Yoga hideaway Sutra House basel


Coming soon.




Hide away in a beautiful and calm environment. Slow down, take a breath and find some space to reconnect to your inner life.


Spend a long weekend in Basel - doing yoga, nourishing yourself with amazing vegetarian food, taking walks in the nearby forest, visiting the Beyeler museum and cleansing your body and soul in the wellness area.


Join Chris Moffitt and Melanie Gerber for this long needed hideaway.


A Space for Meditation, Yoga, Nutrition, Therapy and Healing Arts.

Set into a forested hillside near above the Rhine valley and village of Riehen -  A sanctuary where one can re-connect to the inner life. Sutra House is designed as an architecture and spiritual space for contemplation & connection, nourishing the body & mind. 

This vision of the Sutra House has many reasons, but they all share a similar thread — promoting an integrated, meaningful and healthy relationship to our life. The various types of Inner-work happening here - art, food, yoga, insight, meditation, therapy and contemplation - all provide insights into the things that shape and create our life - exploring the “nature of things”. Learning offers us new tools to make our shifts in our life and within our community. Cultivating an attitude of community allows us to stay present to our environment, challenging our lives with a compassionate response.

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.


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.
