Yoga and Wellness Retreat

7 days (6 nights) living in balance with nature at Felsentor. Recharge in this beautiful place high up on car-free Rigi mountain, surrounded by nature with majestic views of Lake Lucerne and the Alps. We start each day silently with the dawn and tea, just the sound of wind in the pines, then we walk a few steps to the beautiful Zendo for sitting and walking meditation. Our typical day includes twice daily meditation, 90 minutes yoga class, and 90 minutes Thai bodywork class (give & receive), and 3 x daily delicious vegan meals!
One of Felsentor`s treasures is its lush and quiet location. We benefit from this healing and restorative opportunity by keeping silence each day from dawn until lunchtime, and again after dinner. Don`t worry, you can let your hair down in the afternoons because there is ample free time for you to hike, nap, or relax with a book (Felsentor has a wonderful cosy library) and talk with your new friends.
All the rooms at Felsentor are lovely with clean wood floors, comfortable beds, and fine details. The entire place is so clean and polished the building itself seems to glow. In addition to the beautiful lodge and dining hall, there is a lovely outdoor cafe, stunning views, and a gorgeous Zen temple for our group yoga, meditation, and Thai bodywork. Enjoy this week of rejuvenation, an investment in wellness.

Karl Straub
was born the USA, and was introduced to meditation around the age of 10. He is a former competitive swimmer, dolphin communication researcher, and graduate of Duke University. He worked as a school teacher, artist, and IT consultant until his mid-30`s when he was inspired to go deeper into meditation and yoga. He left his IT job in New York City, sold and donated his belongings, set off on an odyssey of 8 years during which he kept no apartment anywhere and traveled just with what he could carry. He studied with wonderful teachers including Zen master Keido Fukushima, the Indian yogi Swami Bua, David Life and Sharon Gannon (co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga), and many others, from whom he learned to express precision, depth, and humor in his own teaching. Karl has taught at festivals, conferences, and studios in over 40 cities and 12 countries. He lives in Switzerland.
