Hotel Milano Alpen Resort & Spa is located in the heart of the Bergamask Dolomites and 90 kilometers from Milan, Italy’s bustling business, fashion, and shopping center. With its blend of tradition and modernity, this stunning mountain resort offers a unique opportunity for personal transformation. It is where you can recharge by means of natural wellness rituals, alternating between the most innovative and luxurious natural and organic beauty treatments and fitness activities taking place in the surrounding scenic alpine forest.

An essential break, allowing you an escape from the routine, a well needed self-rediscovery time, a romantic weekend, and a time to truly enjoy your loved one or loved ones. This is a place for a vacation to discover your optimum physical and mental health or, for the more innovative organization, a training course to help your team renew their inner force and vision.

Hotel Milano Alpen Resort & Spa believes in being one with nature, in ‘enjoyable’ physical activity, in using organic farming to obtain effective and pure essential oils to naturally nourish and promote your inner and outer beauty. In respecting the environment, helping you to live in a more wholesome world, in lasting friendships, in unfaltering hospitality, and in good healthy food accompanied by the ‘right’ glass of wine. Although it can often be difficult to maintain the right balance with such a lifestyle, Hotel Milano Alpen Resort & Spa offers this balance!


This retreat has a vast program of yoga, meditation, and hiking. Each day you are going to start with Vinyasa yoga, followed by mountain hikes with a local guide, free time after lunch when you can use the spa facilities, and in the evening, yoga and meditation practice. After that, you will be offered with delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant made of local, organic ingredients with a variety of Italian wines. This yoga retreat will be lead by Paulina Grochowska, the founder of English Yoga Milan.

This small group yoga retreat is open to all ages and levels of yoga experience. The training is composed of a lineage called ISHTA yoga (Integrated Study of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda). Each practice is based on principles of Hatha yoga with breathing exercises pranayama and floating asanas (Vinyasa). You and your body will be cared to create an anatomically-based alignment practice that is sensitive to the individual, encouraging each student to find their own yoga with acceptance, curiosity, and joy.

Challenging asanas are mixed with resting poses for a well-balanced class that combines physical awareness, strength-building, and flexibility with mindfulness and relaxation and a bit of humor. Evening yoga practice is also followed by meditation practice to let go and release everything you do not need such as negative emotions and unpleasant sensations in order to find peace in the heart.
