Dear Pingel,

I just wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude for the amazing dancing retreat that I attended recently. Your guidance and instruction were truly transformative for me. Your big heart and warm personality made me feel safe and supported throughout the entire retreat. I learned so much about accepting my emotions and processing them through dance. The practices and exercises you introduced us to have had a profound impact on my life. I feel like I have grown so much emotionally and mentally since attending your retreat. Your encouragement, patience, and enthusiasm were infectious and helped me push past my comfort zone. The dancing was invigorating and full of emotions, and I truly felt alive and connected to myself during those moments. I would highly recommend your retreat to anyone who is feeling stuck emotionally and needs a safe space to let things out and process their emotions. Thank you for everything you do, Pingel. You are truly a gift to those who have the privilege of learning from you.

With deepest gratitude,

An amazing transformative retreat!

I felt really stressed, over-whelmed and disconnected to myself and my loved ones. 

I wanted to specifically do a somatic retreat using dance and movement to reconnect with myself. When I saw that this was a Personal 1:1 retreat; diving into a deep transformational journey inwards, I knew I wanted to go.

Pingel’s detailed description of what the retreat would entail was really thorough which enticed me to go ahead and book this retreat.

I wanted to be in the mountains so this retreat in Andalucia was perfect, the location is stunning.

It is so peaceful and quiet, surrounded by the mountains, beautiful nature, orange trees, olive trees, almond trees and many more things that Pingel & Peter grow on their land.

Pingel is an incredible person with so much knowledge that I am very grateful for. She helped to calm my nervous system and feel a connection with my body, it was incredibly profound to feel this after so many years.

Pingel’s healing retreat is structured in a way that is relaxing, fun, and intense at times; every day being self-discovery. All of her sessions flow with ease and as time goes on a greater understanding of yourself happens. The varied sessions Pingel does work deep within and are transformative.

The NIA sessions were so much fun and emotional at times. I still dance every day, sometimes a few times a day!
There isn’t a day that has passed since the retreat that I don’t think about it, it is nice to look back at my journal of all the things I have learned from Pingel and what I did that week.

I learned that you carry so much ‘stuff’ in your body and by reconnecting and getting to know your body and sensations then past traumas/issues can be healed and released. I feel a sense of freedom now and an inner strength and love for myself.

The food cooked by Peter was outstanding, it was so delicious. He uses as much as he can from their land and creates healthy lunches and dinners.

His guacamole was the best I have tasted using the fresh avocados they grow. It was not a problem at all for Peter to provide me with vegan dishes, I have written down some of his recipes to cook at home as they were that tasty!

I really enjoyed sitting with Pingel and Peter at lunch and dinner times, it was always relaxing, fun, and great conversations were had between us.

They are a special couple with an adorable dog they rescued called Noah and many beautiful cats.

The accommodation was cozy and comfortable and I really enjoyed sitting outside the front in the shade and round the back in the sun with a springtime/summer pool and lovely views. I went in January and still a great place to sit outside to relax and enjoy the sunshine.

The retreat was an experience I will hold in my heart forever and I hope to return there one day.

Thank you, Peter, for everything, and Pingel for being authentically you and for being a great guide, coach, and teacher.

Ready to get to know your body and take a deep dive.

I needed some time for myself, a break from work and daily life. 

The dancing part of the retreat attracted me. 

It was a deep dive in personal development. For me it opened up some patterns and things that are holding me back. It was good to get that insides. Your body has a lot of answers, this retreat makes them visible, I think that can be helpfull for everyone. 

Pingel and Peter are wonderfull hosts. They create a safe space where you can be yourself. The lovely house, lush garden and delicious food make the retreat complete.

Me is real Me

I was just a bypasser of my own life. I needed to start to feel and be me again. 

I chose this offering as it was a 1:1 retreat with the word ‘freedom’ in a description of what I wanted, and it didn’t matter that it involved dancing.

The resistance in the head for changes is a real thing. Being able to overcome it, to participate, to want change was stronger than any small thought of I cannot, I am shy, and I don’t know how to do it.

Pingle was a fantastic guide into my secret world of myself. The connection she helped to create with my true inner self is an experience of a different kind and I value that very much.

Every session was like reading a new chapter and gaining a new part of myself. Not only sessions, Pingel and Peter gave me a safe place to be. Not to mention all the love I got from lovely animals there, especially Noah.

The biggest accomplishment was gaining myself back after 8 years of being a wallpaper in my own life and realising how much love I should give to myself just for being.

Oh, and the way how I feel my body and how I connect with it now… Wow.

I am truly grateful there are Pingel and Peter in this world.

And… I still keep dancing in mornings. It makes my day better 🙂

10/10 retreat!

I had been feeling very low and had been struggling for a very long time with my self-image and self-esteem.

When winter arrives my struggles usually intensify so this year I decided to do something active about it. It is also the last month of the year and I really wanted to go into the new year with a fresher mindset.

I liked where it was located and I liked that it was a women’s one on one retreat.

Pingel’s description of the retreat and what it offered really spoke to me more than any other retreat I had looked into while researching, and it became pretty clear to me after speaking to her that that was a retreat I wanted to try out.

What I liked the most was all the incredible knowledge I got from speaking to Pingel and doing her workshops. It was exactly what I had needed and I am so happy and grateful I listened to my gut and went along with it.

I also liked how beautiful and idyllic the place was, and how good and at ease I felt all the time. Pingel and Peter really are a wonderful couple and both of them made it very easy for me to feel comfortable (when I usually feel uncomfortable in social settings).

They were incredibly easy to talk to and had a very comforting, joyful, and positive energy around them at all times. I also really loved the presence of the animals, particularly Noah the dog, and Luca the cat, the chickens were also really cool to be around! Another thing that was great was the food, not only was it healthy but it was very delicious (thank you Peter!).

All the conversations we had were easy and fun, there was never a dull moment. I truly liked every single thing about this retreat!

I have learned so much about myself in just one week, and I have so much more knowledge about everything related to the mind and body, and how much power they hold! I have had a very toxic relationship with myself, and I struggled a lot with doing everyday activities, everything felt like a burden.

The biggest thing I have gotten from this retreat is that I have been looking at the wrong places for answers, I have learned that many of the answers to my problems lie within myself. That the power is within me and that I have the ability to regain it and find joy in my life.

I feel like I have the tools now to restore my relationship with myself and to live life at my fullest potential. Although I still have a lot of work to do to get there, I feel very confident about the journey I am about to get on, because I now know what I need to focus on moving forward.

Right after the week (and during) I felt really good in my body, I had been eating very healthy food and sleeping very well which I felt the results of pretty quickly.

Also being surrounded by beautiful nature and experiencing what a peaceful environment was like had immediate effects on me. It felt really good!

I truly cannot put into words how life-changing this was for me.

I will forever carry with me all the knowledge I have gotten from Pingel and from the workshops we have done. It has opened my eyes in a way that has never happened before.

For someone who has struggled immensely with understanding her own self, this was very much needed. I can confidently say I am on a guaranteed road to healing and growing and finding joy in my life, and I have so much to look forward to!

If you are considering trying out this retreat, don’t second guess it! Do it! It’s so wonderful!
