Practicing Yoga in the Mountains
During my summers spent here in Switzerland as a teenager, one of my favorite things to do was hike up to a mountain hut, stay overnight, and then hike down in the morning. We would go with 30 other people from the boarding school that I attended, and it was always the highlight of the summer.
This year, I have this opportunity to do this again, but with some of my favorite yogis from around the world. A world famous yoga instructor, as well as one of my favorite colleagues, Tom Morley, is coming from Los Angeles. We are organizing a week of yoga and skiing in the Swiss Alps where Tom will lead, and I will be adjusting poses for the twice daily classes.
On the last night of the trip, we will hike up 1.5 hours to a beautiful mountain hut (www.heimeli.ch), have dinner, sleep there, and then take sleds back down to town in the morning. I think it will be an adventure of a lifetime!
If you would like to join us March 6-11th, for this dreamy yoga week, email me and I will let you know all the details.
Besides the night at Heimeli, we will be spending the remaining four nights at Hotel Eden in Arosa (www.edenarosa.ch). I truly believe it will be a week to remember, as so many of my summers in the Swiss mountains have been!
