NEW 2024

Releasing Tension & Creating Safety in the Body


Join me at Casa di Yoga in Puglia, Italy!

Yoga in itself can feel like therapy! On this retreat Suze will combine yoga asana classes with actual therapeutic practices, creating a powerful and healing combination. Start your day with a vinyasa yoga class that opens your body and connects you to your breath. In the afternoon sessions, you will explore body-oriented therapeutic practices that allow you to release tension from your body, regulate your nervous system, and process experiences on both a mental and physical level. 

You are invited to (re)connect to your body and through your body remember yourself, your desires, and your needs as we explore a variety of practices together. 

'Suze is one of the most experienced yoga teachers in the Netherlands with a background in psychology and Yoga Nidra with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. She is a well-liked teacher with a gift for making the most complex subjects easy to understand and to put them into practice in real life.'

Montserrat G. Mukherjee

The Practices

Vinyasa yoga, meditation, and pranayama will be combined with somatic practices like somatic experiencing, TRE® (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises), and Yoga Nidra.


You will learn about the functioning of your nervous system, how it relates to your sense of well-being, and how to regulate it.

Whether you are just looking for a way to create a more comfortable and intimate relationship with yourself and your body or have some specific experiences that need more attention, this retreat will offer you a safe space and the practices to take some steps toward connection and healing.

Dates & Details

The Accommodation

You will be staying at an elegant and homely Masseria surrounded by vineyards and olive trees in the small town of Salice Salentino. The house consists of six spacious rooms, each with its own bathroom, underfloor heating, king-size beds (which can be separated into two single beds) and fine cotton linens, a salty water pool, and 2 public toilets. We share our meals in the large kitchen and the yoga classes will take place in a separate in- or outdoor space depending on the weather. 

The Teacher

Suze (Msc) has a background in Psychology and is a certified Yoga teacher and Yoga Nidra Facilitator, teaching yoga since 2006. Suze is also a certified Body Oriented Trauma Therapist and Orthomolecular Therapist. She combines this with specific practices like TRE® (Trauma Release Exercises), Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®), and Family Constellations.

Suze strongly believes that the holistic approach of combining yoga with different

disciplines in the field of psychology, nutrition, and trauma therapy, offer all the

tools we need to not only find inspiration but to gain insight and find the healing

that can alter the course of our lives.

Her yoga teaching style is a combination of challenging asana sequences, focus on alignment, deep embodiment, and self-healing. The challenging parts of the practice are met with humor and clear guidance that keeps you safe and grounded. Suze's yoga nidra and meditation classes offer you the relaxation that goes beyond just physical relaxation and allows healing to take place on a deeper level.
