Retreat yourself in Friesland

By 30/06/'14travel


Last weekend I had some amazing days in Friesland. I met Willemien from Retreat Yourself because she ordered Lennebelle for her online shop. When I found out she organised days, weekends and even whole holidays for yoga, mindfulness and healthy cooking like ayurveda cooking I immediately thought I should book a weekend yoga & mindfulness. Already interested in both yoga and mindfulness and feeling I could use a (re) treat like this I booked a weekend in Friesland at ‘it Flinkeboskje’.2rt

After a 4 and a half hour travel by public transport cross country (which is really pretty) I arrived at this beautiful spot. A big farm turned into a guesthouse and holiday home. The surroundings and the whole interior and attention to detail were just perfect! I loved my cute little room. Across ‘it Flinkeboskje’ is another farm called ‘Flinkefarm’ here you can enjoy a monthly farmersmarket and other fun events like fairs, vintage and antique sales and more. Here you can find out about all the events. But you can also have your own event here like a wedding. I imagined how mine would be here! long tables in the field, dancing by candlelight in the farm, everybody can stay because they are planning a farmerscamping too.

The whole weekend was a beautiful experience. The other participants were really nice, the yoga lessons were relaxing and fun, held in the sunny conservatory, the food was delicious and super healthy and the mindfulness workshops were inspirational and something I should definitely continue.3rt
