The perfect place to… let your soul shine

Soulshine Snow Yoga retreats provide the ultimate opportunity to pause from the crazy pace of daily life, rediscover your true nature and let your soul shine. No less thrilling are skiing and snowboarding: whether you are a beginner or an expert, there are few better ways to feel truly alive than by breathing in the fresh air as you make your way down a mountain beneath crisp blue skies.

A Soulshine Snow Yoga Adventure offers a unique chance to practice Yoga and meditation against a backdrop of life-inspiring, adrenalin-pumping mountain sports.  Expect fun-filled days on the slopes, Yoga and meditation to soothe the muscles and mind, delicious cuisine, hot tubs, saunas, gorgeous views, log fires and laughter with new friends and like-minded souls.


This retreat has completely fulfilled my hopes and dreams of a yoga & skiing holiday. Thank you so much Soulshine Team – I will most definitely be back
— Cathy
I’ve been converted to a SNOWGI!! I love the combination of Flow Yoga, skiing and Yin Yoga. The retreat has deepened my Yoga practice and my skiing has also improved as a result of the yogic preparation. My heartfelt gratitude and appreciation goes out to the Soulshine Team for making this such a magical week.

The perfect place to... breathe deep

Yoga and Wellness Experience

 

Our highly experienced and passionate Yoga teachers will guide you on a deep journey of the mind, body and soul. We’ll make sure everyone is gently challenged with adaptations and options whether you are beginner or experienced yogini.

We greet the day with a dynamic Vinyasa flow session to warm up the muscles and awaken our minds for a day on the slopes. When we return to the chalet we treat those well-worked muscles to a mindful practice of healing Yin Yoga in front of the log fire. We find these restorative poses help minimise those morning aches so familiar after a day on the slopes (be gone heavy morning legs!).

The evening practice also incorporates deeply relaxing Yoga Nidra guided meditations for a truly wonderful combination.

 

Beginners: You are so welcome and we really encourage Beginners to join. We provide different levels and options in each class to keep everyone gently challenged and constantly learning. It’s a fantastic way to build a strong foundation if you are new to the practices of Yoga – so you can continue practicing on your return home.

Client Testimonials

We're so proud of what our clients have to say... 

After feeling a little apprehensive about my first solo holiday, the holiday exceeded all my expectations. I made new friends and had so much fun. The Soulshine Team made me feel safe and secure at all times and I had a wonderful feeling of being totally nurtured! I look forward to my next trip
— Sue, Snow Yogi
I needed to escape London life and I couldn’t have come to a more welcoming and fulfilling place to do so. Soulla is truly an inspirational teacher, who creates a relaxing, warm and inviting environment to practice yoga and be yourself. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience and I cannot wait for the next one!
— Emily, Property Consultant, Soulshine Snow Yoga Adventure guest

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Room sharing?

    You don’t need to travel with a friend to benefit from the room-sharing prices, as the vast majority of our guests are independent travellers and choose to share with a like-minded Soulshiner (same gender of course). We are very happy and proud to say that we attract the loveliest people and have seen many a friendship grow and flourish on our Soulshine Retreats.

  • Don't fancy sharing?

    Never fear, you can pay an additional 50% charge for sole occupancy (limited availability)

  • Travel?

    Our season runs from January to April and we’ve teamed up with Green Rides to make sure your snow experiences are top notch. All our retreats are Sunday to Sunday and we offer a hassle-free transfers* service from Geneva airport.

    IMPORTANT: Please note, in order to benefit from the included airport transfer, you will need to arrive and depart between specific times. We will provide all the necessary information on enquiry and booking and will be on hand to assist with any logistic queries before you book your flight.

  • All levels welcome?

    Beginner on the slopes or yoga mat? Never fear, you are so welcome. Our Yoga classes are welcome to all levels so we will always offer options to keep everything nurtured and challenged. And La Rosiere is a fantastic spot to begin your snow adventures, be it skiing or snowboarding. Don’t let being a beginner put you off as it’s the perfect opportunity to set the foundations for a practice both on the yoga mat and on the slopes – all within a fabulously fun environment.
