´I have known Anke for several years since originally teaching at our Yoga and Meditation Centre in Bali. She is a wise soul, caring and communicates on a level of equality. She is a good listener, so she can ascertain what students need and shares her extensive knowledge in a magical way that creates yogic passion within the seekers.´

´I’ve recently come back from my first shine yoga retreat and it beyond exceeded my expectations!! I’m not a yogi and was a little apprehensive about my level but Anke and Nancy were amazing at adapting the sessions for all experiences and helping wherever possible. Everything was at a really high standard, and the food was excellent! I’m already excited about booking my next retreat with them. Thanks again ladies, and for all your help and advice on life! Xx ´

´I just spent an amazing week in Ibiza doing a shine yoga retreat with Anke and Nancy. I loved every bit of it! The teachers, the yoga classes themselves, the food, the finca, … every detail. The girls put so much love into their program and every other bit. Will defo join again with the next yoga retreat. It was such good fun but one of my most fav highlight besides the yoga classes was the sacred cacao ceremony followed by the ecstatic 5 elements dance´

´It is with immense joy that I recommend SHINE Yoga Detox retreat in Ibiza. Anke and Nancy were exceptional light instructors and took us on a wonderful journey of discovery. The retreat in a wonderful finca was expertly designed with plenty of free time to rest or enjoy the many wonderful beaches. Having two expert teachers for a small group gave us unprecedented individual attention during the class. The food was plentiful and fabulous. I also immensely enjoyed the company of the other participants who came from allover World. I so proud to inform you that I stopped chocolate and thank my teachers for this beautiful week share together. Love shine Anke Love light Nancy Love you beautiful yoginis.´

´I don’t consider myself a yogi and I still have a long way to go to live my life mindfully but I definitely always aim to be happier and healthier version of myself!
My week long experience with the group and teachers was exactly what I signed up for – mindful, inspirational and transformative! Your positive energy, words of wisdom and sincere care will be held close to my heart for a very long time!
Oh, and of course, I came back stronger (physically and mentally!)
I will make sure, I’ll see Ankie and Nancy again! :)´

´Anke is a beautiful spirit and the yoga retreat that she and Nancy led was wonderfully refreshing. I participated in classes taught by both of them and I cannot recommend them both highly enough. Ankie has a very joyful energy and she made sure that her lessons  were filled with light and love.

I can safely say that I didn’t just gain a new guru, I gained a friend. If you are at all considering this retreat, don’t think about it any longer and just book it! It is by far the best thing I have done this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you!´
