About the event

Yoga retreat in Sardinia Sat, 29.8.20 – Sat, 5.9.20 

With Christina Waltner and Bettina Walter 

This retreat is not a beginner's retreat and is therefore suitable for people who already have yoga experience.

The Eco Retreat is embedded in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Europe and offers all the comfort and space you could wish for in a quiet retreat. The tranquility and untouched nature enhance the quality of daily yoga practice. 

The resort is located near the picturesque village of Luogosanto, a "sacred" and authentic place where time almost stands still. Luogosanto is the cultural center of Gallura in north-eastern Sardinia and is surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. Away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, you can feel the very special energy of the country. The beach can be reached in 20 minutes by rental car.

Between activities, one can regenerate in quiet and peaceful spaces and in nature, or relax by the turquoise pool. Let yourself be touched by the warm sunlight and marvel at the endless stars in the night sky.

  The retreat starts with dinner on August 28, 2020 at 8 p.m. (check-in from 3 p.m.) and ends with breakfast on September 5, 2020.

Christine Waltner

Training manager and owner of the studio Planet Yoga«I originally came to yoga through my career as a professional dancer and trained as a yoga teacher in Los Angeles at Yoga West over 20 years ago. In 2007 I completed the "Advanced Teacher Training" with Glenn Ceresoli. In 2010 I was certified as a Yin Yoga teacher by Paul Grilley. Every year I conduct a 200-hour yoga teacher training course at Planet Yoga, certified by "Yoga Alliance", and have already been able to accompany over 200 students on their way to becoming a professional yoga teacher.» 

Bettina Walter Yoga teacher and trainer at Planet Yoga

«I discovered yoga during my dance career in the late 90s. The enthusiasm to work with and for the body has always fascinated me, as a professional dancer, choreographer and later also as a yoga teacher and Thai massage therapist. On my journey through Asia I did the 200 Hrs Teacher Training with Stephen Thomas, Adnan Tahirovic and Rachal Tsai. I took a 400-hour Thai massage course with Kam Thye Chow and have been doing this job with enthusiasm ever since.»
