Nestled amongst the French Alps, lies Ahimsa Retreats. This concept retreat was designed by two good friends who witnessed the transformative effects yoga, diet and mediation can have on everyday life. They invite you to withdraw from the outside world, turn off your internet, put down your phone, and open your eyes as you are led through fast paced Ashtanga flow on the sun drenched decking, guided walks around our local lake, sunset hikes, and outdoor yin yoga sessions, with views to capture your mind and heart.
Ahimsa Retreats have chosen a stunningly located chalet located on the outskirts of morzine, in a little hamlet called Vallee De La Manche. Chalet Chambertin is perfect for getting away from the demands of life and easy to de-stress in this idyllic hideaway.
The bedrooms are situated surrounding a welcoming central lounge area, which is perfect for relaxing in the evenings and chatting over the day. They are all equipped with modern en-suites, comfortable beds and wood surroundings. The en-suites have luxurious Neils Yards toiletries, to bathe in. The accommodation is based on two or three persons sharing a room. Private rooms are also available, with a single supplement price.
On the ground floor, you will find a spacious and light dining area,that opens out onto the front patio, offering the chance for beautiful alfresco dining and the cosy TV area, used for our evening entertainment. Who could forget the relaxing outdoor hot tub to ease the muscles and the indoor sauna area to cleanse the skin after an energising yoga session.
Please note that things in the schedule can change daily.
Coming from an injury prone background Katie doesn't just teach a standard ‘one size fits all’ yoga, she takes a strong interest in adaption and ensuring people work within their own practice, developing techniques and learning tips which can be taken into every class. Injury recovery is a strong interest with katie as is mental recovery.
Now teaching Ashtanga flow and Yin yoga classes which focus on not only building strength and lean muscle, opening up tight areas of our body but also look to allow you to find the mental benefits commonly associated with yoga. Time is given at the start at end of each class to sit and simply breathe. Allowing time to turn inward and calm a busy mind, the classes are challenging, lighthearted, and have a strong base suitable for all levels.
