    “There are moments when your life is at its peak. Such was the time I spent in India.
    I am teaching yoga for over 15 years. Times we go for a retreat is time to come back to oneself, peel layers of behaviour that doesn’t suit us anymore, and find out who we really are.
    I know all this, yet nothing prepared me for the experience I had.
    The unique journey in the landscapes of South India – the amazing beaches, the surf experience for the first time, and the vast jungle of Auroville made the perfect scenario for the opening of the heart. It was the first time in India for me and I felt at home.
    The yoga practice in this beautiful places allowed the group to be more intimate and connected on all kinds of levels. Especially since we where travelling together as a group, and I met myself not only as a yoga teacher but as a companion to my students.
    Coworking with Sandra Schultze was amazing. It felt as if we completed each other and this corporation taught me a lot about myself.
    Through Yotam Agam, the living spirit behind this amazing trip, and his deep connections in South India, we encountered so many inspiring people. These meetings, yoga sessions and different classes, reminded me how to surrender and I had deep, angelic experiences.
    This journey was an external and internal well balanced experience for me. It allowed peace to come into my heart, feeding my soul and it acompanies me ever since.”
    Rinat Reina / Israel

    “Auroville is really the city of dawn and an amazing example on how to live together , respect nature and practice well being. We had a quite and nurturing stay and left with a huge feeling of more”
    Bushra S. / India

    “The retreat was amazing! Beside having the best yoga teacher, staying in fabulous places and eating in great restaurants, I was surprised by the richness of the program. We did so much – music, temples, surfing, meditation, permaculture, cooking, nature… It was a great experience!”
    Michal Gur Shavit / Israel

    “Thank you so much for inviting me and making me feel a part of the community and festival! Felt blessed throughout. It also just confirms what I have been hesitating to do for sometime.. Just teach,guide and learn. I would love to participate in workshops and events anytime you organise it. Thank you! And a big hug to Sandra for being the loving kind person she is.”
    Swapna G. / India

    “It started when I read a note about a 3 days of yoga, surfing and music festival in India. I thought to myself it could be nice, but I didn’t imagine how amazing and significant this trip would be for me. For 11 days I was surrounded by wonderful special people and great workshops of many kinds, different types of yoga, chanting, surfing, music and many more.
    I got lucky to visit very special places and to meet great teachers.
    The schedule was very well planed. We had lovely Sandra, who was with us the whole time, lead us through the wonderful places, was there for us and took care of all our needs.
    I am so glad that I joined this trip, I got new friends and I know it is something I will never forget!
    I can’t wait for the next retreat 🙂 ”
    Oshrit Tsvi / Israel

    “Thank’s for a wonderful retreat / tour / trip to India…
    We had great time !!!! Both of you are loving, interesting and caring…
    Highly Recommended !!!!
    Call me for recommendations…”
    Ilana & Liora Grossman / Israel

    “The retreat was quite refreshing and rejuvenating for me. Surfing, acro yoga, good company, new places to name a few. Come to explore nature and good company and just chill. You carry good memories to savour for a long time and by the time memories start fading, head for another retreat and have fun. Just love it!”
    Pankaj Sharma / India

    “Dear Sandra and Yotam, words cannot really express the amazing yoga, music and retreat workshop experience in India. You gave us back more than 100% with love and care for every activity. I will be very happy to go with you any other workshop around the world. Highly recommend!!!”
    Moshik / Israel

    Rinat’s practice in the teaching arts of yoga began in 2001 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
    More than 15 years ago, Rinat was an aggressive lawyer, fighting her targets.
    But one day she crossed the path of yoga and it totally changed her life,
    bringing peace, serenity, optimism and self-awareness to her.
    Who knew that 15 years later she would devote her life teaching classes and workshops,
    facilitating teacher training courses and leading international retreats !

    Rinat has the unique ability to get her students to infuse the principles and practice of yoga
    in all branches of their lives, and to help them discover the healing components of this practice
    for mental liberation from old patterns, for physical empowerment and spiritual uplift.
    Her yoga sessions incorporate breath, muscle work and meditation
    to make renewed energy flowing through your daily life.

    Rinat will lead you through Ashtanga posture series with very specific adjustments
    that will bring you on a unique deepening path of your practice whatever your level is.
    She will adjust you by adjusting to you.


    Sandra Schultze came into yoga through a very personal path.
    Totally recalcitrant to any form of spirituality, she had to cross love’s path
    to open herself to yoga and its wide wild world.
    Invited to yoga by Yotam Agam, she stepped into her new life for good.

    With a background of literature studies, she left France and travelled around Asia
    for a year with a camera in her backpack and the will to report what she would see.
    Always going with the teasing flow of life, she returned to study editing
    at the Gobelins School and works till today as a video editor.

    When she became a mother, she started to be concerned by women’s issues and entered
    the fantastic world of animation on tiptoe by conceiving a feminist animation
    project for women’s empowerment. She worked at Directing and scriptwriting with the leading
    and multiple Award winning French Producers of animated Shorts – Sacrebleu Productions.

    Yoga helped her understand she has to step out of her editing cave and made it clear
    that the most important now for her is to take care of people.
    So don’t worry, you are in good hands.
