A holistic yoga weekend in a community-run farm and performance art center in Uckermark, Germany.

06. - 08. October 2023

Check-in Friday at 5pm
Check-out Sunday at 2pm


Take a weekend for yourself to find balance in body and mind. Alex and Sarah will take you on a journey balancing Yang (Pingala, Sun) & Yin (Ida, Moon) energies , to guide you back to your natural state of oneness - so you can live your life in balance and aligned with your truth.

Yoga in itself (Hatha means literally Sun & Moon) is a practice that encourages synchronization with the celestial cycles that help the body and mind into alignment with the Sun, the Moon and everything beyond! 

One core belief of Yoga is that everything we see in nature we can also find inside of us. We can find the qualities of the Sun, its fierceness, its strength, its activity within us just as much as the qualities of the moon, its softness, its tenderness, its cyclicity. Very often, through our everyday life and our habits we shift away from our natural state of balance. Yet, as we become more aware of our tendencies, we can re-invite and balance the two polarities to step back into oneness, our true potential and greater spirit.

About the retreat home

The renovated farm and former Gutshof Ponderosa is today a community-run art centre and a place for creation and connection. It is located in the German countryside Uckermark just an hour by train from Berlin, close to Poland. Ponderosa offers lots of space to be creative, to connect back with nature and to find the beauty in the gifts of life.

The surroundings are perfect for long walks through the Lower Oder Valley National Park or refreshing dips in the nearby river.

"Yoga is balancing the emotions and the intellect." - Vishwaguruji

About the team

The retreat is led and guided by Alex & Sarah from Yoga on the Move. The two will guide you step by step into the practices independently of your level of experience.


Alex is a licensed medical doctor and Yoga teacher working and living in Berlin. He teaches yoga in a non-rigid and modern form based on a scientific understanding of movement and of the body. Having received his medical license, Alex uses his profound anatomical and physiological knowledge to adapt his guidance to the unique physiognomy of each of his students, herewith creating a safe environment for all to freely express their body wisdom through movement.


Sarah is a certified yoga teacher, movement pedagogue and professional dancer. She holds space for yoga, dance & music in several studios & spaces in Berlin. In her presence you will find an ecstatic and conscious yoga practice. You will practice flowing with the breath and connecting with your deepest self (Atman) through the practice of yoga. Letting go of old and gaining new energy. Meditation and mantra chanting will also find their place. Creative flows await you, which may also include a touch of dance. She invites you onto a holistic, spiritual path.


Alex & Sarah are more than happy to welcome you!
