Chironico, 6747 Chironico, Switzerland

About the event

Join  me in the beautiful, quiet & authentic village of Ces high above  the valley floor on a natural plateau, a place that stands still in time  with its authentic mountain houses, wood-fired stoves, fresh water  streams and plenty of time to just be and forget about time....

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 spend time using our hands,  contributing to the work in the village (cooking, woodwork, milking the  cows, gardening...) and reconnecting to the slower pace of Life. Nobody  and nothing is in a rush, everything happens at its own pace.

We  enjoy a delicious vegetarian lunch and then join our nature guide for  an easy hike through the mountains, learning and observing the nature,  drinking it in and recharging our batteries.

Late afternoons  are for restorative yoga practice to explore the deep relaxation  benefits of Yin Yoga asanas & pranayama breathing exercises.

We  finish the day with a gathering around the "dorf platz", Ces' very own  piazzetta, set around the wood-burning oven, where we enjoy a  deliciously authentic pizza (yes, the dough is homemade) showered with a  healthy dose of laughs and communal sharing.

About our location:

Ces is a mountain village at 1450 meters above sea level composed of 20 houses made of wood and stone with their barns and stables and a small church from the 17th century. It is surrounded by nature and can only be reached on foot (hiking up a mountain path). It has been inhabited since the sixteenth century until the '50s. Then a group of young people organized themselves in a "community of research community" (political, ecological and social) and together with the inhabitants of Chironico undertook the recovery of the mountain. A foundation was a foundation was created whose purpose is to revive and safeguard the mountain and safeguard the mountain in its traditional characteristics.

We will stay in one of the largest houses in the village, which features a few different sleeping rooms (dormitory style), a ground floor traditional woo-fired stove kitchen and a communal dining area. It is authentic in every single detail. No hot water, no electricty and the biological toilets are located outside the main house. 

Retreat costs: 400 cfh per person, includes 2 nights in mountain house accommodation, 3 meals/day (breakfast, lunch & dinner), 4 yoga sessions, 1-2 guided nature hikes. Not included are any extra food & snacks, alcoholic beverages and similar.

Ces is only accessible by foot, so please be sure that you are able to hike on a well marked T2 mountain path. A packing list with all necessary personal items to bring will be send out to retreat participants upon signing up, as well as retreat access information and other useful information. Please note that there is no electricity or running water in Ces, so very limited possibilities to charge mobile phones will be provided through generator electricty - hot showers possible with purchase of extra fire wood for heating. Accommodation is basic, so a sleeping bag is required. Learning to live without a few urban luxuries.... priceless!!
