How would you feel when you would have a grounded trust in yourself, in life, and in your heart?

How would it be to invite joy, inspiration and authenticity in every thing you do?


When ease, flow and expansion are the foundation of your daily life?


In this Online Intensive - Opening to Essence you are going to explore how you can create your life in a way that feels in resonance with your heart. You are going to learn how to connect to a more truthful place inside yourself and let inspiration be the foundation for your every day. 

Do you see yourself working very hard? Pushing yourself? Or hiding yourself?
Do you have a longing for more spark, more meaning and more colour in your life?

YOU can give life its spark back. You are the way.
But not by working harder, oh no!
Your life will unfold when you let it.

Let your essence guide you.










Flow is your natural state

In this Online Intensive, you will learn practical, accessible and integrative tools to relax into life and move towards expansion in intimacy with yourself. Bodywork, breathwork, Core Energetic tools, meditation and deeper inquiry will form a foundation to open up to life, to embrace your being and to navigate yourself in this world in a more honest, congruent and authentic way.

You can make a change
--> 'mweh' and 'pfff' do not need to be your start of the day

--> stress and tension are not a healthy foundation for life

--> worrying and pushing are not the way towards your dream goal.

When you move from your essence, life is effortless. We often say, we are ‘in the flow’.

There is an unlimited source of energy and life force within you. It’s the home coming on this earth, it’s the yes you feel when you're on the right track, it’s that what gives life meaning.

Your essence has a very simple way to communicate with you.

When you move from a place that is not in resonance with your core, you feel it. You feel ‘off’, tired, overwhelmed, numb, or even desperate. Life needs effort. When you need to ‘push or pull’ life, you know one thing: you’re rowing against the stream.

Life is here for you

and you don’t have to row against the stream.

To bring out your true joy, inspiration and trust, we will take four steps:

1. Embody your energy and being

2. Explore your blockages to living fully

3. Energize the shadow and releasing your attachment to the negative

4. Open to your essence with trust and surrender

You will open to your full potential, coming from your essence.
The work you will do, will form a nourishing and sustainable ground for the rest of your life.


Are you ready?

"It was wonderful to experience how much I enjoyed the bodywork and breathwork. After a practice, I felt more grounded and connected to myself. I loved Aranka's way of working. She is very professional, warm and personal." - Meie


"Aranka sets a safe environment in which we discover these questions and answers together, while always feeling welcome and supported. I am learning how to feel more 'awake', how to better recognize what feels authentic to me and how to be in line with my own emotions. Altogether, working with Aranka is the greatest present I ever allowed myself"

- Anne-Sophie


Aranka de Vries

"I am in awe of our intelligent human bodies, and it is my passion to invite myself and others to express the truth our our magnificent selves. I light up when I move, when I express myself and when I see that the bodywork helps others to do the same. My strength is in inviting you in my own playful and spontaneous way. I cheer for you, stepping into your truth.

I am a Core Energetic student practitioner, dancer, body- and breath coach with the experience of working with the body for over 10 years. I have a deep trust in doing inner work in a collectively, and am ready to support you on your journey. 

My own process is one of feeling part of a bigger whole, of being able to ask for support, and to learn to trust that when I am myself, I can feel received and met.

In this Intensive it is my intention to be open to receive, honest and speak from my heart. It is my intention to honour each participant for who he/she is and support the process with love and faith.


I am excited to walk this path with you.

Let's walk together.
