About INNER RENAISSANCE
Our July retreat INNER RENAISSANCE will be all about following your intuitive wisdom and finding a new pathway on your personal journey to wellbeing.
welcome from 16 hrs
goodbyes at 12 hrs
This retreat will allow you to effortlessly flow back into a natural relaxed state. Awaken your essence and listen to your higher self again.
Reunite with the expert within – as she can provide you with exactly what you need to be at your best. Find answers to questions we already have within. Surrender to that part of yourself and let it be a catalyst for deep nourishment, knowledge and rejuvenation.
The retreat will be hosted by Birjiwan and Steph and the morning classes will be taught by Pia Gärtner.
Pia is a dedicated yogi, teacher and lover of different styles of working with the mind and consciousness. She draws her inspiration from the beauty and mystery of life itself. In her teaching, she wants to guide others into deep experiences of their own magic and knowing. Practices that take our retreat guests out of the ordinary, while being accessible for everyone and everybody.
In our daily sessions, you will be guided into ancient practices from Tantric Hatha Yoga, curated to recharge all the different dimensions of your being. The asana practice will be accompanied by mindfulness meditations to quiet the thinking mind.
Additionally, the practice of Yoga Nidra at the end of every session will reset and rejuvenate your whole being. To complement the rather static practices, easy flow sequences and intuitive and conscious movement will energise your body and get stagnant energy flowing.
Movement, Meditation & Rituals
The purpose of Hatha Yoga is to use the body as a tool to perceive enhanced states of consciousness and a sense of unity with the universe. Often described as the Yoga of Ha (the sun) and Tha (the moon), the core principle of this practice is polarity: working with Lunar and Solar energy will generate power in your body and mind. Similar to Yin Yoga, the postures are held longer, with a mental focus on the different energy centres.
Dare to dream: The Yoga of sleep is a highly restorative practice. As you deeply relax your physical body and mind, your brain waves change from waking consciousness to a dreamlike state while remaining fully aware. You can use this state as a source of inspiration.
Writing and Reflections
For she who is at a crossroad to making aligned decisions: Throughout the retreat, you will be invited to self-reflect and imagine your desired future with the help of meditations and journaling prompts, while authentically meeting others and nourishing yourself in the supportive energy of the group.
Our enchanting retreat house is a 13th Century Monastery set high up in the hillside of the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana range of Mallorca.
This unique family owned home is located near the artistic village of Deià where one can really feel the creative soul of the island. This area has been an inspiration to many painters, poets and musicians.
The property enjoys breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea, while surrounded by millennial olive groves. Spend some alone time in a quiet nook or hang out with the group in the communal spaces like the cosy living room or the outdoor lounge with infinity pool.
Wander through sweet-scented citrus trees, breathe in the fresh mountain air and watch the sun dip beyond the ocean's horizon.
We promise the moment you set foot on these blessed grounds, it will steal your heart.
The preparations of food and drinks will be by Berlin based chef Zsuzsanna Toth. Returning for the 3rd time, you can tell (and taste!) that she knows her way around the monastery kitchen, where to pick fresh rosemary and how to bake the fluffiest Ensaïmada.
With a creative background, this self taught chef like to look at “the bigger picture”. The same applies to her food today: thoughtful but not complicated, always considering the context in which a meal is served, digested and shared.
Expect market-fresh island ingredients combined with some crucial elements from her Austro-Hungarian background, such as ferments, pickles and of course baked goods.
Our menu is vegetarian and served in family style so you can pick and choose to your liking.

We are what we eat is a common phrase. But equally the reverse is the case. We eat what we are. As a person in the very moment of shaping and making food, the mindset we have, the conversations we share at the table.
Our artistic baking session will include the creation of emotional shapes into edible dough. The idea is to communicate your present into something tangible whilst being conscious about its purpose; nourishing yourself and the environment it will be consumed.
Followed by a playful collective still life creation in a picnic setting in the olive groves, you will gain new awareness for exploring yourself through multiple forms.
Inner renaissance in all its tasteful shapes!
Besides the most memorable experiences, delicious food and a mesmerising location – you may expect to create new friendships, have empowering conversations and share emotions of mostly joy!
We will take you to one of our favourite wild beaches and guide you in an invigorating mountain-women ritual on the last night.
And even though we are about sisterhood you will still find plenty of quiet time for self-reflection and to unwind by yourself.
Let go of any expectations, dive in and get wonderfully lost (or perhaps found!) in wild Mallorca with us.
We can’t wait!
I am not fully healed,
I am not fully wise,
I am still on my way.
What matters is that
I am moving forward.

How to get there
Travel to and from the monastery is not included in the retreat price. We’re located at a 40 min drive from PMI airport along the Ma-10 road between Valldemossa and Deià. We will share the exact location once you have signed up.
With our retreat location being quite remote, we highly recommend getting a rental car. They are affordable and you will have the freedom to drive out to town or the beach during free time periods. Note the road to the house is narrow, steep and uneven, so consider a small but higher car with full insurance.
A taxi costs about 50-60 EUR per ride.
We will also support in connecting guests and help organising shared transportation.
