Feedback from my March 2023 retreat:

“Kristin, you have such an innate sensibility about the group and individual needs–that I can honestly say that you carried and held the weekend for us all so well. Both the overall structure of the three days and the individual sessions–and even the discrete gestures flowed seamlessly. Your grace and humor, your honesty and kindness encourages forgiveness and joy in ourselves.” –L.G.

“A thousand times THANK YOU for this wonderful weekend, dear Kristin! Your beautiful and soothing energy and guidance is a true inspiration.”

More Joy, Less Drama–A Yoga and Meditation Weekend

Kristin Tovson
Spring Retreat, Rosenwaldhof (just outside Berlin)
April 26th-28th, 2024

Nurture your body, mind and spirit with a weekend in the country! April 26-28th (Friday evening-Sunday afternoon)

Join me for a rejuvenating wellness weekend of both invigorating and relaxing yoga, breath work, and meditation, while finding strength and inspiration from the surrounding nature. This retreat is your opportunity to unplug from daily life, to recharge and reconnect to yourself and your community.

As someone who has struggled on and off with depression, I’ve found my yoga practice to be a way to find resilience, to change the channel of negativity, to rewire my thinking and connect to myself in a way that brings joy and appreciation of things as they are.

We’ll be working with these ideas, using our practice as a tool to explore our physicality in a fun and safe environment. We’ll get moving with some creative Vinyasa sequencing that perhaps challenges our habits and what we think we are capable of.  The weekend will also include restorative practices, breath work, and mindfulness and contemplative meditation sessions around the themes of gratitude and loving-kindness.

Rosenwaldhof is located in nearby Brandenburg, near the Havel River, with its lush forest and nearby lakes. Only an hour from Berlin, the center offers organic vegetarian home-cooked fare and a magnificent setting for walking, cycling, or a climb up to the 108m Götzer Berg with its panoramic views. Massages are also available and must be booked directly through the retreat center.
