Recharge Retreat - Laax, Switzerland
12-17 August 2013
A luxury yoga retreat in one of the world's best hotels. Schloss Elmau is famous for it's diverse cultural program and beautiful location in the Bavarian Alps.
One of the central teachings of yoga is that at our very core, the essence of our being is bliss. So why is it that we do not spend every waking moment of our lives experiencing ourselves as blissful, happy beings of utter contentment?The yoga tradition offers us several explanations and describes the many coverings, sheaths and veilings that can prevent us from knowing our True nature. Yoga provides a system of practical methods which allow us to explore and re-connect to the person we really are.During this retreat we will enjoy yoga practice as a means of experiencing the Self, supported by a range of philosophical ideas which uplift the heart and re-establish the joy of simply being who we are.
What is the secret to renewable energy? Is there a such thing as a Fountain of Youth? We highly doubt there is, but we know there is a Mountain of Youth.
Situated within the infrastructure of the rocksresort in Laax, a car-free facility in Laax, Graubünden deep in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Pure mountain air, endless sky and the sound of nature infuse you with new energy for your body, mind and heart.
