Yoga Festival Haarlem 2014: BE MY DATE.

yoga haarlem festival



So, I wrote about Yoga Festival Haarlem before, giving away two sets of tickets.

Now I’m asking you if you wanna be my yoga date.

No awkward slow dancing and putting out because I bought you a Coconut water, promise. Just a fun day with yoga and my company.



(These two pictures summarize the two main elements of my personality perfectly)

I know I’m not as cuddly with you as I could be. But I’m really appreciative of you. This is how I feel about you whether you like it or not, and whether I show it or not.

I just checked and there’s on average fucking 10,000+ of you weirdos reading along. WHAT. I love interacting with you on Twitter, your comments and emails, and meeting you guys is a total joy. Whether you’re a lurker or a more active reader: HI, YOU’RE CHERISHED, BYE.

Everything I do, reading self help books, doing yoga and fucking around with time techniques? I would do all of that on my own accord; it’s just what I do for fun, website or not.

But thanks to my blog and you guys I get some more opportunities to do cool stuff, and I love that. I think that’s so cool, and humbling.  I get to do what I love a little more often. Which is, I don’t know, cool. (Can you tell I’m getting uncomfortable?)

Ok enough showing vulnerability and emotion and general humanity. I’m done. Moving on.

That’s why I want to take one of you with me to the Yoga Festival on the 6th of July.  I get to go because of my blog, and it’s only fair that I take someone who made that possible with me. I wish I could take all of you but I can only take one (for now…one day…)!

Does this sound like something you’d like? Please read on and comment.


– Be available on the 6th of July, which is a Sunday.

– Not be a raging psychopath who intends to murder me while I’m trying to have a nice day out.

– Have at least some sort of an inkling of an idea who I am (not because I’ve having diva issues, I just want to take an actual reader with me)

– Be not be repulsed by me.

– Have interest in yoga. You don’t need to have experience or flexibility or fitness, nothing of the sort. If you want to come try some yoga with me in a bunch of workshops, you qualify.


– Depending on where you live, I will come pick you up by car or we meet at Haarlem Central Station where I will pick you up and drive to the festival.

– We do yoga. And eat stuff. And look around. And take selfies if you’re into that.

– Depending of how tired we are and/or sick of we are of eachother at that point, we have dinner.

– I’ll drop you off at a train station or take you home.

– Optional: We name our first born babies after eachother.


– Easy as always. Comment.

– I’ll send “the winner” an email by next Wednesday.

  1. Nog een vrijwilliger 🙂 kom ik per spoor vanaf Heiloo jou kant op. Ben wel te oud voor je vrees ik maar even zo goed heel aangenaam in de omgang … en ik kan je over yoga in New York vertellen, hoe leuk is dat 😉

  2. Ik bied me ook aan! Gelukkig ben ik geen serial killer, maar econometrie-studente die al heel wat jaartjes on/off aan yoga doet. Ik zou vanuit Tiel de trein pakken.

    PS. Kinderen zou nog enige tijd kunnen duren, maar kan optioneel mijn eerste kitten naar je vernoemen haha.

  3. Ik wil mee! Ik ben niet de meest flexibele of ervaren yogi, maar altijd zeer gezellig (zelfs als ik kramp krijg van een te lang vastgehouden lastige pose en vijf minuten op 1 been aan het hinkelen ben)!

  4. Jaaa ik vind dit super leuk en hoop dat we even gek zijn, 🙂 wat een leuk avontuur. Ben zelf kinderyoga docente en therapeute, en geniet ervan om speels in het leven te staan. Go with the flow, dus jaa heel graag. ik zou vanuit Utrecht de trein pakken

  5. Ooh my gosh dit lijkt me super leuk 🙂 Ik woon op dit moment niet in NL, maar ben in juli voor vakantie in de lage landen en dit lijkt me een heel erg leuke kans om verschillende dingen te combineren:
    1) pretzel bending in het schattigste kleine stadje van Nederland (cultureel verantwoord zijn in je vakantie, check!)
    2) mijn grote interesse voor yoga uitbreiden (ben nu groot fan van maar echte lessen zijn zoveel beter..) (+ working out in the holiday, check!)
    3) jou ontmoeten, coolness ten top
    4) het excuus om na deze dag me op maandagmiddag mezelf te buiten laten gaan aan de appeltaart op Noordermarkt in Adam, want die heb ik zo gemist (in balans leven, dubbelcheck)

    Ik geloof dat ik de -projecteer je wensen het universum in theorie- ga uitproberen.. OOHhmmm Namasté 😉

  6. An email by next Wednesday, that means that replying on Wednesday morning totally still counts as replying on time… right? (oh revision, thank you for completely taking over my life and all that)

    Anyway, yoga and Haarlem and maybe food? Down.

  7. Hebben we extra kans als we meerdere keren reageren of is de winnaar al bekend? – probeer mijn kansen voor klokslag middernacht woensdag te verhogen.. :p- of is dit te stalkerig? :s
