Ashtanga Intensive (+Yoga Sutra) Retreat July ’23

Experience the magic of daily practice with Grischa, the founder of Ashtanga Yoga Berlin in 2004.

The foundation of this retreat is the daily Ashtanga Mysore Style, pranayama, and evening meditation practice.

a) Ashtanga Intensive

Spend the whole day with Yoga and take your practice to the next level: advanced alignment principles,
Yoga philosophy, teaching principles and the proper pronunciation of the Sanskrit language.

In this intensive we will discuss the most important yogic text, Patanjalis famous Yoga Sutra. This changes everything that you know about Yoga and fundamentally transforms all aspects of your practice.

b) Ashtanga Holidays / Work Retreat
Alternatively you can take a great rest from the daily routine, get some work done or simple cycle to one of the phenomenal lakes nearby.

For practitioners

This retreat is open for all practitioners with prior Mysore Style experience. The deep understanding of breath, bandha and good alignment taught in this training will transform every single asana and your whole practice. You will understand the root causes of all major difficulties and injuries in Yoga practice and how to overcome them with ease.

For teachers

Learn all about the practice and teaching on asana,  pranayama, philosophy and meditation. You will learn how practitioners can be assisted in a safe and precise way. You will understand how I recognize and improve various alignment patterns from the beginner to the most advanced practitioner. Every morning you can try out the patterns for yourself, integrate it with your personal background and refine your teachings skills.

Only good education matters, not numbers of hours, months or years. That’s how we all have learnt teaching. I will not press you into a teacher template or judge your teaching skills. I will not sell fake security in form of totally meaningless certificates. Your values as a teacher is yourself, your open heart and your experience. You can’t buy being a Yoga teacher.

Ashtanga Retreat Eating Together

Breitenteicher Mühle

This seminar takes place at the beautiful seminar house “Breitenteicher Mühle” near Berlin. We have spent several weeks at this mill already and it is embedded in a mind-blowing setting surrounded by a little forest and lush fields inviting for walks. It’s truly a little paradise – we have seen all sorts of animals and rare birds here.


All rooms at Breitenteicher Mühle are beautifully designed and built with excellent natural materials, lot’s of wood and clay.
You can choose from different room types (single, double, triple). All rooms are fully equipped with linen, towels etc. Two rooms share one bathroom.
A special highlight is the Mongolian tent in the garden.
Please contact us if you run on a very low budget and would like to sleep in your own tent.


The seminar house offers three delicious mails per day. 100% organic, partly home grown – and simply amazing. All meals are made with love! The food is mostly vegan in addition with some dairy options. All cooks are really enthusiastic and really helpful with all sorts of special diet requests including raw food.

The food is truly a highlight at the Breitenteicher Mühle!!!
