About this trip

Serenity - 

Enter “the state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled”

This unique retreat offers you a combination of adventure and  stillness. Combining safari in Tanzania´s most beautiful National Parks  with private yoga & meditation classes, led my Hanna.


During your 7 day retreat in Tanzania Hanna invites you to slow down and  experience pure presence. To be one with Africa´s gorgeous nature. To spot game, dropping into a meditative state of being while going on safari. 

Taking  the lightness and ease of the mindfulness practices, meditation and yoga experiences with you on safari.  The private tour guide will drive you safely through Tanzania´s most beautiful National Parks, introducing you to a new world, getting to know more about Africa´s wildlife and raw nature.

About your Yoga program and Hanna

This retreat is especially great for yoga beginners and those of you,  who wish to be more grounded and centered. Classes are designes to give you deep insights into the fundamentals and foundations of yoga and meditation. Flowing and strengthening morning yoga practices, specific individual guidance and a unique final relaxation experience with Hanna chanting for you - this will set the tone for a truly serene and beautiful day.

Experience Hanna´s unique mix of mindfulness, yoga and meditation practices, blended with sound and music. Bringing lightness and ease into your practice, to enjoy every breathe. Her approach is one of guidance for self-guidance, helping you to tap into your own inner wisdom and listening to your bodily needs. Approaching yoga asana, the phsyical practice of yoga from both sides: Relaxation and activation which both must be balanced in order to feel whole and healthy. 

Using her background in psychology and having applied the traditional ashtanga yoga practice in a therapeutic setting for people with a major depressive disorder to enhance mindfulness and daily mood, she is able to fit her teachings to any level and physcial condition. Her teaching style is open-heartedly, joyfully and compassionately - the values that she practices herself on a daily basis.

Your Organizer

Hanna Winkler
I love travelling and I love connecting it with yoga, mindfulness and a unique perspective: Learning to focus in a way that feels good and take those insights back home, incorprating them into every day life. In everything I do - personally and professionally - I focus on directing the mind in a way that fosters and allows more well-being, health, joy and fun. My studies in psychology, yoga, theta healing and music support this goal from a scientific as well as from a spiritual side. Check our more retreats on my website: www. Every year different countries, topics and elements. For your inspiration and requests I am always grateful - everything is possible. Live the story you want to tell. - S. Topaz
