Ski Yoga Alpine Retreats in Alpe d’Huez France, 19 – 26 January, 26 January – 2 February, 2 – 9 February
Do you dream of combining the passion of skiing and snowboarding with the restorative balm of yoga and meditation? Rockin’ the slopes and carving some inspirational yoga into your holiday? Then come along to our Ski Yoga Alpine retreat.
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 the life affirming backdrop of the alpine scenery make this a retreat that offers both peace and passion for the ultimate ski-yoga getaway. Our ski yoga space looks over the mountains, with eyes drawn towards the rising sun or moon, high above the valley floor.
This environment is perfect to breathe deeply of life, to restore and revitalise as the practice soothes tired muscles, calms the mind and prepares the body lovingly for the skiing in your day ahead.
The company is warm, like minded and welcoming, with participants returning annually to experience the dream fusion of a holiday that facilitates skiing in one of the world’s top resorts and the yoga instruction of a senior inspirational teacher.
The village is a spring board into the ski resort of Alpe D’Huez – one fast lift takes you into the heart of the ski area. If you are new to skiing, you can book ski school or private instruction and can enjoy staying local as you learn this exhilarating sport.
This ski yoga retreat is hosted by folk who are passionate about yoga, snow sports and excellent hospitality. There are rare single room options and no time wasting transfers to the lifts required each day. The views from this chalet are utterly breathtaking.
The Euphoria Emotional and Physical Transformation Retreat is our signature intensive retreat and aims to improve your overall state of emotional wellbeing and bring harmony to your life.
By addressing all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual – it assists your self-reflection and contemplation and enhances your evolutionary journey towards self-awareness and illumination.
The Ancient Hellenic and Chinese civilisations observed the cosmos and human organisms and developed philosophies that in detail describe both. Most of the principles of these philosophies have been confirmed by today’s science.
Euphoria Retreat’s concept stands on these two pillars of ancient wisdom, which describe how energy flows in our body and how the body is influenced by the cosmos, giving guidance that derives from thousands of years of experiences on how to live a euphoric and healthy life.
Modern evidence-based science provides clear answers on whether something is valuable or not, and gives information on a biochemical level regarding what is needed to support wellbeing – vitamins, minerals etc – and uses medicine to cure and set a safe basis for complementary and alternative medicine.
In this way, Euphoria Retreat has developed wellbeing programmes that centre around the five elements of earth, fire, water, wood and metal and their related energies and emotions, with treatments designed to bring balance by addressing the three levels of existence (emotional, physical and spiritual).
On a daily basis, you will explore your relationship to each element (water, wood, fire, earth, metal), with physical/energy treatments as well as in intimate group sessions. The program also includes nutritional assessment through innovative technologies.
The retreat will be a weekend of pure connection, healing and connection. Open to men and women, beginners to meditation and those with experience. When is the last time you really stopped and listened to the whispering of your soul? It is there, trying to get your attention and trying to show you the way to live your truest, happiest, fulfilled, loving self.
Denise Richardson and Sally Davis have created this heart nourishing, soul-centering retreat, away from the noise of the everyday life so you can begin the journey back to your soul. A safe space to listen into your true self, your essence, your spirit, the truth of where you are at right now.
The weekend includes journaling. releasing rituals, morning sun meditation, mirror work & self awareness for inner healing, intentions & affirmations work for the year ahead, journey to the Soul Meditation, intuitive card readings, heart centered meditation, creative vision boards to attract your hearts desires, guided mindful countryside walk and gratitude rituals
Denise Baldock and Sally Davis. Both are fully qualified and trained meditation coaches, Reiki Healers & energy workers with full insurance and over 10 of years experience between them.

We’re returning to our annual retreat in Venice, Italy – but this time to ring in the New Year! This enchanting city is the backdrop of a magical celebration – finding presence in each day and setting intentions for the year to come through daily yoga, creativity workshops, day trips, spas, and gourmet meals.
Come away with us for a week in the magical part of Italy known as Venezia! Venice is a place unlike any other in the world, and to see it is to transport yourself back to the days of Casanova, masked balls, and Carnevale. Oh, but there is so much more to Venice than what the usual tourist visit can offer. Our yoga retreat will allow for a deeper knowledge of Venice, its canals, and neighboring islands.
We’re so excited to offer this retreat during a unique time to visit this amazing city – as it’s out of the main tourist season so you can get a deeper view into the local life, as well as a chance to ring in the NEW YEAR in such a magical and inspiring place.
This is one of our continued collaborations with Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with art projects in sketching and “ifonography” (smartphone photography) throughout the week.
Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the calm in the magic that is Venice – and then these art projects will help us find news ways of seeing – both yoga and art working together to find FOCUS in the many layers of history, water, and beauty of the Venetian landscape.
All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, non-intimidating and personal experience.
