Yoga & Hiking in the Italian Alps

Escape to the mountains for a rejuvenating 3-day Hiking & Yoga retreat, where you can unwind and reconnect with nature in a breathtakingly beautiful setting. Immerse yourself in the majestic Italian mountains, where you can indulge in hiking, yoga with a view, and delectable Italian cuisine.

This easy-going tour is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness, with none of the paths being particularly technically demanding. So, instead of constantly watching your feet, you can soak in the awe-inspiring views of the mountains. We’ll spend two nights in a luxurious mountain hut, so there’s no need to carry a heavy backpack the whole way. Don’t forget your swimsuit, as there is a charming mountain lake close by.

Our adventure will begin in Vetan, a quaint village in the Aosta Valley, where we’ll trek for four hours to reach our base camp, the mountain hut. After settling in, we’ll enjoy a Hatha Yoga session, followed by a Hatha Flow & Yoga Nidra session before we retire for the night.

On the second day, we’ll embark on a Vinyasa Flow session and climb up to the Col de Fenêtre, located under the majestic Mont Fallère, which boasts a panoramic view of Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. After lunch, we could either walk to Lac Fallère for a yoga session by the lakeside, or simply unwind around the hut. In the evening, we’ll have another session of Hatha Flow & Yoga Nidra before a restful night’s sleep.

On the last day, we’ll start the day with a Hatha Flow session before breakfast, then pack our bags and follow a lovely path back to our starting point.

Chantal de Wit

“Almost 15 years ago, yoga came my way because I was looking for peace and relaxation. Because of the inspiration I received during yoga classes, I continued to practice yoga. After several years of taking yoga classes, it was a logical step for me to choose the yoga teacher training. I would describe my yoga sessions as personal and down-to-earth.”

Hatha Flow

The physical effort of Hatha Flow helps you to get out of your head and into your body. It creates space in your mind making it easier to relax. Chantals Hatha Flow classes are down to earth, accessible and safe. The flow consists of different yoga postures that are both strenuous and relaxing.

Hatha Flow & Yoga Nidra

Hatha & Yoga Nidra is a session combining Hatha Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Hatha Yoga is the classic form of yoga that involves balance between exertion, relaxation and awareness of breathing. Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of yoga and  involves entering a sleep-like state, but in fact, you are almost more alert than when you are awake. Half an hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to about 2 hours of deep sleep.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic form of yoga, connecting different postures through flowing movements to the rhythm of your breathing. This relaxes you and releases tension and energy.

Pranayama & Meditation

Your main source of energy is your Breath (pranayama). The more energy you have, the deeper you can relax. With each in-breath you give yourself new fresh energy. With each out-breath you release into deep relaxation. Breath and relaxation directly affect each other.

From the pranayama, space and silence is created which forms a good basis for the meditation and the meditation in turn creates depth that you can take with you on the hike.
