Barcelona Yoga & Pole camp was an amazing experience. Not only was it a significant step for my Pole Dancing journey, but also for my personal journey. The Yoga classes are the best way to start those Pole Dancing days, and Barcelona is a wonderful city! This camp is the perfect place to deepen your Pole Dancing practice, to connect or reconnect to yourself and your feminine energy, surrounded by caring and inspiring women.
I experienced the full week Pole & Yoga retreat for 2 years running in 2016 and 2017. It was a fantastic experience where I made friends (whom I am still in touch with) and had tons of fun! The most surprising part of the experience is how much I learnt about me... the week gave me so much in self-understanding, self-development and self-acceptance that it truly did allow me to reflect and become a better part of myself. Vee-Niz and Raphaella are an incredible team
I love how this camp is so much more than only pole. It brings together pole, yoga, people from different backgrounds and loads of positive energy. You leave with a more positive image of yourself, sore muscles and great memories. The second time I went, I brought along my parents (who joined the yoga session) and my brother. I plan to return my third time next year - this time with my best friend - and am looking forward to all the creative exercises, fun and people!
I found this yoga and pole dance retreat very nice. The teachers were so good and I will a lot of inspiration and motivation with me home. Thank you.
It was my first yoga and pole camp and for sure not the last one. Amazing people, great experience. But very hot. See you next year
The Barcelona Pole & Yoga Retreat was a perfect balance of a mind and body. Pole classes had top-notch instruction that inspired everybody to push themselves to new limits. The teachers knew how to motivate even the most tired students to try something new. They differentiated their classes for all levels in an exceptional way while maintaining a safe environment. Before and after pole classes, Raphaella rescued our sore muscles and stressed minds with her nurturing approach yoga. A much needed stretch and meditation! Additionally, activities to see Barcelona were mixed into the schedule and provided downtime (and Sangria). Teachers always made themselves available and were approachable throughout the retreat. It went beyond my expectations. I will forever be appreciative for my time spent at the retreat.
Raphaella thank you so much for your yoga classes during the Barcelona pole retreat. They were so restorative I don't know how I would have survived such an intense week of training without them. Everyday I would wake up for the yoga classes. I would stumble into class feeling as if I could barely move and somehow by the end of the class due to your awesome partner stretches and breathing exercises, among other things, I would feel renewed and ready for another day of training. If it wasn't for yoga during the week, I think my body would have just broken into a million pieces. Also one the best moments was yoga in the park. So relaxing! Once again thank you so much, can't wait for next year!
The retreat was awesome! Great yoga with a great teacher! Shimmy was perfect as guest-trainer and the Pole Teachers were easygoing and fun! The activities were very good, the boat trip in particular. And extra plus for the hostel to be so close to the studio!
I participated in the Pole dance and Yoga retreat in Barcelona this summer (2012). It was the perfect combination of a cool and a relaxing workout for your body and soul together with hard working muscle classes. Since pole dance requires a lot of flexibility it was great to prepare the body for that with a yoga session before the pole class. Some sessions were held out in the park which was lovely.
