New!  Yoga-dance day Embodying Shakti: Saturday March 30 from 10.30 – 18.00

On this day I teach together with Mati, dance teacher, of Move In Essence.


On this day we guide you into experiencing pure creative power, a.k.a. Shakti. The force that calls us forth to become who we really are and to live our potential fully. We are going to blend Yoga and Dance together in a unique way so they organically strengthen support and strengthen each other.

The theme of the day is inner strength, freedom and rebirth. We use the story of the yoga/tantra goddesses Durga and Kali (*) taken from the Indian mythology.

In the morning we will experience this story in a more dynamic way. In the afternoon we take this energy deeper inside, to integrate it within ourselves within a deeper container of softness and silence.

(*) Durga is the “warrior-mother”, who stands for justice and freedom. She protects our hearts against danger both from without and within, such as undermining thoughts and patterns. She is the one that comes to save you when nothing or no one else can.

(*) Kali is the “black one”, the one that dares to look into death, the ultimate power of destruction in favour of the light. She emerges out of Durga’s third eye to lead you to your true inner freedom.

Shakti Circle Yoga:  Every first Saturday of the month 10.00 – 11.30


Shakti is the sacred feminine force of creation. She is the love that brings consciousness into form. She is the dance and the juice of life. She is the force that urges us to become who we really are and live our life fully and abundantly. She has many faces and qualities. Like creativity, love, communication, intuition, prosperity, beauty, intimacy, to name just a few. But also the fierce powers of untamed freedom and radical transformation.

We are going to tap into, explore, experience and embody this Shakti potential. So we can apply this force and her aspects in our daily lives. How do we live a life of spiritual awakening in a feminine way? How do we heighten our capacity to grow in our strength, love more fearlessly and deeply, create abundance and move through the world in our unique authenticity, beauty and delight?

Every month we will dress a different aspect of Shakti.

Maneesha will guide you into the energy through story telling, mantra’s, meditations, visualisations, breath and related yoga poses. In a practical way and easy to access for everyone/every level of yoga.

For women and men!
