Location and Accommodation

Accommodation

Our retreat will take place in the peaceful settings of the Bernese Jura mountains at the Yoga University of Villeret (BE), which has great Yoga and Mediation rooms.

 

The Yoga Center balances modern needs for comfort with the traditions of a Yoga Ashram. The retreat package includes two nourishing, healthy vegetarian/vegan meals a day, water, coffee and tea as needed and three nights in simple and clean accommodation, mostly double rooms with shared bathrooms and shower facilities. There are also single rooms available, some of them with private bathrooms.

Alcoholic beverages, smoking, fish and meat products are not allowed on the premises.

 

Guests are asked to help with simple tasks such as cleaning their own dishes after meal times, lighting candles and help set up the Yoga room.

 

Please bring your own towels and slippers with soft soles (most of the house has stone floors with underfloor heating).

Location and Region

Villeret is located in Vallon St-Imier, an extremely charming area of ​​the Bernese Jura, but far away from the main tourist roads of Switzerland. Nice walks are possible in the immediate vicinity of the yoga centre. The well-known hike through the protected area of ​​the “Combe Crède”, a wild Jura gorge on the Chasseral (1600m), from which you can enjoy a wonderful view of the entire Swiss plateau and the adjoining Alpine chain, begins in Villeret. Another destination is the Mont Soleil and particularly worthwhile, the "Etang de la Gruère", a likewise protected lake landscape in the middle of a high moor of national importance. Biel, Neuchâtel and La Chaux-de-Fonds are easily accessible.
