Yogic nomad since 2012, Imken works internationally as a yoga teacher and craniosacral therapist. Summers in Sweden, winters in India, with regular visits to London & Hamburg. Years of work as a fashion knit designer inspired a search for ways to de-stress, re-balance body & mind and to release lower back pain. Imken’s main interest lies in sharing her ongoing exploration of opening up, softening and finding ways to relax into an essentially healthy and happy self.

"Heavenly weekend "
The retreat is located in the most picturesque place by a lake in a forest in the middle of nowhere. The whole area is extremely still and peaceful. Early morning yoga meant seeing the mist blow across the lake in the most breathtaking way. The acroyoga itself was so much fun. We packed an incredible amount of stuff into such a short space of time and learned a huge amount. The whole community was extremely welcoming and I felt a whole lotta love all the way through!

J'ai particulièrement adoré la qualité de l'enseignement avec un professeur excellent, incroyable dans sa pédagogie, le meilleur que je n'ai jamais eu!!!! ainsi que sa compagne adorable qui traduisait en français quand je ne comprenais pas. Un grand bravo pour Alex et Celia!!! J'ai aimé le site et la gentillesse des participants. Mais je pense que des efforts pourraient être faits sur les installations (chambres et douches) et la variété de la nourriture.
Shambala Gatherings website
The energy is so, so clear, deeply heart centred and the intent with which Shambala Gatherings is held is so beautiful it has become a massively important part of Spiderflower’s work and life. We have found nothing like it elsewhere.
