This Hike & Yoga Retreat will be guided in English and Finnish, according to the participants. Group size is small. Minimum 6, maximum 8 persons. Due to small group size everyone can profit to the max, and we’ll be able to attend to everyone’s personal needs.
In the quiet corner of the beautiful Heidi landscape we dive into the surroundings by experiencing diverse hikes during the days and calming ourselves and our bodies down with gentle yin yoga practice in the evenings.
During the 5 days you get to experience stunning landscapes on guided hikes in the region as well as relaxing and soothing yoga sessions in the evenings. We will do two longer full day hikes and one half-day hike. You also get to experience what it’s like to be accompanied by charming trekking goats. With funny goats on your side, smile on everyone’s face is guaranteed :) Weather permitting, we do the yoga sessions outside in the nature, surrounding ourselves with the healing sounds of Mother Earth.
Our accommodation for the retreat is located up on the mountains, on the sunny plateau above Isenthal, at the altitude of 1540m above sea level. All double rooms in cosy “Berggasthaus Gitschenen” are furnished with a new Relax natural sleeping system, to guarantee a good sleep for you. During the retreat you will be pampered daily with a delicious 4-course vegetarian dinner-menu, a small, fine breakfast buffet and a takeaway snack lunch. Food is prepared with care and love – in order to delight everyone’s body and soul. Regional products are used wherever possible.
For the yoga we do have a calm atmosphere in a very special yoga space, a small mountain Chapel. Weather permitting, we also do yoga practices outdoors. From Gitschenen we have beautiful views over the mountains, starry nightsky without any light pollution. And also, with bit of luck and patience a good chance to observe some wildlife.
As an extra treat during your stay you will get an insight on mountain bee keeper’s work, naturally with a degustation of yummee fresh mountain honey.
We hope to meet you in the loving embrace of Mother Nature, during the lovely season of late summer when the days are still warm. Take time for yourself, come and breathe the fresh mountain air. Hike in the most beautiful mountain scenery, relax and recover with yoga, eat healthy and nutritious vegetarian food. Enjoy the company of the cute trekking goats, learn more about wonderful honey bees and indulge yourself with fresh mountain honey. Sounds like a perfect combination, right?
