Morning Ritual

Each day you will start with a short morning ritual. Peter and Ellen will provide you with simple practices that will boost your immune system.

Uplifting yoga sessions

The morning practice will be lead by Ellen. These sessions combine the inner connection through meditation with the cleansing power of kriya.  The dynamic build up of hatha and  slow vinyasa yoga will open up and energise your body and mind.

The afternoon sessions are taught by Peter. These practices are slower with supported postures to find greater ease. Peter weaves in detailed breath practices called pranayama, integral to advancing the hatha yoga methods. Peters sessions will bring awareness to imbalance and teach you techniques to make your body feel whole again.

All yoga equipment, including yoga mats, is available at the retreat centre.

Personal guidance

Peter and Ellen will invite all participants to share their condition and experience. In this way they can guide you according to your needs.

Silence

The mornings are in silence. From waking till the end of the morning practice you will remain without social engagement to keep your attention within. This will benefit your inner process and help to clear the mind. This practice might turn out more interesting than it seems at first.

Vegan cooking workshop

Take your chance to get the chefs greatest insights about how to incorporate healthy plant based meals into your life, during an afternoon’s vegan cooking workshop.

Spa and massage

To complete your remedy experience you can take a swim in the salt-based pool or relax in the sauna and ofuro hot tub. There is the option to book a range of treatments with one of the local expert therapists in one of the purpose built therapy rooms.
