Nourish Your Essence Yoga & Meditation Retreat
April 18th - 21st, 2024, Brandenburg Germany
Gift yourself some time away and join us for 4 days to recharge and replenish at the beautiful Breitenteicher Mühle. Only one hour away from Berlin, surrounded by a nature reserve, we have time and space to dive deeper into our yoga practice.
You will be guided by two experienced, passionate yoga teachers and can look forward to a carefully selected mix of dynamic Vinyasa and gentle Yin Yoga, meditations, guided relaxation, breath work and ceremonies that leave you feeling clear, calm and connected.
The retreat is open to all yoga levels and will be held in English (unless ALL participants speak German).
The program starts on Thursday April 18th at 5.30pm with the first yoga session (arrival possible from 3.00pm) and ends after lunch on Sunday April 21st at 3.00pm.
We start every morning with yogic breath work that cleanses the body on the physical and energetic level and awakens our spirits. After breakfast we then flow through dynamic Vinyasa Yoga sequences that strengthen the body and leave us feeling energized and balanced. We build the sequences step-by-step learning about the alignment that allows the energies in our body to flow freely and release great healing potential.
We focus on different areas of the body, the respective energy centers and the aspects of our live they relate to, exploring the connection between the body and the mind. In the afternoon we take our practice further in workshops to understand Asana (posture) and their effect on the muscular and endocrine system, but also on emotions and mental wellbeing (Hatha Yoga).
We will indulge in the healing practices of soothing Yin Yoga for deep tissue release and dive deep into guided meditation (Yoga Nidra). In special sittings and ceremonies we meditate with different techniques, surrounded by candlelight or accompanied by the sound of Mantra.
Classes are held in English unless all the participants speak German.
The Breitenteicher Mühle is located in a nature reserve next to the biosphere reserve Schorfheide-Chorin, 90 km north of Berlin. A holistic approach played a decisive role in the planning and conversion of the historic mill into a retreat center. The mill building was restored under consideration of the protection of historical monuments using regionally usual ecological building materials. Green electricity is generated by the water power of the river Welse using a water wheel with generator. The farm's own water supply and ecological wastewater treatment ensure that it can also exist independently of other suppliers. Overall, the property has a positive energy balance.
The seminar house in the water mill is a home for seminars which are dedicated to personal development and growth and a place of concentration and positive mind and body work.
The Breitenteicher Mühle consists of two lovingly renovated buildings: the large old mill and the former smaller miller´s house. The old mill contains six double rooms and three bathrooms, so two double rooms are sharing one bathroom. In the miller´s house you can find more double rooms as well as one large double room with a private bathroom and a very spacious shared room with four beds with its own bathroom.
With a cozy ambience, perfectly restored bathrooms and beautifully furnished rooms the traditional architecture is combined with a sophisticated interior design. All the rooms have single beds which can be put together for couples.
Our retreat includes full board breakfast, lunch and dinner. Throughout the retreat the kitchen prepares homemade vegetarian and vegan organic food, mainly using regional products. The fruit and berry garden with beekeeping as well as a vegetable garden make a self-sufficiency possible to a limited extent.
We accommodate all nutritional preferences, please inform us upon booking about any allergies.
