  • Margaretha Van den Broek

    Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, Tyrol, Austria (Hatha Yoga)

    Yogeshvari is de spirituele naam van Margaretha van den Broek. Ze is een internationaal gecertificeerd Hatha yogaleraar, een massage therapeut, en schoonheidsspecialiste. Ze werd geboren in Nederland, maar voor meer dan 15 jaar, reist ze professioneel en persoonlijk over de hele wereld als een echte globetrotter. Ze geeft vreugdevol yogales in vier verschillende talen, waaronder Engels, Italiaans, Nederlands en Duits voor alle niveau's.

This retreat will take place at the Eco Hotel Cristallina in Ticino, Switzerland. Ticino is the Italian-speaking region in the south of Switzerland and is famous for its palm-fringed lakes, the Mediterranean climate, and for its architecture and cuisine.

The hotel is located 356 meters above the sea level and right on the border between the villages of Coglio and Giumaglio in the lower Vallemaggia. It is surrounded by fields and forests that climb nearby mountains just 15 kilometers from Locarno and 10 kilometers from Cevio.

Valle Maggia, the "magic valley", a still predominantly natural landscape that is marked by the traveling river Maggia, characterizes the valley that starts at Lake Maggiore and gives access to the alpine landscape. Fine sandy beaches, wide-scale natural pools, abraded rocks, and massive waterfalls shape the image of this valley where visitors can discover the natural beauty and the ancient traditions still untouched by modern hectic.
