"Life changing experience!"I've been to yoga retreats in the past but this was the most amazing experience I've ever had. Peace and kindness were the marks of the days. The yoga and the fellowship were great, and the food was simply delicious. Can't wait to go back. Neil Price, United States "Gaia is when your heart finds a home" I really loved this awesome Yoga retreat! Anat and Eran really know how to make you feel home. Everyone coming there is not just a visitor, but a friend and a part of the tribe. Everything was really perfect. I still feel how warm it makes my heart. The Yoga sessions were really really nice and the vegan food we got was incredibly delicious! I highly recommend this to everyone searching for their inner peace. Thank you so much, you beautiful people! :) Sinem Dienes, Germany

Venue Highlights

Gaia is an international retreat house, set amongst gentle hills and quiet woodlands of the Meissner Geo-Naturpark Frau-Holle-Land, in the heart of Germany, 25 min. drive from the city of Kassel.

The house offers a homey and intimate space for individuals, families, and groups to go out from their hectic life into a supportive environment of wellness, encounter, movement, and creativity.

The “Gaia Zentrum” was originally founded in 1990 operating as a successful seminar house for 27 years. On March 2017, it was handed to us and today, “Gaia Retreat House” is a family-owned business managed & operated by Eran & Anat.


Gaia’s rooms are homey, comfortable and intimate. They have been renovated and redecorated last year, so each room has its own unique ambiance. This home atmosphere of Gaia, makes many of our guests re-book the same room they have stayed on their last visit.

The house has 11 guest rooms (4 single, 3 double, 1 triple, 1 dormitory for 5, and 1 privet suite for the leaders) divided between three floors and equipped with all of the essential facilities. The seminar activities take place in our beautiful 75 square mile Garden Studio located on the ground floor. The house has 7 WC & 3 Bathrooms.

The house is very simple but will give you warm & loving hospitality :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
