Enjoy the snow outdoors and the relaxation indoors. The relaxing asana practice, a sauna visit, healthy and energising food and the peace of the morning and evening meditation lead to all-round well-being.
Asanas unblock vital energy and evenly distribute it throughout the body. The precision of the asana technique increases the benefits for body and mind.
Topics of the asana practice
- Becoming aware of gravity in the relaxation pose
- Observing muscle reactions, improving flexibility
- Better alignment of the spine
- Releasing tension and holding poses with minimal effort
- The meditation pose as the starting point for a new body awareness
- Interaction of body and mind
- Classical meditation paths of yoga
- The Self, Karma and reincarnation
- Attention, concentration and meditation
- Meditation with and without form
- Bhakti – the sublimation of emotions
Depending on the weather, daily winter walks and the option to go cross-country skiing independently nearby.
The trails begin just 5 minutes’ walking distance away from the Retreat House. Rental gear available in Reith village (at extra cost).
