I'm so excited to take you for the third time on an afternoon filled with yoga, movement, immersion & relaxation on a spot next to the nature reserve of the Dijle valley, away from all bustle.


Autumn is a season that's associated with letting go of what we don't need in order to prepare to turn inward and switch to the energy saving mode of winter. This is just a metaphor for what yoga invites us to strive for: to shed the layers of our self in order to come closer to our essence. In this season of transition, we'll investigate what can support us on this journey so we can stay resilient in the process of constant re-rendering.


My goal is always to use elements of yoga, free movement, meditation, journaling and a hint of philosophy to explore these ideas in our bodies, so you integrate everything into your whole being and it really can become part of who you are.

The changing colours of autumn
remind me of
the gold that lies
in letting go.

-- Lies Mahy

De Baarbeekhoeve is a historic farm from 1800 on the border of the nature reserve of the Dijle valley, near Mechelen. The farm has been converted and renovated with respect for the old character and with use of natural and ecological materials. The fertile grounds surrounding the farm are used to grow vegetables and fruit, that are sold, straight from the field, in the farm shop. The old barn got transformed into a space for workshops, courses and meetings.

I absolutely got what I hoped for. I returned home with a feeling of surrender to the flow, harmony and movement, of which Lies' classes are always and wonderful example.


The surroundings are an absolute recommendation, a magnificent farm in a wonderful piece of nature.


I defenitely feel like returning and being part again of a mini retreat, because that is really how it felt.

The deepening of a theme before the class had a positive effect on the experience.

Also the next day I felt pleasant, relaxed and energetic.

The inspiring theme continues to work.

Very nice that there is a lot of freedom to do your thing. Everything happens in a positive atmosphere.
