From serene mountain tops to luxury ski chalets, we break down the best spots for yoga in the French Alps.


Feel your energy lift itself towards the beautiful snowy mountain tops of the Meribel valley, underneath a clear blue sky and gentle weather conditions at sunrise. (Morning Yoga Sequence / Inspiration here)

Marking the beginning of spring, March is the ideal time to go and truly take advantage of the serenity. Practice yoga in the best environment possible, feeling truly in touch with yourself and the world around you.

To enhance your yoga experience further, book yourself a luxury ski chalet and give yourself total privacy, engulfed only in your own thoughts and the beautiful surroundings.


One third of the lift-linked ski area known as the Trois Vallees, Courchevel plays host to some amazing alpine sights, deep snow, as well as a variety of luxury ski chalets.

From afar, the scene before you is that of a paradise; engulfed in pure white snow and, at night, a spectacle of beautiful chalet lights glowing from the windows through the dark. Up close, it’s no different.

Switch off from the rest of the world in your luxury chalet and immerse yourself in the calm and serenity of your own personal space. (Inspiration for creating your own yoga space here).

Portes du Soleil

Mountain walks and lakeside views, Portes du Soleil has the ingredients for a relaxing, soul cleansing retreat.

In the heart of the mountains, the setting is private, close enough to activity to relax and indulge, but far enough to maintain the effects of the rigorous Vinyasa and the meditative Yin.

Cultivate a deeper compassion for the world and all its ills through the ancient art of Jivamukti, and find yourself and your inner peace in the heart of the mountains.

Charmonix Mont-Blanc

Overlooking one of the more beautiful sights of the French Alps in the Mont Blanc, the valley of Chamonix exudes splendour and magnificence. The beholder of such a spectacle has no choice but to be awestruck.

The Mont Blanc mountain range is sure to simultaneously inspire and ease the mind. Set beside this beautiful backdrop, there’s no doubt your yoga experience will be the best that it can possibly be.


Saint Jean d’Aulps, near Morzine

Take on a different rhythm to your usual holiday plans, and embark on an adventure of mindfulness in Saint Jean d’Aulps.

A combination of grand and majestic Alpine views, fresh mountain air, and a healthy cuisine all make for a great yoga experience.

Tie any broken seams with nature back together as you practice yoga atop a mountain overlooking the vast expanse of the French Alps (at an altitude of 1,000 metres), replenishing your body with a newly refined diet, and your energy levels with a newly heightened state of mind.

So, if you’d like to feel at one with nature, there’s no place better than the Alps.

Courchevel and Méribel are home to the most luxurious ski chalets in the French Alps such as Alpine Infusion. Make your holiday an unforgettable one and book today. It’s important to think about how you’re going to get your chosen accommodation, ski transfers are cheaper the earlier you book with companies like Alps to Alps!
