1. Theme:

Here and now is where the action is, but too often our mind disagrees and takes us away from the present moment and back into the past or into the future. Through asana practice, meditation, breath work, talking and listening we will learn to stay present more often. The capacity to do so is like a muscle that needs exercising.

2. About the house

Kornspeicher Mauritz is a beautifully modernised old granary, nestled between cornfields, meadows and the bay, in the village of Zicker in the south east of the holiday island of Rügen. With the sea only 1,5 kilometers away, unspoilt beaches invite you to stroll along them and to gaze into the distance, across the Greifswalder Bodden and out to the open sea.

We will have two bright and spacious apartments all to ourselves: a 450 sqm maisonette and a 250 sqm loft with open-planned living areas, several bathrooms, an open kitchen, a fireplace and sauna. The yoga studio, which is located in the loft, has floor heating.

3. How to get there

Kornspeicher Mauritz is located on the Zudar peninsula in the south-east of Rügen, about 25 mins away from Bergen (Rügen). The most convenient way to reach Kornspeicher Mauritz is by car, which takes about 3,5 hrs from Berlin.

Please click here for location details.

Alternatively you can go to Bergen (Rügen) by train. A combination of a Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket (going to Rügen on Thursday) and a Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket (back to Berlin on Sunday) costs €24 return per person, if the group ticket (€120 for 5 people return) is shared by 5 people.

Public transport from Bergen to Kornspeicher Mauritz is very restricted in November, as it will be off-season. You will therefore depend on a taxi or pick-up service from Bergen to Kornspeicher Mauritz. If everybody arrives and leaves at the same time, we will try to organize that for you. If there are free seats in cars, we will also happily assist you in arranging car sharing.

We will ask you not to arrive at the Kornspeicher later than 17:30 on Thursday, as this allows enough time for a relaxed start into the retreat weekend. There will be a Yin&Yang yoga class and meditation at 18:30, which will be followed by dinner at 20:30.

4. What does the price include?

€400 will get you three nights in serene double rooms, three vegan gourmet meals a day (dinner will be a three-course extravaganza of plant-based awesomeness!) and two yoga classes per day as well as daily meditation practice. Space is limited. Max 18 participants to guarantee lots of individual attention.
