  • 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.

This retreat will take place in Midi-Pyrenees, France. The area has a long and moving history. Amongst other things, you will find prehistoric caves with carvings and stalactites and stalagmites. Apart from that, the Celts also left their traces, as well as the Romans with their thermal baths.

La Borde Blanque is an authentic French country estate situated on the crest of a hill with a magnificent view over the Pyrenees and surrounding countryside. The location offers various opportunities to be together as well as to withdraw for some private space, both indoors and outdoors.

    Review by Anne Paul from Germany

    PROS Pros: 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.

    PROS Pros: 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’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."
