yoga practice

Our week of practice will focus on detoxification through asana, pranayama, kriya and healthy food; on letting go of limiting habits and thought patterns; and on creating space for contentment, ease and focus.

We offer two daily yoga practices. The morning sessions are dynamic and detoxifying, the afternoons are relaxing and nourishing with practices including Yoga Nidra, Mantra Chanting & YIN Yoga.

Our retreat is inspired by the philosophical and psychological concept of Sattva, a Sanskrit word meaning balance, serenity and clarity.


Practitioners of all levels are warmly welcome.

Cleanse the body with a week of delicious healthy, plant-based food, made from organic locally grown produce, mainly from the own garden. 

You will enjoy three wonderful meals per day and be spoiled in between with organic local fruits and vegetables as well as freshly made juices and smoothies and hot and cold herbal teas.


To get some inspiration for your own cooking, we will offer a  vegan cooking course.
