Jane Bakx, Yoga, Meditation & Breath Teacher 500 E-RYT

Jane is an E-RYT500 yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance certified) from the Netherlands. She lived most of her life in Amsterdam and worked as a producer in advertising. She has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and teaching for over 5 years. After her two yoga studies (both in India), she decided to leave her job in advertising and follow her heart and passion for yoga full-time. Since then she has been teaching all over the world and organizing yoga teacher training courses and retreats. Jane’s home base is now on Bonaire, a small island in the Caribbean Netherlands.
Yoga for Jane is mainly about connecting with yourself; with your body, mind and heart. Yoga teaches you to listen to your body more. The focus in Jane’s classes is therefore on making that connection with yourself and at the same time on gaining strength and flexibility.
She mainly teaches Vinyasa yoga and Yin yoga. Both styles in her own way. In her Vinyasa classes you move quite slow so that you can really get into the poses, feel your body and build a lot of strength. During the Yin classes you go deep inside.
Jane also has an enormous passion for the human body, anatomy and physiology. You will notice this in her instructions during her yoga classes. During the teacher training courses it is very clear too as Jane is  super happy to share her passion and teach her students everything about the human body, related to yoga, in an enthusiastic, clear and fun way.

Breathwork & Yoga in Nature

We will do some of the breathwork, yoga and meditation sessions outside. The place has a nice garden and a yoga deck.

Outdoor sessions add a different dimension to your practice and pare yoga down to its original link with nature.  Yoga means ‘union,’ and when it’s practiced outdoors it seems like the union with nature, humanity, and the universe is truly felt.


Our Sound Chef Tiziana Santi will give a special meditation session.

A Sound Journey/Bath is a gentle, yet powerful, experience for the mind and body. Simply listen to the harmonious, overtone-rich sounds of the singing bowls they are pleasant, calming, and relaxing!

What is a Sound Journey or Sound BaAfter a short Introduction to how Sound Vibration works in the body and setting of intentions, the experience begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position. Through the tapping of Tibetan Bowls a deep sense of relaxation is enduced whilst guided by Tiziana´s voice and anchored guiding relaxation with focus on the breath. The experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession. The sounds are created by a variety of overtone-emitting instruments including Tibetan Bowls (using Peter Hess® Sangha Bowls) and Crystal Singing Bowls, Ocean drum, Tam Tam Gong, Phase drum, Monochord, chimes, and voice.

A sound bath is an opportunity to explore what a meditative state is and how it feels. For this reason, it can be beneficial for both beginners of meditation and also experienced meditators. The Intention of the experience is to invite deep rest and relaxation, reset, grounding, balancing, centering and connecting with our “inner wisdom” exploring self-inquiry and self-discovery. A Sound Bath experience is unique and each participant will experience different sensations, emotions depending on how open they are to the experience.


In the area you can do amazing hikes.  We are surrounded by this beautiful landscape of mountains with views over a lake and the ocean.  For anyone who would like to experience a breathtaking hike in complete tranquility we organize a special walking meditation.

A walking meditation is a form of meditation in action. In walking meditation we use the experience of walking as our focus. We become mindful of our experience while walking, and try to keep our awareness involved with the experience of walking. A walking meditation is an excellent way of developing our ability to take awareness into our ordinary lives. During the walk you will experience everything around you very intensely. The colors, sounds, the sun and the wind. It is a very pleasant and special experience. During our walk we will stop under these thousand year old olive trees and do a special breathwork  & qigong session.


Conscious Connected Breathwork or Rebirthing 

If you are familiar with breathwork, you have probably heard of the conscious connected breath.

It has different names like: conscious energy breathing (CEB),  Conscious Connected Breathwork (CCB) , Rebirthing Breathwork and other names.

Rebirthing Breathwork’s predominant characteristic is simplicity. It begins with you lying down, relaxing and just breathing. It uses an easy to follow breathing technique called ‘conscious connected circular breathing’ that is guided by a trained Breathwork facilitator.

The process of long and careful attention to the circular breath technique exposes multiple layers of inhibitions and unconscious patterns of defenses that have developed from birth and throughout your life that have blocked your pleasure and aliveness. You can neutralize and integrate whatever surfaces by simply breathing through it even as you maintain present awareness and know that you are safe.

It is a very special experiernce. We will have a special night when we will do this together on beautiful music.


One of the adys we will head off to the beach for some nice beach yoga and some relax time.

Location El Canuelo

Stay in a beautiful little hamlet with beautiful lake & ocean views
