Yoga and Hiking Retreat, Samoens
The retreat begins at 16h on Saturday, June 18, 2022 and end at 10h on Saturday June 25, 2022.
For those traveling with the train or plane, you will be picked up at the Geneva train station from a private chartered taxi.
Every morning we will start with a 75-90 minute Vinyasa Flow class, either indoors or outdoors, weather depending- except for the morning that we spend in the mountains. These classes are tailored to the energy of the group, the day ahead of us and our personal condition. Modifications are given for all students and different levels are possible in the classes. This is a physically challenging retreat and one that needs good fitness and conditioning, so yoga will help to open up the body to meet the demands of the week.
Each evening will end with a 60-75 minute Yin Yoga/Resorative class except the evening that we are in the mountain hut. The classes will be deeply nurturing and nourishing allowing you to truly let go and rest. Since we will be exerting a lot of energy, these classes are meant to balance the nervous system and create a pathway for quietness and healing.
Our meals will be lovingly prepared by world renound Intuitive Chef, Selina Gullery. All meals are not only fabulous but vegetarian, locally sourced, organic, energetically balanced and created with so much love. Selina will prepare picnics for us during our hikes, have teas available during the day, snacks after the hike and warm breakfasts and dinner.
There will be two full day hikes during the week in addition to our overnight in the refugee with our French Mountain Leader, the fabulous Aga- loved and adored by all past participants. We will take one overnight trip to a mountain refugee, you may also opt out of this and stay at the Dojo. Please note that there will be no meals provided if you choose this option. You are free to use the studio to practice in. For those that choose to hike, dinner and breakfast will be taken at the hut and is included in the cost of the retreat. A packed lunch the following day will also be provided by the hut.
After our long overnight hike, we will have a hot tub under the starry skies- this is one of my favorite things to do and feels so wonderful after many days in the mountains. So make sure to bring your bathing suit.
On the days that we relax, there is the option to visit the town of Samoens, go to a lake, do nothing or take a hike by yourself. There is time for everything and nothing.
We will be here during the week of the Summer Solstice and will hold a special ritual during this time to celebrate the light, love and abundance that we have in our lives.
There is a maximum of 10 guests.
