May Yoga Retreat!

We’re very excited about our yoga retreat from May 25 – 28th and hope you will join us!

Recharge and relax with twice daily yoga classes, meditation and chanting, fresh air, delicious food, special workshops, great people and plenty of free time to be social or introspective as you’d like. We’ll be surrounded by pristine nature at a peaceful and simple retreat house in the Betuwe, just one hour by train from Amsterdam. Everyone is welcome!

We’re honored and excited to announce that the renowned tabla player Sandip Bhattacharya and the beautiful mantra singer Buvana will be joining us! These wonderful musicians will perform a concert and offer us a workshop during our retreat…you can hear samples of their music below.
