JANUARY 11-13, 2019: YOGA & CROSS COUNTRY SKIING

DAVOS PLATZ

from 500 CHF | 2 nights | english & german | FULLY BOOKED

Do you love the contemplative motion on cross country skis? We kick off our weekend on the night track, then calm down during a guided meditation and finish our first evening with a nourishing three course dinner. Saturday begins with a strong yoga practice, followed by a hearty brunch after which we start our cross country ski tour up the beautiful Sertig valley. At the top we will be rewarded with stunning views. After our evening meditation we enjoy a typical Swiss Raclette, and if you’re still up for it you can relax on the sofa with a night cap. After yoga and brunch on Sunday we go for a last round on our cross country skis and take in some mountain sun at a ski hut before heading back home.

REQUIREMENTS: basic skills in cross country skiing (classic style)

PROGRAMME

Friday, January 11

15.00 Arrival

You familiarise yourself with your room and slip into your cross country gear. Together we walk to the nearby night track and make a few laps while it’s getting dark outside. Back at the shala a cup of hot tea gets us warmed up again.

18.30 Guided meditation/Pranayama/Restorative Yoga

20.00 Dinner

Saturday, January 12

from 7.30 Tea and snacks (self service)

8.30 Gentle Yoga Flow

10.30 Brunch

We enjoy a rich brunch made from local produce before heading over to Bolgen, where we step on to our skis and start our tour. We choose the easier route via Frauenkirch, taking us along the Landwasser river for a few kilometres. After that the track goes steadily uphill. You are of course free to take your skis off and walk for a while – or to get on the bus for the last steep section. Once we have arrived at the little village of Sertig we take a break at the «Bergführer» – the best place in town for home made cake. We travel back to Davos on the bus – unless you’re skilled and seasoned and keen to enjoy the fast ride back down on your skis.

18.00 Guided meditation/Pranayama/Restorative Yoga

19.30 Raclette at the penthouse

Sunday, January 13
