The retreat center is next to Aleid’s home, where she lives with her husband Doby, who is a great vegetarian chef. The rooms are offered only as a service for people who do yoga and therapeutic sessions, there are no other guests not attending a program. There are one large double room and two normal double rooms, all with their own bathroom. This retreat is open all year round, ask for the first available dates.

You will have private use of a double room unless you bring a friend or family member. There is one extra single room only used for last minute emergencies. Aleid and Doby live on a separate floor. In the exotic garden and under the roof of the veranda, you can relax on sunbeds or puffs or take a hammock to where you want.

For the yoga classes, mats and meditation pillows are provided. The yoga has a maximum of five participants and they are given outdoors when possible. From April to October, you can be sure to enjoy outdoor yoga. In January, March, November, and December, yoga classes mix outdoor and indoor instruction.

As soon as the sun is out, Aleid uses an outdoor coaching "office," which is available most of the year. For a donation fee, you can also use the three bicycles and the infrared sauna. Your hosts will try to find a balance between connecting and private space for them and for you.

You will have quite some time for yourself to rest. You are welcome to bring your own books, movies, or music. You can also use the house's collection. Your hosts like to share what they have, so if you need a specific thing, tool, fire pot, paint, or clay, do ask.

During this retreat, you will have daily sessions, except on arrival and departure day. The program will take up half of your days. Planning can be adjusted to your needs. During your stay, you will get four individual sessions of your choice, which can be Reiki, massage, relaxation, meditation, breathwork, or coaching. If you rent a car, you will have time to see more of the island.

Short walks in the hiking routes of the Tramuntana mountain range are included or can be discussed if you would like to visit the neighboring villages or the sea.

  • 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.”

  • Doby van den Berg

    Doby comes from a family with a curiosity towards many different cultures, especially culinary culture and music. He started helping his mother in the kitchen from a young age and never stopped liking the process of preparing world food and the joy of eating together. Doby trained as a cabinet maker first to allow him to live and work anywhere in the world and building beautiful kitchens was a favorite. After going trough cancer, Doby took up healthy, tasty cooking as a new profession and loves it.

This retreat will take place in Cala Figuera, Spain. There are walking and cycling paths from the house along the coast and into the typical Mediterranean backlands with forests, flowers, olive, and fruit trees. The house is on the outer ring of the beautiful, natural, small fishing harbor.

Just one street down, you will see the ever changing light on the water and the typical Mallorquin white fishing boats, the llauts. You will also see the fishermen work on their nets and sell their catch every afternoon. There is a small boulevard with a cliff and sea view restaurants nearby.

Further down, you will find a few shops, a mini market, a cash machine, diving, kayak, and SUP and boat tours. Just beyond the harbor is Parque Natural Mondrago, a large area with protected forest landscape, cliffs, and two stunning white beaches. You will see they resemble the Caribbean, with turquoise waters.

In warm months, you may head out early to do yoga on the beach. Nearby, you will also find Santanyi, one of the bigger villages with more services, including a small hospital, post office, galleries, nice shops, two big supermarkets, cafés, and restaurants, some of them with weekly live music.

From Cala Figuera you can also visit wonderful places, including Coves de Drac, Cabrera Island, Randa Monastery, and Monasterio de San Salvador. There are also famous beaches where you can relax and take in the sun, including the famous Es Trench Beach.

    Cala Figuera

    CONS Cons: Nichts!!

    PROS Pros: Die individuelle und liebevolle Betreuung durch die Gastgeber Aleid&Doby und ihre Bereitschaft auf meine Bedürfnisse einzugehen. Ich habe keine grosse Yogaerfahrung, und konnte trotzdem maximal profitieren. Es war ein erholsamer und ernergisierender Aufenthalt, in einer kleinen Gruppe von nur 3 Gästen.

    Review by Philippa Frankl from Great Britain

    Lovely, relaxing retreat

    PROS Pros: Doby and Aleid are just delightful, such genuine, lovely people. They open their home to a small number of guests and treat everyone like family. The food is fabulous, the yoga classes are excellent and pitched so everyone of any ability gets the right level of challenge and attention from Aleid for their level - however experienced or inexperienced they may be. Bike rides/walks to local beaches just round of the whole experience.

    Organizer response: Thank you for your very nice words, Philippa. Being a bit puzzled by your ratings, I would like to use this answer for some extra information for others too. We are nothing fancy....we specialise in people who need rest to recuperate health, personal care and small group work. I can imagine we are hard to give any rating because we work so personalised. The costs you pay are slightly higher than cheap because we can have only 3-4 guests at the time to garantee the right attention. We consider ourselves a home, not a hotel. On the other hand in most yoga retreats rooms are only single person for extra costs if at all possible. With us everybody has their own room and communal terrace and garden space. The rooms are not standardised. We buy food for your personal needs, serving everything ourselves without personel, fresh from the market and mostly organic. We have small yoga groups so no high energy group-work or guru-ism. Our airport driver is a musician we like to support, not a more expensive official taxi. And we have no large pool as we are next to the sea! (small pool in summer). We don't wish to offer large pool, daily change of towels, dry cleaning, aircondition etc as we work with organic products and sustanable tourism as much as possible. So this means we are not offering unnecesary luxuries, but we do offer our bicycles, a (low energy) infra red sauna, snorkels, beach mats, creative materials, maps etc....and all our time and effort for this space is what we love creating. Very welcome! warmly Aleid

    "This retreat was everything I could have hoped for and more. A life changing experience that gave me the space to relax and recharge, as well as the resources and connection to evaluate my direction in life and rejuvenate my spirit. From daily yoga practice, and one-on-one coaching sessions with Aleid, to incredible, clean vegetarian meals, and reiki/massage from Doby, these two wonderful individuals ensured that I had every opportunity to treat my mind, body, and soul with the best possible care. I was able to heal, and grow, relax, and enjoy every last moment of my time here, and am beyond grateful for the experience."

    "Having never been to a yoga retreat (or anything like that) before, and being fairly new to yoga, I approached my week with Aleid and Doby with some trepidation. My husband, who had never done any yoga or meditation before, also voiced why we hadn’t booked a week by a pool instead. Well, we had nothing to be worried about. We had the most wonderful time and came home feeling refreshed in both mind and body. Aleid is excellent at creating the right experience for everyone, no matter what your skill level is. We both felt more supple and centred and with a determination and energy to continue what our retreat week had kick started. For those also looking for some guidance on where life is taking you, or where you would like it to take you, I can’t think of a better place to start that process. By the end of the week, we also felt nutritionally balanced and Doby’s wonderful cooking has left us with a new interest in creating lovely vegetarian dishes for ourselves. A week with Aleid and Doby is like being safely wrapped in a warm blanket and we are looking forward to going back again."

    "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 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 a 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 no bigger than three to four guests, which creates a nice and relaxing atmosphere. In my group there 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 eight-day 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, I mostly enjoyed their warm and thoughtful personalities. Strongly recommended to anyone who are searching more in life."

    "Nothing was too much trouble, they went out of their way to ensure we all had the most relaxing and personalized 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."

    "Mon séjour s’est divinement bien passé. Aleid et Doby sont d’une extrême gentillesse, chaleureux, à l’écoute et bienveillants. Cette semaine m’a apporté la sérénité dont j’avais besoin. Cela m’a permis de découvrir le yoga; activité totalement nouvelle pour moi. De part mon manque d’activité physique et de souplesse, cela a nécessité une adaptation des cours. Aleid a su me mettre en confiance et faire en sorte que cela me soit bénéfique. La combinaison du yoga, des massages et du reiki est excellente. De surcroit, la cuisine végétarienne de Doby vaut le détour! Je ne pensais pas autant apprécier ce concept. Un grand merci à tous les deux pour cette semaine inoubliable. "

    "Voor ons was het de bedoeling om onbevangen te gaan genieten van yoga en gezonde voeding en lekker verwend worden. De yoga sessies van Aleid bracht echter veel meer dan verwacht. We kregen alle persoonlijke aandacht, de verdieping van assana's, meditatie en de ademhalingsoefeningen waren een eye opener. Nog zoveel extra's die we nooit verwacht hadden. Daarnaast hebben we dagelijks genoten van overheerlijke maaltijden bereidt door Doby én niet te vergeten, de overheerlijke massages. Met een rugzak vol energie en uitdagingen gingen we weer naar huis. Wat een geweldige week met heerlijk eten, vrijheid en prachtig gezelschap en welkom gevoel. Thank you so much!"

    "Hello dear ones, "

    ""

    "It has been over a month since I flew back home after our lovely week together. Here is my over due review..."

    ""

    "I spent a week with Aleid and Doby at their therapeutic yoga retreat, and wow, am I ever glad I did. I have been home over a month and not a day goes by that I don't think of these two lovely human beings. "

    "The retreat space is lovely, airy, wild, and beautiful. As a team they are warm, welcoming, thoughtful, insightful, and kind. They both managed to see us (I was there with a few lovely women who I have kept in touch with and adore) all as the individuals we are - whether it was how I like my coffee (Doby's coffee is wonderful) or what I would most benefit from in my productive and insightful sessions with Aleid. Additionally, they were able to maintain a remarkable presence with each of us honoring all our different needs. The yoga was outside and nourishing for us all. Aleid managed to meet each of our individual asana practices from beginner to experienced yogi. We all left class open and gently challenged. Doby made wonderful food for us to share that took everyone's needs into thought. Sitting around a table with them was like being with my dearest people; I felt so seen and accepted right where I was (which was exhausted at the beginning of the week and expansive and rested at the end). "

    "This was truly divine week, I would highly recommend paying a visit to these two lovely people. Anyone craving solitude or connection, quiet, evolution, opening, peace, and a break from every day responsibilities needs to look no further. They have a rare gem of a retreat center. "

    "Thank you so much for that wonderful stay! I enjoyed your warm and welcoming home, the stunning nature around Cala Figuera and the excellent cooking by Doby. The Reiki- Massage was a whole new experience for me, and during the sessions with Aleid, I could finally work on issues i had been carrying around for much too long. All in all i could really reload my batteries, which i defenitely needed. Thank you!"

    "I arrived exhausted, stressed out, feeling lost after a long period of intense work pressure. I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. But after only a few days, that light started radiating from within, and then I felt like I was glowing - a feeling which is hard to describe. And I can't say it was just Aleid's creatively insightful therapy and enlightening yoga, or Doby's deliciously soulful meals and resonating massages - because everything played a part in my recovery. This retreat is truly a holistic experience, and I was healed gently, subtly, on every level: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. There was never any pressure to do anything or be anything; Aleid and Doby guided me to my best self - and once whole again, I felt limitless and blissful. I'm taking everything I learned back home with me, and for that I'm forever thankful to the wonderful Aleid & Doby."

    "I visited Aleid and Doby right after New Year's Eve for four days and this has been my second time being their guest (first time in January 2015, when they still lived in Galilea). They moved to a bigger villa in Cala Figuera, which is absolutely beautiful with its nice, quiet bedrooms, (I had the cute room with terrace on the roof with a stunning view of the stars at night and the bed felt like heaven!), with its lovely balconies and relaxing areas in the green garden - and just one minute away from a beautiful natural harbor and the sea. As always, Doby made us absolutely happy with delicious food and Aleid with inspiring morning yoga. What is new and absolutely great: the sauna and a few bicycles, which I both enjoyed a lot (the beach is just 10 minutes away by bike). I am already thinking about my next holiday at their place! "

    "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 a 100 times more relaxing! I cannot praise my retreat enough, words can never explain how amazing my experience with them was. This is the best present anyone can treat themselves to. Everything was absolutely perfect!"

    10 out of 10

    "Experiencing Aleid and Dobys retreat felt just different, more grounded and real spirituality. I did not 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 it is either therapy or yoga and spirituality. Therefore, I really liked that you so easily integrate these worlds in your practice. Seeing and experiencing that combination of a theoretical and scientific background and yoga and 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 at 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 extent, 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."

    "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 am 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 every day. 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 two 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 have not 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 will 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. Aleid 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, healthy, 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. Aleid 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 personalized 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 had 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 do not 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 have 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 have 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 was 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, it made my practice so meaningful. And during the five years I have been doing yoga, she showed me how to really correct my poses. The two 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. À bientôt 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 the most 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 humor 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 every day, 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 personalizes each session. I also cannot forget Hearty, their lovely dog, who makes a wonderful walking companion through the village and the hills of Galilea. Doby and Aleid, I cannot 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."

    "I really managed to relax and get back the inner peace I had lost thanks to Aleid’s professional help, the friendly atmosphere of the house, and the beautiful mountain landscape. I go back home feeling stronger and with more psychological tools and a better experience of yoga."

    "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."
