Besides being a host at Finca Serrato, Marie-Claire is a yoga teacher and Shiatsu masseuse. On a daily basis – in the morning and/or in the evening – she teaches various yoga classes like Gentle Flow, Yin Yang Yoga, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra (find out more about the different yoga styles below). Her teaching style is being described as personal, warm and down-to-earth.
The classes are safe and accessible for all ages and levels. If the weather is good the classes will be outside in the fresh air, in case of rain or extreme heat the classes will take place in an atmospheric interior space. The costs for a yoga class including mat rental are 15 euros.

Yin Yang yoga
Best of both worlds! This class starts with a more active ‘yang’ part in which you’ll work on strength and endurance. Halfway we transition into the ‘yin’ part in which we will apply deep stretches to the body and calm down the mind. An ideal mix of effort and ease.
Yin Yoga is a more meditative type of yoga. That’s primarily because we hold the poses for a longer period of time (at least 3 minutes), meaning there is more time to turn inwards. The stretches penetrate deep into the body and are targeted at the meridians, connective tissue and joints.
Yoga Nidra is like the highest art of relaxation and is also known as sleep yoga. The only thing you have to do is laying down and listen to a guided meditation. This meditation will bring you in a state of deep relaxation, in which you will get access to your own inner wisdom.
Next to the daily yoga classes we also organize retreats, mini retreats (one to two days) and thematic yoga- and or meditation sessions. Keep an eye on our news & events for all our activities.
Do you want to organize a retreat yourself, whether it is a yoga, meditation, silence, artist, creative writing, business or whatever retreat? Finca Serrato is bookable by external parties as a retreat location and we’re open for collaborations. For more information please get in touch with us.
