A single watchword in Samoëns this winter: relaxation

Between the search for physical and spiritual balance, the search for flexibility or muscular and nervous relaxation, this complete activity will be extraordinary.

Come and discover Cold Yoga, with Quintessence

It sounds a bit barbaric when you say it like that…

Have you ever heard of cold yoga? This activity, which remains marginally known in France, was originally developed by the Tibetans in the Himalayas in very “hostile” conditions. In Samoëns, we do not propose anything barbaric, just a walk on snowshoes, in the heart of the magnificent landscapes of the Alps. It would be a walk like no other that will bring you all the serenity you are looking for.

Cold Yoga, an invigorating activity

Your breath will be your tool of awareness during this snowshoe hike. Accompanied by our mountain guide and wellness specialist, Quintessence, you will evolve in a magical setting in pursuit of your inner well-being. Your guide of the day will give you many tips to refocus on your environment and yourself while learning how to fight against the cold. So come and spend a moment of absolute tranquillity in the mountains of the Samoëns.

Walking to recharge your batteries

The Afghan walk is an activity like no other. With your feet in the snow, in the middle of the alpine landscapes of Samoëns, come and discover this relaxing and almost meditative experience. Far from daily hustles, this mindfulness tool will help you refocus on your breathing and your steps.

Walking, without getting tired, and being able to survey the snowy landscapes: is what the Afghan walk has to offer you. It will be a moment of active meditation that will combine relaxation, relaxation, and better management of the effort in the mountain.
