A retreat that is as unique, as you are!
Each retreat is an opportunity to feel alive and be present.
It is also invitation to step into a space of magic & miracles, where things can shift & change. From a distant, being able to take inventory of your life, to see what is truly working and what isn’t. Inviting in clarity & allowing insights, a deeper knowing, to bubble up to the surface.
It is my passion to design your personal retreat – may it be 1:1 or in a group setting, online or meeting in person some place on this beautiful planet. Just share your idea with me & I will craft your personal retreat. Meanwhile, have a look at the possible retreat elements & modalities. Envisioning your ideal retreat schedule & outcome.
PURIFY RETREAT this Autumn 2024 & Easter 2025
With the PURIFY Retreat Hanna invites you to asses your life, your body, mind & emotions and cleanse out all that weighs you down, anything which is not in your best interest, supporting your health.
10 days to experience purification as a lifestyle and way of living and practicing yoga. Holistically approaching an inner and outer cleansing process that will bring more lightness, ease and simplicity to your body, mind and your emotions. Deep, gentle, even joyful and profound. Inspired by Bali’s ancient rituals of purification, we will also participate in some of the local rituals, accompanied by priests and Balinese healers.
‘You, the incarnated soul, are like a ballon.
Throw away the weights of impurities and you will be able to fly upwards’

Day 1: Our retreat starts between 2-3 pm with a meet and greet in our private and stunning villa in Ubud, overlooking the jungle with a beautiful infinity pool.

From Day 2 onwards: Starting every morning in silence at 7 am with meditation, chanting and pranayama practices, followed by a 90 – 120 mins Ashtanga based yoga practice instructed by Hanna with one rest day in the middle of the week. Bringing in elements of fitness, pilates and other movement practices to make our bodies more versatile and purifying our lungs with every breath we take.
Adding in Ayurvedic health rituals and detoxifying herbs to our pre yoga morning routine, as we move through the retreat. Detoxifing the body with integrity, without overwhelming the system.

'Purify my heart' - Add on package to the Easter Retreat 2025
Why not extend the joy of being on retreat and diving deep, by literally immersing yourself with Bali’s nature and witnessing the innocence of meeting Bali’s most authentic village areas?
You’ll be staying far away from the touristic sites of Bali, tucked away in jungle (in the north of the island) but close enough to the ocean, to experience not only a different landscape but also a different vibe to the island. We’ll use the down to earth energy to purify our bodies and emotions – fasting with water, coconut water and the local herbal turmeric infusion called Jamu.
The accommodation will be a simple but very very lovely guest house offering ultimate privacy and on request a vegetarian, healthy dishes prepared by the ladies from the village. Mentioning this, the fasting is an invitation and opportunity – not a must!
You’ll have lots of time to reflect, be quiet, breathe and be – overlook the beautiful valley and allow your heart to soften. Hanna will guide you through an individualised yoga practice 90 mins per day. The package will take place either before or after the main retreat with around 1-2 days of break in between.
We’ll be going on a gentle hike through untouched valleys, seeing the island from a locals perspective. Daily yoga classes offering a mix of yin and yang will help you to sweat, detoxify but also to deeply let go.
Transfers to and from the accommodation are NOT included, but can be organised for you. Cost around 500 ooo IDR / 35 Euro one way per car with max. 4 people sharing. Additional coconuts (or meals if required) are NOT yet included in the price – but will be very affordable. Meaning around 3- 10 Euro a day.
222 Euro – payment direct to a third party accommodation & tour organiser

Africa, Safari AND Yoga - 2019
"I knew such a trip is rare on offer. And it was unique!
Back in June 2019, Marie had booked a one week private retreat in Tansania with yoga, mantra chanting, healing modalities & 3 days of safari. It was a first time collaboration with Mosha climbing tours who tailored the trip especially for the two of us.
Read all about her retreat here.
Music & Yoga
"Music is the answer - retreat at home" in collaboration with Sonia Kistner
With a small group of around 6 people we embarked onto a journey from the comfort of our own homes: Meeting at the beautiful Pure, each morning session started with chanting, pranayama & yoga asana. The afternoon workshops varied from a mindfulness walk in the nearby forest to a cacao ceremony & deep relaxation practices.
Silence, Meditation & Reflection
Silent meditation weekend in Bali & Chile 2019
On the quest of cultivating more meaning & presence through a retreat to the inside – staying in silence & learning different approaches to meditation.
In collaboration with the Nomad MBA (now Uprise Academy) and their 3 month special program, I guided three groups of around 30 participants onto a deep dive back to their essence.
