Our goal is to create a single retreat that offers a whole experience: a dynamic yoga practice; a peaceful, beautiful, natural environment; a restorative yoga session; good food and comfortable accommodations. A three-day fabulous weekend in the most wonderful location.
‘One Yoga’ Retreats are held in the French Alps, only one hour from the Geneva airport, yet surrounded by alpine forests, rivers and waterfalls.
Each morning begins with a five-minute walk past the Foron waterfall to your dynamic flowing yoga practice – outside if weather permits – while afternoons will be spent exploring the stunning alpine setting, if you choose to. In the evenings, there’s a soothing practice to end your day. There will also be some time for you to spend as you wish. The combination of an energetic practice with a gentler practice each day will create a wholeness to the weekend.
You will stay at the lovely Etienne’s renovated centuries old chalet d’alpage. Stepping out the door of the chalet you will find a cedar wood Scandinavian hot tub warmed by a quiet fire and plenty of walking trails.
Maureen is a qualified and insured yoga teacher and potter.

Combined yoga and writing retreat
20th – 25th May 2019
This week will be a combined yoga and writing retreat. Spring is beautiful in the mountains – after the long winter spring arrives in a burst of colour and surprising warmth during the rapidly lengthening days. It’s gorgeous.
There will be one formal yoga practice a day, and Maureen will be on hand to answer all your yoga questions throughout the week. There will be no formal writing lessons, leaving you free to maximise your writing time, and Marcus will be on hand to discuss, encourage and generally talk writing as much or as little as you want. He can read a sample of what you’re working on, too, if feedback is something you’re after.
More details will follow in due course but get in touch if you’re interested, here.
