    Jenny Weibull -
    Yoga Teacher, Hatha Yoga, Meditative Yoga and Yin Yoga

    For me, yoga is a key for freeing myself from unpleasant thoughts and emotions. Given all the challenges we face every day, it is very calming when we find something that helps us keep our inner balance and create new energy. In my yoga classes, I pay close attention to the participants and sense which way the class should develop. Each guest should be able to be wholly their true self in order to get in touch with themself. 

    In the morning we begin with Pranayama and a brief meditation. These flow into a powerful and balanced practice. We open our hearts, shoulders and hips for a truly pleasant and open body sensation. In the evening we practice gentle Yin Yoga, stimulating our fascias and the energy flow to let the day end in peace and tranquillity. Our mantra is "Time to be".

    Matthias Brun -
    Yoga & meditation instructor, mindfulness, owner of AWARE YOGA

    I teach a holistic yoga and meditation with a lot of humour and understanding in workshops, retreats and further education and work with these methods for an optimal attitude towards life. The focus of my lessons is on a healthy and liberating yoga and meditation practice that can also be used day to day. Every person and every body/spirit is collected with tenderness, wherever it happens to be.

    You can expect a wonderful mix of gentle, energising Vinyasa Yoga and deeply nourishing, relaxing Yin Yoga. Various meditation sequences are also offered. The topics of mindfulness and joy are not only practised on the mat and meditation pillows, but are present throughout the Retreat and beyond.

    Mona Abter -
    Yoga teacher and trainer, Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga

    Fascinated by the healing and transformative power of yoga, my teaching style is characterized by creativity, clarity, great passion and a lot of heart and soul. Yoga can be easily integrated into everyday life, for me simply a wonderful way of life. I recognise the uniqueness in every person and adapt the Yoga to the student. Variations and modifications of the yoga practice are therefore a matter of course.

    The morning practice is more about dynamism and movement, and in the afternoon we dive into the deep opening and meditative stillness of Yin Yoga. The gentle way to the inner center. Time to let go, reflect and just be. Through the deep stimulation of the fascia tissue, tensions may be released, not only on the physical level.

    Rebecca Jenny -
    Meditation and yoga teacher, energetic therapy

    Many years before I trained as a yoga teacher, I came to know meditation as a tool and my personal key to happiness, which I have been enthusiastically sharing in group, corporate and individual sessions for almost 20 years now. Numerous extensive travels and study in different traditions have led me to acquire a style of teaching that is easily accessible to the West.

    The Hatha Yoga taught is meditative and very slow. This time out is an excellent introduction to both yoga and meditation practice. The meditation and gentle yoga can help you to arrive at yourself and rest.

I teach with joy from the heart, providing flowing and playful lessons, always focused on sharing some lightness and happiness with my companion.

    The morning starts with powerful, dynamic flows, accompanied by breathing exercises and brief meditations. In the evening there is a mix of playful, relaxing Asanas to help close the day effortlessly and softly.

    Soulful Summer Retreat: The abundance within you. August is the month of holidays, abundance and rest before the harvest for the coming year. It is a time of plenty, well suited to celebrating life and – above all – thanking Mother Earth for all that she gives us. It is an ideal time for immersing ourselves in our beings, embodying love and sensing our heart’s desires.

The mornings are dedicated to active, flowing Yoga, beginning with a meditation in the silence. The hours of the evening are reviving, relaxing, mystical and reflective, accompanying us to the depths of our beings and of life. The greatest gift you can give yourself is the time to recognise and embody what you really are – an incredible being.

    Nadia Delacompaz - 
    Yoga and dance teacher

    For me, Yoga means balance. Conscious, holistic practice creates an active yet relaxing counterbalance to a dynamic everyday, office job or hard workout. Our Yoga lessons provide you with the unique combination of energy and relaxation.

    Your energy, relaxation and balance are central for four days. Experience tranquillity, moments of tension and moments of release with diverse Vinyasa Flows, conscious breathing sequences and relaxing mindfulness exercises. You are activated with a powerful lesson at the start of the day, while gentle sessions in the evening promote calmness. Throughout I provide tips and inputs for morning routines as well as reflections for reaching your goals, finding your personal balance and increasing your sense of well-being.

    Jacqueline Heinzmann -
    Yoga instructor for Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, fascias

    Yoga, mindfulness, meditation and health – these topics have been with me my whole life. As a trained shiatsu therapist, teacher and yoga instructor, the person and their well-being concern me greatly. In my yoga classes, I place great value on being able to respond to the needs of different people. I want to share how to use yoga to relearn who you are.

    During this yoga weekend, we will explore dynamic Vinyasa Flow Yoga as well as Yin Yoga. We begin the mornings with meditation accompanied by the sounds of the mountainside, Pranayama and activating Vinyasa Flow Yoga. Elements of fascia therapy are essential here for relieving tension and blockages. In the later afternoon we practice slow, deep, restful Yin Yoga. Let me invite you on a fantastic journey of yoga and being together.

    Martha Bartel -
    Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga Teacher

    I am a trained translator, nurse, Sivananda Yoga teacher and certified yoga teacher of the Swiss Yoga University. An important focus of my teaching is health, in order to promote your resources and to pick you up where you are at the moment. Yoga and meditation have been with me for about 20 years.

    On this extended weekend I offer meditations, breathing exercises and yoga postures for digestion, detoxification and releasing deep core tensions. The morning practice is derived from Hatha yoga, simultaneously strengthening and meditative combined with gentle flowing movements. So that you can really get into your inner and outer yoga flow. In the afternoon practice we dive even deeper into perception with additional yin yoga exercises in lying and sitting, holding these for longer periods of time.

Yoga

The word «Yoga» roughly translates to uniting body and soul through deep concentration and becoming one with one's self. A session includes bodily movements, breathing techniques, concentration exercises and meditation. The goal is to improve vitality, and at the same time strive towards a posture of inner peace.

Hatha Yoga

The origins of Hatha Yoga can be traced back to the middle ages (to the 15th century AD) in India. It was formed from the philosophical and religious currents of so-called Tantrism. Hatha Yoga means «yoga of strength» and is based on the idea of strengthening the body in order to receive the power of awakened consciousness. Physical exercises, breathing and meditation are employed to bring body and mind into harmony. The methods and practices of Hatha Yoga form the foundation for the majority of modern yoga types.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a mix of dynamic and powerful movements, correct alignment, and individually tailored poses (variants). Each breath flows in sync and in rhythm with the body, such that the entire human organism is in flow. Whether the tempo of a Vinyasa class is slow or more rapid, if it includes meditation or singing, is dependant upon the instructor. If you like to get loose and move creatively, then Vinyasa Flow Yoga is likely right for you.

Yin and Yang Yoga

During Yin and Yang Yoga, we learn to balance our body and soul. Yang stands for principles of being active and movement. Using dynamic yoga and sun salutations, we activate our entire circulatory systems and strengthen our muscles, joints and ligaments. Yin stands for dedication and peace. In Yin Yoga, we hold poses for longer and work more deeply in the body’s layers, the fascia. This is a deeply intimate and meditative form of yoga connected with the activation of energy flow along the meridians.

Meditation

Meditation is wonderfully suited to helping us counteract the hectic effects of time. We can find strength in peaceful moments to help us better confront the challenges of everyday life with a smile. Meditation exercises help us to calm our spirits and to collect ourselves.
