(No availability) 6 Days Blissful Ski, Meditation, and Yoga Holiday in Chamonix, France

Chamonix, Pays du Succ-Blanc, Le Mont-Blanc, Bonneville, Haute-Savoie, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France

Winter Yoga Retreat France

We all need a safe place, a house to grow up with confidence, and a solid but nurturing base. Without a house, we feel unsettled. Paradoxically we can't feel too attached to one place as it limits our freedom and adaptiveness for welcoming new experiences. That is the importance of creating an emotional house a place where we can go to chill out and gather inspiration for our journey ahead.

The blue suite

The bunk rooms

The bunk rooms are an excellent alternative for a group of friends traveling together or for those in search of adventures and serendipity since two of the rooms are bunkhouse suites that can sleep from four to six yogi-skiers. The bunkhouses offer an extra degree of privacy as they are located at the button of the house. It features a private bathroom.

Program

This yoga ski holiday offers an irresistible combo. Although not obvious at first, the practices are incredibly complementary. You can expect combining flying down the piste on skis, snowboard, and cross-country skiing with a full timetable of yoga sessions, a mix that helps with warming up and cooling down and promotes balance and coordination too. The thin air altitude will have less impact on your lung capacity as a result of the pranayama sessions (breathing techniques) each morning during your yoga session.

The visualization in your meditation class will improve your performance outdoors, rather if you are an advanced skier or yogi or a beginner in both or one of the activities. Individuals will be encouraged to listen to their bodies and classes are designed to fit all levels from some gentle poses that gradually can be deepened to packages catering for those with years of practice.

Although after booking the participants will receive a daily schedule, Blue House Yoga will keep in mind that every guest and every day is different. After a few hours, a chemistry will be usually stabilized at the house, allowing to adapt, discuss, and personalize each day. You can have a personalized schedule based on the group's preferences.

Mission

Blue House Yoga believe in the transformative power of a conscious active lifestyle and in the vitality of feeling good, if everything is right inside, the outside will most definitely fall into place. Blue House Yoga mission when designing yoga retreats and workshops is to inspire people to make choices in this direction, having faith in synchronicity. As Carl Jung first explained, there is a meaningful coincidence in our encounters. Synchronicity is an 'acausal connecting' (togetherness) principle. Also, there is something very powerful about breathing and moving together with the same intention.

This retreat will be led by Daniela, her first yoga training was in Brazil with DeRose Method in 2007 where she gained her first teaching experience in 2008 before moving to Europe, firstly teaching in Madrid, and later in England where she resides and completed her 200-hour teacher training. In 2017 combining her passion for travel, sports, and yoga, she designing and taught at six yoga retreats in England, Spain, and Chamonix. She applies in her life and shares with her clients the knowledge of mindfulness and yoga as a way to attain lasting wellness.

From the early age, after being submitted to successful placebo trial Daniela developed a profound interest in approachable spirituality, psychology, and brain plasticity. "I firmly believes in the concept of yoga retreats as it offers immersion and demystify the practice giving participants the opportunity to experience not only asanas (poses/ physical aspect of yoga) but an emotional/mental attitude that in essence is what yoga truly is: A way of living, breathing, thinking and feeling!

Teaching

In Daniela's classes, she applies a creative sequencing combining Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga with a spirit of playfulness to encourage participants of all levels to deepen their practice. Her aim is to help others to thrive by applying methods to encourage self-knowledge, body awareness and creative solutions.

Mind and body

Daniela interested in the connection between mind and body lead her to research into nutrition, sports, performance, and health what consequently lead her to fitness modeling. Vodafone, Technogym, TAG, Qatar Airlines, Princess Cruise and Declathon are a few of the clients.

The passion for traveling are reflected in her blended thematics retreats, including skiing, golf, and creative writing breaks. Currently, she teaches, hosts and organizes wellness trips worldwide. Her clients have described her as warm and encouraging.
