Why a retreat?
Giving yourself time is a valuable gift. You can only really love and connect with others, if you love and connect with yourself. We all intuitively know this. And yet it’s so hard to consciously make time for ourselves, because: daily life. Daily life revolves around you doing things, and it constantly requires your attention. Family-members, colleagues, clients, friends, pets, tasks, to-do lists, expectations, plans, dreams, responsibilities… you know the drill. All humans, everywhere know the drill: the concept of ‘retreating’ is ancient. Staying at a place where food, lodging and restorative techniques such as yoga and mediation are offered, so you have all the time to rest to re-connect with yourself. It’s recommended to take a retreat at least once a year, to help you to live your daily life with a sense of loving self-connection. Good for you, and for the world around you.
I love to create moments where people can connect back to themselves. With the right ingredients, a retreat offers exactly that. Therefore I pick a professional team that makes you feel safe and welcomed, deeply nourishing yoga-classes, a location in the middle of nature, and lodging that’s clean, calm and yet has a warm personal ambiance to it.
I am joining forces with Yin teacher: Jamilla Boyer. She is known for her deep and warm guidance during her classes. Yin poses lead to deep release, exactly what we’re looking for. Jamilla also has an open-minded and warm vibe, so you’ll feel at home around her.

Location is called “Oerboerderij Erve Middelkamp” and located in “de Lutte”, in the east of The Netherlands. Because of its location in the middle of nature, there is no public transport to the farm. Let me know if you wish to offer or join a car ride, so we can coodinate shared rides.
Amanda and her team put together a peaceful and very much enjoyable yoga weekend retreat. Their enthusiasm, kindness and care for details kept on surprising us during the three days we spent together.”
