    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.

    Rebecca Jenny -
    Meditation & Yoga Instructor, Energetic Therapy

    Many years before I trained as a yoga instructor, 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 now for almost 20 years. Extensive travel and studies in different traditions led me to adopt a style of teaching that was easily accessible in the West.

    I teach Hatha Yoga, which is meditative and very slow. This break 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.

    Jenny Weibull -
    Instructor for Asthanga Yoga & Meditative 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. To let go of the old and create new inner strength.

    We begin with a dynamic, energetically activated and balanced technique and open our hearts, shoulders and hips for a wonderfully agreeable and open body awareness. In the evenings we practice mild Hatha and Yin to close the day with peace and composure. Our mantra is “Time to be”.

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

    I provide comprehensive yoga and meditation instruction with plenty of humour and understanding during workshops, retreats and continuing education programmes, using various methods for an optimal attitude to life. The focus of my lessons is thus on a healthy yoga practice designed for use every day by every person and every body in every location.

    In this Retreat, we will delve into the magical world of body and mind. In addition to flowing sequences, we will explore methods to improve posture and health during Yang Yoga. Whereas during Yin Yoga we will work on our breathing and physical feelings in order to anchor our consciousnesses in our bodies more thoroughly. This will allow us to remain in the moment and to relax; experience being in action!

    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 recognize in each person their uniqueness and adapt yoga individually to the student. Variations and modifications of the yoga practice are therefore a matter of course.

    This retreat is entirely under the motto Yin & Yang: Everything in balance, the dance between letting go and doing. We combine stillness and movement in a practice of meditation, breathing techniques, mudras and the yoga postures. 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.

    I am fascinated by life, people, connections and nature. I respect and love change and I feel compelled to develop further and open myself up to love. Yoga helps me each and every day.

    You can expect wonderful days of being, with yoga, meditation and moments of reflection and deep relaxation. In the mornings, we will devote ourselves to powerful, purifying Vinyasa Flow sequences with a focus on turns and opening our hearts 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.

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.
