Retreat to the beautiful Wild Emperor Mountains of Austria….how would you like to take a replenishing and refreshing break during late summer? Nicky Thomas is hosting a 5-day yoga, qi gong, meditation and walking retreat in spectacular alpine surroundings.
Included within this retreat is:
*Accommodation in an all-inclusive 4 star hotel
*Daily yoga and meditation
*Late afternoon/early evening qi gong against the backdrop of the Wilder Kaiser mountains
*A healthy and nutritious international cuisine, including breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and evening meal with unlimited fresh mineral water.

The cost of the retreat is £745 per person for a room with two people sharing, or £845 for a single room. Flights are not included in this price. I will be arranging a group booking on flights/transfer to and from the hotel for those who are interested. Although you are welcome to make your own way there. The closest airports are Munich and Salzburg, which are both just over an hours drive from the village of Scheffau, where the hotel is situated. Airport transfer can easily be arranged.
Every morning, before breakfast, there will be a morning hatha yoga and meditation class where we will start off the day with a nourishing and revitalizing session to help you feel good in your body and mind. Classes will be accessible to everyone: complete beginners, those who haven’t practiced for a while, or more experienced students who would like a little more challenge. You will experience seated, standing and lying postures with simple breathing techniques, meditation and guided relaxations.
After breakfast there will be the option to enjoy a variety of guided peaceful walks in nature, spending time relaxing in or around the hotel and using the wellness suite, exploring the local village and surroundings or just soaking up the fresh air and beauty of alpine life.
Every afternoon, before dinner, you will have the option to practice qi gong in the tranquil outdoor setting of the hotel. I will introduce you to the basic concepts underpinning Qi gong and help you to discover the many health benefits of this practice. We will practice a series of gentle, yet at the same time strengthening, slow flowing movements, as well as learning some of the philosophical ideas informing this deeply relaxing moving meditation. We will move, breathe and deeply relax to the serene backdrop of the Alps, to improve energy and allow the mind to become still and calm.
Places are limited so please let me know if you would like more information as soon as possible.
