Summer Yoga Retreat
14th-21st June 2019
Join me for a relaxing 7-day yoga retreat in southwest France. Sainte Foy is a small hamlet on a hill set in the beautiful French countryside. Experience yoga in peace, tranquillity and in the early summer sunshine!
This yoga retreat offers the opportunity to learn and deepen your yoga practice in beautiful surroundings helping you to relax, revive and nourish mind, body and spirit. There will be daily yoga classes that will include the practice of asana, pranayama, meditation and relaxation. Mantra chant is also offered as an option for those interested in learning. The retreat welcomes everyone, all levels and abilities. There will be plenty of opportunity for complete relaxation, peace and tranquillity. For those who want more activity there is also plenty to do and see with a choice of paid excursions which are all optional – you do as little or as much as you like.
Sainte Foy is an old hamlet consisting of around 12 houses, several barns and numerous small constructions such as well houses and ancient bread ovens. The chapel, which replaced an earlier version, dates from the 1100’s and is built using the same marvellously crafted stone as the rest of the hamlet. Our houses are sat at the end of the hamlet, overlooking the valley and surrounding hills.
This yoga retreat venue is a group of ancient stone properties, beautifully restored, nestling on the edge of a tranquil and picturesque hamlet. Set in lovely private gardens with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, the accommodation provides a perfect setting for a restorative and relaxing stay.
The extensive grounds offer terraces for al fresco dining, hammocks to relax in, fruit tree orchards, herb & vegetable gardens, a spacious swimming pool terrace, which boasts a 12m x 6m swimming pool with stunning views of the valley below. Our yoga classes will take place on a lovely outdoor yoga shala with beautiful views of the lovely rolling countryside.
