Who says that gourmet French dining has to be heavy on meat? This sample menu for our Wildflower Walking + Yoga Weekend shows that it doesn’t.

 

What do you think of when you hear the words ‘yoga’ and ‘retreat’? Early mornings, reverent silences, crash diets, culturally vacant beaches, intense schedules and austere ashrams? How about luxurious lie-ins, meadows of wildflowers, sunset Jacuzzis, wildlife watching, soul-nourishing yoga and meditation, and gourmet 4-course banquets?

 

If the latter sounds a dreamy way to spend some holiday time, join us for our Wildflower Walking + Yoga Weekend in the French Alps, 2-6 June. We’re hosting a yoga retreat with a twist ~ a yoga holiday with a floral bouquet ~ and we’d absolutely love you to join us.

 

We’ve discovered that when you take a relaxed approach to yoga retreats, you get to have an awful lot more fun with the menu. So, for this relaxed long-weekend yoga retreat in the French Alps, we’ve pulled out all the stops.

 

Participants will be treated to elegantly rustic vegetarian French cuisine prepared by talented chef Iain Ross, like those listed below. He’ll be using fresh local ingredients, and classic French Alpine regional flavours as inspiration.

 

Feast your eyes on the sample menu below and let us know your thoughts! We’ve included links to recipes for our favourite dishes so that you can try them out at home. French cuisine can be vegetarian, and yoga retreat menus can be gourmet. Who knew? Nom-noms all round.

 

We have a few places on this yoga retreat remaining ~ Email contact@chaletrosiere.fr to request a booking form or for more information.
