Yoga & Surf in San Sebastian

7 days/ 6 nights retreat
September 28th to October 4th
Retreat will be held in German or English (depending on the participants)

Organized by: Silke Bilke

SIlke Bilke is a German yoga teacher based in San Sebastian. With a focus on breathing and body awareness she teaches a mixture of styles that lead from arriving on the mat, activating and warming up the body towards a state of concentration, tranquility and peace in the present moment. Her intention is to guide you on a journey that starts on the mat and continues beyond that in your day to day life. Because Yoga isn’t just postures, it’s a path to realize, that you are already perfect the way you are.

She has been trained in Germany and India, but considers herself a curious lifetime student, with the intention to keep an open heart and mind
