Info

Okreblue is a beautiful eco retreat center with a cozy and warm home-away-from-home feeling. This is important to us: we prefer to NOT arrange retreats at big and impersonal hotel chains. The owners of Okreblue are friends of ours; they used to spend every winter season in Goa, which adds to the feeling of “home”. We had a beautiful experience at Okreblue in 2018 and we are so excited to welcome you to join us for another retreat!

All levels are welcome 
Do you want to rest, practice yoga, learn more about your body and your yoga practice, meditate, dance, have fun and connect with new people, eat yummy and healthy food? Then this is the retreat for you. All levels welcome: for the daily physical practice, the group will be split into two smaller groups: basic and advanced: 20 people in each group. We have space for 40 people but only the morning meditaitons and workshops will be as a full group. All the yoga classes have 20 people only, with two teachers in each class, meaning you will always get a lot of personal attention if you want.

Jennie, Josefin, Melanie and Stu have worked together for years and all share a passion for teaching yoga and making it authentic and real and relevant to you and your body. Together we will teach you about basic anatomy and how it is relevant to YOUR body and we will devise a special asana sequence just for you.You will learn about alignment and how to work towards openness and stability in your body and mind. We include dynamic ashtanga vinyasa yoga and vinyasa flow and restful restorative, yin yoga and meditation.
