Trail Running & Yoga Weekend

Active and meditative weekend in the stunning Jura mountains!

We will have the exclusive use of a beautiful chalet with amazing views of the Jura and the Alps for the entire weekend.

Programme: trail run 15 – 25km per day (depending on the group and conditions) with 800m+ of elevation gain, 2 yoga classes per day with a certified yoga teacher, barbecue on Saturday night if the weather is nice, board games, and good company!

Details

Friday

You will arrive at St-Cergue train station at 20:00. We will all meet in St-Cergue and hike together to the chalet, which will be our home for the weekend.

Saturday

Wake up before dawn for a sunrise yoga session and appreciate the breathtaking views of the Alps in the background. Enjoy a simple and healthy breakfast, help yourself to some snacks and to whatever you want to take with you for lunch, and get ready for our nice outing of the day. After a long trail run in the Swiss and French Jura, going up and down mountains, enjoying this rolling countryside, maybe running past a herd of chamois, stopping for a picnic lunch with gorgeous panoramic views of Lake Geneva and the Alps, we will get back to the chalet where a nice afternoon tea and cake will be waiting for us. We will then have the second yoga session of the day to relax our bodies after this long run. Dinner at the chalet (if the weather is nice, we will have a barbecue on the terrace). There will be some board games available to spend a nice and playful evening before a restful night.

Sunday

Again, we will start the day with a sunrise yoga session, followed by a nice breakfast and an enjoyable trail run to discover some new parts of this pretty area. We will return to the chalet in the afternoon for a cake, a cup of tea, and the last restorative yoga session to wrap up a beautiful weekend, before heading back to St-Cergue.
