... and how did we end up here in the forest?
Wir sind Basti und Jordis zwei Freunde, die sich in Asturien in einem Surf- und Klettercamp kennengelernt haben. Abends am Lagerfeuer haben wir schnell Pläne geschmiedet, damals hat Jordis einen Ort für ihre Yoga -und Acroyogakurse in Köln gesucht. Basti ist Bauingenieur, hat lange in Köln gewohnt und wollte helfen. Aus der Halle in Köln wurde dann im Wahnsinn des ersten Coronalockdowns ein Retreatcenter im Bergischen Land. Es hätte nicht besser kommen können.
Projekt Brunnenhaus – der Umbau
Of course, such an old house always means a lot of work. We decided to renovate and modernize the well house ourselves. Of course, this is was only possible with the support of numerous helpers to whom we would like to express our sincere thanks. We have learned a lot (and are still learning), certainly not everything is perfect, but there is love and passion in the whole house.
I am Basti. Civil engineer, carpenter and economist from Berlin.
Now that I've been dabbling in real estate for a few years and started my own engineering firm, I wondered how I could get out of my suit once in a while. I am Basti. Civil engineer, carpenter and economist from Berlin.
So when Jordis wanted to open a retreat center, I said to myself - why not?
I'm Jordis. Former special education teacher and linguist, language learner, van traveler, dog lover, constant humming and ukulele playing life enthusiast who went from Yoga teacher to hostel mom and Yoga retreat owner overnight.
Before I decided to move into an old house in the middle of the forest, I was able to make numerous contacts around the world, which are now benefiting us. With our Brunnenhaus project I can finally bring together all my different passions and skills.
We are always happy to receive constructive feedback and new ideas.
