About The Event

Playing in the sun while the deer and owls are watching …

Bodywork & dessert parties,

healthy fresh food prepared by wonderful cooks,

lots of time to play together,

campfires under the stars

and much more…



This week is about relaxing and letting go of your busy life,

getting off the grid (we’re throwing in a digital detox free of charge),

deepening your connections & enjoying nature. 

This is about using the healing and transformational power of AcroYoga

to work it's little miracles in our lives.

Three years ago we had a wonderful first retreat, 

and this year we're very happy and excited 

to offer a thoroughly upgraded summer experience.



This is a week filled with fun & playfulness, and a dedication 

to reach higher skill levels in your AcroYoga practice.

We offer fun & challenges for multiple levels, from absolute beginners

to advanced ninjas.

Expect to upgrade your acrobatic skills, deepen your Thai Massage

knowledge and experience an overall refinement in your movement practice.



We will be joined by two amazing cooks. They will design a week of wonderful (veggie) meals,

spiced with fresh herbs from the garden and infused with lots of love (& acoustic guitar vibes...)



Every day Roald and Marijke will offer:

√ A creative and nourishing morning practice, which can include meditation, gentle breath work,

yin yoga, shamanic silent walks and/or self massage

√ Acro playtime: poses, flows, pops, whips and counterbalances, 

PLUS invitations to get your own creative juices flowing

√ Standing Acrobatics

√ Dedicated time for Therapeutic Flying

√ And of course: Thai Yoga Massage

You will:

√ Upgrade and refine your skill and fun-levels

√ Explore the next steps in your AcroYoga journey, 

with all the time in the world to practice, practice, practice

√ Sink (hang) deeper into relaxation

√ Give & receive healing touch and loving connection

√ Release the stress of busy city life, slow down, and connect 

to a more natural rythm

√ Connect more deeply to the warmth, care and love of the 

Playful People community

√ Be immersed in all the goodness that AcroYoga and nature offer



And there will be more!

We'll be offering a few bonus workshops throughout the program, 

attuned to the needs and wishes of the group.

The exact offering is still a surprise, but things you might encounter include:

Authentic relating

Creative writing

Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping)

Deep breathwork

Nature excursions

Also, you are invited to share your knowledge and experience.

Each one of us brings their own unique talents and gifts, 

and it's beautiful to share those with each other.

Last time for instance, we received a tango workshop and several yoga classes.


Do you have a specific skill you’d like to share?

Feel very welcome to contact us, so we can share your gifts with the group.



Besides AcroYoga you can:

√ Hike in the beautiful forest

√ Swim in the lake 

√ Cool off in the little river nearby

√ Gather around the campfire, play guitar, listen to the owls, sing songs and count stars…

Or just

√ Spend some time reading, writing or having a moment of silence: it’s all possible

√ Follow your own flow: we will do our best to tune in to what the group needs, 

but sometimes you just need something else. 

And that's ok. It's your time, and your retreat.

In the northern part of the Dordogne, in the Parc Naturel Périgord Limousin,

in the middle of unspoiled nature, lies the hamlet of La Pinalie,

surrounded by woods and meadows.

Here the paved road turns into a sandy path into the woods.

Roe deer, foxes, barn owls and lizards are the silent forest dwellers that can still be found here.



Our lovely host Maïté Volpato, Roald's old dance teacher,

owns two beautifully restored farmhouses in the middle of this nature reserve.

She knows everything about the wildlife, adventurous trails

and the best sightseeing spots in the area and loves to share stories about animals and plants.

Take a peek at her beautiful place
