I am excited to offer you my annual Iyengar Yoga Retreat, a unique retreat experience in the magical French Alps, living off grid surrounded by the majestic mountains and sleeping under the stars with the sounds of the gorge, eagles and crickets piercing the silence. This is a real retreat away from the way we usually live, of being constantly plugged-in but disconnected from one another. There is a simplicity to the rhythm of the days that are determined by the two daily yoga practices, preparing and eating food together, having space to read, contemplate, converse. walking on the mountainside's, collecting and chopping wood to tend the fires. Being in a "family" of other like minded people, sharing life experiences and stories. This yoga retreat will give you an opportunity to find yourself, align your mind, body and soul.
About Les Fraissies
We will be staying at Les Fraisses, a traditional alpine building that was originally handmade from trees cut down in the surrounding forest over a century ago. The purpose built, fully equipped Iyengar yoga studio was the original barn and has a beautiful rustic feel to it. This is a place of outstanding beauty on the side of a mountain, that invites you to pause just to gaze in wonder at the ever changing beauty of nature. The building is surrounded by alpine woodland, wild flowers and a gorge. As you walk around the perimeter, you are rewarded with views of Mont Blanc. The village of Praz sur Arly is within easy transfer of Geneva airport but feels like a million miles away from the busyness. Accommodation is in teepees or tents nestled amongst the pine trees surrounding the house. This is a retreat for those who wish to un plug for a few days, connect with nature and are happy sleeping under canvas and being part of a community. You will be asked to contribute by means of helping to prepare the meals, washing up or collecting fire wood as part of the experience. There will be plenty of free time between practices to relax or explore or swimming in an alpine lake .
