Weekend Yoga & Music Intensive
We are excited to host Lara Zilibowitz and Benny Holloway in Amsterdam for the first time! Lara and Benny created a unique offering together that goes well beyond what yoga and music have to offer separately. They draw from embodied wisdom from different lineages, creating a practice that allows for creativity, free expression, embodiment, and new insights. Lara's poetic teaching style is enhanced by Benny's hypnotic music. So, get ready for some true magic!
The weekend consists of two days that build on each other. Joining both days allows you to fully immerse and really benefit from the transformational power of their teachings. Allow yourself the time and space to tap into your body, your creativity, and your sense of freedom. It will be worth it!

The Immersion: Metamorphosis
'And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.'
Join international yoga teacher and art therapist Lara Zilibowitz & mystical musician Benny Holloway on a transformative two-day journey into embodied freedom and expression.
Just like a caterpillar entering into a chrysalis, this weekend is an ecstatic rite of passage for anyone who feels the longing to wake up to their wild, unbound, and expansive nature. To remember who they really are, when they’re not striving to be someone they’re not…
Throughout the weekend you will be guided through a dynamic mix of modalities, from yoga, embodiment, meditation, and breathwork, to vocal expression and transcendental sound journeys as well as shamanic technologies of dance and creative art externalization, to break free from the barriers that hold you back from fully taking flight.
Saturday: The Chrysalis
The Immersion will start on Saturday with an opening circle and a full yoga and meditation practice. After the break, you will be guided through a session to activate your voice and allow for vocal release. The day will be closed with a bodywork integration.
Sunday: The Descent & The Rebirth
Sunday starts again with a full yoga and breathwork practice. After the break, you will be taken on an expressive arts journey. Toward the end of the day, all practices will be integrated, getting you ready to move back into your life with new connections, experiences, and clarity.
This Immersion is for Anyone craving:
To connect deeply with the wisdom of your body
To remember your intrinsic creative genius
To experience the freedom and aliveness always available to you
To explore your internal landscape and how to move as who you truly are
To release old patterns of contraction and fear
To engage in a personal full-bodied flowering into your essence
