Winter of Wellbeing at The Alpina Gstaad
As we emerge from lockdown and head into the depths of Winter, we feel a need to both enliven and protect ourselves. For those who can, a wellbeing escape in the sunshine, light and air of the fresh Swiss Alps promises to provide the ultimate in rejuvenation.
The vast Six Senses Spa (and only one in Switzerland) at The Alpina Gstaad, has always offered exceptional healing programmes, from ‘Yoga for Sleep’ and ‘Energy Sound Healing’, to ‘Holistic Anti-Ageing’ – think neuroscience meets ancient wisdom. Now, when we need it most, the spa has created two new programmes to help lend support and comfort both emotionally and physically.
And, for those unable to get to Switzerland, the spa’s Head Therapist, Antonis Sarris, has put together his Top Ten Alpine Inspired Wellbeing Tips for not just surviving but thriving through what - on paper - looks to be a challenging season ahead. As Antonis says, “Keep smiling; your smile is radiant, use it.”
