Program

Chi Kung, also known as Qigong, is an ancient system of exercise, which has been widely practiced in China and throughout Asia for many thousands of years. Because of its ease and incredible effectiveness, it is becoming clear that Chi Kung is the perfect cure and answer to the western problems of stress, exhaustion, constant sickness, and feelings of hopelessness. Within Chi Kung, you can find your true self, be healthy, happy, relaxed, and confident.

There are many different systems of Chi Kung, some practiced with the body still and some moving to various forms and movements. Various forms of traditional Chi Kung in China are related to health and the spiritual currents of China such as Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism.

Included excursions

Mill Route

Immerse yourself in nature. Meditate under the trees. Every breath you take, every move you make, this is the essence of Qigong. The route of the mills takes you through the breathtaking countryside of Bimenes. Crossing the river and walking for a few minutes, you will find the first mills: El Molín de Matilde, El Molín de Barrial, Flora, Ferreru, or Máxima.

On the horizon and among the abundant vegetation, you glimpse the imposing peaks of the Sierra de Peñamayor. After a few kilometers of travel and close to the finish line, you will find the Molín de Milio or Fermina, which has been perfectly restored and conditioned to publicize the instruments and mechanisms used in the Asturian milling tradition. You find there a table with a bench so you can rest and replenish strength. It is at this point that the route intersects with that of the Peña del Hombre.

You continue on the way, upstream, and you arrive at the last mill of the route, the Molín de Honorio, where a path on the left takes you to the village of Melendreros, end of the route. The return home will take place on the same path.

Cider Museum

Asturias is famous for its cider and there is an abundance of cider apple trees all over the region. The retreat itself is host to more than 30 trees. The Cider Museum is a tribute to the culture of cider. The fundamental challenge taken up by the facility is that of visitor participation.

Via an enveloping display system, it seeks to transmit all the information possible regarding cider-making and the consumption and history of cider, taking into account all aspects and the social and cultural setting of this drink. Topics such as the cider tavern, traditional games, musical instruments like the bagpipes and so on play a leading role in this facility.
