AY Easter Retreat

Please plan your individual arrival and departure on Thursday/Monday
Sign up closes on March 17, 2019
Early Bird Price CHF 395.- until
January 31, 2019
Pack your yoga mat, your bolster and whatever else you need to feel comfy, hop on the train and come with us to lake Constance! We would be more than pleased to have you! You’ve never been to an AY Retreat before? Well, then it’s absolutely the perfect timing to change that! Grab yourself one of our Early-Bird-Spots and experience for yourself what effects the AY Retreat has :-)
The next limb of Patanjalis Yoga Stura lies before us: Pratyahara - contemplation. A very important component off the mat, that we would like you to integrate and understand. Stress reduction: the core topic of all our AY Retreats is the impact of enduring stress on your body, mind and soul, but moreover, how you can make a lasting change through yoga practice, is our core topic. What else is there besides Asana (postures), Pranayama (breath), and Dhyana (Meditation) that lastingly reduces stress and bestows you with energy and deep relaxation at any given time?
ParaYoga Nidra® “PYN” in combination with Asana, Pranayama und Dhyana. For the time being AY is the only Yoga school in Switzerland that is allowed to teach the practices and philosophy of PYN - and we are very proud. We know the deep effects of PYN, for it has been part of our personal practice for more than a decade and you know we love to share the good!
In the previous AY Retreats the restorative practices have always been part of the program. Your feedbacks from May 2018 have clearly shown, what these practices can change just within a couple of days practice. During these days where you are secluded from your full schedule, you can relax systematically and regularly through ParaYoga Nidra®. Feel, sense and experience how your stress level reduces - besides various other qualities, which we will address in these days - and how you relax deeply and profoundly. Over Easter you will learn:
What exactly is ParaYoga Nidra®?
When and how do I use it?
What is the difference between Yoga Nidra and ParaYoga Nidra®?
How does my sleep affect my general health? What role does PYN play in this regard ?
Movement and breath in the form of the known “Morning Practice” at the AY Retreat will not be withheld from you. Through the daily ParaYoga Nidra® practice, joint exercises and meditations your body, mind and soul have time to digest all the new things. Gift yourself with energy, rejuvenation and time for yourself!
We are looking forward to meet newbies, practitioners and well known faces. Everyone is more than welcome to join us :-)
Minor changes to suit your needs are possible.

ParaYoga Nidra® Immersion
Access the state of Yoga through enlightened sleep
Tuesdays & Thursdays
18.00 - 19.00 I 19.15 - 20.15
ParaYoga Nidra® is a truly unique form Yoga Nidra handed to us by our dear Teacher Yogarupa, Rod Stryker, directly from the lineage of the Himalayan Masters. It translates as enlightened sleep (deep relaxation with a slight trace of awareness). It combines the stages of waking - dreaming - deep sleep - transcendence. It makes a huge impact on your wellbeing, body mind an spirit. Love for life, inspiration, relaxation and patience can be one of many positive attributes unfolding with a regular practice. Let yourself be surprised by what else will unfold!
The Thursday class is a Yoga Nidra study of AY and closed for the public.
19.15 - 20.45
At the Studio
What ever you do, extreme sports, hiking or going about your daily life - it's about the how, when & how much that is important!
Yoga and flexibility can meet each other during practice, but it's by far not as important as society makes it out to be. Hence this lesson is especially for the Inflexible men!
It is most certainly for men, who seek lasting contentment, strength and lasting highs - instead of short ones - and want to cultivate these further.
Find YOUR Yoga. True and lasting.
Sunday Morning Glory
10.30 - 12.00
At the Studio
Get up and shine!
Start your Sunday by lighting your fire (Agni) with some Asanas accompanied by guided and suited breathing during practice. We will get you going for sure! Find your inner light and peace during this class. Ending your week relaxed, embracing the coming one with open arms and an open heart, by rounding off your practice with the finishing Meditation....
Start your Sunday with AY :-)
AY Retreat 2020
Stress reduction & relaxation at Lake Constance
May 21 - May 24, 2020
You organise your individual arrival and departure
This AY Retreat focuses on the holistic implementation of Yoga and its philosophy in daily life. We will show you methods and ways, how Yoga can be lived and integrated - off the mat. Moreover we will speak about the inevitable consequences that arise if you permanently ignore your needs.
In a society, where you and every one around you are constantly stressed, overworked and faced with rapidly decreasing social connections - where do you find time to listen to your heart? How can you recognise and fulfill your deep rooted heart wishes? Do you live your dreams? What if Practice alone can not address all these questions? What if the quiet time is missing to immerse in meditation? Yet you are longing for full, deep breaths, deep stillness, time to be able to flow with nature and to feel your needs and unfolding your full potential to live a successful and happy life - then this AY Retreat is exactly for you!
We highly recommend a regular practice of ParaYoga Nidra. It's woven into the program of this Retreat and builds the perfect foundation. Further the reading of "The Four Deisres" by Rod Stryker are a great plus in preparation.
Changes can apply if seen fit by AY. The Practices and Lectures are in German and English.
8.30 Lecture, Q&A and Practice
17.00 Q&A, ParaYoga Nidra, Restorative Practice and Meditation
