It is not hard to see how the exquisite lights and colors of southern French countryside so captivated Vincent Van Gogh as to inspire some of his most well-known work. Nestled among bucolic farmlands, sunflower fields, award-winning vineyards, and the River Dronne - there could hardly be a better location for a yoga retreat. Join me for a 5-day Restore and Renew retreat in Yviers, France (near Bordeaux), in the heart of the French countryside. Enjoy twice daily yoga classes - a powerful, dynamic traditional Jivamukti class in the morning and long, slow, deep stretchy yin session in the evening. Enjoy meditation and quiet time in the wide open spaces of the retreat center, among fields of maize and sunflowers.
The surroundings are cozy, with a bit of luxury. Sink into a big cozy bed with Egyptian cotton sheets and wake up with the sunlight streaming in through your window bathed in the sound of -silence- . Spend the daytime lazing around the retreat center, a gorgeous converted stone barn situated in what used to be a cognac-making estate, or rent a horse to gallop along the open fields and streams, drive to the local award-winning vineyards, or grab a bike and explore the local area. We will feast on 3 delicious (and nutritious) farm-fresh, local vegetarian meals each day lovingly prepared by the owners, who happen to be award-winning restaurateurs. Sounds like heaven.
This will be a really.special.retreat. I’m really excited. Can you tell? :)
