Disconnect to reconnect

Digital detox: turn off, shut down, log out

9TH TO 14TH JULY 2020

what to expect

 

As the name of this retreat suggests it, disconnect from whatever you want or need to in order to reconnect to yourself.

The highlights.

The digital aspect and mobile phones... Those precious devices won’t be taken away from you, but there will be restricted times. You won’t even notice it! There will also be silent times twice a day.

Why?

To slow down & practice mindfulness with routine activities. Let’s see how it feels like when you don’t get stimulated by unnecessary means. Bond with the lovely bunch of guys you will be with! And if you prefer spending time by yourself to reflect that is completely fine too.

You have the choice to decide what is the best for you. Choose how you want to live and experience this retreat because it has been created for YOU.

 

The environment you will be surrounded with...

is ideal to pamper yourself: get a cosy snooze in the garden, chill by the pool, read a book, be soothed by birds chirping or simply rest.

 

Other services provided:

Massage from a talented therapist will be available upon request.

Daily countryside walks will promote human bonds, inner and outer discovery and physical activity.

Evenings at the fireplace to spend time with your yogi tribe and stare at the stars.

 

The yoga aspect.

There will be 2 practices a day - 90 mins each & an optional 30mins of meditation daily.

Both yoga practices will take place in our yoga studio at the top of the house.

The early morning class will be uplifting and playful. I will take time to deconstruct certain asanas to offer a clear understanding of “challenging” poses. My aim is to make you feel safe and confident to play with your own practice.

The evening class is Yin and restorative. It will start with 15 mins of seated meditation and pranayama. Yin is a healing practice which demands surrendering and taking a look at what lies underneath the surface, “your surface”. Expect to unwind, be nurtured but still get a deep work through the connective tissues to release as much tensions as possible.

You are in France during summertime. So enjoy life - that’s what French people do best!

the place & THE FOOD

For 6 days Caillou will be our serene and nurturing home - spacious and...calm. It is in Penne d’Agenais - peaceful countryside of the South West of France. Caillou will provide you with comfort and warmth. It is also Yvonne’s family house (our host) and that makes the difference. As soon as you walk in, you feel at ease and welcomed.

Its characteristic: Caillou is a little hideaway in Lot-et-Garonne - you are miles from anywhere and you will be the only yogis around! A haven for escapists.

It has all the space you need: main house with 2 floors, another separated accommodation, a grange, a spacious garden and fields in case you want to explore the area a little bit more.  

Yvonne is our chef too with 40years experience as a nutritionist and life health expert.

Expect fresh and delight food every single day. Oui, this retreat will also be a culinary experience. You will eat like French do for few days.

Most of dishes will be veggies but not only (meat & fish might also be prepared).

The food is organic  and all Ingredients come directly from the local market - best quality ever.
 

If you have any food allergy and/or specific diet requirements please let us know in the form we will kindly ask you to fill up. We are here to accommodate you and provide you with the best service possible. 

Let's be fit and happy internally and externally at least for 6 days

CHOOSE your room

There are 3 spaces in Caillou: the main house, another separated accommodation “Le Petite Maison” and 2 tents for some glamping. Each bedroom is bright and spacious.

“The main house”: 2 bedrooms with its own bathroom. Each one can be shared or enjoyed as a single occupancy.

La Petite Maison is a second property. It is perfect to have your own independence. You can share it with friends or fellow yogis. This house can accommodate 2 couples or 2 individuals as it has 2 bedrooms. Both bedrooms have its own bathroom but for one of them the bathroom is just a walk away.

There are also 2 glamping tents in the luxurious garden - great option to be closer to nature.

Each tent can accommodate 2 people either sharing a bed or having their own. Single occupancy available too.

Indulge in the art of relaxing with the comfort of Caillou.
