About this retreat:
We want you to feel safe and at home, to be able to try something new and explore the depth of the healing energy through breath, sound and movement.
We have created a beautiful program that allows you to explore different energies such as; gaining knowledge and understanding about the importance of our inner Chakra system. When we understand our energy levels and the functions of the different chakras, our mind can relax and we can drop deeper into the state of being.
Breath is our life energy, our prana, it nourishes our cells everyday, it keeps us alive. In this retreat you will explore different ways of how to use breathwork to become more present in the body and therefore in life. In the mornings we will integrate breathing techniques into the Meditation and Yoga practises, which are suitable for beginners and advanced practicioners.
Breathwork enables us to go deeper into our inner being. In Breathwork Ceremonies we can learn how to free ourselves from old beliefs, overcome birth traumas, learn more about our own personal law and become more conscious and alive with our breath. We integrate the power of affirmations, the 5 emotions and various practical exercises to deepen the connection to ourselves and others.
You will leave with simple tools which allow you to connect with your true self, bringing you into a deeper state of happiness.
The power of vibration and the power of sound are integral vitality tools that we will share with you. We are vibration and we are sound. How do you feel when you listen to the ocean, to the birds, to the wind or when you hear a baby cry? Do you remember that special song, that made your heart smile? Together we will explore the science of sound and in turn discover much more about ourselves.
On this retreat you will have the chance to sing, to explore sound, to find the magic of the healing powers of music. You don’t have to be a singer or need any experience. Simply come with open ears and an open heart willing to play and explore the power of sound!
We also want to celebrate with you. We all naturally contribute to this beautiful coming together in nature, something which is definitely worth celebrating! There will be time to relax by the pool, nourish our bodies with amazing food and dance into ecstasy with heart touching music. On fullmoon we’ll gather for a beautiful cacao ceremony.
We do not serve any alcohol and also ask you to be free of alcohol and drugs for your stay with us.
Our workshops offer high quality material and will be facilitated by international teachers. Our teachers bring variety and a background of many years working with transformation and healing. This retreat is suitable for beginners in yoga and healing work and also helps to develop advanced practitioners.
We will create a sense of being at home and being held in a sacred space to allow transformation to happen. We will be a unified family and welcome a range of age, culture and background to experience this magical journey together.
We have a maximum of 15 particpants, to keep it intimate and safe.

Kundalini Yoga is a form of traditional Hatha Yoga. It is a Yoga practice with the use of the breath, some-times we hold the breath in different postures and that creates a lot of energy. We use Bhandas (locks) that bring a lot of benefits, and help us to move stagnant energy in the body. Kundalini yoga is mainly used to awaken an energy inside of us, the clear energy channels and brings us out of the mind into a state of meditation. It is not a stretchy dynamic class or very physical, even though the physical body will also benefit of the practices.
