    Angela Hänni -
    Embodied Flow Yoga Instructor 

    During my yoga sessions I truly emphasise personal responsibility and being curious about one's own body in addition to paying close attention to breathing. I really enjoy instructing and providing guidance, which has lead me to develop my own yoga style - an ‘Embodied Yin-Yang Yoga Flow’.  During the week, we will devote ourselves to gentle, yet powerful yoga practices through various elements of movement and peace. The interplay between tension and relaxation will help us to find our core and better replenish or energy reserves for daily life. In the mornings, we’ll begin with activating body and breathing exercises. In the evenings, we’ll concentrate on Yin Yoga sequences in order to relax the body and increase our overall consciousness. All the while, plenty of beautiful and calming music will be played in the background.

    Rebecca Jenny -
    Meditation & Yoga Instructor Energetic Therapy

    My path to Yoga was first and foremost an exploration of the mind. Many years before I trained as a yoga teacher, I learned meditation as both a tool and my personal key to happiness, which I have been passing on with enthusiasm in group, company and individual sessions for more than 15 years. Many extensive travels and studies in different traditions led me to adopt a style of teaching that was easily accessible in the West. I am passionate about making meditation more easily accessible for people from all walks of life. I teach Hatha Yoga, which is meditative and very slow. This week is a fantastic opportunity to practice either yoga or meditation for the first time. The meditation and the gentle yoga poses at this breathtaking location will help you get in touch with yourself and to find peace.

    Tahnee Shim -
    Vinyasa and  Restorative Yoga Instructor 

    I have been interested in health and the human body my entire life. I completed my first yoga instructional programme in 2016 in Hawaii followed by a private, intense instruction from Alyona Mindlin from New York. Later, I found my teacher Nicki Doane, and completed additional yoga instruction with her in Hawaii. During this retreat, we will begin every day with strengthening, yet slow Vinyasa and we will end each evening with relaxing, meditative Restorative Yoga. In my courses, I emphasise alignment and the foundational development of poses. I encourage paying close attention to the balance between tension and relaxation, breathing and efficacy of poses for the body. During slow, yet powerful Vinyasa, I also like to build in Pranayama exercises, meditation and Yin poses. I often integrate various resources whenever necessary.

    Vinyasa Flow Yoga,  Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Life Coach

    I am fascinated by life, people, connections and nature. I truly respect and love change, and I feel compelled to further develop and open myself up to love. Yoga helps me each and every day.  You can look forward to a wonderful springtime detox weekend with yoga, meditation, as well as moments of reflection and deep relaxation. In the mornings, we will devote ourselves to powerful yet purifying Vinyasa Flow sequences with a focus on turns and opening our hearts in order to support “letting go” and “being open” to new things. The evening hours will be restful and reflective. We will look deep within, where strength, tranquillity and love reign. These intense moments will teach us to be observant, to clarify, to regain our energy and to trust in ourselves and in life.

    Annina Flückiger - 
    Yoga Instructor Vinyasa Yoga Yin Yoga

    Yoga is an opportunity to find myself and at the same time to experience a deep connection with the world. After my studies in Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga, I learned the techniques of flowing and free yoga during 300 hours of instruction with aspects from Embodyed Flow. During this yoga weekend, we will explore dynamic Vinyasa Flow Yoga as well as Yin Yoga. I would like to consciously invite you to immerse yourself in the world of movement meditation, to focus your perception inwards, to listen to the inner processes, and to pay attention to yourself and to be open to love. In the morning, we will begin with powerful and flowing-breath Vinyasa Yoga and in the afternoon we’ll enjoy a slow and deeply moving Yin Yoga session together.

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/Yang Yoga

During Yin & 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.
