IN THE MORNING: Start the day in contemplative silence during the morning meditation, enjoy the group chanting and spiritual reading. Twice a week and weather-permitting, the meditation takes place as a silent walk. This is followed by the first asana session with invigorating exercises on the open-air platform. 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.

Lifestyle support

Individual coaching

After a few days of your stay, you might notice some seeming contradictions. On the one hand, you are enjoying the benefts of the yoga exercises in the form of relaxation, more energy and mental resilience. On the other, the yoga daily schedule is very different from your normal daily habits. You might ask yourself whether yoga is right for you, or whether you are suited to yoga, and if you are the only one feeling this way.

This conflict is very normal. In a talk with one of the senior instructors, you can work out what is the best way to adapt the yoga practice to your routine, or which habits you might want to change a little. Please do not hesitate to speak with us.

Individual coaching
We offer 30-minute one-on-one sessions with an experienced senior instructor. Some personal advice and tips are often enough to bring about substantial progress in the group practice at the Retreat House and in your own practice at home.

  • Sun Salutation
  • Inverted poses
  • Asanas in depth
  • Breathing
  • Dietary advice
  • Meditation coaching
