My name Carina Bogner and my heart is always burning for adventure! I have always had the urge to explore new places and new things, so after many travels and graduating from uni, I left my motherland Austria for the big city life in London. In between 3 jobs (one being primary school teacher), excessive parties and a lifestyle that was burning the candle at both ends I also rediscovered yoga (my first meeting with yoga was in my hometown at 16 years old). In contrary to an otherwise hectic and unhealthy pace that i was living, this new found practice was the only thing that made me feel peaceful. However on day I arrived at a point of burn out, hopelessness, having no vision for the future and questioning the whole meaning of existence.
I booked myself onto a teacher training in Ibiza in 2013 and my life was turned upside down. One month spent on top of a mountain, practicing yoga and meditation all day, every day, eating clean, no distractions available was the most life changing experience I have ever had. For the first time I truly felt my body and realised how disconnected I was from my self and how instead I was chasing after happiness and fulfilment, searching for it desperately on the outside. Many tears and stored up feelings were released at this time and I felt a deep healing slowly coming over me through practice and by the land of Ibiza.
It was set in the beautiful Ibizan rocks that I would be back! I flew to London, packed my stuff and without plans or a secure job set up a home on the island and never looked back!
Based on my personal experience I share my passion and knowledge of movement and bodywork, supporting YOU on your journey back to yourself, your inner voice and guidance and rediscovering your spark!
We live in a very contradictive time and are influenced by social media, corporations and society. On the other hand we have access to endless information about what is really happening in the world, new technologies and ideas. However all of this can somehow leave us feeling lost, stressed out and confused. So what is the way to find TRUE HAPPINESS? How can we experience ABUNDANCE, JOY, WELLBEING & PEACE?
My dharma (my purpose) is to serve as a guide and accompany your journey to reconnect to your HEART, your EMOTIONS and your inner teacher (atman). Through the tools of smoothly flowing asana practice, transformation breath work and awareness I will offer you a pathway back to a more RELAXED state of being.
You are a divine being with limitless potential and I am here to remind you of that!
To dive more intensively into your healing journey I offer several retreats in Ibiza and some handpicked destinations around the world.
A paradise island where the sun shines more than 300 days per year and thousands of holiday makers come every year for the world famous parties, beaches and.... a certain MAGIC. The early Phoenicians already declared Ibiza to be blessed by the Gods and honoured it's rich and fertile red soil. To this day inhabitants of the island honour the goddess Tanit who is known to protect the land and it's people from harm. Tanit is also the fertility goddess and is said to support especially women to fully come into their power and express themselves.
Many myths and legends surround the island of Ibiza. For example the island of Es Vedra. Some people say it sits on a huge quartz and therefore emits a strong energy that amplifies inhabitant's or visitor's emotions, ideas and expressions. Others say that it is the third most magnetic point on the planet or that it is the tip of the sunken city of Atlantis.
If all the legends and myths are reality or just tales passed on by generations, if you set foot on this gorgeous little island, it is most likely that you feel a certain kind of MAGIC. Since the early 60s it has been a magnet for artists, hippies, free spirits and creatives. Here people can be themselves and fully express who they are without being judged. Maybe that's what makes it so attractive. The stunning scenery and rich nature will make you return again and again. The perfect place to stop. To recharge. To enquire. And to JUST BE.
Recently Ibiza has been gaining reputation for being the new hot spot for wellness, yoga and spirituality. If you look at the pictures below, you will know why.
