    I call Reinier the International Man of Mystery. He has had so many worldly experiences that you will easily see this in him from the moment you meet him. Because Reinier is such a well-traveled man, he offers and shares his experience with others in such a dynamic way. He has an undeniable talent for food and wine. Some of the best meals of my life have been prepared by him. He will always bring a party through his music, DJ-ing epic sets. His sweet spirit and funny nature cater to all personalities. Reinier is not only a yoga student but also a good friend of mine that has expanded over the years. We are now leading yoga retreats together. It's an unforgettable experience.

    I was so fortunate to be a part of such a magical gathering in Vashon Island for the Heart Fire Yoga Retreat. Reinier has a true talent for being able to bring strangers together for the weekend and setting the stage for the most comfortable and heavenly experience. I started the weekend only knowing my friend I brought along and left with amazing new friendships and memories. The weekend was filled with perfection from the gourmet meals to each heart-filled yoga session as we were pampered by yoga all weekend. I know Reiner has a passion for bringing people together, as my experience in Vashon was filled every minute of the day with love.

    The Iceland retreat is by far the absolute best way to see and experience Iceland while nourishing your soul. Emily and Reinier put together an incredible itinerary. We started our day with relaxing yoga guided by Emily as well as amazing and healthy food. You can even boil your own eggs in the boiling water coming from the earth. We also visited some of the most spectacular sites I have ever seen, such as waterfalls, simple and beautiful hikes, rainbows galore, the Blue Lagoon, the majestic Icelandic oceanfront, and more. Do not even consider it, just go. You will love it and you will be very well taken care of.

    Iceland in all of its natural beauty exceeded my expectations! The food and people were lovely! Emily and Reinier prepared and guided a journey of this amazing country in a way that was awe-inspiring! I enjoyed the company of every person on this adventure! It could not have been a much perfect retreat!

  • Lesia Aragon

    Last fall, I attended Reinier’s Walla Walla wine and Vinyasa yoga retreat. It was an extraordinary experience. The retreat was at a beautiful estate, Basil Cellars. The location and the grounds were amazing. In the morning and afternoon, by the pool and waterfall, the yoga instructor, Ginger Saunders, led the practice. I love the outdoor yoga, especially in this setting. The food was also outstanding and very creative. My favorite meal was prepared by Reinier. He prepared his famous paella. Reinier was so caring and accommodating to make everyone feel very special. He nurtured an environment of love, fun, and elegance, but most of all, a great kula or community.

  • Donna Pfefer

    The Iceland retreat I participated in the summer of 2015 far exceeded my expectations. From the moment I signed up for the retreat, the organizers, Reinier and Emily, welcomed me with sincere warmth and enthusiasm and responded to my every query in a most knowledgeable and professional fashion. Emily’s daily Vinyasa yoga instruction, coupled with Reinier’s accompanying tunes, elevated my yoga experience to a blissful level. What a way to begin each exciting day of hiking and sightseeing in magical Iceland! The accommodations and tours were meticulously organized and the meals catered to each traveler’s unique dietary needs. The group of people was wonderful and I have formed some friendships that will likely last a lifetime. I will not hesitate to book another retreat with these amazing organizers.

    The 2015 Walla Walla yoga retreat was the loveliest combination of fun, relaxation, and luxury I could have hoped for. Reinier is such a gracious and accommodating host who took wonderful care of us and DJ Drishti rocks the patio dance party! I am so happy I got to experience such a deliciously healthy adventure with Reinier, Ginger, chef Ashley, and everyone else!

  • Aria Shim

    I had the most amazing and relaxing time with Reinier and Leah in Moclips, set amongst the backdrop of the stunning Washington coast. Reinier graciously hosted us in a beautiful home that boasted stunning views, beach access, and serene surroundings. We were treated to an exquisite culinary experience with daily meals made with fresh hand-selected ingredients. We also experienced daily moving and powerful yoga practice sessions and meditation guided by the powerful Leah. Both of our hosts tended to every detail and I felt incredibly spoiled during my stay. I would recommend this retreat for anyone looking for an enjoyable epic dining infused with amazing music and incredible yoga. What a fantastic retreat!
