Bavarian Alps, Allgäu: Yoga and snowshoeing

2nd – 4th March 2018 – tour confirmed

In the Bavarian Alps, Allgäu yoga and snowshoeing: a winter week-end with a perfect combination of outdoor activities, yoga and tranquillity. On our snowshoe hikes we experience the beautiful landscape of the Allgäu Alps, where everything works at a slower pace, allowing us to find time to enjoy life and recharge our batteries.
Walking with snowshoes is easy to learn for every hiker. After a short period of acclimatisation, it is fun to ascend over untouched white slopes and gently jump down in the snow.

After the morning yoga we will enjoy an organic breakfast and start our hikes. A longer hike on Saturday brings us to the summit of a mountain (e.g. in the area of Hochgrat, depending on the weather). On Sunday we experience the winter silence on a smaller but equally beautiful tour. In the afternoon the yoga session brings us more to the yin side: stretch, relax and feel with all senses.

The family-run Landhaus Kennerknecht is a quietly located organic hotel with a view of the surrounding mountains and the valley of Oberstaufen. A wonderful oasis in the snow-covered mountains. It offers a homey atmosphere, a delicious, healthy cuisine, beautiful large rooms, a Finnish sauna and a big yoga hall with a cozy oven.
Our days start with a vitalizing yoga session: we connect to our body with some pranayama and light asanas. Before we get out into nature we fill our energy depots with a healthy organic breakfast from the buffet.
In the evenings the family from Landhaus Kennerknecht provides us a savory vegetarian three course dinner menu.
We have many hiking trails just outside the door. The unique environment is the perfect setting for our daily yoga practice and the snowshoe hikes.
We will dedicate 2 hours a day to Hatha Yoga and meditation. Chiara and Jürgen are experienced yoga teachers and will guide you on this path. Therefore, yoga is equally suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. The technique and detail of the postures (Asanas) will be discussed in detail. Relaxation exercises and yoga nidra complete our program.

Good health and fitness for 4-5 hours of hiking on hiking trails with proper ascents and descents are a must. The tour on Saturday has approx. 700m of altitude level, on Sunday approx. 400m. Hatha Yoga is suitable for beginners and advanced yogis.
