Yoga & Wellness Retreat at Monastero Arx Vivendi


The name ARX VIVENDI is an allusion to the Latin term for the art of living "ars vivendi", freely applied to Arco and the characteristic arches (archi) of the monastery. The laX citation style is intended to prevent the expectation that vacations will take place here in abstinence. On the contrary:
The concept of carefree enjoyment of life behind Arco's former monastery walls is in the foreground.

The hotel is an old monastery that has been extensively renovated to a very high standard. The imposing gate through which one has to pass to enter the hotel immediately suggests that something very special can be expected here. You then get to the reception area, where the staff immediately make you feel welcome. 

The monastery walls help make the hotel a place of rest and tranquillity. The beautiful garden with its olive trees and the heated pool invites you to relax and linger. 

We have reserved the entire first floor of the monastery for you to be completely undisturbed. This includes 11 exclusive rooms. The rooms are former monastery cells with a ceiling height of more than four meters, with a queen-size bed and individual design elements. 



You get 2 nights at Das Kronthaler. You can choose from single and double rooms.  

When booking, please let us know which room type you prefer. 


You will receive full board throughout the workshop, consisting of a rich breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks and a 5-course gourmet evening menu. 


The Kronthaler is located in the middle of the nature park in the Karwendel mountains. You will get a guided hike during the workshop. The duration is about 3 hours.


You can also rent a stand-up paddle on the nearby lake and enjoy the time together with your coaches on the water.  

Depending on the weather, alternative activities such as forest bathing or climbing tours as well as yoga sessions are also offered. 


You will receive several personality and energy coaching sessions over the entire duration of the workshop. These are underlined with many practical exercises. You will learn how to focus your attention back on the things that you can also shape and decide for yourself. How you can master your everyday life better, how you can recognize your energy robbers and how you can use your resources efficiently again. You develop your own personal concept for the future.
