Following the face massage course held on 15th July 2014, I am proposing the Scalp massage which completes the head massage. We previously covered an introduction to face massage where tensions settle but we do not want to forget the rest of the head! During this short class, you will be able to revise your face massage skills should you wish to attend this class too. Those who would not have attended the face massage class can still learn separately how to massage the scalp :) This promotes relaxation to help release tensions. Please bring a yoga mat, a small pillow or cushion, a blanket, a bottle of water, a pen and paper. // A la suite du cours du massage du visage qui s’est tenu le 15 juillet , je vous propose le massage du cuir chevelu, qui complètera le massage de la tête. La dernière fois, nous avions commencé par le massage du visage où les tensions se logent, mais il n'est pas question de manquer le reste de la tête ! Pendant ce cours, vous aurez la possibilité de réviser le massage du visage (si vous avez participé à ce cours). Ceux qui n’auront pas participé au cours précédent pourront toujours apprendre séparément le massage du cuir chevelu :) Le massage du cuir chevelu aide lui aussi à la détente et au relâchement des tensions. Veuillez emmener un tapis de yoga, un petit oreiller ou coussin, une couverture, une bouteille d’eau, un stylo et du papier.

About the teacher, Marie Huynh

Coming from a corporate professional background in London and in Geneva, I realised that spending my life in the office was not the best thing to take care of myself. I went to Thailand to train on Traditional Thai Massages and discovered a complete different world and approach to taking care of our body and mind. I have trained for days, weeks, months and months before opening my own practice Zen-Moi in central Ferney-Voltaire, near the Airport and International Organisations. Having learnt a different approach to the human being's suffering, stress, and pains, I consider myself lucky to have had the precious chance to have trained from one of the best known Thai Traditional Medical & Massage School but also from elderly Thai women from the Thai countryside who hold the knowledge of Thai Massage. Nothing on earth is worth giving up our Health, no money can buy it so give yourself a chance: "Take care of your Body & Soul". What is on the inside of you is reflected to the outside. Emotional unhappiness takes place in the mind and often translates into pain in the body. The body is talking to you, telling you that something is wrong. We need to listen to the body and take care of ourselves ~ find a way to be happy, healthier, live longer and without pain. Visit my FB page under "Zen-Moi, Relaxation Traditionnelle Thaïe"

With the technology of the 20th century, humans were able to know for the first time what really happens at the depth of the skies and at the depths of the matter. And what we found looks like nothing we imagined before! Join this class to hear about what physics has to say today about reality: This world where time does not pass at a constant pace and the distance you have to run gets larger if you're fast. Where stars attract other stars' light, new room is created the whole time, and the shapes in the sky trace fingerprints smaller than atoms. Dizzying - awesome - is there anything more awesome than this? Probably yes, how about we are able to explore this madness! ...Join the second of the two sessions to hear about the epic theory of relativity and the mind-blowing findings of observational cosmology. ____________________ The class is open to everyone curious about the findings and the status of modern physics. Each session will begin with a wide intro followed by a discussion on the arising questions. Note that the second session will refer to some of the things discussed in the first one. ________ What this class is not: It's not a discussion about new age stuff or a comparison of science to supernatural beliefs. Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? [Douglas Adams]

Bring one of the following:

About the teacher, Deepanjali SAPKOTA and Simone REEVES

Deepanjali SAPKOTA: I grew up with a grandmother who kept telling me and all her disciples that nothing exists except our own self, the most important thing in life is to know/find out who we really are, and the only job we have on this planet is to experience our own self. I thought she was crazy and loved her always. This message became alive when I started asking myself big questions about life. Ever since I have been practicing Atma Gyan (in Nepali Soul Knowledge), a personal choice, a life style more in line with my being, and life suddenly transformed from being a hassle, a burden to a playground, an experiential bliss, empowerment, peace, love, compassion, unity, oneness, conscious and fountain of happiness flows within and quest for search outside stopped. During this journey I remembered the mission of my Life, my soul’s desire to share the insights, experiences, and my life journey by simply speaking about my own understanding of my soul which I believe has the same qualities like all souls in the world. Simone REEVES: Simone is passionate about calling forth the Leader that is in each of us and thus leading and living a life ‘on purpose’. As a Certified Professional Co-Active coach with over 20 years breadth and depth of experience in regional and global HR Leadership roles across various geographies, Simone is experienced in supporting individuals and organisations in achieving productive transformation through facilitating performance and change processes. Collaboration and co-creation in the moment is her favourite flavour of the month and she looks forward to involving you in the experience.

Sevillanas is probably the most seductive and popular flamenco dance in Andalusia (South of Spain). They come in a group of four. The aim of this class is that you learn the first Sevillana. It is usually danced by a man and a woman (but it can also be danced by two people of the same gender). When dancing Sevillanas, the man tries to seduce the woman almost without touching her. The dignified posture as well as the exchange of fiery glances plays an important part. In Andalusia, it is very rare to meet someone who cannot dance Sevillanas, because it is always danced in the Ferias (Andalusian Flamenco festivals). Andalusians are pretty good at carpe diem by socialising in Ferias, dancing Sevillanas, indulging themselves in exquisite tapas and relieving the thirst with typical Andalusian wine. The most well-known Flamenco festival in and outside Spain is “La Feria de Abril” in Seville, but Ferias can be found all over Andalusia on special days of the year. If you think you have seen it all, it is hard to impress you and you are openhearted, I highly recommend you attend to a Feria one day (especially with a local). For the ones with no desire to go to a Feria, they still can learn Sevillanas as a way of having fun, exercising, improving their coordination skills and correcting their posture to a more elegant and passionate one. Recommended: Women: comfortable high-heels, a skirt and black/red/polka dots clothing. Men: dressed in black.

About the teacher, Manuela Bernal Reyes

Curious about life, I have lived in five countries before deciding that I would like to stay in Switzerland. Although I am Andalusian (from Cadiz), I studied English Literature and Creative Writing in London, followed by a MA in Translation which was almost useless. After doing some translations here and there, I realised that being in front of a computer was not how I wanted to spend my life, so I went to Barcelona to study again, change my career and become a Spanish teacher. Currently, I work at an international language school here in Geneva. I mainly teach Spanish in companies, and I enjoy what I do very much because there is no one day the same, it gives me the chance to interact with interesting people and it makes me grow every day, both professionally and personally. I also work with kids, especially with a little special one, and it's like a paid hobby because it's something that I do out of pure pleasure.

Il y a environ 12 ans j'ai vu le mot "ayurvéda" dans un livre de bien-être. "Ayurvéda" est un mot sanskrit "ayur" veut dire "vie" et "véda", "connaissance". Voilà un un système qui permet à ceux qui l'appliquent d'avoir une meilleure connaissance de la vie afin d'établir un équilibre à l'intérieur et aussi avec notre environnement. La nutrition y joue un rôle très important. Je me nourris tous les jours et, donc, je peux agir à ce niveau pour maintenir cet équilibre. Je vous invite à venir (re)découvrir une approche individuelle et wholistique à la santé à travers mon parcours ayurvédique et de partir avec des astuces pour avoir d'avantage d'énergie. A la fin il y aura du temps pour vos questions. A noter: Le cours peut se faire EN FRANCAIS OU EN ANGLAIS selon les besoins des participants. The class can be IN ENGLISH OR FRENCH depending on participants' needs.

About the teacher, Janet Gomez

L'ayurvéda, le yoga, la nutrition et l'alimentation jouent un rôle important dans ma vie.

J'ai du plaisir à partager avec toute personne intéressée, surtout ceux/celles qui vivent une vie trépidante (comme moi!) pour les guider vers du bien-être.

Se reconnecter avec son corps, se recentrer sur soi, être présent dans l'instant, se sentir vivant, en pleine conscience, voilà pour moi l'esprit du yoga, dont le mot sanskrit "yuj" signifie l'union (entre le corps et l'esprit). La détente physique procurée naturellement par les postures apaise automatiquement l'esprit...il s'en suit alors une sensation de paix intérieure. Ce cours est ouvert à tous les niveaux. Merci de venir avec une tenue confortable et votre tapis de yoga (un linge ou une couverture fait aussi l'affaire). NAMASTE! :) Le rendez-vous est donné à l'Espace de Quartier Sècheron, mais le cours aura lieu au parc de la Perle du Lac si le temps le permet.

Making and canning jam is not a mystical process and you don't need fancy equipment, just a pan to cook the jam, a pot big enough to hold a few jars, and something to lift the jars out of their water bath. Assuming you have these, you can make jam. In this class we'll make a jam (recipe depends on what I find at the market) and go through how to can it using the boiling water method. And everyone will get to take some home for their toast. *** La préparation de la confiture n'a jamais été le fruit d'un quelconque procédé mystique, et aucun équipement spécifique n'y est vraiment nécessaire. Une grande poele pour cuire la confiture, une marmite assez grosse pour contenir plusieurs pots, et un ustensile permettant de sortir les pots de leur bain bouillant. Si vous avez tout ça à portée de main, alors vous savez faire de la confiture. Dans cette classe, nous ferons de la confiture (la recette dépendra du marché du jour) et, surtout, nous apprendrons comment la conserver. Et, bien sûr, à la fin de cours, tout le monde pourra repartir avec le fruit de son labeur afin d'en profiter plus tard. :)

More recently, she has become enamored with the crafts of knitting, crocheting, fine tailoring, and garment design. She makes most of her own clothes and wears a custom creation every day! She believes that nearly every facet of life can be enhanced by CRAFTSMANSHIP... cooking, eating, writing, conversing, BEING. Whatever you do, do it with devotion and love and freely share the beauty you create with your fellow human beings!

Samples of compostable plates, utensils and cups for demonstration will be provided as well as containers for showing samples! You can also be proactive by saving compostable items now and we can discuss these in class by filling a brown paper bag of compostables and storing it in your freezer (so it doesn't get smelly). Bring it in a plastic bag the day of class. Compostables include coffee grounds (including filters), tea bags, egg shells, fruit peels, and any other food scraps/leftovers - but no meat/fish.

Ben is new to the Trade School experience but loves the concept of small, informal & local teaching opportunities.

Alles start met een gesprek. Een sponsor voor een cultureel product vind je niet zomaar, dat is vaak je oom of je buurman: iemand die weet wat de waarde is van jouw werk. In deze les wil ik met jou dit gesprek voeren. Wat kun jij doen om je verdienvermogen te vergroten? We gaan in een kleine groep (max vijf leerlingen) onderzoeken waar onze blinde vlek zit. Op zoek naar alternatieve geldstromen. Dat begint met een gesprek. Je bent van harte welkom!

About the teacher, Nienke Binnendijk

Als cultureel econoom zet ik mij in om meer (financieel) draagvlak te creëren voor kunst en cultuur in Rotterdam en daarbuiten. Ik geloof in een maatschappij waarin cultuur veel meer op waarde wordt geschat dan in onze huidige samenleving, omdat dat verdraagzaamheid en daadwerkelijk samenleven bevordert. Daar draag ik aan bij door geldstromen te zoeken die nog onvoldoende ontwikkeld zijn, zoals via mecenaat en sponsorcontracten.
