The Yoga

You will be gently taken into a deepening practice of (Partner) yoga postures, meditation and pranayama. It does not matter if you are a beginner or advanced student, there is enough personal attention as we keep our groups small.

We will do quite a bit of PartnerYoga too, which is a great way of easing into the postures with the gentle support, or weight, of your partner. Often done in mirror-wise or complementing asanas, we both enjoy a little stronger stretch with more ease. We can tune into each others rhythm of breath and take that minimal movement as a nourishing massage.

THE MASSAGE

Most of the afternoon will be dedicated to the art and pleasure of massage, both in giving and receiving. Under the competent guidance of Tara and Inti, you will be introduced to different styles of massage.

Among others Thai Massage which is also aptly called Thai Yoga Massage, as it involves many stretches that resemble (partner) yoga postures. When done well it gives the masseur/masseuse just as much of a stretch as the receiving partner.

INTRODUCING YOUR HOSTS AND YOGA TEACHERS…

Hi, We are Tara and Inti, and we are passionate about yoga and creating sacred space together and with others!

We always take our time to do yoga and massage together and teach for many years in Spain, India and Holland.

Our approach to living a wonderful life together is making enough time for each other through yoga, mantra singing evenings and massage as well as being in nature. We embrace our vibrant life together and wish the same for everyone.

    The thing that makes this yoga retreat stand out amongst others is the special warm and relaxed atmosphere that Tara is able to create as well in the team as in our the group. Tara i think you are amazingly diverse yoga teacher a great masseuse, but most importantly a very warm radiant and easy going person. I enjoyed the morning and evening yoga sessions and i did learn a lot and became more flexible during this week. My state of mind was effected very positively by doing the meditation. The other great thing during the stay was that you were very flexible and the schedules could be rearranged according to all our voices. We even made a walk to a fall and dipped in the water. All of us guests and crew became like one big family this week . Amanda being always the happy Mother feeding us wonderful raw food dishes I've ever seen. Adam was sharing all his knowledge with us ,giving us invaluable information on nutrition. Besides very good company of course. Last but not least Claudia's raw chocolate workshop and Sarah with her ability to coordinate , help, prepare anywhere necessary . In short it was one of the nicest retreats I've ever went to . I want to thank you all for this beautiful memory that will last a life time. Francine Punt 15-05-2015

    Dear Tara, Thank you so much for a wonderful, relaxing retreat. I enjoyed the food, the yoga and the people. Raw food has not been a major focus until now, but Sam, Pam and Amanda are the magicians in the kitchen. I enjoyed every bit of food that was on our plates - nourishing me so greatly. I am very keen on continuing a big part of it and I'm really inspired by the variety of the raw food. The yoga practice was kind, gentle and very self-focusing. I was just at the right place, at the right time. And I am more than grateful for this experience. I learned a lot about myself, and I am happy to continue my journey towards a self-aware and self-conscious life. When it comes to the people, it is super how we all connect together in just one retreat. I found it the most wonderful collection of people I can imagine. We shared and laughed so much. Even younger and older women connecting so greatly is not easy, but we made it a truly memorable experience and we will keep this in our hearts forever. Thank you so much for providing this time and space. Your effort is truly remarkable. Love and peace, Simone 20-05-2015
