Next Retreat! 18-20.11 Haus am Bauernsee

I am So pleased to announce the dates of our next retreat, November 18-20 2016 in the amazing Haus am Bauernsee. This location is perfect: peaceful, lakeside, close enough to Berlin to find in under an hour and far enough from the city to find your inner peace and listen deeply to sweet stillness.

   As Always we will begin moving together Friday evening, our yoga space is a beautiful ballroom with lake-view windows. After a centering, warming practice we will enjoy a feast cooked by me.

   Saturday morning we will sweat and smile! Beginning the day with a vigorous yet playful vinyasa class based entirely on your collective wishes. We will work up an appetite and then enjoy a brunch in front of a panoramic lake view. The day can be spent walking through the winter wonderland-forest, reading, playing the piano or other instruments, writing, getting a massage, or simply sitting in the spectacular settings throughout the house. I am pleased to be assisted by Jenine Kerr, an apprentice of mine and a well travelled, Indian-educated yoga teacher. She will teach the afternoon session, again based on your requests for tutorials, and assist me in all other sessions.

    Saturday night the huge, renovated farmhouse kitchen will be our home, as we collaborate on a cooking project/lesson. I will provide the recipes to everyone in advance and we will cook together, creating memorable cuisines, conversations, and connections.

     Sunday we will enjoy our final class and leisurely brunch together before heading home, relaxed and inspired to enjoy the upcoming holiday season.
