We are very excited to announce that Chalet Rosière will be hosting Snowga Shine, a Full Moon Ski Yoga Retreat in the French Alps, 23-30 January 2016. The retreat will include daily yoga and meditation, delicious vegan and vegetarian detox meals, ski passes and ski hire, airport transfer and mountain transport, a 45-minute holistic massage treatment, a snowshoe forest adventure, a secret dining adventure and a closing celebration.

Laura Thorne of Love Lemon Tree Yoga will lead the Snowga Shine daily yoga and meditation. Laura, normally based in London and Brighton, is a passionate and inspirational Yoga Teacher who qualified in India.  She specializes in Hatha & Vinyasa Flow Yoga and is also a qualified Children’s Yoga Teacher and Indian Head Massage therapist.  She has a deep personal knowledge of the power of yoga for self healing and growth.

In 2012 Laura was diagnosed with life changing health conditions of Multiple Sclerosis & Epilepsy. Since her diagnosis Laura has made it her mission to remain positive and to love life to the full. Subsequent to her diagnosis she has regained an incredible level of personal wellbeing and fitness through her lifestyle choices. The keys to her recovery have been yoga, meditation and her positive outlook on life.  Laura now passes on all her knowledge, sharing peace and love through mindfulness, movement and breathing techniques.

Each yoga class on this ski yoga retreat will take pupils on a journey.  Classes will encompass a range of breathing exercises and help to clear unwanted negative energies.  Together we will focus on a range of postures, building up to a more dynamic energy flow towards the end of the class. The classes will be suitable for all levels, from complete beginners to seasoned yoga veterans!

In the morning, Laura’s class will start with meditation and a thorough warm up to help the body move more fluidly on piste.  Her experience with her condition means she understands the importance of strengthening the muscle groups used in skiing, and the yoga asana that help to minimise stress and strain around the knees.  The Snowga Shine program has been especially designed to protect against ski and snowboard injuries and to help with flexibility, core strength, balance. Participants will enjoy one full acclimatising day featuring extended yoga sessions and a snowshoe forest adventure! This will be important to allow your body to adjust fully to the altitude change.

In the afternoon sessions Laura will work with a more restorative approach to help lengthen and soothe the muscles after a day of skiing or snowboarding. As well as relaxing the muscles the classes will unwind the mind after high-octane days on the slopes!  Her mindfulness skills mean that her meditative exercises pay special attention to each muscle group, releasing all tension.

Yoga teaching is Laura’s true passion, and her unique connection with people means by the end of the class pupils leave feeling truly amazing in mind and body! Love Lemon Tree Yoga will be the perfect compliment to an incredible weeklong restorative experience, produced by Eagle Eye Retreats at Chalet Rosière.

You will receive over 11 hours of yoga tuition with Laura on the Snowga Shine Full Moon Ski Yoga Retreat, 23-30 January 2016. Be prepared to feel thoroughly blissed out and ready to seize the New Year by the horns at the end of this magical week.
