness of you, your mind, your body through your practice. Slowly through continued practice, yoga will bring an inner peace. You will discover a calmer mind, a more open heart and you will experience the inner energetics of your body on and off the mat.

Keep Smiling! 🙂
