STRENGTHENING AND RELAXATION YOGA IN TATRA MOUNTAINS

 WEEKEND  YOGA AND AYURVEDA RETREAT IN KOŚCIELISKO

October 19-21

Treat yourself to this time off with profound relaxation and the strengthening  practice of Yoga, meditation by the fireplace, fragrant and terapeytic Ayurvedic massage sessions, and delicious meals.

Time for walks or bikes in the valleys along mountain streams or on trails with panoramic views on the Tatras, for therapeutic bathing in hot springs.

Autum and beginning of winter is the Ayurvedic season for Vata (a combination of air and ether). The air temperature falls, there are a lot of changes in the air: wind and cold. If we can recognize and respond to these environmental changes, we will be able to maintain a functional homeostasis, an ideal equilibrium of the doshas within our bodies. We need to adjust our food regimen: warm, freshly prepared meals with warming spices. Meals need to be served at regular times and in a nice, peaceful atmosphere. During this time, balancig yoga asanas, deep relaxation, and meditation support physiological and psychological health.

Fresh air, beautiful surroundings, salt baths, properly selected meals, and of course herbal ginger tea will be the perfect accompaniment to our practice of Yoga and therapeutic massage sessions leading to overall strengthening and stimulation of inner balance. In Chochołów, about 10-minute drive from our house, are “Chochołowskie Termy”- Chochołów Thermals, a complex of 11 pools with hot spring water, mineral pools, salt caves and saunas. This is an additional attraction for all those interested.

We invite both beginners and those who wish to deepen their practice of Yoga to join us. We will be a small group of people wiling to relax and rest. Please do not use cellular phones in group gatherings such as meals, gatherings by the fire, and yoga sessons, or during your massage.
