Open your heart

We will focus on the heart this midweek. The heart is central. We are in the head too much and live less and less from the heart. We are going to open the heart and remove blockages on the heart chakra. This way you can fully enjoy

keep yourself and make the optimal connection with the other person out of free will and love it just as much. Then there is no duality but wholeness and then you live from the heart in unity, love, light, freedom and joy.

The beautiful virtues such as love, compassion, passion, natural kindness and joy live in the heart. We are going to work on a good balance between belly, heart and head. Learn to make contact with the silence and softness of the heart. The heart distributes the energy to the lower 3 chakras and the upper 3 chakras

How are we going to do that?

• Yoga, Chi Kong and Taoist physical exercises aimed at opening the heart.
• Meditations and mindfulness exercises to activate and increase the heart qualities / virtues, the so-called 4 transcendent virtues from Tibetan Buddhism.
• Dance the heart sutra dance.
• To treat the Prajna paramita, the wisdom of the heart, the heart sutra of the Buddha. Form is emptiness and emptiness is form. Sing the mantra that comes with it.
• Hridaya mantra + mudra to surrender to the deep level of consciousness present in the heart.
• Pranayama / breathing exercises to balance the abdomen, heart and head, as well as transformational breathing to remove blockages in the heart.
• Communicate from the heart: practice open dialogue from the heart, learn to communicate non-violently.

Yoga takes care of...

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.

During the entire midweek 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.

Number of participants

The minimum number of participants in this retreat is 8, the maximum is 30.

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


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. It provides relaxation, relieves pain, and promotes the production of oxytocin (hug hormone), and serotonin (happiness hormone). Duration: 60 minutes. Cost: 60EUR.

Rebalancing & coaching

"On the massage table the quality of the touch is paramount. It is full of contact and with attention to what is there, without having to do anything directly with it. This supports you to get deeper into the experience you feel, you go more feeling instead of thinking. This creates awareness and insight into your emotional life and associated patterns. "
