    Location was very good

    Accomodation.It is not like retreat centre. It a appatment. livingroom and meditation place is the same ,there is no separate room for meditation. The appatment is full of things . Need to be little more neat.That house cant be called retreat meditation house it is like a holiday house.

    If magic were a place it would surely be here. The space itself is stunning and the location is even more breathtaking. The walking and bike trails are along the water and are where I had some of my most meaningful moments. This is a sanctuary, throughout my entire visit I felt welcomed and loved and though the Universe picked this place especially for me to see. Her flat mate even took the time to teach me how to play the didgeridoo!!! My bedroom was stunning, my first ever massage was so relaxing, and the yoga was perfect for my skill level. If you want a magical experience while still having your own space and time to reflect and grow... then this is the place for you.

    Everything was PERFECT

    Meeting Ilma was like meeting a new friend. Nothing was too much trouble, she had asked questions before our arrival and had gone the extra mile to have things for us that she thought would enhance our stay.

    The location is idyllic and just being there feels relaxing and therapeutic without even practicing any yoga.

    I really liked the balance of time spent practicing and time to explore the lake & further afield- it made it feel like a real mini break away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.

    Ilma has such a warm & friendly way that she puts you at ease straight away. I feel Ilma touches anyone who she comes into contact with in such a positive way - you feel good inside!

    I would love to return even just to walk around the lake every day & have "me" time.

    Only thing that was a little out of my comfort zone was sharing toilet & bathroom facilities but actually the whole set up & how you are made to feel like part of a community soon allayed any concerns I had. I just think people need to be aware you are "sharing" the space with others so no misunderstandings.

    I needed some peace and tranquility so I decided to go on a short yoga retreat. Luckily for me I chose Ilma Yoga House. I could not have made a better choice. Ilma fetched me at the airport and since our first encounter I felt at home and at ease. Everything about Ilma and Ilma House is magical.There is a feeling of love and peace everywhere. My room was beautifully decorated and so cozy.I even had an angel blowing a kiss at me on my window sill, which I found so cute and I had a breathtaking view from my window.

    Nothing was too much for Ilma.She prepared tasty homemade salads and juices. I also enjoyed the relaxing massages and meditation sessions. She is a remarkable, kindhearted and sincere person.I will always treasure the time I spent there.It was also a very healing time for my soul.

    Thank you Ilma for making such a difference in my life .It was like being home ,away from home.Keep up the good work and good luck for the future.

    I very much enjoyed my time in Amsterdam. I stayed for 7 days with Ilma in her apartment, which is about 20 metro ride away from the city center. The apartment is near a large lake and in nature. It was so calm and peaceful.I mostly made my own juice, though we went to the market together. I drank juice the entire week because that was my personal choice. Several mornings we went to the lake and did some stretches and a little meditation.I spent time in Amsterdam for several days (there are lots of fresh juice places around). I went with Ilma one day when she had an appointment and was easily able to take a bus and go to the beach and then return via the train.There is a sauna, about a 30-minute bike ride through great scenery. The lake is beautiful and I walked around it on several occasions. One day, I went to Amsterdam to a free yoga class at a studio there.It was extremely restful and relaxing for me. I spent a lot of time outdoors, and there are plenty of places to bike and walk in nature. Ilma is very warm and hospitable. She made me feel at home. The only thing that would have made it better is having more formal yoga classes and more time spent together doing meditation sessions.

    Afgelopen week ben ik 3 dagen bij Ilma en Jeroen geweest. Wat een warme, vriendelijke mensen in een huiselijke omgeving! Ze hebben mij kennis laten maken met voornamelijk yoga, een klein beetje mediteren en wat informatie gegeven over de interessante Ayurveda leer. Voor mij een bijzondere ervaring waar ik zeker meer mee wil gaan doen!

    I have fully enjoyed time I have spent in Ilma Yoga House. Ilma is wonderful and amazing woman, full of positive energy and inner harmony. I have found a peaceful rest in her house during my quite hard life period.

    The house is located in beautiful and calm area, covered with trees, with nice view on the lake. I have enjoyed yoga lessons near beautiful lake and introductory workshop of Acru Yoga & thai massage. If you want and need to calm down, to find inner peace and harmony, wake up with bird´s singing, refuel energy, relax your body&mind&soul and start to think positively, this is the best choice for you, so I fully recommend to spend a yoga retreat in Ilma´s Yoga House which I rate with 10 point of 10 (the highest rate).

    My stay there fulfilled my expectations, moreover I have found amazing friend and I am grateful for that.
