Some experiences from previous participants

What a week, what an experience. I have felt, felt, felt a lot. Beautiful people, nature, delicious food. I see my life a little bit in the Sadhaka light now. (Stijn)

“Soft and powerful exchanges, using your body creatively to reach through the outerside, very lovingly unconditionally connecting in the moment in every new situation on all levels; per person differently”. If every human being in the world could and dare to experience this once, there would be less war! Thank you for your dedication and love to make the week as good as possible for everyone. (Jos)

Everyone is welcome, because everyone can take it a step further, whether you are new to dance and movement or a seasoned dancer.
