study in our winter wonderland
Dubbed the “Aspen of Japan”, Niseko is a powder hot spot, home to some of the best ski slopes in the world. It is known as one of the snowiest resorts on the planet, and has been credited as the #1 Ski Resort in Asia. The resort includes a bustling village at its base with lively nightlife and shopping, but is most famous for its highly coveted “champagne powder” – snow that is very light, dry, and smooth, arguably the best for skiing.
Along with your yoga studies, you will have plenty of time to take advantage of the things that make Niseko special: the natural hotsprings (or onsen in Japanese), Japan’s world-famous cuisine, and the endless powder days. The soothing onsens are recognized for their purifying health benefits, and students are encouraged to use them as often as possible! There are many to choose from in the area.
During the course you will call the cozy and friendly Powder Yoga studio your home! Your rest days during the course will be flexible, and we will make sure to keep track of the weather, and schedule in your days off whenever there are fresh tracks on offer. There will also be many opportunities to take what you learn in the classroom, and transfer this out it into the world and your daily life in Niseko.
