family Yoga weekend
A CREATIVE family Yoga and more Retreat
Oct 25-27, 2019
Aug. 28-30, 2020
Just an hour outside Berlin!
Come join us for an all ages creative and inclusive experience. A weekend for the family to bond, play, stretch, laugh, try new things, rest, and let your creativity fly. A weekend for parents to let go of the organizing, cooking, and cleaning and instead enjoy lots of time with their children.
All classes will be taught in German and/or English depending on the spoken languages of the participants.
Over the weekend you can enjoy:
Family yoga and mindfulness meditation classes: Fun classes for all ages. Some stretching, some strengthening, some relaxing, some concentration and lots of laughing.
Yoga and mindfulness just for kids: These classes will be taught by two kids who have been teaching yoga classes over the past 5 years at the Annual Yoga Picnic and on our last family weekend. The classes are fun and playful. Kids respond very well to being taught by peers.
Yoga classes just for adults: These classes are for parents to take time out for themselves. As we all know, being a parents is bound to tie some knots in the body. These classes will be an opportunity to meet those knots and loosen them. They are open to complete beginners but will also offer challenge to those who are more familiar with yoga.
Music and theater workshops for the whole family: Through improv games and trust exercises, our creativity will be given a safe playground to explore in. These games offer a new way for people to connect with each other while having a great time.
Plenty of fresh air and nature: You’ll be surrounded by forests and fields. The Hof has a “bachspielpatz.” with funky tree house by the stream. The Kinderherberge is also home to donkeys, sheep, goats, bunnies, and a sweet cat.
Join in some or all classes. A wide diversity of activities for all the different tastes in the family.

At the age of 12, I got my first tape recorder and at 13 my first drum kit. Since then, my world has been rotating around the world of music. A lot of circumstances changed but my passion for music and the creation of it has never faded. I have played in crossover, pop, trad and Klesmer surf bands. I got stuck in my first job as a record seller for over a decade because I simply loved what I was doing. In my years in Ireland, I played in a lot of outstanding trad sessions and did a “Master of Arts in Community Music” at the University of Limerick. We came to Berlin in 2009. My job here at an international school in Mitte combines music teaching, rock band facilitating, and concert organizing. For my peace of mind, I play drums in a pretty loud punk rock band.
Iza and Niko Fanore:
