Uplift your heart and explore the stunning environment of the French Alps. Reconnect your mind and body and feel inspired through this wonderful mix of nature, yoga and hiking. Our program offers you daily yoga sessions along with guided hikes in which a fully qualified mountain guide will lead you along the best routes, showing you amazing viewpoints out the unique alpine wildlife.

We will be staying in a beautiful old farmhouse located within walking distance of the historically listed village of Samoens with a brand new swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. Our program is completely free and “go with the flow”. There is plenty of time to relax by the pool, read a book, pamper yourself with massage, explore the village of Samoëns or go and discover some of the more adventurous activities like parapenting, rafting,…

Whether you are a beginner or advanced yogi, a seasoned adventurer, a hiker or just a nature lover, this is the holiday for you.

About our yoga

We design our yoga sessions specifically to help you connect with your body so that you can become more conscious, gain strength and flexibility and feel more alive! Our lessons will help you rediscover the connection so that you can increase the strength of your immune system and feel more peaceful and balanced.

Our morning sessions are more dynamic and consist of flowing Vinyasa style sequences combined with Ashtanga yoga. Annick from Yoganic Moves will lead these morning sessions.

In the evening we offer Restorative Yin Yoga. Here you can take things a little slower but at the same time strengthen and lengthen your joints and the deeper connective tissues of the body.

Mindfulness is a core focus throughout the week and our aim is to help you really enhance your self awareness so that you can not only feel empowered but enjoy a greater level of self acceptance and compassion towards yourself and others.

The Yin Yoga is particularly recommended for stretching out the muscles and joints after the hiking. We would like to stress that you don’t need to be really bendy in order to take part in our yoga!

NOT INCLUDED

  • Our Yoga holiday does not include flights or holiday insurance so we recommend that you take out your own personal cover.
  • Getting there
  • Samoens is only a 20 minute drive from the motorway exit near the TGV train station of Cluses and only 55km from the international airport Geneva. From Belgium you can book flights with Brussels Airlines and Easyjet and take a TGV to Geneva or Cluses.

Accomodation

We will be staying in a beautiful old farmhouse located within walking distance of the historically listed village of Samoens. On site is a brand new swimming pool and decked area, a sauna and hot tub and numerous spaces for you to just chill and relax. There is also a beauty and massage room where Debbie, our beauty therapist is on hand to offer a range of treatments from lymphatic drainage massages to pedicures and facials.

The farmhouse is made up of 3 appartments each with beautiful bedrooms which have either twin or superking beds and ensuite bathrooms. Each appartment also has it’s own living room area and kitchen facilities where you can store any snacks and make a cup of tea or coffee. Breakfasts and dinners will all be served in a common area.

THE HIKING

  • A trip to the stunning classified nature reserve, Sixt Fer à Cheval.
    On this part day hike, we go to Sixt Fer à Cheval, which is just a 15 minute drive from the village. Our hike takes us to the so called “Bout du Monde” translated as “End of the world”. Here you can take a dip in the ice cold pools at the base of the waterfall and enjoy the amazing health benefits of the negative ions which spray from the waterfall. We finish with our picnic at the parc and can take a coffee in the local restaurant.
  • Another half day hike with viewpoints of the Mount Blanc (including packed lunch).
These part day hikes take place after the morning yoga sessions and breakfast and include a packed lunch.
  • A full day hike with a qualified mountain guide (including packed lunch). This hike will take place on a morning when there is no yoga session.
On these hikes the pace is fairly leisurely. We allow time to rest and enjoy the stunning scenery. The focus will be more on appreciating the unique alpine wildlife along with the help of our fully qualified guides, who live in the area, rather than the challenge of reaching the top of the mountain!

Annick (Yoganic Moves)

Annick is a fully qualified Ashtanga and vinyasa teacher and inspirator of Yoganic Moves. She loves to encourage her yogis to just take one step towards doing a pose that they may feel is impossible or too difficult. She believes that by doing this, you can open up a world of possibilities, and also you get to realise that you are stronger and more courageous than you think you are.

In doing this, Annick helps you make your yoga practice become a metaphor for your life. Finding the balance in your yoga practice, acceptance of where you are at each moment and having enough perserverance to continue when things are more difficult. Annick invites you to take your practice off the mat in real life.
