Ayurveda is seen as the oldest medical and health system that was developed some five to six thousand years ago. It is a holistic system originating from India and means: knowledge (veda) of life (ayus).

The 3 doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha made up of the five elements ether, air, fire, water and earth play an important role in Ayurveda. Everything, people, seasons, ages can be described in terms of these 3 bio-energies.

Make the test now to know what your division is between vata, pitta and kapha: http://fascinerend.nl/ayurveda/uw-constitutiebepaling. If you are going to participate in this retreat, forward your outcome to: info@hanskloosterman.com.

In Ayurveda, absence of disease does not mean that you are healthy. Health means that the three doshas Vata (ether air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water earth) are in balance, the excretions are good, the mind is calm and balanced, the tissues function normally.

What can you expect?

The starting point of the weekend is to bring the four elements back into balance, stillness, depth relaxation, energy building, insight, knowledge and wisdom. In addition to individual inner vision, there is also room for sharing and connecting with each other if you wish.

During this Ayurvedic Weekend retreat, different yoga techniques and mindfulness meditations are combined to add depth to yourself and to experience how both reinforce each other in operation. You will become acquainted with a mix of hatha yoga, Tibetan yoga, Chi Kong, mindfulness, meditation and breathing exercises. The retreat is for both beginners and advanced.

At this retreat there is a choice of different Ayurvedic massages:

Ayuvedic head massage

Head, neck and shoulders are important energy centers in our body. By accumulating stress, this area can stiffen, which in turn causes other complaints. By the massage technique, by means of pressure points, also called weel marma points, the blockages can be lifted. We use specific head massage oil for this treatment. Duration of treatment: 40 minutes. Costs 40EUR.

Ayuvedic foot massage

With the Vital copper foot dish, with Ghee, and spice paste. Ghee is clarified butter from which the proteins have been removed. It contains no carbohydrates and sugars, and it is lactose free. Ghee is also used in Indian cuisine. The footrest, along with the Ghee, has a relaxing and strengthening effect on the body. The foot massage is part of the Ayurveda; the traditional Indian health theory. The copper in the shell supports the cleaning effect of the massage technique. Duration: 30 minutes. Costs: 35EUR

Abhyanga

This is a total body massage with warm oil, adjusted to your body constitution. The type of oil is determined before the treatment. The body massage technique uses pressure points, also called marma points. This way, blockages in the body can be removed.

Yoga provides...

a healthy and relaxed body, thus paving the way for a deeper inner vision and feeling. We examine and experience our three bodies: the physical body (attitudes), the energetic / emotional body (feeling) and the mental body (thinking). With power, inspiration and connection as a starting point, you learn through yoga and mindfulness exercises to recognize and understand your automatic thinking and behavior patterns. Through the insights during these lessons you are able to better shape your life and to broaden your consciousness. This way you learn to function more effectively, both at home and at work.

Throughout the weekend you can enjoy a nice collection of yoga books and magazines, nature walks, meet inspiring people and you can use the environment for your tranquility. In between, delicious vegetarian meals are prepared.

Meditations

Meditation is done regularly during the retreat. One of the forms of meditation is

Tratak

Tratak is meditation on light. During this meditation you are sitting in front of a traditional Ghee light. This meditation has a purifying effect and makes the concentration deeper. This meditation is also suitable for beginners and will be fully supervised. The light from the Ghee flame is soothing to the eyes. It strengthens your focus and your willpower.

+ Where is the retreat? (Click to expand)

Located on 13 hectares of private land on the heath, De Hoorneboeg is an oasis of tranquility in a central location in the Netherlands.

This country estate is a shared dream of a dozen initiators in the field of personal development. From their own background, they all have the desire to create a place for awareness, connection and development. In 2016, their paths crossed and so the plans were made to transform the current conference center into a country estate where individuals and organizations can go for inspiring team sessions, retreats or training sessions.

A place of serene beauty, where time seems to stand still for a moment. A place so powerful that you always want to return to it to recharge and get inspired time and time again. A place to withdraw from the demanding society in which we live. A place in the middle of nature, right in the heart of the Netherlands.

The farms have been completely renovated on the inside, retaining old elements in the style of "serene simplicity". A combination of contemporary design & vintage. Fully equipped: a brand new kitchen, a sonos installation and underfloor heating.

Outside the estate there are a number of beautiful walking and cycling trips and you can easily reach the Loosdrecht Lakes. On our estate we also have a vegetable garden and cidery.

IN DETAIL: ON THE HEI In the 19th century, Mr. Sinkel (van de Winkel van Sinkel) built two beautiful farms with a view of the heath. These monumental farms have known different destinations and have now been transformed into a retreat and inspiration location. They bear the names Stal and Barn and are connected to each other through a corridor.

At Boerderij Stal you will find a large yoga & meditation room, a large kitchen • Spa with sauna, treatment room and relaxation room • not to mention a wonderful large forest garden on the hillside

On the upper floor: • There are 12 single rooms, each with its own bathroom with shower, toilet and sink.

At Boerderij Schuur you will find a large room (the “heizaal”) with a view over the garden and heath. • Spacious library with seating, fireplace and small kitchen and of course the delightful large forest garden on the hill.

On the upper floor: • There are 7 double rooms, each with its own bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. The farms have been completely renovated on the inside, retaining old elements in the style of "serene simplicity". A combination of contemporary design & vintage. Fully equipped: a brand new kitchen, a sonos installation and underfloor heating.

Food

The chef of the farm-to-table restaurant Bij de Tuinman at the Hoorneboeg provides catering for the locations and in the greenhouse in the vegetable garden.

1 PERSON ROOMS: If you prefer a single room, this is also possible. The number of single rooms are limited, so be quick. All rooms have their own bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. The costs for this are € 60 for the entire retreat.

Car

Every visit to De Hoorneboeg starts with a tranquil drive through a kilometer-long tree-lined avenue along the heath and forest that opens onto the 13-hectare estate. When you arrive at the estate you park in the only parking spot of De Hoorneboeg, between the trees. The rest of the estate is completely car-free and you reach your destination on the country estate by a short walk along ancient paths, through a particularly beautiful and old park forest.

Train

The outdoor location is also easily accessible by public transport. A bus stops at the start of the Hoorneboeglaan. From here it is a nice walk along the heath and forest of about 10 minutes to the country estate. From the NS station in Hilversum you can cycle to De Hoorneboeg in 15 minutes, for example on a public transport bicycle that you can rent very easily there.

Hjet van der Zee 

Henriette van der Zee

In 2004 I started Asana, a center for yoga and massage, and I gladly admit that I have worked the longest with whom I work. One of the reasons is that I am happy to be responsible for the things I do and the choices I make. I do something good, beautiful then! If I do something wrong, I have done it myself and it is up to me to do something with it. I love that. Being responsible for the things you do and creating opportunities to do something with them to learn from. I would like to pass that on by giving yoga and massage.

I have followed various teacher training courses in the field of yoga.
Started at Saswitha in Bilthoven, the Hatha yoga teacher training (4 years).
Then a Poweryoga teacher training (1 year) at YogaMoves, Utrecht and at
Ron van der Post, the dynamic yoga (3 years) plus the one-year master's degree,
in Groningen and Nijmegen.
My first acquaintance with massages was on the advice of my companion who indicated that that would be something that would suit me. I hadn't come up with that idea myself. At Saswitha I started with a basic course and I never stopped. I mainly give Ayurvedic treatments because it contains everything. Especially because it has a preventive effect. Ayurveda is a health science and not a disease theory. That fits with my attitude to life. I have followed a number of training courses with Vaidya Acharya Naveen Gupta, ayurvedic doctor, and worked with him for a period where he did the diagnoses and I did the execution. In addition to being a full-time yoga teacher, I also give treatments from home and at home.
