Iyengar Yoga mountain retreat in the Italian Alps near Aosta

Starting with the celebration of the New Year, we enjoy opening the body, raising the energy and relaxing the mind in the morning class. We are amidst the most wild mountain in the Alps and enjoy hiking, snowshoe walking or cross country skiing - or relax in the nice hostel.
Before dinner we again have a yoga class with more restorative poses.

Full Description


An invitation to the Iyengar® Yoga Seminar from
31st December 2016 to 7th January 2017
led by Paolo Rava Intermediate Junior II and Lya Saaek Introductory II.

Paolo and Lya certified IYENGAR® Yoga teachers will lead the participants through the learning and practice of asanas during the daily yoga sessions and Paolo, an experienced skier, will lead the ski tours and easy hikes on the snow in the surrounding mountains, which are among the most beautiful, isolated, and wild in the Alps.
The workshop embodies how yoga complements activities in the nature, by creating a spiritual and physical mood conducive to them in a non-competitive way. The silent observation of the nature on the hikes is a natural continuation of the listening inwardly during the yoga practice.

The seminar takes place at the hostel La Batise in the small alpine village of Bionaz in Valpelline, Aosta. Nonresidential participants are also welcome.

We will celebrate New Year’s evening in La Batise and gather for a Midnight meditation.

The first lesson will be on 1st January morning, the last lesson on 7th January morning. Lessons are bilingual in Italian/English.

The schedule is as follows:
7:00 - 9:30 yoga
Hiking, skiing – time free.
17:30 - 20:00 yoga

The total cost of the course is 460 Euro; this includes all lessons, accommodation, breakfasts, dinners and optional excursions.

Cooking is vegetarian and accommodation is in rooms with several beds in the Hostel La Batise. Bionaz can easily be reached by car or bus from Aosta; arrival in Bionaz is on 31st December evening.
