Hybrid yoga classes in Brussels & online

Are you interested to join a live yoga class? As from mid-November 2021 I’ll organise hybrid sessions in Elsene/ Ixelles (nearby Porte de Namur/ Naamsepoort).

Hybrid session: means I’ll teach in a room with some students present physically in the room & simultaneously streaming the session to those who prefer to attend at home (or elsewhere).

Prerequisites to join the class live in the room : a yoga mat & a Covid Safe Pass/ Ticket.

The number of students that can join physically will be limited so registrations need to be done timely (first come, first join).

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.

If you want to sign up, fill out this short survey.

Join a wonderful Yoga retreat in Spain, 15-22 October 2021

My dear friend & fellow yoga teacher Isabel organises another wonderful yoga retreat in Spain in October.

MOUNTAINS, SUN, BEACH, YOGA & MEDITATION

Isabel

On this retreat, we will spend most of our time outdoors. The accommodations are in a beautiful, rural, and quiet house. There will be hiking trips to look forward to.

​During this week, you will have time to dive deeper into some important aspects of yoga philosophy, as well as the practice of Chakras discovering more about how to balance the main energetic system: one chakra per day. There also will be the practice of complete silence at certain moments.

​​During the day, there will be excursions where you can connect with the power of nature. You will have also some free time for yourself to read, have a massage, walk around, enjoy the pool or have a siesta.

The evening practice there will be two days holistic movement workshops and two days chanting workshops. Using your body and/or voice to release tensions and free the body and mind. This techniques will also help your body to be more flexible and at ease during the yoga asana practice. The day ends with yoga nidra (a 30′ practice of deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation). 

After this retreat, you will feel lighter, renewed, recharged, and your eyes will shine brighter!

I will be there & I warmly recommend you join too.

New booking tool for yoga classes Sampoorna Yoga Studio

The studio where I’ve been teaching for many years, Sampoorna Yoga Studio, in Brussels, has recently moved to a new booking tool. It’s very user-friendly & also budget friendly for the studio, which is particularly important in these difficult times where the studio’s doors are still closed & classes only take place online.

I warmly recommend taking a class with one of my fellow teachers or myself. Book your next online class here.

You can register via the schedule on our website, or via the Eversports App on your smartphone. In the schedule, look up the class you want to join, click on Join Now, and proceed. If you have a valid pass the class will automatically be deducted from your pass. If you need to purchase a new subscription, you can choose from the various options available. Feel free to leave a review as well.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon in an online class.

Instant Pot discovery and recipes Ⓥ

I gave myself the gift of the Instant Pot. Initially I wanted to get a rice/ quinoa cooker but was advised to get an Instant Pot as it’s not much more expensive and very versatile and useful.

My first experiences have been very positive. Obviously I’ve made rice (1 cup of rice, 1 cup of water & some salt if wished), done in 3 minutes on high pressure manual mode (with 10 extra minutes to release the steam naturally) ! Incredible.

Furthermore, I’ve made this spicy eggplant dish (one of my all time favourite veggies), I ate it with pasta. It turned out super soft and perfect to season, stir fry or roast with very little to no oil after.

Then I prepared kale. All done in 3 minutes on high manual pressure mode (need time to release naturally or quick release).

Last week I’ve been making soup using the soup program on the cooker. It’s super simple. Just use the sauté mode to fry onion, garlic, garlic (if used) and then cancel, add the vegetable stock (most of the times I use 5 cups boiled water with stock powder), add the cut & washed vegetables of choice (ideally stick to 1 color: all green or all orange/ red to avoid a disgustingly colored soup), mix & close the pot. Choose the soup mode & come back 30 minutes later, let the steam release naturally or with quick release, mix with your immersion blender and voilà. My discoveries: broccoli, fennel & potato soup; leek, rocket salad & potato soup; endives & potato soup. All my soups include 1 or 2 onions, 1 or 2 cloves of garlic and 2 medium sized potatoes. I often add a dash of tamari & salt & black pepper when serving the soup. It’s nice to add nutritional yeast when you drink your soup.

Next up: making a stew. So I looked up lots of Instant Pot recipes, there is so much out there, it’s amazing. I make this lentil stew with kale & sweet potato, again delicious & so simpel! It was utterly delicious.

Some great sources of inspiration: Vegan Richa, Edgy Veg, there’s a Facebook group, Stingy Vegan.
