You will stay at a beautiful coaster which is rebuilt to be a yogaboat and is named Andere Boeg. The boat is rebuilt totally sustainable and is the most sustainable passengers ship in Europe. This ship is 55 meter long and more than 7 meter width and has lovely light, silence yoga studio, 11 comfortable cabins with top-quality mattresses.
This ship also has a beautifully designed bar, a modern kitchen, nicely decorated living room, comfortable bathrooms, and two spacious decks. With the powerful energy of the water, yet firm and impressively stable as the earth (practicing headstands, trees or any other balancing poses will not be more difficult than on the shore.
This yoga retreat offers yoga lessons that form a challenge for advanced yogis and are also well doable for beginners. Everybody practices the yoga taking into account the (im)possibilities of his or her body. You will notice that by doing the exercises and poses, you become stronger and more flexible, but you do not need to be strong or flexible to start yoga or to join the retreat. Above all, it is about relaxing deeply this retreat: let go of all the stress and tension, further and further, until only pure relaxation remains.
Enjoy all the peace and the nourishing organic, vegetarian and primarily delicious meals. Enjoy the silence in the light yoga hall or chat with your fellow guests in the nicely decorated living room and enjoy the view a bit higher above the water. Next to the program, there is sufficient time to have a nice relaxing walk, take a nice little extra bit of sleep or relax in your own way.

Marloes van der Kamp
Certified teacher with more than 10 years of experience. I have been interested in yoga, personal and spiritual development since I was young. The renovation of Andere Boeg brought me enormous deepening and taught me how to be confident and how to surrender. Being confident and trusting the life that gives you what is needed. Even if it's difficult. Meditation is part of my life, and that is also what I would like to give to my students. To encourage them to not only meditate in the weekend, separate from daily life, but to achieve more that that; to integrate meditation in their daily lives.
We can be moored in Wageningen, Gorinchem, Arnhem or Nijmegen, all have their own special beauty and atmosphere. The organiser will let you know as of 1 month in advance where the boat will be moored for your weekend.
Nijmegen is the eldest city of the Netherlands. From here, you can walk to the quiet banks at the other side of the river Waal, to lay down at the beach in Lent or make a walk in the nature of Lent, along the banks of the river. You can also nicely stroll at the promenade of Nijmegen with its cozy terraces and beautiful views. Nijmegen has a lot of nice little shops and and a variety of old and modern architecture. Wageningen is a cozy student city with beautiful nature. In the harbor, you can see the loading and unloading of the ships. From the ship, you are at walking distance from the wetlands, a nice area of nature along the river Rhine. A little further, there is a beautiful botanical garden and if you want to walk a little longer, you can walk into the forest. Lots of nature to inspire you … and if you walk from the ship to the other side, you can enjoy the little city of Wageningen. With a few minutes you are in the heart of the city with its big church and surrounding square with terraces.
Gorinchem is an old fortress town. You can enjoy a walk on the old walls that used to protect the city and also in Gorinchem there are wetlands and of course beautiful views on the river. We are moored in a canal in Gorinchem, on walking distance of the city with its big church, city hall and terraces.
Arnhem is situated along the river Rhine. In the city itself you will find impressive trees, delightful parks and magnificent country estates. There are also beautiful green avenues in and around the city center.
