Yoga & Detox Retreat
In this energizing detox week we will focus on a different organ every day. We match the yoga classes, the food, the drinks and a food supplement to the organ we are detoxing that day. This is the perfect retreat if you really want to dive deep into your practice and body.

Full retreat price is for 7 days (6 nights), including accommodation, food and drinks, airport pick-up Bologna Airport, one meditation class and two yoga classes a day.
Marije teaches regularly at several studios in Amsterdam and Den Bosch and has led several Movements Yoga’s Teacher Trainings. She will teach you two classes a day, the morning active yang class and the evening yin yoga classes. The morning classes will be active classes targeting the organ of that day. Working on strength and flexibility at the same time. Expect a vigourating practice suitable for all levels of practice. The more passive evening classes are based on long holds, targeting the connective tissue and meridians of the body. In Chinese medicine internal organs are linked to meridians, through which energy flows. Holding the yoga poses for a longer time, adds a meditative aspect to the practice.
All levels of practicioners and injuries are welcome on this retreat.
We will detox our body in this week with solid vegan food. We don’t have any sugar, dairy, salt, etc. The food is specific for the organ we are dealing with that day. Our chef Ed buys our food locally, from our farmer neighbors as much as we can. He prepares you breakfast, lunch, snacks, fruit and we have soup for dinner. Every day we take a different supplement to support the organ of the day. If you really do not like something or if you are allergic to something, please let us know up front. Every day has a special tea that is beneficial for the organ we are targeting that day. You can have as much tea as you like during the day. In the afternoon we will have a special juice. We don’t have any alcohol or coffee in these weeks.
Detox sounds scary for many people, but this is a very mild detox (not a juice cleanse week). We can ensure you, you won't be hungry during this week. And after a couple of days, you will start to notice the benefits of these nourishing meals.
The daily schedule is more or less as follows:
08.00: Morning yang yoga practice
17.30: Evening yin yoga practice
This schedule might change slightly from day to day.
You'll have plenty of free time to read a book in the hammock, swim in our onsite swimming pool, go for a hike through the beautiful surroundings or enjoy the Italian sun.
The retreat will be set in Vidovina, for more information, see the venues page.
Fly to Bologna Airport and we will pick you up from there. Arrival time doesn't matter, the real program starts the next day.
From Holland you can fly KLM from Amsterdam, or RyanAir or Transavia from Eindhoven.
Be prepared for an energizing week full of yoga, meditation, healthy detox food, kicking back, chilling in sunny Italy! Learn what the Italians mean by ‘il bel far niente’, the beauty of doing nothing.
