It was something about being in nature, surrounded by like-minded and same-hearted people, the delicious and healthy food and the holistic Yoga program that changed me at the first Yoga Retreat that I had attended. In one week I learned more about Yoga, breathing and the philosophy than I had in one year. I could improve my own Yoga practice in the long term by the excellent explanation of the correct alignment of Yoga postures for that you wouldn’t have the time in a normal class. More over, I could experience magical hands-on-adjusments for the first time that enabled my body to get deeper into certain postures and trained my body memory. Thus, I finally gained awareness of the importance of breathing that changed my practice forever.
Above them all, something inside me has changed and shifted. It was sort of magical. So magical that I could hardly describe it in words. I felt a fully new level of fulfillment, peace and freedom. Independency of all things I have thought I would need in order to be happy. I had this feeling of excitement and unreasonable anticipation for universe’s plan for life, suddenly knowing deep within that some amazing (!) things are waiting to happen in my life – not knowing at all what those would be. I still remember the exact moment I had this feeling arising inside me for the very first time. A very important milestone in my journey of waking up. A feeling that I remembered and that was my motor, a prophecy I believed in and worked for when I returned home after the retreat. For me personally it was a pivot point in my life. A point of no return. I started to eat healthier, to invest my time wisely, stopped going clubbing and drinking alcohol (for a while completely and strict, then balancing it out), because I cherished the morning hours so much and being in my full body power. I stopped spending my money on mainstream products, fast fashion etc. and saved all to finance a next Yoga retreat or even a Yoga Teacher Training. I dived deeper into meditation and my own yoga practice. I learned to love myself more and more and how to handle emotionally difficult situations. I learned to distance myself from toxic people and to practice myself in gratitude and to have my heart open for love in any kinds. My consciousness grew in many areas of life.
Having experienced myself the power of a Yoga retreat it is my big heart project to enable this experience to every curious soul out there. For everyone seeking to come home to their truth, their Devine being and to break out of their cage. For everyone with the need to be nourished in a loving surrounding of like-hearted people and mother nature.
