Schloss Blumenthal is a landmarked Château only 45 minutes from Munich, in the middle of nature, surrounded by forests, lakes and fields. Today it is a seminar hotel and a perfect retreat location with restored and creatively designed rooms that offer a unique, relaxing and charming atmosphere.
The focus of the retreat will be revitalizing our health, inspiration, and as a catalyst for deep inner illumination, or self-awareness. Our five days together will consist of Max Strom’s Inner Axis system; practices of breath initiated movement and yoga, lectures, dynamic meditation, and writing. There will be plenty of time for contemplation and rest.
Author of the book A Life Worth Breathing (Das Herz des Yoga), and, There is No APP for Happiness, Max Strom is known for inspiring and empowering the lives of his students and readers. Due to an ever-increasing demand for his teachings, Max travels extensively teaching his Inner Axis system globally. His method addresses the internal, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our life, as well as physical healing and vitality. He has taught tens of thousands of students, and trained over a thousand teachers. Some recent speaking appearances were three TEDx events, and a keynote speech on ethics at a Fortune 500 company. His articles and interviews have appeared in many magazines and newspapers, online media, television, and radio around the world. For more information about Max, please see www.maxstrom.com

For the ultimate retreat experience, it is important that each participant has practiced with Max Strom before, or, has practiced several times with Max’s DVD “Learn to Breathe,” prior to the retreat. If you are a beginner you are very welcome, but it is vital to Max that everyone has personally experienced his method prior to committing to this retreat. There will be people who are very new to this work and also people who have over 10 years experience. It is a noncompetitive environment and you are encouraged to “do what you can, with what you have, with where you are.” You can buy Max’s DVD or digital download at www.maxstrom.com and many other websites such as www.amazon.de or www.yogamatters.com

Max Strom strongly urges you to unplug from all electronic devices during the entire retreat and to keep consumption of alcohol to a minimum or abstain from it until the last evening.
