Located on a beautiful quiet green hill near the Rhine, Sutra House opened in 2020, above the village of Riehen near Basel. Designed by long time yoga practitioner and Basel architect Nicolas Hünerwadel in collaboration with my friend and colleague Stephen Thomas. Sutra House features a dedicated yoga shala with wood floor, a meditation room with high gable roof and windows east & west (for sunrise & sunset), a dining room, cosy fireplace area, quiet garden, private terrace, heated outdoor pool, sauna, and steam bath. Massage is available by appointment, and nature walks are easily reached by foot in the nearby forest. For your comfort and privacy, every bedroom has a private bathroom and shower. During our stay, the house is available exclusively to us.
