YOGA for YOU (your antidote to stress)

YOGA & English for YOU

Yoga: your best antidote to stress  

Freitags 17:45 in der LAGERHALLE

alle Altersgruppen ab ca.12 Jr.

For me practising yoga is like sailing on a boat that teaches you to navigate the ocean of life, sometimes calm, sometimes with high and violent waves. It brings you to a safe haven with your body, mind and soul a little battered but enriched by having taken on board valuable lessons of how to deal with issues occurring during your  journey.

Summer is here!

sunsalutesolstice16We had the most wonderful summer solstice evening last night in Osnabrück, celebrated with sun saluations during the outdoor event in honor of International Yoga Day. The Piesberger Gesellschaftshaus offered the perfect venue at the old coal station at the foot of the Piesberg. It was a very special evening because we were doing yoga together with millions of people all over the globe as it was the second year since the United Nations had declared  21 June to World Yoga Day. On top of that we were having a full moon on this summer’s longest day, which only happens once every 70 years. We were fortunate enough to have a dry spell for the 1.5 hours this session took. Even though the full moon was hidden by the clouds, we could feel the good vibes through nature’s wonderful expressions both in sound (bird song  abound) and sights (trees overhead and a natural stone wall to feel secure).20160621_194425

The goal of this free event on this summer solstice evening was to give people the chance to get familiar with YOGA or to celebrate YOGA and its benefits for health and the balancing of body and mind. The session was given in a mix of German and English to underline its international character.

The thought for the night was to be mindful of how we can practice non-violence towards others and ourselves, one of the underpinning principles of yoga. Non-violence can begin with wishing other people what you would want for yourself, and in the sense that you aren’t too critical of well-intended attempts of doing well. This also goes for your attitude towards yourself, you can only try your best and have as positive an outlook on life as you can.

With special thanks to the Osnabrücker Dampflockfreunde and the Piesberger Gesellschaftshaus for their cooperation in Osnabück’s first celebration of International YOGA Day.

Namaste 🙂

21 June World YOGA Day Osnabrück

Druids Celebrate The Summer Solstice At Stonehenge

The prehistoric landmark of Stonehenge lies in exact alignment with the midsummer sunset. This means that when you’re in England it seems the perfect spot to celebrate the summer solstice on the longest day of the year

3menhirsFWAt the Piesberg however, we have our own stone collection and it seems the ideal place for Osnabrück to celebrate the height of summer. And what better way to do it than by practicing some yoga to reflect on our relationship with nature.

It is the 2nd year that International YOGA Day will be observed on June 21st.

This year the Piesberger Gesellschaftshaus has been so kind to lend its cooperation to organizing an outdoor YOGA  event for every Osnabrücker who wants to try out yoga in English, German or in the universal language of yoga itself.

In 2014 the Indian prime minister declared  in front of the General Assembly of the UN:

“Yoga is an invaluable gift and a 5000 year old tradition which embodies the unity of mind and body, ….harmony between man and nature, a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but about discovering (through breath, reflection and exercise) the sense of oneness between yourself, the world and nature. By changing our lifestyle we can become conscious of how we can deal with climate change.”

We invite you to join in an Open air yoga session  in the green surroundings of the Piesberger Gesellschaftshaus on:

Tuesday 21 June at 19:30

to celebrate the longest day of the year 2016

No need to be flexible, you don’t need to speak English. You just need an open mind.

It is for everyone: for all levels, for all nationalities and for free.

Instructor: Christina Niese, Cambridge certified English teacher and  certified  in Ireland as a yoga teacher

Moving theatre in Osnabrück ‘Garderobe 45’

Dear blog reader,

It has been a wonderful weekend here in Osnabrück. Weather-wise we have been spoilt with sunshine and culturally I have been lucky enough to witness the most phenomenal theatre project I have been to for a long time.

Musikheaterlupe’s director Katrin Orth and the Piesberger Gesellschaftshaus produced a multi-dimensional play based on authentic local witness stories from the postwar years (WWII). These stories form the basis for the scenarios that take place in and around the Piesberg’s local function rooms. Weltuhr von Theo

The musical arrangements, the train ride on a historic railway locomotive and the video installations by my fellow landsman, Theo van Delft, made this play a unique experience that takes the theatregoer by the hand on a dream journey into the late forties, an era characterized by desolation, hunger and community spirit.

No less than 80 actors and musicians, both professional and amateur, in period costume, treat the public to a wonderful insight into bygone times and make the whole experience so heartfelt. There is a lot of historical material packed into this project and Katrin Orth managed to even pull the whole story into the present by making the audience realize the link to the current refugee issue without ever losing in authenticity, no mean feat…

The music that was selected plays a big role in evoking a fitting atmosphere to travel back in time. It forms the perfect accompaniment and is performed beautifully and soulfully, evoking an emotional current on which the public can make their way from one impressing scene to the next. Some take place out in the open, like on the train, or against the back drop of a most imposing rock formation in the old quarry, overgrown with ferns and other lush foliage, some in the different function rooms like the cloackroom (which is one meaning of the title ‘garderobe’, the other is ‘wardrobe’,  which raises the point that the costumes really pull one back into time and on top of that there’s the fact that the audience is asked to come dressed for the occasion and fitting to the time, as they are made to feel part of the play), the cellar and the main performance hall.

It was a most wondrous and exciting trip into the postwar epoch, one which I can only highly recommend for you to take as well.railwaytracksG45
