Yoga retreats are a nice time to reset, renew and grow. You’ll make new friends, see new places, have the time and space to relax and be with yourself. Break away from your everyday and join this Soul & Steady & YogaKula retreat, taught by Kate Kuss, and experience the moment in the beautiful environment of the retreat die Lichtung, in the Austrian Waldviertel.

In November 2023 we want to take you on a four-day get away from the city and towards yourself! Enjoy yoga, meditation, nature and healthy meals and wind down from the day to day stress.

You might now Kate Kuss from her weekly online classes at YogaKula? She lives in New York and loves traveling to Vienna to teach at the studio in person. Kate has experienced how a dedicated yoga and meditation practice leads to a healthier lifestyle. Her true love is sharing how we can take care of ourselves from the inside out.With over 1,700 hours of yoga teacher training, 700 hours of meditation training and teaching both students and teachers for 12 years, Kate passes downyogic tools that can be practiced both on and off the mat.

During the retreat you will be able to join daily yoga classes in the morning and in the evening. The classes will be active and passive, meaning that there will be some yoga classes that are physically more challenging, and some where you will be able to just wind down and relax.

In between the classes you have the option to take walks in nature with the group or do something on your own. All meals will be available at the accommodation and will consist of clean meals, that will make you happy from the inside out.

Soul & Steady Yoga: Kate has developed her Soul & Steady yoga style, merging Yin, power flow and meditation all in one place. 50 minutes power flow, 20 minutes yin yoga, 5 minutes of meditation. Build strength in your body. Focus your mind. Connect with your spirit.

Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga holds poses for an extended length of time which gives you a chance to stretch the body and listen to the mind. This style of yoga exercises connective tissue and fascia.

Meditation: The meditations taught are guided towards relaxation and introspection. We teach seated meditations and Yoga Nidra that take you through visualizations to boost creativity, breath work to balance energy and deep relaxation so you can release tension.

About the location:
Die Lichtung, Seminarhaus

Embedded in a spacious area, protected by a castle from the 12th century, you can focus on yourself here. Our seminar house is exclusively available to you, delicious vegetarian dishes await you in the forest house and the baroque Meierhof with its 30 beds offers relaxation in the middle of nature.
