*If you’re interested in joining the retreat on Thursday instead of Wednesday, please get in touch.

In April we will again dive deep into the yoga practice in beautiful surroundings of Maggia Valley in Swiss Ticino.

The retreat will be small and personal and there will be plenty of time for practice, yoga talks and getting to know each other. In between the classes you will be able to enjoy a number of outdoor activities in the valley or you can pay a visit to lovely Locarno and Ascona.

The retreat will start with an afternoon class on Wednesday, followed by dinner and a talk in the evening.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will meet for a morning Mysore class, an afternoon workshop-like session and a Q&A with short meditation after dinner. Between brunch and the afternoon class you will have time for your activities.

We will conclude the weekend with one more class on Sunday morning. The group will be small and the topics of the sessions adjusted to your needs. All levels of practitioners are welcome to join, including beginners.


We will stay at Eco Hotel Cristallina in Coglio. It’s a lovely little hotel with a great access to Maggia Valley and with a direct bus connection to Locarno.

You can choose the accommodation option according to your needs, taking a quiet time alone or sharing a room with a friend. The hotel is dedicated to the idea of sustainability and natural way of living. 

The hotel’s restaurant will spoil us with a buffet-style brunch and a yummy vegetarian (vegan on request) dinner in the evening. Some of the vegetables on your plate will come from Cristallina’s own garden.

If you are joining the retreat with your friend or partner, you can book the room together. If you travel alone, but would like to share a room, let me know – I will try to pair you with another participant. If you’d like to bring your partner or children who don’t do yoga, it’s possible, but please book early – the hotel is small and the space for people who don’t practice is very limited.
