The mountain chalets are carefully selected for their comfort, tranquility and convenience to all the amenities. The chalets change according to your location, they can be cleverly tucked away, near the action and all have breathtaking views of the mountains.

Two days will be spent at St Foy, the other four days will be spent in the ski areas of Val DIsere and Tignes and Les Arcs, so you can experience 3 different ski resorts and spending 2 days at each helps you to get to know the areas. The chalet hosts will brief you in the morning with a piste map of each ski area so that you can explore the slopes with confidence. Or you can stay in St Foy if you prefer.
The chalet for 2016 is absolutely gorgeous! Set amongst the pines just outside the village of St Foy, it is tranquil and peaceful, so after a great day on the mountain, relax with a sauna followed by the outdoor hot tub under the stars!

Prepare for your day of snowboarding or skiing with a dynamic yoga class to awaken the mind and bring heat to cold muscles. These sessions pay special attention to warming the body, stretching out the legs and building stamina for your turns and powder runs.

After your full day skiing or snowboarding, return to your mountain yoga retreat to unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class. This gentler, slightly longer session will vary each evening and include pranayama and meditation to help mind and body really let go and allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation after a hard day in the mountains. Afterwards, pamper yourself with a massage, have a well deserved hot tub or simply enjoy a good glass of wine in front of the fire while we make you a hearty dinner.
If you need to hire all the skiing / boarding kit, Adventure Yogi can arrange this for you. They will also book any ski / boarding lessons you require, and organize getting your ski pass.
You are in one of the most easterly and amazingly beautiful parts of France, in the Alps right up by the Italian border. The Tarentaise valley is renowned for its snow-sure winter resorts. The chalets are within easy reach of the big names - Val dIsre, Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosire with its link to the Italian La Thuile - as well as Sainte Foy Tarentaise itself.
Adventure Yogi needs to keep a bit hush about this area, as Sainte Foy is the best kept secret in the French Alps. For all levels, it is ideal for beginners and its also where local ski instructors choose to ski on their days off as its more peaceful than surrounding resorts. It offers a mixture of terrain for all ability levels and disciplines. Its loved by off-piste skiers and boarders for its exciting powder fields, as much as its loved by beginners who appreciate its wide, quiet pistes to learn on.

The food will be fresh, nutritious, vegetarian, and hearty. Brunch is a choice of granola, fabulous local breads and croissants, eggs, juices and fruit, and dinner is a three course veggie feast with local wines. Dinner is served over 6 nights as the chefs have a night off and you can go out and enjoy the local cuisine.
Non-skiers will find plenty to enjoy too. There are well-marked trails for snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing or simply hiking which offer breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains.
