ACCOMMODATION

3 nights twin accommodation in a cosy chalet www.lechaletdublanc.fr                                        Single room supplement: 100€
Located at an altitude of 1000m in the heart of the Bauges, in the village of Aillon, Le Chalet du Blanc offers all the comfort for 4 days of sport and relaxation: large lounge with fireplace, spa area with outdoor Nordic bath, sauna and heated swimming pool... gourmet pleasures with tasty organic and vegan cuisine.The large bay windows surrounding the chalet allow complete immersion into the natural environment.

MEALS

Breakfast and dinner are provided at the accommodation.

Meals are prepared at the chalet by Karine, also a yoga teacher but an outstanding organic and vegan cook! The cooking lessons accompanied by the naturopath will allow you to prepare certain meals from fresh, seasonal, local and organic produce as much as possible.

As part of a detox cure, food is hypotoxic: the goal is to generate as few toxins and toxins as possible in the body. It is also a diet which aims to provide the body with less energy than it needs, in order to generate the natural process of autolysis: the body draws on its reserves and waste to nourish itself and therefore cleans itself.
The detox diet will be vegan: animal products (meat, fish) are excluded as well as animal by-products (dairy products, eggs etc.). But don't worry... we will show you that it is possible to have a detox, vegan diet while remaining festive and delicious!
The cooking classes will allow you to return home with recipes to make these dishes in your own kitchen.

NATUROPATHY

Naturopathy is considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) as one of the 3 traditional medicines in the world (with Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine). It is an ancestral and preventive medicine, the objective of which is to give back to the body the means to regenerate and regain all its vitality using natural techniques. Diet, physical activity, sleep and emotion management are some of its essential pillars. Naturopathy allows everyone to become an actor of their health in a simple and natural way on a daily basis.

YOGA

Each morning a yoga class is given by Karine in order to circulate the energy in your body and to facilitate the elimination of toxins emitted by the detox cure.
You will learn breath and movement are your best allies to purify and energise your body!
