      Yoga Class in Lima with Tilman

    Tils is a kind and passionate person. I was with my boyfriend in one of his outdoor yoga classes in Lima (we are beginners), the class was very interactive, he helped us all the time with asanas and movements and gave us some advice. I highly recommended Tilman.

      Yoga with Tilman Kneepkens

    I'm doing yoga after some time. The teacher is very good at it, is patient and make extra activities for the practitioners to become friends. If you wanna do yoga with an expert and make friends in a nice environment I totally reconmmed these lessons either for advanced learners or beginners!

  • Alexander Rojas   February 10, 2020

      Awesome Yoga classes

    As a yoga beginner I feel Till's classes has been perfect for me, he explains the positions in a very clear way. He shows in his classes the basic positions but also mentions the different variants you can have, so you can choose an easier variant or a harder one.

      Absolutely Amazing, Relaxing, and Fun!

    The retreat was very well organized and Tilman did a fantastic job taking care of all the details. The schedule allowed enough time for yoga, relaxation, socialization, and alone time. I really enjoyed the variation in activities and the atmosphere that the instructors and volunteers provided to make the retreat very enjoyable. The yoga sessions were fantastic. The sessions varied between indoors and outdoors, as well as between two different styles. The variety was refreshing and made each session exciting and relaxing in its own respect. Everybody from beginners to advanced were comfortable in the sessions.

      I loved it!!

    My first time trying yoga and I was amazed with the experience during the retreat. Both instructors had different styles and made me feel different benefits from their practices. It was like being in another dimension between the nicest place for the beach and having the chance to explore myself, inside my mind and body, enjoying me, feeling myself as I usually don't do. To me it was a really worthwhile vacation experience and I had the chance to be more conscious of myself and it was definitely a great way to start this 2020. They had the coolest program to enjoy the beach (volleyball was too fun), walks, games, music.. Also it was a great chance to meet great people from all over the world, I made very nice friends. And the food was so delicious, varied for veggies and no veggies, to enjoy Peruvian culture and dishes. Please let me know when the next retreat will be!!!

      Fantastic

    Tilman organised a 4 days retreat in Peru. The retreat was absolutely wonderful. Both our yoga teachers were skilled and I learned new postures with ease. The classes in the morning were energizing and in the evening - relaxing. The combination couldn't be better. All activities: beach volleyball, table games and swimming perfectly matched with the day schedule. I enjoyed all of them. Last but not least - food was delicious and healthy. Freshly cooked peruvian traditional meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plenty of fruits as well. The vegeterian and lactose free options were concidered. The atmosphere was friendly, tranquil, fun and absolutely fantastic. Til, thanks a million for this great experience!
