Mountain Retreat, Vals/Schweiz


In a world where we are constantly bombarded with new information that our brain needs to process and in an era where time has become our most important resource, giving your head a break while surrounded by the most beautiful nature is perhaps one of the best things you can do for your body and your mind.

The Mountain Retreat is a pure and active nature experience in the clear air of the most beautiful Swiss Alps. September is an amazing time of year in the Alps. There is the sun, but not the blaring kind. The air is clear and fresh and the snow has melted far into the mountains, clearing way to the most beautiful nature experiences these mountains have to offer.

There will be hikes, varied training such as yoga, pilates, functional training, as well as meditation and mindfulness, and also a visit to one of Europe’s most beautiful thermal baths designed by the famous architect Peter Zumthor.
