6-day yoga forest retreat in the Odenwald region on the Nibelungen hiking trail with Anna Galt, Noa Amir and Victoria Simpson

We invite you to our newborn Yellow yoga community center in the forest in the heart of Germany for a 6-day/5-night retreat with daily Kundalini, yin, restorative, power yoga, or breathing practice, sound trips, talks, hiking excursions, massages, sweat huts, bonfires, singing circles and meditations. Connect with your strength, with mother earth and your ancestors and open a room for your own transformation and self-healing.

Our retreats in the Gebhardshütte are intended as community retreats based on karma yoga, i.e. we cook together and everyone helps out.This allows us to enable longer retreats with more program for little money. Whether earthing while gardening or powering while hacking wood, everything is welcome.

About the Yellow Yoga Gebhardshütte

Hidden in the Odenwald directly on the Nibelungensteig  the founder of Yellow Yoga Claudia and her family found a place that was previously a hiking hostel. This place has started to grow slowly but steadily since this year. It is located away from civilization with plenty of space in the garden, a large cozy farmer’s kitchen with a dining room for 30 people, several balconies, lovingly designed rooms and a smaller mediation room (for 15 yogis). The equipment is rather simple, authentic, familiar, do not expect it luxury or perfection. We try with vintage furniture and little money – with love to make the place accessible for our community.

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 4 days before the retreat (replacements on such short notice means a lot of re-organisation of transport, invoices, accommodation, etc.)
