Just watching, just observing, just understanding. This is how our lives form and how we unfold into who we are. We learn a lot from the cats that came around us. In our yoga classes we teach about their tails and about their distance they keep between them. Their ability to say NO! And if you have been in our classes, you might remember that advice we sometimes give:”Before you do anything we suggest ( for all we give out are “serving suggestions”), just say no and see what comes up in this waiting time”. For it is all about learning from listening to your self on many levels!
The real environment is more chaotic then than artificial viral technical ones that promise you a more comfortable lifestyle away from the fearful and unpredictable real world.
A bit of Snow White’s bite in the apple of her stepmother putting her into unconscious sleep. and shouldn’t we all be blessed by a kiss of the prince?
How far do you trust the fake mother in dealing with your beautiful freedom?
We wish you a real Christmas without your tree, onto its trunks Christ was nailed to die.
According to Genesis, God gave dominion over nature, which is definitely different from domination! In fact it is pointing out that there is a limited amount of space around anything which can be protected. This is because of the limitation that domes create.A king might be able to inherit or conquer a “kingdom” but is that king able to look after this from where he settles down, or does he has to appoint many helpers, who need to be paid and now is forced to demand taxes from the ones that live in his domain. This is the start of domination and control.
Victor and Angela recently spoke with J Brown from the popular J Brown Yoga Talks podcast. J's enthusiasm for slowing down and gently disrupting rigid models of yoga asana (and the yoga scene, in general) made for a delightful conversation that many of Victor and Angela's students will enjoy. Tune in on your favorite podcast app or right from J Brown's website.
From the show notes:
Victor is excited to announce a three-part video conversation with with friend and student Blake Tedder about 16th century painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch. Where other commentaries on this incredible painting refer to the stunning detail and premonitory themes, Victor approaches the painting largely through the lens of inner transformation.
During the Covid times Blake came with the idea to interview us and made several podcasts which brings out a difference in the yoga teachings that developed over the last 40 years.
You are able to find these on :
We already have four Yoga Notebooks, so why not A Yoga Podcast? One of our students in North Carolina in the US wrote us with some questions about his yoga practice recently and then began thinking of how others might benefit from hearing the conversation- especially in these difficult times when we are so far apart. So Blake Tedder, with his background in yoga and in radio, reached out to us with the idea to make a podcast where we would talk about our earthy and spacious way of yoga and guiding people into their own body experience.
This blog is just to let you all know that Twan Vermeulen fixed the website in a way that we are able to put the latest messages on, which restores our communication with the world outside our Eftalou valley.
To be continued soon,
With our best wishes, victor and angela

As someone who clearly depends on what nature has given me and who was always willing to study all my given aspects of being alive, even opening up to all the unborn forms hidden in still invisible layers, I react to the need of people to manipulate, misuse and deform nature for their own financial benefits.
A lot of what happens in the human mind comes directly from the separation: humans and other animals.
