CORPORATE RETREATS

The Alps

France -Switzerland - Italy - Austria

CORPORATE

Reasons for a Corporate Wellness Retreat

  • Doctors recommend 10,000 steps per day for good health. However, an average employee walks only about 2,000 steps a day contributing to the ever-growing health risk

  • With more hours spent over the work desk and less on one’s health, an employee now struggles to maintain healthy living for the long term

  • Corporate wellness retreats create a strong and resilient team

  • A regular meditation practice increases focus, problem-solving skills get more creative and new ideas enter the mind more freely. Many people believe that Steve Jobs was so successful at Apple thanks to regular meditation practice

  • 74% of employers view wellbeing as important to employees and a useful tool for recruiting and retaining staff. (Source: Xerox)

  • Research has demonstrated that workplace health initiatives can help reduce sick leave absenteeism by 27% and health care costs for companies by 26%. (Source: WHO)

  • Yoga is defined as “The cessation of the modifications, or fluctuations, of the mind” (Patanjali YS 1.2) Simply put, it's the mind chatter that draws our attention away from the present moment, reducing the chatter improves concentrations and focus in the workplace

Location & Access

  • The Alps span across several countries in central Europe - France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Each have their own culture and personality that would be reflected in the choice of wellness and adventure activities available. We will embrace all that is best about a destination into your event

  • Authentic villages and snow capped mountains provide the perfect backdrop to any business event, to motivate, inspire and reward your guests​

  • Excellent airport access to Alpine resorts from both main hub and regional airports in the UK.  We can take care of the logistics for your guests from arrival at the airport through to the resort

 

Hotels & Venues

  • ​Exclusive use venues, flexibility and privacy for your group.  Ideal for safety and even better for your guests overall experience and feel good factor

  • Boutique venues have always been one of our favourites and great for smaller groups. Always a little quirky but definitely with style and individuality to give your guests something to add to their memories

  • By the very nature of this location, there are some very special venues that can be used for unique experiences

The Adventures

  • The Alps are all about utilising the outside spaces, everything is very much geared to facilitating adventure out in the open with fresh mountain air and blue skies

  • Skiing in the winter is an obvious choice for some - think freshly groomed slopes and expert instructors on hand to help those maybe new to the sport

  • Aside from skiing there are plenty of other winter activities - snow shoeing adventures and for those in need of a full body workout there is cross country skiing. Most people are new to this so it's a great activity to feel the achievement of trying something unusual, alongside colleagues and friends

  • In the summer walking, hiking and mountain hiking work well and cover most levels of fitness, so a great sporting and inclusive activity to offer your guests

You are in safe hands

  • All our retreats are Covid safe.  Steps we have taken on all our retreats to ensure a clean and safe environment can be found in our Covid policy.​

About the Yoga & Wellness

  • Our first yoga class would be a gentle practice,  allowing guests to settle into the new environment and feel at home

  • Morning practice will start with a short meditation and a dynamic vinyasa class to awaken the body and mind, leaving guests feeling energised for the day to come

  • After a relaxing and adventurous day, a more restorative class to calm the mind and allow the body to relax and unwind

  • With mindfulness certainly at the forefront of a lot that is happening in the world around us right now, there are some pioneering new wellness activities that we can introduce to your guests

  • Take time out to reflect and reconnect with yourself and others, reducing the use of technology or taking a time out from screens.  Our Escape from Technology blog explores this a little more - to read our blog click here

THE ALPS - THE MOUNTAINS ARE CALLING

When considering a destination for your employee and customer events, The Alps pretty much fits most brief, being a large expanse of stunning landscapes that cover several countries. Bespoke programmes will be created to meet and exceed your objectives and will incorporate wellness solutions available in this relaxing and idyllic setting. Imagine the thrill of skiing or snowboarding on a freshly groomed piste, the clink of mulled wine glasses or a warming hot chocolate, the restorative benefits of world class Alpine spa treatments and extensive adventure options.

Your group will enjoy an exciting array of adventure and wellness activities in both summer and winter.  Winter experiences include the thrill of a snow mobile tour,  a traditional horse and carriage ride through a pretty village to a frozen lake, a team bonding game of curling, followed by dinner in the unique ambiance of a mountain hut with views to the twinkling villages below or for the adventurous, a paragliding experience.

 

Summer brings the opportunity to hike to stunning waterfalls created by melting snow, exhilarating mountain biking trails from the peaks to the lush meadows, kayaking, lake swimming and outdoor yoga with panoramic views.
