Yoga & Hiking Retreat: Lenk (Switzerland), 30 May to 3 June 2021

Arrive. Slow down. Recharge.

It is said that Lenk is the most beautiful valley end in the Alps. For me it’s just my Happy Place. I’ve been coming here for over 30 years, it’s my second home. And I would like to bring you this wonderful place closer. The breathtaking landscape, the nature’s grounding energy and the many sources of water power will surely enchant you too.

The Lenk Lodge is the ideal retreat location, which will be exclusively ours. On the quiet edge of the village – and yet within walking distance of the quaint village center – the Lenk Lodge is surrounded by green space with a view of the striking mountains and rolling hills. The original Simmental house with a lot of old wood has a history of over a hundred years. All rooms are individually furnished in Scandinavian style. The two large sun terraces invite you to linger. Not far from the Lenk Lodge you will find a small but fine wellness oasis and large swimming pool in Wallbach Bad. And at the other end of the village the 5-star option of the Hotel Lenkerhof. Or the gondola sauna for 2 people in the garden of the lodge.

The yoga classes take place in the morning and in the late afternoon. On Tuesday, after the morning yoga practice and breakfast, the day is at your disposal if you want to go on an excursion or just want to treat yourself to a longer break. This retreat is suitable for everyone: experienced and occasional yogis as well as beginners. I teach mindful flow yoga in which the focus is on feeling and where can take your time to perform and internalize the asanas (poses). All lessons are based on Hatha Yoga, whereby I incorporate many different yoga styles, such as Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, but also Pranayama and meditation as well as Chakra Yoga. I also bring therapeutic elements from Slings Myofascial Training© (fascia work).

If you want to treat yourself to a very special treat, I offer some Thai Yoga Massage sessions, where you can completely relax and let yourself go. Dive in and enjoy this extraordinary type of massage that touches body, mind and soul. The Thai Yoga Massage is a mixture of classic massage and passive movements which leaves you into deeply relaxed and blockages can be released.
