Simply. Life. Changing. Hilke is the single most inspirational, devotional and transformational teacher I have ever experienced. My practice jumped light years in one week, and maybe more importantly my relationship with myself advanced light years as well. Hilke's home - and her ver presence is calming, detoxifying, purifying. I cannot say enough about this whole experience, and cannot recommend it highly enough.

I arrived tired and somewhat burnt out and from the moment Hilke greeted me I had such a relaxing and rejuvenating couple of days in Lisbon. I loved everything about my stay in this retreat; the personalised one on one yoga sessions, the homemade healthy delicious breakfast and the beautiful apartment in the lovely and genuine local area in the centre of Lisbon. Hilke was the most wonderful and attentative host. I could not have wished for a better experience and I left feeling rested and refreshed. I highly recommend Hilke and this retreat for anyone who is looking for an amazing yoga teacher in the beautiful city of Lisbon.

Hilke's place is the most welcoming, uniquely designed, beautifull apartment complementing the percise and personly tailored yoga class.
Yoga was one part of the whole package, body mind and soul treatment.
Hilke is amazingly jenuin, good hearted and lightfull person and I am greatfull for the time spent and hope to make it soon again.
Anat (IL) Fantastic experience with Hilke in amazing Lisbon! Her place is so relaxing with a breathtaking view.
Through Yoga Hilke helped me open my heart and be true to myself. It was a real and full of emotions experience. Will definitely recommend it to those who want to slow down a little in their life and seek for genuine happiness.
I am already looking forward to making another retreat with her :) Pierre (FR) At Hilke's place I discovered a new way to visit an unknow city and to explore what means “soul connection”. The apartment is very comfortable and Hilke made the experience highly cozy and healthy. I keep that memory in my heart with so much light and love. I hope that many other souls can be inspired by this magnificent experience. Junio (IT) Yoga Retreat Lisbon was a unique, special and beautiful experience.
From the very first moment I walked into Hilke’s beautiful apartment felt at home and never wanted to leave, her presence spreads a magic energy.
Our yoga session was great, breath exercises, stretches, standing, relaxation… a perfect morning start. Breakfast with amazing views in a wonderful location to start wandering the city around. Maria (ES) My friend and I had a fantastic yoga retreat with Hilke in her beautiful and cozy Lisbon apartment. We felt very welcomed and the hospitality and yoga sessions were great. I was suffering from pain in my left shoulder and my friend had knee problems. Hilke´s amazing one on one yoga sessions were tailored to our needs. She has a great yoga expertise. The classes were so beneficial for my yoga practice and well taught.
Hilke is wonderful and very kind. She made us the most delicious breakfast every morning. We had great conversations and she gave us amazing exploring tips for Lisbon. I highly recommend Yoga Retreat Lisbon with Hilke! Great vibes, excellent yoga sessions and grand memories. An absolute must for all Yogis & city trip lovers.
We'll be back! Barbara & Stefanie (GE) Hilke's Retreat gave me a new perspective on life in Lisbon. Her heartfelt and empathetic nature has touched my heart and soul. I am very grateful for the time she gave me strength and warmth with Forrest Yoga. Also off the mat. Pamela (AT) I had an all-round wonderful experience at my four day private yoga retreat with Hilke in Lisbon. Although I have been practicing yoga for a few years, it was my first real encounter with Forrest yoga and even the concept of an actual yoga “retreat”. Before I got to Lisbon, I told Hilke that I wanted to learn something new and also get a little challenged (and not just relax). I did get both, and even the physically demanding part was never lacking a smile or a joke from Hilke. Compared to a regular yoga class, the one on one interaction allowed me to take the time and get the attention I needed to fully understand and internalize new techniques that I can now continue practicing back home. I also feel like I significantly improved my breathing and posture that will help me in any type of yoga practice going forward. However, apart from the yoga, I felt extremely welcome and comfortable in Hilke’s home that she generously shared with me for a few days- a cosy and beautifully designed apartment with a lovely view of Lisbon’s old town. Plus the healthy and yummy home-made breakfast she prepared every morning, it was the perfect break from my jam-packed daily routine back home. Elaine (AT) I immediately felt home at Hilkes place. The appartment is cosy and lovely decorated. Starting the morning with yoga lessons and a great breakfast gave me a lot of energy for the full day. Hilke had a good understanding for my yoga level and gave me the chance to progress my skills daily. Absolutely recommend her, also for beginners. For me the stay was a perfect combination of relaxation and exercising. Kerstin (CH) My four days with Hilke in Lisbon were a wonderful and unexpected gift. The apartment is beautiful and has a fantastic view above Lisbon. I had no idea about Forrest-Yoga before, but now I feel it can be life changing. The sessions with her went deep into my body and my soul and I am so greatful for this experience. And the breakfast... well, the porridge is made for yoga-champs. Thank you Hilke for your presence, your warmth and sharing your gifts with me! Aglaia (GE) Have just had the most magical weekend with Hilke in Lisbon. I would highly recommend this wonderful retreat. Hilke is both an amazing yoga teacher who is very patient and caring who just knew how to adapt each practice into exactly what I needed and who is also an excellent generous host. I felt so very welcome in her beautiful, very comfortable home with the most amazing view. Breakfast was delicious and completely tailored to my taste and cooked fresh each morning. It could not have been more perfect! Thank you Hilke and I hope I can visit again soon. Pippa (GB) My wife and I had the pleasure to stay 2 nights in this scandinavian gem in the middle of Lisbon. Hilke was extremely attentive and competent both as a host and yoga teacher. She tailored yoga classes for my pregnant wife and I, focusing on body postures, muscle strengthening, stretching and relaxation. A delicious breakfast was cooked fresh every morning, providing a healthy boost of energy for the demanding walks in Lisbon. The bed was very comfortable, the view from the balcony was outstanding and the nordic design of her house made us feel at home. We can highly recommend Hilke and her beautiful place and we look forward to visit her again. <3
Matteo & Laura (DK) I spent 4 days with Hilke at the end of the year, and was so grateful to end my year feeling refreshed, inspired, stronger and healthier. This was partially due to the one-on-one yoga sessions (where I was able to get very personalized advice and tips that I rarely receive in group sessions), and partially due to the the delicious, fresh breakfasts each morning.

But so much of my refreshed feeling came from Hilke's warm and welcoming personality and home. It's always a little awkward for me to stay in someone else's home, but she was extremely comfortable to be around and successfully makes her home feel like yours. I invited her to join me for breakfast, and felt truly inspired from our chats and from her healthy lifestyle.

What I also loved is that you can turn this into whichever type of retreat you need — whether that be a very relaxing retreat, spending your afternoon reading at while overlooking the city in her apartment. Or it could be more active, exploring Lisbon during the day before or after your yoga practice.

I highly recommend treating yourself and going on this retreat. My only regret is that I didn't stay a little longer! Ashley (US) I stayed at YRL for 2 nights and It was an amazing experience: the yoga classes, the breakfast and the place. I thought I would meet just one more yoga teacher, but lucky me I met an extraordinary human being. Hilke was able to inspire me and to make me feel stronger. She motivated me to get to know myself better and to look for some answers inside of me. Thank you for the amazing time and talks. I really hope I can come back late this year. Catarina (PT) Retreat and holidays - fantastic couple experience.
I am writing this review from the partner point of view.
I have booked the retreat for my husband Pierre as a surprise gift (check his review Pierre Crucis) for him to slow down from his hustle life with work and obligations at home and find his balance back. We stayed at a AirBnB close to Hilkes House so that I could have the time he spent at the retreat to myself and simply get some holidays while he did his 4 days retreat with Hilke. I had a wonderful time enjoying Lisbon, especially all the nice tips that Hilke gave me.

For the retreat I d like to say: it was a great, wonderful and heartouching experience seeing the postive effect it had on my husband. I felt that he came back every day with new engery, new ideas and it seemed he felt released and charged.
At the same Hilke took the time over a coffee to also give me some Input. Hilke is a very special person who is gifted with a very high empathy and knows how to use it in the right way in order to help you move forward and touch you deep in your heart.

So if you are looking for a specific concept for one of you (friends or couples) to charge your batteries, change something or self reflection where the other one can be involved (in the form of simply seeing the process happen) while enjoying beautiful, charming Lisbon and even have some time at the end to celebrate this event together as a couple/friends/family in the afternoon this is definetly the place to go.
Very highly recommeded from my heart.
Dont even think about it; just book it - you will not regret it. Natalie (FR) Hilke welcomed me and my mother very warmly and prepared an unforgettable yoga retreat for us. The accommodation was inviting and cosy. After sightseeing it was great to come back "home". Hilke arranged the yoga sessions according to our wishes, needs and physical restrictions. The individual yoga exercises were introduced in detail and step by step - in some variations and always with a lot of fun! Not only the training but also the enriching conversations in between have motivated us to deal even more closely with yoga. The breakfast, which was included in the retreat package, was very varied, tasty and healthy. Food intolerances were no problem at all! Thank you for the fantastic yoga retreat, Hilke! Melanie & Gady (GE) About a year ago, I visited Hilke for 5 days and I am still tearing the time! Hilke is a wonderful hostess who lovingly responds to the needs of your traveler. Your apartment and the room, which is available, are very comfortably furnished. At breakfast Hilke goes to the wishes of the guest and conjures a good start to the day. For me mostly after the 1: 1 yoga class, but also there Hilke is flexible and depends on your wishes! I then went exploring the city, which naturally captivates you with its own charm ...

The yoga classes were very exciting and helpful for me. I did not know the style of Forrest Yoga that Hilke teaches before. I found it enriching to get these new impulses. Hilke worked with me on my challenging yogi exercises over the 5 days and gave me lots of tips to continue to benefit after the stay.

Most valuable for me were our conversations during the whole stay. Hilke is such a warm-hearted and open personality that inspires and enchants you!

So I can only recommend the trip to the Yoga Retreat Lisbon - especially for fresh solo travelers - at Hilke you do not feel alone and still have time for yourself. In addition, the city of Lisbon offers simply fantastic places to stroll, pause and enjoy ... Katharina (GE)
