Located in the valley of the same name, Relais d'Arpette is nested above the small village of Champex-Lac in the Swiss Alps of Valais. This Lodge will offer you comfortable accommodation in the middle of a truly breathtaking panorama.

One of the cabins will be completely privatized for the group so that you can make yourself a home, chat, play games, or listen to music in your free time. It is also equipped with a kitchen and a fridge so that you can keep your snacks and drinks there during your whole stay. You also can cook if you do not wish to have lunch at the lodge or the village.

Relais d'Arpette is the ideal place to recharge and to feel a strong connection to the surrounding nature, as well as to spend a good time with other participants or to explore a beautiful landscape that is fully covered in snow at this time of the year.

Far away from the noise of the world, Relais d'Arpette is the ideal place for introspection and meditation.

Program

You will enjoy a relaxed and cozy atmosphere together while taking the time to deepen your practice. In your time off, you will have the possibility to explore the beautiful snowy nature and to truly unwind and relax far away from the noise of this world.

You consciously will have longer periods of free time where you can choose to relax for yourself, do an outdoor activity, or visit the village of Champex-Lac.

The classes and practices of these retreats are designed for all levels. All practices and activities are strictly optional.

Yoga

Enjoy two yoga classes a day and dive deeper into this beautiful practice. You will move the energies in your bodies, create space, and release what you no longer need as well as strengthen and deepen your asana (yoga poses) practice. You will also have the opportunity to experience different yoga styles like Yin, Strala, and Vinyasa yoga with an experienced teacher.

Breathwork

Breathwork (pranayama) is a powerful tool to not only still the mind but to activate both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. In combination with yoga and meditation, breathwork can help you to anchor yourself and to reconnect with your heart and your intuition, as well as to feel energized and refreshed. Your breath (Prana) is your lifeforce energy and it is always accessible.

Bodywork

With techniques like massage and Reiki, we can bring balance back into our bodies and our minds. Learn more about these beautiful practices during the workshops of this retreat.

Meditation

Through meditation, you gain powerful insights as well as the possibility to sort out what is no longer serving you or what was never yours to start with. There are different ways to meditate. In this retreat, your teachers will show you different techniques to enter this blissful space so you get to see what works for you. This gives you the opportunity to keep practicing this meditation at home too.
