Best Yoga Destinations in Switzerland
All cities in Switzerland have various yoga studios with every yoga style you could ask for. What is special is that a lot of the shalas were factory rooms in the past and are now modern yoga studios, tastefully designed, often with a beautiful view and flooded with light. Here are just a few examples of the diversity of the yoga shalas in Switzerland and what makes yoga in Switzerland so special.
Bern: A bit hidden, in an Art Nouveau villa, there is a beautiful yoga shala with a view on wild greenery. Iyengar Yoga Bern is the first Iyengar Yoga School in Bern and teaches beginner, medium and advanced levels.
Zurich: In a former brewery in Zurich you can now find Zanana Living. The studio has four meter high rooms with a modern factory flair. The big windows allow light to flood into the studio and the warm parquet in the rooms smell like wood. The yoga shala teaches Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Yin Yoga but also offers workshops and yoga teacher trainings.
Graubünden: Various monasteries in Switzerland are available to weekend visitors. The yoga studio in the monastery Müstair has mighty walls that surround the rooms. The yoga room itself is dressed entirely in wood. Usually, you spend at least two days in this spiritual place to get to know the monastery and its surroundings better.
