a course in sitting still

What reveals itself when you sit still? When you stop your internal dialogues? When you look inward? Observe the physical sensations in the sitting? The thoughts and emotions that arise in the silence? The expectations, opinions, ideas and convictions? And what is the breath and breathing like in that silence? Do you experience the silence, the space? What happens when you create a moment for this each day? 

Alongside in-depth (self)exploration, this introductory course will offer participants proper sitting postures and helpful techniques from yoga and meditation. The meetings also will serve to share experiences and insights and to answer questions. This is a collaboration with yoga school Yoia as part of the exhibition ‘stil‘ at De Ketelfactory. Surrounded by hundreds of images of silence, we have an encounter with sitting still. 

The course consists of 4 lessons of 1.5 hours and will be taught on the following Monday evenings: 25th March, 1st April, 8th April and 15th April from 7.30pm to 9pm. The course is taught by Romanie Noordegraaf, yoga and meditation teacher, founder of Yogastudio Yoia and director of Samsara Yoga Teacher Training.

Signing up is obligatory. Please send an email to info@deketelfactory.nl. Costs are € 45 for 4 lessons. Lessons can not be booked individually. We will take between 6 and 16 participants.
