Vogue - Kathleen Baird-Murray learns Yoga at Schloss Elmau
Vogue, Kathleen Baird-Murray
In her latest column for British Vogue, contributing beauty editor Kathleen Baird-Murray sets herself the goal of learning how to do a yoga headstand at Schloss Elmau in Germany.
"But gliding through the lush Disney-esque countryside of the Bavarian mountains, cruising with ease up steep hills thanks to the electric bikes borrowed from the hotel, Schloss Elmau, with my yoga teacher, Cherryl Duncan, also borrowed from the hotel, I can’t help but think this might even be better than winning the Lottery. The streams run so clear they look like they’re flowing with mineral water, the green of the grass under the pine trees pops as brightly as the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz; a bear ambles up to offer us a jar of honey (okay, I made up that last bit but given the Technicolor beauty of my surroundings, it’s not entirely inconceivable that it might happen); and it’s nature at its most priceless. Surely in this setting a simple headstand - even for me, the girl who just about passed her BAGA 4 in gymnastics and has been to yoga about twice a year for the last four years (yet talks about it as if she does it daily) - is possible?"
Healing Holidays offer a five-night Jivamukti Yoga Retreat at Schloss Elmau from £2,150 per person sharing. This includes transfers from Innsbruck, accommodation in a double room on a half-board basis, two daily group classes, access to the spa, hiking and group activities.
