Women's Circle with Martina & Anna
Laughter Yoga Workshop ~ with Johanna
When was the last time you had a good laugh? Let go of physical and emotional tension. Boost your immune system and feel more light-hearted and joyful!
Laughter Yoga is a practise, involving prolonged voluntary laughter that provides the same physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter.
We will stretch, chant and use breathing techniques, laughter exercises and childlike playfulness to release tension. Learn how to do these exercises on a regular basis and you will bring more joy into your life!
Johanna is a passionate traveller and surfer and has been practising yoga for over 10 years. After travelling the world, experimenting with different yoga styles and methods and eventually her travels brought her to the country of origin of yoga, India. She completed her yoga teacher training with Trimurti Yoga School (RYS Yoga Alliance) in the beautiful Himalayan mountain province of Dharamsala in India. She is excited to share her experience and the benefits of yoga and laughter with you. Johanna loves being out in nature; be it surfing in the ocean or hiking in the mountains, she loves meeting new people from different places all over the world who have a passion for the things they love.

How can sensitivity become a gift ~ a Mindfulness Workshop for sensitive and passionate women ~ with Stine Marcinkowski
The purpose of the workshop
How can greater awareness and a mindful approach to life make us more observant of ourselves and our needs, so that we learn to listen and trust our body’s signals?
How can we handle stress and anxiety by focusing on the moment and becoming consciously aware of our breath? How do we learn to relax into ourselves, so that we instinctively know what's right for us? How do we, as sensitive individuals and women, learn to set limits and boundaries around our time so we do not feel guilty of saying no?
This three-hour women’s-workshop introduces the concept of high sensitivity and sees it in relation to mindfulness, personal durability and femininity. We undergo a series of exercises that can help you find new ways to manage your own level of sensitivity. Exercises come from mindfulness, meditation, yoga, authentic movement and somatic principles.
About being highly sensitive
As highly sensitive people we are often full of compassion and empathy for others. We are often social beings, who are passionate and who pay attention to everything that moves around us. We take the environment in a hypersensitive manner and our intuition is often strong because we feel things deeply and our nervous system is more sensitive than others.
Sometimes it may seem like we do not have enough hard skin on our bodies, as we easily can be affected by other people's feelings and energies. We may also feel depressed and exhausted if we do not get enough time for recuperation. If we've been among people for too long we can often get the feeling of wanting to escape, because our energy has been depleted. So we need to find strategies and ways in which to take care of ourselves in a wholesome way.
High sensitivity can often be misunderstood as being introvert, though it is not the same. One can be extrovert and highly sensitive and therefore need a lot of time for recuperation after social engagements and a full working day. This fact can lead to feeling wrong and insufficient. But it is the not so. Sensitivity is a gift. Though if we do not learn to listen to it but just run over our personal stop signals, we may loose contact with who we are and our intuition.
About Stine Marcinkowski
The workshop is led by Stine Marcinkowski; author of Mindful Leadership for the Modern Worker, coach, certified yoga teacher and somatic movement educator. Stine, who herself is a sensitive person, is passionate to help other women with their sensitivity and personal sustainability. In particular, her interest lies in how we as women deal and live in relation with our menstrual cycle by practicing a more mindful, contemplative and loving relationship to ourselves, and life as a whole.
