Frauen Kreis

Retreat from everyday life setting out on an adventure into the core of your existence. Dive into a deep feeling of being alive. Become aware of what is there right now. Invite life to flow through you, to breathe you and express its creative power.


Connect with other people, community and nature to feel whole and complete. Tune into a life of harmony and balance. Step towards your true inner blissful being.

We don’t promise heaven, but we promise a heavenly fun journey in a protected and inspiring setup.


About the practice

We move and sense into our body to calm the mind. Through embodiment we get more aware of the present moment. We are also going to explore the movement of our breath, thoughts and emotions. When we leave the box and our limiting beliefs, judgements and expectations, when we stop wanting, trying and seeking, the inherent creative self can emerge and the magic flows.

Connecting and moving mindfully with another person takes the adventure even further! Our subjective perspective gets attuned with the reality around us. Playfully we explore communicating through touch, sharing balance, moving together and making our interactions a dance.

It is not necessary to have previous experience with any of the practices or to have physical prerequisites. Two legs, two arms and a portion of curiosity and openness is all you need.


You can come on your own or with your partner or a friend.

We don’t promise heaven, but we promise a heavenly fun journey

Mito is a movement junkie, who loves to geek out on tricks, moves, progression, biomechanics, health and spirituality. But much of the important stuff in life doesn’t just happen in the mind, so more impor-tantly he loves to play, explore, co-create and dive into a dance of movement. Since 2014 it is also part of his passion to share his insights and experience in Acroyoga, embodiment and Thai-Yoga-Massage.

Vero met Mito at a festival. They instantly shared their passion for movement and self development. Anyone can move and it is not always about the outer shape, but the inner perception of beauty. “Something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world”. Together they continue exploring the effect of inner attitude on their outer relations.

Gravito is a truly magical spot with many acres of land surrounded by forests. It is a non profit organisation working for the develop-ment of consciousness and the protection of the natural heritage. The aim is to restore the ecosystem by using permaculture principles, water retention systems and an ecological approach.


There are domes and tipis for accommodation on individual terraces, a large shaded outdoor platform and a big geodesic dome for practice. Homegrown and locally sourced organic ingredients are used to create inventive and nutritious vegetarian cuisine.


In the area you can find great river waterfall swimming spots, many walking trails and it is at walking distance from a river beach with restaurants and local cafes.
