Elleke's journey in yoga and meditation began when she was a child. In her early teenage years, she spontaneously started to meditate, following an inner guideline and set off on the path of yoga. Yoga and meditation became a way of life. For more than 32 years now she has been teaching the ancient form of Raja Yoga with love and passion and for 20 years she has been training yoga teachers. In your daily life at La Borde Blanque lies an invitation and challenge to practice the yoga way of life, each day, every minute.
Originally he is a physiotherapist. In his practice, he came across the borders of what physiotherapy can offer. In search of wider horizons, he specialized in manual therapy and chiropraxy but soon he met new limitations. In 1997, he came in touch with esoteric healing. Within this field, he still experiences inner growth, through which the possibilities of treatment reach beyond borders. He completed the teacher training in esoteric healing. For more than 10 years, he has trained people who intend to help themselves and others to find an inner balance through esoteric healing.
During her training as a spiritual/energetic therapist from 2003 to 2005, Nynke became aware that her horses flawlessly mirror how she deals with her energy. By this she means the subtle life energy: the field that connects body-emotions-mind-soul. Through their guidance, she became aware of imbalances within herself. Her training provided her with tools to create more balance. This principle has since become the basis of her working method as an equine-assisted coach.

"Perfect little time out, dedicated and experienced hosts"
I enjoyed the stay at La Borde Blanque quite a lot, because the host Elleke, her husband Peter and their two friendly dogs made you feel very welcomed and were passionate for helping. The house is situated in a beautiful yet remote piece of nature where you can have nice views and stargazing, and enjoy fresh water of their own source that even comes out of the shower, so my skin felt great. The cook Marianne prepared just lovely plantbased food with optional french cheese and egg in it, being inspired by the kitchen of Indonesia, India, Mexiko or France, for example. There was plenty of food and tea. As for the program, I especially enjoyed the hike in the fairytale-like woods at New Year's. The yoga/meditation room is just gorgeous with a very inspiring atmosphere. Every morning meditation ended with a sharing session in which Peter and Elleke showed their professionality and their long-term experience in working with human beings and their inner insights which was fascinating to take part.
