In the busy modern lifestyle, many people face the difficulty that even if they do something enjoyable, their mind still stays busy and can’t relax. They might be surrounded by beautiful scenery or by people they love, however, the mind keeps running to the past or the future, and it doesn't stay in the present moment.
Are you asking yourself, how to be fully present while being surrounded by nature and its beauty?
Join us for a yoga hike. Hiking and yoga are two complementary activities that can help you boost your mood, lower stress levels, and improve physical fitness. Putting these two together makes quite a powerful combination. Yoga practice refines the mind and creates awareness, so we can enjoy visiting the mountains by fully “being there” - both physically and mentally.
Yoga helps to increase mental alertness, improve your overall health, and also stretch and tone those stressed muscles. Very much needed after a long hike!
How to prepare and what to expect?
No previous yoga experience is required. Yoga classes on the hike will be open to all levels. Already experienced yoga practitioners are welcome to join as well, to feel the benefits of yoga practice in nature. Please bring your own yoga mat.
We will be offering one or two yoga sessions a day (morning and evening), led by a professional yoga instructor. Yoga classes will be mainly focused on hatha yoga - consisting of asana (postures) practice, as well as pranayama (breathing), concentration, meditation and relaxation. We will also offer a glimpse of other stress relief and mindfulness techniques, such as walking meditation, mindful eating or gratitude practice.
