|DYNAMIC INTERACTION BETWEEN BODY AND MIND
with Maartje van Hooft
still places available
Fri March 17 (20:30) - Sun March 19 (16:00)
There is a common perception that it is our mind or our will that is guidig or steering the body. But this perception or idea is not so realistic. Our psyche – what we feel and what we think – is just as much influenced and coloured by our state of being, our physical and physiological state.
In this workshop you can experience how you can ‘massage’ the mind through the body, through creating shifting physiological states and colouring. Your attentionfield and your emotive state move along with these shifts , and that creates an open space in which you can let go of fixed routes of attention and mental fixation.
Throughout the weekend, in between sets of exercises, we will return to sessions of meditation, sitting in silence and observation.

Stretch with deep inner sense, discover more in holding poses, experience ‘Hara-power and Softness’ and move in integration. Tomoko has been developing a unique method to let limits move away little by little and achieve a deep physical relaxation and natural inner peace.

Sent by the master to the United Kingdom in 1984, she has ever since been teaching Okido Yoga under a UK’s charitable organisation (okidoyoga.org.uk). She is also a certified teacher of the British Wheel of Yoga, the largest yoga membership organisation in the UK. She has raised four children.
KYOKA-HO: DYNAMIC YOGA-TRAINING
with Ronald Boin
Fri May 19 (20:30) - Sun May 21 (16:00)
Kyoka-ho is one of the fields of okido yoga, literally translated strengthening exercises, both of harmonizing way and challenging way. Kyoka-ho lets you realize (diagnose) your weak points but also awakens your potential strength. There are all sorts of exercises beyond imagination, individual, with a partner or in a big group. For yoga teachers, it gives an extra taste; for children yoga, it is also a fun; for school gymnastic teachers, it gives idea that strength does not come only from physical strength. . .

Yoga and non-salt half fasting
with Koji Kunikiyo, Mizue Tamaki,
Hatsuko Kanazawa, Anna Mackenzie, e.a.
The whole week is meant to cleanse what has accumulated in the body since birth or sometimes before birth. People are busy what to take when they do not feel good, but not busy to what to get rid of. A natural function of the body is to get rid of what is not necessary, but this function cannot whitstand all the toxins that are taken in, produced in the digestive and other bodily processes.
Fasting is the traditional way to help the body to get rid of accumulated toxins. However, most fasting regimes are too extreme for body and mind.
The non-salt half fasting system is mild, but not less effective. And proven effective for slowing down the aging process, headache, lower back pain, constipation, etc., problems for which cannot be found anatomical cause.
By stopping salt from outside, accumulated salt comes out, and melt into the blood, as our body needs salt. This salt is preserved unbroken, accompanied with toxins. So when salt is melted into the blood out of the tissues also the accumulated toxins get eliminated from the tissues. At that moment you will get different symptoms or you do not feel good. We eat or drink what neutralises the toxins coming out, this helps the elimination process. It is going faster and is less suffering… This way non-salt during fasting is much more effective, also this system does not cause rebounding after fasting (eating too much).
Exercising also accelerates the cleansing process. A daily programme is alternating exercises and theory study. This theory study is not study of physiology on the paper but through your own living body: you learn to listen to your lifeforce, that is yoga.
