Yoga is described as “a physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline which is amplified when it is done in an inspiring place”. Could this be the reason that yoga is taking off in the Alps? Popular during both the winter and summer months, yoga in the mountains is very popular as a way to relax mentally while continuing to work out and build stamina.
After a fun day of skiing with family or a group of friends, a great way to end your day and find space for yourself is a relaxing yoga practice in your luxury ski chalet. Stretch out any overworked muscles, and take time to appreciate the moment. Where else can you undertake your daily practice with such fresh air and stunning views!?
A number of the chalets in our portfolio boast their own yoga studios amongst wider wellness facilities, from ski chalet swimming pools to outdoor hot tubs and traditional saunas. The best ski resorts in the Alps all offer expert yoga instructors to help you take the opportunity to refresh and rebalance, many of whom will visit you in your luxury chalet for a private yoga or pilates session either before or after a day on the slopes. Truly take the opportunity to look after your body and mind on your ski holiday, and speak to your concierge about also organising a reviving massage or treatment in your chalet for a wholly relaxing experience.
Beautiful sunny weather and blue skies ensure that yoga enthusiasts can truly make the most of the mountains on a summer yoga holiday in the Alps. Accompanied by the sounds of cowbells and singing birds, practicing yoga in the mountains is the perfect way to immerse yourself in nature during daily practice. Surrounded by indomitable alpine peaks, it’s a moment to feel both uplifted and grounded.
In the summer months, yoga goes hand in hand with the tranquillity of the mountains. Yoga sessions can comfortably take place outdoors, encompassing the beautiful, spectacular, natural setting of the Alps. Numerous ski resorts now host yoga festivals during the summer, bringing together professional instructors from across the world, and offering a whole array of workshops and experiences to explore. Suitable for all abilities and experience levels, a yoga festival in the Alps is a great way to meet fellow yoga enthusiasts and deepen your practice. One of the best known is the Chamonix Mont Blanc Yoga Festival, established almost a decade ago.
Alternatively, begin your day in the best possible way, with a reviving sunrise yoga session above Verbier, at Mont Fort, or find your centre with paddleboard yoga on Lac Montriond in Morzine. If you really want to immerse yourself in the spectacular natural world of the mountains take a combined yoga and hiking holiday in the Alps.
Many of the chalets in our portfolio are available for both summer and winter rental; prefect no matter which season you’d prefer to experience the unique joys of yoga in the Alps. We also offer a wider collection of summer chalets through our sister brand, Alps In Luxury, across all of the best European summer alpine resorts.
