AcroYoga Summer Retreat

This is our summer weekend long residential retreat. We have a wonderful house surrounded by nature and a beautiful training hall. You can choose between different accommodation options ranging from a private room to a shared dorm. We want to offer you a wonderful movement experience that combines holiday and training.

From 07 to 10 July 2022

About this Retreat

During this weekend we will offer plenty of workshops, giving you the opportunity to discover the practice of AcroYoga and related disciplines like Handstands, Contact Games, Partner Exercises and Thai Massage. Our experienced teachers team is here to create a safe environment where playful and sustainable learning can flourish.

This is an all levels retreat, suitable for total beginners as well as AcroYogis who recently started or want to refresh their skills. We will be running two levels (beginner & intermediate) simultaneously which will give you the freedom to choose what you would like to learn.

Location

We have selected a wonderful historic holiday home which is located at the foot of the Alpstein and is surrounded by a private forest and a huge meadow. Overlooking green hills, we will be training in a spacious training hall which is completely covered with tatami mats. In addition to the training facilities and nature, the house offers a chill out room with table tennis, mini-foot and other games. For the whole retreat we will have the house to ourselves.

Schedule

The retreat will be from Thursday 2pm to Sunday 1pm. In the mornings we dedicate ourselves to the practice of AcroYoga, learning exciting postures, flows and inversions. The afternoons are about playtime, group activities and being in nature. After a full day of movement we will round off the day by focusing on relaxing elements like Massage or Yin Yoga.

Activities

We will have a photographer on site who will capture your most glorious moments. This will be most likely during one of the afternoons where we go for a hike or spend time at the nearby lake or river. We also hired a private sauna for the retreat, wheere you can relax your body after a long day of training.

Food

Three times a day we will have delicious vegan & vegetarian meals to recharge your batteries. There will be plenty of vegetables, plant-based protein like nuts and beans and lovingly prepared desserts to round off the menu. We will have our own local chefs from the area cooking for us.
