The retreats will be held in B&B Berkenrode in Rockanje aan Zee. A small group with up to 4 participants will be accommodated in B&B Berkenrode as well. B&B Berkenrode is a cozy villa with 2 guest rooms located in Rockanje.

Blue room

The blue room has a king-sized twin bed. This warm cozy room is decorated with blue and gold fabrics from the country Bhutan which is located in the Himalayas. There are two rattan armchairs with lovely pillows.

Red room

The red room has two single beds that are each under the sloping side of the roof. At night you will see a starlit roof. The atmospheric red wall is adorned with futuristic paintings of horses. The bathroom has a sink, shower and toilet for the two rooms on the ground floor.

Taupe room

If all the other rooms are booked, the Taupe room can be used. This room is equipped with old oak twin beds, a beautiful antique vanity and a private bathroom done in marble.

Yoga room

The yoga room has large glass walls overlooking the gardens.

Your aim is to rediscover the realm of pure potential of the inner self and its spiritual essence. You will focus particularly on the internal aspects of yoga: organ cleansing, tissue pumps, nervous systems, circulation of lymph and blood, releasing psychic knots known as Granthis from Sushumna Nadi and Pranic blockages from the Nadis, and creating hydraulic and pneumatic pressures within the body to create change. All movements are undertaken with inner conscious awareness, promoting a state of integration of the mind and body.

As you practice this inner yoga style, you reconnect with your inner reservoir of energy, vitality, and creativity. You will return to a younger functioning physical and mental state. Iyengar yoga practices are designed to enhance the qualities of rejuvenation and longevity, to correct postural imbalances, and to create vitality and health while promoting the natural abilities of the body to energize and heal, so that it can realize its own amazing potential.

For participants who are undergoing a yoga teacher training, Balance Your Life With Ayurveda also offers you the opportunity to organize and teach a yoga class during the retreat to improve your teaching skills.

    Review by Nathalie Dangreaux from Belgium

    Une super aventure !!!

    PROS Pros: Un accueil chaleureux dans une magnifique maison. Des animaux, une nature omniprésente. Sous la pluie ou avec un grand soleil, nous avons adoré les longues promenades. Notre hôtesse a voulu partager avec nous sa passion pour le yoga et la culture ayurvédique. Un massage, un petit tour au sauna, de grandes conversations autours de plats délicieux, une ambiance à la fois joyeuse et sereine, que demander de plus ? Un weekend chargé en fous rires et émotions, qui nous a permis de recharger nos batteries ! Merci Tanja ! ;-)

    Organizer response: merci beaucoup mes meilleures amies. Tannja

    "Megan and I both have stuck with the clean eating since our weekend with you, though the amount of tea we are both drinking has significantly decreased. I haven’t added anything back into my diet yet to test for an allergy. My skin has been doing really well and I wanted to give it another week to clear up some older spots. We really enjoyed our weekend with you. We both learned a lot that we’ve taken with us. "

    "An ideal place for a relaxing short break or holiday with nature. Loving care, very quiet, very good mattresses in the double bed. Tanja has a lot of knowledge about the health and did a great ayurvedic massage. We had a very relaxing time and would happily return."

    "I had a great time at Tanja's place. The house is lovely and very tidy. The place is next to the forest, dunes and the beach. We had good walks. The yoga practise was very good, the food light and tasty but filling, and the massage relaxing.I had a relaxed feeling when I left the house. Tanja is full of energy and ideas and we had a good laugh. I highly recommend this if you want to run away from your busy environment."

    "I am just back from a yoga retreat at Tanja's. Not only the yoga, massage and Ayuveda medicine made me feel relax, pampered and mindful, the area is also beautiful with amazing woods and beaches for long walks in the wild nature. Tanja's house is beautiful and she is a lovely person with so much to give and share. Thank you Tanja."

    "I can recommend Yoga Avurveda weekend at Tanja wholeheartedly. Tanja has extensive experience with Yoga and Arvurdeva and that is noticeable. She advises in a pleasant and light way on nutrition, breathing and relaxation. Even without major complaints is that for me of great value. I'm conscious again and charged home"

    "Ik wil je nogmaals heel erg hartelijk bedanken voor de fantastische dagen die ik bij je heb gehad. Je warmte, hartelijkheid en gastvrijheid en je persoonlijke betrokkenheid. Het voelde als thuiskomen en of dat ik je al jaren kende. Ook je mooie rustgevende huis met grote bloementuin, dat tegen de duinen aanligt en dat je zo naar het strand kunt wandelen.De yogalessen waren erg fijn. Aangepast aan ieders behoefte en met persoonlijke aanwijzingen en correcties. De lichaam geleide meditatie, de muziekmeditatie waren fantastische ervaringen. De massage was heerlijk en liet mij aarden. De wandelingen door de duinen en met storm langs het strand en dat tussen de buien door en zelfs met zon erbij was echt uitwaaien.Ik kom zeker terug het was fantastisch en je voedingstips pas ik toe doordat je duidelijk uitgelegd hebt waarom het zo beter voor mij is.(Translation:I want to thank you again for the wonderful days I've had with you. For your warmth, cordiality, hospitality and personal commitment. It felt like coming home and as if I knew you for years. You also have a nice relaxing house with a large flower garden amidst the dunes so that you can take a walk to the beach."

    "The Ayurveda Weekend is compact and a high quality retreat. Tanja is an excellent host. She is attentive and make sure that every guest didn't miss anything. On top of that, she is also a great organizer, everything went smoothly and every need (even the strangest one), was catered for in such a positive way.The overall quality- yoga, massage, and Ayurvedic meals, was superb. It is very good to know that everything was lovingly taken care of. The program was adjusted in such a professional and respectful way based on the guests' needs and limitations The nature walk, her expertise in nature and inspiring explanation about the landscape were extra surprises that made this weekend an impeccable experience."

    "In alle opzichten heb ik ontzettend van afgelopen weekend genoten. "

    "Zoiets blijft natuurlijk altijd weer een gok. "

    "Maar dit keer kwam dit weekend precies op het juiste moment!"


    "Bijzonder dat we best veel dingen gemeen hebben."

    "Echt super fijn om eens met iemand anders te kijken naar alle "stroefheden" in m'n lichaam. Als ik zo terugkijk in m'n leven heb ik dat echt nog nooit op deze intensieve manier gedaan. "

    "De combi van massage en yoga is echt super, eerlijk gezegd ook dat nog nooit eerder mee gemaakt. De massage was heerlijk en leek helemaal aan te sluiten op dat moment. "

    "Je hebt me allerlei zeer waardevolle "handvatten" gegeven en daar ben ik heel blij mee. Uit het "grote bos" van yoga-oefeningen heb je er net een aantal uit gehaald, waar ik zelf niet veel mee doe, maar die nu toch een soort sleutel lijken te zijn (kameel, plankhouding en ook het vaker volledig ademen en dan niet te vergeten natuurlijk het staan en de stand van de knieen!)"


    "Wat echt bijzonder is, is dat mijn kaak na dit weekend weer meer in balans staat. Geen gekraak meer, geen pijn! Hoe is het mogelijk na zo'n korte tijd! Je hebt blijkbaar precies de gevoelige snaar weten te raken! "

    "Nogmaals veel dank voor de mooie dagen in Rockanje, de doorgestuurde receptjes, leuke foto's, en je adviezen qua voeding en behandeling. Met een aangepast voedingspatroon (eveneens afgestemd op persoonlijkheidstype, huidige onevenwichten, fysieke en emotionele klachten), waar ik me op dit ogenblik wel heel goed bij voel. Met het masseren met sesam-olie voor het douchen ga ik alvast wel aan de slag!"
