Based in London, Clive Fogelman has a creative and open-minded approach to yoga and meditation, influenced by his therapeutic work and sporting background. He encourages people to cultivate intuition within their bodies, mindful that all individuals are different and continually evolving. His tailored yoga classes emphasize linking breath and movement to direct attention inward and become more aware of each moment and the unique nature of our own body. Drawing on the parallels between yoga and life, the mat becomes an opportunity for exploration and transformation.
This retreat will take place in Chamonix Mont Blanc, France. Few sights on earth compare to the awesome spectacle of Mont Blanc in the French Alps, the highest peak in Europe. The scenery surrounding the luxury chalet in the Chamonix valley is stunning. Just looking at it stills the mind.
During this retreat, you will be served three daily vegan or vegetarian meals. The quality of the food on the retreat is very important. You will enjoy healthy, nutritional meals carefully chosen by chef to complement the retreat perfectly. The food will be absolutely delicious and mostly vegetarian or vegan, but you can opt for fish or meat when booking your retreat.
There will be one free evening to enjoy a meal at one of the fabulous local restaurants. Please include your dietary requirements in the section provided at checkout. Organic and local produce is used where ever possible.
Chamonix is an extreme sports paradise (for skiing, snowboarding, mountaineering, trail running, walking, cycling, mountain biking, paragliding, wing suit flying, and more) but many people go there 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.
You will have enough free time on the retreats 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, but it is recommended viewing it from the highest cable car in Europe, the Aiguille du Midi (3,842 meters). There, you will find "Step into the Void", one of Chamonix’s most recently added attractions; a glass-sided box with a view of Mont Blanc to your left and a 1,000-meter 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.
You will have a full body massage included in the package and a full day at a wonderful spa just over the border in Italy. You will also have the access to use the hot tub, pool, steam room, and sauna at the chalet.
