Dana Sertel German Jivamukti Casa Erica, Spain Philippa v. Heyden Very dynamic September

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.


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.

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.

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

Fully Booked German In Sabina, Italy April All Level Jivamukti Philippa v. Heyden Very dynamic


Primavera - Fully Booked

All Level ✺ 16-22 April 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Frühling ist die Zeit der Entfaltung, des Neustarts und des Wiederkehrens von Licht und Energie. Es ist eine besondere Zeit um sich neu auszurichten und neue Kraft zu schöpfen.

Gemeinsam werden wir in dieser Woche diesen neuen Schwung willkommen heißen, losgelöst von den alltäglichen Herausforderungen. Umgeben von schönster Natur können wir diesen wiederkehrenden Prozess der Erneuerung erleben.

Mit Leichtigkeit und Spaß widmen wir uns der Magie der Jivamukti Yogapraxis. Zwischen den Yogaklassen gibt es viel Zeit, die Du für Dich alleine oder aufgehoben in der Gruppe verbringen kannst.  Dich erwartet eine Woche gefüllt mit besonderen Momenten und tiefer Verbundenheit. Yoga bedeutet Einheit. Verbindung. Die Praxis hilft uns dabei, mit uns selbst und mit der Natur in Kontakt zu treten. Ich freue mich mit Dir diese Beziehungen zu vertiefen und den Frühling willkommen zu heißen. Italien ist dann genau der richtige Ort dafür.

Morgens starten wir mit Meditation und Pranayama, gefolgt von einer dynamischen Jivamukti Yogaklasse. In diesen Klassen werden wir Asana üben, chanten, in die yogische Philosophie eintauchen und bei guter Musik sehr viel Spaß haben.

Am Nachmittag wird es in der Regel etwas ruhiger. Asana-fokussierte Workshops, Chanting und Restorative Yoga wechseln sich ab.

An einigen Abenden treffen wir uns zum Satsang:  zum Austausch oder einfach zum Zusammensein.

Philippa Heyden (Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher)

Anfang 2015 absolvierte Philippa das Teacher Training in Radhanath Swamis magischem Govardhan Eco Village in Indien mit ihren Lehrern Sharon Gannon, David Life, Lady Ruth und Jules Febre unter ihrem Mentor Yogeswari.

Was sie am Jivamukti Yoga begeistert, ist die Kombination aus intensiver Asana-Praxis, Meditation, Gesang, verschiedenen Musikstilen, Pranayama, Bewusstheit und Wahrnehmung der direkten und indirekten Umwelt.

about the place

It doesn’t seem possible that InSabina is less than an hour’s drive from the crowded streets of Rome. With lush, abundant grounds of its own, along with a natural spring and a magnificent wooden yoga platform which overlooks the valley below, this is a truly magical place that’s ideal for spiritual practice, slowing down, and plunging oneself into nature. More
