Mindfulness, Yoga

Cecile Mertens is a member of the professional association VMBN cat. 1 which makes her Mindfulness trainings eligible for reimbursement by several insurance companies. In addition to her trainings she also teaches meditation and Yin Yoga at Thrive.

Cecile gives yoga, coaching and mindfulness training to both adults and children, drawing on over 30 years of experience in the field of awareness and spiritual deepening; many forms of yoga, meditation, bodywork and psychotherapy. The beauty of the mindfulness training is that in a clear, simple and playful way several forms come together and that it is directly applicable in daily reality. that, with all that it gives and takes, invites us every moment to be here and now, open and awake. The training gives space to deepen where necessary but also to the necessary humour and relativisation â€"".

I teach class in yoga, meditation and mindfulness because I love to guide people in discovering and deepening the possibilities of their body and mind, and of the depth and gentle power of inner silence. I like to teach class in Thrive because of the pleasant atmosphere with attention for everyone. In my classes I like to give space for deepening but also for the necessary humor and relativization, with a connection to the reality of everyday life.
