THE MOUNTAIN SOUL SERIES
MYSELF AND THE WONDERFUL SIMONE SIMPSON, IML AND OWNER OF MAGICAL SNOW TREKS, INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN THIS JOURNEY OFF THE MAT, AND INTO THE MOUNTAINS. A SERIES OF EVENTS, AND RETREATS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THAT WILL COMBINE HIKING OR SNOWSHOEING WITH YOGA, IN A SEAMLESS BLEND, IMMERSING US INTO TO THE MOUNTAINS HERE IN THE FRENCH ALPS.
Morzine - Chamonix | Aug 5-8
Join us on a journey through the beautiful French Alps from our home town of Morzine, to the base of the highest mountain in Europe - Mont Blanc.
Over three nights and four days, we will meander through valleys, climb over cols and journey into the wilderness. With daily Yoga and meditation in the most beautiful spaces, and mind blowing views, this is a once in a lifetime trip.
Following the GR5 (Grand Randonnee or Big Walk!) we start our journey in the open pastures of Vallee de la Manche, and make our way through the beautiful mountains of Samöens, Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, Pointe de Sales, Col de Brevant and finally down into Chamonix. Along the way we’ll share morning yoga sessions, sunset meditations, nourishing food and lots, and lots of laughs.
On our final day we have time to explore the infamous mountain town of Chamonix, before heading back to Morzine or on to your next adventure!
Summer Roots Retreat - Morzine | Aug 17-24
A week long Yoga and hiking retreat in the gorgeous mountains of Morzine. Allow yourself the time to reset and re-root, as we leave the material World behind and dive into nature.
We have created a bespoke, week-long schedule that moves and flows with purpose. Building from our roots, through grounding and nurturing, up to our crown - finding the freedom within to open up, realigning with the rhythm of nature.
Staying in the beautiful Chalet Fleur, located just outside of Morzine towards Le Grand Terche, this area is a tranquil haven in the mountains. With a stream flowing just meters below the huge deck where we will practice morning Yoga surrounded by trees and forest, it truly is a magical place.
With Simone leading the way through the mountains, we will be heading out for daily guided hikes in this expansive area (optional day off!). Starting gently and building up our stamina, we’ll move at the pace of nature, connecting and learning about this incredible mountain area and the flora and fauna living here. Expand your navigational skills and understanding of the mountains as Simone shares her knowledge and experience throughout the days in the most inspiring places. Yoga will be taken out into the mountains, or upon our return back at the chalet, as we wind down and enjoy the last of the sun.
Culinary goods will be brought to us by our amazing Mountain Soul Series chefs. Food lovers, adventure seekers, and environmentally conscious humans, they will be cooking up a storm and providing us with the tastiest nourishment for the body and soul. All food is sourced with as little impact as possible, so expect lots of local veggies and cheeses, from the markets and fromageries in the area!
Allow yourself the time to unwind at the end of each day in the outdoor hot tub, or around the campfire in the evenings as we round off the days watching the sun go down. Meeting like minded people, the sense of community and connection away from the rush of everyday is something to revel in and enjoy.
Expect lots of yoga, guided hikes in the great outdoors, wild water swimming, meditation and visualisations, a complimentary massage/reflexology session, down time for yourself and incredible food.
Join us this Summer to root down, and rise up, to find your true self.
Winter Revival Retreat - Morzine | Dec 7-14
A Winter break to blow away the cobwebs and feel revived. Join us in the beautiful Chalet Belle Chery in Côte-D’Arbroz, just a few minutes outside of Morzine, and reap the benefits of a Winter retreat.
This week long trip will include daily Yoga and snowshoeing, as we head into the great outdoors and find beauty in the frozen World. Moving through a unique schedule to flow with the season, we have curated each day to move on from from the next, bringing awareness of the mountains around us, as well as within.
Explore this amazing area and hear the crunch of snow beneath your feet as we walk through the magical landscapes of the French Alps blanketed in white. Then return to our luxury chalet to warm your toes by the fire, nourish yourself with good food, and move your body to release tension and truly relax through the practices of yoga and meditation.
Simone and Emily will guide you through this Winter get-away allowing you the time to tune in to yourself, enjoy the mountains and explore your inner World.
