I am a complete newbie to yoga and have never been to a yoga retreat before. But I sucked up the courage to attend Anja's 3-day yoga recharge, and I am so glad i did. The weekend was filled with the right amount of yoga, art therapy, Bowen therapy and the most amazing plant-based food. If you ever get the chance to attend one of Anja's yoga retreats, don't hesitate. I think it was perfect for experienced yogis and complete beginners like myself. Anja teaches in a gentle supportive way, always making sure that everyone in the class is practicing at the right level for themselves.

Anja's retreat was a breath of fresh air, providing a step out of the madness of life and giving the opportunity for poise and new discovery. This retreat was an absolute treasure and I highly recommend giving it a try. 

Love what you do!!!

In reflection, the Wellbeing day allowed me to find calm, space and realignment within my body. I left the retreat knowing that I was nourished and rejuvenated after a day spent doing restorative yoga, eating beautifully prepared and presented vegan food and art in the garden. I was ready to go again after taking the day out with Anja. Thank you Anja I will be back!

Anja, your facilitator for this workshop is a trained yoga teacher and has studied art in Europe for 5 years. She is holding regular workshops in retirement homes, for kids and all ages in between.
