How we will retreat

A welcome circle kicks off your 5-day Yoga Retreat. Following that, you’ll ease into a gentle landing session, incorporating slow-flow yoga postures and unwinding movements to help you relax after your travels.

The mornings set the day. A combination of breathwork, meditation and movement will align your energy. A 2,5 h Yoga Session which includes all long needed stretches and gives you enough space to open your body slowly.

Make the most of the breaks between sessions to savor delicious, nourishing, and vegetarian meals. Connect with fellow participants, join group excursions to explore Egmond, or simply relax in our community spaces. Take some personal time to unwind in the gardens and jot down your latest insights in a journal.

After a long break, we continue. We take some time to connect with each other, followed by more movement focusing on special areas in your body. Shoulders, hips and your lower back. In this afternoon sessions, you will also learn about your emotional holding patterns and how to really let go of tension.

On the final morning, we’ll review all the things you learned over the past four days. In the afternoon, there’s a concluding unwinding session before we wrap up your retreat with a closing circle. Following the retreat, the sauna will be open, so be sure to allocate enough time before you travel back home.

What will happen to you joining the retreat?

By entering an altered environment that reduces external distractions, you can become present, and as a result, rest for your entire system becomes possible.

The Humaniversity is my 2nd Home because of the inspiration and the authenticity that I experience at this place.

The community is cooking for you. There will be food from all different parts of the world, depends on who runs the kitchen.

Shed off everything that is unnatural and pulls a lot of energy out of your system. So when you come back home you strive for the new projects in your life. 

No alcohol, no smoking, no social media, no phones. Why? Because every distraction is taking away energy from being your most authentic self.

What my students say



“One of the most important things I learned on this retreat was the importance of self-acceptance and spending time with yourself and your feelings. Another valuable aspect I took away from this retreat is the ability to create space. 

Naresh was an absolute inspiration in this process. His gentle manner and the loving support he provided to us participants was incredibly enriching.


Yes, absolutely. Iyengar yoga allows you to cater to your needs. With slow movements and precise alignment, even if you’ve never done yoga before, you can make the best out of it.

In the Iyengar System, an advanced yogi is someone who is able to stay present with what’s going on in the current moment. Iyengar provides long-held postures to allow more subtle energies to surface and be experienced. A wonderful feeling if you are already experienced in yoga or bodywork.

If you plan to stay at the Humaniversity, it’s best to inform us beforehand so that we can notify the kitchen and take care of your needs.

Trust your intuition and go for the first good feeling. I will contact you after to find out if any changes are required. 

I am naresh

A dedicaded Iyengar teacher since a decade. 

Suffering from severe back and shoulder pain my own body was my best teacher and the reason to dig deep into the Iyengar System. In 2019 when I opened up to emotional layer of my being by living and working in an therapeutic community, I understand the holding patterns in my body and found techniques to release that tension. 

My biggest passion is now to share my experiences with you to make the world a kinder place.

For me Yoga is not about performance is about being ok with who you are.

this is how i teach yoga

My yogaclasses are a safety zone, to express, move and feel alive.

Slow execution, various tools, and precise instructions give you enough time to practice the positions “correctly.” The influences of your emotions are considered so that you learn to listen to your body. Letting go means trusting in your abilities. Where you are right now is exactly the right place.
