Immerse yourself in a healing ranch yoga and horsemanship experience high above the clouds of Zug/Zurich, Switzerland!
If you are stressed out, burning the candle from both ends, or just need a break – come and reset your mind, body and soul with yoga, breathwork, meditation and horsemanship.
The unique combination of “equine assisted mindfulness” (mindfulness skills developed through interaction with horses) with target yoga and meditation, specifically designed for stress release, brings balance and harmony to the system. This highly effective one-day retreat takes you away from the daily grind and allows you to recharge your drained batteries on a beautiful horse ranch in the Zug countryside.
Equine assisted mindfulness, or simply horsemanship, is fast becoming recognized as an innovative approach to assist people of all ages in increasing their levels of self-awareness, and in doing so, facilitating improvements in areas such as stress release, self-confidence, boundary setting, teamwork, communication or leadership skills. It works beautifully in combination with yoga and meditation practice, specifically designed to release tension, relax, yet focus so that you can experience harmony and clarity. For thousands of years, the yoga system was taught to help purify the body and mind, so that a practitioner can cleanse karma and awaken the soul. As you travel through our program and achieve more balance and lightness, you will be able to go within, experience your self and the horse will be your gentle guide in this process.
Horse whispering or horsemanship:
Horses have a special, innate sense that allows them to detect our moods and frame of mind. They seem to know when something is wrong or “in the air”, whether it is something positive or impending doom. Without physical contact, they can read and pick up very subtle signals from a human. That is what makes horses so valuable for the rehabilitation of people who suffered physical, emotional or mental stress or damage. Equine-assisted therapy is designed to enhance self-esteem, decrease stress, improve focus and be fun, while discovering and working with a beautiful animal, in nature.

Yoga and Meditation:
Yoga, breathwork, meditation work in conjunction to heal body, mind and soul. Yoga is not limited to contortions on a mat, yoga is a holistic system that works harmoniously to achieve stillness of mind. In this retreat we combine specific rebalancing yoga sets (suitable for beginners to advanced) with breathwork (pranayama), mantras, cleansing techniques and meditation. The yoga sequences include an optimized set of practices, designed to balance, harmonize and relax the mind, body and soul, in order to get a point where meditation, inspired thought and creativity happen.

Yoga / Ayurveda Workshops
Learn to self-heal with Dosha yoga (the yoga right for your type) and Ayurveda (a holistic 5,000 year old Indian natural medicine system). These sister sciences will teach you to self-heal and maintain optimal health, in what probably is the most natural way possible.
We are all different, in Ayurveda, we differentiate between doshas (elements) such as Kapha, Pitta, Vata and gunas (qualities of mind) such as Sattva, Rajas, Tamas. Once we know what elements and qualities “are”, we can target a personal yoga, diet and healing system just for us.
In a private session, I will determine your type and what lifestyle, diet, exercise, regimen would be beneficial. Of course, we will put it all into practice as well, in the same session.
Locale: Faellanden or Finstersee (alternative venues may be arranged)
Please book your individual session, I will contact you to find a convenient date and time.
