Arie is passionate in assisting people in his sessions and programs to experience better health and wellbeing while removing the obstacles which get in the way of living a fulfilled life. He uses a holistic method combining breath, movement, meditation, adapted lifestyle and dietary habits and mindsets. After experiencing problems with his health such as burnout, chronic fatigue and difficulties to ground in the body these were obstacles for him to feeling peaceful, happy and to fulfilling his goals and dreams as an artist. He embarked a path of self healing and personal transformation to create the life which he yearned for and which now brings a deep sense of satisfaction. He feels great fulfillment in sharing this knowledge and practice with others in personal sessions, workshops and retreats.
In his personal sessions, classes and workshops he integrates practices from different traditions, both ancient and new, and has completed certified practitioner trainings in the Universal Healing Tao system and the Biodynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release system. The combination of taoist qigong, yoga and meditation, biodynamic breathwork and bioenergetics practices with an adapted diet, mental awareness and lifestyle is unique. These elements work well together to support personal healing and development. We experience a releasing of chronic holding patterns, both physical and mental, while also regenerating the body’s energetic and physical system through healing tao practices, nutrition and new lifestyle habits.
Arie is also creator and performer/facilitator of Reconnective Dance, an active dance meditation which combines movement, breath and meditation practices with expressive dance and an eclectic mix of live acoustic and electronic music. Through practicing this form of dance in alignment with yogic, taoist and bioenergetic principles energy is generated in the body and the mind and balance is restored. We regain inner peace, clarity and vitality. There is a greater sense of connection with the group. A sense of community develops. Arie produces the music for his classes and workshops, plays live instruments and collaborates with live musicians.
Sessions can be done with Arie in person or online with zoom. Video courses are also provided on his website. He has created a personal program where in a series of sessions he can assist you in your personal development. After these programs people experience a release of chronic stress, tension and pain in the body, a transformation from fearful, depressed or anxious states of being to joyful, peaceful, clear and courageous states of being. People feel an improved health, wellbeing and satisfaction, a grounding in the body and an increased clarity and direction in their lives.
