Hatha Yoga at Pentecost with Frank Schmid in the Swiss Alps/Graubuenden

A long weekend of self-discovery and relaxation in «Ascharina» near St. Antoenien with daily yoga practice and meditation session; plus lots of free time, to rest the soul, to hike or to enjoy the sauna or hot tub. A fascinating combination, which fully effects body and mind.

We activate the body and mind each morning by practicing yoga, by doing breathing exercises and meditation, enjoying a healthy brunch afterwards and structuring our free time activities according to our personal needs. The sun terrace, hot tub and the sauna are available exclusively to our group. There is also the possibility to explore nature on your own and start your hikes right in front of the hotel.

This retreat over the Pentecost long weekend is suitable for both beginners and more experienced yogis and yoginis, who enjoy the steady yoga practice and the possibilities to explore the magnificent mountains. Frank teaches in German or English.

Frank Schmid started growing in the Swiss Alps, then Zurich, New York and San Francisco. He lived in Vancouver, Canada, for 10 years. He received his Hatha Yoga teacher training from Ifat Erez in Canada and at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India and he studied Yin Yoga with Paul Grilley. Frank’s daily practice reflects in his classes which he leads with a strong sense for detail, individual safety and fun. For those who take his classes, it is a quiet lesson in self-exploration, opening up body and soul to the accept and work through the practice, which at times mirrors the challenges of life.

The Hatha Yoga Retreat with Frank Schmid will take place from Thursday, June 1, 2017 through Monday, June 5, 2017 at Hotel „Wanna“ in the hamlet of Ascharina near St. Antoenien in Graubuenden.
