Holistic - healthy, vital, full of energy on holidays in Gastein.

The power of nature
with the ALPENHAUS weekly programme

A week of Alpine power and vital energy

Every week, DAS ALPENHAUS Gasteinertal offers a wide range of activities through our POWER.OF.NATURE weekly programme. Yoga, Qigong and our guided MAN.OF.NATURE sessions allow you to take time for yourself, recharge your batteries, and heighten your senses and bodily awareness.

Yoga

Our daily life is full of pressure and strains. Long periods of sitting and chronic lack of exercise lead to tension and muscle weakness. Mental aspects such as stress have a negative impact on both our immune system and our musculoskeletal system. Yoga helps us release physical and mental tension, frees our thoughts, and replenishes energy levels – enabling us to face everyday life head on.

Happiness is free but priceless.

QIGONG

Qigong, the teaching of life-energy cultivation, is a 5,000-year-old holistic healing method with its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Qigong involves breathing, movement and relaxation exercises, and teacher Walter Sapetschnig offers a comprehensive introduction to the healing method’s techniques.

WALTER SAPETSCHNIG is a qualified fitness consultant. Qigong has been part of his life for many years, and he has a deep appreciation of its calming and strengthening effect, which also has many health benefits.
