Leading This Week


Maija Klamer, from the Netherlands, joins our team again to teach our first two weeks in Sperlonga.

With a background in dance and body language, movement is a natural way for Maija to express herself and to understand people. Maija was inspired by various international teachers such as Shiva Rea, Simon Park and David Lurey and went on to complete over three hundred hours of Vinyasa yoga teacher training in Amsterdam in 2010.

At the beginning of 2015 Maija stayed in a Tantra Yoga ashram in Goa where she fell even more deeply in love with yoga and the rich Tantric culture. Back in the Netherlands she started studying Tantric-Ayurvedic body-work, which has deepened her understanding of the body, mind and emotional structures. She is currently training at the Tantra Academy in Amsterdam in Ayurvedic Abhyanga Massage and Marma points.

Maija says:
“I feel it is a great privilege to be able to help people relax, energize and open their hearts to the beauty of existence. In my yoga classes we will work with different yoga styles and techniques such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin-Yang, Tantra, chakras and meditation.
Instead of just focusing on getting stronger and more flexible, I would like to invite you to feel that you are already perfect as you are. From this point of self-acceptance and compassion, we can feel more free to explore our possibilities and whatever comes up in the moment.”

As well as teaching yoga, Maija will also be offering relaxing Ayurvedic massages during her weeks at Sunflower Retreats.

For me yoga is all about the experience of freedom, love, space and grounding.
It is about connecting seemingly opposite energies and returning to our true nature. Anything that we give our focus, will grow.
During this lovely retreat we can give to ourselves all of the loving and nurturing that we sometimes forget in our busy daily lives.
