Breath of Summer: 21 June – 23 June 2019 // SOLD OUT!

Posted by on Apr 1, 2019 in Retreats | No Comments

Join us for an inspiring weekend getaway at the beautiful Taubenblau Seminarhaus. Set in Stolzenhagen, just an hour from Berlin by train or car, the house sits on the edge of the Lower Oder Valley National Park. This is a wonderful opportunity to escape the stresses and strains of every day life and enjoy a delightful weekend of yoga, meditation, relaxation and delicious organic vegetarian food.

This is the perfect weekend to devote to yoga: the 21st of June is both the summer solstice and International Yoga Day! Together we’ll enjoy the longest day of the year (and the first day of summer) celebrating the change of seasons and transformational power of yoga.




Treat yourself to a revitalizing weekend away where you will deepen your yoga practice, reconnect with yourself and nature and nourish your mind and body. You will not only take your yoga practice to another level but also learn about the connection between yoga and Indian history. There will be plenty of opportunities to spend time in nature. You can choose from guided tail running or hiking or just sneak away and enjoy your book in the sun.

Both beginners and seasoned practitioners are welcome. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies just let us know; we can accommodate you. Spaces are limited to the first 18 sign-ups so reserve your spot early.

Marta has been sharing her passion for yoga through teaching for the past seven years. Her gentle yet motivating approach will make you feel safe and inspire you to go deeper into your own practice. Read more about Marta’s path here.

Marcus is an avid yogi, trail-runner and historian. He will be there to assist Marta’s teaching, take you out on runs and surprise you with the breadth of his historical knowledge – yoga related, local and otherwise.

* “Mysore Style” yoga is named after the city in India where it originated. The class is not ‘led’ as a whole but rather the students follow a sequence of postures and receive one-on-one guidance where needed. Students practice at their own pace, enveloped by the energy and inspiration of other students in the room. It’s a great way to start your yoga journey.

• tuition for everything on the schedule
• individualized attention with small group size
• two nights of accommodation
• organic vegetarian food: brunch, afternoon snack and dinner
• yoga mats and props (if you have your own mat please bring it)
• guided hikes and trail running
