Bloom Into Freedom


BLOOM INTO FREEDOM creates an expansive space to recognize and harness our potential, our power and our inner wisdom. Nourished and supported by yogic practices of movement, meditation, breathwork and ceremony we leave the structures, the bonds, the endless coils of the mind. We find freedom from inner and outer expectations and restraints and come to experience pure joy, serenity and grace.


Morning practice starts with meditation and yogic breath work that cleanses the body on the physical and energetic level and awakens our spirits. We then flow through dynamic Vinyasa Yoga sequences that strengthen the body and leave us feel energized and balanced. We build the sequences step-by-step learning about the alignment that allows the energies in our body to flow freely and release great healing potential. 

In the afternoon we take our practice further in workshops to understand Asana (posture) and their effect on the muscular and endocrine system, but also on emotions and mental wellbeing (Hatha Yoga). On some days we will indulge in the healing practices of soothing Yin Yoga for deep tissue release.

Special offerings

Yoga Nidra or the psychic sleep is a guided deeply relaxing meditation. As the perceived bond to the body dissolves, we get to let go of old blockages and instead plant seeds of positive intention deep into our subconscious for them to blossom and manifest in our lives. 

 Nadabrahma stands for the universal, divine sound. Everything is in vibration. Thus, everything produces sound and is touched and influenced by sound. In this active mediation we use ancient humming techniques to free the body and the mind from tension and open ourselves up to offering and receiving divine energy.

Trataka is a light meditation and a yogic purification exercise. Gazing into a candle flame we promote concentration and cleanse the eyes. In this ceremony we remove veils from our perception, clarify our vision and intuition, and open ourselves to seeing beyond the physical gaze
