An urban day retreat in Amsterdam
2018 to be confirmed
10am – 5.30pm
Need a break but don’t have the time to go away? Then find your centre in the city with this urban escape in Amsterdam.
In the heart of the Jordaan, on a quiet canal that catches the sun, take a little time for yourself and cast off the cobwebs of winter with this special Spring Reset day retreat.
For a few hours only, close the door on the stress, stimulation and distraction of the outside world and enjoy this unique chance to unwind as you turn your attention inwards.
The day will begin on the mat with an invigorating and refreshing yoga practice. Since spring is naturally the time of regeneration and renewal, synonymous with new beginnings, we will focus on clearing stagnation by stimulating the free flow of energy through the body, awakening the senses and revitalising the mind to leave you feeling vibrant yet relaxed.
After a healthy and delicious Ayurvedic lunch I will introduce you to the fundamentals of Ayurveda and share insights on how you can adapt your diet and lifestyle to get the most out the new season. You’ll learn how to look after yourself well according to this ancient tradition by aligning with the dynamic rhythms of nature for increased health and wellbeing.
There will be free time for you to curl up with a book, listen to music, sit in meditation or nap before we complete the day with a long and luxurious restorative class.
Give yourself space and time with this special day retreat that will help you shake off winter and step radiantly into spring.

The Spring Reset is held at The Conscious Club, where stillness and sanctuary await.
This former chocolate factory is now the first public climate neutral canal house in Amsterdam. Plenty of white space, organic materials, antique detail and natural light provide us with the perfect space to slip into a slower pace.
Yoga will take place in the serene Zen Hall, while lunch will be served in The Green Temple which has its own living, botanical wall. Plush sofa’s and exposed brick walls in the cosy cafe offer a comfortable spot to relax and rest.
There are also ample yoga props, as well as separate showers and dressing rooms for men and women.
A delicious homemade lunch, provided by The Conscious Club Cafe, will be prepared using fresh, organic, seasonal produce, calling upon the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda.
