Athayoga for men

Athayoga for men

A yoga workshop for men only? Yes, for a number of reasons. Today, throughout Europe women dominate yoga scene and so many yoga classes are tailored a bit more to women. This workshop addresses men of all ages, even if they have little or no experience in yoga. Some men are active in sports and exercise some are less. This program is for guys that wish to try this for themselves. The classes focus on male physique and psychology. In addition, there is time for fun and interaction as well as learning of the techniques to better handle the pressure to perform and deal with stress at work and in private life. To top it off, the program includes delicious and healthy food prepared by our chef.

Isabella Welsch and  Manfred della Schiava guide the group through a program, with carefully designed athayoga-classes for men on an intermediate level. Athayoga is Isabella’s 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 english and german.
