A note from Elena
This yoga and meditation retreat is for you if you love to move – whether it’s yoga, hiking or exploring; if you enjoy mountains, fresh air that smells of herbs and fir trees, waking up to breathtaking views of forest covered mountains that line the valley and if you appreciate good food, designer alpine decor and architecture, space and tranquility.
I remember the first time time I visited this place. Driving to that little hideaway, I was mesmerised by the stunning picture perfect villages in the valleys, carpets of snow that covered the meadows as we were passing through higher altitudes, colours of the land and the sky that kept changing at twilight, showing off their shades of golden, blue, pink and peach. I remember how I suddenly saw my whole life from a new perspective, as if rising above all the little things in a helicopter, seeing the bigger picture, the beautiful picture indeed. You feel touched to the core of the heart when you come close to pristine, majestic places like this one. And you wonder, can I save a little piece of that magic, inside, and take it home with me..I wasn’t planning on hosting a yoga retreat here at first. It was just a little escape into a surreal place and time to recharge and reconnect. But after having experienced Engadine, I was completely convinced that there is hardly a village more suitable for a yoga and meditation getaway than this. And I am so extremely pleased that this vision is about to come to life.
We are staying in a beautiful spa hotel nested just by the side of the mountain and surrounded by stunning pristine nature. The ellipse shaped hotel features huge windows along one of the walls which allows you to enjoy magnificent views during the day and fall asleep looking out at the stars. There is also a bathtub with a view available in the room, lots of lovely details and outstanding wooden decor.
If you prefer simplicity, there is a more basic choice of room available which is a little smaller and has a regular bathroom. These rooms are in the older building of the hotel. Both types of rooms are available for double/twin or single occupancy.
included in the retreat fee are generous delicious brunches at the hotel every day featuring lots of scrumptiously fresh local produce as well as a welcome dinner at a restaurant in the village.
Our hotel has a beautiful spa with steam bath, sauna with a panoramic view as well as “experience showers”, relaxation room and a massage therapist.
