What do I need to bring to Inspire?

Ideally your own yoga mat plus any other equipment you like to use. Blocks and bolsters will be available for some workshops/ateliers. You can rent or buy a mat from us if you do not bring your own.

What about insurance, currency & language?

Please ensure you have adequate personal health and travel insurance. Inspire is not covered on your behalf and all activities, whether yoga or more general mountain sports must be undertaken at your own risk.

Currency is the Swiss Franc although some businesses may also accept payment in Euros. Most restaurants and shops take Maestro and Visa and Mastercard credit cards. AMEX is less widely accepted. We advise cash payments in some smaller cafés/restaurants. Verbier is French speaking although as an international destination, English is also widely spoken.

Health & safety

Verbier is generally renowned as a “safe” resort although of course we advise you not to take undue risks.

Mountain safety is an important factor and not to be underestimated, particularly regarding fast changing weather conditions. Please always check the weather and conditions when heading out on a hike/exploration and check with local specialists in case of any concerns.

Can I bring my children to Inspire?
