Open since December 2012. The hotel is located in walking distance to the peaceful center of Vals.
The hotel is built almost entirely of wood, stone and glass. In order to ensure a short building phase, and thus cause as little disturbance as possible to the special atmosphere of this location, the building was preconstructed and built to sustainable standards.
Great importance is laid on sustainability, such as the kitchen using
mainly regional produce, to support small, local businesses. With these top quality ingredients the cooks prepare healthy, delicous specialities for the guests of Hotel Steinbock.
6.30 – 7a.m. Meditation
7.15 – 8.45a.m. Yoga
from 10a.m. organic, vegan breakfast with a good selection of delicacies and assorted tea.
from 4p.m. your time for yourself. Bring a book, something to write, bring your knitting gear – Hotel Steinbock guarantees a peaceful, calm atmosphere to enjoy the simple things in life.
Nature around Vals is imposing and of course offers a broad variety of outdoor activities. You can rent mountainbikes in the village and don’t forget your trekking boots and nordic walking sticks. We will be happy to tell you about the many special, magical places in the valley.
4.30p.m. – 7p.m. Workshop
(Conscious touching I&II. Conscious moving. Conscious enjoying.)
This yoga week should inspire us to develop a more conscious lifestyle, allow us to experience a sense of community and unity, enabling us to recognise what is really important for us, and help us to learn to heal ourselves by connecting with our own potential.
Beginners as well as experienced practioners are welcome .
1. CONSCIOUS TOUCHING– 2 PARTS:
Elements of classic massage meet the subtle contact of Craniosacral Method and passive stretches of Thai Massage. Giving and receiving, „treating“ and learning how to touch with unconditional loving, with respect and compassion.
2. CONSCIOUS MOVING: we start with a walking meditation. Start to bring an automatic movement up to the surface of our mind. We will look at the foundations and alignment of several yoga positions, to practice a liquid flow through asanas.
3. CONSCIOUS ENJOYING: we taste, we smell, we try. Combine familar ingredients in a creative,new way. Together we prepare dinner, you will get background information on vegan nutrition, we will talk about possibilities to substitue and will share recipies.
By the practice of asanas, as yoga positions are called, we try to get back in touch with the divine unity between matter and prana.
Martina believes a conscious mindful practice, whether active or passive, can set free subtle energy in the body, and bring it into it’s free, original liquid flow.
In her lessons she shares her own experiences, on and off the mat, in an authentic, open way. Inspired by daily, urban life and her travels, she wants to encourage you to test and extend your own borders and explore this supreme power which we all have in us, which makes us feel alive.
During the week of workshops Martina will show you the tools needed to put this into daily use. Practice being mindful in the yoga sessions and learn to trust your natural intuition.
The basis for good health and the key to holistic wellbeing is our nutrition. During this yoga week we focus on consuming seasonal, regional, fresh products. We will stay away from processed goods and instead enjoy delicous, vegan dishes, prepared with love and passion. See this as a chance, don’t think of it as giving up soemthing, use this week to detox your organism, revitalize yourself and get inspired in the conscious enjoying workshop. See how easy it is to transfer this philosopy, these ideas and recipes to your home cuisine.
The treatments by Angelina Schmid will be adapted to your very personal needs. She is looking forward to make you feel enjoyably relaxed.
