Self Love and Self Care for Wellbeing
July 8, 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CEST
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
― Audre Lorde
A note from the facilitator, Tendai Angela Jambga-Rokkones:
I believe that Self care is not only luxurious or indulgent but it is also a necessity. To me self care means inner engineering and sustainability of self.
How we are able to govern our beings, our bodies, minds, and souls in order to become powerful conduits to achieve and sustain the lives we dream of?
There are a plethora of tools in the field of Yoga, Ayurveda and Wellbeing and I am going to teach you a few of those tools as we delve into the philosophy and the science behind them. These tools will not only impact you but also your community, society and each person you come into contact with in your daily life.
As well as a look into yogic philosophy and practical tools to apply, this session will include a 45 minute guided body scan and chakra meditation.

Tendai is a Zimbabwean born 200hr certified yoga teacher living in Trondheim, Norway; her journey into yoga began in 2003. This culminated to her work in Zimbabwe where she led workshops, classes, discussions’ and programs for diplomatic agencies, children’s homes, a film for Fashion Revolution, Tamba Africa Circus, TEDXHarare, women’s groups and her community.
Tendai believes that yoga is embodied on and off the mat as a lifestyle that is accessible to any one and by using the tools yoga prescribes one can lead a fulfilled life. Drawing from the teachings of the sutras by Patanjali, Yogananda, BKS Iyengar, David Frawley and the Bhagavad Gita Tendai weaves in ancient wisdom, self inquiry, subtle body anatomy and modern scientific research into her vinyasa, yin and yoga nidra classes that have been described by students as ‘deeply inspiring, nourishing and emotional’, ‘returning home to your self with clarity’ and ‘not simply a class but an experience that explores the whole; body, mind and soul’.
