Join our teachers Christian, Carrie, Jennifer and Alex for an intensive yoga weekend getaway to the beautiful Brandenburg countryside northeast of Berlin.
This year’s yoga retreat is dedicated to the Power of Change.
The ancient teachings of yoga tell us that nothing is permanent except for change. Yet they also tell us that there is an infinite and eternal part of ourselves that is unchanging, and that our connection to that is the key to happiness.
As summer transitions into autumn, this retreat will explore how yoga can help us maintain equanimity through internal and external shifts while also support proactive personal growth. Through asana, breath work, meditation, and philosophy talks, we will take time to explore and embrace the many paradoxes of yoga – for example cultivating gratitude for the way things are, meanwhile enabling transformation of body, mind and spirit.

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 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 to Stolzenhagen. From there it is a short walk to Ponderosa. You are welcome to arrive any time between 16.30 and 17.30 pm on Friday before the welcoming circle starts at 18.00 pm. For a more detailed map on how to get to Ponderosa please click here.
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.).
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 all will 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.
Yellow yoga is looking forward to welcoming you in this beautiful place!
