* Thanks again for a wise, simple and generous yoga practice.
Ruth Solveig Steinsland,
* Liebste Imken! I love your yoga sharings! Your knowledge on asanas, mantras, mudras, the body seems infinite. How you tailor the classes to the needs of the people present is incredible. I love the flow, the combo of yin & yang. The music you play and use it fitting each moment as if it was made for it, especially the shavasana melody you play on the guitar is so sweet. Your touch is gentle and healing.
Flora, Shambala Gatherings
* Vielen Dank nochmals für die wunderbaren Yogastunden mit dir, sie haben so gut getan
und deine liebevolle Art zu unterrichten war sehr motivierend immer wieder zu kommen.

A week of deeply relaxing, energizing and fun Yoga & Dance at Sardegna Retreat’s exclusive luxury villa with private swimming pool within a nature reserve right at the ocean.
Join Imken Donde for a special week of transformative, fun and inspirational Yoga & Dance at the beautiful Portobello villa in its unspoiled nature reserve with private gardens, infinity pool, overlooking ocean and 360 degrees panoramic views !
A 150 meter walk to the first ocean bay, and a 10 minnute walk to the first large sandy beach "Baya del’ Amore", Portobello’s nature is unspoiled, ocean crystal clear, and its rocky cliffs are of unique and mesmerizing beauty.
Sounds of the ocean and tranquility are our evening’s pleasures, as much as making new friends and getting in some important you time, relaxing, swimming, doing absolutely nothing, or going exploring the beautiful flora and fauna, a vast variety of beaches, nearby rocks or neighboring towns.
Arrival day is on Sunday 19th May 2019 when we’ll have a relaxed welcome session late afternoon, and then there will be two yoga classes per day.
Our morning sunrise practice starts at 8am and will be 2 hours ca. The practice will be gently dynamic & invigorating to free energies and mind, as well as bringing focus and opening our bodies. We’ll weave simple dance moves together with slower Hatha and Sama Yoga, and floor based work at the end will get us into deep relaxation and ready for a delicious breakfast brunch. Beginners as well as advanced are welcome.
Afternoons will follow with a more relaxed slow-flow, around 1.5-2 hours, and exploring Yin, Restorative & Somatic Yoga and simple self-massage techniques. Meditation, Partner Yoga and breath work will also be offered. Around 6-7pm a delicious vegetarian evening buffet will be served.
In all of the classes we will take care of individual needs and give space for the less experienced to be able to explore postures peacefully and at the level appropriate. And of course, all classes are optional! The rest of the time will be free to do as we please, enjoying the beach, massages, reading a book, making new friends, climbing rocks, any other optional activities and excursions… and watching the marvelous sunsets of course!
There’ll be one afternoon off from yoga to allow for a longer excursion to explore Santa Teresa’s local market & town centre, and around 5pm we’ll head towards the beautiful rocks at Capo Testa Peninsular.
The final yoga session will be on Sunday morning 25th May, followed by a closing ceremony and final breakfast together.
The villa houses 12 participants comfortably and is equipped with 6 twin rooms with double & twin beds. If with double bed, it has a separate single bed. 1 extra room is without bath and uses the spare bathroom next to pool. Internet is accessible in the lounge, though we’ll keep it to a minimum.
For our Yoga & Dance classes, we have four spaces to chose from: a 128sqm terrace, large lawn with ocean view, wooden plank terrace next to pool, and a sheltered space with roof & open to terrace; fully equipped with yoga mats, blankets, yogistar blocks, belts and Thai massage puzzle mats.
The founders of Sardegna Retreat, Anne Wuchholt, German-born, and Remo, a true Sarde, founded Sardegna Retreat some years back and since have been running retreats at Portobello so successfully so that they’ve taken on a second villa in 2019. Both are absolutely lovely, kind and caring people.
Remo will pamper us with twice daily vegetarian meals (fruits, snacks, tea & water is available throughout the day), and Anne is a certified massage trainer & therapist and will be available for Thai massage & Shiatsu. Imken will offer Craniosacral.
Bed linen, sheets & towels are there for us, and all rooms are cleaned three times throughout our stay.
