ACTIVITIES around the Ilma Yoga House.

As a yoga teacher and natural health practitioner I am lucky to live in this beautiful nature area called Gaasperplas, a huge lake built in the 80’s.

This is where I recharge, doing yoga outside, walking my dog, canoeing or biking to the local organic farm. I live to inspire others in living a healthy lifestyle, take more responsibility for your own health, learn about plants and their healing capacity, and enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer us.

2 getaways are available :

Half-day tour

0930-1400 : First we drink a herbal tea or kombucha at my yoga-house/apartment. We introduce ourselves and then we go and get our bikes ready.

We will bike towards Driemond and to the organic farm and stop for a local drink along the way. In Abcoude we look around the small lovely town, do a small stop and bike back to Gaasperplas.

Here if the weather permits it, we get ready to canoe on the lake.

When we get back, a vegetarian lunch will be awaiting us.

Full day tour

0930-1300 : In the morning, we do the “Mother Nature Tour”. After meeting, we walk around the Gaasperplas lake for 1,5 to 2 hours.

At certain spots we can meditate and do some simple yoga exercices, enjoy and experience its beautiful nature. If there is still time, we can swim or canoe on the lake.

1300 : We share a nice vegetarin/vegan meal.

1400-1700 : In the afternoon for the “Organic farm tour”, we bike all together to the organic farm in Abcoude, cycling along the river Gein. The farm also hosts 9 yurts.

We can have a coffee or tea along the way or bring your own.

During the tour I share some yogic breathing exercises and meditation.


If it rains, bring a raincoat and clothes wich are easy to bike or walk in, a towel to sit on, your own drinking water, and an adventourous mood 😉

I will be waiting for you next to the Gaasperplas subway/bus station. From there we start to walk around the lake or bike to Driemond and Abcoude and back to Gaasperplas, depending wich tour you choose. Come and experience our lovely countryside ride just 20 minutes away from the crowded city.
