    You will stay at a beautiful coaster which is rebuilt to be a yogaboat and is named Andere Boeg. The boat is rebuilt totally sustainable and is the most sustainable passengers ship in Europe. This ship is 55 meter long and more than 7 meter width and has lovely light, silence yoga studio, 11 comfortable cabins with top-quality mattresses.

    This ship also has a beautifully designed bar, a modern kitchen, nicely decorated living room, comfortable bathrooms, and two spacious decks. With the powerful energy of the water, yet firm and impressively stable as the earth (practicing headstands, trees or any other balancing poses will not be more difficult than on the shore.

    This yoga weekend offers yoga lessons that form a challenge for advanced yogis and are also well doable for beginners. Everybody practices the yoga taking into account the (im)possibilities of his or her body. You will notice that by doing the exercises and poses, you become stronger and more flexible, but you do not need to be strong or flexible to start yoga or to join the weekend. Above all, it is about relaxing deeply this weekend: let go of all the stress and tension, further and further, until only pure relaxation remains.

    Enjoy all the peace and the nourishing organic, vegetarian and primarily delicious meals. Enjoy the silence in the light yoga hall or chat with your fellow guests in the nicely decorated living room and enjoy the view a bit higher above the water. Next to the program, there is sufficient time to have a nice relaxing walk, take a nice little extra bit of sleep or relax in your own way. Also the program is not compulsory, you can choose to participate or to relax in any other way.

    • Marloes van der Kamp

      Certified teacher with more than 10 years of experience. I have been interested in yoga, personal and spiritual development since I was young. The renovation of Andere Boeg brought me enormous deepening and taught me how to be confident and how to surrender. Being confident and trusting the life that gives you what is needed. Even if it's difficult. Meditation is part of my life, and that is also what I would like to give to my students. To encourage them to not only meditate in the weekend, separate from daily life, but to achieve more that that; to integrate meditation in their daily lives.

    The location of this retreat is at the spacious ship Andere Boeg, mostly moored in Wageningen, a beautiful location in nature; with wetlands, the river Rhine, a botanical garden and a forest at walking distance. Sometimes the ship will be moored in Gorinchem or Nijmegen, also with nice river views and chances to have a nice walk. All places is well reachable by public transport and car. From Amsterdam Center, it is around one hour by car or one and a half hour by public transport. But the beauty of this place is definitely worth the trip.

      Andere Boeg is a very welcoming and beautiful place with professional yoga lessons and meditations

      CONS Cons: Nothing negative in this weekend for me, I will come back and tell friends about this. I enjoyed every minute.

      PROS Pros: The surrounding area is really nice. We did a lot of outside yoga; at the banks of the river, in the water meadows and in a splendid botanical garden on top of a hill. Marloes is a great yoga & meditation teacher; she explains clearly, corrects my poses if necessary and adapts to every level. The ship is really big and it is lovely. Cozy cabins and a yoga studio which is peaceful and quiet. The food was very healthy and divers.

      Review by Zireen Chaudhry from United Kingdom

      Yogaboat

      PROS Pros: The whole experience was very pleasant from initially booking the trip. Marloes approach was in a very relaxed and non judgemental way. There was no pressure to push myself or my body or even my mind which I really appreciated as was looking for some downtime for myself. The boat was beautiful as was the cat and the yoga space within the boat was very special too. The food prepared was very healthy, colourful and tasteful too which Marloes partner helped with. Marloes and her partner were able to create a balanced and comfortable environment together which was very nice to be around. I hope to return one day!

      Organizer response: Jantine booked a private cabin for a weekend, for € 447,-. After this review, I changed the price for a weekend with a stay in a private cabin to € 350,-. The mooring place is a city harbor, which Jantine thought not very inspiring. There are splendid views in the neighborhood of the ship though, in one minute walk you are in the water-side meadows, but unfortunately Jantine could not enjoy this because she could not walk easily.

      "I had a wonderful time with Andere Boeg. I arrived at Andere Boeg after a very stressful period and I needed to take a rest. Marloes and all the staff were very kind and caring. The boat is beautiful and there is a big room for yoga and the other activities. The food is organic and delicious, the place is very quite and relaxing; during the day we had meditation and yoga sessions, and in my free time I walked along the river, in the woods and explored the countryside. This simple life helped me to find my serenity again. Everything was really of high quality. Thank you Andere Boeg for everything! Greetings from Italy"

    • Review by Mandy Burgers from The Netherlands

      "Ik heb onwijs genoten van het yogaweekend bij Marloes en Teus op het schip! De sfeer was heel veilig en ontspannen en de yoga- en meditatielessen inspirerend en toegankelijk voor alle niveaus. Marloes is een super ervaren en deskundige docent met oog voor iedereens beperkingen en uitdagingen. Daarnaast zorgde Teus voor fantastische maaltijden. Dit alles met een open geest, een goede portie humor en de wijsheid en warmte van kat Tijger. Het weekend heeft me een hoop rust gegeven en handvatten voor het dagelijkse leven. Daarnaast ook hele leuke, warme en lieve mensen leren kennen. Ik kom zeker nog een keer terug!"

      "Marloes en Teunis zijn echt super leuk! Ik heb genoten van ieder moment op jullie boot! Niks was te veel of te weinig. De sfeer was warm en huiselijk en de groep was daarbij ook een hele fijne bijdrage. Het eten was erg lekker, de meditaties professioneel en verrassend. Het geluk was dat we een stukje gingen varen, wat echt een cadeautje opzich was. Alles bij elkaar maakte het voor mij een perfect weekendje met ontspannende yoga! Bedankt!"

      "First of all, Marloes and Teus are wonderful people, they really know how to welcome the guests and make them feel relaxed and yet focused on those small things that matter."

      "Me and my girlfriend, we enjoyed a calm weekend, we had experienced a new(new for us) type of meditation: sound meditation."

      "Also we have improved our flexibility and the ability to maintain the focus longer and concentrate more on the ‘now’. For example, on our way back to Brussels, by car, we didn’t feel the need to listen to music while driving, we just wanted to ‘be’ and drive, with no hurry :)"

    • Review by Sarah and Pamela

      "If you are looking for a weekend to unwind with a combination of yoga, meditation and drinking tea on a beautiful boat, I very much recommend joining Marloes! Besides yoga sessions that are tailored to individual levels and needs as well as different forms of meditation, there is time to connect with fellow yogis, enjoy the surrounding area and spent time looking out over the water. Very relaxing!"

    • Review by Kim

      "What a lovely weekend! During the yoga practice, Marloes had a lot of attention for everyone’s constraints, due to which I could also practice the poses in my own way. The meditations were very well guided and therefore really nice. Also meals and snacks were lovely and well taken care of."

      "The ship is impressive, beautiful and clean and Teus and Marloes create a warm atmosphere, which makes you feel at home. By this combination, I have had a lovely weekend, with great teachings that I could take home :)."

    • Review by Emmy Hagenaars from Netherlands

      "I really loved this Yoga relax weekend at Andere Boeg. My body is not 100% fit and Marloes adapted perfectly to that by giving me adjusted poses. I have experience with a large number of yoga teachers, and Marloes is one of the very few who is capable to exactly see what your body can do. She notices whether you do a pose well or not (and so, if you do not injure yourself), and if you do not, she explains what goes wrong and what you should be different or what alternative pose you can do. I also liked to see what amazing things others can do with their body (like Crow and Scorpio) and that still, Marloes could challenge them also with advanced poses. Now after the yoga weekend I have practiced for a few weeks at home and I notice my body becomes more fit and I can even do some poses that I could not do yet at the weekend, I am so happy with that. "

      "The food is delicious, Teus is a very creative cook. The accommodation is great and the view from the yoga room over the water surface is really special. The only negative point I can think of is that the cabins are a bit small, but of course that is part of the beauty of a ship. I gave this weekend to myself as a present. This yoga weekend was the first weekend I was away from home after the birth of my youngest son (almost 3 years) and I have slept wonderfully, 2 nights 10 hours straight; that was also a great contribution to the relaxation :). I think the schedule of the weekend is an excellent mix of activity and rest. Highly recommended; I will definitely be back!"

      "I really enjoyed this great weekend retreat and I've already told others about it. Marloes excellently adjusted the yoga classes to the level and abilities of the different participants. I loved the balance between yoga and meditation. It is clear Marloes has put a lot of thought into the weekends and it shows - very nice, relaxing, and lovely! "

      "Moreover, the accommodation is lovely and the food is delicious. I definitely recommend Andere Boeg to you - - I hope you are able to go!"

    • Review by Hester

      "A while ago I did this weekend. It was a lovely relaxing weekend. Nicely adjusted yoga, deep relaxation in the meditations and I went home completely relaxed, recharged and full of inspiration. The boat is a fantastic place, the surroundings are gorgeous to hike and Marloes is a warm woman and a skilled teacher. Teus is a great cook and Tijgertje is a real Zen-cat."

    • Review by Jacq from The Netherlands

      "Deze week heeft mij meer gebracht dan ik ooit had kunnen hopen. Ik ben een redelijk aards type. Mijn voornaamste reden was oud en nieuw doorkomen (voor het eerst alleen) en wat ontspanning met meditaties en yoga. Maar het werd veel veer dan dat. Ik heb, dankzij deze week en de ontzettend fijne begeleiding, echt een volgende stap gezet in het loslaten en mijn reis naar zelfontdekking. En ook heel belangrijk, ik heb geen moment het idee gehad dat ik me verantwoordelijk zou moeten voelen voor het groepsproces. Dat zegt veel over jullie kwaliteiten. Ik heb me veilig gevoeld, kwetsbaar maar ook moedig. Dank jullie daarvoor!"

    • Review by Peter from The Netherlands

      "Als wijsheid en emoties onbetaald zijn dan zou de retraite onbetaalbaar moeten zijn en dat ook nog eens met klasse restaurant eten en warme professionele begeleiding en indrukwekkend gevarieerd programma op een luxe boot en heerlijk in de natuur. Een aanrader voor iedereen."

    • Review by Lisette from The Netherlands

      "Ik kijk met bijzonder warme gevoelens terug naar de oud- en nieuw retraite. Het volledig jezelf mogen zijn en je kwetsbaar mogen opstellen is bijzonder fijn. De boot en de lieve eigenaren Marloes en Teus zorgen voor een gevoel van een warm bad. Het is goed om in onze hectische wereld de ruimte te nemen om even weer terug te keren naar jezelf en je hart te voelen. Mijn hart is nog niet geheel geopend maar mijn proces daar naartoe is in gang gezet en dat voelt bijzonder goed. Steeds vaker mag ik voelen dat wat mijn hart mij zegt goed is. Je leest of hoort ‘m vaker, maar het is echt zo, ’volg je hart want dat klopt’. Dank je wel voor deze mooie ervaringen! Ik ben ook dankbaar voor de mooie contacten die ik er aan over heb gehouden. Ik kom graag nog een keertje terug!"

      "Andere boeg is een Heerlijke rustige plek waar ik met deze retraite letterlijk van oud naar nieuw ben gegaan. Door jullie mooie werkwijzen de boeg methode heb ik mijn innerlijke strijd van 33 jaar los gelaten en mezelf compleet terug gevonden. Jullie plek is geweldig en jullie zijn aanwezig als 2 warme en liefdevolle mensen. Alles wat ik nodig heb was aanwezig om volledig in vertrouwen te kunnen zijn! Ik ben enorm dankbaar dat ik jullie en jullie mooi plek heb ontdekt mede dankzij jullie zijn meerdere wensen nu uitgekomen. Onwijs bedankt voor deze transformerende retraite ik voel me een nieuw mens. En blijf zeker terug komen."

    • Review by Sobai from The Netherlands

      "De dagen met Oud en Nieuw vlogen voorbij, de inzichten, de stilte, de meditatie waren geweldig, en de begeleiding helemaal super. Loslaten en het nieuwe verwelkomen dat is wat het was, en dat was mooier als ik mezelf van te voren had ingebeeld. het eten was geweldig en de veiligheid binnen de groep was prachtig om te ervaren. Teus en Marloes twee toppers en de Boot is van alle gemakken voorzien, het slapen in een vier persoonshout was prima, hele leuke lieve waardevolle contacten overgehouden aan deze dagen."
