Program

Awakening to nature and wellbeing retreat has been created with the intention to offer what humans may need the most: realizing the true nature of one's Self, finding inner balance, grounding within it, and reconnecting to Mother Earth.

Learning how to reconnect with thyself, with nature around us as well as how to deepen and expand awareness.

​​Nature connection practices, such as hiking and forest therapy, are pathways that allow one to return to a basis of health and happiness. While exploring the outside environment, we can reconnect with our inner world.

By including movement and yoga, meditation, and breathing practices in this journey, we offer the opportunity to explore deeper realms of inner reality which will open the doors to self-compassion, kindness, and love. By enjoying these practices daily in a pristine alpine environment, true mental and physical detox will take place. You will learn to truly take care of yourself and expand the experience back home, nourishing the connection you’ve built.
