MINDFULNESS


Mindfulness is essential to our Zen-Strength offering. Through practicing mindfulness we learn, experience, benefit from and master our "zen-strength".


"Integrating Mindfulness practices into our lifestyle is highly effective. This holistic practice has a harmonising, zen-strength effect - benefiting our quality of everyday life, ability to manage stress and longevity".  

- Kathryn De Vos Siebert (Zen-Strength Founder-Owner)


We believe that the regular practice of meditation primes us for everyday or lifestyle mindfulness. Through meditation we learn how to still the mind, focus our energy and perform tasks more consciously.


Though meditation we become mentally stronger and physically calmer. Mental focus builds our mental strength, endurance and flexibility, and conscious body alignment and breath work calms the nervous system.


The practice of meditation is often misunderstood as an excuse to day-dream or a treatment for those who ‘just need to calm down’ but we believe it is essential to creating stillness and stability in our busy, modern lives.


"By focusing on breath, observing one’s own thoughts without judgement and creating space between activities, meditation allows us to properly connect with ourselves and the elements around us." 

- Firdose Moonda


Meditation is sensory. It is about noticing, feeling and ultimately reaching a place of peace, with oneself and one’s circumstances while also instilling in us the confidence to turn our ambitions into reality and our world into a place we are proud to be part of.


We firmly believe that establishing a regular, meditation practice is highly beneficial. We're also aware that initiating and committing to a regular (and sustained) meditation practice is, most often, a challenge for many people. As such, Zen-Strength offers mindfulness sessions (which include guided meditation) to help its clients learn, establish and dedicate themselves to regular meditation.

At Zen-Strength we consider meditation to be an essential ingredient of lifelong, holistic wellness - and as such we welcome all age groups.  


In our quiet and peaceful Mindfulness Room at Zen-Strength we offer Private Meditation, Semi-Private Meditation and Small-Group Meditation (max. 7 people). Water, mats, props, and blankets are provided. 

Our clients benefit from a unique mindfulness experience in that our classes are small - allowing for comfort in both physical and emotional space. We believe that through small groups our clients are more engaged in these sessions. Participants receive helpful insights and are gently encouraged to extend their meditation practice beyond the walls of Zen-Strength.


We bring a mobile version of Zen-Strength Meditation to the beach or park or to your home, hotel room or office space. The size, level and content of these classes are designed with your unique needs in mind. Mixed packages that combine 2 or more Zen-Strength services can be arranged.
