Dreaming of yoga, skiing and snow-boarding this winter season? Rockin’ the slopes and carving some inspirational yoga into your holiday? Outside there is ice, snow, powder and breathtaking mountains. Inside the beautiful stone and wooden chalet there are log fires, bespoke rooms and congenial communal spaces lit by candles, warm smiles and tall tales of mountain adventures. Delicious vegetarian meals, home made breads, juices and house wines are served daily as the sun rises and sets over the mountains of the Oisans ranges.

This is an ancient village where time has been preserved in the twists of the timbers that support the tumbling tiles and wood piles high beside the cow shed door and yet.. we can potter up the road and with one ski-lift are deposited into the heart of one of Europe’s favourite ski areas, Alpe D’Huez. Pumping pistes and a rock and roll aprés ski make this an area that offers both peace and passion for the ultimate ski-yoga getaway. This is one of only a few yoga ski holidays that is offering single accommodation.

This is our fourth successive year at this incredible venue. The last few years have been sold out, so if you are considering joining us, then please get in touch soon.

THE YOGA

The yoga is inside a lovely hall space. Whilst practically it will be tailored to the needs of a skier or snow-boarder, yoga retreat is also a time to deepen other aspects of your practice. Daily meditation in serene silence, pranayama the science of breath, enjoying the purest of air. Sweet strong intuitive hatha yoga flow to start the day and a shorter quieter evening practice of restorative sahdana to cultivate stillness every other evening. A loving yogic enquiry into the essence of you through a powerful cocktail of asana, mindfulness and breath, this practice has grown from and is inspired by the teachings of Mr. Iyengar, Ashtanga and Swami Sivananda. The shala space looks over the mountain, the eyes drawn towards the rising sun and then to the heart.

THE TEACHER

I am a keeper of words and a lover of stories, philosophy and poetry. My yoga offers clarity, suggests precision, offers strength whilst suggesting softness. Mornings will be dynamic and flowing and evenings restorative. I am senior yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance, I am a teacher of teachers and my quest is that of the pure spirit, my guides are integrity and joy. A strong skier who loves the mountains, this is a dream coming true to offer the clarity of yoga in the serenity of the alps.
