In the evening we will either start the grill, cook or fire up the pizza oven. All this happens with a little help from you. We will divide you into kitchen teams, which will support our kitchen fairy.

Where do the yoga sessions take place?

We like to be outside in the dunes, on the meadows around the campsite or on the beach whenever the weather permits it. But we also have a wonderful room 800 meters from the campsite where we can practice regardless of the weather or for more intense sessions. The room is located in the Tenellaplas Visitor Center right in the dune sanctuary, which in addition to our practice space also has an interesting exhibit about life in the dunes and surrounding beaches.

Do I need to have yoga experience?

No. You are welcome as a complete beginner! If you have been practicing for a while, that’s wonderful too! We take into account the individual needs of the group and offer variations of yoga postures according to your needs.

What is Yoga?
Yoga means the path to unity. It is originally a purely spiritual way to reach enlightenment through meditation. Breathing techniques and postures (asanas) are tools for meditation.

Today, body-oriented yoga is in the foreground and picks us head people up where we are.

Yoga today knows a wealth of styles. Some are physically very active and demanding, others focus on very correct execution of the postures, some want to bring especially the energy in the body to flow or the focus is on long postures with many relaxation phases.

Susi and Caro, offer you two yoga styles: Vinyasa and Hartha.

Vinyasa yoga means that breath flow and movements are in harmony. This means that Vinyasa Yoga is more moving and that many asanas are strung together for a certain sequence. You get into a flow, are physically challenged and sometimes forget about time and space.

Hartha Yoga, on the other hand, focuses on a more or less fixed sequence of postures held a little longer and separated by short periods of relaxation or mindfulness. It trains you excellently to relax in challenging asanas. Special emphasis is placed on breathing exercises at the beginning and a longer relaxation phase at the end of the session.

How do the yoga units work?

The breathing exercises at the beginning of each yoga session have the goal of forgetting everyday life and coming to rest. This is followed by the sun salutation, a series of holdings consisting of several coordinated asanas that are performed dynamically in rhythm with the breath. The sun salutation stimulates the cardiovascular system, mobilizes the joints and warms up the muscles. Other asanas follow, such as the Warrior, which strengthens the leg, shoulder and back muscles and promotes balance. Each asana addresses different muscle groups so that the entire body is trained. We pay special attention to the muscle groups that are particularly stressed in kitesurfing (e.g. core stability). The class ends with deep relaxation exercises that will leave you feeling rested, clear and fresh.

In the morning and afternoon, the focus of the yoga sessions will vary. So in the morning we will have a shorter activating session to get us fit for the day on the kite. In the evening we will focus on strengthening, stretching, relaxation and centering.

And once you can test your balance with our SUP Yoga session!

SUP (Stand Up Paddle) Yoga:

Once a week we go to the Brielse Meer, an inland lake not far from our camp, for yoga with the SUPs. We start with a short introduction to Stand Up Paddling. ow do I hold the paddle, how do I turn right and left and how do I keep my balance? Once you are safely on the board, we enjoy paddling along the shore. At our “yoga spot” we will tie up the SUPs. Who stays on the board with all the balance postures? And who can relax well on the shallow rocking SUP? Find out yourself!

Isn’t kitesurfing your thing?

You are welcome even if kitesurfing doesn’t knock you off your feet and you prefer to leave this to your partner or friends! Yoga Only is also possible, of course! If you want to experience other things besides relaxation in our camp or on the beach, then look what is possible in our area.

You can already kite and do not want to book a kite course but still go on the water with the group and participate in yoga, then the Yoga Only tariff applies to you!
