About the retreat:

On a beautiful location close to the Dutch seashore Karen and Daphne invite you on this amazing 3-day transformative breathwork and yin yoga retreat. While Karen will take you on an inner journey through conscious connecting breathwork to help you clear the obstacles that might linger in your subconscious mind, Daphne will support this deep dive by guiding you into to the body’s consciousness through Meditation, Pranayama and Yin Yoga. This intense combination of technics is designed to free, release and restore and to reconnect with yourself and to help you on the path of growth and transformation. From fear into trust and coming home to yourself.

Breath is the force that sustains life; conscious breath is the force that sustains awareness. In the practice of yoga, the breath is
fundamental. Regulated breath opens the body and channels vital energy, or prana. Mindful breath facilitates equilibrium and supports Yoga Asana. Conscious breath provides focus and enables the mind to reach its meditative state. In these challenging times of change and uncertainty , this retreat will give you the opportunity to find ground within your own being and get clarity into your life, release blockages and stress out of your system and reconnect with your souls’ purpose.

About Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is slow-paced style of yoga postures incorporating principles of Traditional Chines Medicine with asanas(postures) that are held for longer periods of time. Advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. The sequences of postures are meant to stimulate the channels of the subtle body known as Meridians in Chinese medicine and as nadis in Hatha Yoga

Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissue of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative or spiritual approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality. Yin is learning the art to surrender to what is.

About Breathwork

Conscious Connected Breathwork

Our Breath is the most immediate source of energy and healing for our physical, emotional, and spiritual well- being. Breathwork is simple, safe and can be experienced by everyone regardless of age and health. It offers an invitation to reconnect with yourself, erase limited patterns and be open to the full, beautiful flow of life. Quite literally, when you change your breath, you change your life. 

It works on every level, the physical level, emotional-mental level and the spiritual level. 

On physical level you will detox your body by obtaining lots of oxygen, bring back your Ph-value in balance by alkalizing, strengthen your immune system and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system and the vagus-nerve creating a relaxation response and balancing the flow of energy throughout the body. 

On mental level, conscious breathing optimizes the power of mental concentration, learning capacity, observation, productivity, and decision-making. Our breath provides focus and clarity to enhance awareness and presence in every moment.

On an Emotional level, integrated breathwork provides profound inner peace and relaxation, feelings of safety, self-love and acceptance.  Connecting breathing will move the information of emotions and or trauma, who secured and isolated in the cells so you get enable to feel and process them through in a safe setting and release them. By breathing through those emotional blockades, you will clear up your system by making literal new space. Patterns of resistance, cultural conditions and self-sabotage are brought into awareness where they can be worked on directly. 

Does it really matter how we breath as long as we receive enough oxygen to stay alive? Yes! The breath influences your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being but there is also the opposite. That is strong physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual challenges significantly limit our ability to breathe fully, freely and joyously.

Your guide Karen

Karen works for 3 years as a certified Breathwork Facilitator.

Years of chronical hyperventilation and panic-attacks brought her to Breathwork.

She experienced a lot of physical and mental troubles caused by a dysfunctional breath pattern. Breathwork helped her to reprogram her own Breath pattern, brings nervous system, mind, and body back in balance, but it also brought her the key to excess unlimited consciousness.

She fell deeply in love with this Transformative breathing work, guiding people to take this inner journey deep into themselves, to connect back to the earth, back to who they truly are so they can live and lead from their heart.

Karen has been trained by one of the pioneers of Breathwork in the Netherlands, Mr. Breath Rob Koning.

She gives private and group sessions, workshops and trainings.


Karen Schreuder

Your guide Daphne

Though Daphne was trained in many styles of yoga-like Freestyle Vinyasa, Hatha and Restorative, she now only teaches and practices Ashtanga, Yin Yoga and Meditation/ Mindfulness. In these practices, she finds the perfect balance between Yin and Yang qualities.

Daphne hopes to inspire her students to turn their attention inward, getting in contact with their body, heart, and mind, embracing their dualities, and discovering that once you love yourself you automatically love others.

Daphne’s search for the outside world has brought her to her inner world. In 2008 she decided to take the Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with Johan Noorloos and Marcel van de Vis Heil. This decision has proven to be very important to her. She continued with advanced training with the help of Anat Geiger. Daphne has taken further workshops and training with David Swenson, Anthony Carlisi, Ross Rayburn, Mark Holzman and Martin Kirk, Kino Macgregor, Eddie Stern, Paul Dalaghan, and her beloved teachers Paul and Suzee Grilley and Sarah and Ty Powers.
In September 2015 she also graduated as a Holistic Health Coach at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York.

3 times a year together with Tijn Touber and Juno Burger she teaches silent retreats at Mandali Italy. www.mandali.org and weekly yoga classes in Amsterdam at the Yoga Circle. www.yogacircle.nl


Your guide Jeanette

Jeanette has been an Ayurvedic coach and retreat chef for over 10 years. Her plant-based menu with mainly Western-oriented Ayurvedic recipes are a true feast for the eyes and taste.

Jeanette cooks in many yoga, meditation and silent retreats, gives food talks and cooking workshops & individual sessions at home and abroad. She also gained experience in an ashram kitchen in Canada during her yoga training. Ayurveda is her great passion and she will prepare your meals with lots of love.

“In my own search for health, yoga and Ayurveda were my guidance. Both, connected by their holistic approach, I have rediscovered my own constitution and especially optimal digestion. Ayurveda in general has given me a well-founded view of nutrition, nature, people and especially the interaction between all of this.”

In 2008 she decided to change course and this course took her to Portugal in 2008 and since 2009 Jeanette has been giving yoga classes and workshops inspired by the traditional Hatha style, including life in ashrams. The trick now is to apply the experiences, impressions and connection with nature from Portugal, the peace and quiet from the ashrams and the deep wisdom of Ayurveda in everyday busy life.
