BIO AND MORE INFO ABOUT TEACHERS AND DETOX-SPECIALISTS FOR THIS RETREAT: ANJA KUEHNEL+TEAM & CANTEAM

Anja Kühnel

ANJA KÜHNEL + TEAM = JIVAMUKTI YOGA CLASSES
Anja has been a devoted student of Jivamukti Yoga founders Sharon Gannon and David Life since she first met them in 2000 while temporarily living in New York. She has been directing her two Berlin Jivamukti Yoga Centers and their Jivamukti Apprenticeship Teacher Training program since 2008 and is a regular facilitator of the international Jivamukti Teacher Trainings. If time allows, she accepts one of the many invitations to teach workshops worldwide. She also has been teaching intensive international Jivamukti Yoga retreats worldwide for a number of years now, often together with internationally renowned teachers like Sharon Gannon, David Life, Manorama and Dechen Thurman. Privately, she has a special interest in studying the teachings of Vedanta and Sanskrit and adopting rescued dogs.

As often on international retreats and at home in Berlin, Anja will be assisted by a Jivamukti teacher, to make sure that everyone will be guided and assisted individually.

DETOX MASSAGE WITH JULI WERNER (OPTIONAL)
I love to touch. It is unbelievable what is possible through a touch. Awareness can grow with a conscious touch. Far away from concepts, beliefs or judgement, we get in touch with simplicity. Then total relaxation is possible. Everything is okay as it is. We are arriving in our inner home with ourselves. Massage is always leading inwards. I am supporting this inner acceptance through touch, so you can check in with yourself and be okay with your inner state. I am looking forward to a common travel into the now, towards Love.

JULI’S MASSAGE TECHNIQUES:

AYURVEDIC YOGA MASSAGE: Relaxing whole body massage, to soften the body and dissolve old and deep rooted tensions. For straightening the body and bringing you back to balance through soft stretches. Stimulating your blood circulation and deepening and relaxing your breath.

DEEP TISSUE MESSAGE: Loosening up deep tissues with stroking movements.

REBALANCING: Was developed in the Osho-community and is taught since 1980. It was the first real connection of deep tissue massage, soft touch, “flowing” touch and meditation. The focus here is always on loving the body and becoming more aware of the body.

JOINT-RELEASE-TECHNIQUE: Joint release through rhythmic swinging and shaking. The body is moved in a passive way by becoming aware of holding and movement patterns.

DETOX RETREAT MASSAGE PRICES: 60min=99 EUR, 30min=63 EUR.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE RETREAT LOCATION AND ACCOMODATION

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

Tucked away in a remote corner of Rügen, amongst wheat fields, paddocks, arrays of bird nests, and bays of the Baltic, at the end of a tiny road, there is small village with a great historic granary, constructed in 1904.

Today the granary has been sensibly restored, keeping most of the details from the old design and thus retaining a generous and enchanting air with bright loft-like spaces that are perfect for practice and relaxation. Just the right space for those who seek to breathe deeply again.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

In addition to the cozy rooms, there are numerous lounges and fireplaces all over the building for hanging out and having interesting conversations as well as quiet alcoves to read a book. In the evenings we can warm ourselves in front of the fireplaces or in the sauna and can also enjoy the view from the big wooden terraces over the virtually untouched nature around us.

Generous 1.000 sqm over two stories, a 150+ sqm loft for yoga classes, huge open style kitchen, saunas and fireplaces, huge terraces: Our 1904 granary which we have exclusively for our groups just embodies freedom, luxury, and coziness. A perfect venue to retreat, detox and immerse into the teachings of Jivamukti Yoga.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

The nearby bird colony and beaches allow for spectacular walks and swims under the big skies of Germany’s north. The short walk to the beach alone allows one to dive back into nature. In the evenings, there are a number of places to take it easy: in the sauna, around the fireplaces, or on the many terraces the site has to offer.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

This is the ideal setting to enjoy the clear air in between yoga classes before coming back into our cozy space with Sauna and radiant floor heating, which you might recognize from our Jivamukti Studio in Berlin Mitte.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

Our old yet very modern granary on Rügen is spoiling us with its warm atmosphere, sauna and a lot of space to arrive. In pure and remote nature we can recharge our energies and relax and detox together with Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation in order to leave behind the old year and start fresh in 2019.

MORE INFORMATION ON JIVAMUKTI YOGA AND THE DETOX-PROGRAM

Italien

THE JIVAMUKTI YOGA PROGRAM: Advanced Certified Jivamukti teacher Anja Kühnel will teach a 2-3 hour Jivamukti Yoga class every morning and evening with the exception of arrival and departure days; see preliminary program below. These will be intense and deep “workshop-style” classes with a focus on detox, in which Anja is using her years-long experience in teaching numerous international Jivamukti yoga retreats. We will experience different aspects of Jivamukti Yoga, like Asanas, Kriyas, Pranayama and Yoga Philosophy. Guided meditations will be offered every morning and Satsang/ chanting every evening.

The yoga practice will be perfectly complemented with carefully chosen detox food, made by the Jivamukti Canteen, as well as hikes, jogging, sauna sessions and massages for an extra charge; please let us know in the registration form. Every day we offer special detox sauna infusions and you can book special purging sauna and spa treatments and personal detox coachings for an extra charge.

As we recommended, there is the option of arriving a day earlier, Thursday, January 24 and leave a day later, Monday January 28, so we planned ahead for everyone who wants to have an even more deep experience.

If there are non-german-speaking friend among us, we will make sure that all classes are understood by everyone.

Jivamukti Rügen Retreat

THE FOOD: All ingredients in the kitchen of the Jivamukti Canteen are 100% plant-based – vegan, organic and nutritious. During our detox retreat, you won’t find any  sugar, gluten or other unhealthy things on your plate. We will increase the use of alkaline-rich foods to neutralize and support your body’s natural detoxification process. The balanced relation between raw and cooked/ baked ingredients and the chosen times for group meals are designed to support the biorhythm of your body and will also help your yoga practice, leaving you grounded and well rested. Seasonal fresh fruits and veggies as our main energy provider, accompanied by optimal protein sources with a high organic availability as well as the healthiest fats and oils, spices and herbs, will inspire us to the greatest creations in canteen style, so that we can fully express ourselves in the open retreat kitchen. Colorful salad creations, creamy soups and purees, savory and crunchy stews and side dishes, surprising toppings, sweets without guilt… But always tasty and filling, and always made with Love.
All meals, drinks and snacks are arranged and well-balanced to harmonize your digestive system and support the purging that starts in your intestines. Don’t worry! We are not talking of uncomfortable, smelly methods, but the softest and most comfortable way to leverage your digestion. You will be surprised what mother nature has to offer, in order to bring more detox in your life, even after the retreat.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: FOR PROLONGING YOUR STAY (INCL. YOGA AND FOOD ON THESE DAYS):
A long weekend is over too fast and we get sad to have to return too quickly, especially considering the travel effort to arrive. For everyone who shares our opinion and is able to invest a bit more time, we rented the granary for 5 days so you can start this retreat softly on Thursday let it fade away into Monday afternoon. We would be thrilled if you are arriving early with us and/or leave later and offer the following options (including additional detox food and yoga program) for a deeper experience:

Arrive 1 day earlier – Thursday from 14:30 on: +99 EUR
This small surcharge includes 1 additional night (plus your chosen room upgrade option), 2 additional yoga classes, 3 additional meals and 24 hours more at the sea. This means a more intimate setting, since usually there are fewer participants, and gives the advantage of arriving during an off-peak time, avoiding the stress of rush hour. See also the preliminary schedule in the drop-down-menu higher above.

Arrive ½ day earlier – Friday from 08:00 on: +45 EUR
This small surcharge includes 1 additional yoga class, 1 additional brunch and a couple of hours more at the sea. Please know that you can move into your room only after 14:00 of your arrival day, even though we try our best to have your rooms ready before. There is a train ride at 4:48 from Berlin that arrives at 8:18 in Samtens. If people book this train, we will adapt the schedule for the morning class accordingly.

Stay ½ day longer – until Sunday evening: +45 EUR
This small surcharge includes 1 additional yoga class + Satsang, 2 additional meals (Tea-time + dinner) and a couple of hours more at the sea for everyone who wants to leave Sunday evening or night. Please be aware that you have to check out from your booked room at 12:00 on your departure day. Although we will try to arrange a late check-out for you, it cannot be guaranteed. The latest train departs at 19:41 from Samtens and will arrive in Berlin at 23:28 or in Hamburg at 23:50.

Stay 1 day longer – until Monday 12:00: +99 EUR
For everyone who wants to leave calmly on Monday, this small surcharge includes 2 additional nights (plus your chosen room upgrade option), 2 additional yoga classes + Satsang, 3 additional meals and 24 hours more at the sea. This means a more intimate setting, since usually there are fewer participants, and with the advantage of arriving during an off-peak time, avoiding the stress of rush hour. See also the preliminary schedule in the drop-down-menu higher above.

Stay 2 full days longer – from Thursday 14:30 until Monday 12:00: +180 EUR
For everyone who wants to arrive and leave calmly on Thursday/Monday, this surcharge includes 2 additional nights (plus your chosen room upgrade option), 4 additional yoga classes + Satsang, 6 additional meals and 48 hours more at the sea. This means a more intimate setting, since usually there are fewer participants, and with the advantage of arriving during an off-peak time, avoiding the stress of rush hour. See also the preliminary schedule in the drop-down-menu higher above.

LOYALITY DISCOUNTS: 18 EUR discount for these reasons (cumulative): (1) You have an ongoing Jivamukti Berlin Unlimited contract. (2)You have been part of one (or more) Jivamukti Yoga Retreats (sorry, only 1x 18 EUR discount, even though you have been part of numerous retreats) (3) You are a registered Jivamukti Yoga Teacher.

OPTIONAL TRAVEL SERVICES THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE BASE PRICE:

  • Travel costs to and from the granary are NOT included in the price and has to be organized and paid for on your own. We recommend the train connection Berlin-Hbf. => Samtens, which leaves Thursday and Friday with a transit in Stralsund at 10:32 from Berlin-Hbf and arrives in time for Check-in at 14:18. This train departs every hour and whoever wants to arrive very early on Friday to participate at the morning yoga class (see Early Checkin), could take the train at 4:42 to arrive in Samtens at 8:18.For the departure day, there is a train connection at 12:37 that arrives in Berlin at 16:15. There are similar good connections from all Germany cities, as Hamburg 10:17 => 14:18 and so on. The regular price per ride with Deutsche Bahn is around 46EUR, but with a clever combination of sharing a ‘Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket’ (on Thursday) and a ‘Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket) back to Berlin on Sunday, 5 persons can travel for 120 EUR (24 EUR p.p. for the round trip).
  • It is 16km from Samtens to the granary. We can offer you a pick-up shuttle service for 18 EUR p.p., if there are minimum two persons arriving at the same time.
  • Alternatively it is definitely possible to arrive by car – approximately 3,5hrs drive from Berlin
  • We are happy to help with carpooling organization. We can help you with finding people to share a car and can offer a limited number of shuttle spots from Berlin (108 EUR p.p.)

CANCELLATION AND CURTAILMENT INSURANCE: As we do need to be able to depend on your booking, there is a cancellation fee charged if you cannot take part in the retreat/intensive booked due to reason out of our control (like sickness etc.). Please read the details in the registration form on this. This is why we strongly recommend that you book a cancellation and curtailment insurance (starts under 20 EUR and is one of the three best curtailment insurances, by Stiftung Warentest), which you can do in the registration form.
