FRENCH CHATEAU YOGA RETREAT
22-27 SEPTEMBER 2017
Five Nights · BURGUNDY, France · Yoga & Meditation · Swimming Pool · All Food Included
Reconnect with nature and find stillness through movement at our five-night yoga & meditation retreat in rural La Salle, Burgundy.
Our yoga sessions will be suitable for all levels, with modifications for beginners. We will practise Vinyasa Flow & spine-focused Scaravelli yoga in the mornings, and Yin yoga in the evenings. Yoga will be held on the chateau grounds: we can expect warm sun and outdoor practice (in the woods), with large indoor spaces available if the weather takes us inside. Yoga will be led by Serena Lee: London-based 200RYT yoga teacher, Level 3 personal trainer, certified gym instructor and founder of vegansofLDN.
We’ll stay at Chateau La Salle’s B&B. La Salle is a quiet, 500-acre space filled with trees, a golf course, swimming pool and 14th century buildings. Expect to wake up to lots of birdsong!
