During the yoga days you will do the same asanas each day. This way your body becomes familiar with the poses. Although the poses are the same, every day your experience will be different. Eveline and Sanne will focus on one Vijnana principle each day. This way you get to know many aspects of each pose on the five days. The practice becomes deeper and you will understand better what your body and mind are doing. It becomes more a practice of your own, from the inside, pleasant and stable. Vijnana yoga makes your body strong and your mind focused. The silence of the desert helps you to achieve this.

Eveline Torres, is teaching the classes and does the readings in the evening. Sanne Kerkhof assists her and brings her knowledge of restorative yoga into the afternoon classes. Both teachers have a Vijnana yoga background. In this retreat we practice from inside, a Vijnana tradition. Breath exercises are important and we move from the center on the rhythm of breath. The practice is led by the seven principles of Vijnana yoga.

This retreat takes place in the wondrous country of Morocco, specifically in the mystic Sahara desert.

Food that will be served in this retreat will be vegetarian and made from fresh ingredients.

While this retreat will fill up your senses with meaningful yoga activities you may find yourself with plenty of time to simply reflect, relax and enjoy the pleasure of doing nothing but enjoying the beauty of nature and the silence of it all as well.

    "For me, the retreat to Menorca meant a great possibility to deepen and improve my practice and, above all, to start and build my own practice to apply at home. The retreat was at the really beautiful place with delicious, nutritious food. The opportunity to deepen my practice was helped a lot by the great way Eveline teaches. Sharing experiences with the group gave me the strength to challenge myself. The combination of all those elements; the magnificent, powerful nature."

    "I am new in the world of yoga, but that didnt stop me from During the retreat everyone could practice on his or her own level. So I could improve myself starting from my own yoga practice. For me the trip to Menorca was something really important. I got new focus and a fresh mind."

    "The retreat made me strong, in many different ways. The retreat to Menorca was really special for me because it was very profound. The series of asanas helped me to further the development of my own practice. I started yoga a few years ago. The past years I went to different schools. At Samana, I became aware of the power of Vijnana yoga.During the retreat we went back to basic with delicious, healthy food. There was a nice rhythm with plenty of time for meditation. This helped me to really make a connection with deep processes that I previously could not reach. This body-mind connection was the most important thing for me. This is something Ive taken home and continuously apply in my daily life."
