12 to 16 participants
Yoga for all levels


This week is especially for and all about you! Everything around us, including our own bodies, exists of the five basic elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether. During this retreat we will journey through these elements, to reconnect with ourselves. We will restore, nourish and rebalance our systems by the practice of several kinds of yoga, mindfulness, meditations, reflections, delicious food and an abundance of free time! The setting for this all will be the beautiful space of “El Botanico de Sagra” with its lovely staff. When you start reconnecting with yourself you feel empowerment from within. After this week you will feel more relaxed, connected, flexible, strong, and filled with beautiful energy!

All classes are taught in English.

What can you expect during your stay? We start the week by seeing the world through the grounding element Earth.

Morning – Arise in nature between Earth and Sky with a meditative silent walk in full consciousness. We will leave El Botanico to go to the heights of Sagra, admire the wonderful colours of the sunrise and fill ourselves with its light. During this walk of about twenty minutes, we will awaken our bodies and awaken our minds to what surrounds us. Upon the mountain, a herbal tea (infusion of our aromatic plants) with some almonds will be waiting for us. We focus on rooting down, into your physical body, during a Gentle Flow Yoga. How does your body feel right here and right now?

Midday – the midday starts with a rich vegetarian lunch followed by an afternoon free. Stroll around the botanical garden, the vegetable garden or fresh water pool, go to the beach or visit the surrounding villages. Feel free to do what you feel like.

Evening – We end the day with a Sunset Yin Yoga and a candlelight dinner made by a local chef in the enchanting gardens of El Botanico. All our vegetarian dishes are prepared with love and care for products from organic and local agriculture.

The following days we will discover together the elements Air, Fire, Water and Ether. Each element has its own rhythm and assets. The build up of the days will remain approximately the same. Added activities will be planting ceremonies, bonfire ceremonies, Meditation & Pranayama, Yin Yoga and sharing circle. Ayurvedic massages are possible on reservation.

My name is Rosan and I am an Amsterdam based yoga teacher. Five years ago, after almost 20 years of working for the airline KLM, I changed my life around and became a full time yoga teacher. I love to travel and last years I travelled a lot around the globe and created opportunities to teach yoga at the most beautiful places on Earth, like Bali, West Australia, Italy and off course Holland.

My style of teaching feels like a journey of the self through the self to the self. I invite you to turn your focus inwards, to become more aware of your breath and the sensations in your own body and I keep on guiding you through the whole practice, so you become the explorer. My main focus will always be on love and compassion for yourself.

I am looking forward to seeing you on the mat and to share my passion for yoga with you.

Lots of love,
