What we offer during this retreat
Intuitive Pottery &
Our Ceramic & Natural Glazing classes during the retreat are accommodating for absolute beginners as well as for people with some prior experience or ceramic professionals who would like to unveil the world of natural glazing for themselves. You will mostly focus on creating small scale sculptural pieces and intertwining clay practice with natural material research.
Holistic Nutrition &
Active food is food that is still active, makes you active and supports your active lifestyle. You will learn how to prepare simple snacks that can sustain your energy throughout the day without the sugar rush / crush mid afternoon and meals that help you re-fuel at the end of the day. The meals will be primarily seasonal, local but with an international influence - meant to inspire you to cook and prepare nourishing meals for yourself.
Yoga, Pilates &
We will also have 2 wonderful yoga & pilates teachers on site, who will help us strengthen, relax, flow and centre ourselves. There is also the possibility to take surf breaks and lessons (both for beginners and advanced) that will help us engage with our environment - the beautiful and powerful Atlantic Ocean - while facing our fears and (mental) limitations.
