We retreat ourselves in a spacious mansion located in the rural area near Castricum (30 minutes from Amsterdam/ Schiphol Airport), part of a protected nature reserve: the North Holland dune reserve. If you walk out the door, you’ll find yourself immediately in the dunes; a little further and you’re at the sea! This area is about 5,300 hectares, which makes it one of the biggest reserves in the country. Forests, heathlands, meadows, dunes and beach: all of it is within reach. Our yoga sessions are held in the characteristic chapel, we lounge in the conservatory with old church bells or in the beautiful garden. Sleeping accommodation is shared.
