The Background to the Creation of F**k It Yoga
John speaking –
“A while back I developed a problem with my achilles heels (having plodded around in sandals for too long), and this led me into doing regular yoga-like stretching.
And I really rather liked them.
So I added some more yoga (with the help of a great yoga teacher, Meg Jackson) and some Qigong.
And, as well as helping with the heels, I found (to my delight) that this mixture was getting me to a ‘F**k It Space’ in a very effective and powerful way.
And getting into this ‘F**k It Space’ – when we’re really relaxed no matter what is going on, when we’re lighter about life, when we simply feel good and calm – is what really interests me.
So the thought arose…
Why not teach people this special form of yoga, with the aim of taking people to this powerful F**k It State? It will contain the beautiful yoga that people are familiar with, but take people to this unfamiliar space.
So I’ve got together with aforementioned yoga teacher – Meg Jackson (founder of ‘Real Life Yoga’ in London). And we’ve put something together that’s both familiar and brand new.
And you’re going to love it.

‘Fuck it’ van John Parkin is een buitengewoon uitdagend, humoristisch en inspirerend boek. Door regelmatig Fuck it te roepen kun je je leven ingrijpend veranderen. Je hoeft niet te mediteren, veel te bidden of doelgericht te werken aan je geluk. Want Fuck it werkt als een krachtige mantra en heeft een onontkoombaar effect.
Fuck it roepen is volgens auteur John Parkin de ultieme aansporing om je eigen weg te volgen. Daarnaast is het bij uitstek een spirituele handeling. ‘Fuck it’ is de perfecte vertaling van oosterse spirituele concepten als laten gaan, loslaten, overgave en ware vrijheid vinden. Fuck it zeggen tegen de problemen en zorgen die je dagelijks tegenkomt, is een eenvoudige manier om een gelukkig leven te leiden. De uitroep daagt je uit om in het moment te gaan leven. Tegelijkertijd is de uitdrukking zo krachtig dat wij, nuchtere westerlingen, eindelijk onze gestreste, gespannen en propvolle levens eens de rug toe durven keren.
Een informatief, grappig, realistisch en baanbrekend boek op het gebied van persoonlijke, spirituele ontwikkeling.
John Parkin is de zoon van anglicaanse priesters. Hij bestudeert en beoefent al meer dan twintig jaar oosterse wijsheid.

Organiseert Yogic moments een yogaweek bij Villa Marsi ” The Hill That Breathes” onderstaand het programma en de yoga leraren.
YOGA FOR PERSONAL INTEGRATION & TRANSFORMATION
The intention of the teachers is to create an opening for transformation in the students. You will have a better and lasting knowledge about the methods described in the Yoga Sutras. That will lead to a confident and committed self practice.
THEORY & PRACTICE
YogicMoments retreats always include theory, practice and private sessions. Yoga as described by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali will be presented as a tool for personal transformation. The importance of understanding the yoga philosophy as a framework for various practices including asana, pranayama, concentration and meditation. Both, the theory and practice, are step by step processes, developing building blocks necessary for a suitable, self yoga practice.
Introduction of the Vinyasa Yoga principle – that is the combination of breath and movement. The practice sequence starts with Pranayama, in a sited upright position where the mind is absorbed into the breath. The following Asana practice will be of mild nature. The primary focus lies on the breath. The practice ends with few moments of peace and reflection
Hip and Twist:
The practice starts once again with Pranayama. We will discuss specific principles of alignment for a safety of the hips and spine. The Asana sequence will be deepened with a clear focus on hips and twists. Preparation of hips and twists (Vinyasa Krama): mild hip openers and twists will lead to more advanced poses.
Back & forth:
The Asana practice will be further deepened whereas the focus is on backbends. We will discuss the principles of alignment for safety of the spine in backbends. Preparation for backbends (Vinyasa Krama): strengthening, lengthening & backbending. This time the practice ends with pranayama and meditation.
The Asana practice is characterized by balances and inversions. In this context, sattvic lightness is essential in order to remain effortless in (arm) balances and inversions. Pranayama and meditation will complete the practice.
A Vinyasa Asana practice will be provided that includes all aspects, which have been introduced the days before. That means hip-opener, twists, backbends, balances and inversions will constitute a holistic and well-balanced yoga sequence. Pranayama and meditation complete the asana practice.
The practice starts with Pranayama and deep breath control. From there we pass on to a gentle Vinyasa sequence, which though considers all previously introduced (Asana) categories.
At the end, a mild Vinyasa sequence will underline the importance of breath and meditation, which is / should be ultimately the primary goal of each practitioner.

„Be water my friend!“
Teodor practiced yoga since he was 16 years old. He learned the ancient yoga techniques – such as Asana, Pranayama and Meditation – from his father. Teodor’s life has been fundamentally influenced by the teachings of yoga. His yogic path carried him through the various yoga schools in the U.S. and India. For over ten years he is now teaching yoga, putting great emphasis not only on the anatomically correct performance of the yoga asanas, but also on the Ujjayi breathing technique and on classical yoga philosophy. Despite his great interest in therapeutical yoga (such as described by TKV Desikachar and A.G. Mohan, with whom he has also studied many times), Teodor carries the most dynamic yoga style in his heart, namely Power Vinyasa Yoga, on which he is regularly giving classes, workshops and retreats.
Teodor graduated with Summa Cum Laude in Media Studies at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands. He also studied language and communication science at the University of Aachen in Germany. Alongside his profession, he teaches wholeheartedly yoga which, from his point of view, is the key element to a fulfilling life, leading to more peace and awareness in every single moment.
