Retreat location

Beautifully situated in an area called Gaasperplas, Ilma Yoga House offers serene surroundings. Gaasperplas is an artificial lake used for recreational purposes South-East of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. It was the setting for the 1982 Floriade landscape and flower show, and the Eastern end of the lake is surrounded by parks and woodlands that once formed part of the event.

The lake hosts a sailing club, canoe, windsurfing and dragon boat facilities, is popular with anglers, and has a sheltered public beach on the south shore. One of Amsterdams principle campsites is located in the area. It is not connected to the navigable canals system, and has a prohibition against the use of motorized boats; these two factors contribute towards a good water quality and abundance of wildlife. A public slipway is available for non-motorized pleasure and fishing craft.

One of Amsterdam's metro lines (53) terminates at the station of the same name located near the north shore of the lake. Surrounding the the Gaasperplas area are Amsterdam, and the nearby villages of Abcoude and Weesp, AMC medical center, Ziggo Dome and the Amsterdam Arena. You can rent bikes to visit these nearby lovely little towns and countryside.
