Join this retreat as it combines the benefits of a daily yoga practice with a personal development program. Through yoga you become stronger, healthier, and more aligned with your body, mind, and soul. The practice of yoga and meditation also create clarity which often leads to identifying which areas of your life could be improved or transformed. This is exactly where the personal development coaching is relevant and essential, to provide you with an honest and objective reflection as well as provide you with tools and support.
You will be staying at a beautifully renovated hotel in South Tyrol region. The hotel is set on a beautiful plateau at 1400 meters, surrounded by mountains and overlooking the majestic Dolomites. The rooms are simple, comfortable, and tasteful.
Standard rooms are in the main building of the hotel and feature a rather classic decor with lots of natural wood. Superior rooms are in a new part of the hotel and feature lots of aromatic untreated wood, large living space, mountain views, and direct access to the garden. Double, twin, and single occupancy is available.
Please note that double or twin room can only be booked by two guests traveling together or a single traveler as a shared twin. If you have no one to share the room with, the package will be charged at a single room rate.
This retreat is open to all ages and levels of fitness and experience. During this Hatha yoga retreat, you will have an opportunity to experience a variety of approaches to Hatha yoga, from elemental Vinyasa flow to peaceful Hatha with a therapeutic quality. Some of the sessions may include the elements of Yin yoga, myofascial release, pranayama, and meditation.
A part of the programme is yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) meditation which has an extremely restful and restorative effect. All sessions will be adapted to the group and modifications of the poses will be offered to cater for all participants and to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and the individualized attention.
An important part of this retreat is an individually tailored personal development programme. This means that in-between yoga and meditation classes, you will receive two one-on-one personal development sessions during the retreat, as well as a set of personalized assignments.
Your facilitator will develop a plan for your one-on-one work before the retreat based on what is important for you to work on (you will fill out a registration questionnaire prior to the retreat to help us prepare). Whether you are attempting to create a positive change in your work, relationship/-s, health or anything else, during this retreat you will be inspired, motivated, and empowered to not only identify your goals, but also to take action in pursuing them.
