--THE SOUTH OF FRANCE RETREAT 2024 -
The Restore + Renew Retreat
South of France
5 day retreat
Friday 30th August to Wednesday 4th September 2024
Set in Yviers (near Bordeaux) in the heart of the very beautiful French countryside, this lovingly restored manor house and barn is our home for 5 glorious days. Yviers is also close to one of the most beautiful villages in France, Aubeterre Sur Dronne, which is easily accessible from the retreat centre.
A region famous for its vineyards, Chateaux, Bastide towns and churches, this location is the ultimate for authentic French country life.
You can expect fun and dynamic morning classes that vary in style from Classical Pilates right through to Barre followed by gentle evening sessions that combine Restorative and Yin Yoga. Picture all of that against a backdrop of sunflowers, soft autumn light, sunshine and delicious home cooked food. Bliss!
No matter what your level this retreat is accessible for all.
I do hope you can join me for what will be a beautiful week.
