I was recently back in Holland , enjoying gorgeous little Haarlem, a real secret gem 15 min train ride from Amsterdam. I've led a Vinyasa Yoga class on August 8th at the local city beach, Stadstrand de Oerkap, a super cool little spot in Haarlem where people go to enjoy the summer sun, a good pizza and a fresh beer.
I had several total beginners among my students, what an honor to lead them through their first yoga class!... and I also made it to the local newspaper!
Here is the translation: "Wednesday morning around 11 it get's busy at the Haarlem city beach. All the participants, mainly yoga girls in leggings, find their spot in the sand. The city beach is doing an one time yoga class given by Silvia Neri from New York. She travels through Europe and everywhere she goes, she offers her yoga classes. And she is successful: the city beach is almost full. The house cat is curiously walking around looking for attention. During the sun salutation the train passes by. That's the charmer of the Haarlem city beach."
My Haarlem adventure has come to an end, tonight is full moon and tomorrow is my last day: back to NY! : )
The Yoga Trail officially starts today in Haarlem, Holland.
I'll be here until Jan 10, 2012 and I'll be exploring Yoga Studios in Haarlem and Amsterdam.
I'm not planning to teach at the moment but who knows?? : )
Today I'll go and check out a Bikram Yoga Studio in Haarlem.
