    • 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. It has a private lakeside beach on the beautiful Lac de Montbel and is on the other sides defined by forest and the river Hers.

    The property has a natural spring and bathes in the peace and serenity of the French countryside. You’ll find them on the border of the Aude and Ariège departments.

      "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." website, edited
