We are still very touched, inspired and enchanted by this wonderful time with you! These three days together, during which we were creating, singing, breathing, laughing, crying, feasting, listening, swimming, cycling, story telling, stretching, strengthening, dreaming, being lazy … – in short: we became a wonderful community!
All this is fulfilling us with deep gratitude!
We would like to thank you and our great team of helpers and facilitators. In a bit of time we will think about how, where and when we continue with this beautiful journey and will let you know about it!
With our debut for the Anahata Festival, we want to create a new space in which we can develop and try out new, more peaceful, more sustainable ideas in these crazy times. We want to explore beauty, creativity and the inner and outer universe. We want to live and celebrate community.
Last but not least: We want to share our joy and enthusiasm for Anahata Yoga with you.
With the retreat center Haus Birnbaum we have found an ideal place for this – especially in Corona times. Have a look at our program further down, where everything is possible, nothing is mandatory!
The Anahata Festival will be a tiny festival with around 20-30 participants. We have the whole location to ourselves, with a large garden, large communal kitchen, 3 yoga / workshop rooms. Lakes and forests are within walking distance.
We will all stay in 2-bed and multi-bed rooms; if necessary, we can still allow mattresses. The catering (big breakfast & dinner) is organic, vegetarian / vegan and prepared with love by us!
We look forward to your arrival by public transport if possible and you are cordially invited to explore the wonderful cycle path along the Havel with us!
The program will consist of a mixture of German and English. This way, we integrate also international facilitator and participants. We are happy to integrate both languages where necessary!
Regardless of whether you are a yoga beginner or a yoga pro – all are welcome! 🙂
(for more program details see further down, subject to modification)
Then let us know by 30.6. latest! We’ve still got some open spots for your ideas, thoughts and concepts and are eager to learn from you! Diversity and creativity are welcome!
You enjoy playing music at the camp fire? Then bring your guitar, your Cahon or your double bass along!
On Saturday evening we will all be part of a dream cocoa ceremony, being the highlight of the festival! Everyone is invited to show themselves in their most beautiful, dreamlike, sensual, magical, poetic version of themselves!
That’s why we are happy if you bring along your most legendary festival clothes, decorate your head with feathers or a crown, make your face glow even more with glitter and color and thus present your most beautiful dream of yourself in all its glory!
You set the limits to your creativity and ideas! 🙂
The festival takes place in and around Haus Birnbaum (Götzer Berge) in the middle of forests and lakes in Havelland.
The newly renovated and cosy seminar house is exclusively available to us for this weekend, has a variety of single and multi-bed rooms, several yoga rooms and a beautiful garden!
We are guests on the edge of a small village. We are therefore kindly requested to pay respect to the neighbours’ sphere and therefore to keep music volumns at decent levels. We therefore will not play loud techno music, but there will be dance and music, of course! 🙂
A corona-compliant hygiene concept will of course be applied. To make this work, we also rely on your help and courtesy!
For your travel to the festival, we invite you to cycle with us from Potsdam Central Station along the Havel to Haus Birnbaum! You will experience a beautiful 35km journey in nature, along the water and beautiful sceneries.

Creating a safe and non judgemental space, I invite you to come as you are and allow yourself to be seen. Through guided body and mindfulness exercises, we bring the focus inside and explore our inner map with its various colors, emotions and sensations. The connected breath supports contact with your body and you will perceive it more intensely. New sensations and suppressed emotions can (and may) come to the surface and dissolve. Held energy starts moving and may be expressed. Regardless of whether by sounding, moving, crying or laughing – everything is welcome. When blockages are released, the energy can flow more freely and becomes available to you. A feeling of liveliness, connection and more space within you can spread and old thought and holding patterns may dissolve.
Sangeet lives and works in Berlin in the field of body, trauma and breathwork as a naturopath and workshop leader and passionately opens up spaces for growth and embodiment. More information is available at: www.embodiedbeing.de
(Saturday afternoon, approx. 2h)
You will be guided into stillness through a gentle and accessible meditation, before floating on the powerful soundwaves of high-quality Gongs, which can feel like a sonic massage. Participants report deep relaxation, cosmic inner journeys and increased creativity and wellbeing.
Ciara of Spectral Solas is a 600-hour certified Meditation teacher and Gongstress who completed Gong Master training with Don Conreaux, Aidan McIntyre & Sheila Whittaker. The self-healing she found through Meditation and sacred instruments inspires her to gratefully share these transformative practices with others.
(Saturday evening, approx. 2 hours)
It is an honor to weave musical magic into Saturday evening’s ceremony, a celebration of your infinity. Following the cacao ritual, we will journey through a 5Rhythms dance to an eclectic wave of beats where you will be invited to follow your body into its dance, encouraged to release any concepts of pretty or ugly, connect to yourself and others and cherish the raw, sacredness of being human.
Certified in 5Rhythms®, Reiki, Emotional Bodywork and Integrative Counseling, I bring along my companions – my raw attitude and vulnerability – as I provide electric, creative and safe environments to investigate the connection to the self and to relationships, release blocks from the past and expand into infinite potential. I offer personal sessions, teach 5Rhythms classes to explore different aspects of the self and facilitate select workshops.

Sacred raw cacao is an ancient plant medicine from Central and South America already used in ceremonies by the Aztecs, Maya and Toltecs more than 3000 years ago. In comparison to chocolate, raw cacao still contains temperature-sensitive active substances that have a subtle but powerful effect on the body and mind. Sacred raw caccao opens the heart and bring you to an energized flow and relaxed state, which is perfect for meditation, danicn and to connect to your inner self.
Aouefa fell in love with raw cacao about six year ago. Since then, she has been experimenting with this plant medicine, researching on its history, chemistry and spiritual aspects. She practices traditional psychology as well as more alternative approaches, including active and passive meditations, yoga, tantra, breathwork, (neo-)shamanism.
