You will awake each morning with an optional yoga class and then breakfast will be served. You will also have a quiet villa day to soak up the beautiful surroundings and relax. There will be an afternoon yoga class if time permits and even yoga Nidra in some evenings.

Nienke

Nienke has been practicing yoga for over two decades and has been passionately teaching yoga for over 13 years. She offers a compassionate yoga style that invites you to create the practice that is appropriate for your body and your energy level in each moment. Her classes provide a sanctuary to wander through the yogic journey, uncovering the layers to the true self within.

The villa is an ancient building that dates back to 1644. It stands at the foot of a stream which used to move the grindstones to grind both flour and olives (for oil). The stream is animated by the surrounding woods and a little bridge takes you over to a charming swimming pool surrounded by volcanic stones. There is a panoramic view of the countryside with over 70 hectares of green hills of olive groves and nut trees, woods, and wonderful valleys. Inside, the villa is charming and has been renovated in full respect of its original architecture.

    "Blissful is the best way I can describe the journey of “birthing your true self”. This experience has changed my life for the better. The depth of knowledge, understanding, and compassion from Nienke and my fellow yogi sisters surpassed any and all of my expectations. Anatomy, asana poses, philosophy, meditation, and yoga sutras are just some of the various leaves of life you can integrate. The community we have created is instrumental in reinforcing positive change within our hearts. Extending beyond personal growth our “be the love, share the karma” encompasses how we have nourished our roots and hearts to share outside of ourselves. I will forever be grateful! "

    "What a fabulous journey! My expectations were high but they have all been surpassed. Nienke has taught us with compassion, joy and a deep knowledge of all aspects of yoga. I have enjoyed every lesson and learned so much about this rich tradition. This is a well rounded, enjoyable 200 hour yoga teacher training that has prepared us to teach in the community. I have met wonderful, interesting women who shared this meaningful experience. We have all grown and discovered more about ourselves and life. Thank you, Nienke! "

    "The yamas and niyamas series was the highlight of the course for me. Understanding the deeper meaning of the yoga sutras will guide me in integrating these teachings, not only into my daily life, but also in my yoga practice, and wherever my journey takes me. The profound qualities of these “jewels” were essential for my personal growth. My fellow students (sisters) were amazing, and I learned a lot from their insights. Our discussions created a moving and soothing balance that has changed my yoga practice and my life in meaningful ways. I will never be the same person again because of the joy, wisdom, and balance that this experience has brought me. Thank you Nienke for your wonderful teachings, great sense of humor, compassion, and generosity. Your guidance helped me feel “open to grace”. You taught us that to be faithful yoga teachers, we must practice what we preach in our thoughts, words, and actions. I will always remember this time with gratitude. It has been an inspiring birthing journey."
