Her flexibility improved beyond her comprehension. Since then, she vigorously practices yoga on a daily basis, training in different styles yet with the main focus on Vinyasa power and flow and Yin yoga, as she feels that these styles provide the perfect balance between the creation of peace of mind and bodily focus. She is a certified Ryoga Academy 200-hour teacher.

      "Die Leichtigkeit der Ablaüfe und des Zusammenspiels hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Ausserdem waren die alle immer sehr gut gelaunt, haben viel gelacht und alle Dinge erschienen sehr leicht. Das essen war supertoll, ein im wahren Sinnen “Augenschmaus” und es schmeckte herausvoragend, war phantasievoll zusammengestellt und liebevoll angerichtet!"

      "Schön war auch das wir yoga Unterricht bekamen von 2 Lehrerinnen, Gertrud und Rose! Und Hula Hoop mit Gertrud machte sehr viel Spass! Besonders schön war für mich Meditation und Schweigen mit Rose, Atmen und Schwimmen am/im See und Tanzen am Meer! You are all 3 very gut teachers und sehr liebevolle!"

      "I arrived feeling frazzled, I was running on empty! The welcome I received made me instantly feel at home. The environment was relaxed, the yoga classes were pitched to suit all levels of experience. The accommodation was clean and well maintained. The food was superb with a wide variety throughout the week; every night, I exclaimed, "This has been the best food so far!" The passion and depth of knowledge that Sarah and Rose have for yoga is testament to their genuine appreciation for yogic philosophy. I leave with a softness in my body and in my mind - the tank is now full! I will return as soon as I can."

      "Yoga with Gertrud is like your favorite pair of pajamas, it's cozy and fits perfectly. The small group and homely environment will help surpass the first hurdles of each novice yogi. Gertrud's experience with a variety of yoga types and her drive to experiment will push the more experienced. However, it's more than yoga, it's a delicious vegan dessert, an open chat about all good things in life, a place to come back to."
