What are your Retreats about?

Next to sharing our creative ideas for yoga clothing, we also want to share our love for movement. Our motivation is to create a community around the brand and to meet you in person - because real life is awesome.

Our retreats are a combination of yoga, dance and creative things. Next to the movement classes we go out to the beautiful surrounding nature of our location and paint and sketch with our designer Irina.

We invite a lot of different teachers from different movement backgrounds. You find yourself taking classes from 6-8 different teachers and a variety of movements: yoga, Acroyoga, handstands, improvisation dance, tribal fusion belly dance, thai massage, meditation, stretching and flying massage.

As so many different disciplines are offered, the essence of our retreats is to invite you to  e x p l o r e    a n d    r e s e a r c h    d i f f e r e n t    m o v e m e n t s . Some of which you might have never tried, or never thought that you would. And others you might be practicing for years already as part of your movement routine.
