The beautiful Chalet Serena is situated high above on the valley floor, with the stunning views of the magnificent Mont Blanc mountain range. The chalet has seven bedrooms, all designed and equipped to a very high standard. All bedrooms can be shared twins or doubles with a super king size bed and all have an ensuite bathroom, LCD TV, and DVD player. The rooms also have a south facing balcony where several of the rooms have a hammock.

The chalet has its own spa with a steam and sauna room, treatment room for the on-site massages, huge living area with double height picture windows, and the ideal yoga deck, complete with Jacuzzi and pool. The chalet is surrounded by breath-taking scenery.

During your retreat, there will be an excellent full-time chef, chalet host, and driver that will provide catering, cleaning, driving, and 24-hour assistance.

The experienced and intuitive instructor for this retreat, Naomi Hayama, will guide you through an inspiring week of yoga. Specializing in Hatha, interweaving Vinyasa flow, Restorative, Yin, and Nidra yoga, Naomi has designed a wonderful week of classes, including a very special high mountain yoga session. This program also intends to give each individual the full benefits of the beautiful Alpine environment.

Naomi’s classes will build strength and flexibility to aid the body during the incredible mountain hikes. Through relaxation and meditation, she will help calm the mind and aim to focus your awareness, allowing you to really appreciate the nature around you. Traditional asana (posture) and pranayama (breathing) practices will help you feel balanced, energized, and grounded.

During the meet and greet, Bluerise Retreats will go over the schedule and weather report for the week so the schedule can be adjusted a little bit if necessary (hiking on sunny or slightly overcast days). Bluerise Retreats will fit the massages around the schedule.

Exploring Chamonix

Chamonix is a paradise for extreme sports such as skiing, snowboarding, mountaineering, trail running, walking, cycling, mountain biking, paragliding, wingsuit flying, and more. But, many people come here just to admire the spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers, wander around the shop-lined streets, and enjoy the warmth of a nice coffee shop or restaurant.

In this retreat, you will have enough free time to explore Chamonix and experience all the cool stuff it has to offer. The main attraction being Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe at 4,810 meters. The views of the Mont Blanc massif are spectacular from the valley floor.

Bluerise Retreats recommends viewing it from the highest cable car in Europe, the Aiguille du Midi (3,842 meters). Here, you will find ‘Step into the Void’, one of Chamonix’s most recently added attractions. It is a glass-sided box with a view of Mont Blanc to your left and a 1,000 meters drop beneath your feet.

Another popular place to visit is the impressive Mer de Glace glacier (sea of ice), which is accessed by the Montenvers funicular train. From the top, you can descend to the ice caves via cable car and a series of walkways and steps.
