About the retreat: 

In this 6 day retreat, you can expect some silence, active (vinyasa) yoga and relaxing yin yoga, meditation, mindful nature walks, great vegetarian food, connections and great views.

A beautiful moment to disconnect from everyday life, screens and to-do lists, to connect with yourself, to ground with the mountains, with your body and breath and enjoy following what feels nourishing to you.

Although it is not a fully silent retreat, we will have silent moments, such as the first couple of hours in the morning, to give you space with yourself and the sunrise.

The teacher

My name is Athena, I have been teaching yoga since 2015. My practice began in Montreal, Canada in 2010, I began learning from many teachers through practice, and took a 200 hour training in Bali, Indonesia in 2015. I continued studying in Canada diving into topics such as yin yoga, hands-on assisting, Yoga Tune Up (functional movement in yoga and Myofascial Release). I moved to the Netherlands in early 2020, where I teach and since 2021, I am studying physiotherapy.

My purpose as a yoga and meditation teacher is to offer the space for presence, away from the distractions of everyday life, and to take the time to feel any thought and emotion as it shows up. This is practised through mindful movement, understanding of one’s body, and through stillness, rest, silence and sounds.







My intention for this retreat is to offer you a space to lean towards silence – inner and outer – to feel present in your body and to savour the beautiful mountains, nature and of course the delicious food.



This retreat is offered in English.

I also speak French, and a basic level of Dutch and Greek.
