April 11 – 14, 2024
Refuelling after the long winter. Get going. Have fun. Reconnect with yourself and activate your energy.
Our spring retreat is all about energy: recharging your batteries while hiking in the high sea climate. Strengthening asanas during yoga, stretching and preparing for the outdoor sports season.
This retreat is designed to be more sporty in keeping with the season: Yoga in the morning to wake up, a longer hike through the unique nature of Borkum after breakfast, and another yoga session in the afternoon, also on the beach if the weather is very good. The retreat is designed to revitalise body and mind.
From our point of view, hiking and yoga complement each other perfectly. Both sports help us to come back to ourselves. They have different effects on the body. Hiking involves long and slow endurance, while yoga stretches and strengthens.
We have chosen the special power place of Borkum (and also Eagle’s home) for the retreat. We are organising the retreat with 2 trainers. Tini is a professional yoga teacher and will lead the yoga sessions, while Karen, as Eagle, will take care of the hiking as usual. As always, we want to offer you a familiar 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 sense of humour 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 called 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 pro. I always offer you recommendations – you decide whether you want to implement them. I have made it my mission to awaken your laughter as you move into the deepest asanas. I am known for my unique approach of combining hot stones, tuning forks and Reiki to make you vibrate. If you feel like a dose of humour, a pinch of lightness and movement, then let’s get on the mat together and create magic. Namaste with a wink.”
