yoga, meditation and hiking retreat in the Alps 

Join us in La Clusaz, French Alps for a week of yoga, meditation and hiking.  This retreat presents the ideal opportunity for an active week with heaps of time to relax and recharge.  With an energising morning practice of Vinyasa Flow, you will be ready to explore the surrounding area.  Guided hikes will be scheduled throughout the week and excursions will include lunch in Annecy.  You may simply want to enjoy the views from the chalet with a good book.  The day will end with a Restorative Yoga Class, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and ready for an evening of local French cuisine and wine. 
Daily meditation classes will be scheduled throughout the week with beginners to meditation welcomed.  A range of meditation techniques will be explored and will include Mantra Chanting, Breathwork and Vipasanna.
This is a small and exclusive retreat, hosting just 8 guests for a friendly atmosphere.
