Spend the yoga holiday of your life at the Tuxerhof

Many people have discovered the power of yoga and are keen to continue their ritual even while on holiday.

We understand why. After all, we are also convinced of the positive effects of the positions known as "asanas", especially when led by an experienced yoga instructor in a light and airy room given over to yoga and meditation. Here at the Tuxerhof we have just that in our fourth-floor HimmelREICH lounge. Come along, try it out and let yourself be enchanted!

Yoga is for me all about feeling happiness and peace in every fibre of my body. It's a million miles away from the stress and competititveness we experience in everyday life.

Gaby, yoga instructor at the Tuxerhof

Yoga instructor

Humble and quiet. That is the best way to describe Gaby, who has been in charge of our yoga lessons here at the Tuxerhof for quite a while. But don't let yourself be deceived - she has had an action-packed life working as an engineer on an oil platform in Norway plus a few more interesting jobs along the way.

She came to yoga as an attempt to find relief from chronic back pain. After her first yoga course she decided to train as an instructor and take a new path in life. Guests at the Tuxerhof can look forward to yoga lessons with a very special person!

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga


Hatha yoga is a form of yoga focussing on the balance between mind and body. It uses a series of physical exercises (asanas), breathing exercises (Pranayama) and meditation to achieve this goal. Hatha means the energy for life which is needed to achieve true harmony between mind and body.

Sun salutation

According to Far Eastern tradition, the early hours of the morning are a special time particularly suited to yoga. Nature comes to life and the body's metabolism begins to work, preparing the organism for the day ahead. This is a good opportunity to positively influence the body, setting it on the right track for an enjoyable and productive day.

The sun salutation is a series of twleve yoga exercises (asanas) performed one after the other with a certain breathing pattern. The exercises invigorate mind, body and soul as well as loosening joints, muscles and ligaments and training the cardiovascular system.

Gentle yoga & Pranayama

Soothing movements – gentle breathing – quiet moments

Slowly and carefully we will approach the mind and body. A series of exercises results in the release of happy hormones and growth hormines, which have an anti-aging effect.

Tip! Perfect for beginners who want to try out yoga for the first time.

  • Five Tibetans: "Five Tibetans" refers to a series of five exercises aimed at maintaining a healthy body and mind. These exercises have been performed for centuries by Tibetan monks and cause the energy in the body's chakras to be harmonised. Each exercise is said to have particular benefits for the body and mind, from strengthening the immune system and smoothing the skin to avoiding prejudice.
  • Singing bowls therapy: overtones – leads to alpha state – deep reflection
  • SatSang – philosophy: talking, listening and reflecting together – cause and effect

Nidra yoga

Journey of discovery to your INNER SELF

Nidra yoga aims to achieve deep relaxation of mind, body and soul. It is characterised by easy yoga exercises and breathing exercises. Prepare for a journey of discovery to your inner self.

Chakra meditation with Moon salutation

Meditation session aimed at soothing the body

The human body has seven "chakras". The word "chakra" refers to key energy points in the body which have a major effect on the circulation, hormone levels, organ function, emotions and thoughts. Chakra meditation is characterised by slow, conscious, deep breathing, total peace & quiet, colour & light and becoming one with your inner strength.

The result is that natural blockages in the body are released, giving the chance for every to flow and to body to return to its natural state of relaxation.

Nidra yoga for children

A fun, relaxed and playful way to discover the joys of yoga. Children learn to develop a feel for their bodies and breathing. Yoga is also a great way to strengthen self-confidence – and relax from the hustle and bustle of life at school or kindergarden.

Yoga for children encouages youngsters to be creative and use their imagination. It is also a good way to train motor skills. Almost all yoga positions and exercises have names inspired by nature (Cobra, Dog, Fish, Ape, etc.), something whic often appeals to children. Through a series of games and stories children learn about their bodies with our friendly and professional yoga instructor Werner.
