THE WHITE SIDE of KUNDALUNA WEEK
with Mountain Trotter, Giuseppe ‘Popi’ Miotti & SoulglidersYoga.
not many to tell you what The White Side of Kundaluna is.
All started during MELLOBLOCCO this year.
Many days raining. But not only.
As well known with water all seeds get their nourishment, if lucky they germinate in spring, in summer they grow and in autumn they give their fruit to those who patiently waited for it. So does this week that we are proposing to You.
Our Aim is to give you from 23 to 29 of September, some reflection starting points, prompts of evolution, meditation, pearls of enthusiasm giving you the possibility to make experiences that you will never meet anywhere else, in a frame that our guides know in each little vain.
Yoga, but not a simple yoga retreat.
Thai Chi, YI PAN DENG, but in an experimental laboratory by Popi Miotti.
Rock, but not only climbing, also shelter, roof, perfect set for meditation and story telling.
Green, luxuriant and blooming all around us. Veggie and BIO the food we will share.
KUNDALUNA is not only the name of Andrea Barbieri’s Cafe that will give us the daily basket lunch and will host our chilling moments, but is basically the name of a double climbing route on the Waxing Moon Trail that we will walk hiking.
Up at 2000 m altitude there is a traditional cattle shed used by Melat, the XVIII century inhabitants of the valley, called Stalla Ovale which will be arranged for one night as a comfortable night hostel.
All the week you will have comfortable and familiar accommodation in TANA dell’ORSO B&B, and healthy dinners at Centro Polifunzionale della Montagna.
If you want to know more about the week’s program and details, we are willing to tell you personally and with our energy all the information you need.

Last year for the fist time in my life I went to Skieda in Livigno as we still call this event, even if it now called Free Heel Fest.
You may have a look on www.livignofreeheel.it to realize what I’m talking about.
I was so excited even if I just had a small sample, I just dipped my little toe in this event as it was a cold mountain lake.
I wrote a daily report for Oddo Broglia on
www.telemarktribe.com, and even if he left the body in march, we still remember him with love and kindness.
Anyway that little taste was enough to make me plan a full/intense/skieda week from 5th to 11th april this year.
In the first 4 days, with some friends we found a place in Palza Placheda to practice yoga as to stretch our quadriceps after intense Tellie days and to share experience and intuitions.
Body, mind and soul at a glance in that friendly and party atmosphere.
A Chill out area to meet each other off our boots.
It had been great.
And then the yoga practice. As we know “yoga” come from “Yui-” “Union”
so that practice was a bridge to the Mountain.
A friend and colleague yoga tacher Karin Pizzinini, proposed some exercises during the excursions guided by Icaro de Monte.
I was by her side on monday, and it was a beautiful exchange. I really suggest everybody to try al least once to practice some yoga in high mountain. It’s amazing.
Each one of us got his own motivation to put on skins, walk on a mountain, swaeating, taking off skins, have a cup of tea watching to the horizon, have some nuts and chocolate and then make turns in powder (when lucky), best if in telemark.
Even not necessary during Skieda.
But join an inner experience while moving telemark turns and meeting so many people is amazing.
And at the end of the day parties that made me think about Shiva and Dionysos.
