'Sand, Sea, Self-Care' Yoga Intensive - Zandvoort
A yoga and self-care weekend retreat at the beach for women.
Today’s fast-paced society often leaves us little time for restoration, relaxation and rejuvenation. This is why taking time to unplug and (re)connect with yourself is so important. This long weekend in Zandvoort, you’ll be invited to do just that.
You’ll be led through delicious yoga classes, explore your boundaries in a gentle way, learn more about Ayurveda and how this ancient philosophy can help you to make the best choices for you in each moment and learn all about self-care in a practical and fun way.
Staying at the beautiful Lichthuis in Zandvoort, you get to enjoy the silence while being only a 10-minute walk away from the beach. The comfortable accommodation in this special old church offers you all you need: a terrace to relax on, a sauna to enjoy, delicious meals that will nourish you and more!
In your free time, you get to enjoy walks on the beach, the company of other women, and moments where you simply don’t have to do anything! Irina will offer all classes in English

Irina’s journey into yoga began on a grey and cloudy day in an even greyer city, many years ago. As she stepped on the mat that first time, she knew she had found her path. She fell in love with the practice and it quickly became a way of life. That’s when she knew she wanted to share this love for yoga with others. She traveled the world to study with amazing teachers and completed several in-depth teacher trainings in hatha, vinyasa, Anusara, restorative and yin yoga.
Through the years, she created a unique style of teaching that’s diverse, intense yet gentle at the same time. Most importantly: her love for yoga and life is tangible in each class she teaches.
Besides being an inspiring yoga teacher, Irina is a gifted holistic coach as well. She incorporates her knowledge of Ayurveda, Tantra, myths, and philosophy in her classes and coaching sessions - and by doing so, she always manages to inspire those around her to take better care of themselves.
Irina teaches online at Ekhart Yoga and writes for several yoga magazines, such as the Dutch and French ‘Yoga Magazine’. She has written two well-received yogic cookbooks: ‘Kopstand in de Keuken’ (Headstand in the Kitchen, only available in Dutch) and ‘With a Pinch of Yoga’.
Het Lichthuis is a hidden gem in Zandvoort and offers a sacred space where you can come to relax deeply and recharge. Built with care, eye for detail and comfort in mind, it is the perfect location for boutique retreats.
The accommodation consists of 6 beautiful apartments, each apartment sleeps 2 to 5 people. All rooms have single beds or a comfortable sleeping couch.
Each apartment has a beautiful living room, bathroom and kitchen.
Shared facilities that are available are a sauna and sunbathing terrace. The house is situated a 10 minute walk away from the beach and 8 minutes from the train station.
