Connection to Core Weekend Retreat

June 19 @ 08:00 - June 21 @ 17:00

510chf - 847chf

Summer Solstice yoga and connection weekend in the alps! Our 3rd annual summer retreat is back in Hotel Balance in the magic of the Swiss alps. I am happy to teach with my dear friend Ceylan again this year. This is one of my favourite events of the year. The combination of the surroundings with relaxed and dynamic yoga practices grounding us in the body and the integrating work to connect with our wholeness gives me a lot of joy.

The venue is amazing with a carefully maintained, traditonal Swiss feeling. They specialize in macrobiotic, vegetarian food and just take great care of us! Le Granges is 1h40min drive from Geneva center, and for more information about the hotel, its beautiful surroundings and “bio pool”, check it here .


Yoga Teacher & Nutrition Healthy Living Coach

Ceylan is a 500hour Yoga Alliance Certified Advanced teacher and a Yoga Teacher Trainer.

She has done trainings in India and Switzerland on anatomy, spiritual and mind works of yoga philosophy. She is also a certified Antastha Yoga teacher, a unique style using blindfolds during the yoga practice, allowing the students to explore a much deeper experience in yoga.

Ceylan is a certified health coach and gives workshops on healthier living, cooking and shares her nutritious and delicious recipes, tips and ideas for a gourmet, fit and healthy life.

Mironel De Wilde

Yoga teacher and Non-Violent Communication trainer

Mironel de Wilde is a yoga teacher and Non-Violent Communication trainer who is half Canadian and half European. At an early age he connected with Tibetan Buddhist teachings and Native Canadian shamanic practices which opened the world of spiritual discovery to him.

He traveled to India in 2001 where he found the Mahasiddha tantra yoga teachings and he started teaching in 2004. His yoga path and teaching include a gentle, deep style of hatha yoga, the integrating, energy-based approach of Tantra and the esoteric philosophy and practice of Kashmir Shaivism.

When Mironel encountered Non-Violent Communication (NVC), it opened a new world of self-understanding and acceptance for him. It has become a way to cultivate deep compassion and self-compassion which he loves to share. His focus is on offering tools and inspiration for self-growth to support deep connection with ourselves and each other so that we can live in full authenticity. He also makes films as an expression of his discoveries and learning on the Path.
