Located between the famous Alpine towns of Annecy and Chamonix, La Clusaz Yoga Festival is welcoming yoga and wellness lovers for its 6th summer in a row.
Held in the heart of the mountains, the festival is not only a programme filled with exceptional yoga and meditation classes but a holistic event aimed at enhancing wellbeing and encouraging self-discovery.
The village of La Clusaz itself is a picturesque haven in the mountains and the perfect place to reconnect with nature as well as your practice.
The festival is being held over four days, during which a beautifully curated programme of yoga, meditation, auto-massage and other holistic workshops will be on offer to attendees. Be inspired by the fantastic team of teachers and practitioners from all over the world, hand picked by the festival’s organisers.
Whether you are a beginner or a dedicated yogi, there are classes available to everyone. Starting at just €15 a class, you can attend as many or as few as feels right for you.
Deepen your practice by attending classes in a variety of disciplines and techniques for all abilities over the festival weekend.
To be held both indoors and outdoors, the programme of events has been excellently organised.
Starting with a free opening ceremony of 108 Sun Salutations on Thursday evening, classes, brunches, workshops and meditation sessions will then run from 7am on Friday morning until 6:30pm on Sunday evening.
With every practice you could wish for available, including Sound Baths, Yoga Brunches, Astro Yoga, Yin Yoga and so much more, you are welcomed to join as many sessions as works for you. Try new things, be inspired and come away feeling rejuvenated and motivated to continue your wellness journey.

It’s a great opportunity to create sacred space for yourself, to take a break from daily responsibilities, to make new friends and gain a fresh perspective.
