November 16 – 19, 2023

A retreat for body and soul

Center yourself once again before the stressful pre-Christmas period begins. Take a deep breath while hiking in the salty climate and relax in the yoga practice. Yoga in the morning to wake up, after breakfast a longer, relaxed hike through the unique nature of Borkum, and in the afternoon another yoga session. A balanced mix of recharging your batteries by the sea and finding strength within yourself.

We would like to offer you this special weekend that combines hiking and yoga – because we think: both complement each other perfectly. For this we have chosen the special place of power that is Borkum (and incidentally also Eagle’s home). We are running the retreat with 2 trainers – Tini is a professional yoga teacher and will do the yoga part, Karen as Eagle will do the hiking as usual. As always, we want to offer you a comfortable and pleasantly manageable environment. That’s why the number of participants is limited to 8.

And this is Tini 🙂

“Hello, I’m Tini. I enjoy exercise, have a good sense of humor and therefore often don’t take life and myself too seriously. I love simplicity in things, whether it’s a good coffee in the morning, my minimalist lifestyle or camping with our ever faithful companion named Gustav. My motto is: Happiness is a choice. I am a vinyasa yoga teacher and came to yoga through a car accident. In my yoga classes you are the most important person. I support you in your practice, whether you are a beginner or a yoga professional. In doing so, I always offer you recommendations – whether you want to implement them, it is up to you. My goal is to make you smile as you move into the deepest asanas. I’m known for my unique approach of combining hot stones, tuning forks and Reiki to get you vibrating. If you’re in the mood for a dose of humor, a dash of lightness and movement, let’s get on the mat together and create magic. Namaste with a twinkle.”
