Luxury boutique hotel Le Grand Bellevue in Gstaad will be holding a Yoga, Snow and Spa retreat from 14-18 March in association with Balearic yoga specialists Formentera Yoga
Running from the 14-18 March 2015, the Yoga, Snow & Spa Retreat at Le Grand Bellevue Gstaad will be led by best-selling author, Nike Yoga Brand Ambassador and Yoga Expert Jax May Lysycia. In an alpine location that is ideal for rejuvenating your mind, body and soul, the retreat will include a combination of dynamic yoga and spa treatments, plus the option to ski.
Guests will begin the day with a morning meditation session, followed by dynamic yoga classes designed to help with posture, improved spinal positioning and muscle strength. After an alkalizing yoga-brunch, either hit the slopes or explore Gstaad on a husky ride.
If you’re not outdoorsy, settle in for a day at Le Grand Spa where bespoke spa programmes can be tailored to suit every need, from yoga based holistic treatments, to purification and de-stressing rituals. Refresh with an immune-boosting Turkish steam bath or re-energize at the Brine Grotto, where finely dissolved sea salt is nebulised at regular intervals. There’s also a traditional Finnish outdoor sauna, ice grotto and warm Laconium, and Le Grand Bellevue has a special Kneipp indoor pool, which works wonders for the body’s circulation and at diminishing cellulite.
Days will wind down with a breathing workshop designed to release tension, energy blockages and to trigger toxin removal, then a healthy dinner will be served at the hotel’s Michelin-Starred Restaurant LEONARD’s.
A four-night Yoga, Ski & Spa Retreat at Le Grand Bellevue costs from CHF 2,854 per person (approx £2,016) for skiers and CHF 2,150 for non skiers (approx £1,519). It includes accommodation on a double-occupancy basis, daily brunch and dinner, two yoga classes per day, unlimited access to Le Grand SPA, one husky ride excursion, two three-hour ski instructor sessions and two-day ski pass.
