Yoga Retreat Ticino
Yoga Retreat in Ticino, on the sunny side of the Alps!
We stay at Casa Sogno above the vineyards of Cugnasco, a village between Locarno and Bellinzona.
The day starts with yoga in the main room or on the terrace, in any case with a view over the Magadino plain to Lake Maggiore. A rich breakfast, prepared with love, follows. Then it’s off to discover the beautiful valleys and mystical forests of Ticino!
We end the day with restorative yoga, meditation, a light dinner and a glass of wine.
The yoga classes are as dynamic and relaxing as the guests need them to be. Two certified yoga teachers bring in different energies so that both beginners and advanced yogis feel comfortable. Classical hatha yoga is on the programme, but also yin yoga and should someone wish to practice hormone yoga, this can optionally be included.
The view from the bright room or the terrace also provides fresh energy and relaxation. The view takes you towards Lagio Maggiore and Monte Tenero opposite.
The excursions take us to places of power, waterfalls, bridges dating back to Roman times, hiking trails with panoramic views over Lake Maggiore, gorges, forests…. They can be combined with easy hikes. There is always the possibility of shortening the routes, since the Swiss Postbuses run into all the valleys and offer a dense network of stops.
Here are a few highlights.
The Maggia Valley
We drive through the Maggia Valley toFontana in the Bavona Valley. A few steps soon take us to the place of power at the stone bridge below the village. If you like, you can walk to the 110 m high waterfall of Foroglio. Those who like to walk less can take the post bus.
The Verzasca Valley
Driving through the narrow Verzasca Valley, we pass deep gorges and old villages with stone houses nestling on the slopes. In Lavertezzo we linger at the beautiful old stone bridge Ponte dei Salti, which swings in a double arch over a natural bathing pool. Lavertezzo is the starting point for several hiking trails, small circular routes or invites you to simply linger on the rocks around the stream.
The city of Locarno is known for its particularly mild climate. Today it also offers a rich cultural life, shopping, coffees in the Piazza Grande, a cog railway to the Madonna del Sasso – the brave go up on foot and earn the breathtaking view over the city and Lake Maggiore.
We promised not to share the geolocation. It is to remain an insider tip. Just this: it is a 20-minute walk from Casa Sogno and we are in a fairytale forest with a waterfall and lagoon.
