This day retreat is focused on boosting your mood, generating life-force and raising your vibration, activating the Soma within.
We will engage in different styles of dynamic movement, breathing techniques and meditations.
We will dive deeper into understanding our energetic field and how we can become more aware of it, how to raise our vibration, and experientally find out more about our current state of being.
For those brave enough, there will be the ice bath / CWI Cold Water Immersion experience as well.
Make friends with the cold and find out how strong and resilient you really are.
How to overcome fear and deal with (positive) stress the empowering way.
Learn about the many benefits of regular cold exposure and take your health to the next level.
We will start the day with a mix of Yoga and Qigong style warmup - always bringing much awareness to the breath, oxygenising, alkalising, energising the body.
We will be playing with synchronising both hemispheres of the brain, create heart brain coherence, use intermittent hypoxic training techniques, and using amazing brain entrainment music.
We will shake it loose and snap out of the normal, to raise up and feel really good.
We will reach deep states of meditation.
I am currently working on this page - please come back soon for more info !
There will be heaps of time to go deeper into the practise and experiment.
Cold exposure via the ice bath will be the ultimate test to calm yourself all the way down and breathe !
Wim Hof likes to say: Breath is life and cold is God !

A bit more about me;
I was born in The Netherlands about half a century ago. I have always been looking for truth, and ways to empower and heal myself and others, to deprogram from all the lies and limiting beliefs and reprogram towards living a healthy life full of meaning and joy.
I have found that ones vibration, ones vibrational state of being is of great importance in life.
If you live in anxiety and fear you will attract more of it in your life.
And it will keep you in a dumbed down state of fight or flight.
If you live with love and joy then these higher vibrations will attract more of the same.
And you can live in a state of flow where you have access to your intuition and full potential, you just know things and life is easy.
Breathwork is a key to start mastering awareness of, and control over your vibrational state and I believe that Yoga has always been about that too, not just being stretchy on a mat.
Once on this path, everything changes !
"Circumstances don't matter - Only my state of being matters"
I love sharing the good and important things I have found, and am excited to now be in the phase of my life to be of service, empowering others.
I have picked up a few good things on my journey, and studied many modalities; I graduaded as Advanced Soma Breath Instructor, Rapid Transformational Therapist, RTT Hypnotherapist, The Work of Byron Katie, Reiki III, Quantum Touch and hold a Permaculture PDC . Ongoing, I am always learning more: Yoga, Tantra, NLP, Astrology, Nummerology, Plant Medicine, Healthy Diet / Natural Hygiene, Herbs and Power-foods and I have travelled extensively.
I have lived in The Netherlands, Hawaii, New Zealand and am currently in Kuranda, the tropical Far North of Queensland Australia.
I am a keen permaculture gardener, have a plant-based diet with lots of fruit, and started practising Yoga and Meditation 30 years ago.
Qigong more recently and Pranayama / Breathwork since 2019, and daily cold exposure (ice bath) more recently.
I love sharing Soma breath work with people as its having such a deep effect on me and on everyone I share it with.
I love to help people get into an uplifting, rewarding daily practise.
My body is my Temple
