Who we are
The expression “Monkey Mind’’ is a concept in Buddhist teachings. Considering that humans have around fifty thousand separate thoughts each day, many of them on the same topic.
Imagine that each thought is a branch, and you, or at least the attention of your conscious mind, is indeed a monkey, swinging from thought-branch to thought-branch all day long.
This might sound like it might be fun, but in our troubled human way the thoughts that are often in our minds are concerned with the fears and pressures of life: What will happen if I lose my job? What if I don’t have enough money when I retire?
The interesting thing is - We all have the mind of a monkey…but we can train it!
We from Monkey Mind Retreats envision a world where we will be able to learn giving our attention to one thing at a time, not spending our life rushing from one appointment to another and focus on what we are actually currently doing instead of what we are yet to do.
We believe in a world of loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity in a working environment. We want to create space to work with each other and not against each other.

"When I decided to become a yoga teacher, I never expected the journey it would take me on. Through yoga, I've learned to love and accept myself more. And I want to share that with others, especially in these times that can be so discouraging.
Teaching has opened up a whole new level of learning for me. My students have taught me so much over the years, and it's an endless process of learning as I teach. I'm always striving to be the best student as well as teacher.
My mission is for everyone to access yoga, meditation and mindfulness in their everyday lives; whether through retreats or workshops worldwide. It's been so rewarding to see how passionate people get and it just shows that if you love what you do, the possibilities are endless!"
