About this trip

The Retreat
Hanuman is one of the multilayered figures of the Indian mythology. In this intensive vinyasa yoga retreat, Steffi and Natascha will lead you to your highest potential like Hanuman when he saved Sita by taking one big step to Sri Lanka. You will start each day with a workshop-style class including meditation, vinyasa yoga, alignment and philosophy. During the workshops Natascha and Steffi build up to more advanced poses in an intelligent yet playful way. In the evenings you will be able to restore with soothing practices, storytelling and pranayama. In your free time you can swim in the sea, take a meditative walk on the beautiful beach, enjoy the delicious meals, relax with a spa treatment at the resort spa or relax by the pool. This retreat offers you all you need to relax and tap into your own potential, getting ready to take big steps like Hanuman!
