Winter Yoga and Meditation Retreat

with Anya and Naama in Brandenburg

This winter retreat will create the time and space to slow down in a unique way. Step out of your daily routine and into a state of deep listening to yourself and to nature. Two experienced teachers will create an environment for exploration, joyful learning, and growth.

Our methods and their effects:

We will use few methods to deepen connections to ourselves and our bodies: Mindfulness meditation, Pranayama (breathing exercises), and Asana (postures & movements). These practices will be enriched by other modalities, including Feldenkrais and movement exploration. 

         We will explore and learn how to:

•   Observe habits and explore possibilities for change

•   Help recover from and prevent injury and pain

  • Create space in our bodies and mnd
  • Become intimate with ourselves and what around us
  • shift away from distraction, anxiety and overthinking, into a state of greater objectivity, grounding and ease.

About us

Anya (will teach meditation)

Anya founded Yoga in English Berlin in 2009. She aims to teach the whole path of Yoga by integrating meditation and key philosophy teachings for a happier, calmer experience of daily life. 

Originally from the UK, over the past decade she has taught mostly in Berlin where she is based and also travels abroad regularly to work as a guest teacher in Portugal, Bali and Thailand. Alongside teaching, she remains a committed student of Yoga and Vedānta philosophy and meditation, and takes regular advanced trainings and personal retreats. 

The style of meditation she teaches is rooted in mindfulness and aims to provide both the immediate benefits of a calm mind and longer-term personal growth. Her meditations invite you to observe automatic thought patterns and habits of reactivity and create more space around them. She encourages participants to observe inner dialogue and recognise where and how we can discover a more conscious, content experience of daily life. 

Her classes always provide a pressure-free environment. She teaches with a relaxed approach where everyone – all bodies, minds, experience levels and backgrounds – is very welcome.
