If you are interested in custom made video’s, please feel free to connect with me I’ll be happy to talk about how I can be of any service.
Calm vibes tv was founded by me; Cora Verhagen. It arose from my belief that relaxation is the key to a rich life and a healthy planet.
It sounds almost too simple to be true, but it is.
Relaxation has 3 advantages:
- a relaxed body prevents diseases and resolves existing physical complaints more easily.
- a relaxed mind ensures more creativity, so that you have more pleasure in life.
- in stressful situations, relaxation ensures that you keep your head calm and can make better decisions that help you move forward.
All this together ensures personal prosperity and prosperity at work.
Companies that adhere to a corporate culture for the well-being of their employees are many times more profitable than companies that are governed by harsh, old-fashioned work cultures based on scarcity and fear.
Companies that take relaxation and the well-being of their customers seriously can count on loyal repeat customers. Generating a positive feeling is the most powerful marketing method available.
Which chain reaction do you want to initiate?
Relaxation is not always easy in today’s society. Never before has the number of people suffering from burnout complaints grown so explosively and worldwide many people experience feelings of stress on a daily basis.
An unhealthy situation that puts a heavy burden on our health care system and which sets off negative chain reactions like a row of falling dominoes.
Do you want to grow as a person, as a society or as a company? Then it’s time to take the importance of relaxation seriously.
I try to make this accessible in a simple way via calm vibes tv. Not by letting you meditate for hours, but by simply making beautiful animated videos that have a calming effect on your breathing.
Calm breathing ensures that your nervous system calms all body functions. Oxygen is better transported through your body, your heart rate and blood pressure go down and stress-causing hormones are stopped or reduced.
Just try it out yourself, and follow this animation with your breath:
In this way you calm yourself with the help of images and sound and you will see that negative chain reactions are converted into positive chain reactions. This not only impacts you, but also your loved ones, your friends and your colleagues. Isn’t it great that you can do something so beautiful for yourself and your environment with something so simple?
You can use these videos at times when you experience stress or you can use them preventively for relaxation and to familiarize yourself with the power of your breathing.
With calm vibes tv I develop videos for public areas, waiting areas, business areas, healthcare facilities, wellness centers, retail locations and you can hire me to develop meditation and visualization videos as part of therapy or coaching.
In addition, I organize (online) relaxation sessions in collaboration with various professionals in the field of mental and physical health.
Small disclaimer, calm vibes tv is not a substitute for good coaching, therapy or a practitioner. If you experience obstructive complaints, always take them seriously and seek help from a professional.
Art is a personal act of courage, something one human does, that creates change in another.
Art isn’t only a painting. Art is anything that’s creative, personal and passionate.
And great art resonates with the viewer, not only with the creator.
For years I have been interested in the human psyche and how we can take care of a pleasant life.
The longer I delve into this, the more I discover that it is a holistic story, in which many layers come together. I have shaped my experiences by walking an unusual path.
After studying Advertising and Communication Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, I ended up in healthcare, where I set up a Graphic Studio for people with an intellectual disability. After this I worked for 9 years on the setting up of various activity centers for people with intellectual disabilities, people with psychological problems and people with Non Congenital Brain Damage. I found it very special to see how people, despite their challenges, continued to find the resilience to create meaning in their lives.
In 2013 I started as a communication consultant and designer for small entrepreneurs. Again very special to experience up close what motivates people to do what they do. It also taught me how important a healthy mind and body are to thrive in business and life, and how valuable it is to invest in them.
In addition to my commissioned work, I have found it important in recent years to pay attention to my own creativity. In my case my love for making organic illustrations. I gradually discovered that I could make animations with it that turned out to have a calming effect on many people.
I started researching exactly how this came about and immersed myself in the effect of art on health, heart coherence, energetic knowledge, breathing techniques and how you can use this to strengthen your connection between body and mind.
softness and health
I am still learning daily and am regularly amazed at how far we have become detached in our luxurious Western life from the power of our own body. We are perfectly trained to find solutions for inconveniences outside of ourselves, but learn far too little about how we can take care of a healthy body and mind from the inside.
Relaxation – and being able to find it – plays a crucial role in this. Once I discovered all that relaxation can activate, I could no longer let go of it and I intuitively felt that I want to spread this message further.
Where someone else chooses to help people relax through yoga or mindfulness, my “language” is that of the image. Art has been a fantastic means of healing for centuries and this has now also been scientifically proven.
I love to help others in my own way on their way to more self-love, gentleness and health. Something that is quite a challenge in the current world, for both women and men.
I always make time for nice people. Would you like to meet me to find out if I can help you with my animations or do you see opportunities for collaboration? Call or email me for a warm welcome in my studio in Rotterdam or to set us up a videocall.
