The people behind our retreats


Eden reflects a philosophy of hospitality with a commitment to sustainability, comfort and conscious living.

Remy Groenendaal

Founder & Personal Growth Teacher
The interest of becoming a better version of himself and living a healthy lifestyle was always a big part of his life since his professional tennis career. He wants to inspire others to follow their dreams and to share the tools that he has learned over the years to become the best version of yourself during the transformational retreats that Eden has to offer.

Kelly de Beer

Founder & Yoga Teacher
Kelly traveled the world with Remy to search for something more in life. She had no idea what she was looking for. A yoga teacher training, a Reiki training, and a Vipassana meditation course helped her find happiness by just being. She developed a dream to create a place where she could share her passions for good food and yoga and where people can take the time to be conscious of their body, mind, and soul. That dream became reality at Eden.

Monika Staszczyk

Yoga teacher and manager
Monika is a 300 RYT yoga teacher specialized in Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra and a Pilates instructor. Yoga appeared in her life when she needed aid that helped her recover, physically and mentally. She instantly fell in love with the practice which gave her the space to be with herself, grow and the feeling of safety. Yoga makes her feel happy, strong and healthy and enriches her life every single day so she decided to share this beautiful tool with others.

Andrea Knotter

Yoga teacher and manager
Yoga got a profound meaning when she needed to re-connect to her true self. Through the combination of movement, the yoga philosophy, and elements of nature she found a connection between her mind, body, and soul, and so her inner belonging. She aims to convey the balance of Yin & Yang to others through her true passion, yoga.
