“Play with your heart – Sing with your soul”

Ukulele & Yoga Retreat

Mandala de Masca

2 October – 9 October  2020

Time for you and the Ukulele?

This Ukulele & Yoga retreat week is created for everyone who is enthusiastic about and wants to bring more music into their life.

Even if you never have had an instrument in your hands it will be a great week.

We start from the true beginning, with the basics. The Ukulele is an easy to play instrument and really anyone can learn to play the Ukulele.

We will also learn and sing a lot of Mantras (while playing the Uke).

The retreat is therefore also great for Yoga teachers to introduce new Mantras (while playing the Uke) into your classes….

What will you learn?

You will learn all the basic knowledge you need to know about the Uke.

You will learn how to play the uke, how to read chords, strumming and much more….

And if you have the basics in your hands, we will start to play a lot!

You also will learn what mantras are and how you can possibly use them in your classes. You will learn how you can use your voice to guide yourself and much more!

Every day you learn new mantras and other beautiful songs from all over the world. During this retreat week  you will start to create your own repertoire that you will take home!

Her ukulele goes to the beach, every campfire and party, but she also often plays mantras during her yoga classes or organizes a mantra evening in her yoga studio.
