Geraldine Gobert

Geraldine believes that each and everyone is their own best teacher but they can use guidance in making the mind fit for their purpose. She sees herself as a guide on your path, rather than a teacher. After years of practice, she followed an intensive teacher training course from the Institute of Mindfulness in Belgium. She was taught by David Dewulf, Mark Williams, Christina Feldman, John Peacock, Chris Germer, Kristin Neff as well as monks in various monasteries across Europe and Asia.

Anna

(Hatha Yoga)

Anna is a certified Hatha yoga teacher and teaches slow flow classes with a strong foundation in classic, alignment-based Iyengar and Yin yoga. Her style is soft and gentle as it is powerful. Anna's journey on the yoga mat has brought her closer to herself and opened her heart to her inner truth. Oh and besides that, she's a gentle and loving human being, nature and peace lover, and a great inspiration!

Geraldine De La Vigne

Geraldine has been working as a holistic massage therapist for the past five years in Brussels and on different retreats around the world.

Testimonials 9

  • Sylvie R.

    A Lotus Seed website - Heart Radiant Retreat

    Having avoided being confronted with myself and my feelings for most of my life this week was exactly what I needed and maybe subconsciously looked for: A week of bliss yet intensive work on myself. The retreat was excellent in every way from beginning till end: the organization, the duration, the remote location in a stunning environment, the delicious and nutritious food, the daily yoga sessions with Anna’s soothing voice, the option to get a Reiki massage as well as the love and care from all the people at the retreat center and in the group. I came with the idea to take a week off for some relaxation, slowing down and disconnecting from my daily life, including the Internet. I returned more connected to myself and with the realization that I can create my own “safe haven”. I had hoped to find answers to questions I never really dared to ask and left with insights about myself that go beyond these questions. I learned to accept myself the way I am and that this is not the same as not trying to improve and grow every day. Thank you for everyone, who helped, guided or just surrounded me during this journey! It would have not been possible without you.

    Amazing retreat. Felt so relaxed. Everybody should do this once in a lifetime to stop your busy life for a week and go to your inner self and listen what it has to say.

  • Fleur N.

    A Lotus Seed website - Heart Radiant Retreat and Mindfulness Retreat

    I had the feeling no words could describe how I had experienced my first mindfulness retreat. After the retreat I actually physically felt my heart had grown and I'm accepting my thoughts and feelings with more openness and gentleness. I'm very grateful for this experience.

  • An H.

    A Lotus Seed website - Heart Radiant Retreat and Mindfulness Retreat

    I had the most wonderful week in Portugal. I came with a troubled mind and left a happier person with a lot of clear insights and tools, not only to deal with difficult feelings, but also to better appreciate the beautiful moments. This week opened up my mind and my heart. I have met some beautiful people and the combination of morning yoga, intensive mindfulness sessions and time to relax and let everything sink in is really nice. Also the beautiful location and the tasty food make this week absolutely recommendable.

    This week gave me some great insights into what I am dealing with and gave me time and space to explore them further. I greatly enjoyed being there.

  • Katia Gobert

    A Lotus Seed website

    On my first retreat, I enjoyed the space of breathing, the strength of feeling and acceptance, the freedom of being, the joy of silence, the beauty of nature, the experience of self-compassion, and I feel very grateful for it.

  • Ineke Vanobbergen

    A Lotus Seed website

    The meditation week has started a whole process inside me. My awareness increased. I'm noticing more my emotions and thoughts. I learned giving space to emotions and experienced the usefulness of it. I learned to find peace.

  • Matteo Tangi

    A Lotus Seed website

    A Lotus Seed retreat has been an experience that I access with my memory with pleasure, indulging in the soft and warm sensation that it left in my body and my mind. I’m deeply thankful to Geraldine for her work and for her clear and loveful space holding.

  • Amaryllis Laenen

    A Lotus Seed website

    Following a training with Geraldine, I learned useful tools and interesting insights which I'm still applying on a daily basis. She has impact and inspires and admire her unprejudiced and milde attitude. Now I stand with more attention and focus in life.
