AHAM yoga retreat

AHAM - Discover yourself through yoga

 

Yoga retreats provide the ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life and a time to focus on one’s self. To get the most out of yoga, it is best to practice it as close to nature as possible. Hotel Plesnik, in the most serene and peaceful Logar Valley, offers a wonderful 7-day yoga retreat with numerous special and classic sessions for yoga enthusiasts.

 

‘Aham’ means ‘the Self’, and yoga is a way of connecting with our inner selves, which, in turn, allows us to connect with the outer world. Our Aham Yoga Retreat helps you understand the true sense of yoga. Along with practical yoga sessions, we also hold theory classes that cover various topics in brief, thus deepening your insights into yoga. The retreat also features some additional activities, such as a seminar on Ayurveda, an assessment of your body constitution by our Ayurveda specialist, an opportunity to have an Ayurvedic massage, and watching a cookery demonstration with our in-house Ayurvedic chef.

Come and join our Aham retreat to socialise with like-minded people and experience the authentic practice of yoga. Align with your inner-self, broaden your perspectives, and deepen your yoga practice.

Programme

 

Each day will be filled with different yoga experiences.

You will start the day with a 75-minute yoga session, which includes stretching, strengthening and restorative yoga asanas and ends with a relaxation session. Following this active morning session, your body will definitely be in need of an ideal breakfast. An organic breakfast will be served in our restaurant, featuring local products from nearby farms; vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options are also available. This will be followed by either a theory class on particular yoga topics, which makes this AHAM retreat unique, or an analysis of your body constitution and a revitalising Ayurveda massage with our Ayurveda team.

In the afternoon, you can enjoy free time for yourself, which you can choose to either spend in our Alpine Eco Wellness Centre featuring a whirlpool and Finnish, bio and steam saunas, or head outdoors for some active biking or hiking sessions.

The day ends with an evening relaxing and meditative yoga session followed by a delicious dinner.
