Why a Yoga-Climbing Course?

YOGA: On a physical level, yoga will strengthen and soften your body & your mind. You will be more attentive, you will more easily accept your limits. We will discuss the basics of yoga philosophy, the sequence of postures (asanas) and pranayamas (breathing exercises). We will see how to apply the benefits of yoga in cliffs to climb in consciousness and have fun.

CLIMBING: Climbing is not just in your arms, as many people think! This sport allows you to develop your motor skills, coordination, flexibility, concentration, listening to your body. We will tackle the technique (laying of feet, grips), the management of the effort (latency, rhythm), the techniques of belaying to become autonomous in cliff, the fear of the fall and the surpassing of oneself (fighting spirit).

For who?

An internship for all

This course is for everyone: Beginners in climbing or yoga can discover these activities with confidence, supervised by qualified instructors. More experienced participants in one or other of the activities will be able to deepen their practice and refine their technique.

Pre-required climbing : none

Prerequired yoga : none

In case of bad weather, we turn the climbing day into a cliff half-day climbing room (entry to the room included in the price) and the Yoga session is also in the room.

Meeting point: it will depend on the site chosen by your monitor according to your level. We will give you this information in due course.

Specific equipment is provided: harness, helmet, rope, belay and climbing shoes, yoga mats.

The rate does not include travel to practice locations. The accommodation is also your responsibility: trust our partners (list available on our dedicated page).

Provide: sneakers, sportswear, a backpack with a picnic and water.

Stunning setting. Got to see parts of the Talloires mountains you’d never usually see and had fun doing so! Our guide, Romain, was excellent. Very reassuring and full of laughs. Excellent English as well.

We had a great time and would fully recommend it. Eoiny

Amazing experience

This was the highlight of our stay in Annecy. So much fun, although challenging at times (esp if you ahve a fear of heights as I do!), it was a great adventure and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Fantastic value for money. Thanks to our guide Romain for being so patient and explaining everything in English as well as French! Smoor

To help you find your bearings, you will find all these points on the map below.

What do we need?
To come for climbing you must provide a sports outfit, a pair of sneakers or hiking shoes (because you often have to access the cliffs by a trail), a backpack to carry your stuff, water and enough to nibble (picnic if you do a day course).

Remember to take sunscreen and sunglasses.

If you have your equipment, take it otherwise we will provide it : harness, helmet, carabiners, belay system, climbing shoes, rope.

If you have long hair, think about attaching them and if you wear glasses plan a cord so you do not lose them.

When can we go climbing in the Annecy area?
In the Annecy region, the best season for outdoor climbing is from April to the end of October. But you can also climb outside in winter if the weather is nice, so you have to choose a cliff exposed to the sun.
