Breath, Intention and Movement = Transformation
Kundalini Yoga is often referred to as an ancient practice that involves a combination of physical postures, breath control, chanting, and meditation to awaken the dormant spiritual energy at the base of the spine, known as Kundalini. It is considered a comprehensive system for personal transformation and spiritual development.
Kundalini Yoga is known for its holistic approach to well-being, and it's believed to have an impact on the nervous system. Practices such as specific breathing techniques (pranayama), dynamic movements (asanas), and meditation are thought to influence the nervous system, promoting relaxation, balance, and heightened awareness.

Are you looking for a relaxing retreat? Join us for a transformative experience in the beautiful setting of Son Almendros in Mallorca. Our retreat will offer an array of enriching activities such as writing, cooking, and meditation.
During the retreat, we encourage the incorporation of mindfulness practices, personal reflection time, and moments of connection between participants. In this luxurious environment, these elements will provide an exceptional opportunity for rejuvenation and personal growth.
Mindfulness practices can help participants stay present in the moment and reduce stress levels. Personal reflection time promotes self-awareness and introspection, paving the way for deeper understanding.

Ultimately, a well-designed retreat with these components promises a unique and unforgettable experience that leaves participants feeling refreshed and revitalized.
Meet the hosts
Katrin Delorme is a certified kundalini, vinyasa, yin and naad yoga teacher. Based in Hamburg, Germany and Mallorca, Spain.
She experienced the profound impact of kundalini and sound yoga during some of life's most difficult moments. The loss of her beloved husband Laurent to a brain tumor in 2019 brought her to a place of immense challenge and heartache. In those moments of vulnerability and sorrow, Kundalini yoga became her rock, offering her with strength, solace, and a path to healing.
In addition to Kundalini yoga, she incorporates the use of gongs and other healing instruments into her sessions. These instruments create a harmonious symphony that resonates with your body, mind, and spirit, facilitating an even deeper level of healing. The vibrations from these instruments have the remarkable ability to unlock emotional blockages and promote a sense of balance and well-being.
Motivated by her own journey of growth and healing, she is on a mission to share this profound transformation with others. For women who are navigating the complexities of loss or divorce from a partner, she offers a unique approach that combines the wisdom of Kundalini yoga with the healing resonance of instruments.
Remember, you are not alone, and healing is within your reach.
