Nourish your body, mind and soul. Boutique luxury retreat in the Dordogne


Nourish your body, mind and soul....

I am so excited about this new retreat in the Dordogne region of France.......imagine rolling countryside, vineyards, fields of sunflowers.....and the charm and style of the France.

This will be an an exclusive, luxury, boutique retreat and will be open to just 9 ladies....

Just to whet your appetite.....imagine views across beautiful French countryside to the vineyards beyond, 3 amazingly styled French luxury cottages arranged around two outside pools, one a heated saltwater pool....the most wonderful open yurt....for al fresco yoga, a firepit for evening ceremonies, a trip the local chateau for wine tasting......and your meals prepared by an amazing chef who is also a nutritionist who creates menus that are both delicious and healing for us.

And of course the yoga.....we will practise twice daily (apart from the day we visit the vineyard). It is all about balance after all.

Our theme for this week will be nourishment....how do we nourish our mind, body and soul....what practices bring us joy, vitality and energy....

Accommodation:

We will be hosted in three beautiful French cottages, arranged around 2 beautiful pools and in the middle of stunning French countryside.  Each of the cottages is individually styled with beautiful special touches to ensure your comfort. 

In each kitchen there is a fully equipped kitchen, (even including a Nespresso machine) as ell as comfortable and gorgeous sitting rooms. The cottages open up to beautiful patio areas and we will eat our meals together as a group, either on the table outside or in the fabulous open sided yurt.

Everything you need will be provided and will have that air of French style and luxury.  All bedlinen and towels (including pool towels) are Egyptian cotton.

There are 3 cottages, La Verger, La Peche and La Poire.  If you are one of the first to book you can choose your room - but all rooms will be absolutely delightful.

In La Verger, there are 2 rooms for sole use; 1 with a king size bed and another with a double bed.  The room with the kingsize bed has a balcony and both rooms share a luxury bathroom.

In La Peche, there is a double room (for sole use) with an ensuite toilet and basin (and shared bathroom with the twin room downstairs.  There is also a stunningly beautiful twin room downstairs.

In La Poire, you may choose the twin room that has 2 double beds! or another room that is a another beautiful twin room.......(if 3 friends wish to share this room, it does have 3 beds - so it can be a triple for 3 friends booking together, please contact me for a reduced price for this).

My descriptions above does not do justice the beauty of these rooms or cottages.

Yoga

Our yoga will be in a fabulous yurt in the gardens.  We have carefully chosen the yurt so that we can flow together in a circle.  For those who know me, I don't like straight lines and feel we connect more as a group when we practise together in a circle.  It is also the way, in ancient traditions how women gathered together to create magic and connect to their power.  As well as yoga, we will use this space for meditation, yoga nidra and rituals.

We are hoping that we can also have a fire pit here for this week.  Fire is a powerful medium of transformation and when we use our group energy and fire, we can powerfully release what no longer serves us and consciously invite in the new.

The owner is using a stylist for the yurt so it will look amazing with fairy lights, rugs and special little touches, it will be open at the sides so if the weather is good, as it should be in June, we will feel like we are outside yet sheltered from the direct sun.

Food

There will be food available in each cottage for a light breakfast before yoga for those who prefer a herbal tea, hot lemon or a coffee and bread, croissant before yoga.

We will then have a substantial brunch and evening meal prepared for us and eaten together as a group, either on one of the tables outside or in the yurt.  Each meal will be planned and prepared for us by our very own nutritionist chef who will show us how food can be our medicine and how we can enjoy delicious, colourful, flavoursome food that is also healthy and healing for our mind, body and spirit.

Our theme.

Our theme for this retreat is nourishment.  We will be nourishing our body, our mind and our soul.  Through our yoga practices, we will be embodying various aspects of the Goddesses and discover how we can use these to nourish and nurture ourselves in our every day life.  As women, we often find we are trying to do it all and we are at risk of burnout if we don't take the time and space for self-care.  Of course, things like retreats, massages, facials and yoga are great parts of self care...but here we will explore this deeper and how we can practise divine self care by cultivating an intimate relationship with ourselves and the ultimate self care, by truly knowing ourselves and choosing practises, habits or a life that honours and supports our truth.
