TRANSCEND. ease and release into spring – Ticino Retreat

March 31st to April 3rd, 2022

Celebrate the beginning of spring with us, a season where everything comes back to life, blossoms and renews, in a beautiful rustic house located in Novaggio, a charming town of  the Ticino region. A chance to rest, explore and tune in deeper with yourself by peeling off all layers, external and internal, that may be left from winter. 

Imagine waking up in the morning, starting the day with an energizing hatha yoga practice, connecting with your body and your breath, followed by a lush homemade brunch. The afternoon is free for you to explore, read, hike the “Sentiero delle Meraviglie”, get a massage or simply unwind in one of the cozy communal spaces of the house – no rush here, there is full permission to just BE. The evenings are filled with soothing yin yoga, yoga nidra, plant medicine and sound healing sessions, which will give you the opportunity to truly listen to yourself and your inner realm. These are the moments to cultivate reflection and deeper understanding on where you are, what to let go and what to welcome this upcoming spring. Our evenings will be made to gather for dinner, and share insights, stories and laughter together before floating towards a restful sleep.

ABOUT YOUR TEACHERS

Guka (Hatha Yoga/Pranayama)

Guka Pitu is a Polish native residing in Zurich. A passionate and experienced yoga practitioner, Guka has completed over 500 hours of teacher training in Switzerland and India, mainly focused on vinyasa flow, hatha yoga, meditation and sound healing. She regularly shares her yoga practice through classes, workshops, and retreats in Switzerland and other locations. While embracing her yoga path, she’s on the mission to prove the accessibility and inclusion of yoga practice to EVERYONE. 

Gina (Yin/Yoga Nidra/Sound Healing/Plant Medicine)

Gina has stumbled upon all things yoga in 2015, while googling methods to improve sleeping patterns – as she’s a bit of a night owl, you know. Yoga never left her side ever since, letting her build trust into the various processes of life, including getting her through the high times in light and joy, as well by dissolving challenging moments, grief and a burn out. Gina has travelled extensively for the past 10 years, and let the practice shape her journeys around the world. More and more, she integrated conscious traveling, a low waste and a plant based lifestyle into her everyday life. She got certified as a Yoga Nidra instructor, in shamanic sound healing, as a Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Teacher in Goa, and as well in Yin Yoga in Zürich. She was the first facilitator in Switzerland to offer CBD infused sessions in the yoga space as the founder of Malie Holistic CBD. In 2021, Gina expanded her studies in advanced Yoga Nidra, with a deeper focus on calm, trauma solving, fear facing and manifestation – so far she has collected over 400h in trainings. She shares soothing and relaxed practices suitable for anyone ready to explore their inner realms, with no judgement and no matter with how much experience.
