Listen In Retreat, France


  • Château Benque, Occitanie, 31420 France (map)

Join me in my very special family home for 4 days of yoga, food, workshops and quiet time. Based in the beautiful countryside surrounded by fields and green spaces, the house is the perfect haven for some real time out. We will use our yoga practices to unwind the body and mind, to invite a softness and surrender into our state of being. This is a nurturing space, where you will be supported in the unravelling of your daily stresses, to allow you to reconnect to the true essence of your natural state of being.

If the weather is warm (it usually is at this time of year) we can make use of the pool. If you want to take long walks or play tennis, there is plenty of time for that, as well as cosying up by the fire, in solitude or long conversations with the other guests. There really is space here for whatever it is that you need, and our intention is to slowly unravel from daily tensions, to really rekindle our ability to listen in to our inner wisdom of what that may be.

Schedule

This schedule is subject to change as I spend more time drawing together inspiration for the retreat, however this is just to give you an idea of what our days together might look like.

Sunday 22nd

I like to spend time at home on Sunday’s to get set up for the week ahead. When I travel home late and miss that time I feel as though I am starting my week on the back foot. This is why we have scheduled the retreat to get you back to London in time to transition smoothly upon your return. We will begin the day with a morning practice, and close the retreat before breakfast, so that you can gently prepare to leave.
