Sasha Friess

Sasha Noelle
Plant-based chef & consultant

Sasha has cooked for a whole Yoga Spirit Circle season of 8 retreats in 2019. With Sasha living in Nicaragua we kept in touch over the pandemic and are very happy she returns to Casa Erica for the summer of 2023.
Sasha loves the tropical fruits & is much happy that she finds a great variety of them in Andalusia as well, where we have a subtropical micro climate.

“It is my passion to host and nurture guests. I love when others can experience food to be both beautiful, nourishing, and nutrient dense without ever jeopardizing quality or flavor. As a mindful chef, I always work to instill all food with intention, love and care. Each dish is a form of art and magic.”

More about Sasha

Caro Gante
Retreat chef & integrative nutrition health coach 

We met Caro in 2021 and it was a match! In 2022 Caro cooked at 11 Yoga Spirit Circle Retreats a creative, detailed, diverse and always very beautifully presented menu. It is both: healthy & delicious.

Caro is passionate about food since her childhood and it is just a pleasure and so inspiring experiencing her following that passion. Her ideas about creative plant-based dishes are endless & very intuitive. Her love for nature and ingredients gets delivered through her plates.

About the Yoga

When was the last time you chose you? This retreat is designed as a reset and is dedicated to give space to YOU so you come back home to yourself when life pulls you away, so you can choose yourself, emerging as your true self, full of self-love and acceptance.

During the full moon we will have a chance to observe and connect to the shifting energies. Lunar energy by nature is cooling, restorative, nourishing, nurturing and intuitive and invite us to slow down, go within and connect to the divine feminine energy within us. We’ll dive into the magic that resides within in our body, exploring inwards towards feeling, awareness, self-healing and peace. We combine this with an outward experience of learning and sharing with other beings, in a beautiful place, far away from our day to day.

Move your body daily with deep embodiment vinyasa yoga practices, guided breathing practices and meditation to connect to your inner world, and yin or restorative yoga to observe the shifts in energy within and music to match the rhythm of life that you seek. You will set sacred intentions, practice affirmations and gratitude, let yourself to feel your feelings and allow what is.

All this deep work will balance with free time for contemplation, entertainment for the senses with nourishing food, walks in nature, sunbathing at beach or at the pool.

October Janine Behrendt Beginner Slow All Level Gentle Jivamukti English Yin La Viñuela, Spain Restorative

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 .

Autumnal Escape

All Level ✺ 15-21 October 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

This autumn retreat has been designed to allow you to deeply re-tune your inner rhythm with that of the surrounding nature, drawing on both its energising yang power and its enveloping yin softness. It is the ideal time to release and let go but also to focus on our inner warmth, to establish comforting routines and to slow down our pace.

As the colours of Autumn twinkle and dance across the  magical countryside of Italy, we will spend a week together surrender by stunning views over rolling hills and olive groves. This retreat embraces the abundance of harvest time, offering a balance between yin and yang energies with daily yoga practises, meditation, breath-work, restoration and relaxation. 

We embrace the start of each day with a soulful and uplifting dynamic „yang“ yoga practices (Vinyasa flow) that accommodates all levels. We will also explore various meditations and pranayama practices. Come late afternoon, you can enjoy a soothing guided relaxation, Yin or Restorative yoga. We will spend some magical time getting to know ourselves and feeling in harmony with life. All this deeper work will balance with free time for rest,  reading, contemplation, walks in nature, ceramic workshop, massages and light-hearted time.

A Space to Breathe

Source: belle-melange.com

A Space to breathe

All Level ✺ 9-15 April 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Our capacity to breathe is our capacity to feel.  It is our capacity to live in this world and be sensitive.  Our breath is our most primal connection to life.  It is through our breath that spirit moves through us. 

Join Imogen for a week of diving deep into your respiratory system, exploring each day a different part of your body’s breathing apparatus that will increase your lung capacity.   As we open up these different breath doorways in the body you will, in turn, open the pathways in the body to receive consciousness.  You will begin to understand that what you take in on your breath becomes your tissues.  You will use your breath to create spaces in your energy channels.  These energy channels acting like transformation highways as the breath gives life to a bright, free, awakened you.  

Each morning will include a deep transformational vinyasa practice interwoven with meditations, self-enquiry, myofascial release and different pranayama (breath techniques).  Each evening you can join a lunar practice which will be either yin or restorative (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 North

Imogen hails from London, England and is now based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.  She trained initially under the expert eye of Katy Appleton and primarily teaches Yin and dynamic Vinyasa flow descended from the Krishnamacharya lineage.  

Imogen enhanced her teaching becoming one of Judith Hanson Lasater’s Relax and Renew® certified restorative yoga teachers and continues to train with her teacher Tiffany Cruikshank towards her Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist certification. 

Imogen is passionate about helping people make changes in their lives. Her teaching fuses anatomy, physiology and biomechanics with traditional Eastern yogic practices; tantra, ritual, and a deep reverence for nature.  

Imogen’s teaching honours the lineages of all of her teachers and through her teaching she hopes to inspire possibility and encourage self-awareness, awakening your authentic creativity as a yoga practitioner in the modern world. 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.

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.

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.

Am späten Nachmittag treffen wir uns wieder zu einer langsameren, beruhigenden Praxis wie Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Journaling und Sharing Circle, um den Tag sanft und bewusst ausklingen zu lassen.

Die Phasen der Ruhe und Entspannung brauchen wir, um neue Kraft und Kreativität zu schöpfen und so wieder Neugierde und Verspieltheit in unser Leben einzuladen.

Du hast die Gelegenheit die beiden Energien von rest and play in dieser Woche in vollen Zügen zu genießen, losgelöst von deinem Alltag, mitten in der Natur und in toller Gemeinschaft.

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

The Medicine of Awareness

The Medicine of Awareness

All Level ✺ 8- 14 June ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

This retreat is a mission of grace. Trapped in a masculine led society we can, quite easily, get overwhelmed by action and results, pushed forward into ‘doing’ as opposed to just ‘being’, we might feel stripped of our connection of what it feels like to be feminine. But seek and you shall find.  

This week with Imogen will be an opportunity to slow down, practice more introspective, tender practices so you can instinctively seek out what is authentic to the feminine you. We will call on the supernatural feminine to guide and teach us the path of inner awakening – restoring our vital energies so we can move forward from this week with wisdom.  

Through your senses and your intuition you will harness your power, embodying all that you feel, enabling you to trust in a greater guiding wisdom in all aspects of your life. As we work through the week we will shine light on self-limiting belief, habit, patterns, judgment. You can use this awareness as your medicine to begin to lift the veil leaving the week focused, clear and bright.  

Each morning will include a slow embodied vinyasa practice heavily interwoven with meditations, self-enquiry, yin 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 North

Imogen hails from London, England and is now based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.  She trained initially under the expert eye of Katy Appleton and primarily teaches Yin and dynamic Vinyasa flow descended from the Krishnamacharya lineage.  

Imogen enhanced her teaching becoming one of Judith Hanson Lasater’s Relax and Renew® certified restorative yoga teachers and continues to train with her teacher Tiffany Cruikshank towards her Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist certification. 

Imogen is passionate about helping people make changes in their lives. Her teaching fuses anatomy, physiology and biomechanics with traditional Eastern yogic practices; tantra, ritual, and a deep reverence for nature.  

Imogen’s teaching honours the lineages of all of her teachers and through her teaching she hopes to inspire possibility and encourage self-awareness, awakening your authentic creativity as a yoga practitioner in the modern world. 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.
