A weekend of relaxation for body and mind
This seminar offers you relaxation, loosening up and renewal on many levels.
We will practice meditation under the guidance of Lama Thierry. We gently direct our attention to the movement of our breath and our body awareness, allowing for the busyness of our mind to settle down.
Additionally, we will do several sessions of yoga-inspired physical exercises, instructed by the experienced yoga and bodywork teacher Cecilia Pla. We learn how to work with our body so that it becomes softer, stronger and more comfortable. The ease of the body will also contribute to make the mind more calm and balanced.
We will begin the seminar on Friday at 16:00 and will finish on sunday after lunch.
Sitting meditation and moving exercises will be alternated and they will be suitable for every body type.
Please bring your own yoga mat and, if possible, a yoga belt and a block.

Lama Thierry is a Swiss “Yogi” who, after twelve years as a Buddhist monk - including six years in retreat - now helps and teaches at our center.
He teaches from his own experience, finds vivid examples from everyday life, which we can easily relate to, and he shares his extensive knowledge of the Tibetan scripture.
He is an avid reader, film and music expert with a sense of humor and a great teacher with infinite devotion to the Dharma.
Cecilia Pla is a certified Kaladana Yoga teacher and Anusara-inspired yoga teacher and holds a Bachelor degree in Dance Performance from the Argentine University of Arts (UNA).
For over 12 years, Cecilia has been teaching around the world and training yoga teachers. In particular, she specializes in the anatomically correct and healing execution of asanas, yoga positions. Ceci, as she is affectionately known, also completed the Tibetan Translation Program and is about to graduate from the Bachelor in Buddhist Studies at Rangjung Yeshe Institute (Nepal). Since 2020, she settled in Austria and is very happy to support Gomde’s activities and flourishment.
This seminar will be held under consideration of all required hygiene measures. Nevertheless, the feeling of being among Dharma friends and in beautiful surroundings should of course not be missing. Due to the restrictions there will only be a limited number of participants.
Once you arrive, the Gomde team will inform you about the hygiene measures that you should follow in and outside the house. Don't worry - if we all help together, this seminar will work out well.
