Being a Woman and Beyond, Spring Retreat

During our week together we dive into the essence of our being with an intimate group of women. We get to recognize, explore and celebrate what it means to be a woman on a quest of self-awareness and well-being. Through the practice of Yoga, Meditation and Self Inquiry we learn to tap into our inner wisdom. We will use the ancient wisdom of the 10 cosmic powers, the wisdom read more

 Goddesses represented in the tantric yoga tradition, to connect with your unique qualities.

Some parts of the retreat will be in silence, in order to deepen the inward connection. This is an opportunity to help you reconnect with your personal strengths and resources, with the pure joy of being present, right here, right now.

The physical part of the practice will be gentle and accessible yet deep and profound, helping to strengthen, stretch and purify our system as well as creating a great bridge between the mindfulness practices and our daily life. We will work with yoga, meditation, breath work, embodiment and sacred feminine practices that will bring you home in your intrinsic goodness and great feminine Essence. Your experienced teachers, Esmé Ritstier and Ingrid Svasti Goudsmit, will make sure that all participants get the care and guidance needed.

During this retreat we partially incorporate the teachings of Hridaya Yoga. Hridaya is the Sanskrit name for the Spiritual Heart. Hridaya offers a deeply transformative practice which is accessible to all, whether you are a complete beginner or advanced yogi. Its main purpose is to enhance the connection back to the intuitive Self – the Spiritual Heart.

Our Heart is the gateway into our true essence, into the joy and beauty of being truly alive.
During our week together we use different yoga, self-inquiry and meditation techniques to help us reconnect with our Heart, with that deeper truth within that guides us to come back home to our true Self, our natural joy, vitality and sense of purpose.

The full price for this event is € 795,- per person. This includes the cost for accommodation, food and course fee for the teachers.

Park with its stunning nature and historic villages, a swim in the Adriatic sea and our own swimming pool.

We get into the practice of mindfulness in its different forms, combined with hatha yoga and other relaxation and meditation practices.
