Taught by myself, Helen Clare, the morning classes will be dynamic, strengthening and energising Vinyasa Yoga. The sessions will wake up and warm up the body ready to run and get the most from your day. The evening classes will be restorative Yin, to stretch out tension accumulated through running (and life in general!), helping you to relax, unwind and recover faster.

Suitable for all levels, I’ll guide you through a series of yoga classes, that will not only benefit you as a runner, in terms of strengthening key muscle groups and enhancing flexibility and range of motion, breathing and alignment – but, will show you how to take key yoga principles into your running, to help you run more efficiently and safely, reducing the risk of injury, increasing the ease and the fun. Ultimately, running safer, further and faster!

This retreat can be a great introduction for beginners to yoga, as well as building on knowledge for those with more experience and wanting to develop a home practice to aid with running.


Our beautiful Chamonix chalet is situated high above the valley floor, with stunning views of the magnificent Mont Blanc mountain range. The chalet has 7 bedrooms, all designed and equipped to a very high standard. All bedrooms can be shared twins or doubles with a super king size bed, all have an ensuite bathroom, LCD TV and DVD player and a South facing Balcony (several have swing chairs and sun loungers).

The chalet has its own spa with a steam and sauna room, treatment room for the on-site massages, huge living area with double height picture windows and the ideal yoga deck, complete with Jacuzzi and pool, surrounded by breath-taking scenery.

During your retreat, there will be an first-class full-time chef, chalet host and driver providing catering, cleaning, driving and 24hr assistance.
