Return to Nature

Join Cat Kabira for these 3 days of powerful rejuvenation and magic.

We get so busy that we don’t always have the time to drop-in to what’s true and important to us. Going away on a retreat is the perfect opportunity to step away from your usual life habits and patterns and reconnect to yourself. A time to honor what’s sacred and important to you. Perhaps you need to recharge yourself and receive some nourishment, perhaps there are questions up for you in your life and you need some space and something different to help the answer uncover yourself, maybe you simply want some fun and an opportunity to enjoy the power of the mountains and lots of delicious yoga. The magical energy of the Engadine valley and the Morteratsch glacier help you to root and reconnect to yourself. No matter what your intention is, this is your opportunity to clarify and come back to yourself.

Every morning includes a 1.5 hour “Core-Flow” practice in which you move in a more dynamic way to get your energy moving and a stronger connection to your core. Each practice is different and is a wonderful opportunity to refine your own alignment, practice new sequences, and simultaneously rewire your physical, emotional, and mental bodies. Included may be mantra and/or meditation as well.

Our evening practice includes Cat’s signature Biodynamic Yin in which you’ll practice more restorative and passive poses along with guided meditation and work with your subtle energetic body.

Yoga mats, blocks and straps, blankets and other props are available for class.

Hikes

Hike to Boval hut (4-5h, guided hike)

From our hotel, we hike up trough the forest to the trail that follows the Morteratsch glacier’s terminal moraine and from there further up to the Boval hut on 2495m. From here, you have a stunning view to the majestic mountain massif including Piz Palü, Bellavista, Piz Bernina and Piz Morteratsch. After a rest and some snacks on the terrace, we ascend down to the end of the Morteratsch glacier where you can feel (and touch) the strong and clearing energy of the ice. From there is a nice lovely walk back to the hotel.

The hike is around 11km long with an ascend and descent of 650m each. For this hike, you should be reasonably fit and able to walk for 4-5h. According to the Swiss Alpine Club hiking scale, the hike is classified as T2.

If you feel you need more time off for yourself or don’t feel comfortable with hiking for 4h, you can opt to walk to the end of the glacier by yourself (see below). It’s a more of a walk than a hike in a pictures landscape.

Hike to Morteratsch glacier (2h, non-guided hike)

In a bit less than an hour, you walk from our hotel to the milky glacial lake and gigantic ice tongue of the end of the Morteratsch glacier. The well maintained path runs in the valley where the glacier has melted over the last years and offers an incredible view of the gigantic glacier as well as the surrounding mountains. At the end of the path is the Morteratsch glacier where you can feel (and touch) the strong and clearing energy of the ice. Walking back is a little shorter as it’s going slightly downhill.

The hike is around 6km long with an ascend and descent of 280m each. For this hike, you should be able to walk for 2h. According to the Swiss Alpine Club hiking scale, the hike is classified as T1.
