Day retreat 20_11 fb.jpg

I'm thrilled to, for the sixth time, host you for a day filled with yoga, movement, immersion, relaxation á​nd fresh healthy food on a spot next to the nature reserve of the Dijle valley, away from all bustle.

If we know we have grown and evolved as a part of this universe, we can grow to understand our bodies can be a ground of exploration and wonder. Through the lens of non-dual trantric philosophy, we will look at and experience what this means: the beauty of this way of thinking is that our bodies and all our earthly experiences can actually be a doorway to the core of your being. I am so looking forward to introduce you to this way of looking at yourself, that for me has felt like a homecoming.

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 the material into your whole being and it really becomes part of who you are.

The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass,
it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

-- Henry Miller

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.

The wonders of yoga....
After this mini retreat I feel back in balance.

The different parts smoothly flow into each other and complement one another. Like this the whole becomes a profound yoga experience.

The feeling I took with me is


for yoga,

for nature,

for you.

-- Elena


The afternoon was balanced and the different elements were all valuable. The free movement was new to me. I found it positively stimulating.

I find your way of teaching very pleasant, the attention for the adjustments and limits of everyone's body is important.

-- Leen


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.

-- Annick


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.
