ABOUT MOUNTAIN THERAPY
Helen set up Mountain Therapy as the antidote to the typical tartiflette-fuelled ski holiday. As a qualified Natural Chef trained at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, she considered Mountain Therapy the ideal way to connect her love of the mountains with her passion for real food and decided to create a wellbeing experience in the mountains where people could truly relax, restore and re-energise.
Her approach to wellbeing is simple and relaxed: nourishing food cooked with natural, wholesome ingredients, yoga to restore the mind and body, uplifting mountain sports and crisp fresh air.
Good, nourishing food is at the heart of a Mountain Therapy holiday and we strongly believe in sustainable and healthy food choices to help you thrive and feel the best you can. We use the highest quality natural, local and seasonal ingredients to create wholesome and energising dishes that are naturally free from refined carbohydrates and sugar.
We also cater for special diets and allergies so just let us know your needs when you come to book and we will be happy to discuss it with you. All our food is cooked and prepared by Mountain Therapy founder, Helen.
Or SNOWGA! You would be forgiven for never having heard of this concept before, but Snowga is actually a great way of getting in tune with yourself and the world around you. By taking your yoga outside, you're not only opening up your mind and appreciating the natural phenomena surrounding you, but also enjoying the benefits of fresh air, sunshine, and hopefully some serenity.
Snowga is also used by many to improve their skills on the slopes by incorporating the yoga principles of meditation, breathing techniques and stretching poses. The US ski team freestyle mogul skier, Heather McPhie, is reported to practise yoga every day she skis:
"It is so helpful in keeping my body more physically prepared and is a wonderful pause in my day where I get away from everything else and just centre," she told FoxNews.
Mountain Therapy works with a number of yoga partners to create a bespoke experience for you. Our ski and yoga retreats are run in partnership with Polly's Yoga, and you can find out more about these special weeks here.
