Chalet Rosière Yoga Holiday France Program

Outdoor time in the mountains

The first full day will be a grounding day, with extended morning yoga and lots of time spent in the forest. For the following days (between morning and evening yoga) you will have the option of either snowshoe hiking or skiing, or simply resting at the chalet and getting lost in our incredible mountain views. This mountain retreat is all about connecting with the wonder of our mountain surroundings.

Whether that is through movement or rest does not matter. The penultimate day will be a celebration day, with more time spent in the forest, followed by a final beautiful sacred music ceremony. On day eight we’ll send you home with hearts full to bursting.

Meditation, yoga, and sacred music

Energising morning yoga and meditation will warm up key muscle groups and wake up the mind, bringing everything into clarity so that you can enjoy a bold and focused day in the mountains. Relaxing evening yoga will concentrate on deep stretching to release muscle-soreness, and chest openers to release your voice. Kelly’s deep guided meditations will meld blissfully with the sacred music, taking you on an intense relaxation journey over the course of the week.

Voice and inner work will be supported through guided chanting, toning, singing, and breath-work with Moshe and George. This sacred music practice will be woven into deeply relaxing evening yoga and meditation classes in our grand hall next to an open fire. The practice will start gently and build up through the week, culminating in a celebratory sacred music fire ceremony on the final day.

Downtime will be spent in our meditation tipi or watch sunset over snow-capped mountains from our outdoor Jacuzzi, exploring our extensive library in front of a roaring fire, enjoying massage treatments or simply catching up on some much needed R & R.

Included excursions

During this retreat, you will have the opportunity to ski (or alternatively snowshoe hike) in the French and Italian Alps in La Rosière resort. Advanced skiers will have the option of skiing to Italy for lunch. There will also be guided forest excursions on this retreat.
