We'll start every morning with a 2-hour yoga class by Marije. This can be yin yoga, vinyasa flow, hatha or even pilates. Marije's classes are precise and personal. She likes to help everyone where ever needed and adjusts people to better their alignment. Her classes are technical, with her broad knowledge of the human anatomy expect to learn a thing or two about your body. With these classes we will work on flexibility but also on strength.
Marije teaches regularly at several studios in Amsterdam and Den Bosch. She has taught the Anatomy Module at Movements Yoga’s Teacher Training.
All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome to this retreat and we will take your injuries into account.
Foodness' Claartje will organize a daily food workshop that will take approximately 2 hours. We will use whatever veggies we can find at our neighbours gardens, but we will also cook aryuvedic with you one day. We intend to make a lot of healthy and good food together with you and maybe teach you a thing or two. Most important, we will eat all together on the terrace in the sun overlooking the Italian countryside. We will certainly use the wood oven of the house to make your our own pizzas! Or we drive to a nearby organic winemaker, who shows us (and lets us taste!) his products. The pasta maestra of the restaurant down the road will teach us how to make our own fresh pasta! Also good to know: we can take all kinds of food allergies and special diets into account.
This retreat will be held at 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 to 'prende due piccione con una fava' (achieve two things in a single action) by learning about yoga ánd food in sunny Italy! (Literally it translates as 'kill two pigeons with one stone'. We will not kill any pigeons during this retreat, but we'll definitely do a pigeon pose!)
