Yogini Kaliji’s tour concluded with a four-day program in Switzerland at Schweibenalp retreat center, located in the Alps above Lake Brienz. This year the retreat had an especially peaceful, inward-looking energy; the cool, misty weather and surrounding nature invited reflection and meditation.
Perfectly-paced morning and afternoon sessions were composed with Prana Vidya, Yogaflow, Jnana Flow, and Yoga Nidra with mantra chanting by Mercury Max.
Chant Club performed each night, with Yogini Kaliji on vocals and harmonium and Mercury Max on vocals and percussion.
One evening, many lingered after Chant Club had concluded, not wanting the program to end. When recordings of Chant Club from Bad Meinberg were played, everyone began to dance.
As always, Carmen was a sweet and wonderful organizer. John and Santoshi assisted during classes, Eva-Maria provided German interpretation, and Dr. G presented on medical yoga research.
The stunning scenery is a highlight of Schweibenalp!
