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 found Hilke's retreat a little by accident. It was the best thing that could happen to me at that moment in my life. Hilke is an amazing person who brings a lot of peace, understanding and knowledge. I don't remember the last time someone cared for me like Hilke. She is also a wonderful teacher who knows how to match the yoga type to the level and needs of the student. Five days at YRL allowed me to relax, connect with myself and make a real break.It is certainly not an exaggeration to call it a life-changing experience.
Thank you for everything, Hilke! For your company, for being such a good listener, delicious and beautiful breakfast and the possibility of spending some time in your wonderful house full of treasures :)
A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to spend 5 days with Hilke on what became an essential part of my healing journey. I am beyond thankful and humbled by Hilke's presence.
From our first emails to the minute she welcomed me into her space, it was obvious that she is one of those precious people that you don't encounter too often in life. She is such a warm-hearted and caring spirit, and at the same time very witty and a great conversation partner. Even a chat with her is inspirational and healing.
I came to do yoga, but after an especially challenging time I had the need to address the trauma stuck in my body and Hilke provided a safe space for body and mind. We laid the framework for my body to feel safe within healthy motion, trying to unlearn movement patterns that were not beneficial. I am still able to integrate the exercises she showed me into my everyday life and be more self-aware.
We also spent a lot of time doing breath work and guided meditation - two things I was always scared of until I met Hilke. Her sense of connection is magic, you can feel the energy and love flowing in every touch and guiding encouragement. Now, about 2.5 months after my stay, I am still able to breathe more freely than the decades before. Whatever issue you want to address, or even if you just want to knock yourself out with yoga, I am sure that Hilke will be able to give you the best possible experience.
In case you were wondering, her apartment is the most beautiful space you could imagine staying in. It is full of light and beautifully decorated with a spectacular view, I felt at home instantly. She provides a nourishing breakfast according to your preferences and I would argue she will win any porridge-making contest, if there is such a thing. I still improvise my porridge Hilke-style at home and continue to have it almost every day.
Hilke gave me so much in such a short time - inspiration and motivation, mindfulness, relaxation and more self-love, body-awareness and about a bazillion things more.
I am grateful to have followed my intuition to this magical place and person. Obrigada - Danke - Thank you, Hilke for everything!
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.
