The soul



November 9 – 15 2024, Ibiza, Spain.


A Soul Awakening Retreat

with Saskia van Erven

Amid stunning nature, we embark on a loving and healing experience for the body, mind and soul. We journey to a deeper level of self discovery through the power of movement, breathing, meditation, music, ceremony and shared wisdom. The potency and magic that comes from remembering who you are at your soul level.

Saskia’ intention is to awaken your heart’s desire and to tap into a deeper source of energy and inspiration.  To reconnect to your best self again and so that when you return home you’ re able to share that inner spark you found with everyone around you 

Away from the stresses of daily life, this retreat in the middle of autumn, will be the perfect opportunity  to take a step back and experience the enchanting nature of the magical island of Ibiza.  

Located only 25 minutes from the airport, in a luxurious 400-year-old authentic finca in the middle of a mountain valley.

What others say

“The Soul Journey retreat goes beyond yoga and recharging your batteries. It’s a chance to travel within and rediscover your true self. Saskia lovingly guided us through a carefully crafted program designed to release stress and emotions and tap into a deeper source of energy and inspiration. Together with other amazing women we explored the incredible power of our intuitions and the divine feminine. The heavenly setting on the sacred island of Ibiza provided an oasis of calm and beauty from which to reflect and connect with nature. Each of us was encouraged to embrace our own needs and do what felt good to us, and the week was full of delightful surprises. We came away with everything we hoped to find, and more than we could have imagined”

You should be prepared to get much more than a normal yoga retreat :). Saskia created a wonderful atmosphere and safe space from the beginning, so everyone felt comfortable and could surrender to everything. She also brought people who live on the island to do ceremonies or other activities with us like a hike. This sharing of knowledge and working things out together as a team was just great! Also, we were really on a Soul Journey! Saskia prepared a booklet and each day was based on the Kosas (layers of the mind) so there was a continuous journey throughout the retreat. She is also a liquid breath teacher, which brings a whole new experience. If you want to experience yoga to the fullest, along with great people and an amazing teacher, you should definitely attend one of Saskia’s retreats.

When I think back to this retreat week in Ibiza, I instantly feel joy and gratitude. What a wonderful experience. A week where everything felt perfectly aligned for me. Every detail was carefully thought out with so much attention and love. A beautiful place where you can find tranquility and also enjoy togetherness. Delicious brunches and dinners in all scents, colors, and flavors! Lovely additional hikes and encounters to get to know the other side of Ibiza. And the most important ingredient was Saskia; she created a safe, warm atmosphere where everyone could just be themselves. The structure of the yoga and breath sessions was spot on and brought a lot of depth on various levels. Beautiful music and the power of this group of women made it even more beautiful and intense.

All of this together personally gave me what I needed; recharged, cleansed, and a renewed strong connection with myself, something I easily lose in the everyday hustle and bustle. I came back feeling much lighter and with more openness and gentleness. Super nice! And I can still feel that energy even after a few weeks.

Dear Saskia, thank you ❤

What others say

“Saskia’s Soul Journey Retreat has brought me so much. A deep dive into healing old wounds and patterns and experiencing an all-encompassing love for myself, other beautiful souls, and nature. All of this from a safe space. The balance between Saskia and Cora was perfect, and they complemented each other beautifully with their authentic selves. The location is perfect, and the food prepared by Nathalia is heavenly. For me, the retreat is life-changing.”

Grace Bruinenwould

I really needed a time-out to recharge my batteries without kids & daily life around. Going alone on such a trip was new for me but came with so much ease trusting I’d be amongst a lovely group of people and choosing me first and foremost. I’m not a big Yogi nor spiritually active but was simply open to take it all in, at my own pace. The week has been exactly what I needed and more. From a beautiful, special location to a well-crafted program to enjoy with the group, important me-time and especially such a warm & caring host & teacher Saskia to share the experience with. Highly recommended!

Nastasja Tennhardt

In the fall of 2023, I attended ‘The Soul Journey’ in Ibiza. It was my first retreat, and I had little experience with yoga and breathwork. The location of the retreat is fantastic, as is the chef Nathalia who provided amazing meals throughout the week. Saskia creates a very pleasant and safe atmosphere where you feel completely free to open up to all (for me, new) experiences and go through your own process. The sessions and activities are very well coordinated, enhancing each other. For me, it was a truly special experience. I learned a lot, and new worlds were opened up for me, with the most significant being my inner world, which I reconnected with during this week. Highly recommended!
