Energy Awareness - Talk with Juno Burger
Price EUR 20
What happens when you feel drained of energy after you met someone or when you come home from grocery shopping (especially during these special times)?
In this Bondi Talk-meets-Q&A energy therapist Juno Burger will take us on a fascinating journey into the mechanics and dynamics of energetic exchange between people. He will share his insights on the power of awareness, the compassionate heart and our own conditioning. “Understanding these dynamics will take you beyond blame and guilt and put you back in a place of authentic power.” – says Juno Burger.
We tend to think that everything will be allright if that from which we suffer will no longer be there; no more thoughts, conflict or pain. But what if true healing and peace will not come from the absence of what we think we suffer from but from the absence of that in us that is suffering? This is the paradox we will be exploring in this online Bondi Talk.
Becoming more conscious of our rich inner worlds and meeting it with awareness and compassion allows us to carefully deconstruct a very old story we hold about ourselves and others. This gives way to a much deeper connection to all that is alive and allows all of life to flow more freely, bringing abundant health, happiness and deep inner peace.
About Juno Burger.
As a young child Juno was already aware of subtle energies in and around him. Not having the context or education to successfully deal with this input he closed down as a survival strategy and detoured his life on a path of unsatisfactory career making in advertising. In his late twenties, he started studying different forms of personal healing and energy work. Later on, he came to see that including the subtle energies of spaces people live and work in is a fundamental step in restoring balance and harmony.
Over a period of more than 25 years Juno has studied and lived a path of awareness and compassion. He specialises in the dynamics of the energetic interaction between people and spaces. For 6 years now, he publishes monthly blogs under the name “the paradox of the compassionate heart’ sharing his simple, yet profound message of noticing and letting be.
Juno is a typical auto didactic. Through exploration and self-discovery, he maps out his findings and experiences of an ever-unfolding approach to life he calls RealEase. Inspired by Life itself and embracing all of it in its beauty, rawness, and diversity, Juno has discovered many valuable insights he shares in consults, lectures, workshops and retreats around the globe.

Breathing Therapy - The Healing Power of Proper Breathing (postponed)

As a Yoga & Breathwork Therapist, through yoga and breathing exercises Ellen helps people with specific health issues, from burnout, hyperventilation, anxiety to back pain. Ellen uses the ancient practices of yoga in a modern way, scientifically proven to have positive effects for the nervous system self-regulation and influencing both physiological factors (by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system) and psychological factors (by diverting attention from thoughts).
This specific workshop will include exercises to discover your current breathing patterns and any stagnations you may feel.

Proper breathing is associated with:
- better energy levels

- better digestion

Basically proper breathing brings better health; you will feel the positive effects throughout your whole being when you are able to improve and refine your breathing.
This workshop is especially good for those recovering from burnout and those dealing with (back) pain, anxiety or hyperventilation, but anyone who is interested in ‘simply’ improving their health and wellbeing can join. No experience with yoga is necessary.
Time for questions, personal guidance and a deeply restorative practice will be an integral part of the workshop.

Recharge & Release - Spring Edition (postponed)
Price EUR 35 | EUR 90 for full series (3 editions)
Lift your energy and release tensions & emotions with our Spring edition of the Recharge & Release workshop led by Judith van der Klink. Move from Yang to Yin to Yoga Nidra and discover the therapeutic effects of yoga by stimulating specific energy lines (“meridians”) that run through your body.
In this 2,5 hour workshop, Judith will guide you through an intelligent yin yang yoga sequence to support the movement of energy within your body and release any tensions & emotions you built up during Winter time. This Spring edition specifically focuses on the liver & gallbladder meridian. By stimulating these energy lines throughout the practice, you will restore balance, detox the organ systems, nourish the digestive system, release tension from spine and hips and remove (energetic) blockages. You will leave the workshop with a feeling of lightness and fresh new energy to look ahead, make new plans, make decisions, and to take action.
The workshop will start off with a vinyasa inspired Yang practice, moving mindfully on the rhythm of your breath. As the flow builds up, gradually your body starts to open up and generate energy. You will start to release tensions in the face, the shoulders, the spine and the hips. The sequence continues with a meditative Yin practice, designed to clear out blockages along the liver-gallbladder meridian – to stimulate the flow of your vital energy. In this part of the practice you turn further inwards and allow everything to be as it is. This way your body continues to recharge and release tensions and now it begins to free emotions as well. You are invited to use as many props (blankets, pillows, bolsters, blocks, etc) you need to come into the poses and arrive into your body, out of your head.
The workshop will end with a guided yoga nidra practice, allowing you to enter a deep restful state and have the therapeutic effects of this beautiful practice sink in.
All levels are welcome.
