Our Programme for this yoga weekend
Below you can see what we could be up to during this weekend. It’s more of a general outline than a fixed progam. Timings can be a little bit different, and also our activities can be a bit different, all depending on weather conditions.
We’ll also leave enough space for adjustments in the schedule, just to be open for the unexpected and for you, to find enough room to simply relax. We might add or skip something, do an extra meditation or go for a guided walk, all depending on the weather conditions and our overall group interest.
This is your weekend, your time off, so primarily we want you to relax and enjoy yourself.

Why not add a wonderful and rejuvenating massage?
Our favourite massage therapist, Annemieke de Poel is joining us again and ready to spoil you with a well-deserved massage. We have been working with Annemieke on our Ibiza retreats and once you have had a massage from her,… well… check for yourself 🙂 She is trained in ayurveda, shiatsu, relaxation, rebalancing and reflexology. Throughout the years, she has developed her own style. Above all, she’s a very pure and fun person to be with!
Beth Al-Rikabi as our personal retreat chef!
Beth will be preparing all our meals during the weekend. Prepare for utterly divine cuisine!
We have been working with Beth on many of our retreats and every time people get so incredibly inspired by her way of preparing meals.
During the weekend, Beth will show you just how delicious and varied a vegetarian diet can be, whilst avoiding refined and processed products and focusing on the gifts of nature.
Beth caters effortlessly for those with allergies or intolerances, just let us know in time.
The food during this yoga weekend will be truly inspiring and at the end of our retreats, people usually ask for ALL her recipes!

Your host, Rachel Bonkink
I have been teaching for several years now and I do what I do because it is who I am – it is what I love to do. Traveling the world and inspiring people in anyway I can. In the past four years, I have organized over 50 yoga holidays that sold out and Revealing Vajra is seen by many now as thé reference for yoga holidays, for which I am very grateful.
I live in Morocco, where every single day I can practise ‘Going with the Flow’…
I don’t take life all too seriously, nor do I see yoga as the most serious thing in the world. It’s very possible that I crack jokes here or there during our classes together…
Pranayama (breathing), meditation and yoga philosophy are part of all my lessons during this weekend. Classes will be gentle and challenging at the same time. My lessons are accessible to people who are just starting out with asanas as well as super flexi pretzel pro’s.
I get a lot of inspiration by the teachings of Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark and Alan Wallace. People who I regularly see for follow up trainings and retreats. Integrating Yin and Yang yoga with mindfulness, meridian work and meditation. Grateful to more Iyengar inspired teachers like Gustavo Ponce and John Stirk for their views and thankful for the many, less ‘famous’ Indian teachers that I met for sharing the knowledge on traditional Hatha yoga.
I am happy to discuss your expectations and see if this weekend is right for you. I welcome any and all questions or concerns you may have and invite you to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Alweer een fantastische vakantie/retreat gehad! Een superleuke uitstap, mega-lekker eten, uitzonderlijk aardige en sympathieke medereizigers. Wat wil en kan je nog meer verwachten. Ik ben volledig opgeladen om er terug met een heel positive ingesteldheid tegen aan te gaan. Als de batterijen leeg zijn, zie je me voor de vierde keer terug! Bedankt voor alles! Het was fantastisch!

I enjoyed this very much! It's very easy to learn and adapt with Rachel. She gets everyone involved but nobody is pushed in any way. She brings a certain calm and peace over the group and for sure also on me. Something I needed very badly. Sometimes confronting but I learned so much, mostly about myself. About letting things go and saying 'no' and not feeling guilty about it. I can be whoever I want to be! It was a real revelation to me, thank you, Rachel!
