Welcome to the ultimate relaxation retreat!

Treat yourself to some nourishing time-out, rebalance, recentre yourself in this Heavenly Spot hill retreat, sometimes even above the clouds.

Reset your pace of life with finding new enjoyment for the present moment.

Namaste! Indulge in one-on-one Yoga instructions in an intuitive and gentle way with an individually challenging edge for healthy expansion. Maja is a certified and registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance and specialises in intuitive yoga for personal practice. This can be your introduction to yoga or an individually tailored program on a beginner or intermediate level and will provide support for developing your own practice.

Maja encourages the usage of intuition in practicing yoga, which can greatly help with really listening to your body and gently adjusting the postures to your individual needs. A feeling of comfort is our guide in all we do, which wonderfully enhances well-feeling on all levels of being. This experience is enriched with the best organic food available, seasonal veggies from our garden, and a diet based on Ayurvedic principles for optimal health benefits.

If you choose to be supported in developing ideas for a gradual improvement in your lifestyle towards wholistic healthy choices, we are more than happy to help, also including the development of new positive self-support and nurturing ways to realize this in daily life. A beautiful feeling of new centredness, a new nourishing and well-grounded connection to Mother Earth along with new appreciation for life will create natural contentedness and serene happiness.


Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.


Meditation instructions can be provided either personally or alternatively we provide a CD with simple and basic but profound audio instructions spoken by Russell Delman. We have Russell Delman’s consent to use his instructions. There are no further affiliations with his teachings.

Yoga also is a perfect preparation for meditation, calming our minds, supporting us to focus in a new way, to create clarity and helps us to access that precious peaceful realm within.

Extras can be provided for special deep relaxation treatments like arranging a reflexology appointment with Elisa Lanau or a Reiki session with Nicole Du Guay. Both are locally operating therapists here in Sumner.


Our bodies are our gardens – our wills are our gardeners.



Yoga mats and props as well as meditation cushions and seats are provided, you only need to bring comfortable clothing which allows you to move freely.


At Heavenly Spot Retreats we focus on receiving the gifts of our intuition, allowing them to enrich our lives with little wonders to discover along the way…

Claudia & Roman      The Yoga sessions offered were the main attraction for us to book our stay at Heavenly Spot Homestay. On arrival the atmosphere in this lovingly and tastefully decorated retreat together with the stunning views over the Pacific Ocean left us speechless. We liked the Yoga sessions a lot, because Maja adjusted the practice in an optimal way to suit our individual needs. The healthy breakfast after Yoga and everything else was just perfect for us. The intuitive aspect of Yoga was new to us, and we have now started a daily Yoga practice in the morning!
