Autumn Glow | September 26 – October 1, 2021

«Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop» – Rumi

Kurhaus Bergün

From 1249 CHF | 5 Nights | English & German

Spend five days in a historic Alpine sanctuary, surrounded by mountain peaks and pristine nature. Embrace the natural cycle of letting go, rest, and rejuvenation. With the support of nature on your side, you get the opportunity to shed your own dead leaves. Let go of what no longer serves you, be easier on yourself, allow for a break. Like new leaves appear on trees after a period of rest, this retreat will support you in freeing up new pathways and planting new seeds, ready to bloom when you are.

Join me for deep but gentle asana practice, clearing up your body-mind and creating space where you’ve been holding on so tight. Join me for moments of calm and clarity, deep breaths, mindful walks and guided meditations. Join me for delicious and healthy meals, for connection and community. In this time of reflection and transition, join me to ground yourself in order to lift yourself up.

  • Harvest the energy of the stunning Alpine landscape
  • Spend five nights in a gorgeous Jugendstil hotel
  • Enjoy delicious & healthy breakfasts and dinners
  • Connect to nature and the peace that it brings
  • Daily bespoke yoga, breathing and meditation practices help you turn inward and let go
  • Find calm and clarity to focus on what really matters to you

Transition into the colder months with a calm mind, a radiant heart and a belly full of abundance.

Get your Autumn Glow!

Yoga

Drawing from classical Hatha Yoga, somatic movement, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, range of motion exercises and embodiment practices, our asana sessions will be deep and gentle. Centered around mindfulness, awareness and sensory attention, I invite you to peel away the layers, step into the field of the felt sense and let go of dogmatic concepts.
Classes are all-level. The practice is open to all bodies and ages, and no particular fitness or health level is required.

Accommodation & Prices

The Kurhaus Bergün was planned when the Albula railway line from Thusis to St. Moritz was opened in 1903. In spite of its luxurious ambience and the most modern facilities of the time, the hotel was never an economic success and had to struggle for its existence from the very beginning.
In 2002, the run-down hotel was bound to close. A group of regular guests, not willing to witness the downfall of their year-long holiday destination, founded the Kurhaus Bergün AG and started to restore the building step by step, conserving the historic monument and skillfully polishing off the dust from this gem of the Jugendstil era, making it shine for the coming decades.
Nowadays, the hotel is appreciated for its creative cuisine with local produce, its spectacular Jugendstil dining hall and the well preserved original public rooms, such as the ladies’ saloon, the library, the bar and the former hotel kitchen, as well as the Kurhaus’ former cinema, which will be our yoga shala during the retreat.
