Description of the retreat


In an ever-changing world, your body has to digest an overflow of experiences – on many different levels- physical, emotional, energetic, spiritual or mental. Thus we armour ourselves as a survival mechanism – it stops our pain. This layer of protection is compromising our body system and blocking the free flow of life force energy.

Join us to experience and learn new tools to release unexpressed emotions, fully own your primordial energy and expand your capacity for pleasure and self-love – held in a loving space in unspoilt nature.



De-Armouring is a holistic healing modality that helps you to release negative thought patterns, unhealthy behaviours, physical tension, and repressed emotions.

We utilise a combination of touch, breath, sound, movement and meditation, through massage, trigger point release, and stretching to open up the body so our life force can flow unobstructed and create the life we want to have.

Blending ancient wisdom and modern science, we will work with all layers of the body – emotional, physical, mental, and energetic – along with our primordial energy to rewire the nervous system and enhance our ability to feel more pleasure.

Sunny’s first big realization of coming into her body and learning a new way to connect with it happened during her first de-armouring workshop.

Before this, Sunny had suffered from chronic pain for more than 20 years and during the workshop she discovered that her pain was actually trauma information, stored in the cells of her body, which she was able to release through de-armouring.

Sunny understood that there’s more to life than being burnt out, feeling numbed-out emotionally, sexually and constantly feeling drained and depleted from her relationships.

De-armouring and the related practices gave her an entirely new insight into her own healing and the healing of others. The rest is history.

“I was blown away by the workshop, by the content and by the way Sunny facilitated and held the space for the process. I feel she’s very loving and at the same time clear – like a ‘no bullshit‘ approach.”

Sunny became a dedicated ever-learning student of the Healing Arts with many different masters, schools, teachers and lineages all over the world.

Today, Sunny is a passionate expert in body and energy work, breathwork, intimacy and empowerment coaching, tantra, yoga, meditation and sound healing.

She gives individual sessions and workshops in her private practice and is facilitating retreats, trainings and workshops in Europe and Asia. She is currently based in Berlin and Koh Phangan, Thailand.

Sunny also offers training and supervision for professional practitioners of several different modalities.
