Join Bodhi Jeffreys and Majbritt Cristel Kiss as they weave their work together for a journey of self-discovery, healing, peace and joy on Margaret Island in the middle of the Danube River in Budapest. The acclaimed 4-Star Danubius Health Spa Resort Margitsziget is the ideal natural setting for this restorative retreat.

Majbritt will lead sessions of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga throughout the retreat, allowing your mind to rest and your heart to open. One of her great gifts is how she easily provides beginners with a great yoga experience while assisting those experienced in yoga to new levels.

Bodhi's warm and soothing voice will bring you into deep states of awareness, peace and joy that will be with you long after you leave the retreat. He will support you in being more gentle with yourself and to effortlessly live more in harmony with those around you.

The healing waters of the thermal baths are renowned for supporting the healing of a wide variety of health challenges, including digestive, liver, kidney and gallbladder issues. And if you're generally healthy, the waters can help bring you to new levels of wellbeing.

You will return home feeling replenished, fully alive, in balance, with a newfound sense of freedom.

"Majbritt is that kind of person who is born with a special gift full of compassion. She has developed and refined this gift, which she passes on/transmits where ever she goes. Her yogaclass is gentle, but filled with the depth and insight she has gained through her own experience. I highly recommend her and look forward to more yoga with her. "  ~  Lene Bjergland, Psychotherapist & MA

"My first yoga retreat ever was with Majbritt Kiss on Margaret Island in Budapest and it was truly magical. Majbritt is a very attentive, competent, inspiring, and deep yoga teacher who makes each yogi feel special and recognized. There was a special bond created between us all, included Majbritt, whom I will never forget. Thank you for five fantastic days."  ~  Iben Andersen

    Bodhi has exceptional wisdom and practical knowledge, always applied with a gentle heart. I learned ways of "being" that allow me to enjoy my life, heal my pain, and be peaceful during heated circumstances.I highly recommend Bodhi as a teacher of teachers.

  • Bodhi always leaves me feeling more empowered, more joyful, more truly accepting...

    Helle Laursen Leading Mentor Coach and CEO, Nordic Center for Mindful Self-Compassion Silkeborg, Denmark

    Working with Bodhi repeatedly over several years, I am constantly filled with deep gratitude after each session. Bodhi always leaves me feeling more empowered, more joyful, more truly accepting all parts of what I am, and with more energy to face life. Being a mentor coach myself, I have learned from Bodhi's amazing ability to give further depth to any issue within coaching. He is more than just a great coach, he is embodied wisdom, ready to share and give more meaning and depth to all matters I bring up. Bodhi takes coaching to a new level: it is healing, very practical, and supports my commitment to live my life from compassion and awareness.

  • I forget Bodhi is at the other side of the planet – he is truly with me when we work together.

    Lisbet Hjort Author, Awakening Mentor, Human Resources Manager Copenhagen, Denmark

    There is a before and an after regarding my work with Bodhi. Before working with Bodhi for many years I experienced a life with a lot of struggle, pain and resistance, both in my private and my business life. Today I experience a life with joy, love and peace – even amidst the challenges of life. I’ve never actually been with him in person – but I sense his energy, his warmth and love in our work. I forget Bodhi is at the other side of the planet – he is truly with me when we work together.

    Bodhi is a gift in the world – he can work on many levels which means that you can work and grow on many levels too. I will always be very grateful that we connected and I highly recommend Bodhi to everybody that really wants to live a life in freedom.

  • I am learning to live with an open, positive heart thanks to Bodhi's wisdom and guidance.

    Julie Sidur Insurance Professional Oceanside, California

    Working with Bodhi on an individual basis is teaching me how to see the truth about my self-defeating ways and empowering me to deal with the toxic energy in me from as far back as my childhood. He is helping me break free from my negative, conditioned responses that I have had most my life. I am learning to be able to express myself more clearly from my authentic higher self. All I have ever wanted to do is to be able to connect with people.

    Bodhi shows me how to do this through helping me to process what is really going on inside, seeing what is truly needed and proceeding from a grounded, secure place in my communication with people in my life. I am learning to live with an open, positive heart thanks to Bodhi's wisdom and guidance. For this I will be forever grateful to Bodhi.
