From milk to butter: the traditional method
In our house, the first thing we eat for breakfast every day contains butter. But have we ever stopped to ask how butter is made or whether it’s good for us? There are only a few experts left who know the traditional method of making butter, and Christian Leitgeb is one of them. He will take you to his farm, the Eggerhöfe, to show you how butter is made. You will learn more about this regional and sustainable product and how it supports inner equilibrium. A healthy and balanced diet allows the body to function in peak condition and improves one’s well-being. After a demonstration, sample the homemade butter on some freshly baked bread.

Breathing training with former biathlete Wilfried Pallhuber: find your inner balance with the right breathing technique
Without even thinking about it, we breathe around 20,000 times a day. Using the right breathing technique has a significant effect on our well-being – it helps us to find inner balance and release positive energy. In connection with the Antholz Valley Ski School, Willi will explain and demonstrate the importance of consciously inhaling and exhaling every day, particularly during sport. He will give valuable tips and help you to learn the basic techniques of conscious breathing. Then you can apply what you have learned at the shooting range. This is a unique experience with a very friendly former professional athlete.
