YOGA & HAPPY FOOD
Retreat in France
31st August–4th September
In our experience, stepping away from our hectic, and often stressful routines is one of the best ways of restoring balance, recapturing joie de vivre and reconnecting with our innermost essence. Our September retreat in SW France has that and so much more to offer. We have found you a stunning location that offers a fabulous and rustic farmhouse with views overlooking rolling hills and a fantastic swimming pool to jump into. The swimming pool is open for use at all times and is a very tranquil place to relax in the lazy afternoons. It is the ideal place to unplug, slow down and get back in touch with nature.

Nestled between open farmlands and forest hills, this retreat has so much to offer from embracing the exquisite natural environment. In the afternoons enjoy leisurely walks in the countryside followed by a dip in the swimming pool. Drink herbal tea and connect with your fellow retreaters, at dusk sit by the outside fireplace and watch the sun go down, it truly is a magical setting. A holistic yet energetic approach which is designed to totally relax, heal, teach, and most of all leave you realising that life is not just about constant rushing here, there and everywhere, this is an opportunity to breathe, pause , unwind and have fun.

Each morning begins with a Yang Yoga practice to kick start your day and each evening ends with a nourishing Yin practice to set you up for a good night’s rest. These two combined will give you the time and space to restore your energy and recharge your batteries!
Don’t miss this opportunity to do more than just deepen your yoga practice and reduce stress, our ‘Yoga and Happy Food’ retreat will leave you empowered, vibrant, healthy and rejuvenated.

We recommend that you fly to Bergerac where we will arrange to have you picked up. Flight costs are not included, and a £40 surcharge is payable for your transport from Bergerac to and from the Yoga retreat. This is the total cost for both ways. No other costs will apply. You can of course make your own way to The Yoga Retreat if you are coming by car for example, but the transport bus cannot pick up from Rail Stations or any other airport. Please discuss this in advance if you are not flying to Bergerac. Ryanair or Flybe from Stansted/Southampton/Bristol to Bergerac is by far the best and quickest route and we will pick you up at the airport.
The main kitchen and all the food is prepared here by our nutritionist and health expert. Every mouthful counts and means something. Energy-giving food is essential when one is practising yoga for more than 4 hours a day. Non-Veggies should say something before they arrive so that we are prepared as 90% of the food is plant-based with a small amount of dairy and eggs. Each day freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juices are served along with delicious salads and soups.
