After just 5 days you are going to feel vibrant, magnetic, nourished and relaxed - able to manifest anything you want in your life!

Testimonial from our last retreat

"The entire course was exceptionally well-organized and provided a deep, enriching experience. I especially want to highlight Isabel, who was my yoga instructor, organizer, founder of Monkey Mind Retreats and an incredible support throughout the course. Isabel's teaching style is not only professional and well-structured but also inspiring and warm. She has a unique ability to convey complex concepts in a simple and understandable manner, and her passion for yoga is evident in every class. Her ability to cater to the individual needs of each participant made the training particularly valuable for me.
Under Isabel's guidance, I not only expanded my knowledge and skills in yoga but also found a deeper connection to my own practice. She created a wonderful balance between theory and practice, which helped me reach my full potential."

The Body holds the key, bathe in your aliveness 


During five days, you’ll be invited to carefully selected practices, to feel fresh, vibrant, and awake in your body, soul and mind.

Through yoga, you'll connect with your body and mind. We will guide you through poses and breathing techniques to increase your flexibility and strength, both physically and mentally. 

Feel the vibrant energy within you through our dynamic somatic practices. From invigorating movement sessions to calming breathwork, we offer a variety of activities that help you reconnect with your body and harness your inner vitality.  These practices are designed to release tension, enhance well-being, and bring a smile to your face (at least at some point :P).

Reconnecting with your inner child has never been so easy! Our sessions are designed to help you uncover and heal past traumas, fostering self-love and acceptance. Through creative and playful activities, you'll rediscover the joy, creativity, and love within you. Embrace the whimsy and wonder of your inner child as you learn to live more freely and joyfully in the present.


It's all about feeling alive and enjoying the journey!

There will be time to wander around, enjoy dips in the water, eat delicious local foods, get a massage, journal, or melt into the joys of doing the grand nothing.
