* GENERAL INFORMATION *
The French Alps are renowned for their meadows of beautiful summer wildflowers, and the Savoie Mont Blanc region does not disappoint. From the 2nd-6th June 2016 we’ll be leading daily excursions from our idyllic rural hideaway in the French Alps in search of Hawksbeard, Selfheal, Tormentil, Vetch, Pansy, Wolfsbane and Rattle (in other words, wildflowers), and we’d love you to join us. The Chalet Rosière Wildflower Walking and Yoga Weekend will take you on a whistle-stop-tour of our favourite petal-laden trails. Expect surprise stretches in stunning locations and plenty of time to watch the world go by. Evenings will be spent practising yoga, meditating, and dining with newfound friends.
Evening yoga and meditation instruction will be provided by talented yoga teacher Laura Thorne, of Love Lemon Tree Yoga. Laura’s classes will begin with a range of breathing exercises and help to leave daily worries at the door. Laura’s approach to yoga will be restorative, helping to lengthen and soothe the muscles after the long day’s hike. Laura will focus on knee and hip strength and alignment in order to noticeably enhance your daily ability and stamina. Together we will focus on a range of postures, building up to a more dynamic energy flow towards the end of the class. Meditative exercises will pay special attention to each muscle group, releasing the tension that can build up from repetitive uphill and downhill motion, and grounding us in the natural beauty we will be witnessing each day.
We’ll be serving delicious, healthy breakfasts and picnics, and a 4-course French Fine Dining set-menu featuring local favourite every evening. Downtime will be spent exploring our local trails, watching sunset over the mountains from our outdoor hot tub/Jacuzzi, making use of our extensive library in front of an open fire, spending time with our talented masseuse and holistic therapy expert, or simply catching up on some much needed R & R.
We hope you can join us for this mountain yoga experience. Wild regards, Chalet Rosière.
