19th - 26th March 2017
SNOW & YOGA
Spend your days exploring the French Alps on your skis or board, before unwinding with a sunset yoga session in the chalet to stretch out those sore muscles. We'll top it off with unlimited French wine, three course evening meals, and of course, plenty of time to enjoy the hot tub and sauna!
New to snowboarding/skiing/yoga? No problem! Coming by yourself? Perfect chance to make like-minded friends. We welcome all levels of snowboarders / skiers, yogis - and wine drinkers…
The retreat will be held in Chalet Pierra Menta in the Paradiski ski area in France, nearest airport is Geneva.
Located in Peisey in the French Alps. Fly to Geneva airport in the morning of the 19th March and we’ll pick you up from the airport, and drop you back at the end of your stay. Make sure you get flights that arrive in the morning of the 19th March, and a flight that departs in the late afternoon on the 26th March to be eligible for airport transfers.
Our chalet is in the heart of the Paradiski area - the 4th biggest ski area in the world! With access to both Les Arcs and La Plagne ski areas, you’ll have heaps of slopes to explore during your stay with us. Head back to the chalet in the afternoon and there’ll be freshly made cake and snacks waiting for you.
Yoga sessions will be held in the evening overlooking the mountains and our wonderful instructor, Miri, will provide you with the perfect practice to stretch out your muscles from the day and re-energise you for tomorrow. Miri is a certified RYT 200 Yoga Teacher. Her unique blend of Hatha, Vinyasa flow and Yin Yoga inspired classes focus on realignment, building strength and flexibility while stilling the mind and releasing stress through meditation and relaxation techniques. Any level of yoga experience is welcome.
