  • Gertrud Tavernier

    Gertrud's passion with yoga started at an 11-day silent meditation retreat in Thailand where one and a half hours Vinyasa yoga was part of the daily program. Her flexibility improved beyond her comprehension. Since then, she vigorously practices yoga on a daily basis, training in different styles yet with the main focus on Vinyasa power and flow and Yin yoga as she feels these styles provide the perfect balance between the creation of peace of mind and bodily focus. She is a certified RYA200 teacher.

    "You are not your thoughts - that is what I learned from this retreat. A house that felt like home. A group of lovely people who were supportive, understanding and positive in all ways. The retreat passed by too fast. I’m so grateful to have spent this week in such a lovely place (pool, house). An unforgettable experience! Thanks to Amy for the delicious food and awesome massage. Thanks for your always positive attitude, Rose. Felix, thanks for your awesome crossfit classes and really good one-to-one boxing instructions, it was great fun and I improved a lot! Also a big thanks for the two yoga classes each day, I followed attentively and gained some flexibility."

    "Die Leichtigkeit der Ablaüfe und des Zusammenspiels hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Ausserdem waren die alle immer sehr gut gelaunt, haben viel gelacht und alle Dinge erschienen sehr leicht. Das essen war supertoll, ein im wahren Sinnen “Augenschmaus” und es schmeckte herausvoragend, war phantasievoll zusammengestellt und liebevoll angerichtet!"

    "Schön war auch das wir yoga Unterricht bekamen von 2 Lehrerinnen, Gertrud und Rose! Und Hula Hoop mit Gertrud machte sehr viel Spass! Besonders schön war für mich Meditation und Schweigen mit Rose, Atmen und Schwimmen am/im See und Tanzen am Meer! You are all 3 very gut teachers und sehr liebevolle!"

    "I arrived feeling frazzled, I was running on empty! The welcome I received made me instantly feel at home. The environment was relaxed, the yoga classes were pitched to suit all levels of experience. The accommodation was clean and well maintained. The food was superb with a wide variety throughout the week; every night, I exclaimed, "This has been the best food so far!" The passion and depth of knowledge that Sarah and Rose have for yoga is testament to their genuine appreciation for yogic philosophy. I leave with a softness in my body and in my mind - the tank is now full! I will return as soon as I can."
