It’s been a long wait – 2 months but the light is there. Only Level 2 so in spite of what I intuitively feel – I do have to work within guidelines.
So our doors will open on Thursday 14 May with the regular timetable:
9.30 – 11.00am Monday to Friday
2 classes on Saturday: 8.00am and 10.00am
The studio has been given a good clean, with props sanitized ready to restart. Until we are able to completely return to ‘Business as usual’ I am proposing 5 people per class.
Please book your space via texting or Whats App. I understand that some may wish to wait a bit longer.
I hope you have all been keeping well and sane 🤪 I appreciate your feedback and suggestions. Please feel free to call, or message, as that helps me to gauge where your heads are at.
Aerial yogis please contact me directly via text and we can start to fly.
I will close with this video by Dr. Bruce Lipman which demonstrates how amazing our bodies are and I would like to share a message:
‘Love/ heart will always do what it knows to be right. It does not consider consequences. When we operate from the heart – we are part of our physical world but we are also connected to an infinite stream of consciousness. Our perspective expands.
When you do what you know to be right – you start living life and stop life living you.
This is it. We are coming out of the other side of lockdown. We have all had an opportunity reflect and one thing for sure – our planet has had a chance to breathe. It is possible to create the world we would wish to live in. This video is some of what I would love to see. Feel free to comment on what you would like. Keep it positive – Law of Attraction and let the magic happen as it ripples out ✨✨✨ #dreamscancometrue#Truth#Light#GaiaHealing#HumanityHealing #MadeWithRipl via ripl.com
Below is the YouTube link to the latest meditation and as it’s Anzac Day may it also be a dedication for those that sacrificed for our freedom, our home.
Todays’ session is invoking the healing energy of the star cluster closest to earth – the Pleiades. Also known as the Seven Sisters and the Healing Stars.
It is believed by ancient cultures that we come from the stars and that the Pleiadeans provide the blueprint for the human consciousness/Codes of Light that are hidden in our DNA.
Pleiadeans Light Beings carry the energy of pure love. The colour of this healing ray is blue. As you are guided through the meditation I will ask you to visualise a ball of radiant blue light representing divine compassion and love. As you are held in that light you will be guided through your 12 Chakras.
Then we reconnect with the heart chakra and spread that light to the planetary heart chakra – Glastonbury (originally known as Avalon) and expand it into the ancient ley lines from the Tor and around the planet.
For the meditation feel free to lie down supporting your body, as needed, so that your body can move into deep relaxation. Crystals are the perfect companions for your meditation.
I hope you enjoy the session and I welcome your feedback.

I am working on another guided meditation for you all today and prior to that I wanted to touch on some of the positive effects of the yogic breathing practices.
Things like stress, lifestyle, diet, environment and lockdown all place a toll on our immune system.
By practising pranayama we are bringing positive life force into our bodies. Helping us to stay calm, soothe the nervous system and strengthen our immune system. Prana means life force, vitality, energy. Yama means expansion, length, prolongation.
‘Pranayama is the way to control the vital life force.’ The Spirit of Yoga by Cat de Rham & Michele Gill.
The following simple practice is called ‘Squaring off the Breath’. Apparently used by US Navy Seal Divers to help them stay calm and not panic if stuck under the water.
You can sit or lie for this practice. If you want to add another layer – place your hands on the hip creases as though you were putting your hands in your pockets. This is Jin Shin Jyutsu hand position 15. It means wash your heart with laughter. When the heart is burdened we can release the groin in order to clear/wash the burdens away. Freeing the heart to joy and laughter. It is a deeply calming position – one I often use to help me sleep.
Once you are settled comfortably – bring your awareness to your breath. Breathing in through the nose and out through the nose. Move your awareness to the navel and notice the in breath and the out breath at this point. As you breathe in the navel rises and as you breathe out the navel falls.
Just by observing your breath it will start to slow down. Now take 4 counts to breathe in. Hold the breath in for 4 counts. Take 4 counts to breathe out. Hold the breath out for 4 counts.
Repeat as many rounds as you wish. I would aim to do at least 9 rounds and then stay for awhile just observing the body and enjoying the stillness.
“The whirlpools of the mind can be drilled by the breath” Patanjali
I trust you are all keeping well during lockdown and enjoying some space to do those things that you never normally have time to do.
This week I have been busy spring cleaning the studio and have set up a large crystal grid in preparation for today.
There is a Global Meditation for us all to unite as one and focus on healing the planet and clearing Covid 19.
I have pre recorded a 40min meditation. Sorry I couldn’t do a live one our internet here isn’t good enough. It is the raw version so you’ll have to crank the volume up – didn’t get a chance to edit it. Downloading took way too long but it works.
Here’s the link on my YouTube page: Annie van Den Bergh Yoga Nidra Global Meditation
It’s a yoga Nidra style so you can lie comfortably. If you have any crystals you’d like to hold or place around you. That would be perfect.
And if meditation isn’t your thing then at 2.45pm do a random act of kindness: bake gifts, tend to the garden, connect with someone you’ve been meaning too. It all comes down to our intention.
We are back on track again for classes tomorrow :). Looking forward to seeing you all. Continuing with the ZenTangle Meditation theme – join me for a
Mandala Workshop on Sunday 8 September from 2.00 – 4.00pm. A wonderful way to switch the mind off and tap into your creativity with simple, repetitive patterns.
In this session we will be creating colourful backgrounds which we will then use for our Mandala design. You will have handouts to take home with you to keep you inspired and a fineliner pen to accent your patterns.
There are a just few places left. Cost is $50. Book by texting me: 021 379 286 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Beading Days are booking up too. Both sessions on Sunday 22 September and Sunday 13 October are full. Let me know if you are keen to do one and I will arrange some more days.
There will also be another Rune Workshop in October where you will be making your own runes and learning how to read them. Now these could be a great Christmas gift …. yep it’s coming !!! If you are keen message or email me and I will set a date.
