This four day retreat in the beautiful Peel region, on the border between

Limburg and Brabant, in The Netherlands,
is an invitation to surrender to a quiet practice of meditation, sharing,
yoga, systemic work and inspirational breathwork.
We aim to come together with a relatively small group of like minded people.
Some of us are certifiedbreathwork facilitators, others are regular breathers
and yet others may be totally new to the practice of consciously connected

breath work. No matter what your level ofexperience is, y

ou are very welcome to join
and bring your own unique self to this journey.

Where will it take place?

Our home for this weekend will be the former convent, called Amatisse,

situated in the south of The Netherlands.
The facilities include a very cozy kitchen, a light and spacious session hall
and comfortable bed rooms. Shower and toilet facilities are shared. 
Coffee and tea making facilities and a big fridge
are available in the kitchen, so you are welcome to bring your own preferred
snacks and drinks.

What will we do?

Our program has been carefully put together in order to offer all participants a safe and optimum space

to relax, wind down and turn inward. The activities we planned aim to provide a balance between spending time alone and connecting with others. The beautiful and quiet natural surroundings will help us to ground and will provide the bedding from which we can safely set off on an inner journey.

Yoga Sessions
The yoga sessions will be done under the guidance of Nathalie Gerardts.
Nathalie is a passionate yoga teacher, coach and trainer, with more than
20 years experience, both at home and abroad.
Her lessons are a perfect balance between gentle power, and powerful
gentleness and accessible for every one.
Nathalie’s yin classes are meditative in nature, and inspire empowerment
based on non-action, just observing what is.

Inspirational Breathwork Sessions
Inspirational Breathwork is a form of ‘Conscious Connected Breathwork.
What this means is that we use our breath in a certain way in order to reach
a level of awareness where we can open ourselves up to healing on a physical,
mental and spiritual level. Sessions typically last about an hour and are done
lying down, with the help and guidance of trained facilitators.
