TESTIMONIALS

This was truly the most special week in my life so far. I'm still processing what exactly happened to me, but I feel more like me, and more powerful than I ever did before. This week helped me to finally listen to the potential that was already inside of me, instead of listening to the voice of my fears. It helped my to finally follow my heart and make some drastic changes in my life. It was really special to share my journey with this amazing group of people: I couldn't have done it without them! I also can't thank Tim & Marieke enough for their support and the facilitation of the blossoming of Kim! -- Kim/ Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

Am I still in awe. The practise of Kundalini Yoga really got me. For building strength, inner balance and my nature. To learn the nature of my bodies, and how to release blockages by practicing yoga. All this with a group of beautiful dedicated souls. And Marieke and Tim keeping space for these processes is a gift. I hope many beautiful souls are able to have this experience. Because it’s life cracking amazing. And not to forget the incredible breakfast after sadhana. Or the stunning lunches. Wahe guru!!  -- Jantien / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

I feel truly blessed that this retreat came on my path. It has been a profound experience. The beautiful people, the magic of the mountains, the great food and last but not least the inner journey that I made. The walls I build over the past years started to tumble down. For me the new beginning to start living from the heart instead of the head. Sat Nam! -- Joyce / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

This week was an intense, beautiful and powerful experience, in which we were invited to find our way to break through the old patterns that we subconsciously hold on to. I definitely reconnected to my own strength, endurance and focus, feeling and connecting to my own potential.

Marieke and Tim guided us through the layers and patterns of our conscious and subconscious mind, using powerful yoga kriyas, playful group exercises, chanting and meditations to deeply connect us with ourselves. Showing us the beauty of staying present with the sensations we experience during the different practices and releasing our creative power through writing and drawing.

My biggest revelation of the week has been the experience that I can use my mind to keep me focussed on what I want and what I need, in stead of letting my mind have it's own (crazy) way. I clearly see myself being very aware of my thoughts and redirecting their energy to a place of healthy empowerment. Super grateful for this insight and experience. In love, bless and bliss. Sat nam. Thierry --  Thierry/ Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

The retreat on top of the hill in Italy has been a very special week. Great to be diving into Kundalini yoga practice, seeing beautiful sunrises at Sadhana (gave me goosebumps every day!), beautiful people to share this week with, doing seva and a fantastic vision quest which gave me some good insights. It has been a wonderful journey and I would love to come again next year. -- Ingrid/ Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

 A week full of self-love and making new friends. Everything is taken care of: healthy food made by superb chefs, a fixed schedule, the sun, nature, clean accommodation and an open air shower to enjoy the mountain view. Only thing you have to do is opening up yourself to let the Kundalini flow, to work on yourself, supported by the energy, the love and the kindness of the group. Guided by Marieke & Tim who take care of you in any situation. Who smile throughout the week and who make Kundalini yoga more down to earth than you would expect beforehand. -- Micaela / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

I so far had the opportunity to experience the Kundalini Yoga retreats in Italy twice. I had done some yoga before, even some Kundalini Yoga, but to be honest, I had no idea what to expect that first time I joined. The theme of the retreat was ‘Coming home to yourself’; it was something that started to make sense to me as I participated in the retreat. Spending a whole week, at an indescribable beautiful location, with lovely weather and amazing people, has really touched me. I really got a chance to go ‘inward’, to come home to myself, something I had never experienced before. Very special!

The next year I joined again. The expectations that I had about the week and the program, according to my first  experience, didn’t make any sense. It was a different theme (Detox) and a totally different programme, with many new and surprising elements and experiences. Again I got to meet so many nice people. And of course, the weather and the location where still as lovely and beautiful. And I should not forget to mention, our great teachers: Marieke and Tim! I will join the retreat again, I am already looking forward to it, all these great ingredients for another unforgettable week! Sat Nam. -- Peter S. / Kundalini Yoga Retreats Italy

The atmosphere and safety you guys create during this retreat is thus that I can totally surrender to everything. And the way you explain things is a true enrichment of the process. -- Els / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

I keep coming back to this Italy retreat. When people ask me how it was, I describe it as a yearly thorough 'spring cleaning' of my body and mind. It's amazing what you can do in just a week. Sat Nam! -- Anke / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

Powerful and deeply connected is how I feel after 7 days of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini means potential. The potent creative life energy that is here for us, in us. How do I put in words what this week has brought me, when I feel that words are not able to cover the space that I met within me. Mostly it gave me freedom, true freedom within. I feel the immense power of my being and how much more is possible than what we think is. Kundalini Yoga contains intense physical exercises where we are being invited to meet the edges of our perceived physical limitations, till the point that the body feels pain and the mind wants us to stop. I could hear my mind saying, I cannot do this. I am not fit enough, not strong enough. This is fking crazy. Why do I choose to torture myself in such a way? And Yes it can be pretty intense and I am someones that stands for a soft way of learning but in this case, it was very good for me.I could clearly see where I sabotage myself. Where my mind comes in and starts to tell my self stories that create suffering. I could see where the source of my suffering is rooted, in my subconscious beliefs. I discovered when I kept on going I could transform the pain, it became bearable and sometimes even blissful. I discovered that I am so much stronger than I thought I was.

Kundalini yoga for me is all about discipline, focus, structure, endurance, containing and directing energy and connection with the space beyond the mind. Entering the subconscious mind and releasing everything that doesn’t serve anymore. If you really know me then you know that I am all about living in the moment, following the flow, living life the feminine way in receptivity, softness, yet powerful but in ease. This was nothing but ease, but I needed this.

It was basically a few years of talking therapy in one week. I saw how I created a wall against anything to do with structure, discipline, rules, focus, etc. And it wasn’t serving me. I needed to let go of that. The last missing piece to bring my healing programs into the world was this. Stepping into real freedom. Focusing and directing my energy to create what I want. My grandfather who had a black belt in karate and a successful karate school would say: “Freedom is discipline”. 

And this time, I agree.

And I wanna thank my beautiful partner Thierry for inspiring me to join this amazing training ❤️ -- Rose Ayuna / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

Tim & Marieke provided the perfect conditions for an unforgettable spiritual journey: a thorough yoga and meditation programme (balanced between seriousness and fun), camping amidst the olive trees, only the sound of nature around you, early morning Sadhana seeing the sun coming up behind the mountains, delicious, nourishing (mostly Indian) food. The lovely group and teachers hold space for every single soul present. During this retreat I explored a deeper connection with my inner being and opened up to spread the love. Wahe guru!  -- Inge / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

I participated in the retreat of June 2018. It's a week in which I've gained useful insights about myself. Some of the insights had been slumbering on the background for a while, so they were not totally new to me. But what I like about a week like this, is that you make time to stand still, get to the essence and make space for the things you would like tot change. For me the week is all about self development. Also there was enough time to relax in between the sessions so it felt like a holiday as well. I love the accommodation and teachers; the surrounding is beautiful and peaceful, the accommodations are pretty basic which matches the yoga well, and Tim and Marieke are incredibly skilled in leading such a week. I really recommend joining this retreat. -- Anna / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

It was a very special yoga retreat and the classes are fantastic! I’m grateful for you and what the retreat has given me. Happy to come again on the next retreat on the hill in Italy and enjoy the magical sunrises during Sadhana. -- Roslyn / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

This retreat has given me so much. In the week after it I noticed I was much more able to concentrate myself and my memory improved! Since then I am doing a meditation every day and that feels great. I’m so happy about this. I can truly recommend this retreat experience to everyone. -- Maaike I Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy

This retreat has been very special, I experienced many beautiful things and I have met very nice people. Never guessed a group process could be so good (I’m not really a ‘group person’) and to see the goodness in everybody. -- Corinne I Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy 

Everything was organised to perfection! You seemed to enjoy giving this retreat just as much as the participants enjoyed being there and that made it a very special and fun experience. -- Ellis / Kundalini Yoga Retreat Italy
