Endless Summer

Endless Summer

Intermediate ✺ 21- 27 September ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Let´s dive together into a feeling of “endless summer”, immersing into the practice with a welcoming, kind and fun group. 
The new moon marks the starting point of our retreat. New moon stands for new beginnings. A positive outlook on what is to come for us individually and collectively. A spark of inspiration for what we want to create.
Removed from the daily hustle of our everyday lives, we gather as complete human beings in interaction with one another. Come for time alone or come for time with others – your needs are welcome. 
We offer you a retreat where you can be fully yourself. Take things with lightness and ease, as we explore the magic of the practice together. The most insightful spiritual teachings happen, when we feel open and safe. It is in those moments that we can truly let go and allow ourselves to become receptive. If you feel called to join us, we will embark on this journey together. 
This retreat is truly uplifting, joyful and full of moments of deep connection. 

The practice

The morning asana classes will be the full package – a vigorous practice, fun and sweaty with a soundtrack that will make you want to dance, chanting which softens the heart and Dharma (philosophy talk) that sparks new ideas for the spiritual path. 

We recommend some experience with Jivamukti Yoga or Vinyasa/Ashtanga Yoga (you can join online classes or come to the studio in Berlin or elsewhere). 

The afternoon practice is usually held in workshop style where we dive deeper into a topic. Some asana related, some focussing on a chakra or on a teaching. In any case we go deep here.

Some evenings are spent with Satsang (chanting or meditation together and some philosophy) where you get to connect or simply be inspired by the teachings.

Level Intermediate: You should have a regular asana practice and expect dynamic, challenging classes.

Dana Sertel (Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher)

Dana is based in Berlin where she practices and teaches daily – Ashtanga and Jivamukti Yoga. She cares a great deal about authenticity and vulnerability. She is giving thanks to her teachers, who always accompanied her with a loving eye, while giving her the tools she needed. Her classes are vigorous and always come with carefully curated music.

Philippa Heyden (Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher)

In early 2015 she completed the Teacher Training at Radhanath Swami’s magical Govardhan Eco Village in India with her teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Lady Ruth and Jules Febre under her mentor Yogeswari.

What inspires her about Jivamukti Yoga is the combination of intensive asana practice, meditation, chanting, various styles of music, pranayama, awareness and awareness of the direct and indirect environment.
Philippas website

We – Dana & Philippa – will be hosting our second retreat together at Yoga Spirit Circle. Each time we teach a retreat together, we are also asked to show up for each other and for the retreat group and each time we are even more surprised by the amount of love, joy and connection we get to experience.

Endless Summer

The most insightful spiritual teachings happen, when we feel open and safe.

Culinary Yoga Retreat

A Yoga & Culinary Retreat // Autumn Reset

All Level ✺ 14- 20 September ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Our signature Yoga & Culinary Retreats are perfect for those interested in plant- based cuisine eager to learn more or simply get inspired.

We will meet as the height of summer fades into cooler days. The warm pavement will contrast with cool breezes and the heat that radiates from within us will meet the whisper of falling leaves. Autumn is a time of harvest, of gratitude, of taking stock, and of celebration. It is also a time of searching within, of reflection, and of remembering.

As the days fall away and leave us facing the autumn equinox, we will learn how to embrace the magic of this transitory season—a time when what is old and no longer serving us falls away, leaving only what is most essential. Together, we’ll explore themes of letting go, of gratitude, of remembering, and of loss. We’ll dive deep into our intuition to find what is required of us to move into the quiet and reemerge in a state of rebirth as a more flowing and easeful expression of our deepest selves.

We’ll begin our days with reflective meditations and flowing vinyasa practices that will challenge our bodies to open, to recall, and to simplify. In the afternoons, we’ll turn inward through softer practices that remind us of the power of deep rest and gentle reflection. Come as you are, radiant from the summer heat or weary and ready to release. A wellspring of warmth, comfort, and reflection is waiting for you.

Lauren Simonis

Hello beautiful humans, I’m Lauren and I’ve been a yoga teacher for six years, a facilitator for twenty, and a lover of shared experiences my entire life. I believe in the magic of people coming together to share their lives in a way that leaves them somehow more fully themselves. Yoga offers an opportunity to do just that.

My classes are filled with light-hearted invitations to explore new movements, anatomy-driven alignment cues, mobility exercises, and regular reminders that every body practicing yoga will look a little different—and that is beautiful! My goal is to help you connect to your spirit, your strength, and your sense of fun.

I moved to Portugal from the U.S. in 2016 and that’s where my passion for yoga grew from a hobby, to a habit, to a passion. I first began teaching aerial yoga and then expanded my training to include vinyasa, hatha, yin, and myofascial release when I realized how much joy my students brought me. With these experiences, I found myself immersed more and more in yogic spaces, and in them, I found opportunities to nurture my students through healing, love, and support.
