OM Yoga center
OM Yoga Center is located in the heart of the Slovenska Bistrica city. The house, which is under cultural heritage, was built in 1880 and underwent a complete renovation in 2020. A touch of tradition, spacious and bright halls, fireplaces, and modern yoga equipment, with a view of the national park and pure nature, allow guests to completely relax, enjoy and recharge their batteries.
In 2022 all shared rooms were also completely renovated. Clean, bright, warm, and comfortable accommodations allow guests to fully devote themselves to personal development and spirituality.
The entire complex is dedicated to yoga, meditation, and spiritual activities. Traditional yoga classes are performed daily with additional psychological and spiritual content, offered during the weekends.
Just minutes away from the yoga center you can experience quiet forests, natural beauties, mountain lakes and waterfalls, hiking and biking trails, and much more.
Traditional yoga styles like Ashtanga Vinyasa or Hatha yoga will center your body and breath. After yoga sessions gentle breathing techniques and guided morning meditation will reconnect, your whole being and prepare you for a new mindful day. Various activities will provide a deep level of relaxation and regeneration, including: active hiking trips in nature, cold deeps in the mountain lakes and waterfalls, cycling or relaxing with regenerative massages with sound, reading yogis scriptures, recharging with yoga nidra, joining lectures about yogic lifestyle, vegan nutrition, yogic philosophy, or just taking time for yourself in our peaceful garden. In the evening, another gentle Yoga session and evening prayers will fill you up with peace, love, energy, and positive vibration.
All levels are welcome if you are a beginner in Yoga or would like to get deeper into it, or even an advanced Yogi wanting more. We are here for you with different sorts of retreats: you can either join a dynamic, Active Summer Retreat or explore the authentic, most ancient, and powerful yoga with Unique Kriya Yoga Retreat.
