8 Days Yoga Retreat at Luxury Alpine Chalet in Samoëns, France

Ferme St. Christophe, 856 Route de Peterets, Vallon d'en Bas, Samoens, 74340, France

Rejuvenating Yoga Retreat in the French Alps

Samoens occupies a truly stunning part of the French Alps and offers the perfect base for this yoga retreat. The yoga sessions take place in Ferme St. Christophe’s stunning converted 18th-century barn, or if it is a nice day, you can enjoy a large private garden space.

Classes (one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening) cater to beginners through advanced practitioners. Each day there is also an additional activity in the late morning ranging from meditation to hand balancing classes!

The remainder of the day is free to explore the stunning French Alps, with activities including, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, climbing, via Ferrata, white water rafting, paragliding to name but a few! These activities are not included in the price, however, The Tasty Ski Company can help you organize them for you at an additional cost.

This retreat at Ferme St. Christophe would be categorized as relaxed in nature that can be enjoyed at your own pace. It doesn't have a long daily itinerary packed full of activities such as long meditations and detox programs.

There are plenty of guests who stay just for the amazing food, Ferme St. Christophe's stunning accommodation, and the beautiful mountain surroundings. The yoga sessions are not mandatory, particularly if you fancy a lie-in for a morning!
