Lars Kropac

Acroyoga

Facebook

I've been practicing Acroyoga for three and a half years now and have received my teacher certification from the co-founder of Acroyoga, Jason Nemer.

Acroyoga, for me, is about giving, receiving, laughing together, taking care of and respecting each other.
A clear technique goes a long way in supporting stability, safety and fun!

Lars已經有3年半的教學及練習的經驗了。是Acroyoga國際認証的合格教師。對他而言,Acroyoga是著重在學會給予及接受以及一起歡笑,相互扶持及尊重。教學中,他特別著重清楚的技巧運用因為他相信正確的技巧才能讓Acroyoga在穏定,安全及有趣的環境中延續發展。

Winnie is a traveling yoga teacher who began her spiritual journey in 2015. She has been blessed to practice, teach, and learn every day since then. Winnie believes that yoga is for everyone and that the practice of yoga is far deeper than striking the perfect poses—yoga is a journey about discovering your inner potential and overcoming your past fears. Winnie has taught at many studios in Taipei, as well as traveled to many incredible countries.

 從2015年開始,Winnie展開了她的瑜珈成長之旅。她相信,瑜珈是適合所有人的。瑜珈的意義不只來自於征服困難的體位法,而是透過每天的練習,放下過去的恐懼、挑戰自己的極限。Winnie在台北擁有許多不同的教學經驗,也時常到世界各地進修。在體驗不同文化同時,她也非常積極參與當地的瑜珈課程,增進自己的瑜珈視野。Winnie非常期待能在Oceansound和大家分享與交流!

I am blessed to have met many respected teachers and practiced under their guidance. I have found yin yoga, along with the practice of mindfulness, to be most helpful in the recent years.

Still growing and expanding my wings in a traditional way, I am taking off the illusions of perfection layer by layer, getting back to the basics. I love running through the forests with my baby dog, being embraced of the forests and caressed by the wind and the rain.

很幸運的可以許多資深瑜珈練習者學習,更繼續在 Michelle Chu老師和Sarah Powers ࠋ老師的帶領ୗ㧓驗陰瑜珈中͆正念͇的精㧒࿧ࠋ在偉大的自然中發現細微的美妙ࠋ背山群擁抱的感受ࠊ現在的我享受被大樹環繞ࠋ吸著,看見更多生活中的細節,感受生࿨的豐盛跟寶貴和思緒ࠊ情緒ࠊ用࿧吸來觀察自己的身㧓

Yoanna pan

meditation

I'm a certified Hatha yoga instructor by Yog Peeth in Rishikesh India, and a daily meditation practitioner.

After years of self-searching, I've found my life calling in sharing with people to realise and empower themselves throughout meditation and yoga practice.

學生時期開始練習瑜伽,在體位法的練習上使我的身體健康、能量平衡,但心總是漂浮不定著。有次因緣際會之下參加了內觀冥想,從此改變了我對未來人生的看法,就像是找到一輩子最重要也最值得做的事。對於強烈的自我好奇及想了解生命的本質,我開始於印度、尼泊爾、峇里島進修瑜伽、冥想方法並取得師資,每天的靜坐練習讓我提升對生活周遭的意識,接受生命實像的本質。

Cheryl chan

energy creation

I'm a Reiki certified master. I have been working with people’s energy fields for over three years. I also have over a year of Reiki teaching experience. In my late 20's,
I was diagnosed with early stage cancer. This caused me to question many of the things in my life. Specifically, my spiritual beliefs and the way I live my life day-to-day. Reiki showed me how to help others find love in themselves.

我是個靈氣老師,也是個靈氣療癒師,走在能量療癒領域裡有三年多了。在接觸靈氣之前我是個無神論者,我只相信眼睛看到的世界,非眼耳鼻舌身可觸及的領域一慨不信,但在20多歲時被檢查出癌症初期,我開始詢問我從未想過的問題,人活著到底是為了什麼?在這身軀之前我存在嗎?在死亡後我也就死去了嗎?生命的意義又是什麼?許多問題牽引著我走向靈氣,透過靈氣的學習與練習,找到了自己生病的原因,學會療癒自己,也學會看見造成自己生命問題的情緒狀況,思維模式與行徑,我看見以前未能看見的問題,也開始去轉化生命中的問題。 靈氣引領我看見這世界處處都是奇蹟,處處有溫情。 在靈氣的帶領下,將所學的運用在,來到我身邊的個案以及學生們,找回我們內在都有的那份愛,那份神性。

Rose Goossen

Rose Goossen is an artist and innovator who is currently based in Taipei. During her opportunistic Canadian adolescence, she trained as a performing dancer in ballet, jazz and hip hop styles. Later, during an extended period of travel, she discovered the benefits of yoga and experienced practices such as ecstatic dance that focus less on technique and more on feeling and connection. Rose can now often be found lighting up the floor in smoky clubs, at live shows, and at outdoor festivals. Her workshops advocate dance as a method of internal exploration and authentic self-expression combined with the yogi philosophies.
