Alpine hideaway uri


26th to 29th of September 2024


Just be

Spend relaxing days at "Cortinella - Alpine Hideaway", a place of relaxation, tranquility and recharging your batteries in the midst of the mountains of Uri. At almost 1300 meters above sea level, "the little farm" is surrounded by meadows and fir trees.

Yoginis and yogis breathe fresh mountain air here, hear the chirping of birds and gaze at an impressive mountain panorama.

Just be - with Melanie and Chris.



The "Cortinella" is perfect starting point to spend time in nature. Here is a small selection of ways you can meet nature:

- Walk to the Arnisee
- Geissberg circular hike
- Hike to the Sunniggrätli
- Mushroom and blueberry picking
- Bathing in the hotpot
With prior arrangement:
- Masseuse


The owners of the "Cortinella" pursue the vision of creating a place where people can meet in harmony with nature; get to know themselves better and learn to understand others - openly, honestly, simply. Back to simplicity.

You have the option between a single or a double room.

Melanie M. Gerber


I'm Melanie Gerber – wife, mother of two, Yogini & nutritionist and a woman dedicated to the path of conscious, connected and happy living.


Being blessed with the teachings of yoga from early childhood, I know about the power of yoga to make life easier, happier and more meaningful.


Taught by the daily challenges of family life and many wonderful teachers along the way, I know much about the magic that comes from practising yoga and enjoying healthy food.


I am learning about life every day, but my vision is clear: to find and share tools suitable for modern life that help us live in more conscious, connected and happy ways.


My approach is open-minded, non-dogmatic and full-hearted! My yoga classes are creative, powerful and fun. It’s all about taking the next step – everyone is welcome and appreciated


Chris Moffitt


Chris` first contact with the importance of movement and breathing was on Gozo where he worked for many years as a diving instructor. The job itself lead to his passion for fitness which lead to his discovery of yoga.

Today Chris is an art restorer and yoga teacher living in Zurich, his profession is very meditative perfectly complimenting his passion for yoga.

Chris has been on the mat since 2002 and finished his teacher training in 2018.


Ever since he continously took trainings and deepened his practice and teachings.
