What does it actually mean to go on a retreat?
Literally to retreat means to move back or withdraw. Step back from our daily tasks and habits, spend time in community, reset and open up to new inputs, eventually extend our comfort zone and deepen practices.
We went to the beautiful island of Mallorca, away from tourism, staying at a magical place, where the energy of the place and the people were welcoming us.
When hosting a retreat, I’m fully committed to be authentically me. While all practices are properly planned, I’m open for the dynamics of the group to change plans for the better. Flexibility is key!
Not just a variety of different yoga practices, also spirituality is a huge part, but never as a doctrine, it comes naturally as an experience for the participants.
And yes, there was more!
Healthy and tasty food, no so healthy (but nevertheless yummy) drinks, a lot of laughter, great talks, quiet times, the nourishing spring sun, massages, sound healing, breathwork, and and and…. And the fun of good company!
We had a blast and I’m already thinking about the next one…. stay tuned!
We do it again! Join us!!! Immerse into the power of the yoga frequency and enjoy a long weekend filled with yoga, wellness and some fab surprises for you!
3rd to 6th October – please see details below and let us know if you’re in! I’m mixing languages now, apologies for that, but the retreat will be hold in German.

Done!!! I couldn’t feel more grateful – what a journey, what a week! Very intense, same time easy flowing. Flow is the right term, everything at the right time. No forcing, no judging. We just did it. Calm, peaceful, with a huge portion of passion. Great practice, touching ceremonies, yoga, breathwork, meditation, mindfulness.
But the best part was to share all this with stunning souls. Everyone so different, everyone in the same groove.

Have you ever thought about doing a Yoga retreat? It was a big thing for me when I did my first one years ago. A step into the unknown – not knowing the place, nor the people or teachers. I wasn’t used to travel the world on my own, so I had to convince myself to follow my longing. It felt like a break through into a new world, a world of travelling and meeting new people from around the world. Exciting and a bit scaring same time.
I can’t express how happy and overall grateful I am that I decided to go that time. This holiday changed my life forever. In a good sense of course!
Many years later, I will host my own retreat (woop woop!) and you know what? It will be at the same stunning beautiful location where I attended my first one! This is so exciting and I love to make this a magical week for my participants too. They will be pampered with delicious vegetarian food, dive into the power of the yoga frequency and experience a feeling of being family.
Are you wondering if this is something for you? Read my post here to get some clarity.
Interested? Check the details of my magical week in Bali – hope to see your there! Welcome to paradise!
I’m working on the Yin classes for our retreat next year — and I’m happy to give a hint on what to expect:
Next to the Ashtanga or Vinyasa classes in the morning, we will practice Yin Yoga in the evenings, which means we will go into the postures and hold them for several minutes. Our focus will be on our breath while we will strengthen the mobility of the joints and stretch the deeper muscles, the connective tissues and fascia. The meridian systems will be stimulated and inner organs massaged.
Each class will focus on one of the five elements — wood, fire, earth, metal and water. We will learn about the relating organs as well as the assigned emotions. No worries, we won’t go to much into the theory, but experience it!
Each class will have an introducing meditation and/or breathing sequence to prepare us for the calming, but intense practice.
I’m so looking forward to seeing you there! Get the details here and contact me for any questions!
Woop woop – the work started! Just creating the first Yin Yoga sequence for my Yoga Retreat next year. A new book with blank pages is waiting to be filled…. We will practice Yin, Pranayama and Meditation each evening to relax and unwind as well as soothe our soul. We will float into the evenings with a huge smile on our faces 🙂

I’m back from the island of gods – a most beautiful time to slow down, relax, release and reconnect. Finally fully back to my own practice, which was so easy and playful over there. The first days back home were made of extreme ups and downs, but that’s the chili of life isn’t it? We don’t want it being just smooth and boring 😉
