Pranic Healing

Interesting experience

I have tried a pranic healing session during an event / festival. I was intreagued by the concept, and the healers were very warm and welcoming. I was pregnant at the time, so they advised against sending too much energy my way. I did not know what to expect, and frankly, I didn't expect much. But, I could actually feel energy running through my body. To such a degree it made me feel light-headed. Quite amazing. I felt very calm and energized afterwards. I have spoken to many people who swear by the healing effects of pranic healing sessions, who come back for more. Really! The healers were accepting donations, without expecting high pay. I am open to doing more sessions in the future, great people!

Frecious Green Shakes

Delicious juices

We had a box of Frecious juices delivered to our home, hoping to save some time on making fresh juices ourselves, and save ourselves the mess! All flavors are delicious, celery must be my favorite...The bottles are cute (though I could slam about four at one sitting ;-) I like the packaging and the info about calories. The delivery was speedy, and they were all delivered frozen to our door. They are very handy to keep in the freezer, and simply pull out and set in the fridge in the evening. Instant fresh juice awaiting you in the morning. Overall, they are a bit pricey, but so our fresh juices in any shop. Juicing at home also is not cheap, and takes time, and lots of cleaning. Clearly, you pay for quality, so worth it!

Golden Temple

Yummy Pizza

I love the atmosphere at Golden Temple, the decor is simple and relaxing. I really enjoy sitting at the table by the window to enjoy the view outside. The staff is nice. Great vegetarian pizza and nice selection of teas. Great raw fruit tart.

Vitamin Store

all the supplements you need

Great location and friendly staff, cute colorful shop. I was getting my prenatal vitamins and fish oil here. The lady working there, expat I think, was interesting to talk to about the difference in quality of various vitamin brands, and advised me what types to avoid. Too bad it got too busy in the shop to finish our conversation.

Hempworks

High quality stuff

I have a few pieces of clothing Hempworks and I love the quality. Cute beach style shorts and a summer dress are my favorites. In the case of hemp clothing, you get what you pay for, so expect the clothing not to come at a cheap price. That said, you will get more usage, and hemp is better for the environment. I dream of getting a set: the Hemp Hoodlamb jacket and a Russian style furry hat!

Borstvoedingcentrum

The breastfeeding hub of Amsterdam

This shop has everything on offer for breastfeeding. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and sadly just missed the "Expess Club" where you are welcome to test various breast pumps. That said, we were welcomed by one of the staff ladies who invited us to the back, where she explained all different devices. We were allowed to take our time and check our a few breatfeeding pumps. They range from €50 for a hand held Philips, all the way to €290 for a double bottle electric pump. Not cheap! A good pump is certainly a big investment. 

The shop has a variety of breastfeeding bras, of which many with a "beugel" - our kraamzorg told us to not get those as they can harm the breastfeeding process, but we didnt have too much time to learn more as the shop was closing at 3pm. 

Overall, we got great attention and help, and left the shop with a hand held of our own. The shop allows you to rent some of the pumps to try at home, which is pretty handy. But, you need to purchase your own bottle and a few pieces (for hygiene's sake) so renting doesn't come cheap either. 

There were mainly daddys visiting the shop that day, which makes sense. The mommys are probably at home with the little ones. 

One thing I learned after doing some research at home, is that Agis Gezinnen polis reimburses up to €75 for an electric breastpump! We did not know that going in, and we probably would have purchased an electric pump having that knwoledge ;-)

Asahi Sports

Good fitness stuff

I always thought that this shop offers only martial arts gear, but after stopping by recently, I found a nice selection of fitness and pilates equipment as well. The staff seems knowledgable, and were friendly and helpful. The prices seem reasonable for the quality...

Float Oasis

Let your worries float away...

I had one session at Float Oasis and I really enjoyed it! The space is super modern and nice, and the lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. I liked the floating experience, and the thickness of the water. It was new to me, and I think I was a bit distracted by everything to fully relax, but I was told it is this way the first time. I also heard that women take longer to realax, as we have so much going on in our heads, lol. I was a bit worried that i would fall asleep, but that did not happen. I am looking forward to my next session, hopefully I will be able to fully relax this time. I was not really sure how to rate the "social experience" above, as its not a very social activity. I would recommend floating to anyone.

David Lloyd Sports & Healthclubs

Its mommy time :)

I signed up to David Lloyd because I wanted to loose the "baby weight" after giving birth to my baby girl. Its just across the park from my house. I love the fact that they have a creche with such lovely girls caring for the kids. My daughter enjoys it a lot, though she can stand only 1,5h before I get called to pick her up. Still, enough time for me to get a good workout, and have a few moments for myself.
