Yoga Retreats

Join us for a weekend of yoga, meditation and pure relaxation in the French Alps with Chalet APASSION.

Switch off from the outside world as you unwind with yoga classes run by yoga coach Tess Klotz, all hosted in the luxurious surroundings of Chalet APASSION.

Your Coach

Tess has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and teaching for 10. Initially trained in Vinyasa flow yoga, that connects the breath with movement, Tess completed her teacher training in Bali with Louise Sear, a very well-known Australian Yogi.

Tess than deepened her yoga practice completeing 3 on-line courses of Prana flow teacher training with renowned yogi Shiva Rea. In March of 2017 Tess completed a 300 hour yoga intensive teacher training in Goa, India with the Yoga Synergy team of Simon Borg- Olivier and Bianca Machliss. 

Today Tess’s style of yoga is a synthesis of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Tibetan Yoga and modern medical science. Tess continues to broaden her yoga knowledge to enrich both her personal practice but to bring variety and experience into her teaching and as such is in the middle of an on-line Yoga Therapy course with Yoga Synergy.

Days dedicated to relaxation

Rise each morning to a yoga session with Tess on the expansive Chalet APASSION terrace* overlooking the majestic mountains of Le Criou and Les Dents Blanches.

After breakfast explore the local area – the beautiful medieval village of Samoëns, the stunning Giffre Valley or alternatively simply relax at the chalet where you can unwind in the sauna, ease your muscles in the hot tub or we can arrange for a masseuse or beauty therapist to come to the chalet to further enhance your pampering experience.

Afternoon tea and healthy snacks will be served each afternoon followed by your second yoga session.

These retreats are designed to help you recharge your batteries and reconnect your body and mind. They will give you a sense of pampering and renewal whilst you savour the fresh air, the invigorating natural beauty of the French Alps and the luxurious surroundings of the chalet.
