Learn to breathe

With Max Strom

Heal Yourself and Your Relationships

How does the way we breathe affect our stress level, anxiety, quality of sleep, and even our relationships? Breath penetrates, breath invigorates, and breath heals. The effect of Max’s breath work can lead to profound release and calm. Other benefits may include increased energy and mental clarity. This works so quickly and effectively that Max has successfully brought his unique breathing program into the corporate world.  Class will include a lecture, simple but high impact breathing exercises; very gentle breath-initiated movement, and guided meditation. 
 

Helpful reminders: 

  • Do not eat at least one hour before practice and eat lightly.
  • Dress in loose-fitting clothing.
  • Arrive a few minutes early & leave your cell-phone off

About Max Strom

"Yes, we need a sustainable world but we also need a sustainable life; we need a sustainable home and a sustainable body."

– Max in one of his TED talks


Ask yourself:

Do you sleep well? Do you get the flu or a cold easily? 
Do you have panic attacks (you're not weird, a lot of people do!)? Do you feel alone? Do you tend to work or be with friends rather than taking time to actually feel how you're doing? Do you suppress emotions? Do you experience stress?

All of these are very common in our society these days. And still, we go on. As if we don't realise it's actually possible to live a sustainable life. At ease, healthy, with a lot of joy.

De Duif

In the midst of the historic center, De Duif (The Pigeon) is a hidden jewel. If you look closely, you will discover a beautiful neoclassicist sculpture. Behind the modest appearance you’ll find a surprisingly big sacred space, with a very special energy.

The first stone for De Duif was laid in 1857. Interestingly the current church got named after it’s predecessor the 17th century De eerste steen voor de huidige Duifkerk werd in april 1857 gelegd. Interessant genoeg dankt de huidige kerk haar naam aan een voorganger, het 17e-eeuwse hiding church “Het Vrededuifje”, meaning the Peace Pigeon. Very special that we will practice Inner Peace here. 

Why do we practice Inner Peace in a church?

Churches are designed to channel universal wisdom to the people. Their locations are always chosen with a clear mind, their energetic field functioning as the nadis of the city. These urban sanctuaries are charged with spiritual energy. By practicing inner peace in these sacred places, we tap into this energy. Here we can come in oneness with the universe and go beyond religion.

 

“Time spent with Max is an investment in personal wellbeing as well as exceptional training for yoga teachers or those who wish to teach. He is one of the finest teachers of our time.”

– Fuhrman, teacher/owner, Yoga Gallery, Overland Park, KS

"Peace is not only the absence of war, but also a way of seeing the world, and the choices we make are how we express and manifest that vision of the world."

– Max Strom

"Before you start to meditate... Learn how to breathe intentionally first."
