Spring is the perfect time of year to reset and prepare for the busy summer months ahead, and what better way to do that than by taking some ‘me time’ and treating yourself to a wonderfully restorative retreat?
The aptly named ‘Spring Awakening’ yoga retreat will help you de-stress, refocus, and harmonise the body and mind. From 15-19 April 2020 yoga teacher Katharina Pass will guide you through 5 amazing days of getting back to your roots while embracing new beginnings. By focusing your energy inwards, you can decide: who would I like to be? What makes me happy? What do I want to let go of? All while practicing love, acceptance and appreciation for yourself.
“These days we are so driven by our mind, rushing through the day, trying to fit in everything we can to be accepted, to be ‘good enough’, and fulfilling the expectations of others and ourselves. We try so hard to find what we are missing- to be happier, to be healthy, or to be finally accepted, but the truth is we have to take a look inside. We have to come out of our head and into our heart space.” – Katharina
The Teacher – Katharina Pass
Katharina was born and raised in Germany, and now resides in Mallorca where she is living her dream life. With a background in ballet, Pilates and yoga, and as a fully qualified personal trainer and holistic health coach Katharina knows how to gently guide you to find balance during the 5-day retreat.
In her work as a yoga teacher, she creates balance on a physical and emotional level and helps with pain relief and other restrictions with targeted postures and breathing techniques.
“Through gentle postures, flowing sequences, breathing and meditative techniques, I guide my students into the practice of yoga. I understand yoga as something that goes beyond physical exercise – although it does great things for physical health, for me, yoga means helping people to discover their inner strength and following their intuition.”
