To start the day focused and with a calm mind the day begins with a individual 15 minutes meditation, followed by an individual warm up where we mobilize the joints and wake up the body.
“How we do anything is how we do everything.”
A radically honest and true way of moving, transitioning, flowing and interacting. Over obstacles. Through blockages. With our body. With other bodies or alone. Reducing rigidness. Supporting relaxation in motion. How can I become more fluid, simpler, efficient in my movements? What ways can my body move? Which movements support and nurture my mobility? Flexibility? Reactiveness? If my way of moving is showing my way of thinking, how can I get more relaxed, stable and maybe even authentic in my expression?
All of these questions and thoughts and more are addressed in this part of the retreat.
In the mind science talks we are wrapping our minds around topics like: motivatoin & drive, how to establish and integrate habits, emotional eating & mindful eating.
These talks are optional to join if there is interest.
How much do you know about your way of interacting with other human beings? Maybe you like or dislike a certain kind of person? Maybe there are particular kinds of humans who inspire anxieties, or admiration in you? Understanding what gives us a feeling of trust, what makes us follow and what triggers rebellion in us is most important if we want to get more out of our everyday life is it not? What gives me the feeling of security, what makes me fearful and why? And what can I do on my behalf to gain a greater sense of calm and self awareness in any given situation, so as my environment does not stress, trigger me or provoke me anymore?
Simple but playful we put practices into action, little experiments and proven methods on how to talk, move, touch and even grapple with the people around us to better understand our boundaries, how to respect and communicate them outward and connect and follow our desires and wishes without limiting habits and beliefs.
Many know the traditional yoga styles taught all over the globe by now. Still little are familiar with the variety lesser known ways of activating, loosening, strengthening and restoring the body through innovative classes like yoga sculpt combined with elements of mobility training, yin yoga, yoga nidra or group yoga exercices like human mandala and acrobatic yoga, that encourage interactive postures for two or more participants. The vitality and knowledge of how to reduce tension in the body to optimize our performance is long available and in this part of the retreat we address it all with the knowledge gathered over more than a decade.
Sit straight, chant hundreds of mantras, incense all over the place and someone who tells you about the struggle you are in. The confusion of how to meditate, what it is, postures, goals, what is best and why, is circulating the internet as the practice and possible benefits find different wrappings, ideas and expressions in our society. Simply put, we meditate to focus. On the breath. On whatever thoughts arise. On relaxing the body. Different body parts, emotions or blockages. Visualising and journeying to possible encounterments and much more. Laying down, sitting, walking, dancing. As long as we are one with what we do, we meditate.
In this part of the retreat, we will explore sleep yoga, shamanistic journeying, breath work, Body scanning and exploring emotional connections we hold to experiences we made in our life to re-align our energies, clear out our breathing channels and lungs and connect with our body on a new level.
Cacao is more than just chocolate – it’s a heart medicine. The cacao spirit communicates with us through the heart with unconditional joy & love & gratitude. On a physical level cacao provides a huge number of precious nutrients for the body as for the emotional state of being. In the ceremony we sit together in a circle and share the cacao, share gratitude and the energy we create.
We end this retreat, on the last evening together in ceremony with a cup of cacao.

Meet the Retreat Leaders
“I love Movement of both the body and mind- functional training to help strengthen the body to serve our individual needs, and meditation as a tool to sharpen and train the mind. As a Swiss certified Performance Coach, I travel, teach, and train people just like you and me, and help them to get closer to their full potential. Having a background in martial arts and parkour, I am constantly exploring and developing myself to even higher levels of mental and physical awareness.”
« Every aspect of a human being can be trained and taught and our capacity to learn is limited only by our mind! But Passion and Curiosity have to be the Foundation! »
Stefanie Grace aka. Nini
“I’ve started my yoga and movement journey in 2011, when I studied biology & nutrition in Vienna. Yoga has then changed a lot in my live and in combination with my workouts and a healthy nutrition I managed to find and maintain the balance for a happy life. I accepted myself more and more, cultivated self-love again and again and finally became friends with myself. My own journey has inspired me to become a Health Coach. So, after I accomplished my trainings in Vienna and India I started teaching in Switzerland and from there the journey is going on.”
« Enjoy life, enjoy every moment and most importantly – enjoy yourself! »
