Location and house
The house is located up in the French Parc Naturel Regional du Haut Languedoc. As we wind our way up the hill to the house, situated 800 metres above sea level, the views to the coast and along the French countryside will take your breath away. The farmhouse sits in a bowl like valley giving you a sense of being held by the landscape around you; a space to relax, reset and release. Around the farmhouse, pathways weave through the forests leading to hidden spaces where meditation and quiet moments are encouraged. There is also a fresh water swimming pond fed by the stream and a Cedar sauna, a perfect way to detox.
As you enter the main house there is a kitchen and a large living area equipped with a big dining room table. Off this is the triple room. Upstairs are three further twin rooms and a single room. All rooms share two bathrooms and two loos. From the 1st floor you can exit onto a sun terrace to catch the evening rays. There is also the opportunity to enjoy an al fresco bath experience up on the hill. Propped up on a rocky outcrop this bathing experience allows you to enjoy the stars whilst soaking up and reflecting on your day.
The yoga Shala situated in a old converted barn is a quiet yet grand space that gives a sense of sanctuary and peace. It has exposed brick work and a polished concrete floor, and the old thick walls add to a sense of comfort.
Please by advised there is the loveliest of dogs, Frank who lives on site, so please do let me know if that is going to be a problem.
Yoga sessions will be held in the Yoga Shala, a converted old barn. There will be morning and evening classes, morning sessions, a dynamic Vinyasa flow with strong Pranayama ( breathwork) and strengthening Asanas (postures, evening classes will be slower and will allow you to go deeper into the body and mind, with longer holds and calming Pranayama.
Classes are going to be suitable to all levels of Yogis however a small understanding of basic postures is important.
There will be downtime in between the morning and evening sessions. Giving you time to explore your surroundings but also giving you time to relax and unwind. Maybe get stuck into a book that you have wanted to read for a while, or take time to sit and meditate in quiet, or maybe go for a walk around the hills (guided options available).
The menu for the retreat is Vegetarian and mainly Organic. Having a well balanced, mainly plant based diet is important for a healthy body. On this retreat removing as many toxins as possible will allow you to go deeper into your practice, mind and body.
Diet restrictions and allergies are catered for.
