Retreats + Workshops
Retreats allow space and time for practice, reflection and understanding. They are considered essential on the path of yoga and have become a common practice since Gautama Buddha has established the Vassa, the rainy season retreat.
We retreat for recreation and recovery, for deepening our practice and knowledge. Our everyday stress will be left for a few days, our body gets calm and our mind becomes more quiet.
During a retreat we will enter the realm of healing: a space where we become more at ease with ourselves and the things that keep us busy. This is the space and time needed to be in touch and re-connect with our selves, our intuition and our true purpose in life.
A workshop is like a "little" one- or two-day retreat. It may be the starting point for your relationship with yoga or some hours within a circle of like-minded people who want to tap deeper. We spend some hours on a certain aspect or subject related to yoga to be motivated and inspired.
We will be reminded, that it is beautiful to learn without pressure and that there is a lot we can still find out about ourselves and life itself.

Dedicate these 3 days to yourself. Nourish your heart and soul through a daily Yoga practice and Meditation in the midst of Austria’s beautiful nature. Enjoy the fresh air and forest while recharging during our foundation-based, restorative Yoga sequences, Meditation and healing silence. We have a daily schedule including free time for yourself. We will be a delicate group trying to adapt the schedule to the weather and everyone’s needs in order to find ease.
Time to re-connect.
A retreat or workshop has the capacity to create a "needed break" from your daily life. It also allows you to spend some hours or days for yourself, within a "save space". You give time to what needs time. You will immerse into subjects that are dear to you or where you feel drawn to.
We often have a hard time letting go our fears and pains, because we are afraid of the unknown. Sometimes its easier to continue with suffering, because it is familiar to us. But letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
With each breath, with each step we can re-connect.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes. All is a miracle.
If we walk slowly and evenly without rushing towards the future, we become aware that life is available only in the present moment. The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.
"Thanks dear Barbara for the five days that felt like 4 weeks and could have lasted another week.
Thank you also for your knowledge: It has motivated me very much to dive deeper into my own yoga path again.
Thank you also for your incredible intuition and empathy that always makes it possible to allow what is wild and dangerous :)
Thank you for the wonderful silent retreat."
