News 24 March 2020

Yesterday evening the Dutch Government has announced new measures for the coming months. No contact until June 1. Not going to parties, no touching, 1,5 meters distance between people, no unnecessary shopping or going somewhere unless it’s inevitable.

Even though i felt, and perhaps you too, this was coming, it is still a bit of a shock to the system. It’s for real now. It’s more the mindset around this change than the understanding of why.

As a result my classes obviously will not be live either until that date (or longer depending on what the Dutch Government asks us to do). I do offer my dance classes online every Wednesday evening. And Saturday morning i’ll offer a meditation where we sit, walk and dance. You can find more information on both below.

The following information is for both the dance evening as well as the meditation morning.
How can I join?
You will need to download Zoom (free account) and make sure it works. Check your audio and your video. Then you’ll need to sign up (see zoom link below) and arrive for the dance 15 minutes earlier.

What do I need to do to prepare?
Download Zoom and test all is working
Prepare your space. Make it empty so you can move around. Light a candle or prepare a little altar for youself. Make sure other devices are turned off. And you can dance/meditate undisturbed. Write the events in your calendar. With everything going on it’s easy to forget.

If you can afford to pay €10 for the class please do.
If this is a problem (because you may have less or no income) please consider what you can pay, if anything… I’d rather have you join the class than you worry about finances.
Please donate (anything that suits your situation) via
It is very much appreciated.

Will it be recorded?
No, this is an in-the-moment event.

Can I invite someone to the class who’s never been before?
Yes, all who want to dance/meditate are welcome.

I ask you be on time (15 minutes earlier) and stay till the end.
The dance/meditation is a great way to release tension, notice what you need and your body needs, a perfect place to (re-) connect and feel the presence of the other participants.

If, for whatever reason you cannot join or the internet connection is not working, don’t worry. Go to and move to any playlist you like. Find a new playlist below.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me via

Meditation @Home

Saturday Morning 10.30 – 12.00 CET
(please come 15 minutes earlier)
Use to work out times.

Meditate together in your own home. We will use sitting, walking and dancing meditation to move with what is, to quiet the mind, to have a moment of focus. I will guide you through the meditation.

You will need to prepare your space. Make room for movement and a place to sit comfortably. Turn off devices that can distract you. Make sure you can have an uninterrupted meditation. Light a candle, burn some incense. Wear comfortable clothes.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

During these times you may find yourself confronted with all kinds of emotions and feelings. I’d advice you to not sit with them. Find people you can trust and can talk to. If anything, don’t isolate yourself.

If you have questions, concerns or want to talk privately with me.
Please contact me via or call 06- 24501333

Warm wishes, Hester Hudig
