SWISS ALPS MOUNTAIN YOGA AND MEDITATION RETREAT
Do you love yoga and meditation? Would like to take your practice to mind blowing Swiss Alps?
Imagine a small designer hotel that smells of fresh wood and is set right in the breath-taking Alpine landscape. You open the window and invite into the room a tantalising fragrance of wild herbs and fir trees. You nap to the sound of the river and birdsong as a soundtrack. You practice yoga in a room with floor-to-ceiling windows and Alpine view to die for.
Your body feels stronger and fitter as you practice yoga twice a day and spend hours outdoors. Your mind is both sharper and softer - the unique effect of regular meditation. You know you are taking care of yourself the best possible way.
This yoga retreat is lead by Elena. Elena is the founder of Sparkling Yoga Retreats. She is a psychologist and a Yogi has been leading retreats and teacher trainings for over 9 years. She has a strong background in both technical and therapeutic aspects of yoga and meditation and over 15 years experience of teaching yoga and meditation.

This type of room features a spacious balcony and a luxurious free standing bath tub. In the evening before you sleep, you might dim the light and watch the stars and the sparkling mountain tops.
