A Journey Within

A Journey Within

Mittelstufe ✺ 28 Sep - 4 Okt ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Komm mit uns auf eine intuitive Reise auf der wir den Kontakt zu unserer inneren Stimme stärken und lernen dem Körper zuzuhören. Wir wollen den Blick umdrehen – anstatt im Außen zu sehen, versuchen wir im Innen zu fühlen – um uns dadurch eine ganz neue Welt und Möglichkeiten zu eröffnen.

Wir starten den Tag mit einer dynamischen Asana Praxis, die dich auf allen Ebenen – körperlich, mental und emotional – auf den Tag einstimmt. Die Klassen führen durch intuitive Bewegungsmuster zurück vom Kopf ins Herz und sollen dazu inspirieren deinen Körper auf eine ganz neue Art und Weise kennenzulernen.

Die Abendstunden werden bestimmt durch langsam, fließende oder gehaltene Asanas, sanftem Pranayama und einer geführten Meditation um zurück in den Raum unserer Intuition zu treten und das Erlebte in Ruhe zu reflektieren und abzuschließen.

Level: Mittelstufe

Du solltest eine regelmäßige Asana Praxis haben und Lust auf dynamische, fordernde Klassen.

 

Elke Waibel

Seit über 10 Jahren teile ich als dipl. Tänzerin und Yogalehrerin meine Leidenschaft für Bewegung.
In meinen Yogaeinheiten möchte ich die Menschen dazu inspirieren ihren Körper nicht nur als ein Werkzeug zu betrachten, das einen Zweck zu erfüllen hat, sondern viel mehr als komplexes Gebilde, das eine uns unvorstellbare Tiefe hat, uns einen Platz in dieser Welt gibt und uns hilft mit anderen in Kontakt zu treten. In meinen Klassen bilden sanfte Pranayama Übungen und starke Vinyasa Flows einen sicheren Rahmen, den wir immer wieder spielerisch durch intuitive Bewegungen durchbrechen werden sodass wir die Balance zwischen analytischem Denken und intutiven Fühlen entwickeln.

Dolce Far Niente

Dolce Far Niente - The Sweetness of Doing Nothing

All Level ✺ 20-26 August ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

One of Yoga’s greatest gifts (of which there are many) is that it opens us to the simple sweet nothings that are really quite something. To see magic even in the most mundane. To appreciate more and more of life. To feel satisfaction simply because we exist.

When we start to slow down, there comes a point where we can land back into the somewhat familiar feeling of stillness and begin to remember what it is to be at ease within ourselves, and as such at ease within the world around us.

This retreat is an opportunity to do just that; to slow down and invite deep, replenishing rest into the cells of your body. To know nourishment as something that gives to you without taking anything else away. To find the deliciousness of space, and experience stillness as so much more than a physical act, and come to know it as a joyful feeling that arises under the right conditions.

Mornings will comprise of a complete practice (asana, pranayama & meditation) that weave Yogic philosophy/ understanding into the fabric of your experience. The afternoons will alternate between restorative practices that help us to balance & regulate the nervous system, inviting deep rest for body, mind & soul (Guided Relaxation, Yoga Nidra, Meditation etc) and, or workshops that provide an opportunity to further unpack some of Yoga’s essential teachings as it pertains to the power of presence, rest, and emotional resilience.

Journalling and self enquiry will play a large role in our experience together, as a means to spark greater clarity, growth and transformation.

Slow down

Slow Down

Beginner & All Level ✺ 22-28 October 2023 ✺ La Viñuela Andalusia, Spain

A reset for body mind and soul.
Join us for a six day Yin Yoga & Somatics retreat, linked to the meridian theory & organ health, as well as cleansing pranayama (breathwork) practices and gentle somatic flows to attain balance.

During this retreat, you will nourish your entire system through targeted meridian practices and activate your body’s own healing powers.
Boost your immune system and start glowing from the inside out.

The yin practice will open up different meridians working from the inside out and the somatic flows will support a healthy flow of energy throughout the system.

Yin practice doesn’t require a lot of energetic effort, instead we are creating a rest and digest practice for the body to optimise the organ’s functions.

Additionally we will bring balance with gentle somatic flows, mantra practices and well chosen musical elements throughout the practical sessions.

Each day’s practice will focus on a different element ( earth, water, fire, air & ether), linked to a specific organ pair.
Yin will allow us to restore chi in our organs and the somatic work, accompanied by pranayama ( breathwork) will support a healthy flow of chi/prana ( bio energy)

Expect a nourishing week, where our main focus lies on connecting our inner with outer world – harmonising and connecting with the five elements present within and all around us at all times!

There will also be an introductory workshop offered on traditional Chinese medicine & yoga.
A week of self care, nourishment, heart based Somatics and mantra practices surrounded by nature.

Janine Behrendt

Janine’s Yoga journey started in 2008 during her late teens after being in show dance for a decade. First for the physical relief but not long after that for the feeling of wholeness, a calm mind and the ability to see things differently. 

In 2013 she completed her first 200 hour Multi- Style Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamsala, India with Trimurti Yoga School (RYS), focused on Yogic anatomy and various different styles like Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin which she personally likes to combine during her own practice and therefore share that experience with her students – “Different bodies, different needs. Its about finding the balance (tula) in everything .”

In 2017, she completed a 300 hour Jivamukti Teacher Training under the guidance of Sharon Gannon (Co-founder of the method) , Yogeswari and Moritz Ulrich. Later in 2017 she started studying and practing the Insight Yoga method as taught by Sarah Powers.

2018 she completed an apprenticeship program with her mentor Miriam Iannone (advanced certified Jivamukti teacher) who has shared with her the art of sequencing and hands on assists.

2020 she completed a Yin Yoga Teacher Training focused on functional anatomy and TCM practice with Sebastien Pucelle and Murielle Burrelier (With-Yin Yoga).

She is currently diving into the therapeutic approach of Iyengar Yoga as well as doing in depth studies into the field of Kundalini Yoga practices, integrating and exploring the benefits of Pranayama ( breathwork). Janine continues to explore the blend of various different styles and likes to share the benefits of a well balanced Yoga practice , integrating Yin and Yang sequences supported by Yogic teachings , gracefully incorporating music to assist those benefits .

Culinary Yoga Retreat

A Yoga & Culinary Retreat // Warrior Within

All Level ✺ 15- 21 June 2023 ✺ 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.

Join us for a week of cultivation. We will be learning how to move from fear to faith.  Cultivating the mind and body of the spiritual warrior, rising above our own limitations, remaining unattached to the outcomes of life circumstances, staying centered and physically, mentally and emotionally.  

Through the week we will explore three pathways; action, devotion and knowledge. You will begin to connect to the strength, stability and power that already lies within you leaving the week standing strong in your true self. As you return to the battlefield we call life you will be empowered to live a life of integrity and truth, embracing your full warrior potential.

This retreat is about tapping into your warrior potential.  Often in life what really holds us back from our own power is our fears.  

Each morning will include a strong vinyasa practice interwoven with yoga mythology, meditations, self-enquiry, and goddess ritual. Each evening you can join a lunar practice which will be either yin or restorative in nature (or a combination of the two). There will also be plenty of down-time to pause, to rest or to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local area.

Imogen fiercely believes that yoga is for everyone, that it is a vital tradition that transcends all race and religion, fundamental in all of our lives more so now than ever before.

Culinary Workshops:
Nourish and Connect

by Caro Gante

The process of cooking and eating food does not have to be a chore–it can be a celebration. With Caro, you will feel the collective energy of cooking as a community, sharing laughter, tips, and the recognition of the land as provider of everything. You’ll eat a variety of food that not only feed your belly but nourish your soul. Disconnect from the utility of consuming and reconnect with the idea that food is more than just food—it is the core of community, of connection, of life.

In the afternoons, we’ll gather around the kitchen for three different vegan workshops:

  • Fermentation: learn the basics and the benefits of this ancient practice
  • Pasta: a hands-on adventure in preparing 3 different pastas and sauces
  • Galette: a sensory affair of both sweet and savory

In the evenings, the dinner table will become our social experience where we will feast on the soulful meals we created, sharing mouth-watering bites and the stories that bind our hearts to one another.

You’ll leave this retreat with a greater ease in the kitchen, technical skills and a recipe e-book, and a deeper connection to your own intuition so you can flow beyond the recipes to create meals that bring you both joy and sustenance.

About Caro Gante

Retreat chef and integrative nutrition health coach Caro will guide you with her creative approach through three workshops in which she’ll share her knowledge and passion for wholesome vegan food. Next to essential ideas of the plant-based cuisine Caro will introduce to you a variety of her favorite recipes which are designed for experienced cooks as well as curious-minded yogis that are new to the world of vegan cooking.

On this retreat, you’ll level up your cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen while also getting a better understanding of holistic health and wellbeing.

Free Spirit

Free Spirit

Intermediate ✺ 22- 28 June ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Wie oft suchen wir im Außen was uns glücklich macht? Wie oft treffen wir Entscheidungen, weil es gesellschaftlich anerkannt wäre und verlieren dabei den Blick auf uns und unser Herz?

Das Free Spirit Retreat soll dir wieder mehr Zugang und Vertrauen zu dir schenken, um dein Herz öffnen und ein Leben zu führen, dass dich wirklich glücklich macht. 

Alle Entscheidungen, die wir im Außen treffen bringen uns oft weg von dem, was unser Herz eigentlich will und wir verschließen uns vor dem Fluss des Lebens. Je mehr wir vertrauen, desto mehr fangen wir wieder an auf unsere innere Stimme zu hören. Das Leben ist zu kurz, um es so zu leben, dass die anderen glücklich sind und du auf der Strecke bleibst. Schenk dir eine Woche Auszeit, nimm dir Zeit für dich  den Blick wieder nach innen zu richten und dir zu erlauben, dich vom Leben tragen zu lassen, indem wir wieder mehr ins fühlen kommen und weg gehen vom überdenken. 

Jeder Tag beginnt in Stille mit einer Meditation gefolgt von einer dynamischen Yoga Einheit. 

Am Nachmittag nehmen wir uns Zeit, um nach innen zu schauen. Wir variieren das Nachmittagsprogramm mit entspannenden Yoga Einheiten, Journal anstoßen, Traumreisen oder Embodiment. 

Level: Mittelstufe

Du solltest eine regelmäßige Asana Praxis haben und Lust auf dynamische, fordernde Klassen.

 

Christina Bruns

Die Yogapraxis hat Christina gelehrt sich so zu nehmen und akzeptieren wie sie ist. Entscheidungen aus dem Herzen zu treffen und immer wieder bei sich ankommen.

Geprägt durch ihre frühere Zeit als Tänzerin sind ihre Klassen verspielt, dynamisch und körperlich fordernd.

In ihrem Unterricht möchte sie dir einen Raum schaffen, in dem du dich frei machen darfst von all den äußerlichen Erwartungen und dir erlauben darfst bei dir anzukommen, im Hier und Jetzt. In ihren Klassen verschmelzen Tradition und Moderne wie ein Tanz ineinander. Du tauchst über die Atmung und Bewegung zu elektronischen Klängen in deiner Zone ab. Christina bringt dich an deine körperlichen Grenzen auf eine liebevolle Art und Weise und lässt dich erkennen, dass du zu jeder Zeit in dir vollkommen bist.

Vinyasa Flow In Sabina, Italy All Level Gentle Fleur van Hille Yin Restorative Nidra

Abundant Heart

Abundant Heart

All Level ✺ 6- 12 August ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Life can be hectic, keeping us on a hamster wheel of thoughts and worries. On this retreat, you’re invited to break free from this state of being by opening and listening to the wisdom of your heart – out of your head, into your heart.

Each day, we’ll flow through our yoga practice, carried by inspiring musical vibrations, and sing mantras that fill us with joy. We’ll use the breath to soothe our nerves and take deep rest with Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, creating the stillness we need to see ourselves as we really are. And we’ll use the stories and myths behind the asanas as a playful way of understanding life’s universal themes – and looking at our own situations with a fresh perspective.

This shared journey will remind you that you are part of a bigger whole and connect you to the abundant joy that comes with this experience. You’ll learn to let sadness and pain flow through you, gently widening your compassion towards yourself and others. Above all, you will discover that freedom from worry doesn’t come from controlling your outer world, but from trusting yourself in this very moment.

Fleur van Hille 

People often describe me as a warm and sunny person with an intuitive approach to teaching yoga. I like hearing this description because it shows that I’ve made a real connection with my students. And if there’s one thing about yoga that I love the most and which characterises my classes, workshops and retreats, it’s the feeling of being connected.

A retreat offers us the possibility of a truly profound experience of yoga. Surrounded by nature and among like-minded people from every corner of the world, a unique journey unfolds. Conversations open up, emotions are untapped, and discoveries are made…

In the quiet of each morning, we begin our yoga practice in stillness, taking time to anchor our awareness in the present moment through a guided breathing exercise, a meditation or visualisation. Then, drawing on the energy of the rising sun and the freshness of a brand-new day, I lead you through a vinyasa flow that is both gentle and energising.

During the dip in energy that tends to follow lunchtime, the sessions slow down, allowing for a deeper exploration of the techniques and practices encountered earlier in the day. There’s also plenty of time for sinking into a profound state of relaxation with restorative or yin yoga, or even yoga nidra (yogic sleep) – sometimes accompanied by mantras, music, or myths.

Inner Balance

Inner Balance

Beginners, All Levels ✺ 25- 31 May 2023 ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Yoga is, at its core, a practice that calms the mind. Our lives are often stressful, full of inevitable interruptions and challenges to overcome. Yoga gives us a tool to stay centered and to approach each challenge with serenity.
Over the course of our time together, we’ll explore these benefits through poses, breath work, and mantra singing.
We’ll learn the essentials of yoga and explore the myths and texts, which are the base of yoga philosophy and inspired this ancient practice.

In the mornings, we will move our bodies in a dynamic, playful morning flow. The basic asanas will be explained and some asanas we will practice together with a partner, allowing you to move deeper into the poses and feel the alignment.

In the afternoons, we’ll explore quieter practices like yoga nidra – a guided meditation, restorative yoga – a practice of deep relaxation, and singing. We’ll learn how to release the subtle layers of tension in the body and open ourselves up to space, to relief, and to breath.

Each day, we’ll come together over delicious meals to share, connect, and laugh. You’ll find inspiration and friendship in others, and perhaps in yourself as well. When it’s finally time to return home, you’ll leave feeling restored, reenergised, and fortified to take on whatever life gives you.

This retreat is perfect for everyone completely or relatively new to yoga. All levels are welcome though.

about the place

Casa Erica is where it all begun and where we host retreats since 2014. It is a home to us, which we love to share. Peacefully located on the coast of Andalusia, between Málaga and Nerja. The beach in walking distance.

What we love most about it are the pastel sunsets, the wild beaches and the laid back Andalusian mentality. Also our dog Alpha and cat Hanuman live here. More

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.
