The POPCORN! hotel will be hosting Yoga & Meditation Weekends & Retreats in summer 2019! Pretty much known as a snowboard & party hotel in the winter time th POCORN! goes a new path for the summer months.
"Yoga and Meditation have had a profoundly positive impact on my life. Dissatisfaction in my life and a cancer diagnosis in 2017 have shaken me awake and I decided to fight for my wellbeing. In the winter of 2018 I discovered yoga because I wanted to change my life and I was longing for mental strength and balance, " says CEO Robi Anthamatten.
"First I read a book about alternative medicine and it explained the importance of yoga in terms of mobility and positive benefits on the fascia and general health. Then I finally got up the
courage and took my first yoga lesson at the yoga studio of Sandra Schönmann, an old friend of mine. This was the beginning of a new era in my life, seeing the difficult challenges of the past as
an opportunity to change my life."
In a yoga retreat in Ibiza, he suddenly had the idea that he could bring yoga holidays to Saas-Fee. Because the POPCORN! hotel has a large, unused terrace with mountain views, which would be ideal for practicing yoga and Saas-Fee with its breathtaking nature is anyway the ideal place to rest and recharge. So the idea turned into reality and the project Yoga was born.
The Yoga summer in Saas-Fee starts on Pentecost Weekend in early June 2019 and offers varied programs until fall 2019. Yoga, meditation, singing bowls, Tai Chi and Mindfulness are the elements of Yoga Weekends and Yoga Retreats.
