Brief Intro: AdventureYogi has been running yoga retreats across the UK and abroad for 10 years. Over the years we have listened to what our guests want and offer unique retreats to a highly professional standard.
Featured Press: The Guardian ’25 Best Yoga Retreats 2017′, The Sunday Times ’20 Best Yoga Retreats 2016′
Location & Date: Sainte Foy, French Alps. From 18th – 25th March 2018.
Teacher: Chetana Thornton: Chetana trained as a yoga teacher in 1998 in India with B.S Iyengar in Ashtanga Vinyasa and followed that with Sivananda in 1999. She trained in yoga therapy 500 hr training in 2000. More recently she has trained in acro yoga and her yoga influences are Donna Fahra, Barbara farmer, Iyengar, Scaravelli yoga, Shiva Rea.
Chetana’s teachings are adapted to the nature of each individual, her teaching tends to inspire reflection, that is “pratyahara” as we dive inwards and unravel and unwind, core holding positions. Her classes thread spoken poetry, mantras and dimensional, energetic, anatomical and internal awareness as to the healing potential and purpose of each asana on both esoteric and physical levels of being.
Overview: Here at AdventureYogi we love the harmony between snow sports and yoga. That’s why we’ve been running these holidays since 2007! We know the perfect combination of boarding/skiing adventures, restorative yoga and nutritious warming foods (with local wines), along with plenty of relaxation time. St Foy is a haven for skiers/snowboarders of all levels; for beginners there are lessons within easy walking distances, and for more advanced guests there is a playground of mapped slopes to choose from, on or off piste. Ski passes are only €30 per day and €165 for the week, which is much cheaper than surrounding resorts.
Our accommodation is the perfect place to relax and be cosy after an adventurous day in the mountains – you can snuggle up on a sofa in front of the open fire with a good book during your free time. The view of the Tarantaise valley to the Aiguille Rouge and Mont Pourri mountains are a spectacular sight to behold, and you can see them from the apartments. The accommodation is also perfect for beginner snowboarders/skiers as you can come and go as you please. Or, if you fancy a break from the daily snow sports, you can relax in the village and enjoy the sun terraces!

“I have been on 4 SnowYogi holidays now. I love Sainte Foy and enjoyed the fact that we could ski at a number of locations. I’ll be booking again next year!” – Alex
“Ste Foy is a picture book resort with lovely empty slopes and the chalet style apartment was perfectly placed. I was nervous about combining yoga and skiing but it turned out to be the ideal blend. Wonderful bunch of people. Would do it again in a heartbeat.” – John
