About Beauty of the French Alps
If you haven’t heard of Yoganic Moves, just wait. You will! It should become one of the most popular yoga adventures talked about in both yoga circles and for travelers seeking travel with a nature/spiritual twist. Annick Cuvelier and Michele Willmott have put together a winning combination of yoga, coaching, if you choose, and adventuring. An hour and 45 minutes of yoga bookends a series of beautiful days. Annick is an outstanding and talented yoga teacher. Their most recent trip based in Sameons, France included choices to hike the French Alps, white water raft, parapente in addition to practice your yoga. Yoga sessions were appropriate for all levels. I enjoyed being able to self assess how much activity I felt comfortable doing and appreciated how those choices were completely honored. Michele made one on one coaching available and I found it very useful. Meals were provided and they were unbelievably delicious, nutritious and creative! The love and care they were prepared with could nearly be tasted! That is a credit to Debbie, Tony and Libby who designed and ran the comfortable chalet at the foot of the Alps we resided in while there. This trip fills the senses. The beauty of nature surrounds and inspires. This vacation is one big buffet of soul food!!! E.V. San Diego – US – July 2015

She is warm and friendly and very easy to get along with. Michele is lovely, so easy to talk to and have a laugh with. The rest of my group were a lovely bunch of people.

The connections and how personable they are, showed that they were truly interested in taking care of us and knowing us. The location is breathtaking, the yoga designed around the group’s needs and interests and the hiking was challenging, yet accomplished.

About Beauty of the French Alps
“I think yoga and walking in the Alps is a fabulous combination of activity with just the right balance of both. Although I am a yoga beginner, Annick is a wonderful teacher, the classes were relaxing, sometimes challenging, but always really enjoyable. I feel genuinly energised by the week and the time I spent with Annick, Michele and my fellow yogi’s.” Jill – Scotland – June 2015

About Beauty of the French Alps
” I had a very pleasant yogaholiday, from the moment Matt picked us all up at the airport. After one hour drive, we were welcomed by charming Michele who showed us our flats with ensuite bedrooms for each. The flat has a well equipped kitchen where we made ourselves tea or coffee (for free). My flat mate really enjoyed the icecrushing machine. We did not have to cook for ourselves. We had gorgeous 2 course dinners and lunches and packed lunches on the hikes which took us to some amazing scenery in the Alps.
Yoga sessions in the morning and before dinner were excellent, adaptations to the asana’s were shown or explained, so nobody felt excluded. We all made progress in our yogapractice. It was a trip to never forget. Thanks Annick and Michel for this inspired, well-organised trip.” Petra – Belgium – June 2015

About Yogacruising Turkey
“This was my first yoga holiday and it will definitely not be my last! I enjoyed the daily practice in different settings. We practised yoga on the boat, on land, even once we discovered a forest where we enjoyed an early morning session. This is a holiday where you immediately feel disconnected from daily life. The classes were really high level and the professionalism of Annick makes you stand in positions you would never have considered as possible. Thanks!”
Lieselotte Van Caenegem – Belgium – May 2015

About Yogacruising Turkey
“I was really pleased with the daily yoga sessions, I liked that some were on the boat and some were on land, it kept things interesting and challenging practicing in different environments. It was also beautiful doing yoga in such peaceful locations and at sunset. I feel I improved my practice during the week with Annick’s guidance, I could go at my own pace and there was time for individual help with personal difficulties.” Nadia El Ferdaoussi – Ireland – May 2015

About Beauty of the French Alps
“The accommodation was perfect: very clean, modern, and has a spacious bathroom. The owners were lovely and helped wherever they could. Also, they cooked delicious healthy food for us.

The yoga classes were perfect as well. Harder classes in the mornings to strengthen the core muscles, while in the evenings more relaxation and meditation. We had a lovely spacious yoga room with a stunning view; however, when it was sunny we decided spontaneously that we would prefer to have our class outside at the lake or the pool.

The hiking trips were enjoyable and we had lovely views and could even see the Mont Blanc. There were easy hikes, but also very challenging ones and everyone could decide which one fits best.

Overall, I can highly recommend the retreat. Everything was very well planned and organised and there was enough time to relax. I would always go there again. A big thanks to Annick and Michelle who organised the trip.” Andrea – UK

“The holiday “Beauty of the French Alps” was extremely well organised and I felt really well looked after by Michelle and Annick for the whole week. The accommodation, the yoga, the coaching, and the hiking were all first class. The food at the chalet was really tasty and yet healthy, I would love to get some of the recipes. Also, the chalet was pretty close to Samoen, just a 10-minute walk up the road. All and all, a great trip!” Susan F. – France

“This holiday “Beauty of the French Alps” surpassed all expectations and is a must for anyone who wants to experience hiking, yoga, great food, superb accommodation or just the beauty of the French Alps. Being a novice in hiking and yoga I was slightly apprehensive about booking this type of holiday, but from the moment I arrived the customer service was exceptional and team really made me feel at ease. There was no pressure to do any of the activities if I didn’t want to, which I really liked. The activities were for beginners and anyone at any level of fitness will enjoy doing them, but experienced yoga students were also in our group and felt the benefits. The breathtaking environment of the Alps is a memory you will always cherish and being able to hike through the mountains and walk to the summit gives you a real sense of achievement. A pleasant surprise was the quality of the food, which matched any famous French chef. Plus the accommodation was like staying at a friend’s cosy house rather than a hotel chain. This holiday will improve your fitness, open your eyes to the unimaginable scenery, kick start your new healthy life, remove any stress, and, of course, stay with you forever. A dream holiday…” Garry P – UK

“It was very nice to discover Thailand with Yoganic Moves. We were a nice group of people, had interesting talks and laughed a lot. I really enjoyed the visits to the National Park as I love nature so much. The beach at Relax Bay is a little paradise with stunning sunsets and lovely shakes and cocktails. I enjoyed very much the yoga in the morning and the evenings. As I am a beginner some classes were quite challenging, but I feel that my body got stronger after 10 days. I will certainly continue practicing back home.” Kristel V. – Belgium

“A Journey into Tranquility” qualifies as one of the best holidays of my life. Great places, great people, great yoga. Annick is an amazing trainer. At the end of 10 days I felt more flexible, more relaxed and more peaceful than ever. Highly recommended.”  Traian S. – Romania
