The house where you will be staying is vast, with an informal walled garden offering hammocks and a labyrinth for walking meditation. The yoga shala is on the top floor of the house, overlooking the medieval rooftops. There are three very large bedrooms, each individually styled, sharing two bathrooms. There are two further enormous suites with their own bathroom on the first floor.
The bedrooms have a certain monastic simplicity, uncluttered and candle-lit, but they are huge and look as if they have been styled by Elle decoration. For guests with allergies, the house was renovated using low-toxin and natural materials. Guests with cat allergies need to be aware that cats visit the garden from neighboring properties, but are not permitted in the house.
During this retreat, you will start the day with a guided meditation. It will be embodied, using breath, gentle yoga asanas, and mindfulness. Remain in silence until breakfast, and spend the remainder of the day relaxing and joyously caring for your bodies. Yogis will have access to the stunning yoga shala for self-practice.
One or two excursions are included in the total cost of this retreat. There will be an opportunity for wild swimming in Lac Montbel or to visit sites of outstanding beauty and historical interest.
