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 yoga space looks over the mountains, with eyes drawn towards the rising sun or moon, high above the valley floor.

New Year Retreats in Ubud: 5 Day Rejuvenation & Yoga Retreat at Adiwana Resort Jembawan
Treat yourself to more than just pampering and spa experiences at the boutique wellness hotel, Adiwana Jembawan. This five day retreat starts with a hatha yoga class, pranayama and meditation. During the program your meals and spa treatment will be based on your wellness consultation result with the Ayurvedic Practitioner used to diagnose your Dosha.
Rejuvenation is often defined as the reversal of the ageing process. This contrasts with ‘life extension’ strategies that attempt to combat the causes of ageing in order to slow it down. Because rejuvenation is the reversal of ageing, the means employed to achieve it focus on repairing the damage caused by ageing and replacement of damaged tissue with new tissue.
While rejuvenation is one means to achieve extension of life, rejuvenation itself fundamentally affects a person by restoring aspects of youthfulness from the inside out. This retreat program is designed to reverse biological ageing and focuses on the quality of life instead of the mere prolongation of it. It is about enhancing your experience of life itself. You can also customise your own retreat package based on your personal needs both as an individual or part of a group.
