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