THE FRENCH ESCAPADE

from 700.00

3-7 May 2019

Join us for a fun escapade in the countryside of the South of France. Located in the beautiful wine region of Charente, only 40 mins away from St. Emilion, the most famous wine area in the world, the property can accommodate up to 14 guests in 9 bedrooms. We will practise twice a day, in the morning and at the end of the day in a stunning, fully restored, double height French barn. The property has a lovely salt water pool with a deck allowing for outdoor yoga practice as well.

The retreat is co-hosted with my dear friend Sarah Drai, another French Yogini! We met during our first Vinyasa training a few years ago and have since been cherishing our mat times and various trainings leading us to our first Yoga retreat! The idea behind co-hosting was to enable diversity in your practice but also more attention while you practise with an additional teacher to assist the class.

The mantra of this retreat is “SLOW DOWN” from your busy life and reconnect with yourself and nature.

Expect to practise YOGA (VINYASA and DHARMA), as well as some ACRO-YOGA! There will be PRANAYAMA and MEDITATION every day too.

There will be an opportunity to detox digitally by letting go of your phone in a safe place and stay away from emails and social media distractions to enjoy the present moment.

All you need is to book, you don’t even need a mat!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

DHARMA YOGA weaves together many Yoga techniques to slowly quiet the mind and improve concentration.  The physical practice is graceful and challenging, involving a lot of fun upside down, backbends and many variations of the main Yoga postures.  You will practise breathing exercises (Pranayama) and meditation during each yoga session so that you can really feel yourself slow down. 

You will also practise VINYASA YOGA, aligning breath and movement to reach the blissful active meditative state and post yoga glow. 

You will have the opportunity to try ACRO YOGA and fly or help someone fly!  Expect also some partner yoga on the mat with gentle and fun exercises you can bring home and practise with your loved ones.
