The Newer You

with Erica Jago

April is our first taste of spring and nothing revitalizes tired bodies and minds more than a weekend spent bathing in the healing spring sun. During our time together we’ll take full advantage of our surroundings and embrace a meditative pace of life.


Every detail of this retreat is a thoughtfully crafted journey for those longing for more space to think and breathe. Enjoy the hot sauna, have group discussions, and come together for classes that explore the beauty of stillness and expansion —as well as vegetarian cuisine, inner wisdom, and the necessary tools to design an intentional life that you love.

Aan De Hei, De Hoorneboeg, Hilversum
This new retreat location "Aan De Hei" near Hilversum is part of Buitenplaats De Hoorneboeg, a magnificent property of 13 hectares with its own forest, ancient winding paths and a picturesque hill in the centre. The restoration of the two historic farms was completed in the spring of 2018 with the intention of creating an inspiring location to host retreats like yoga, mindfulness, meditation, healthy nutrition and philosophy.


The Buitenplaats offers now a vegetarian farm-to-table restaurant with its own garden (opening mid-October), a fine space for training and a place for cultural and social initiatives in a historic villa.

On the property, you can go wander through the winding paths or you can take a walk to the heath ("de Hei") or into the woods. You can stop and listen to the woodpeckers and the squirrels, admire the old trees or the openness of the magical hill in the middle of the property. It is a space to relax and just get away from the hectic pace of our daily lives. To connect with yourself, nature and each other.


The two farmhouses are connected to each other through a corridor and are solely used by the group for the yoga retreat. Both houses overlook the vast heath and lie on the edge of woodland. There is a large yoga room, a library with a fireplace stove, a spacious living room also with a fireplace and a spa with sauna and relaxation area overlooking the heath. There is a choice of single and double rooms on the upper floors, all with private bathroom! There is also a treatment room where you can book a massage from one of our expert therapist available on site.

How to get there?

The Hoorneboeg is very centrally located in the Netherlands. You can very easily reach the venue by car, using the exit Hilversum on the A27. Your visit starts with a peaceful ride through a kilometre long lane of trees along the heath and woodland which opens onto the 13-hectare estate. There is a dedicated parking lot on the side of the property. The rest of the estate is completely car-free and you can reach the farmhouses by a short walk from your car through the forest.

The area is also well served by public transport, with a bus stop at the beginning of the driveway (bus 58 from Hilversum). From here it is a nice walk along the heath and woods, about 10 minutes to the country estate. From the railway station in Hilversum you can also bike 15 minutes to the Hoorneboeg (you can rent an OV-fiets at the railway station or bring your own on the train) or arrange for a taxi.



Starting from €450,- including 2 nights accommodation, all yoga classes, all meals.
