An adventurous off grid mountain journey into vitality and presence. With Olympian and hard qi gong practitioner Jantine van der Vlist.
For a total of 5 days, you will go back to basics, back to the essence within beautiful Spanish mountains. You will hike for several hours each day and sleep under the stars 3 out of the 4 nights. You will practice movements which are rooted in martial arts and qigong as well as experience multiple meditations. You will hike to the top of a 1400m mountain and on the last day, you have the option to take a dive into the Mediterranean Sea.
1. Increase your level of fitness, flexibility and energy
2. Level up your wellbeing and clarity: get out of your head into the present moment
3. Connect to nature in a way you have never done before
In the period leading up the journey you will have a personal intake with Jantine. Together with Jantine you will create an individualized action plan to support you in the required level of physical and mental fitness for these 5 days. During the journey you will receive a lot of personal attention as the group will be small.
Jantine is a former Olympic beach volleyball player and is a MSc in human movement. As an awareness facilitator she specializes in the extraordinary power of the body and nature as a gateway to presence.
“I finished my professional beach volleyball career at the Olympic Games of 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. After that a new adventure started: Meditation had already played a role in my beach volleyball career. But now, for several years, I created the space to go all in on meditation, qi gong and deep dived into presence. But something was lacking for me. I missed the energy of the outdoors and the physical challenge.
I found my answers and I am enormously excited about it. Three components that had always been a part of my life, when combined, turned out to be the strongest catalyst to flow, joy and physical strength. I have never experienced it this way before. I love sharing my approach with others, and I have seen it works for many of us.
The three components that I combine:
– PRESENCE through meditation
– VITALITY through movements rooted in (hard) qigong and martial arts
– NATURE through off grid outdoor experiences”
