This year's summer yoga retreats will take place in Biscarrosse Plage in a traditional Landes Villa, a mere 300m walk from the stunning beaches which boast golden sands and rolling waves. Come and practice yoga in this beautiful setting with a small group of like minded people, experience the full yogic lifestyle, enjoy organic vegetarian home cooked meals, take a massage or indulge in a reiki treatment in the comfort of your own room, surf or swim in the sea, read a book on the beach and most importantly….relax.
Yoga will be the focus of your stay here in Biscarrosse Plage where we will cover the 5 main principles of a yogic lifestyle - proper exercise, breathing, relaxation, diet and positive thinking/meditation.
Asana classeswill take place in the morning and evening on the beach, in the forest, in the garden or in the Belle Vie Yoga studio. Themes such as letting go of fear, opening your heart to opportunity and creating positive energy will be explored.
Relaxationwill take place at the beginning and end of every session. There will also be an opportunity to partake in a one on one private session with one of our teachers and here you can work on anything you like, for example yoga asanas for positive thinking or eating and exercising for your body type. Our teachers are all registered with the Yoga Alliance and have a trained in a variety of yoga styles including classic hatha, sivananda, restorative and vinyasa. They will be available for you to talk to throughout the duration of the retreat.
Mediation will take place in the morning and evening providing a quiet period of reflection each day. Meditate during one of our silent walks on the beach, or in the quiet calm of the yoga studio. Meditation techniques will also be offered throughout your stay, and we will include pranayama breathing techniques at the start of each session.
Vegetarian meals will be created by our wonderful organic chef who will live in the villa during the retreat. Any dietary requirements will be catered for.
Finally positivity will be encouraged at all times, these retreats will leave you feeling lighter in your body, your mind and your soul.
