Women’s Wellness Retreat – Yoga, Meditation, & Writing Practice

September 13 - September 15

September 13-15, 2019
(Friday late afternoon until Sunday afternoon)
A Fall Kick-Off Weekend

Join ​Kristin Tovson​ and ​Molly Brown​ for a wellness weekend combining meditation, yoga, and creative writing. Find strength and inspiration from nature in the countryside amid the gorgeous fall foliage of northern Germany. This retreat is your opportunity to relax and unplug from daily life, and to reconnect to yourself and your community. Rosenwaldhof is located in nearby Brandenburg with its verdant glacial mounds, lush forest, Havel River and numerous lakes. Only an hour from Berlin, this private retreat will nourish your heart, mind and body—all you need is an open mind and a willing spirit. The center offers tasty organic vegetarian home-cooked fare, spacious rooms, and a magnificent setting for walking, cycling, or a climb up to the 108m Götzer Berg with its panoramic views. Massages are also available and must be booked directly through the retreat center. To ​RSVP​ and for further info, contact Kristin Tovson ​kristintovson@gmail.com


Kristin Tovson​ – As a professional dancer and lover of all things movement, Kristin discovered yoga nearly 20 years ago and became immediately hooked. She teaches Vinyasa yoga, a moving meditation of poses and breath occupying the same conscious space. While emphasizing proper alignment and mechanics, she always leads with a sense of humor, compassion and ease. She aims to teach people to be at home in their bodies, connected to and invested in their own health and well-being. Since completing her first 200-hour certification at OM Yoga Center in NYC, she has taught in various contexts: yoga studios, health clubs, senior citizen centers, prenatal classes at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, as well as to a crowded room full of 60 college students at Arizona State University. She moved to Berlin in 2009 as a Fulbright Scholar and has since completed her 500-hour OM Yoga certification and is also a certified Yoga for Cancer teacher. She teaches privately and at various studios around the city. She is mom to two wild girls ages 7 and 4. ​www.kristintovson.com



Molly Moylan Brown​ ​will lead the Creative Writing component of the Wellness Retreat. Through a series of variously timed writing prompts and build-on exercises, participants will explore their minds and hearts to unleash their authentic voices, to discover the power of words, while also finding trust and inspiration from fellow participants in this guided, shared experience. No writing experience necessary. Pen and notebook required. Molly is a professionally trained teacher, actress, theatre director, and creative consultant with degrees in creative writing, film, theatre, philosophy, art history, and religion. She has led creative writing, theatre improvisation, acting, and screenwriting & scriptwriting workshops for more than 25 years, to varied audiences including undergrad and graduate university students at leading US schools, international corporate and not-for-profit audiences, select community groups, and private classes. Molly is delighted to be pairing her unique classes in creative writing and improvisation with other practitioners in the world of the arts and healing practices to offer a rich experience in empowered self-expression & storytelling, community vitality, and transformation.
