Athayoga and holidays on the mediterranean

Athayoga and holidays on the mediterranean

Enjoy the summer sun, beach and the sea and start every day with a yoga-session that nourishes body and mind. After our delicious brunch, you can relax on the fine, sandy beach, do active water-sports, explore roman ruins, stroll through boutiques of the villages nearby, hike through protected pine forests or make yourself comfortable in a hammock in our garden.

The point is that you do what you like and enjoy all the guidance and support we provide. Once a week we offer a walk to the natural beach Waikiki, which is framed by stunning sandstone. This beach can only be reached by foot!

Isabella Welsch guides the group through a program, with carefully designed athayoga classes on an intermediate level. She teaches her own, modern blend of different styles. Many poses allow you to adjust to an easier or more challenging level. We need to know a bit about physical and psychological fitness of a participant: Please let us know ahead if you have any conditions.

Classes are taught in english. Partial translation to german or spanish is possible.
