Yoga Retreat in Israel with Melanie & Kat
A mindful yoga holiday to Israel
Join me and Melanie for a week of Yoga and travelling in Israel! A country full of contrast and surprises. The ‘Old New Land’ where the three great monotheistic religions Christianity, Judaism and Islam have their roots. A 7-day discovery of the Holy Land with Yoga, a Thai Yoga Massage workshop, the smells of the Middle East, sightseeing and cooking workshops.
What can you expect on this yoga holiday to Israel
In brief: Vibrancy, Yoga, beaches, affectionate people, 80 different nations, delicious food (humous & co), diversity of cultures and religions, markets, Thai Yoga Massage workshop, spirituality, houses of prayer, modern skylines, salt, old cultures, mountains, sun, letting go, swimming, massages, enjoying stillness, star gazing, inspiration and simplicity. Our journey will takes us from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea to the Massif of Massada & Qumran, back via Tel Aviv towards Haifa/Gita.
When you arrive at Tel Aviv airport, Melanie and Katrin will pick you up and we will take you to Jerusalem to our first house reserves just for us Yogis and Yoginis - quiet and outside of Jerusalem, so that we have space to practice and somewhere we can relax after our cultural visits and let all the new experiences resonate.
After our four days in and around Jerusalem, it’s time for relaxation and rejuvenation - away from the hustle and bustle of the city we will spend the last few days in the idyllic nature of the north of Israel, in Gita.
And after those three days in the north, our holiday sadly comes to an end - we will say good bye in Akko. In the morning of the last day you can take a train directly from Akko to Tel Aviv airport (Ben Gurion - 1.5h train journey). It’s time to go home.

Yoga Safari, Thai Massage workshop & hosting in Israel by Melanie and Kat
8x 1.5h Yoga sessions, the complete hosting and guide through the country, Thai Massage workshop and cooking lessons
Our aim with the Yoga: We will show you how to become even more aware of your body, to become more flexible and to realise, acknowledge and respect the needs of your body. You will learn to be more in the present moment, letting the thoughts become quieter. You will be able to reconnect with your inner Self again.
A small introduction to Thai Massage: We will learn a few very simple, but yet very effective and most of all delicious moves to stretch, mobilise and release energy blockages. This little exchange promises to be great fun and is the ultimate relaxation, whether on the giving or receiving end (everyone will get to enjoy both!).
Price per person - 380€
