We invite you to a different lecture: This is about you!
A life without loneliness, anxiety, stress - is it even possible?
Discover how to live a life that actually feels good on the inside, not one that only looks good on the outside. Meet world-renowned yogi, lecturer, and meditation master Balakhilya das - travelling around the world to give lectures on the ancient yet highly relevant wisdom of yoga. In a warm yet authorative manner, Balakhilya das helps people to resolve conflicts and to find true and lasting happiness.
This may just change your life!
Here you will have a chance to enjoy delicious and traditional Christmas food, meet new friends, and experience a relaxing concert - all in a warm and genuine Christmas atmosphere :)
Meditation is an effective way of calming the mind so that you can relax. You can also practice it to handle difficult situations and stress. When you find your inner room of lasting peace and happiness, you will also develop a true understanding of your own life and the challenges you are going through.
Mantra's are spiritual sounds, used by yogis for thousands of years for self-realization. By meditating on these sounds we can find a place far away from stress and concern, and gain deep spiritual insight and inner happiness. Come and try a powerful and soothing form of meditation when we play and sing mantra sounds together!
Practicing yoga exercises increases flexibility, strengthens muscles, cleanses the body's internal systems, calms the mind and reduces stress. We gradually progress from simple to more challenging positions in your own pace. In this way, we find harmony between the body and the breath. These classes are suitable for all levels, and include deep relaxation and breathing exercises.
How can the lessons from yoga philosophy help me in my life? How can I live a life that feels good on the inside, not just looks good on the outside?
The ancient yoga wisdom provides answers to our deepest questions, in a way that satisfies the heart. These evenings are for those who want to see the real causes of various personal and social problems that we face in everyday life.
This is a retreat for those of you who want to experience all the benefits of following the meditation and yoga lifestyle! We will practice simple meditation techniques, breathing exercises, yoga exercises and guided deep relaxation. We also arrange daily sessions with live music meditation, which can be both a calming and fun experience. All accompanied by delicious vegetarian food and a warm, caring atmosphere :)

RELAX TO ANCIENT YOGA SOUNDS
Mantra, transcendental sounds, are very powerful. They free us from worries and help us cultivate true love in our hearts. Surrounding ourselves with these spiritual sounds has a very positive effect on us - it clears away and frees us from our anxieties and warms our hearts. Almost every Sunday we meditate with mantra music by singing and sharing these ancient sounds. Come and sing with us, or just listen if you want to. After the meeting, there is always time for snacks, tea and opportunity to chat with like-minded people :)
STRENGTH - BALANCE - RELAXATION
Relax in body and mind with yoga exercises! We teach yoga centered around postures or asanas that aim to bring harmony between the body and the breath. Asanas and Pranayama (breathing exercises) open the subtle energy channels in your body, so that you can experience the life force within your body. During this 2-hour session, our yoga teacher Ruben takes you through a warm-up of breathing exercises and soft movements, and continues with a more physical part where you get to increase the energy flow in your body. The class is rounded off with soothing asanas and a guided deep relaxation. Ruben takes inspiration from yoga retreats all over the world, blending elements of ashtanga and power yoga into a flowing, breath-focused yoga style.
