A selection of workshops related to The Body, that you can participate in at Nibana:
Offered by Chris & others
Chris has a unique way of offering various Osho meditations. These meditations are perfect for you if you cannot simply sit still and shut down your mind. And yes, that's most of us. Get ready to move and jump, maybe even scream. This is the kind of thing that may look weird from the outside, but can be a total eye-opener once you've experienced it. Give it a go, and judge for yourself.
Massage with music
Offered by Rianne & Mirte
Traditional oil based massage combined with music. We'll pair up with a partner that we feel comfortable with. Rianne and Mirte will guide us through a massage exchange. Either traditional oil based massage or Thai massage; a slightly more acrobatic massage form with all our clothes on.
Yin yoga journey
Offered by Dieke
Yin yoga is a beautiful slow form of yoga where each pose is held for three to five minutes. Some poses feel relaxing, while others may bring discomfort. In either case we learn to rest with whatever feelings arise. Dieke combines yin yoga with the 5 elements of traditional Chinese medicine.
Offered by Aranka
Aranka takes us on a little journey where we move our energy and bring life into the body.
Whole World Upside Down
Offered by Jethro
A holistic handstand workshop. We'll learn just what it takes to stand firmly balanced on your hands. A handstand is so much more than just a cool move. Besides being a full body exercise (it's not just about the arms), it is also a beautiful tool for cultivating more self-awareness and strengthening the body-mind connection. In this workshop we will use many different techniques derived from yoga, breakdancing, acrobatics and circus to work towards really understanding a handstand. At the same time we work on the strength and condition needed to stay upside down for some time.
Offered by Aranka
Games that invite curiosity, open the senses and connect you to your joy.
Offered by Ori
Tantra yoga is is very different to the yoga we usually practice in the west. We learn to move our energy in the channels that exist in our body. Not sure what that means? Only one way to find out!
Offered by Mirte
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork based on ideas in traditional Chinese medicine. In the Japanese language, shiatsu means "finger pressure". Shiatsu techniques include massages with fingers, thumbs, feet and palms; assisted stretching; and joint manipulation and mobilization. We'll pair up with a partner that we feel comfortable with and Mirte will guide us through a massage exchange.
