Of je nu wilt ontspannen of genieten van de sensatie van mountainbiken of genieten van een prachtige fietstocht, of liever wilt wandelen over bergpassen, of misschien zelfs paragliden of raften, deze retraite heeft voor elk wat wils. Terwijl je yoga combineert met andere activiteiten, geniet je van luxe accomodatie, vul je jouw dagen met zon en voel je je gewoon gelukkig.
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.
On the early evening, you will wind down with another yoga and meditation class, followed by 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 sessions will vary and there will be pranayama and meditation to help you to really let go and enter a state of deep relaxation. The classes are suitable for all abilities and everyone is welcome. Lisa is 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.
The yoga style that Lisa will teach is Vinyasa flow, but Yin and Restorative yoga is also offered. Vinyasa flow is a fusion of various styles of yoga. It concentrates on breath synchronized movement - one movement and one breath creating a union between the two sides, energetic in ways, and simply flowing creating a beautiful balance, leaving you feeling invigorated yet with a deep residing peace.
Lisa’s classes will lead you into a dance with your breath, body, and mind. In this style of yoga, expect to work hard and get warm as you stoke the inner fires and send energy pulsating through the body.
The retreat package includes one guided hike to local glacial lake with mindfulness and a little yoga with a picnic to replace brunch (weather permitted) is included in the price.
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.
Enjoy delicious, healthy homemade food which is an integral part of your yoga retreat. You will need to feel looked after and nourished with all the exercise and mountain air! The food is fresh, local, and seasonal. Included in the retreat package is delicious brunch with granola, eggs, juices and fruit, and a gourmet buffet style evening feast with organic and carefully chosen French wines. The food on the retreats is as important as the yoga. Teas, coffee, cake, and fruit bowl are also available throughout your stay.
Whether you love the thrill of downhill mountain-biking, or enjoy a spot of alpine road biking, or prefer hiking over mountain passes, or maybe even paragliding or white water rafting, there is something for everyone to do during the free time.
You can also relax in the chalet, enjoying the outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, and pretty alpine patio with stunning views. Or you can visit the local spa for many treatments or a swim. There will be a second teacher to offer a fusion of Pilates and yoga and to ensure you get the most from your yoga holiday.
