Slow Flow Yoga ...

A Mindful yoga in a turbulent age

Personal Training individually tailored

What is Slow Flow Yoga

… relax into every situation, LIVE your essential power.

The Yoga with Cognition experience… For gaining enlightenment and inspirational ideas. Flowing with the breath and being conscious without attachment and judgement. In each cell of your body are the keys to more holistic health, more vital life energy and true happiness. Yoga with Annette Harnisch is not a wellness event – it is about to BE conscious.

Opening into awareness …

Since 1983, Annette Harnisch continuously develops her yoga style. In this way you could say that SLOW FLOW YOGA is a combination of Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Qui Gong and Buddhist meditation.

With techniques from Hatha Yoga and Meridian Yoga, we bring the energy flow of the meridians / Nadis and thus all organ systems into balance and support our body in self-healing. We nourish our soul, clear our mind, come to a better attitude in many ways, learn to recharge our batteries, let go and become more relaxed. We relax into every asana (= posture) and with exercise in every situation.

You feel alive, relaxed and balanced afterwards …

The Slow Flow Yoga style has its focus on · mindfulness and the awakening of the body consciousness. Not as super-gentle as some yoga teachers of the Power Yoga believe – you will have sore muscles! We work with the consciousness, the emotions, meridians and fascia, straightening the spine and the whole person, and if necessary also with meditation …I will invite you to reduce the over-worrying and thinking dysfunction that causes stress and to open to a deeper state of awareness and sensitivity to enjoying the life moments by connecting you to your breath and body.

 The Slow Flow Yoga style has its focus on Mindfulness and the awakening of body awareness

What is the Slow Flow Yoga with Annette Harnisch about?

It is about nothing less than your true essence, your potential to awaken your true Buddha Nature. Slow Flow Yoga allows us to overcome our toxic emotions, prejudices, and useless negative thoughts and habits over time. It releases us from stress and gives us PEACE IN THE HEART so that we can discover, awaken, and be connected to our true nature. The misconception of ourselves is the root of all our problems. Slow Flow Yoga is detox for the soul and helps you to overcome all obstacles to your personal and spiritual progress.

It is about nothing less than to discover your true essence, to awaken your potential, your Buddha Nature 


Spinal Yoga - Therapeutic Yoga

… alignment for body, mind & soul

With Yogi Techniques, as Yin Yoga, Yoga for the Fascias, spiral dynamic… we improve our metabolic system, our nervous system, our body-posture and the energy flow of our meridians/Nadis. In this way we counteract the wear and tear, prevent herniated discs, and achieve a better body-posture and a better attitude.

The 90 minutes Yoga Sessions are structured in a way, that all organic systems get the right attention.

After the session you will feel vital, but at the same time relaxed and balanced

Suffering spinal and joint pain Annette Harnisch recommends 10 private sessions, for which she will compile an individual exercise program.

Back pain can be relieved by bowing down… (Bert Hellinger) 

Buddhacasa La Palma - Yoga & Healing Space

The Buddhacasa is a consecrated temple with stupa in the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and is suitable for small  Yoga groups up to 5 people and healing space.

Annette Harnisch is a trained yoga teacher and has been practicing  Vipassana meditation to Goenka since 1983. Annette has been giving local yoga groups and international retreats for couples and individuals for more than 20 years on the holiday island of La Palma.   She has been training since 2014 in the „Centro internacional de estudios budistas“ in Denia / Spain and received her certificate as a meditation teacher in September 2018.

Bodycoaching ...

… a moving journey to your self

What is Bodycoaching ...

Emotional Detox …

Touch, move, release blockages …
… connected to your original BEING again

Is both, holistic body therapy and body-oriented psychotherapy for the treatment of physical and psycho-emotional tension patterns.

Body coaching is far superior to talking therapies, as we can deftly bypass the mind.

Free your body – your mind will follow …

A synthesis of various body-therapeutic and energetic methods such as Feldenkrais, Biodynamic Craniosacral Osteopathy also known as Ortho Bionomy, Entanglement, Reconnection, Quantum Healing, Body Coaching, Energy and Breathing work. It opens the way for healing to occur.

Body coaching resolves outdated traumas that prevent you from living your potential   …


Mindful touch, which touches the whole person and his soul through the body, brings light into the darkness, brings your own awareness into each cell of your body and thereby dissolves traumas stored in the body. Alone the careful touch leads you into deep relaxation up to transpersonal experiences, into your inner SPACE, in which healing happens. Blockages are solved. We integrate, balance out chakras and balance the life energy.

„What you think, you will BE. You attract what you feel. What you imagine, you create. „Buddha Shakyamuni

In this way, old emotions that are still stored in the body or the aura can be dissolved and thus create space for the free flow of the life force. All the obstacles and resistances between you and the free flow of life energy have given space for healing insights. The body enters a state of deep relaxation, which also allows the soul to let go.

Negative thoughts and feelings can give way to healing knowledge.

My mission as a naturopath and healer is to bring you in touch with your very own potential – your authentic BEING, to show you more clarity, new perspectives and your own spectrum of possibilities. The energy and information obtained will help you to expand your consciousness and illuminate your shadows, to discover your own light, to restore your energy level and your natural health. You learn to love and accept others more and more the way they are. You will notice significant improvements in your relationships and also in relation to yourself and your life. Read my Vita …

Healing happens when the contact to the own essence,
to the source of our power and vitality, is restored.

General information ...

Thank you for your trust.

Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Healing

…the queen of massages awakens and revitalizes your life energy

and gives you a feeling of total safety


Lomi Lomi bodywork uses lots of dancelike, flowing forearm strokes which wash freely over the receiver’s minimally draped body in a way frequently compared to ocean waves. This particular Lomi Lomi style is known as Temple Lomi.

After a Lomi Lomi massage you will feel like you have been reborn. This traditional Temple massage is characterized by gentle stretching, dynamic massage of deep tissue, conscious touch, awareness, Rhythm and Stillness. Powerful but at the same time gentle.

Strokes with the lower arms and hands working at fascia, muscles and connective tissue, invite your body to release all blockages and tension pattern. In this way it heals the emotional and mental causes of these blockages and reconnects you to who you are…

For a complete “Lomi Lomi nui Kahi Loa Energy massage and –Balancing with shells or Crystals”, which can cause a profound healing you need to have at least two hours.

Since 1993 Annette Harnisch is a licensed Hawaiian Healing Practioner.

“Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist.”

Eckhart Tolle

Magic Lava Lomi Lomi with Crystal Healing

Do not miss this ultimate-La Palma-Healing experience!

Transformative Bodywork – A Lomi Lomi inspired massage with hot lava – olivine stones, therapeutic conversation, energy balance with lava stones and matrix crystal healing. The Magic Lava Lomi definitely is not a Spa hot stone massage!

A Lomi Lomi – inspired massage with hot lava stones from La Palma warms up your soul, removes blockages and can act as deep healing. Due to the presence and caring intention of the energy therapist, this massage reconnects you again with your essence, with the source of your power. This flowing, stroking, kneading massage actively stimulates the blood circulation and lymphatic flow. Releasing tensions from the body, the energy field is noticeably more balanced, and it helps you to free your mind.

Are you ready for transformative Temple Lomi bodywork in the Buddhacasa on the volcanic island of La Palma? You need to book 2-3h. This includes a therapeutic conversation, maybe a Hooponopono, program the lava stones with your request, Energy balance with crystals and 15 minutes of resting time.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage - Spice Powder Massage

Detox & relax …

A Retreats whith 5 Ayurvedic Yoga Massages is a good alternative to the real Ayurveda cure because of its healing effects without elaborate preparation.


Ayurvedic Yoga Massage  combines traditional Indian marma point massage and assisted yoga-based stretching therapy.

An individual session of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is given on a Shiatsu mat, but also possible on the massage table. Both hands and feet are used in the delivery of massage. The treatment involves alternation between deep tissue massage and a series of stretches covering all regions of the body.

Therapeutic stretches, mobilisations and other healing techniques are applied according to clients’ needs. Gradually, a sense of presence and awareness is brought to the receiver. Another unique tool of the massage is the use of  powder like calamus, cinnamon, cloves, ginger which, when mixed with just a little oil, brings out the toxins from the body; the scrubbing and stimulating feeling awakens the skin and improves blood circulation.

An ayurvedic massage requires that you allow 10 minutes rest time for the valuable oils to enter the deep tissues. We will need at least 90 minutes to 2 hours for a session of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.

Medizin Walk ...

… self-knowledge through the power of nature

Medicine Walk ...
to Rediscover Your True Power

… a moving journey to yourself in the mirror of nature! At chosen places of power on La Palma island!

Learn how you can find answers to your important questions in life with the ancient ritual of Medicine Walk in nature and draw new strength. On the medicine hike, you consciously enter with your question into nature, where we can cleverly sail around your mind as you are also connected to your very own nature.
Depending on the season and the weather I am looking for different places of power that I have tested myself in the last 20 years.

Where are the places of power of La Palma ...

Biosphere Reserve La Palma – untouched nature

We visit exquisite places of power of La Palma island which I was allowed to try in the last 20 years I live here. I deliberately choose locations or times when we would not be disturbed by large hiking groups. So that we will have enough SPACE and STILLNESS and loneliness to Be, for STALKING and DREAMING, for loud singing and drumming.

These places of power lie on lava flows in the nature reserve “Tubo volcanico de Todoque Las Palomas “ or on the “Coladas de San Juan”, in the desert “Llano del Jable”, in the forest above El Paso, in a ravine with waterfalls …

What will we do ...

At the starting point we start with a small purification ritual, invite the forces and nature beings and ask for a successful Medicine Walk. Then we practice in mindful walking, we open all our senses, connect with Mother Earth and our True BEING. At chosen power locations, each participant lays a medicine wheel or is found by a tree, FLOWERING TREE CEREMONY for his personal vision quest. Then we share our experiences in the group, but you keep something for yourself, ground us with food and go back to the cars in SILENCE. The entire Canary Island of La Palma is a biosphere reserve.

Personal Training Yoga Retreat & Burn Out Treatment – March 2019

I was really more than ready for vacation and had first booked a yoga retreat. On the spot Annette took a lot of time for me and put together a personal yoga program for me and my situation.
Surprisingly efektiv I felt the 3 body coaching sessions. Not only that I felt pleasantly relaxed and energetic after the bodywork. With the discussions and the inner image work she led me directly to the causes of my emotional disbalance. I will come back for sure and then I will book in time, so that I can stay in the beautiful Casa Saraswati.
Best regards Kathrin from Berlin

Lomi Lomi Retreat – January 2019

I had a fantastic retreat with Lomi Lomi massages. It was really a gift. I had a deep and quiet sleep after the first lomi massage. And also the pain in my shoulder is less than before. After the 3rd session my frontal sinuses became free too.

Thanks a lot.
You will hear from me again

Bodycoaching retreat with crystal healing – january 2019

I myself am a trauma therapist and psychotherapist and wanted to book a massage retreat first, then became curious about the body coaching and then took the version with the crystal healing of 2 hours. All previously booked by phone, for the Casa Saraswati I was too late.

As Annette asked me at the beginning „How can I make you happy?“ I thought that was grossly exaggerated. BUT how else to describe the feeling when one is satisfied with what is and feels fulfilled. I understand the contextof my emotions now, have found new courage to live my strength. NOW and not later. And I do not stress myself. Overall, this body psychotherapy was just right for me and surprisingly effective. “

Saraswati – Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Healing mit Kristall-Healing – Dezember 2018

Lutz and Annette were excellent hosts, we felt very welcomed and enjoyed our stay very much. We can only recommend this wonderful retreat with Lomi Lomi Massages & Balinese Massage, its a very quiet and peaceful place. We felt completely recycled afterwards.

Thank You , Christina & Valentina

Hiking right from the house – Perfect hosts – November 2018

We had a nice week at Casa Saraswati ! The house and the associated garden are gorgeous, you even have a view of the sea from the bed! From the beautiful terrace you can watch great sunsets. It is actually very quiet there and it is advisable to have a rental car to get to the house. You can start from there some beautiful hiking trails and Lutz is in this regard with good advice aside. We can recommend the accommodation in any case!

Tasty Little Vacation Loft – International Yoga Day – June 2018

We felt very comfortable in the 2 weeks of our stay. Fortunately, we were invited to the International Yoga Day.

The house is very clean and tastefully decorated with lots of wood. It is actually a great climate house, always pleasantly tempered and nice and cool in the bedroom at night, so you sleep well in the raised, spacious sleeping niche. We had great sea views and sunsets. In the mornings you can enjoy breakfast, possibly with a sweater, because depending on the weather a cool wind can blow. If you like it warm and windless, take a seat in the small Buddha garden, where the many stones store the warm sunshine during the day. 2 sun loungers complete the sunbathing area.

we love it , Martina & Thorsten

Saraswati & Body Coaching / Yoga for Couples – May 2018

We had already got to know and love the healing hands of Annette during many of our La Palma vacations.

As a result, I convinced my husband and we returned to Casa Saraswati in May 2018 to do an individual yoga class for two. Annette has really responded to our needs individually and now we are practicing yoga together again at home, with growing enthusiasm. It was as always very relaxing – even though we are going through a challenging time – again I can only say thank you – for the enlightening conversations and the conscious yoga.

Casa Saraswati & Yoga und Massagen Mai 2016 / 2017 / 2018

The yoga classes were great and also the massages, Annette Harnisch has golden hands. At Casa Saraswati we felt right at home, so creative and tastefully decorated and this beautiful garden. As you can see, we have become regular customers. There you can leave the stress of everyday life behind.

Saraswati – Yoga in der Minigruppe – April 2018

Beautiful, cozy apartment with Buddha garden and sea view, very quiet and super equipped 🙂 I enjoyed attending a yoga mini group, it was in English. And really an enrichment for my yoga practice – many things were really new to me, even though I’ve practiced yoga for a while. My friend had enough space on the wooden deck for his Ninyuzu exercises.

Perfect Vacation with Body Coaching Sessions – January 2018

We had a perfect holiday! The location of the house is great, super quiet and central (by car, but also the first four days on foot it went well), the garden is very very nice and the house is optimally cut and totally tastefully decorated, we got away from first moment felt at home. The communication with the hosts is clear and friendly and also the offer of the Buddha Casa right next door is highly recommended. The body coaching sessions were very productive for both of us. We will come back for sure. For people (couples) who are looking for time and peace and as a starting point to explore the island, we can hardly imagine anything better!

Greetings Jürgen and Renilda from Hamburg

Ayurveda & Body Coaching / Family Constellation – February 2017

For three years I have been in the Buddhacasa again and again during my vacation. Recently I was the first time to a 2-week Ayurveda cure. An in-depth analysis of the doshas was done using a tongue photo and a questionnaire to prepare the formulas that fit the constitution. In the applications that were done three times a day was always on my needs or wishes. For two weeks I gave myself completely to the applications and the relaxation. Even with yoga classes I could find inner peace. In the end, I came home full of new energy. If, like me, you continue to implement the newly acquired knowledge at home, you can extend the enormous health effect even further. Anyone who wants to do something for his health or needs relaxation is in the right place at Buddhacasa. I can not only recommend the cure, but also the body coaching with the systemic constellations, as well as the body balance massages. I am looking forward, when I am back on La Palma in the Buddhacasa stop by. Greeting Karin

Casa Saraswati & Osteopathy and Massages – January 2015

I think that will be my favorite house on La Palma … two weeks on our favorite island – two weeks of pure peace and relaxation! We have enjoyed the time with you – the fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean, the company of the kittens, the great vegetation – and as we already knew before the Casa Saraswati – we have been enjoying the osteopathy treatments and massages by Annette for 10 years years. Everything great!

Uwe & Karin *****

Saraswati & Bodycoaching Retreat –  April 2014

I knew the excellent work of Annette from other La Palma vacations. In April 2014, I did a body coaching retreat alone with Annette and stayed at Casa Saraswati. Yes, it was wonderful and the body coaching still sounds like …. thank you for all your support and generosity in Buddha Casa. I was in good hands every moment and could feel at home at Casa Saraswati. Nevertheless, I had enough privacy. I do not always know that when traveling.
