In short: A holiday week in France with stillness, deepening, movement and sparkle: "From mindful to ecstatic".


Explore movement to discover yourself and connect to others. Find your own movement pathways, rediscover the love for dance, and enjoy different qualities and ways to open your body to exciting new experiences.


We will be playing with different themes of dancing and moving, this dance retreat is open and we welcome everyBODY.
No specific dance experience is needed - if you have a body and you can move, than you can also dance.


Participants about Tom:

" Tom is a pleasant, calm person. Felt safe in the group.” (Manon)
''Had a nice weekend. Beautiful as Tom gives the space to let everything be there (experience, no experience, emotions, etc.).'' (Dirkje)

"Tom was very good, sensitive to what was happening in the group and was easy to deal with in the program and to make me feel at ease." (Maarten)


Body & mind holiday: a unique holiday concept for the well-being of body and mind in nature with plenty of space and tranquility. Throughout the week you follow one of the programs with in-depth lessons in a closed group. The non-binding open lessons of the teachers present give the week a versatile and festival-like character. The holiday motto is: "everything is allowed, nothing is mandatory!"
