Water your roots, so your soul can blossom (Wild woman sisterhood)

Did not know I made my last blog this long ago.
So where to start?

Well let’s see I did some extra Hulahoop workshops like the Rock’n roll festival on my island Terschelling which was so much fun I will go again next year. After this teaching I had my holiday with Mathy in Mallorca. Bring us back please! Sunshine, sea, sand, food what do we want more? I love it and already missing summer, but if there will be some snow or ice this year I will enjoy winter too!
Oh and didn’t mentioned I have my Hoop coach certificate since this summer. So also I keep on learning because I am busy with a new teacher training for my Yoga. OH yes also I am fighting against one of my biggest fears like driving. On my pace I am taking a lessen in two weeks so not in a speed pace at all but this works for me. I even like it now! Pfiew its so long since i write my last blog that I will forget a lot of important stuff to tell. Dex is fine he is getting older and still itch sometimes but now the winter is here he is better then he was in summer.
But I am so busy with teaching, making new plans and yesterday I start my own Hoopdance indoor lessons.
So looking really forward to do this and also I am promoting Hoopdance and sell Hoops on Winterwonderland markt in Hilversum. But there will me much more so again I keep you posted and hopefully little bit earlier this time.

Of course at the end of the year we are visiting the family and friends and going to my roots Island again.
It is two months from here but already I wish you some really nice day’s with Christmas and wishing you a happy healthy New Year!

Everything changes and nothing stands still. (Plato quote)

Everything changes and nothing stands still that’s how everything moves forward into the future!
And that’s why sometimes you have to choose between things or opportunities which you both like!
Today I gave my last Power Yoga class at Van Hellemond Zuid because I got the chance to teach a weekly Vinyasa Yoga at Ananda Yogacentrum starting next week! So yes I am totally happy about this and looking forward to this so much, but also I had to say goodbye to my lovely group at Van Hellemond Sport.
They came in every Saturday morning before eight o√ßlock and I see so much progress in them, so was little difficult to say that I am going 3 weeks ago. But Nobody said making steps forward and dealing with choices is easy! But it’s required to grow.

Another beginning for me is my hospitality job! I am working in a restaurant with lovely people so it’s not that I don’t like the job but it’s getting to busy with my teaching and work at home. So before my body starts to complain I am losing another day, from next week I only work part time in the restaurant.Two day’s left now and I like the variation between those two jobs. I am going to work there for 2 day’s and the rest I teach Yoga and Hoopdance or will be working at home.
I always have to many ideas in my head so I need this extra time for making things done. And there will be more nice plans but can’t tell you before it’s settled.
I will keep you posted again ūüėČ


Lucky Oerol Vibes!

One week after my lovely holiday on my Island Terschelling. I landed again in Hilversum now, I always need a few day’s to feel home here when we are back from the Island.It’s a big difference between Terschelling and Hilversum so I need to adjust a little. Holiday’s are always something difference of course but when I am on my Island I feel my roots and the calmness. You only hear the sea or birds or the wind and that’s it. Even when there is ten day’s of Oerol festival it’s still peaceful. It’s a save place where you can even drink out of glass on the festival and forget your phone without something bad happens.
It’s totally normal and all my friends that come from Terschelling has the same feeling the first day’s after.
We had so much luck with ten day’s sun and almost none wind which is very special for the island.
Lot of BBQ day’s with the family and lot of festival fun during the afternoon and evening. Cycling through nature and take a swim into the sea or Hoop, Dance or doing Yoga on the beach was also part of my holiday. So yes I enjoyed it so much I now every day look at some pictures from then and then go back to work again. It’s almost impossible but hopefully next year new Oerol same weather. And the K9? Yes he had his little holiday too! Spend his time with Dogfriends and when we picked him up he was really tired. So that’s a good thing!

After my Oerol holiday I had this Yoga health festival Zeeland where I teached 3 Hoopdance workshops. Good Vibes and again the sun came in. It was really a hot day to do Hoopdance for long time but people enjoyed it.
Proud to give workshops there because it’s something new in this part of Holland and it was a huge success. So next year I hope to be there again. It was a long drive and a long sunny day but it was totally worth the drive.
Happy that my mom drove us to Zeeland and that she enjoyed the festival too.

So now I have to make some new plans for couple of weeks, lots of fun things coming up. And of course I am busy with my next Hoopdance teacher training that takes a lot of time.

Surya Namaskara for everyone!

Yes it’s been a while ago! I am so busy with lot of plans, classes, study and making the new website and stuff but it’s all good and I love what I am doing. I already teatched two of my One with Nature workshops where we had this amazing sunshine and even the Cow’s came by to sniffing around. And the second Hoopdance course I gave was a great success. There are fun things coming up soon but this is the story so far. The K9 is doing good and we love to walk in the beautiful forest with so much Green. But this week it’s a little harder for him because of his Atopie ( allergic for grasses and some plants) and then there is the heat. So I have to walk early or late and keep an eye on how he’s doing. And his boss is little bit the same ūüėČ
I also have more Eczema when it’s to hot. When there is little wind or when I am moving there is no problem but I can’t lie down on the heatest moment of the day. But that’s just fine by me, I can do Hoopdance or Yoga and doing Surya Namaskara in Sunshine! Just enjoying this summer weather and salute the sun! I got so much more energy and vitamin D from this lovely sun! Hopefully I can enjoy Oerol with same kind of weather, I am really looking forward to this family/festival holiday! I missed it and really want to go to my Island! I’ll keep you posted

Wishing you the best holiday or enjoy summer in your own garden!


Happy Busy day’s!

It’s been a while ago that I write a new blog! I was quite busy last 3 weeks! I had to learn for my first aid certificate, and yes I got it! Then I was sub teaching a lot of extra Yoga classes besides my own classes. This week I had 4 Yogastudy day’s in Breda at Yogasite and then there are my working day’s in Hospitality and the making of new classes for Yoga and Hoopdance and my own practice. And then there is the HVIT (Home very important things) like my boyfriend, Dog, cleaning the house, and administration things.
Am I complaining? Nope I love it and have more energy then I ever had, and I am grateful for all those opportunities I’ve got. But let’s face it I am a human. I can’t sleep for 6 hours and then work from 7 till 12 at night day in and out. I really want to but there comes a moment your body starts to fight. And for my job the body and mind both are very important. So that’s the reason I let go of my Blogging these weeks and I will be writing when I am able to write! I had a really inspiring workshop from Tulku Lobsang about compassion and Love and learned a lot from him! So if I want to keep doing the things I like to do I need some self love and compassion and I am practicing right now ūüėČ

Also my beautiful niece Amelie is born last week! She is so cute and hope te see her again soon! I still don’t want baby’s our self but I am going to be the most fun and favorite Aunt there is!

Veluwe Weekend!





Last weekend I was spending some time with Mathy and the family on the Veluwe resort. After being busy all the time I needed some time to rest and relax a bit. ¬†Every year we have this weekend and this time it came at the right time! ¬†That also means I still do my personal Yoga and Hoop practice and playing around in the park or Tree’s ūüėČ that’s also part of relaxing. To feel free and one with Nature again . Yes I am thirty now but that doesn’t mean I have to stop playing! You grow old when you stop playing so I am not going to do that! ¬†Some people think I am a bit crazy but little bit crazy is fine by me! I am doing my thing and hope I can inspire some people. After this weekend I am busy again and have lots of new plans coming up so I will keep you posted !

How Hoopdance improved my Yogapractice!

As you know I am very busy with my Hoopdance stuff! The teacher training, my own practice and also teaching. ¬†So last saterday I had to teach at Hellemond Sport my Poweryoga class. So I was telling my students that we are going to practice setu bandha sarvangasana¬†(brug) and for some people the¬†urdhva dhanurasana (wiel). ¬†And that sometimes there is no space yet in shoulders, elbows and wrist or other joints. So they have to be patient and don’t get frustrated because I have some issues with this pose too! And while I was saying this and show them my Urdhva dhanurasana I felt that I had so much more space then last time I was practicing this Pose. I came much higher and it felt really nice. ¬†Two years ago I practiced this pose almost every day and didn’t come any further. Now I didn’t do this one for a long time, but I use ¬†these joints a lot in Hoopdance! This means my Hoopdance practice helped my Yogapractice. How cool is that? Also it’s much easier to use the Bandha’s ¬†for Yoga if you do a lot of Hooppractice. And the second thing to learn from this is that sometimes hard and forced practice will not bring you further and you have to let it go and maybe within some time it could still happen. And if not, that’s fine too! My Urdhva Dhanurasana can still improve and I see a lot in this picture ¬†I want to adjust but I know it will be better in time if I be patient and enjoy this progress! I hope I will inspire you to do Yoga and Hoopdance for yourself not because the pose needs to be perfect!

Hoopdance level 1 Cursus!

Schrijf je nu in voor de leukste en hipste manier om fit te worden! Maar let op het kan verslavend werken.

Nieuw in T’ Gooi!

Hoopdance Hilversum introduceert Hoopdance!

De workshop Hoopdance bij Holibody was een groot succes dus per Februari starten er 2 Hoopdance Level 1 Cursussen. Met elke week een uur Hoopdance les voor 10 weken lang! Zodat je een mooie basis hebt om zelf aan de slag te gaan op het strand of festival of gewoon in de tuin. Geschikt voor beginners vanaf de leeftijd 18 tot oneindig. Ben je jonger stuur mij dan een mail dan kijken we wat er mogelijk is.

Geef je op voor 1 Februari via mijn email: yogacynthia@hotmail.com en zet erbij of je voor de zondag of maandag inschrijft, gegevens en of je een abonnement voor Holibody hebt!Holibody leden betalen 9 lessen ipv 10! Bij een inschrijving van minimaal 6 personen gaan de lessen door en ontvangt ieder een factuur van de Cursus die voor aanvang betaald moet worden. Het is mogelijk tegen een kleine vergoeding in 2 keer te betalen. Voor de Zondag cursus van 12.00 tot 13.00 uur bij Holibody kijk op mijn blog link voor prijs, tijd en Data op

Voor de Maandag cursus van 20.00 tot 21.00 uur bij Dudok Arena 303 (Optisport ingang) kijk op mijn blog link voor prijs, tijd, data en info!LET OP voor deze cursus schrijf je je in voor 27 Januari! De Dudok lessen zijn in een grote Gymzaal en de prijs word lager bij meer inschrijvingen! Dit omdat ik dan minder persoonlijke aandacht kan geven en door meer personen een kleine korting kan geven. Hoepels zijn aanwezig maar als je hebt mag je je eigen meenemen.

In deze cursus leer/krijg je:

  • Warming up en Cooling Down
  • Elke les nieuwe technieken
  • Varierende muziek van Rock’n Roll, Reaggea tot tophits.
  • Leuke en motiverende groepsopdrachten
  • Tijd om zelf te oefenen
  • Je creativiteit te gebruiken
  • motivatie en inspiratie door de groep
  • Geen moeilijke choreografie maar tools en techniek om zelf aan de slag te kunnen.
  • Ritme herkenning
  • Oog-Hand coordinatie beter te maken

Andere voordelen van Hoopdance zijn dat het een full body workout is en je veel beter je buikspieren leert te gebruiken. Als je al aan Yoga doet zal dit elkaar veel meer versterken! Door hoopdance leer je makkelijker de Bandha’s te gebruiken, en zal je snel soepeler worden in schouders en heupgebied. Daarentegen zal Yoga je bij Hoopdance helpen met de trucs en bewegingen, de concentratie, ademhaling en flow. Dus een uitstekende aanvulling op elkaar. Je ritme herkenning word beter, dus als je nooit zo goed bent met op de maat bewegen zal dit zeker gaan helpen. We werken express niet met moeilijke choreografien omdat ieder zijn eigen Hoopstyle moet gaan ontdekken. Daarbij Hoopdance is een bewegende meditatie en eigenlijk iedereen wordt hier vrolijk van. Bij deze Hoopdance lessen zal je altijd met een lach weer vertrekken! Grote kans dat je verslaafd bent en naar Level 2 door wilt. Last van de winterblues? Dan is dit het gezondste recept om er vanaf te komen! Voor alle leeftijden want:

We stoppen niet met spelen omdat we oud worden, maar we worden oud als we stoppen met spelen!

Study, Learn and Grow!

Maybe you noticed that I am writing a little bit less then I used too. I really try to write enough because I like to Blog and learn from it but I am doing a lot for my teaching, Yogastudy and my personal practice. ¬†Sometimes it’s hard to do everything I want because I love to do it all. I think it’s easier to have one thing you like to do but that’s not me. ¬†So I am sorry if my writing is little bit less then usual but I am working on it. The last ¬†four day’s I went ¬†to my Yogastudie in Breda which was amazing! The first day we got so much information ¬†I was really tired ¬†and thought I am not going to do ¬†the fourth day ¬†because it was too much. Then after a good nights ¬†sleep I was ready for the second day. This day was more physical so I had a lot more energy and the third day was the same.¬†But every day after some rest I want to learn more and more so also day four I traveled by train up and down to Breda. Day four was Physical with lot of Anatomy so now I am stiff and sore but I enjoyed these day’s ¬†at Yogasite with Robert Boustany and Dorinda. Every time it feels like coming home at this place and meeting lovely new Yogi people. ¬†My head is overloaded with all this information so today I am going to rest a bit but looking forward to more Study stuff! In Yoga it’s never finished and there is alway’s more to learn so until I dy I am going to do Yoga studies. Next week I am going to learn new Hoop tips and tricks and getting my teaching scills at Movin Circle so we keep on learning.

Yogaswing Backbends!

img_0514Sometimes you have to walk a lot or maybe you have work ¬†where you don’t sit wright or have pain in the lower back. ¬†Since I do Yoga I hardly have no pain in the back but sometimes it can be a bit stiff. I know how to release this ¬†and how to make space in my lower back. ¬†You can do this with regular Yoga but I really love to use ¬†the Yogaswing for a nice Backbend! It’s fun, relaxt and also a great Inversion. ¬†If you want to know more about the Yogaswing you can find it in PRODUCTS! It’s the same as earial Yoga but you have extra handles for more Asana’s or fitness workouts. Ofcourse you can make it a hammock for relaxing as well! ¬†In Nature, Garden or at Home enjoy your practice!
