October 21-26, 2019 at the The Bosnian Pyramids
The Bosnian Pyramids are a potent place for healing, transformation and rejuvenation. People from around the world come every year to experience what are believed to be the largest man-made ancient pyramids on earth.
We could not imagine a more perfect place to bring together the sister sciences of Kundalini Yoga, Ayurveda and the ancient art of sound healing. During our 5-day women’s wellness retreat, we will learn about the female hormonal system and ways to balance and recharge, as well as invite resilience, juiciness and vitality back into our life.
Tina Maria and Ulli will share their most cherished teachings and practices through Ayurvedic lectures and self-care tips, optimal nutrition for hormonal health, healing Kundalini yoga kriyas, gong baths, and guided meditations.
We will stay directly at the foothills of the Sun pyramid, at the beautiful, eco-friendly Pyramid Lodge, built and owned by the German bio-engineer Stefan Paul Grúschwitz, who has been guiding groups through the Pyramid tunnels for many years and serves on the advisory board of the pyramid foundation. We will be served organic vegetarian meals, as well as energized spring water from the Pyramid Lodge spring.
