Your DREAM Year!

There is nothing in nature that blooms all year long, so don't expect yourself to do so either

It's the beginning of a new year: 2019. According to numerology, 2019 is influenced by the number 3. A number that vibrates with activity, creative exploration and emotional sensitivity. It defines a desire to create and work on self-development. It makes you want to shape your outside world to match who you really are, deep down. 

For me, 2019 will definitely be a year in which I work on self-growth and above all: more self care. Saying 'yes' to others, without saying 'no' to myself. 
Many of us have so many responsibilities in life that we forget to take care of our personal needs.

We are less able to handle the stresses that come our way when we're already depleted by physical and emotional exhaustion. Or, put in a more positive way, we are more resilient and more able to handle life's stress when we are feeling our best both physically and emotionally. 

In 2019, I will find and walk my own path. I encourage you to do the same. Try some self-care strategies; take a massage, start doing yoga, do what makes you happy, learn what you want to know. I have some events, workshops and retreats in 2019 that will help you to incorporate more self care in your life...

And remember: self care is not selfish!


Love, Sanne

the Algarve - Santa Bárbara de Nexe | 15 - 19 July

Close your eyes for a moment... Imagine yourself in a place of serenity and tranquility amidst beautiful green hills, overlooking the Atlantic coastline. A place to connect with yourself and other women by doing yoga together, dancing together and breathing in the sweet summer air. An opportunity to relax and embrace your feminine strength, inspired by the full moon's energy. Enjoying delicious, local, vegetarian food in which you can almost taste the sun.

The lovely Débora and I set up a retreat to give you all that... and more. We promise to pamper your body and soul with yoga, dance, meditation, mindful hikes and bike rides. There's also more than enough opportunity to relax, read a book, have a relaxing massage or visit the sauna. 

We chose Casa Danielle as our backdrop, a villa complex in an area of unspoilt natural beauty. It boasts elevated, wide-sweeping views of the hills and Atlantic coast. On the terrain you’ll find a well-insulated breezy yurt, a delightful pond-shaped swimming pool with a large tiled patio area, a fully-equipped, solar-powered wooden massage cabin and an infra-red sauna room. Want to see for yourself? Check out

Be prepared to go home as a woman reborn...
If you will even want to go home!

The Algarve - Olhão | 3 February

Volunteering your time, money, or energy to help others doesn’t just make the world better, it also makes you better. The very act of giving back boosts your happiness, health, and sense of well-being. When one person performs a good deed, the effect can create a ripple that inspires dozens of individuals to make a difference.  

That is why the proceeds of this Winter Wellness Yoga Session will benefit children in need. Your generosity will bring you a beautiful afternoon with yoga and meditation accompanied by live piano to reach pure deep relaxation.

Nandita, 13 February | Bindi,  24 

This popular and unique workshop consists of a powerful combination of chakra meditation and and an old natural medicine: ginger. It will balance your mind, relax your body and warm your spirit.
This time we will also incorporate sound healing: angelic live piano music to soothe the soul by Caroline.
Her music is like a journey with peaks and valleys. Sometimes it is confrontational, sometimes it flows. And she would like to share it. It will never be conventional, but it might give you a glimpse of a place you have never been before. Check out her website for more.

A gentle yoga session will guide you on a journey along the chakra's, the energy centers within our subtle body. You will find deep relaxation and loving awareness during the chakra meditation that follows, and last but most certainly not least - a healing ginger compress is made that is placed on your back near your kidneys, together with a warm water bottle. While you lie under a blanket you can let your body rest. The compress has a warming effect, stimulates blood circulation and is anti-inflammatory.

MOOD, The Netherlands | For all dates, check agenda

Yoga Massage consists of a coordinated combination of yoga, massage, mindfulness and acupressure. The body of the client is positioned into yoga-derived stretches and massages with the help of thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet. Yoga Massage is different from other massages in that both the massage therapist and the client are constantly moving. Both yoga and massage allow energy to flow through the body and remove blockages in this energy flow. Therefore, Yoga Massage goes deeper than the manipulation of muscles and tissue and also works on the emotional level. It is a holistic, complete view of the body and mind.

Want to be able to offer this unique, healing form of massage yourself? Sign up for the Yoga Massage I course or the brand new Yoga Massage II course. Not sure yet if Yoga Massage is for you? Come to the intro day to find out!
