During the retreat, you will be accommodated at La Chaumiere, a luxurious mountain chalet with breathtaking views in a peaceful location in Chatel. There are all the comforts you will need to relax with the comfiest of beds, crisp linen sheets, huge soft sofas, log fires, and above all, a welcoming atmosphere.


Begin your day the yogi way with a morning yoga class to warm you up ready for the day ahead. Then there’s a delicious healthy brunch, followed by your own time to do whichever activity you desire, from hiking or biking across snow-peaked mountains, wild swimming in glacial lakes or in an outdoor pool with views to astound you, or white water rafting.

If you just prefer to relax, the chalet has a sauna, an outdoor spa and a lovely terrace with mountain views, there is also a fabulous spa in the village center with thermal waters and spa treatments. Early evening you will wind down with another yoga and meditation class, followed by a fabulous home-cooked food.

After dinner, chill out in the hot tub underneath the stars then snuggle down for a well deserved and blissful sleep. The morning sessions are a more dynamic practice to help you stretch, lengthen and warm the body in preparation for a day of adventure. Special focus is on the legs in order to build stamina for those hill-walks or other activities.

The evening class is gentle Yin yoga to stretch out and relax sore muscles and joints. The session will vary and included are pranayama and meditation to help you to really let go and enter a state of deep relaxation. The classes are suitable for all abilities, everyone is welcome. Lisa practiced at adapting the class for everyone’s level.

The asanas and meditation will help increase oxygen flow, balance, clarity and promote a peaceful mind. Nina, the lovely second yoga teacher on the retreat, will be offering an alternative class if you prefer a slower-paced class and co-teaching with Lisa in the evening classes. Total body workout to stretch, tone and elongate the muscles. Working with the core, increasing balance and improving stamina.

Retreat location

Chatel is a beautiful village nestled within the valleys of the Porte du Soleil area in the French Alps. It's a picturesque and traditional resort, sporting panoramic views of the infamous Mont Blanc and the Dent du midi. It is located in the region of Haute Savoie, and on the French border with Switzerland.

Ideally placed right in the middle of the Portes du Soleil, Chatel is the gateway to a marvelous summer playground. You will never forget the miles of open spaces surrounding the meadows, from where you can head off into the middle of nowhere.
