Regular Activities

 

Yoga on a donation basis 

According to our guiding mission "Mindful living" we offer regular activities, which build inner resources. It is important to us that all people – no matter in which financial circumstances they are – have the opportunity to use these activities for themselves. On a donation basis means that everyone pays what they think is appropriate for the lesson and what they are financially capable of.

It doesn't matter how old or young you are, how big or how heavy your weight is. Your yoga practice is as unique as you are.

Every Tuesday evening 19.00 – 20.30

RIPA AWARENESS MEDITATION

«Training to live well with anyone
means training to live well with any aspect of your mind»
Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche

“Ripa Awareness Meditation” is a simple and effective method that helps stabilize the mind, using the Shamatha technique or calm-abiding meditation; once the mind has settled, the application of Vipassana meditation tools allows the practitioner to gain access to more subtle aspects of his mind, thus allowing him a true exploration of the nature of phenomena and reality.

The method was conceived by the master of Tibetan Buddhism, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche to benefit his students around the world.

Beginners: RAM-Shamata

The practice of Shamata meditation aims at familiarizing participants with the meditation technique of Shamata, or calm-abiding meditation, a traditional Buddhist method that uses the breath as a support to calm the mind. 

The practice of this type of meditation results in a more calm, focused, and stable mind.

It is an ideal practice for those wishing to discover meditation for the first time.

Coaching with horses

10_www.mixagegallery.com_170813_Anja&Nils.jpg

In horse-supported coaching, we work with horses as mirrors of ourselves. Since horses communicate exclusively through body language and instinct, they can see immediately through our intentions and feelings and are able to give totally honest and non-judgmental feedback. 

We reveal unconscious patterns of thought and blockages and promote direct access to ourselves and our emotions.

Thus, this type of coaching can help you if you:

- want to know who you are.

- want to know what is preventing you from developing your true personality.

- want to understand how authenticity can change your life

- want to finally live up to your full potential.

- want to improve the relationship with yourself and others

- want to experience unconditional love

Price: 100 CHF/h

Anja Bovisi is a federal horse expert and trained as an equestrian trainer at the Franziska Müller Academy. She enriches her training in the field of personal development and equestrian coaching with regular internships and training.
