Instructors 3

Elleke Van Kraalingen

Elleke's experience in yoga and meditation began when she was a child. During her early teenage years, she spontaneously started to meditate following an inner guideline of mystical experiences and set off on the path of yoga. Yoga and meditation became a way of life and a source of inner wisdom and love, from which sprang the aspiration to guide others on the way to their own source of love, joy, and inner wisdom.

Pieter Hiemstra

Originally he is a physiotherapist. In his practice, he came across the borders of which 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. More than 10 years he trains people, who intend to help themselves and others to find an inner balance through Esoteric healing.

Imre

Imre is Raja yoga teacher and cultural anthropologist. For her, life is a continuous process of personal growth. Yoga and meditation have helped her on her path of self-realisation, to connect with herself and open her heart. Today, she is very passionate about guiding people on their path of yoga and personal development. She loves to connect with people from all over the world to build together towards a more sustainable, empowered and loving world.

    The region is magical and the nature beautiful.

    The yoga space is excellent : beautiful light, and high quality yoga equipment.

    If help needed, the owners are very often available !

    There are beautiful walks around very cute villages.

    All classes are optional.

    Long moments of meditation in the morning.

    The overall atmosphere is quite "heavy" and somewhat individualistic for people wanting a real yoga vacation. Many people seem to have important issues and are using the retreat as an opportunity to sort out their problems.

    95% of participants are Dutch which can be quite surprising for a French retreat.

    There is only 30 minutes (or less if the classes run late) to eat breakfast ; an hour for lunch and dinner. As a vacation retreat, I believe breakfast, lunch and dinner moments are very important and should invite participants to take as much time as needed.

    Dinner is at 6.30 P.M. which is very early considering lunch time is at 1 and not part of the French culture

    Yoga classes and instructions, in my opinions were very limited and not tailored to participants needs.

    Windows in the rooms did not open.

    - prachtige yogazaal

    - goede catering

    - de ruimte (fysiek en mentaal) die Elleke en Pieter bieden

    - de wandelingen

    - het meer

    -

    - de tussendoortjes waren zoetigheden: ik zou hartige dingen lekkerder vinden, zeker aan het einde van de middag, net voor de yoga

    La Borde Blanque est un lieu de sérénité en contact direct avec une nature luxuriante et le lac de Montbel à proximité.

    La nourriture est de qualité Bio et très variée, quant aux chambres, elles sont spacieuses et confortables.

    L'accueil de Peter est très efficace et convivial. Quant aux enseignements d'Elleke dans le Yoga, la méditation et la philosophie avec les textes Sanskrit sont juste parfaits, tout en douceur. humilité et ouverture du coeur.

    Un grand merci à Elleke et Peter pour tout ces moments privilégiés.

    We had an amazing time at La Borde Blanque. I really enjoyed the yoga, delicious food, beautiful house and surroundings and company of host and other guests. My daughter enjoyed playing with the other children and enjoyed the kids yoga and activities. We also enjoyed spending time at the lake and river, visiting the puppies and grooming the ponies. We hope to return next year it was a very relaxing holiday. Thank you Elleke and Pieter and your daughters and Marianna the cook.

    Die Yoga und Meditationssessions wurden sehr gut angeleitet. Der Raum war sehr schön. Auch das Haus und die Lage sind sehr schön. Da es sehr heiß war, war zudem der Privatstrand am See toll. Das Wasser ist sehr sauber und man kann hier gut auch längere Strecken schwimmen. Zur Abkühlung gibt es auch einen Fluß unterhalb des Hauses. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Essen ist auch wirklich sehr gut und gesund und auch immer genug. Wir hatten eine wiklich tolle Zeit, haben sehr nette und interessante Leute kennengelernt und viel Inspiration zur Meditation und Yoga erhalten.

    A beautiful experience feeling relaxed in a loving peaceful environment. The walks were all excellent and lead by the family dogs! Yoga was very complimentary to the walks and felt perfect for me.

    I kept eating too much because the food was so good!

    Most of all I liked the approach and attitude of the instructor (guru). Yoga classes as well as meditation and yoga theory were presented in a very interesting, peaceful open minded way. Morning sessions lasted for 3 hours and I had never felt bored or tired.

    I spent 10 days in La Borde Blanque doing the intensive Raja Yoga training. It truly was an amazing experience. Elleke is a wonderful, passionate, knowledgable, experienced and compassionate teacher. The house lends itself perfectly and Elleke's family made us feel welcome, and could not do enough to suit all our needs. The food is all freshly prepared daily with the best ingredients, with no shortage. I have implemented what I have learnt from Elleke into my yoga classes and the feed back from my students is all so positive. I will definitely return next year to further my training. Thank you Elleke, Pieter and your beautiful daughters. Karen :)

    I’ve been in La Borde Blanque in September for a Yoga Retreat, and I liked it very much, the location, the surroundings, the people and the yoga sessions! Just the transfer to the place isn’t so easy, but Elleke and Peter do their best to find a solution for every single person.
