I have always done a lot of sports and at some point realized that I needed something to bring me more balance in my demanding daily life. During a retreat in Guatemala I finally fell in love with yoga. Since then, I've tried different styles of yoga and discovered my passion for powerful Vinyasa and Rocket Yoga, which combine demanding, energetic movements with breath and a focus on mindfulness.

I have attended several Rocket Teacher Trainings by David Kyle, Tiago Rochas and Lita Satva and have been much inspired by their unique styles, technique and energy. My motivation as a teacher is to share, multiply and pass on this feeling and positive energy to you and help you to grow in your practice.

What awaits you at this retreat?

Yoga Practice

In order for you to strengthen your practice as well as rewind during the retreat, we will also have a relaxing yoga session in addition to the daily Rocket class.

Rocket Ashtanga Vinyasa is a style developed in the 80's by Larry Schultz, a dedicated student of the founder of Ashtanga Yoga - Patthabi Jois. Rocket consists of a sequence of asanas based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary and Intermediate series.

The Rocket series is considered an all-encompassing practice and makes the powerful sequences of Ashtanga yoga accessible to all body types and experience levels. Because of the sequence of asanas, strength and flexibility are also built quickly. This is also the reason for the name: It's called Rocket because it gets you there faster.

The Rocket sequences are 3 set basic sequences that can be creatively built upon so that both experienced beginners and very advanced yogis who like challenging arm balances and inversions alike get their fill.

The Yin Yoga practice in the evening gives you the perfect balance to the powerful, energetic Rocket class in the morning. Yin aims more at stretching and relaxing the deep connective tissues (fascia, joints, ligaments). It consists of individual poses that are held for longer periods of time - supported by props such as bolsters and blocks. Thus, Yin offers a lot of space for meditation and inner peace and offers the chance to focus on the physical and mental sensations.
