Conscious Climbing Retreat

This spring, we hosted our very first Outdoor Bouldering Retreat in the forest of Fontainebleau. Together with Eddie and Joy from the Zen Caravan, we put together a weekend program full of outdoor climbing, movement, meditation, wholesome meals and bonfires. Everything was there to connect to the nature and the people around us, and to our deepest selves within.

We kicked off the weekend with welcoming drinks and bonfire on Thursday, April 6th, looking forwards to the three days of climbing that were to come. The following days started off with movement and yoga practice to get the body ready for climbing. After a nourishing vegan breakfast, it was time to pack our bags and go to the climbing area.

Whether you are a beginner climbing in Font for the first time, or a professional rock climber visiting every weekend, the forest has something to offer for everyone. Our ATMA Climbing coaches made sure that everybody had the best climbing experience by picking the climbs that suited them personally. That is part of the magic of the Fontainebleau Forest, the variety of boulders in every style and challenge level, right in the same areas.

After each day day full of climbing, we returned to the campground tired and fulfilled, only to be treated to a healthy meal to recover. After that, the bonfire awaited and we took a moment to be grateful for the day and appreciate our surroundings.

This was the first of a series of outdoor bouldering retreats hosted by ATMA Climbing and Zen Caravan. The next conscious climbing retreat in Fontainebleau takes place on 22-23-24 September 2023. Click HERE to stay up to date about info, tickets and more!
