There is magic in southern Switzerland, in particular, the region called “Ticino”, that few have been lucky enough to experience, or even know it exists. It is the only Italian-speaking canton in Switzerland and much of it is surrounded by Italy. After a lot thoughtful planning, here’s your chance to experience Switzerland, Mediterranean style!
Having been lucky enough to call Ticino "home", I discovered some of the best international yoga teachers, SUP yoga, mountain trails, gelato, unique shopping, espresso, and of course, vino! I am thrilled to share it with you.
Partnering with Courtenay Mastain, of Mytree Yoga in Lugano, we will curate your magical week of:

To learn more about the Ticino region and Lugano:
What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event?
Airfare to Lugano is not included
Closest airports are Milan Malpensa (MXP), Italy (approx. 45-1 hr drive) or Lugano, Switzerland (20 minutes). For both airports, you may take a shuttle bus to the Lugano train station. For Malpensa use Malpensa Express
From Lugano train station, you can take taxi, bus or walk downtown to Hotel Lido Seegarten (approx. 30 min to walk from train station to Hotel). Please check in beginning at 3 pm and be ready to meet at 4 pm in the hotel lobby
Third option is to fly into Zurich and take a train to Lugano (approx. 3 hrs)
