Mindfulness, Resilience & Happiness.

With resilience to an easier & happier life.

Green stands for powerful calm and serenity
If you are looking for peace and distance from everyday life, the two small Walser villages Warth and Schröcken are just right for you. They are located between 1,200 and 1,500 metres above sea level in the Bregenzerwald, Allgäu and Lechtal Alps and together have less than 400 inhabitants. But breathtaking mountain panorama, clean, pollen-free air, crystal clear lakes and green alpine meadows. Green, by the way, is not only the colour of hope, it is the colour of flora and stands for growth and fertility. But also for powerful calm and serenity.

Inner balance in untouched nature
It is no wonder that there is no better place than nature itself to leave everyday life behind and work for your own well-being. In the forest or in the mountains, the human nervous system reacts immediately. Stress hormones drop, blood pressure normalizes, man comes to rest. “With our mindfulness and breathing exercises, everyone can find their own balance”, says Carmen Drexel. “Our offerings combine theory with physical exercises and activities in and with nature. Participants learn new ways to identify stressors and deal with them better. ”

Sport for more resilience
These new routes also include the outdoor programme offered by the local adventure guides of Warth-Schröcken. Whether via ferrata, canyoning, adventure park, flying fox or whitewater swimming – sport is a good way to regulate stress in your own system in a simple and effective way and to return to everyday life strengthened. Above all, endurance sports such as mountain hiking and trail running. By the way: the one who plays an important role in this is his own pig dog. Because as guardian of regeneration, he wants to skip the sport. So, don’t let them down and beat your own bastard. It gives strength.

The program.

Resilience translates to internal resilience. In our fast-paced times, it seems almost impossible to escape stress. Different crises appear again and again in our lives. Find out what makes resilient people, get inspired to think and learn practical exercises on how to strengthen your personal resilience and thus make life easier, more self-determined and happier.

Forest bathing.
Stays in the forest help to slow down, gain new energy and train mindfulness. In addition, inhaling forest air has a positive effect. Experience the powers of the trees and use all your senses in this “bath”: comprehend, marvel, feel, experience and taste.

Alternative program in bad weather.

Happiness – chance or conscious decision.
Every human being has a birthright to happiness. We can be happy without having a reason. Happiness is born in us. I want to make you think. What does happiness mean to you? Give you tools so that you can immediately start implementing your personal, happy life. The proverb “Everyone is a blacksmith of his own happiness” should be breathed into life so that it doesn’t happen. only a phrase remains. Happiness, or rather to be happy, is not a coincidence, but a conscious decision.

This meditation acts like an energy shower! Shake off the stress of everyday life with its many impressions from your body in a gentle way – just let go – and then recharge your batteries by dancing movements! This meditation technique also relaxes deeper levels in the body, can release blockages if you get involved.
The result is a feeling of happiness, deep relaxation and joy.

Fancy trips.
Dive, dive into different worlds, to different places. Forget about everyday life for a while and give your body, mind and soul a break. Calm and relaxation should take place during a fantasy trip and our perception channels (seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting) should be activated subconsciously.

Carmen Drexel – Breathing, Relaxation Coach & Mindfulness Trainer.

I grew up in a small, quiet hamlet outside the community center, but everything was surrounded by woods and meadows and I was able to move freely in nature. Movement in nature still plays a big role for me today!
As a two-time mom, landlady and member of various voluntary offices, there are times when the mountain you have to overcome seems insurmountable! Nowadays, many are burdened with worries and existential fears and have lost touch with nature, their roots and themselves!

Through my training as a breathing and relaxation coach I found ways to restore that connection!
I was amazed at how fast and effective already short breathing exercises in
Stress or anxiety can work to find oneself again! I noticed how good it is and I would like to pass on this experience, share it, experience it with other people, and together with Rebecca I offer the program “mindfulness, resilience & happiness” once a week via Warth-Schröcken Tourism!

Ground rules.

Breathe consciously in order to establish the natural relationship to breathing, to the body and to our consciousness!
Do not exaggerate or force yourself to do anything. The needs of the body should never be suppressed.
If you experience anxiety or discomfort, stop the exercise immediately.
Be patient – not every exercise works and works right from the first time.
Do not wear cramping clothes or jewellery.
The spine should be held straight, so the exercises at the beginning are recommended lying or standing.
And there should be some time between the last meal.
