Newsletter – Christmas 2014

Join us for a quick flashback of 2014 and see what’s in store for 2015: more Bikram Yoga, surfing, relaxing, sun, beach, new friends etc more to come! Don’t miss out and treat yourself to a yoga holiday of a lifetime!

Hello to all our fellow Bikram & Hot Yoga lovers around the world!

It’s that time again and another year draws close to its end & we like to share with you a brief review of all the fantastic retreat moments of 2014 while getting all giddy about what’s in store for 2015!

First of all – you may have noticed already that Christmas has come early for us and we just launched our website with a slight face-lift. You’ll still find all the information around our retreats, FAQs, galleries of past retreats and regular blog posts in the same place- just a little bit prettier and quicker. Go & check it out!

casa om outside.jpgAt the time of writing this – our final retreat of 2014, which is our first Christmas retreat, in Mexico is about to kick off with guests from various countries celebrating the festive holidays in sunny Puerto Morelos. Speaking of which – the retreat is held at the wonderful Casa Om and is already our 2nd retreat at this location – check out pictures from the June retreat here – and because we love it so much…we have already secured the place for 2 more retreats next year: 17 – 23 May 2015 & 7 – 13 June 2015.

We’re also delighted that the gorgeous Gianna Purcell and Courtney Mace who are both previous Yoga Asana Champions have joined our teaching team for these! But – as this lovely place is limited in space – do hurry and secure your spot asap!

We also ran our first Bikram Yoga & Surf Retreat in January this year on our beloved Bocas Del Toro islands in Panama! Yoga and surfing is a fantastic combination, each activity complementing the other and curing each other’s aches hehehe 😉 We even made a short video for you to watch!

Surf’s up again next February with perfect surfing conditions and we’re excited to have Yoga Asana Champion Kathy Durham on-board as Bikram Yoga Teacher! Again, the Tierra Verde, ‘our’ hotel for the week which we’ll have to our sole use on the small car-free island of Carenero only offers limited spots – and we only have a few left now – so go & treat yourself to the perfect start of the year with a Yoga & Surf Holiday in beautiful Bocas!

Luxury Bali Retreat PoolAnother familiar but always a winning location is the Absolute Sanctuary on Koh Samui and due to popular demand we’re going back there again for an Easter Retreat in April! We already are pretty much sold out due to the holidays so hurry if you’re in for a week at one of Thailand’s premium wellness & detox centre with the brilliant John Nelson as BY teacher.

Also – after our double-whammy series of 2  consecutive retreat weeks in Bali in August – we just had to go back as everyone just loved the location so much. Bali has so much to offer – not only have we partnered with the wonderful Jiwa Bikram Yoga studio and their fantastic facilities but there are temples, beaches, night markets, and not to forget the food! So check out the details & book yourself in next May!

And finally – we will run our first retreat in Europe in 2015 – in the idyllic Andalusian Mountains of Spain. We’ll be going there in July – i.e. the peak of the European summer which should guarantee for top temperatures to relax by the pool. Full details will be available soon – in the meantime, just drop us an email to find out more on

So this is it – another year full of fantastic memories, new experiences and friendships – with lots more to come!!! We would like to thank all of our retreat guests of which so many have been returning for their 2nd, 3rd holiday with us now. We feel very blessed and cannot wait for 2015’s retreat goodness to come!

We wish you a lovely time with your loved ones over the holidays and hope to see you soon at one (or two or three…) of our retreats next year!!!

And as a little present from us – this delicious vegan apple pie recipe! Enjoy!

Christiane & Sandra & the rest of the HBR team
