About

Our mission

Inner peace and outer joy. Shine-Yoga is creating real-life experiences that empower and encourage your health & happiness. Either in Yoga retreats, workshops or special Yoga classes. We offer deep connection for like-minded people. The yoga classes aim to connect you deeper with your self, your body, mind and spirit and bring you into a flow with harmony. As a result the experience takes you on a journey that will transform you into a better version of yourself. Re-wild. In a world where so many of our interactions are shaped by technology, our bodies and minds ache for genuine connection in the same way with our true self, with our communities and the natural world. A desire to affect a deeper change and more immediate connection with real nature and community, is our contribution to create intensely joyous experiences.

Real-life experiences

Her joyful, warm personality is contagious the Yoga practice is mindful, empowering and adding more meaning to it, to ultimately take the yoga of the mat to live more energized. For her, the best way to teach and share knowledge is after you have experienced and felt it on your own. She has spent years of her life somewhere wilder for example in Costa Rica, Bali, India, Sri Lanka or Ibiza. All of them are naturally transformative and spiritual places with teachers and friends who taught her many things that are not written in books. She immersed herself in different rituals, cultures, lifestyles, spiritual traditions and personal development work. Now, all this wisdom inspired to connect us from the western world with the wild world that ignites our soul.

The Yoga

Yoga is the most amazing way to explore the mind, body and spirit and create balance with it. It´s a beautiful practice that strengthens + tones your body, opens your heart and expands your mind to all the possibilities that lie within you. We use Yoga as a tool and you choose how much you want to feel. It´s all connected and once we experience and understand the effect that our mind has on our body and vice versa, life feels so much better.

Shine Yoga + Mindful Yoga Anke Graewer + Nancy Goodfellow
.

With a holistic practice you´ll learn to get to know yourself better. Understand what´s really driving you through self-reflection followed by personal evolution. The practice of Yoga is meant to be freeing, to invoke a sense of wholeness and empowerment of the body, mind and soul. Yoga will be helping you release stress and tension from your body and mind, you will learn to connect and move with grace. As a result, better flexibility is a nice side effect. With elements from Anusara, Vinyasa Flow, and Hatha Tantra Yoga methods, incorporating the ancient philosophies + modern spirituality. Like this we are adding more meaning to the practice using the whole spectrum of breath, mantra´s and philosophy. At the end of a yoga class or retreat you´ll feel lighter and more content, energized, stronger and even look radiant and much more ALIVE.
