Welcome to Impact Yoga.

Learn how to bend so you don’t break.

Impact Yoga teacher Kirsten is passionate about showing people how to work together with the their own mind, body & heart as a holistic support system within themselves through the knowledge of Yin Yoga and mindfulness.

Grant yourself the tools to work with physical, emotional and mental challenges through the deeply nourishing knowledge of Yin that combines the ancient knowledge of yoga with Chinese energy meridians. Impact Yoga shows you how to tune into your true self and discover what you need in order to be you. Whether it’s finding your unique version of a pose that nourishes your health, a desire for growth in personal mindful leadership, or treating yourself to the ultimate self-care Yoga Retreat – feel the impact and experience the difference for yourself when everything comes together as one.

Impact Yoga offers (inter)national Yoga Retreats, workshops, holistic health consults, and private & business yoga programs for you to discover. You will also find Kirsten teaching weekly (yin inspired) Corona Yoga classes online and at different yoga studios in Amsterdam.

The story behind Yin Yoga

Yin and Yang

Many of us live fast-paced, Yang-orientated lives with lots of external stimulation. Always busy, making plans, and running to our next appointment, long working hours and leading active social lives. Often we manage this just fine and get a lot of things done this way.

However, we all reach that point we need to recharge our battery and feel the urge to balance out the “Yang” with some “Yin” – taking time to slow down again. It all comes down to balance and learning how to bend so you don’t break.

Yin yoga is a very passive, nourishing form of yoga in which we stimulate the deeper layers of the body. In yin yoga we stay in a pose for a longer amount of time so we can stimulate the deeper layers of the body: our connective tissues, ligaments, tendons, organs, bones, energy meridians,  and most importantly our fascia. It is fascia that holds our body together. It envelops our organs, our muscles, our bones and it is vital to our overall health, ability to move and proper functioning of our internal communication systems.

In Yin yoga we don’t use the body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into our body. Yin invites you to feel. To be. Learn how to listen to your body, to trust your instincts and to know your true self.

 

 

As the ancient Taoist philosophy describes:

‘Yin cannot exist without Yang, nor Yang without Yin. Just as shade cannot exist without light, and light can only be light when contrasted to darkness.’
