Name: Marrejan Oepkes, 60
Languages: Dutch, English, Spanish, French, German
When she was 16 years old, having holidayed with her parents in Ibiza every summer from the age of 12, she knew she wanted to live in Ibiza. This dream came true in 1975 after finishing the fashion academy in Amsterdam. After 17 years of running her own fashion business she changed her life by travelling around the world on a sailing yacht with her son (aged just 5 years old at that time ) and her partner for 4 years. Coming back to Ibiza, at the age of 41, she worked in several different businesses in management on the Island for another 18 years.
This kind of work did not fit with her passion of life anymore. Discovering the way of life and philosophy of Yoga plus that Ibiza had changed and stressful work situations became a normal every day thing, made her decide to change life again.
Feeling the need to follow her heart and the need to help others by sharing her life journey with people giving advice in any way. Showing the way how she found deep happiness in work, relationships and balance by making different and fearless changes in her life.
Marrejan is today one of Ibiza Retreats co-hosts. And a compassionate life experienced ear for whatever you want to share and need advise about to make your life better.
Speciality: My (com)passion is to be able to help people who are going through their own life-journey. My own life story may help others by sharing my experiences. I am a Ibiza-Mama, professional-hugger and tear-wiper.
