Afterwards breakfast awaits you.
DURING THE DAY you have the possibility to participate in a workshop, or talk with one of the yoga teachers. If you like, you can swim in one of the nearby mineral-rich waters, Giehringer Pond (2 km) or Schwarzsee Lake (3 km). There are also regular guided hikes of about two hours to the most beautiful corners of the region.
IN THE AFTERNOON your body finds its optimum ﬂexibility in the second yoga class. Observe how the breath is slowing down, and the mind tunes in to the lightness of the yoga practice. Afterwards dinner is already prepared.
IN THE EVENING: Come to the evening meditation and enjoy the group meditation, chanting and interesting talk. Weather-permitting the meditation will take place on a mountain meadow as part of a walk. Go to bed feeling fulflled, inspired and ready to have a restful night’s sleep.
