Height of relaxation
Not only does Austrian ski-in, ski-out hotel Holzhotel Forsthofalm offer yoga programmes to help you stretch, strengthen and relax (on an terrace with incredible views), it’s also built from ‘moonwood’ — said to enhance natural sleep, which can suffer at altitude.
Jasna Adventures, in Slovakia, offers post-ski yoga at the thermal springs at Celtic Sauna World, Tatralandia. Seven nights from £895pp.
At a stretch
Mountain Beach Fitness Retreats offers one-to-one or group yoga sessions in Verbier for skiers, to help minimise injury and maximise recovery.
If a mental block is hindering your progress on the piste, book a break in Chamonix with Hip Chalets and join former pro skier (and keen yogi) Jamie Strachan for pre- and post-ski sessions to flex body and mind. Or head to Val-d’Isère for guided tours with Bernard Chesneau, who will help improve your technique by using gravity, and the power of the mind to boost self-expression on the slopes. ski-mastery.com
