Join yellow yoga teachers Valerie and Sarah for a 4-day yoga retreat in a very special place in the middle of nature – Breitenteicher Mühle in Brandenburg.

Theme: ‘Curiosity & Connection’
Sleep, eat, work, yoga, repeat…even when making space for self-care in our hectic modern schedules we sometimes slip into auto-pilot mode. This can get in the way of genuine deep connection and union – in other words, yoga.
Busy and goal-oriented we overlook all that is already present.
We invite you to pause, to rediscover the power of curiosity and connection, on a 4-day retreat at Breitenteicher Mühle in the beautiful surroundings of the Uckermark region.

We will combine stillness, dynamic practices and playful flows, always staying curious, with no attachment to the outcome. We will refresh how we connect to ourselves and others, and explore how to bring curiosity and stillness back into our daily lives.


About the mill
Breitenteicher Mühle is a luxuriously modernized old mill located near the village of Frauenhagen in the middle of a nature reserve in Brandenburg, near the Polish border. The mill is using the water of the river Welse in the district of Angermünde, Uckermark. Find a map here

The mill, a cultural heritage protected building, has been renovated using local and environmentally-friendly materials. Green electricity, as well as heating and warm water, is obtained from water power from the river Welse.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxuriously furnished and the yoga studio is beautiful and full of light. There will be a campfire every night and also one sauna evening in a charming, cabin-style “Bauwagen”. The kitchen offers vegetarian (optional vegan) and organic food cooked with mainly local products, including ingredients that come directly from the fruit and vegetable garden and beekeeping farm on site.

How to get there
From Berlin it takes about an hour and a half to drive there (depending on traffic). The train to Angermünde takes about an hour and leaves hourly. We will try to organize car sharing and train groups, so you can share the petrol or you can buy a Brandenburg ticket together (29 Euro – 5 people). From Angermünde train station you can take a local bus which leaves every hour to Welsow, Mitte. From there it is a 20-minute walk to Breitenteicher Mühle. You are welcome to arrive any time between 15.30 and 16.30 pm on Thursday. We invite you to join the welcoming circle which starts at 16.30 pm. For more info click here.

Refund policy
yellow yoga is a non-profit project and we do our best to offer the lowest price possible and we rely on the commitment of all participants. Reserving your space is binding and the retreat fee cannot be refunded in case of non-participation. If you need to cancel you have the option of organizing another yogi to take your place (fee 20.00 €). This option is only available up to 7 days before the retreat (replacements on such short notice means a lot of re-organisation of transport, invoices, accommodation, etc.).
