Chamonix is a popular destination in the world. In the streets of this high-mountain town, you’ll hear languages from every corner of the globe. People who come to this ‘summit meeting’ share the same way of thinking, the same love for the mountains, nature, and natural living! This environment, full of peace and calm, far from the big cities, and near to nature, will be absolutely perfect to enjoy and go deeper on your yoga practice. Chamonix is especially beautiful in spring and summer, when you can enjoy gorgeous landscapes during a hike in the mountain, in the forest or just nearby the city center, like in this picture.
