Join yellow yoga teachers Anya, Michael and Éric for an intensive yoga weekend getaway to the beautiful Brandenburg countryside northeast of Berlin.

Theme: “It’s like this now – surrendering to what is.”
During this retreat we will share a practice of Vinyasa Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, meditation and chanting mantras. We will also work to cultivate mindful communication and mindful touch. These tools will help us to experience surrendering, a state of mind that allows us to expand our awareness to a bigger, more compassionate picture of the present moment. Join Anya, Éric and Michael for a transformative and grounding weekend in beautiful Ponderosa.

About the house
Ponderosa is a gorgeous artists’ community run by wonderful and friendly people! There are many volunteers helping and the place has its own rhythm and ideology. We have booked two big dance studios and the Sauna will be heated on Saturday evening. There will be a campfires in the evening. It will be amazing – with nice food, nature, and space for breathing and creativity. If we are lucky there will even be some spontaneous performances to enjoy.

How to get there
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 carsharing and train-groups, so you can share the petrol or you can buy a Brandenburg ticket together (29 Euro – 5 people). We will try to arrange a couple of Ruf-Taxis to correspond with the train arrival times at the train station in Angermünde.It would be good if the group arrives around 16.30 on Friday, so there is time to show you around and to explain the way of communication. We will stay on Sunday afternoon for an excursion, or a swim in the canal and leave Sunday early evening. For more info click here.

Please note

In summer there are many dance and performance workshops and trainings during the week (Porch-training program and international guests). So please be aware, we will not have the place for us alone and we will be all very respectful to guard each others privacy. There’s enough space to find solitude in the surrounding nature and at Ponderosa area, which is quite spacious. Please be informed that the toilet/bathrooms are very simple at Ponderosa. We would ask each of you to help the cooking team one time to prepare the food (cutting vegetables for half an hour for example). We will all clean our dishes after the meal ourselves. Karma yoga can be fun, too!

Please understand, that Ponderosa is not a hotel or a service provider – it is a self-organized artist space and we are guests there. Please adapt your communication and expectation to this situation.
