• Become a tiger. Change your life.

    a natural path to connect to your deepest potential.

  • What does TigerTraining give me?

    We share 20 years of experience on a path we playfully call „Tao of the Tiger“. We use the Tiger as a symbol of calm and power. The Tiger has both feminine and masculine qualities; she is playful, gentle, confident, wild and fully aware of her sacredness, instinct and impact. Taoism means living into your true Nature, letting go of all that no longer serves you.


    The TigerTraining process we use enhances your physical, emotional and spiritual life force. Tapping into these new resources, you can more easily:


    ☼ dream bigger and live "on purpose"
    ☼ get unstuck, beyond old patterns, to make wishes into reality
    ☼ make a big transition for your future life
    ☼ connect to what really matters to you



      How does TigerTraining work?

      TigerTraining takes you on a 10-day spiritual adventure that helps you reconnect to your wild side, in beautiful natural settings. We train you in daily practices to enhance your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. This includes:


      • daily yoga
      • meditation
      • outdoor activities in nature
      • personal guidance
      • celebration 
      • and more...
    • retreats 2017

      TigerTrainings are offered a few times a year. Retreats are aimed at 30-55ers. Anyone is welcome to join, no experience required. Each retreat starts from where you are now, and builds on your previous experiences. Each retreat takes you on a slightly different but always unforgettable spiritual adventure. People who join TigerTrainings once or twice a year, notice how quickly their physical, emotional and spiritual life force develops.


      In each retreat you dive more deeply into:

      • skills to improve health and physical well-being
      • gaining the confidence to let go and simplify life
      • adopting lessons from nature to become more creative and focused

      Come and remember, rewild and reconnect.

    • your Team

      Our mission is to share our best with you.

      Madelon Evers

      As a Dutch-Canadian nomad, I grew up and worked for 25 years in many regions of the world as a coach, trainer, facilitator and consultant. Passionate about nature, I love outdoor activities, experiencing firsthand how much we can discover our own inner nature if we explore with a free spirit and stay open to nature's teachings. I wish to contribute to a beautiful evolution of human consciousness and create paths to a healthy and inspiring way of life. I support people through creative work, personal and team coaching, leadership training, and systemic nature therapy outdoors. I feel grateful to guide others on a personal journey through some important transition moments. Look forward to meeting you soon!

      Kilian Raetzo

      As a Swiss climbing teacher, yoga teacher and meditation teacher, as well as a life coach and group presenter, I pour my energy freely into a positive change in people and society. In my spare time, I am a global mind activist, a changemaker, an urban mystic, and a campfire guitarist. The luminous green of leaves in the sun, the freshness of moss under my feet, the warmth of a fire at night: these are physical experiences that I cherish. Caring connections with people and with Nature bring ever greater depth to my life experiences. I’m delighted to be able to share the best of me, with you at the next retreat.
