Dear dedicated Yogis,
A Culinary Yoga Retreat
IN THE FRENCH ALPS
AUGUST 20 – 23, 2020 * CHALET SAVOIE FAIRE
It has been a challenging and unique time and we are all just emerging into our brand new world. We are very unsure about everyone’s thoughts on traveling but Heidi and I were thinking about what people might need at the moment. So we have put this retreat together with only you and a safe place in mind, where you can take a break and step away from your normal environment and routine, taking the time to breath, to walk with nature, to learn how to cook a few healthy vegetarian meals and share five mindful yoga sessions.
We want to limit this to a very small group of people, it’s over a long weekend as anything shorter would just make you cry, as you won’t want to leave.
You will come away feeling renewed, reconnected, recharged and ready to enjoy the path ahead!
For those of you who haven’t yet visited Chalet Savoie Faire, it’s situated in the Savoie region of the French Alps, a bespoke and boutique property, in a small rustic alpine village. It is only 2 hours away by car if you are traveling from Switzerland or Lyon, so an easy and safe way to travel. The property consists of one large chalet that sleeps up to 8 and another property 1km away that sleeps 4 and is also where the yoga barn is located. Have a look at the website www.chaletsavoiefaire.com and instagram page Chalet Savoie Faire.

HEIDI – Studio owner and teacher at “YOGA MOVES” based in Nyon, Switzerland. A professional ballet dancer for 12 years, always stretching the limits for that higher goal. Three kids later, Heidi got into yoga and found a secret weapon to get through the tough stuff. Of course, attracted to yoga, first by it’s physicality, and then, with time began to go deeper into meditation and Buddhist mindfulness. Teaching yoga now for over 25 years, it has become an expression of everything Heidi is and everything she has become. Happiest when she can give people the space to experience the myriad of benefits yoga has to offer, from the simplest touch of the breath through to the deeper awakenings of the true self. Heidi is Australian so the class will be given in English / French.
