Meet Marije

You host will enhance your amazon experience with daily yoga & meditation

Marije is an experienced dutch yoga instructor who has done many amazing retreats in Portugal and Italy. Marije teaches regularly in Amsterdam and Den Bosch when not on retreat. She has led several Teacher Training for Movements Yoga in Amsterdam. Yoga has been in Marije’s life since 2008 and she has been teaching since 2013: Hot Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and Pilates.

Oftentimes we are tired after a holiday and need another to recover from a week of fun. Don’t worry, this one will definitely be fun but also nourishing for your body. Marije’s classes aim to get you out of the mind and into the body. You use your mind so much in daily life, now for this holiday, let your body and senses take over, to create more balance between body and mind. Marije’s classes are very much fascia-oriented. Our fascia (or connective tissue) is our sensory organ of the body. That means a lot of flow, repetition of movements, working on the elasticity of the body by moving in and out of a stretch, working in ways the body moves naturally: in circles, spirals, different angles, and we’ll even roll off the mat (instead of just working in straight lines, like traditional yoga). Besides flow, we will also do more restorative practices, like meditation, yin yoga, and myofascial release with massage balls. This retreat will let you come back home inside your body, feeling energized with beautiful memories.

Life Aboard

Comfort immersed in the forest

From the moment you get on board this exclusive boat, the crew will warmly welcome you with daily tropical juices and prepare freshly made meals with Amazonian local ingredients and flavors for all dietary preferences.

There are many spots that were made for you to relax on the Zaltana. You can count with a bar on the main deck, a living room on the superior deck, and best for last: the upper solarium deck. Where you can enjoy the best panoramic views, a shower room, tables, and chairs to get tanned.

Amazon Adventure

Discover the worlds’ largest rainforest, its people and rich biodiversity.

The Amazon itself is one of those mystical places where the vast mystery of nature comes just in front of our eyes. What adventurer hasn’t imagined a trip to the Amazon, not only to admire the millennial trees, rich wildlife, and rivers but to enter, in a real sense, the very life spring of the planet?

At this unique immersion, you will hike through the jungle, explore waterfalls, discover plants, wild birds, monkeys, dive with pink dolphins, enjoy freshwater beaches and get to know amazon indigenous communities, their exotic culinary and delighting culture. 

Our intention is that by experiencing the abundance of the forest, you’ll also have the chance to deeply awaken your senses and let the abundance blossom from within. Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime?
