It’s not only about the move you make, it’s about the sacred space you enter

What does Yogaweek offer?

Yogaweek was founded in 2008. We invite you into stillness and a deep witnessing by means of yoga and meditation, reminding you of silence and love.  

The programme involves different yoga styles (hatha, yin and kundalini), dynamic and quiet meditations, breathwork,  coaching- and training exercises as well as bodywork.

What do we do?

My name is Katja Vermeulen, and I have been providing yoga- and meditation retreats and individual sessions since 2008. My retreats are about connecting to love, silence and connect with your true self and support a deep inner transformation. Which allows you a more relaxing attitude towards your life. 

For the retreats on Ibiza, I collaborate with Jasmin Hagenaars from Yoga Change Ibiza. We are currently in our fifth year of providing powerful retreats with themes such as: Inner Change, Love Yourself and Relax & Shine.

To embrace yourself in a deeper dimension

The impact of Yogaweek?

During our programs, you strengthen and purify yourself through stillness.

Away from the daily grind, work and family dynamics, you return to a place where you can witness with clarity. A renewed clarity that also supports you in walking your path of life. 

During our programmes you are encouraged to release old patterns or stress, to release tensions and access inner peace and quietness more easily.

In our daily lives, we are tempted to make things complex. During our retreats you learn to take things in life more lightly, from a center that’s genuine to you.

With enough awareness to your own well-being to confidently guide yourself.

Information weekends

These weekends help you recharge, find peace and quiet, as well as inspiration for any next steps in your life. For each theme, the classes and exercises are different. You can participate with no or very limited yoga and meditation experience.

Yoga and meditation are ways to deeply connect to yourself and your body, discover which things blocks you, as well as what is possible for you. You learn to look at yourself from a place of  silence. Through this deeper relationship with yourself, you will find it easier to open up to new possibilities, let go of what does not serve you and access your inner life force.

Theme: A weekend which focuses on looking inward by finding your silent centre (again). You learn to connect yourself to the silence in between sounds and thoughts, giving you direct access to the intuitive insights that guide your next steps in life.

Details: The weekend starts on Friday at 17:00, with the opening ceremony at 19:30. The weekend ends on Sunday at 16:00 to give you enough time to return home and prepare for the week ahead. The location offers one-person and two-person bedrooms.

Programme: The classes combine different yoga and meditation techniques, breathwork- and mindfulness exercises, relaxing movements, (silence) walks, sweat lodge ceremony and interventions. 

Food: The vegetarian meals help your body rest and recharge. 

Costs: €575,- for a two-person bedroom (#1.5 huisgenoten), and €717,- for a one-person bedroom, incl. two nights, two full-day programmes, two evening-programmes and three meals a day. (Max 10 participants)

 

Location

Location

In the Dutch province of Gelderland alongside the river Waal lies a beautiful, wooden house with four two-person bedrooms, a kitchen and workshop space. The garden is large enough for outdoor activities and hosts a natural pond for taking a cold bath. Extra bedrooms are located in wooden cabins across the property. The house located on the dike, and offers breathtaking views over the countryside and river.

Yogaweek coaching

During individual sessions, I remind you of silence and love. I consider myself a translator who, through a highly developed awareness. I can simple identify were the friction in your body or emotion or mentale state of mind is.  To help you find inner strength. I might also give real-life examples of where and how you are disloyal to yourself by sticking to old patterns that do not benefit you.

Energetic coaching

Our busy lives leave little space to appropriately process all of our experiences, whether mental, emotional or physical. Sidestepping or postponing this ‘processing’ often leads to blockages and tensions in your energy system. 

Do you feel stuck in a specific pattern? Do you experience difficulties creating space for ‘processing’? Or staying true to yourself? 

It can be challenging to start recognising and acknowledging certain blockages and tensions, let alone release yourself from them. My sessions offer just that space to let go of thought patterns and live through suppressed emotions. By bringing your body into a state of deep unwinding, I recalibrate the natural balance between contraction/tension and relaxation.

Potential outcomes are:

  • Physical relaxation and loosening up of thought patterns. 
  • Deeper understanding of your own behaviour.
  • Improvement of (personal/work) relationships.
  • Increased confidence to make decisions.
  • Self-esteem and self-love.

Reasons to book a session:

  • Physical tensions or pains in the body that ask for further inquiry or deepening of feeling.
  • Stress symptoms.
  • Learning to let go of (self-imposed) mental pressure.
  • Untangling negative (old) thought patterns.
  • Desire to stay true to oneself.

What I do: Through different methods, I help you lovingly witness and let go of behavioural patterns, unprocessed emotions and thoughts that do not serve you anymore. Depending on your case and preference, I use family constellations or energetically look into your life’s current dynamics. Together, we look at what parts of your body ask for much needed attention. Even issues that might go back in time, can present themselves to us in the present — and attending them during a session can bring about a sense of long-awaited liberation.

What a session looks like: In the session, we look in what ways your life force is still limited. Often, this is related to your ‘survival’ patterns and the adjustments you have (subconsciously) made in this life. ‘Survival’ patterns can originate from you as a person, but also your soul, family or process of incarnation.

We start each session with a few questions, and soon after you move onto the mat so we can travel to your inner world, together. I look into your mental and emotional body to see where we can direct both your and my attention to make space for what it is that you need most. During these sessions, you efficiently connect on a much deeper level with (parts of) your subconscious self.

If you feel like you have been endlessly addressing the same issue, patterns or problems through regular coaching without any result — you are in the right hands. Through this way of working I can teach you what is yours and what is not, and make space to return to your own, authentic path of life.
