Walking in the Alps
The word "energy" is a translation of the Chinese word Chi. It is related, but not precisely the same thing as the scientific concept of energy.
The word as used in this context, is something that essentially should be felt.
LA THUILE ABOUNDS IN IT
We have put togther 5 incredibly beautiful CHI hikes in La Thuile that abound in natural energy. We believe they are unique in the Alps. You cannot help but feel the CHI presence when you come upon powerfull waterfalls, calm alpine lakes and spetacular glacial views. We will lead you to these special spots each day which will undoutably revive your body and mind.
Each walking day offers 2 levels of walks: one for experienced fit walkers (A level) and the other a much shorter walk for strollers (B level).
Both walks each day will take you to high energy points and offer spectacular views.
THE 5 CHI WALKS
Each day starts at 7.30 am with a non compulsory session of the 5 Tibetan rites to activate and stimulate the seven key energy chakras in the body. Breakfast then follows at 8.00am after which we depart at approx. 09.30am on our walks. We return each day back ot the Chalet Alpina for a stretch yoga class offered free of charge around 6.00pm. Dinner is served at 8.00pm.
