Yoga Retreat (4 nights)
Saturday 6 July – Wednesday 10 July 2019
Les Passeroses, an old stone built farmhouse and established yoga retreat centre since 2005, has been described by the Guardian as one of the "Top Ten Best Yoga Retreats in the world". The house retains many original features, with oak floors, exposed beams and stone fireplaces. The yoga studio is fully equipped with mats and props. Outside, there is a large oval pool, surrounded by wooden decking, lawns and a tiled terrace. You can enjoy the heat of the sun on one of the numerous sun loungers, or curl up in the shade on a huge outdoor sofa with a book or simply take in the panoramic views of the French countryside.
The vegetarian food at Les Passeroses is fabulous. Meals are prepared using seasonal produce grown in their own gardens alongside market bought organic goods. Meals are served under the cover of a charming roofed terrace. Fruit, snacks and hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day. We kindly request that participants do not drink alcohol at meal times but you are free to do so after dinner in your own personal space should you wish to.
On Saturday evening there will be a short welcome session and gentle post travel/pre-dinner yoga class for everyone. In the morning participants will choose to attend the Ashtanga Mysore class (6.45 - 8.15am) or a slow flowing alignment based class (8.15 - 9.45am). The group will come together in the afternoon for a long blissful restorative yoga class including pranayama and meditation.
Massage will be available at an extra cost.

It takes 60-90 minutes by car from Bordeaux airport and the cost is 50 euros for a return trip.
