About the event

Live Your Light!

Return to yourself during this four-day Souls Yoga Journey retreat, at the beautiful wooded location of Venwoude in the Netherlands. Experience a deep connection with your soul, your core and the pure source of love that you are. Break through blockages and feel how to trust your intuition by landing in your body and sinking into your heart.

This retreat is about fully embracing (and living!) your light.

We invite you to explore what authentic living means to you. So that you can live your life in a way that brings you fulfillment and joy, being fully present in your life. Able to embrace love to its fullest.

Together we explore our inner depths. We explore the language of the body and the language of the light. You learn to hold yourself even more in silence, in emotions, thoughts and sensations, so that there is room for inner peace, insight, intuition and heart-fueled creation.

And of course there will be plenty of time for free time, laughing together, eating pure and delicious food and enjoying everything that is.


Country Estate Venwoude is a beautiful location in the middle of the Netherlands, situated in the woods. It is known for its extraordinarily beautiful atmosphere, nature and loving care, the simple yet high-quality accommodation options, the beautiful spaces and the amazing vegetarian and organic meals.

The Souls Journey Retreat takes place in the beautiful bright Tormentil/Wederik room.

We, José and Maike, will guide and support you on your souls journey during the retreat. In groups and on an individual level when the situation asks for it. Four years ago we met on a Yin Yoga & Reiki Retreat in Spain. José was the teacher and Maike the participant. We instantly connected, our energies complement each other beautifully.

José de Groot

José is a yin yoga teacher and empowering guide. Her mission is to bring you back in contact with feeling, with your own strength and to live from there. Through feeling you learn to know and embrace your own uniqueness and to trust your own body and inner voice. You are unique, comparing with or imitating others is pointless. When you live from your potential, freedom, joy and healing arise. Then there are no more obstacles or frameworks that limit you, only possibilities to do things differently, your way.

You can follow training and workshops with José in which you learn tools for yourself and/or others with which you can empower, heal and come home to yourself. Or you can experience empowering healing for yourself in José’s yoga classes, private sessions and retreats.

To bring you in touch with feeling and your unique self, José uses Yin Yoga and other forms of Yoga, Meditation, Reiki, Practical Anatomy, Chinese Medicine and Breathing exercises.  

Maike van Ees

Maike is an energetic body worker and healer. With the work she shares in her studio in Amsterdam she brings you back to your core, in touch with yourself, grounded in your body, in your power, so you can embrace your light.

During a ‘forced’ – given – period of self-healing, Maike opened into the gifts meant for her to share in this life. Through her hands and presence, she reads your body and receives where your mind is not aligned with your body and your life is not aligned with your soul. Maike works completely intuitively, guided by the universal energy of love and light, empowered by the teachings of meridians, chakras, reiki, shiatsu, hypnosis, polarity practice, feminine vs masculine energy and eastern medicine.

Some specializations Maike works with are: Energetic Massage & Healing, depth meditation, Souls Journey mentor program, Cocoa Ceremonies, Radiant Women circles, Intuitive living and soulful movement. Learn more about Maike see
