What to Expect

Breathe In France

FullSizeRenderThis special retreat in the French countryside that takes place over Mother’s Day is dedicated to love! We’ll be in a place where love is easy to feel and beauty so very easy to see. During the day we’ll explore our senses fully: in nature, food, wine, local markets, the French countryside and the people we meet.

We’ll begin each day with meditation and an inspired flow-based yoga practice. Before dinner we’ll calm the mind and body with a gentle practice.  Our yoga will be accessible and tailored to the students, and you’ll be given new tools to take home with you to deepen your practice.

You will leave this trip rested, restored, inspired and empowered in your capacity for love.  Soak up the beauty of the land, the warm open hearts of the locals and the camaraderie and smiles of your fellow yogis.

At whatever level your practice, everyone is welcome.
