With this retreat you have the chance to invite your partner to join you. Both men and women benefit from a holistic approach to working on a healthy mind in a healthy body and from the healing and energizing capacities of yoga, meditation, healthy food, silence and nature. With this Rewild Yourself retreat you do not only focus on yoga and meditation. You will be in the middle of a 100 square kilometre nature reserve with many experiences centered in nature. You participate in a solo-in-nature experience and you go hiking and swimming in the wild. Bring your partner and Rewild Together.
You do not need any yoga or meditation experience
The pictures you often see from yogis are of the extreme. It looks as if yoga is a practice to create the perfect body. The oldest texts with instructions about yoga have been written about 200 years before our time. Yoga is not an objective, it is a tool on your path of personal growth and on your path to rebalance and re-energize your mind and body. To join this retreat you can be an experienced yogi and we will guide you on how you can deepen your practice. If you have little or even no yoga or meditation experience this is OK too. You only need to have an open mind and a will to surrender to what is awaiting you. And we will introduce you to what yoga, meditation and mindfulness can do for you.
Leave behind everything that you are carrying but do not need any more in your life. Take away new insights, learnings and joy for your daily activities in both your personal and professional life.
