  • Aleid Warmelink

    Aleid is a qualified yoga instructor who utilizes her knowledge on evidence-based psychology to gain a wider perspective and approach to healing. She was born and bred in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where she received her master's degree in Psychology in the University of Amsterdam. Her travels have made her more knowledgeable and broadened her knowledge of different cultures and times. She has concentrated on her own blend of yoga, coaching, therapy, and meditation since 2004 when she started her own successful psychological practice called “Personal Radiance.”

The retreat center takes place in the picturesque village of Galilea. It is about 500 meters above sea level located in the Tramuntana Mountain Range, which is declared “Unesco World Heritage” for its natural beauty and unspoiled Mediterranean character. Galilea is about a 30-minute drive away from both the beach and Palma, the capital of Mallorca. The village has a great view of the sea and hiking routes can be found directly behind the house. A personalized retreat on this beautiful island is not necessarily more expensive than an ordinary holiday.

    "We had a really great time at your place. A big thank you for all you did for us! It is so great to meet and spend time with people with open hearts, this is how I felt about you and Doby - it was a wonderful experience. And by the way, I find it very hard to eat out (and even cook) now - Doby set the bar so high! Not to mention going to a yoga class. I prefer to practice the things you taught us and remember the time we meditated together. Thanks for sending these exercise sheets. Will be useful to keep the momentum. Good luck with moving and may you have many visitors at your new place!"

    "I stayed with Aleid and Doby for one week and it was really a great experience that I will never forget. I was at a point in my life where I had to stop and figure out where I was, who I was and where I wanted to continue my way. At Aleid and Doby's place I was able to come to a rest, find the time to connect with myself, with interesting people and with nature. We had amazing yoga and meditation sessions every day. Aleid is a great teacher and she explains not only the techniques of Yoga but also the deeper meaning of every pose and what chakras are balanced in order to heal your body. She showed us simple ways how to include yoga and meditation in the everyday life in order to relax, focus and be prepared for the day. In addition to yoga and meditation I had great personal coaching sessions with Aleid. She is psychologist with a lot of experience in that field. She helped me to identify my issues, make me aware and try to find solutions to sort out possible ways. Aleid gave me a lot of exercises that made me understand and good readings to support my reflections. Apart from the physical and mental exercises, Doby spoiled us with great healthy food. He is an outstanding cook and surprised us every day with some new healthy and delicious meals. Plus, we got massages to relax even more. We also had a lot of time to enjoy nature during walks in the mountains, or just enjoy the beauty of the beaches of Mallorca. The groups normally are not bigger than 3-4 guests which creates a nice and relaxing atmosphere. In my group were amazing people I still have contact with. Aleid and Doby are very warm, relaxed, inspiring, funny and respectful people. It is a pleasure to live with them. I will definitely come back to visit them."

    "My 8 days yoga and meditation retreat with Aleid and Doby was wonderful. I loved the style and philosophy of Aleid's yoga teaching and it was very private as there was only one more guest while I was there. Also, Doby's carefully prepared healthy meal was something to look forward each day! I have so much more to say however mostly, I enjoyed their warm and thoughtful personalities. Strongly recommended to anyone who are searching more in life :-)"

    "After my lovely experience with Aleid and Doby, I can never go to a mainstream yoga retreat again. The retreat was better than anything I could have ever expected. Aleid and Doby had the warmest hearts that I immediately felt as if I was at home. You can feel their genuine generosity and compassion. The energy in their home was constantly positive and encouraging. Aleid provided yoga in an intimate setting, offering one on one coaching. Additionally, her counseling sessions were mind and heart opening. Not only was she completely understanding, but her depth of knowledge was outstanding. Doby made the most delicious meals that I have ever had. He had such a wide range of culinary options and I never left the table hungry!! I requested my meals to be sugar free and gluten free- I never imagined food could taste so delicious and be so clean and healthy! Furthermore, Doby provided an experienced and professional massage. He truly relieved all my tensions which made my retreat 100x more relaxing!! I cannot praise my retreat enough, words can never explain how amazing my experience with them were. This is the best present anyone can treat themselves to... everything was absolutely perfect!!"

    "Experiencing Aleid and Dobys retreat felt just different, more grounded and real spirituality. I didn’t get carried away by some mystical or magical beliefs. You both are more down to earth in your spiritual practices and that made so much more sense to me. I liked the connection of mind and body, because it resonated much more with me and my daily life."

    "What I liked about the week with you and Doby is that everyone is accepted and welcomed and that you are not dogmatic about a lifestyle, yoga or spiritual beliefs. I found your yoga style and the explanations very interesting and enriching. I also came to you with the idea to do the counseling sessions. In my expectations these were pretty disconnected from spirituality until then. Weirdly enough that I perceive psychology and spirituality as two separate things, which I just realize while writing to you. In my friends and colleagues I never see a good integration of both, because its either therapy or yoga/spirituality. Therefore, I really liked that you so easily integrate these worlds in your practice. Seeing and experiencing that combination of a theoretical/scientific background and yoga/spiritual practice was very inspiring for me, because I often feel that especially in “conventional” psychotherapy schools something is missing. "

    "I now return home and have the actual feeling of valuable experiences that translate into my life. I feel way more grounded, learned more about me and feel it was the right place to be for me. I still think a lot about our yoga and counseling sessions and I actually take a lot of ideas with me to find a more fulfilled life."

    "So I am very thankful for this new experience."

    "I just thought about what I consider “spiritual” in my life. I guess everyone has his or her own ideas and meanings about it. So to me spirituality is being and living a grateful life, trusting that good things will happen to me and trusting that I meet the right people in the right time; being able to ask for guidance when I need it; to believe in the power of the universe and that the universe guides and protects me; I believe in healing energies, light, love and colors; I believe that we are all connected and that we can all learn from each other. There is probably much more that I have left out…"

    "Another question arises within me: Was the retreat a spiritual experience for me? – I can clearly say: YES! I enjoyed your retreat very much and you both made it an exceptional personal and spiritual experience for me. Spiritual in a way I can relate to and understand it and feel like growing in my development and continuing on my path. Spirituality is more an inside feeling and growth of me and not so dependent on other people or outside influences. I feel that a lot is going on already and do think the retreat was transformational – to what extend I cannot say yet, but I will definitely face some of the topics and patterns we discussed. I also realize that my sense of spirituality changed a lot in the past years. "

    "Nothing was too much trouble they went out of their way to ensure we all had the most relaxing and personalised retreat possible. The food was delicious and the yoga and coaching were transformative and restoring. The views were so stunning and it was the perfect place to rest and restore. They also included a day of sailing and a meal out in the local village which made the trip very memorable. One of the best weeks of my life. Such a lovely couple."

    "We were able to spend a wonderful yoga retreat with the psychologist and yoga teacher Aleid Warmelink. Aleid is very professional and warm person ! With the yoga sessions and deeply relaxing massages of Doby we have reached in a short time a soothing state of relaxation. The vegetarian food was excellent, first class quality! Thank you for this magical experience !"

    "The retreat was exactly what I needed it, when I needed it. The location is beautiful and the room and common areas lovely and homely. The coaching sessions with Aleid refreshed me for my challenging Chief Executive role and two weeks post-retreat, I’m still feeling the change and have operated differently since returning. Aleid has a spiritual energy about her which comes through in her yoga sessions and my practice deepened as a result of the sessions with her. I enjoyed Doby’s juices but even more so, the food he cooked was delicious! Whilst there I had several massages from Martine who is amazing! There was an accepting quality about the space which encouraged me to stay true to my own process. I would visit again and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a flexible, supportive, safe and loving environment in which to take some space for themselves."

    "My partner and I had gone through a very challenging period in our relationship, and we decided to dedicate a week to relationship repair, discussion, and therapy. We wanted to find a retreat that could also include yoga, as we felt that body alignment would assist with aligning our minds and healing our hearts. "

    ""

    "We did a yoga and couples therapy retreat, which included all our meals, plus a set number of yoga sessions and therapy sessions. We filled out an extensive biographical intake form before arriving, and in this way, we were able to “hit the ground running” in the therapy sessions, without needing to spend the first few sessions recounting our history and background details. Upon arrival we were made to feel completely at home with Aleid and Doby. They are extremely warm and welcoming, and also give you freedom to go off and do as you please with your free time. One of the best aspects of the retreat is the food!! Delicious, fresh, healthy, and different everyday -- thanks Doby!"

    ""

    "We really connected with Aleid, who we felt gave us an incredible amount of warmth and focused attention. She also gave us real tools to help us talk to each other, understand each other, and develop empathy for each other. We were very dedicated to our relationship repair work during that week, so we diligently completed the homework assignments Aleid gave to us. These we ended up using in interesting ways during the therapy. Ultimately Aleid was able to provide us with the tools to learn new and insightful things about each other, our childhoods, our triggers, and how best to work through these topics and remain emotionally connected to each other. We are very grateful for this work she is doing, and feel that she is a true talent. This ability of Aleid’s combined with the daily yoga, and incredible food, made it a week we will never forget."

    "Within 2 weeks I have made a lot of progress but I will continue to move forward using the techniques you taught me. I really want to thank you for giving me support for my return to where I live as well, recommendations for further treatment and singing options, yoga options, giving me inspiration for my future, to take this experience and use it. Because of you I can look forward a lot more. Aleid and Doby, you made my stay so pleasant, I felt safe and secure. Thank you for doing so and being so welcoming, I haven't felt that way in a while. The food was amazing, and so were the massages. Thank you for receiving my mother so lovingly as well. I have a lot more to say and a lot more I am thankful for (like the long conversations, going on walks with Hearty, the opportunity to call you whenever), but for now I'll say I hope to see you again. I will certainly return here! Thank you, Love Mattie"

    "I just wanted to write and say what a wonderful time we had at Aleid Warmelink. Alied and Doby are such warm, welcoming and nurturing people. We felt completely at home and comfortable in their care. The food was absolutely delicious, natural, health and home-cooked with love. The house is beautiful, clean, peaceful and comes with breathtaking views. They even lit a log fire to keep us cozy at night. The yoga classes were very well done, extremely personal and very educational. Previously I had attended a couple of group classes at home and never really understood what I was supposed to be doing. Alied breaks down the postures and builds up to them in a way that you find your body is able to achieve so much more than you would have thought possible. This will be hugely valuable as i continue to practice yoga. We also had a Shiatsu massage which was very personalised and really focused on treating specific issues and pain. We hope to return again and hope other customers will find this review helpful...."

    "As I arrived to a beautiful sunset view and sat down to a delicious healthy meal with the warm and welcoming hosts Aleid and Doby, I knew I was in the right place. When dark chocolate was offered and the stars lit up the very dark and silent night in Galiea I felt deeply blessed that I’d found exactly the retreat that I was looking for. Drawing from many therapeutic modalities enables Aleid to tune in quickly to what works best for you and she has a talent for combining yoga with coaching to gain deeper insights and accelerated progress and healing. This in combination with some silence and solitude while immersed in beautiful nature is truly powerful and i found the experience deeply replenishing. Doby is an excellent chef and the morning smoothies were nourishing and delicious too. Their company was relaxing, easy and charming. If you are looking for an escape from the world so you can reconnect with yourself, I highly recommend Aleid and Doby’s retreats."

    "Aleid, I don't think these words can begin expressing my gratitude to you and Doby. You have given me a light that cannot be put into words, because it is a spirit that fills me. I will never forget you -as a person or a teacher. You have given my life a renewal and a sense of well-being. My time here was one of the best experiences I've had in my journey of self discovery during the past five years. I came to detox my body. But so much more occurred. I feel like I've detoxed my mind and my soul as well. The accommodations were great. Quiet and peaceful, warm and comfortable, like having my own little apartment with a private outside space and a magnificent view. The juices were made very personalized and delicious, attention given to combinations and what Aleid felt my body needed. In fact after my first bite of food, I realized how much I missed the juices! Doing yoga with Aleid is oh my gosh! -such an experience, made my practice so meaningful. And during five years I've been doing yoga, she showed me how to really correct my poses. The 2 sessions with Aleid have given me new perspectives on the past. The hiking, meditative dancing and trip to the Spa were added delights that contributed to such a beautiful experience. I leave with love in my heart for you. A bientot et bisons-karen"

    "Thank you so much for your kind and supportive hospitality during my stay. I found the retreat helpful, insightful, and restorative. And believe this was in a big way because it is run by generous and passionate people who work so well as a team! I loved Doby's delicious morning smoothies, so much so I continued to have them when at my parents place in Soller. I found the yoga really helpful, especially the focus on breathing and have continued (so far) some of these practices. I also appreciated the more therapeutic aspects of the retreat, even though this is the part I find more challenging. Now I have had an opportunity to settle back into home life, I have spent some time reflecting on what I would like to do going forward regarding my healing journey. I feel drawn to return to Mallorca to embrace a deeper and longer retreat, and I would very much like to have your support and guidance during this time."

    "Yoga lessons with Aleid are very nice with a personal approach. She has a pleasant voice and appearance. There is room to reflect on your feelings , serious deepening and transformation, but also humour and air. She puts exercises that are appropriate in a nice pace, and makes a good alternation between exercise, relaxation and meditation. She also gives a lot of additional information that she draws from her rich source of knowledge about the physical body, the emotional being, the energy body and the psyche, stemming from different schools and philosophies of western and eastern origin. The classes are open to beginners and advanced yoga practitioners. She gives several options so everyone can join in and she is non-judgmental, precise and caring in her guidance and corrections. She has quick insight in where you could deepen your practice and gives you personal advice."

    "My week with Aleid and Doby has really been perfect - and just what I needed. I came from a very socially, mentally, and physically demanding job and had become exhausted. Too drained and tired to remember where my zest for life has disappeared to. One week later and I am leaving with a new kind of excitement and a deep happiness. Doby makes the most delicious juices everyday, so you never get bored of the same old tastes and yoga sessions with Aleid have been eye opening. She is extremely supportive and really personalises each session. I also can’t forget Hearty, their lovely dog, who makes a wonderful walking companion through the village and the hills of Galilea. Doby and Aleid, I can’t thank you enough. I will definitely be back."

    "I came to Aleid and Doby needing to grow to avoid burnout. Aleid’s multi-faceted approach, Doby’s fabulous food, and the opportunity to stay in a wonderful home, brought growth and rest. We uncovered beliefs that have caged me, found practical ideas that I am growing into, and did slow yoga to rediscover physical and emotional depth that I find solace in. A safe environment where I could be angry, laugh, be upset and run up and down mountains complemented this. I am pleased I found this space and pleasantly surprised that such is possible. Thank you."

    "In september ben ik 10 dagen bij Doby en Aleid geweest. Ik had dat eigenlijk veel eerder moeten doen. Aleid is zeer kundig in haar werk, zowel haar yoga- en meditatielessen als de uren coaching die ik heb gevolgd waren heel fijn. Ik ben naar huis gegaan met meer inzicht, veel handvatten en oefeningen om mezelf nog beter te gaan voelen. Doby kan heerlijk koken en het is een magische plek in de bergen van Mallorca. Zeker een aanrader als je tijd voor jezelf nodig hebt maar ook heel leuk om trips te maken in de omgeving."
