12th – 19th October 2019
This retreat is truly perfect for mountain-loving yogis; set amongst the breath-taking alpine scenery of the Haute Savoie, it offers a complete yoga immersion combined with a chance to practice yoga surrounded by dramatic mountains, waterfalls and charming alpine villages.
It will be a wellness experience to nourish both body and soul – an opportunity to “drink in” all the beauty around, delve more deeply into your practice and reaffirm your commitment to being the best you can be! The retreat offers twice-daily “liquid flow” yoga, with plenty of time in between to explore the surrounding region and experience the very special vibe of autumn in the alps.
We’ll be staying in a charming, traditional alpine chalet that has been lovingly renovated to provide a high standard of comfort in very individual rooms – all sympathetically furnished to retain the original character of the property. The chalet is situated in a beautiful and peaceful alpine valley, near to the village of Samoëns, surrounded by a cirque of alpine peaks and spectacular waterfalls. I know this area well and so I will be able to suggest walks and runs of all levels from valley trails to accessible mountain summits. I also plan a full-day mountain excursion at some point during the week.
Those who have already established a yoga practice will gain the most benefit from this immersion as the focus will be on providing structured teaching to intermediate students looking for progression. So, you can expect an uplifting week that will inspire you to challenge yourself, whilst also allowing time for you to breathe in mountain air, reconnect with nature and benefit from the mind/body connections revealed by a pure diet and conscious movement. The retreat is also structured to allow you time for personal reflection and contemplation as well as a chance to curl up with a good book in the cosy chalet!
You’ll go home feeling restored and empowered to take a more intuitive approach both on and off your mat!
