Rediscover your equilibrium - unwind, energize, and balance. Breathe in deeply the fresh mountain air. Discover a deep, cleansing and relaxing experience at this intimate retreat in Slovakia. This natural and historical region is yours to explore - stunning landscapes, beautiful little villages, the infinite bounty of the food, energy, and love that is found at one of Slovakia's most precious hidden gems. Treat yourself to an abundant you. You will be taught essential asanas, pranayamas, and meditations to increase your focus, strength, flexibility, and overall vitality.
Where are we going:
This year for a change, I will take you to a unique location in Štrbské Pleso. We will stay in FIS bungalows which are located in the centre of a hotel-sports complex in High Tatras. Only a few steps from the hotel, right under the majestic peaks of Mt. Solisko and Mt. Patria, they offer simple accommodation for active relaxation at the altitude of 1,346 metres. This place is ideal for lovers of silence, peace and beautiful nature of the Tatras.
Together with visiting cultural attractions and historical monuments, we will taste the typical Slovak food and drinks. In Koliba Restaurant we will have a variety of delicious traditional food. Slovak food is hearty, typical of a country with strong rural roots. It is heavy on meat (especially pork), potatoes, domplings, thick sauces and cheeses. If you are looking for vegetables, there is always cabbage, often in a form of sauerkraut. Salads are not traditional, but we will find them in our menus. You should try delicious soup or meat or cheese starters. Lunch is traditionally the largest meal of the day, with dinner on the light side.
What about Tai Chi and Yoga?
We will come here to take in a deep breath and rest and I will ensure that you will experience the real relaxation and rejuvenation for your body, mind, and soul during this week. Whether you are new to yoga or a well-established practitioner, this retreat will help you quickly find your way back to balance in an optimal environment for spiritual growth, healing, and relaxation. Come to retreat to escape from the stresses and distractions of everyday life and discover a healthier, happier you.
We will practice tai chi and yoga daily. We will pracice all the forms and you will have a variety of yoga. We will look at the postures in more detail. We will also have meditation classes. There will be around 25 classes during this week (the timetable will be available to those of you who are coming).
