Known for being a meeting point of energy flows for centuries, the Convent of Bigorio lends itself perfectly to an exclusive yoga session. The practice will take place in the ancient and sunny garden of the sixteenth-century stone building, in the shade of olive trees that recall the Tuscan landscapes, with a breathtaking view over the whole Lugano region.
With great respect for the place and for ourselves we will move in harmony with nature. A yoga session that will transmit strong emotions and will make you discover a hidden corner of paradise in the splendid Capriasca! The Convent is a sacred and private place, accessibility is granted only through participation in special events.

At the Convent of Bigorio, in Capriasca. Parking spaces on site.
Address: Via al Convento 42, 6954 Bigorio
Founded in 1535, it is the first convent of Capuchin friars in Switzerland and for centuries it has enjoyed the reputation of a spiritual place with a particular energy charge. Meeting place for meditation enthusiasts, the convent is often chosen for the organization of symposia and conferences thanks to the tranquility of the place. In particular, we remember the extra muros session of the Federal Council in 1998. With its vegetable gardens and terraced gardens, it is located on Mount Bigorio in Capriasca and enjoys an unmissable view over the whole Lugano area. The current building dates back to the 1767 expansion and, although slightly renovated by a young Mario Botta, is still as admirable as it was then.
