THE ACCOMMODATION

Staying in the beautiful Chalet Belle Chery, located just outside of Morzine in the hamlet of Cote D’Abroz, this area is a tranquil haven in the mountains. High up on the hill, we have amazing views over the valley which we can see from the deck where, on warmer days, we will practice morning Yoga, and in the evenings be able to enjoy the hot tub and watch the World go by - it truly is a magical place.

SNOWSHOEING

With Simone leading the way through the mountains, we will be heading out for daily guided hikes in this expansive area (don’t worry, there’s a 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 environment that it creates. Expand your navigational skills and understanding of the mountains as Simone shares her knowledge and experience throughout the days in the most inspiring places.

A certain level of fitness is required to feel comfortable snowshoeing for 5 days. If you have any queries you can contact Simone directly at info@magicalsnowtreks.com


YOGA

As a Yoga teacher I have experience leading classes from the Canadian Rockies, to the Himalayas, and now the French Alps! Grow your Yoga practice with 2 hours of Yoga a day. The mornings will begin with a Vinyasa Flow as we awaken the body and mind together. Moving with the breath, we'll begin to explore the body, stretching and strengthening the physical body as we move deeper within. In the afternoon, upon our return back to the chalet, we’ll unwind with a restorative Yoga session (Yin or mellow) to warm and stretch out our bodies, as we wind down and enjoy the last of the winter sun.

We will practice Pranayama (breath work), Asana (physical postures), and Meditation, throughout the week, and begin to delve a little deeper into the Self during this time we have carved out for ourselves.

Whether you're a seasoned Yogi, or a complete beginner, the classes will be adjusted to suit your level!

THE FOOD

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!

Here are some words from two of our culinary wiz’s, Beth and Gus (pictured below):

”We tread lightly. Our menu and product choices are made with the planet in mind. As much as we can:
We avoid using plastic packaging.
We use local dairy produce.
We have a wonderful allotment.
We shop at the local markets.
We forage for seasonal fruit.
We’re definitely not perfect, but we believe small actions can make a big difference.”

WHY CHOOSE THE MOUNTAIN SOUL SERIES?

When was the last time you took a trip that truly allowed yourself the space to unwind, relax and explore?
Yoga retreats have an amazing way of refreshing your perspective and shifting your patterns of behaviour, giving yourself the freedom you need to re-align and fill up with joy!

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 snowshoeing in the great outdoors, meditation and guided visualisations, a complimentary massage/reflexology session, down time for yourself and incredible food.
