Why a retreat in France?

Often misconstrued as two items the same and although the definition of a retreat and a holiday also share a similar definition, taking time to detach and detox from the autonomy of daily life, the approaches and the results vary for each. The definition of a retreat is an immersive and unique experience away from the comfort of home and stresses of everyday life with a sole aim to achieve realignment of physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing. To achieve a new degree of personal realignment and balance, individuals firstly choose the destination of the retreat, for an example a retreat in France spent in a wooden cabin, perched on wooden stilts in a lagoon to focus on yoga, meditation and breathing exercises outdoors.

Every retreat in a new destination is a new opportunity to relish in an unforgettable experience to ascertain spiritual awakening, physical rejuvenation and redefined purpose and inner-clarity through the offerings of tranquillity and serenity from the natural landscapes of the French outdoors, untouched by time. Choose a yoga retreat and programme to suit your own individualistic needs to choreograph your path of balance
