Yoga on the Stubai Glacier

04/04/2013

Doing yoga can help you to harmonize body and mind, to recharge your batteries, to find yourself again and to create quiet, clarity and level-headedness. A mountain tour that offers new views and distance from everyday worries can have a similar meditative effect. And if we combine these two things?

In summer 2013 you can experience the “fascination yoga at 3,212 meters” for the 4rd time on the Stubai Glacier in Tyrol. As soon as the last and persistent skiers say goodbye, the “Asanas” – yoga body positions, meditation and relaxation will be center of attention. After all nobody says that we can use a glacier only for skiing or enjoy the breathtaking panorama just as winter sportsman.

From 25th till 28th July 2013 national and international yogis lead workshops for people interested in yoga on different enchanting places in Stubai. In addition to classic effort and relaxation exercises the program includes also pleasant walks, fantasy trips, breathing exercise and meditations:

  • Thursday, 25th July: hike to the Grawa waterfall and yoga experiences near the water
  • Friday, 26th July: ascent to Mt. Schaufelspitze with the cable car and yoga unit on the viewpoint TOP OF TYROL at 3,210 meters above sea level – with the renowned yoga instructress Andrea Ostheimer and a fantastic panorama of the glacier world
  • Saturday, 27th July: yoga course on the panoramic terrace of the hiking area Schlick 2000 near Fulpmes, embedded in a splendid mountain landscape
  • Sunday, 28th July: yoga again at a dizzy height, next to the lift facilities of Neustift and Mieders in Stubai
