Introducing “SNOWGA” Yogalife’s first ever Winter yoga retreat!

Believe it or not, yoga and winter sports have a lot of similarities, they both need dedication and passion to progress, they both teach you to be in tune with your body and senses, they bring you into the NOW!

And both experiences are enhanced when surrounded by the power of Mother Nature, even from a physical and mental point of view both passions compliment each other perfectly, enhanced balance, strength, coordination, determination, flexibility, that same sense of achievement and euphoria of smashing out your first inversion is as good as getting down the mountain like a speeding bullet and making it to the bottom in one piece!

Bespoke

Yogalife have designed your yoga sessions to compliment this very special trip. You will receive 2 yoga sessions a day, the morning session will be targeted to activating and lengthening the muscles needed for the mountain & the day ahead, while at the same time working on balance and grounding postures aimed at enhancing and improving your skiing/ snowboarding for the whole of the week. Your evening session will be focused on relaxation and helping your muscles to recover helping them to be ready and pain free for the next day’s snow adventures!

THE VENUE

Imagine a luxury ski in, ski out lodge set in the beautiful French alps, with large open fireplaces, floor to ceiling glass walls to take in the panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains, large en-suite rooms, heated pool, sauna, steam room, and with its very own hot tub nestled on our private balcony! You will be taken care of by our private chef and chalet hosts who will be on hand to serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a delicious 3 course dinner.

Dynamic

Discover the power of the HOF! Yogalife will take your mind and body to another level using the famous Wim Hof techniques!

A day in the life of

Your morning begins with a bespoke ‘snowga’ session in our private yoga room, this session will activate and lengthen the ski specific muscles while at the same time working on balance and grounding postures all aimed at setting you up for a perfect days skiing. We then make our way to breakfast where we will be served fresh juices & a delicious balanced meal for the day ahead. Once fulled we will head to the balcony for our 10 minute Wim Hof ice man session, this will energize the body, and sharpen the mind beyond your imagination, once revitalized and changed into our snow gear we step out of our lodge, clip on your board or skis and hit the slopes, armed with a body and mind that could take on Mount Everest!

You then have the option to ski back to our lodge for afternoon tea or keep on ripping, then maybe after you have soaked in the hot tub or chilled in the pool we will meet for our second yoga session of the day. This session will be focused on easing the muscles that have worked hard for you all day, making use of your aromatherapy massage balm and taking you to a state of complete relaxation and recovery, we will then make our way to dinner and enjoy a glass of wine or two, comparing goggle tans, finishing the day around the open fire chatting to interesting people and listening to stories of the funniest falls & adventures of the day. When you are ready, you float off to your room, totally relaxed ready to sleep and repeat it all again the nextday!
