Wednesday, July 21, 2021
After a year of ups and downs for reasons we are all too well aware of I am so pleased to announce details of next years retreat, which can’t come soon enough!
Myself and East of Eden are heading to La Deveze in the South of France, approximately 30 miles from Nimes.
The collection of ancient stone buildings have been transformed into luxurious accommodation perfectly suited for yoga, time for you and overall wellbeing. The accommodation is set within 97 acres of beautiful meadow and woodland above the market town of Quissac in the Occcitanie region. There is a heated swimming pool, an indoor yoga Shala with heated floor, an outdoor yoga deck set in the trees, numerous woodland clearings with stunning views for outdoor yoga classes and meditations. You’ll be able to explore the beautiful French countryside with long walks, cycling or by car.
This promises to be the perfect antedote to life as we currently know it.
The food on offer at La Deveze is delicious with many ingredients sourced from their own vegetable and herb gardens, plus they also produce their own olive oil and wine.
The menu consists of nourishing vegetarian food:
Breakfast will consist of fruit, breads, yogurt, homemade preserves and honey from their own hives.
Tea, coffee, juice and fresh eggs from their own hens.
Lunch will be 2 x courses
Dinner will be 3 x courses
Fruit, tea, coffee and mineral water available throughout the day.
Evening dinner will be served outside under twinkling lights and stunning views over the mountains.
Wine is available to purchase with evening meal.
Each day will begin with a Flow Class for everyone to enjoy. Fluid movement and breath work to bring the mind into a state of flow, with more challenging postures broken down into pieces for better understanding. Meditations and breathing techniques to clear the mind, bring focus and clarity and generally promote overall well-being.
There will be lots of free time to explore the area and beyond, swimming and relaxing in the sun. In the evenings we’ll get together for a nourishing Slow Flow or Restorative yoga session to unwind and reset.
You’ll have the chance to join two workshops through the week where you’ll learn skills, techniques and develop personal tools to encourage you to continue your own daily personal yoga practise. You can expect creative, well thought-out sequencing and some good music.
