THURSDAY 20 – MONDAY 24 OCTOBER
Arrival between 4 – 6pm
Departure between 10 – 12pm
Contemporary meaningful well-being retreats for the nowadays woman. An ode to joy, movement, nourishment, nature, togetherness and matters of the creative mind.
THE SHE SHE PHILOSOPHY
she she retreats are all about holistic meaningful well-being experiences following our philosophy since 2015:
she who loves movement
she who seeks adventure
she who values peace
With the darker winter season ahead, autumn is a beautiful time to go inward: to pause, reflect and replenish. Both your body and mind will agree. As we leave the hustle and bustle of summer behind, we dive into a safe and nurturing environment that offers space for moments of joy, truth and inspiration.
At she she we take a contemporary approach to well-being, without being rigid. Our retreats don’t follow a strict schedule or enforced detoxing. Instead we create an open-minded place to heal and feel safe, where you can really let your hair down and indulge in a meaningful retreat experience alongside like-minded women.
In short, feeling and moving freely – enjoying the things in life that truly matter!
MOVEMENT AND MIND
The movement and mind program for ODE TO JOY is created and led by Steph Cusack and Mitali Chatterjee. Expect to be guided through an array of practices in Kundalini, Vinyasa, Yin and Yoga Nidra, as well as beautiful rituals, ceremonies and contemporary collective mantra singing. Together they are quite the magical duo, and the cosy inward surroundings of Das Rosso will make these experiences unforgettable.
We believe in the connection between nature, body and consciousness. Through the different modalities their teachings are based on, they encourage you to step into self-knowledge and confidence, bonding with physical wisdom and innate creativity.
Steph and Mitali's warm and sincere guidance is the perfect framework for you to embark on a journey towards wholeness and a deeper sense of self-awareness. There is no right or wrong and none of the sessions require previous experience in yoga or signing; everything happens at your pace and tone.
Das ROSSO is an off the beaten path, old red farmhouse tucked in the hills of Allgäu, Germany.
There are three cozy apartments that have been renovated with great attention to detail. Cozy yet bright, contemporary yet rustic. Imagine a large green garden overlooking the hills offering a view of undiscovered forests and the Alps. Sun beds and hammocks allow you to fully unwind and embrace a slower pace of living.
Everything is organic, in balance and exudes the pleasant smell of natural materials. Comfortable and big double box spring beds (its true, we tested them!), high ceilings, a shower as well as bathtub, hand-picked country furniture, fluffy towels, a daybed and lots of light. Each apartment also has a south-facing balcony to enjoy the sunset.
On the ground floor there is large living room for us to gather and cook, chat and just unwind. It has a fireplace, comfy sofas and library to ponder or create. This space leads to the yoga studio, fully equipped with mats, bolsters and blanket, so you do not have to bring anything. There’s a sauna with the scent of local pine trees and (for the brave-hearts!) a fresh natural pond to cool down.

Through dynamic Kundalini, intuitive motion and slow yin, we have created an array of movement practices helping you to reconnect body and breath through rhythmic, mindful movement. With great passion and dedication, our teachers hold a welcome space for our guests to tune in, to explore, to heal and to be open trying (and feeling!) new things.
Furthermore, expect to deep dive into our multi-sensory experiences such as collective singing, reconnecting with nature via Shinrin-Yoku (forest-bathing), exploring your creativity side with an art workshop, a cooking class and scent scapes with essential oils. You will make your own ODE TO JOY blend based on local wood scents.
