Health is really about balance, at all levels: physical, physiological and mental.
Losing our balance can trip us up, literally or figuratively. Our physiological systems tick out of sync and our minds can go into overdrive. If we’re in balance, we feel healthy, harmonious and ready to face the world.
We invite you to find your own balance, with a beneficial mix of yoga and excursions into nature, with lots of time to relax in a beautiful old farmhouse with a big, wild, permaculture garden, in the bucolic region of Durbuy, just south of Liège.
We will explore the concept of balance in health and nature, and the links between a healthy planet and our own health, in practice and – a tiny bit – of theory and philosphy.
Who are we?
Nina Klein is a yoga teacher and certified yoga therapist, who will share a “hit-list” of exercises for balance, so you will gain a practical routine you can easily integrate into your daily life. This draws not only on yoga, but also on auto-massage and healing touch (jin shin jyutsu). Nina’s focus is on adapting yoga to each individual. She will introduce you to yoga philosophy and the latest scientific findings which corroborate the relevance of balance for planetary and personal health. Nina is certified in Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services studies (Bournemouth University, UK) and in Sustainability and Behaviour Change (Center for Alternative Technology CAT, Wales, UK) . She takes her inspiration from the Global Ecovillage Network and is actively engaged in the Transition Network.
