This September was a very special one for me. I again took a long train ride from Southern Germany to the Atlantic Coast in Western France. Where, on the island of Île de Ré, cooked, taught and lead a week long Yoga and Photography Retreat, Getaway to the Sea.
This year I had the pleasure of working with my dear Friend Julia Vanessa Utsch, a brilliant photographer and Yin Yoga instructor. Along with our small group of guests, we spend 8 beautiful days outdoors from sunrise to sunset. Stretching, meditating, walking, cycling, photographing and cooking. On the beach, in the forest, in the garden and on the terrace.
It is hard to describe a week like this in words. But I will try to do my best, and let the photos do the rest of the talking. It was slow, calm, curing, present, and resting. It was warm and refreshing, grounding and eye opening. It was exciting, joyous, and uplifting. It was many many things. And all of them positive. Thank you ladies for all of your good vibes, trust, and commitment to our project. We love how it turned out, and hope you do too. I learned more about myself and about others, and am so inspired to do it all over again. To share this place and our knowledge and love for life with one another.
Below are some images from the week on this beautiful island that I have learned to call one of my many homes. If you are interested in joining us, please SAVE THE DATE May 30th – JUNE 6th 2020. Julia and I will be leading our second retreat during this time, in the same location, and would love for you to join us. I will be posting more information on my website and social media channels soon. Click here for more information on Julias site. ENJOY!
