The Venue

I will be leading this retreat at Seminarhaus-Shanti retreat centre in Germany. The centre is located on the edge of a forest, near Bad-Meinberg, which is about 80Km from Hannover.


 The retreat will be led by Tristan Dorling and Gemma Van Der Wal.


 The retreat will be taught in English with translation into German by Bernd Prokop.

The yoga

Practices will include Asanas, Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama and Samyama as well as other yoga practices.  The focus of the retreat will be on the cultivation of inner silence, purification using pranayama and self-inquiry (jnana yoga). During the retreat, we will also be looking at some of the energetic practices of yoga such as bastrika and kechari mudra.

This retreat is suitable for people of all levels of ability. Full instructions on practice will be given.


Food served at the centre is vegetarian and vegan.  We can also cater for special diets such as gluten free, if you let us know in advance. The food is organic.

There will be two meals served each day- brunch and dinner.
