Yoga Mountain Weekend 28th June

Come and kick start your summer with a nourishing and peaceful weekend of yoga and mountain meandering, in the stunning French Alps. 

The last few retreats over here have been truly magical, cannot wait to delve a little deeper and breathe in that sweet alpine air again this summer with you!

OUR YOGA SHALA
We will be staying in a chalet (Chalet George) in the centre of town, surrounded by the beautiful mountains. 
There are 7 en suite bedrooms – each room with two single beds. The chalet sleeps up to 14 people and has a lovely open plan communal area with outside decking.
Single room supplement is applicable.

THE YOGA
During the mornings, we will be working with a creative and invigorating, vinyasa flow sequence, designed to build heat in the body whilst calming the mind.

The afternoons will consist of mostly restorative stretching as we step back into the more challenging space of stillness.

We will also enjoy a 90 minute workshop lending us time to explore some of the more playful poses in a non-judgmental environment.

All levels are welcome - and I will be on hand to support you in any way possible with your practice and am open to any suggestions should you wish to focus on anything in particular throughout the weekend.

THE FOOD
We have a fantastic, talented chef preparing hearty but healthy brunches, raw and clever afternoon tea nibbles and colourful and scrummy vegetarian dinners on both the Thursday and the Friday. All food locally sourced. All veggie and mostly gluten and diary free (but still filling and tasty I promise.)
Saturday night we will all go out for dinner at a local restaurant (NOT INCLUDED in price.)

THE AREA
Morzine is such a fab alpine town. The mountains as your back garden. In between our yoga gatherings, there is the option of walking, swimming in wild lakes, biking, or lounging around on the sofa with a good book. We have a wonderful local masseuse for those looking for that extra scrummy release.

ROUGH SCHEDULE
08:00 Coffee/ Teas/ Fruits
09:00 - 11:00 Meditation and Dynamic Yoga
11:30 Brunch
Pm: Free time! Walking, Swimming, Sleeping...
16:30 - 18:00 Restorative yoga/ workshop

Ying yang; anti anxiety

to Apr 27

Ying yang; anti anxiety

WE ALL experience levels of anxiety. Whether it is the general day to day worries dealing with work or change, or the more aggressive form that can play some rather imaginative tricks on us and manifest itself in kinda scary physical forms ie, panic attacks, leaving one feeling extremely uncomfortable. 

Our minds are wild and they can play interesting tricks on us. We have between 50,000 - 70,000 thoughts a day, and its the thoughts we choose to put our attention into, that determine our whole belief system/ happiness/ worth etc etc.

I could talk or write about the brain for ages... BUT, I'll save it. Come and join me? Lets tap into the body and the breath and see how it stills the mind. And learn how this yoga thing can really help you work together, WITH anxiety to positively to shape your life, tap into your inner creativity and come out of it all feeling strong minded and fearless. 

This workshop will still be similar to the Seasonal Yin Yang workshops, although more of an emphasis on anti-anxiety techniques through movement, breath and meditation.

Workshop £25.
