This summer Elysian Collection have teamed up with Sarah Cullen from Updog Downdog to create an exclusive yoga retreat in Chalet Maurice.
Sarah is a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner and inspirational teacher. Through her teaching and your practice she will awaken you to the incredible balancing benefits of yoga, both physical and spiritual. She has studied the Ashtanga Vinyasa system with internationally renowned yoga teachers, including Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa, India.
The week long programme will enable our guests to deepen their Ashtanga yoga practice at a luxurious setting amongst stunning scenery.
Each morning there will be a traditional Mysore-style Ashtanga practice, when students can develop at their own pace whilst having plenty of individual attention from Sarah, making it suitable for practitioners of all levels.
A second, more relaxing Yin-style practice will be held in the late afternoons.
The sessions will be held on the wellness terrace overlooking the Jacuzzi with magnificent views of the Matterhorn.
Every morning we provide a health breakfast designed to energise and cleanse. Our chef has planned menus specifically balanced for refreshing taste and rejuvenation. Treat yourself to a massage and join some of the organized extra activities led by our in-house Mountain Leader, who will take you to explore what Zermatt has to offer. Hike, paraglide, mountain bike or follow a via ferrata. Awake early to watch the sunrise over the Matterhorn. Or simply take time to relax in Zermatt’s mesmerizing natural beauty. We plan yoga sessions high above the town by a mountain lake amidst the grass and wildlife.
This is truly a retreat into a slower pace of life, where the luxury of an Elysian Holiday and the balance and peace of Ashtanga Yoga work side by side in harmony
