When my French colleagues, Claire and Romain, asked me to host a yoga and hiking retreat in the mountains of the French Alps, I jumped at the chance. I already host yoga retreats for them over in Central America at Los Clavos Surf Camp. And, while I love the beach enough to spend 8 months of the year in flip flops, a mountain yoga retreat with heaps of hiking in the French Alps is a whole new concept for me.
The mountain chalet boasts incredible views of the surrounding French Alps. It is an ideal space for a yoga retreat for those of us who love the great outdoors and hiking. I know it’s going to be a sensory overload: the view of the French Alps during yoga, the smell of the countryside when we are out hiking, the taste of breakfast croissants and good wine in the evening (yes, it’s going to be very French.)
The morning yoga practice will look out over the French Alps and will be an energising Vinyasa Flow Class. During the day, we will go hiking in the French Alps, maybe do some yoga in our hiking boots, enjoy a picnic lunch before returning to the chalet for yoga to restore after the hiking. Evenings will be spent in the chalet with a 3 course dinner accompanied by French wine of course! I am also really excited to check out nearby Annecy and Annecy Lake. Between all the hiking and yoga, we’ll go for lunch and have a look around this popular little spot in the French Alps.
I really hope that some of my amazing yoga students from far and wide will retreat with me to this incredible location in the French Alps. Come and share this opportunity, if only to see me out of beach yoga attire….hello hiking boots.
