What could make the small, beautiful mountainside town of Weggis even more idyllic? How about taking in the breath-taking views of Lake Lucerne and the Rigi while you reset your body and mind at an alfresco yoga session?

This dreamy scenario is easier to achieve than you might think, thanks to Yoga Meets Weggis. This all-encompassing studio has helped Weggis become something of a hidden yoga hotspot due to the huge range of events on offer. Take your pick from Saturday yoga accompanied by brunch and a spa, online sessions for those who want to hone their downward dog at home, and a wide series of mini-retreats that combine specific yoga practices with running, Ayurveda and even workshops on the handpan drum.

For those looking for something a little different, there are events like the Innerwalk, based around a guided audio hike (through wireless headphones) to incredible, secluded countryside spots where those taking part can increase their mindfulness and get back to nature.

As you’ll probably have guessed, being outdoors and appreciating the magnificent location is a big part of many of the practices – and why wouldn’t it be with a setting as superb as Weggis? And don’t feel you have to be a seasoned yoga expert to appreciate what’s on offer, as there are sessions to cater for all levels, including beginners and those completely new to yoga. After all, you have to start somewhere – and when you do start, you’ll be glad you did it in Weggis.
