The Yoga&Golf program is something for those
who are searching for active relaxation,
together with contact with nature
in a most picturesque setting.
Both yoga and golf move at a leisurely pace, impose a here and now mode, deepen your internal wellbeing. This is a perfect combination, however unobvious. The unique Yoga&Golf getaway program presents the first in Poland opportunity to practice both these passions at once.
Each day of the Yoga&Golf getaway begins with a yoga session which will gently lead you into the beginning of the day, jump-start your body and prepare it for being active on the golf course. After that comes time for breakfast followed by a few hours of golf. During the golf classes you will learn the playing technique and golf etiquette to then take the test for the green card at the end of the trip. Lunch will be waiting for you after the golf class after which you will have time to use, e.g., to go for a bike ride to the nearby lake. Each participant will also have the opportunity to enjoy a blissful massage (appointments will be made individually). A yoga session before dinner will gently stretch your tired body after a whole day of activity, allowing you to relax and regenerate. Finally, in the evening, you will joyfully immerse yourself in your soft bedding to gather your strengths for another exciting day.

Yoga is an ideal supplement for golf. The more flexible you are the better you play, and the infamous golf swing is no longer as difficult. Additionally, following a round of golf, your sore body is begging for deep stretching which you can get only from a well organised sequence of asanas. The tranquil power of yoga also improves your concentration making a precise putt more achievable.
The getaways take place at Kalinowe Pola, a picturesque golf course in the lubuskie voivodeship, far from any commotion. The intense greenery of the course is calming, the omnipresent quiet intensifies the sense of inner calm. Additionally, the golf course grounds are surrounded by stunning forests. A walk among pine or birch trees is the best remedy for the overstimulation caused by living in the city and constant use of smartphones. Two kilometres from the golf course lies the beautiful lake Niesłysz which is definitely worth taking a dip in. If weather permits, the yoga classes will be held outdoors as to the sense of unity with nature be even fuller.
“The Yoga Retreatment program allowed me to regain contact with myself, free my head from intrusive thoughts and distance myself from everything that absorbs the whole psyche. I felt a great energy inside me.”

It is understandable that you might feel a little less confident in a new place, especially when new skills, which you do not have as yet, come into play. The atmosphere at Kalinowe Pola is so friendly that no guest feels uncomfortable, even if only just taking their first steps in golf.
Modern, air-conditioned bungalows by the golf course will deliver the comfort you need to truly rest and relax after a whole day of activities.

In times of Covid-19 many of us are searching for an idea for the holidays which, other than rest and relaxation, will also provide us with safety. Both golf and yoga allow you to enjoy interpersonal contact while maintaining social distancing. Golf is a social sport but still enables you to adhere to the rules developed during the pandemic, giving the opportunity to enjoy spending time with other people but without the fear that it may bring us harm. Yoga, on the other hand, is practiced on individual mats which are laid out with appropriate separation. Also worth noting is that lubuskie voivodeship has noted the lowest number of Covid-19 cases in Poland. However, to maintain the highest standards of safety, we ask our guests to bring their own yoga mats.
