A Self-Discovery Break: A Weekend Retreat

with Yoga Practice, Group Coaching and Reflection

19-21 November 2021

De Dieken (Holten), The Netherlands

In this weekend retreat, we invite you to take a break from your busy, often run-on-autopilot life and slow down to (re)discover yourself. You will spend time exploring both mind and body, while reflecting to reconnect with who you are at your core. 


Led by Life & Career Coach Natália Leal and Yoga Instructor Shimrit Florentin (Yoga with Shimi), the retreat combines guided individual reflection, group coaching and discussion, yoga sessions and meditation moments. We offer research-based information as well as practical tips and techniques to use in your everyday life. It is the perfect retreat for beginners, as well as for those who wish to go deeper in their inner journey of self-development. 


Yoga sessions

The yoga sessions are meant for all levels. Whether you are new to the practice or have an ongoing yoga practice, you will be able to participate fully as variations and adjustments are offered. If you are dealing with an injury or chronic pain, please let us know at the time of registration and we will make sure to support you during the retreat.



This retreat will be held at Herberg De Dieken, in the East of the Netherlands, in the middle of the nature of the Holterberg, less than 10 minutes driving or cycling from Holten NS station.


Surrounded by woods, De Dieken is a wonderful place to take a break from daily routine. It offers simple but cosy accommodation, with tasty vegan meals. De Dieken can host a maximum of 15 participants staying overnight.
