In the yoga classes we go together in search of the deepening of our inner world. By means of meditation and a variety of accessible yoga postures, we influence our emotional, mental, and physical layers. We come to ourselves and from there we grow again. There is space to be created to dig deeper to be able to breathe, space between the many thoughts in our heads and space and at different places in the body, causing more softness arises from tense parts of the body.

We would like to share the experience of Celine ball, yogateacher . She was in 2018 for the first time with us for a yogatreat:
Frankly I had no high hopes for because I also had already been heard from other teachers that it can be a very tiring experience. In addition, we would sleep in tents at temperatures that could go to freezing point at night. The cold and I are not a good match.
Through the years I’ve changed hard. I No langer fear of failure a bad experience. I try every time to look at what a situation can teach me. If it would be a bad experience, I would at least learn something from.
The opposite was true. I had a fantastic experience. A group that was very open in which everyone could be themselves, every day hours of sunshine on your face, beautiful starry skies and delicious freshly prepared food. Between teaching I added some to my preparations for class or I read a book in peace between the dunes. I notice how the desert brought me a deep rest and how wonderful it is when I am just myself.
The last three days I realized again what a huge lucky lady I am. Then and there I decided that I want to do this more often. For others and for myself. I also found an ally on the trip.
