Back to Basics, Back to Nature, Back to you.
24 September – 01 October 2022
This retreat will be hosted in English
For our second edition of our Tantra & Yoga retreat we are moving to the beautiful National Parc of Sierra de las Nieves in Spain.
In this gorgeous natural environment you’ll find time to unwind, relax, learn and connect.
What are we going to do?
First and foremost: anything you want!
This week we’ll be practicing Tantra and Yoga both individually and as a group.
Tantra is all about connection, which starts with your own loving connection to the self:
you don’t have to do anything you dont feel like! Huray!
Secondly Tantra is a celebration of life, so we’ll celebrate by dacing, eating, sharing and enjoyig nature.
We will start our journey together on Saturday with a welcome-ceremony.
The next 6 days we offer you a program full of Yoga, meditation and playful group-practice.
3 out of those 6 days we’ll spend the afternoon discovering what Tantra is all about.
You’ll get some philosophical background, but mostly you’ll get to experiment.
Through dance, eyecontact, play and touch, you’ll learn how connection with others and the world around you brings you closer to yourself.
During your spare time you are free to enjoy the natural spring water swimming pool, go on hikes, read,… or book an optional constellation workshop, or massage therapy.

What is applied Tantric Philosophy?
During these hours we’ll dive into Tantric Philosophy.
– What does Tantra mean?
– How has this philosophy become a synonym for “weird sex” in the Western eye? And what is it actually about?
– How to we apply this Tantric view to yoga, meditation and our everyday activities?
As Tantra is an experience based philosophy, we will not spend a lot of time “lecturing”. Rather we have you experience it for yourself through different types of excercises. We’ll explore subjects such as consent, gender, trust, showing yourself and carrying and being carried. Our aim is to turn our vulnerability into strength.
Throughout this retreat, Judith and Lettemieke brought a wealth of knowledge,
together creating a beautiful balance of energies.
I felt a perfect balance in the schedule too- between the yoga, meditations,
dance, play, philosophy and much much more… as well as the free time needed to take it all in.
I found here the space to stretch my body and my mind, and to express myself in a warm and safe environment.
I feel blessed to have taken part in such a magical week that helped me to recenter and re-energize myself.
