Where is the ultimate place to retreat and find balance?

A place where grounding stability meets sky-scraping inspiration.  A place where there is an abundance of space and time.  A wilderness place of untethered nature.  The Mountains of course!

We all need to take time out from our busy lives to rebalance. Whether through measures in mindfulness at home or a deliberate get-away to invoke a deep reset. Mountains impose such a varied impression on us making it the perfect environment to support a retreat experience.  With over 20 years of presence + experience in the Tarentaise area Bec can guide you to your perfect Mountain retreat experience with her local knowledge + connections.

You don’t need to imagine how incredibly nourishing it is to take a break with yoga in nature within the majestic mountains! Contact Bec Black for advice on wellness retreats happening in the mountains this year. You can also incorporate mountain yoga sessions, workshops or events to compliment your active holiday for you and your group.
