We are Matteo & Liesbet. Our paths crossed in the summer of 2019 in Belgium. Being beautiful unique as we are, we invite you to read a little bit more about us below.
Hi! I wish to live a life full of adventures, joy and wisdom grounded in being.
I worked as a waiter and managed restaurants and pubs, as a croupier in Casino´s and as Supervisor for poker events. Since i discovered meditation my life took a beautiful turn where i realized that a change was needed. A couple of years ago I quit my previous way of living and begun to adventure around in different conscious communities to learn yoga, holistic living and supporting where was needed: cooking, cleaning, housekeeping, building, gardening, meditation and yoga. I love many things like reading, cooking, singing and being connected with nature, animals and friends.
Hello! I am Liesbet and I love walking in nature & enjoying the sound of silence. I feel a strong calling to explore the depths of the Self and to get to know who I really am. I want to live with an open heart and reside in a healthy environment to stay connected with myself and my environment. 2019 was a very challenging year for my health and it showed me to change my lifestyle to a more conscious way of living. From my understanding of yoga, I try to share my presence in the world.
I am interested in yoga, meditation, relaxation, Ayurveda, holistic therapies, cooking, plants, gardening, nature, animals, hiking, music, singing , shamanism, ... and want to learn more about all of this. At the moment, travelling mode is on. I chose to quit my job at the end of 2020 and dedicate myself fully to a conscious life tuning into my inner strength. Together with Matteo, I want to learn, experience, practice and live yoga.

Housekeeping in communities: helping cleaning and coordinating the cleaning duties (also buying any necessity, ranging from food to maintenance), coordinating the kitchen (volunteers, orders, organization, meals etc.), making strategies and plans for a smooth running of the center, welcoming guests and be a point of reference for any needs.

My wish is to understand the mind, body & soul. Yoga has brought me a lot of understanding. I realize that this is only the tip of the iceberg. I feel to dive very deep in the depths to explore more.
