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 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.
