A few words about her yoga journey. She started practicing yoga in 2007 and after trying many different styles, classes, and studios around the globe, she found her heart and home in Forrest Yoga. Having trained 200 hours with Ana, the creator of Forrest Yoga, and studied anatomy with Ellen Heed in Hong Kong, she Is a certified Forrest Yoga Teacher since the year 2013. She is always keen to continue learning. In 2016, she finished a bodywork training with Forrest Yoga guardian teachers Jambo Truong and Brian Campbell, whose techniques and wisdom gently flow into her teachings ever since.

"Lisbon's hidden gem!"
After a challenging year I treated myself with a stay at Hilke's unique yoga retreat in Lisbon and I could not have wished for anything more healing!
From the moment I walked into her beautiful and cozy apartment with a stunning and instantly calming view, Hilke made me feel so welcome and at home. She is such a pure, warm hearted, caring, lovely, inspiring and funny human being and it felt great just to be in her presence.
I could really feel her energy which created a warm and loving bubble that even made me feel a bit homesick after I left Lisbon!
Since teaching comes naturally to her, Hilke was able to introduce me into the world of Forrest Yoga in a very respectful and comfortable way. She constantly kept a close look at my capabilities and needs which made every practice challenging but enlightening at the same time. Every day I felt energetic, relaxed and more in touch with myself afterwards.
And to top things of, Hilke made the most nutritious, healthy and yummy breakfast - with the best (bakkies) coffee and great talks - that gave me enough fuel to explore the beautiful streets of Lisbon for the rest of the day.
I feel so much gratitude for the day's I've spent with Hilke in her unique yoga retreat. It gave me exactly the uplifting energy I needed so desperately, and I wish for everyone to experience the same someday!

"Awesome Couples Yoga Experience in Lisbon"
Hilke is a positive and passionate person who has great joy in sharing her yoga knowledge in a caring, comfortable setting. She is an excellent instructor who gave individualized instruction to deepen the yoga experience for both of us. And, afterward, the breakfasts she made were also individualized, delicious and quite generous. We almost didn’t need to eat lunch! And finally her flat was quite comfortable and in a wonderful and very convenient section of Lisbon in Graça and close to Alfama. All in all we both felt we had a great experience with Yoga Retreat Lisbon and would recommend it highly to others.

"A wonderful, unique yoga experience in the heart of Lisbon!"
We felt very welcomed from the first minute we spent with Hilke! She is a charming person, always with a smile in her face and an amazing sense for the wishes from her guests! The yoga lessons were tailored to our needs and expectations, and we got highly inspired by forrest yoga (which was new to us). After the lessons Hilke prepared and served an incredible delicious brunch - again customised. The flat is renovated and stilish, but kept it's portuguese charm. It is well located for sightseeing and there are a couple of nice cafés within walking distance. A truly excellent experience - and we don't hesitate to recommend it!
