12th August 2023

We are so excited to be heading back to the French Alps again this summer for our hiking yoga holiday in the French Alps. New for 2023 we are in a new area, this time we are near Moutiers and the three valleys and down the valley from Bourg Saint Maurice where the train arrives.

With jaw-droppingly beautiful views and a sense of peace and stillness in our new location, you will feel at ease, calm, tranquil, and content immediately. This is going to be a glorious week of fresh mountain air, hikes, outdoor yoga and meditation, delicious plant-based food and time out from everyday life.

Your week retreat in the French Alps will be centred around being in nature, hiking to high peaks and enjoying a picnic with stunning views. Take a morning to go to the local farmers market in Moutiers and enjoy an afternoon at the local wellness spa. Your host and chef has opened up her beautiful home to share her love of the mountains, being in nature, food and connection. She will offer a cooking class during the week and share her love of food with you. There is plenty of time to wind down and relax and read a good book or have a massage.

Our chalet and accommodation are situated on a mountain-side in a quaint French mountain village located at 1300m altitude where the air is clean, the sunsets are magical and the birds are near. There are literally jaw-dropping views everywhere you look. Choose to stay in our luxury chalet lovingly restored by the owners or in a local gite next door with a choice of rooms, a living and kitchen area to relax in and the yoga deck.

The hiking yoga experience here is a secret spot for locals and your hosts know their local area thoroughly and will guide you to some beautiful places.  Feel connected to nature and escape the heat of summer and don’t forget about the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. There’s nothing like a hiking yoga holiday to exhilarate and enliven body and mind.

Feel revitalised by yoga on the decking in the morning and in the special yoga shala with all yoga equipment in the evening to unwind and relax. All vegetarian and vegan meals are included in the price and be wowed by your host and chef. We have called this yoga holiday a hiking yoga holiday but it is really also a holiday for real foodies too!

Our Yoga Teachers

Over the 13 years that AY has been organising our bespoke retreats, we have always made sure that we work with exceptional yoga teachers who are dedicated to their practice and live and breathe yoga, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you will be inspired, relaxed and tensions dissolved by the end of your retreat with us.

About the yoga

Morning Class
Our morning classes are held either outside on spacious decking if sunny with views of the valley below or in the beautiful yoga shala.  Awaken your body, pay special attention to warming those muscles, stretching out the legs and building stamina for your day exploring the breathtaking environment.

Evening Class
After your days of hiking and exploring, return to the chalet to unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class in the yoga shala. This gentle session will vary each evening and include pranayama and meditation to help the mind and body really let go and allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation.

Beautiful Moutiers

In summer the alps have very relaxing energy and a slow pace, surrounded by the gorgeous bright colours of spring and summer with wildflowers and wild blueberries contrasting with the snowcapped mountain tops. Anytime in the French Alps in summer is a great time to be there. In fact, July and August are great times to be there to get away from the heat and crowds of the coastline in Europe. It is still possible to enjoy long hikes in peak summer because with altitude it gets cooler. As well as hiking in the summer there are lots of bike tracks for downhill or road cycling, try parapenting or even white water rafting. It can be an active holiday in summer but there is always time to relax in the sunshine and read a good book.
