Ashtanga Yoga Retreat in Château Gottrau

Screenshot 2022-06-04 at 13.34.17

In August we will again dive deep into the yoga practice. This time we will visit a picturesque house near Fribourg, Château Gottrau.

The retreat will be small and personal and there will be plenty of time for practice, yoga talks and getting to know each other.

In between the classes you will have time for yourself to enjoy the time in the garden, to walk in the beautiful countryside or to visit Fribourg.


Date: 25-28.08.2022 (Thursday-Sunday)

Place: Château Gottrau, Montagny (canton Fribourg)

Price: CHF 800-890, depending on chosen accommodation option*

Teacher: Martyna Syguda



The retreat will start with an afternoon class on Thursday, followed by dinner and a talk in the evening.

On Friday and Saturday we will meet for a morning Mysore class, an afternoon workshop-like session and a Q&A with short meditation after dinner. Between brunch and the afternoon class you will have time for your activities.

We will conclude the weekend with one more class on Sunday morning. The group will be small and the topics of the sessions adjusted to your needs.

All levels of practitioners are welcome to join, including beginners – you don’t have to have any experience in Ashtanga or Mysore style classes before coming.

We will stay at Château Gottrau in Montagny. It’s a charming old castle in the countryside with a beautiful yoga room open to a garden. The whole house is booked just for us and you will have an exclusive access to all the common areas, including their big sunny garden. 

You can choose the accommodation option according to your needs, taking a quiet time alone or sharing a room with a friend. Most of the rooms have shared bathrooms, but there are enough showers in the house for everyone to be comfortable. 

Château Gottrau will spoil us with a vegetarian brunch and a delicious dinner in the evening. There will be vegan and gluten-free options. During the day there will be fruits and snacks for you to enjoy. 

The hotel can be reached easily by car and public transport. Those of you arriving by train to Cousset can be picked up from the station by the hotel stuff.
