RETREAT & DECLINE
In the autumn of 2018 the first YOGAdelight Nature Conference will take place at the B&O Parkhotel in Bad Aibling, Bavaria, Germany. The idyllic surroundings, the ecological concept and the purist, campus-like hotel design create the harmonious surroundings for this unique event that brings together the best of a yoga retreat and a yoga conference. The course content focuses on deepening knowledge and practice around the topics of yoga therapy, yoga asana, yin yoga, meditation, pranayama and yoga philosophy.
We use the unique energy of autumn to enhance the profound exploration of our own being.
The date for the retreat is not a random choice, for there is no better season than the autumn for retreat, deceleration and the essential issues of life. The Nature Conference is therefore intended to be an inward journey that leaves plenty of room to deal with one's own essence – on physical, psychological, mental and emotional levels.
CULTIVATION OF INTERNAL QUALITIES
The performance focus, which has such a strong influence on the modern world of yoga, will deliberately take a back seat at the YOGAdelight Nature Conference so we can cultivate our inner qualities. Asanas - in particular in their restorative and compensatory yin variation – will not be excluded as important yoga practice building blocks, but the holistic focus will be on accompanying the participants on their personal path to inner harmony and self-knowledge, guided by lectures, multiple hours of intensive workshops, philosophical talks, meditation sessions and evenings filled with music.
The carefully selected teacher line-up emphasizes this mission: Anna Trökes, Katchie Ananda, Carlos Pomeda, Doug Keller, Stephen Thomas, Andrea Boni, Christina Lobe, Florian Palzinsky, LuNa Schmidt, Satyaa & Pari, Tanja Seehofer, René Hug, Maren Brand, Yann Kuhlmann and the Smiling Shaman are the personalities who will enrich this event in a variety of ways.
EXPERIENCE INSTEAD OF CONSUMING
Experiencing instead of consuming: participants of the four day Nature Conference program can look forward to a varied program guided by renowned teachers and experts, offering a deep understanding of multiple yoga facets. We appeal to those who show a clear commitment with their participation with a minimum stay of two nights.
At the same time we want to create an atmosphere that leaves enough room for valuable breaks. There will therefore be enough time between class sessions for new knowledge and experiences to be internalized, and for interactions with each other – by taking a walk through the park, during a sauna session or whilst swimming in the heated pool. The cozy lounge invites you to chat over a relaxing cup of tea, and all the food is purely vegetarian and vegan.
