Hi,

my name is Anke, I am the driving force behind Shine-Yoga Retreats.

I am on a mission to bring more connection to people like you, through Yoga, Spirituality, Celebration and real life experiences. Through transformative Yoga and Wellness retreats in striking destinations around the world. Driven by a sense of connection to spirit, movement, deep relaxation and personal evolution. The vision is to increase our health and happiness, feel free, empowered and vibrant. In a world where so many of our interactions are shaped by technology, our bodies and minds ache for genuine connection with our communities and the natural world. For me shared real life experiences are the best way to grow and enjoy life together. My experience tells the story of curiousity, I am a passionate Yogi, empowering coach, healthy food lover, asking the deeper questions in life and striking a balance in different areas with the help of ancient wisdom and modern spirituality paired with science.  I believe that Yoga is the greatest tool for transformation, self-inquiry and healing, and that every person can benefit from taking their yoga practice deeper. We all need to create a healthy and balanced life with great food, exercise, fresh clean air and nature, inspiration and love. Connection to spirit and play to live authentic and happy.

.

Are you looking for more than just the ordinary yoga? Better movements, more connection and energy, fulfillment and joy? Wanting to know the WHY behind it.

Then, we should connect.

// Personal Yoga approach and vision

.

With over 15 years of Yoga practice, 850 hrs training hours accredited by the Yoga Alliance I teach from experience. I am intuitive, authentic and my approach is passionate, knowledgeable and encouraging. The Yoga practice is mindful and we add more meaning to it because the vision is to take the yoga of the mat to live a happier life, vibing a little higher and thriving with grace. During the past years I have been experimenting with holistic life approaches with concepts from the western and the wild world out there. My own journey has let me to exotic countries and those outer adventures eventually shiftet to radical inner adventures and liberation. Along the way I learned wisdom that is not written in books and with more passion than in passionfruit I am sharing sharing this in my teachings.

When I started with Yoga

I had no idea how my life would change

.

For me yoga is the most amazing way to explore the mind, body and spirit and create balance with it, to experience clarity. It´s a beautiful practice that strengthens our body and opens our mind to all the possibilities that lie within you. 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. We all know that in modern civilization, busy is now glorified. It takes concentrated effort to disconnect in a world where Netflix and Instagram are always within reach. When we are so content and connected to our truth, that´s when we start to SHINE from the inside out. (That´s why I call it Shine Yoga)

Having practiced yoga for a long time, I am amazed by the wonders that yoga has brought to my life and that’s also what it can do for you. An acceptance of life´s immense unpredictability has shaped my soul, into feeling:

.

  • empowered + resilient
  • strong + confident
  • connected + loving
  • grounded + relaxed
  • softer + flexible
  • tolerant + liberated
  • simply happier and radiant

.

Even though everything in life changes, my practice is my constant anchor. Same routine and rituals, no matter where I am in this world. Yoga has given me a stronger voice, opened my heart, given me patience and compassion. It´s given me confidence, allowed me to grow through my discomforts and helped me overcome some of my deepest fears.

.

Yoga and creating connection within the community makes me happy. I am a dedicated student and committed, on a journey to uplift and serve with a head full of ideas. Teaching yoga for me is about sharing and helping you to feel great and create a positive change in your life. Having lived in different cultures taught me various techniques to enhance my quality of life.

The best way to teach and share knowledge is after you have experienced and felt it on your own. That´s why I am forever grateful for all experiences I had in my life and give thanks to my teachers for knowledge that is not written in books. During the past years I have been learning and mentoring under brilliant people, great teachers and lived outside of the western world for years. Living between Costa Rica, Bali, Germany, Portugal and Sri Lanka allowed me to study and really live the philosophies of yoga and to immerse into other techniques like Yoga Therapy, Meditation or Anatomy.

As we all are, I am still growing, changing. That will always be a constant. I have cultivated so much appreciation for this wonderful wild thing that we call life. And my heart has never felt so calm & joyful.

That´s what I would like to share with you! Let´s connect

 

With love
