“To be alive in this beautiful, self-organising universe – to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it – is a wonder beyond words.” (Joanna Macy)
Slow down. Breathe. Smile.
Move outside, in nature.
Feel the sun on your face, the wind in your hair.
Listen to the sounds of nature around you.
This is your moment for yourself.
Meet new people.
And walk back to your own path.
…. With the 5 Elements of Nature Walk
The 5 Elements of Nature Walk is a series of five meditative walks on easily accessible locations in Amsterdam nature, Zandvoort-aan-Zee, or the dunes-forest-beach nearby Kennemerduincamping Bakkum. The walking is combined with exercises and movements with influences from yoga, tai chi and shinrin-yoku, breathing exercises and meditation, and inspired by the Mind-Walk® method.
Every training you experience one of the 5 elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether (space) in nature and in yourself. Being outside, in nature gives you a moment of rest and relaxation and brings your body and mind into balance. The group size is max. 6 people, and the duration of the training is 1.5 hrs. It is also possible to take part in a single training, instead of following the full series of 5.
The trainings are suitable for both the novice and the more experienced hiker, for those recovering from a burn-out or long-Covid, or as a company fitness programme / team event.
We conclude each training with a cup of tea, and the possibility to share experiences with each other.
Your investment in yourself:
Single training €15
Series of 5 trainings €65
Every season a new 5 Elements of Nature Walk series starts. New dates / locations will be listed here. Looking forward to welcome you in nature at a training!
Going outside is actually going inside. Walk back to yourself and your own path, relax, improve your health and fitness and return to your essence in a friendly and safe atmosphere.
