Yoga Intensive: Embodied Yoga with Janet Stone
Finally, we can announce that Janet Stone is coming to Amsterdam! This workshop has been in the making for quite some years as we had to postpone the workshop in 2020. But the waiting makes it only sweeter that we finally get to practice with Janet!
Janet is known for her strong, Vinyasa flows, combined with elements of the practice that are often lost when time pressure shortens our practice: Sankalpa, storytelling, mantra, mudra, and pranayama. Diving into a weekend that offers all the elements of the practice will leave you feeling grounded, light, present, open-minded, embodied, and inspired. We are definitely ready for it!

The Intensive: Embodied Yoga
In this weekend workshop, you will experience what it means to practice from a place of embodiment and deep attention. Janet approaches the practice through sadhana (daily ritualized practice) as a way to explore the power of chanting, storytelling, aligning from the inside out, and sequencing from a place of inner knowing. You get to immerse in an experience that is both inspiring and embodying. The weekend’s focus will help recalibrate your inner compass and provide practices, tools, and resources you can explore long after our time together comes to a close.
Each session begins with a comprehensive practice that includes meditation, pranayama, asana, and chanting. Afternoons will be an opportunity to dive into the heart of what it means to embody yoga. With practice as our starting point, we’ll access the body’s innate intelligence. In community, we’ll refine our personal intentions, skills, and knowledge.
The workshop is open to yoga practitioners, teachers, and therapists. If you want to deepen your practice, this workshop will help you understand a holistic approach to yoga. If you are a teacher, this workshop will support you in uncovering why you teach and what you uniquely have to offer.
What you will learn:
Sankalpa—the intention of the heart brought into action — understanding our own unique dharma
Chanting/Storytelling as a path to greater compassion and wisdom
Energetic Alignment to support integrity, stability, and wise movement
Intuitive asana sequencing to build our capacity for dynamic sequencing.
Partner and group work that supports each individual to articulate their intention into action.
We are gathering at the beautiful van Houten Church in Amsterdam-Weesp, only a 15-minute train ride from Amsterdam Central Station. This beautiful church with wooden floors offers a unique atmosphere and all the comfort you need for this training. During your lunch break, you can have a stroll along the picturesque canals in Weesp. There are different lunch options and stores, or you can enjoy the weather sitting on one of the terraces by the water.
Janet Stone’s studentship began at the age of 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. She shares from the alchemy of her own sadhana through bhakti yoga and the eight-limbed path.
In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.
