Yoga and Hiking Weekend in Sankt Antönien
Experience Life in its simplest terms… Re-connect to Yourself and to Nature, really “take a break”! Yoga and hiking experience in the quiet and authentic surroundings of St. Antönien, nestled in the heart of Switzerland with an unreal atmosphere and mountains.
This trip is led by Giada Rocca, yoga instructor, and Celine Kahn, mountain leader.
What’s the plan?
Join us for this Yoga & Hiking experience in the quiet and authentic surroundings of St. Antönien, nestled in the heart of Graubünden and at the border with Austria, a place that stands still in time with its authentic mountain houses, lush greenery, freshwater streams and plenty of time to just Be and forget about time…
Our home for the weekend is the historic Berghaus Sulzfluh, an authentic mountain hotel built in 1875 as a guesthouse, which retains its original character and atmosphere with romantic candlelight, furniture from the old days, creaking floorboards and wash bowls with fresh mountain water. Petroleum lamps light up the guest rooms in the main house and a wood-burning stove provides cosy warmth throughout. The cozy vibes are everywhere, plus a not-to-be-missed opportunity to go for a dip in the Hotpot!
We rise with the sun, we wake up with an energizing morning Vinyasa Yoga practice, and welcome the day (yes! These are our sun salutations). After a delicious hearty breakfast, we go for an amazing day hike through the mountains of the stunning area, embracing the challenge as we immerse ourselves in nature, drinking it in and recharging our batteries. Picnic lunch with amazing panoramas included!
Late afternoons are for restorative yoga practice to explore the deep relaxation benefits of Yin Yoga asanas & pranayama breathing exercises as well as a candlelight meditation.
Food will be vegetarian & delicious, and a chance to delight in gathering around the table to enjoy our meals showered with a healthy dose of laughs.
So join us, take a break, reconnect to the slower pace of Life, enjoy the beauty of the mountains, gaze at the stars, share new experiences, move the Energy around, and relax knowing that nothing is in a rush.
Sulzfluh Circle Trail between Switzerland and Austria
A stunning hike, rich in history and geology, that will make us walk along beautiful mountain lake, spend time in Switzerland and in Austria, and cross three mountain passes. The dark mountain ranges of crystalline Silvretta rock on one side of the valley contrast with the lighter limestone massif on the other, which makes the landscape even more dramatic! Several opportunities to stop for a tea or coffee in charming mountain huts.
12km – 900m ascent – 900m descent
Sulzfluh – Caschinahütte – St. Antönien
A shorter but not less gorgeous hike for the last day of this retreat. We will go up to the Carschinahütte, hiking at the foot of the Sulzfluh, and from there we will gently hike down to St. Antönien, walking past the little Carschina lake.
12km – 600m ascent – 900m descent
Yoga classes will be adapted to all levels.
It is the participant’s responsibility to get health and accident insurances that cover mountain rescue, including extreme sports. Becoming a Rega patron is highly recommended (CHF 40 per year only for emergency medical assistance from the air).
