“Vin & Vinyasa”: Yoga Retreat at the South of France!
November 4, 2018
I’m so excited to announce the details for ‘Vin & Vinyasa: A Yoga Retreat in the South of France’. Join me next year, June 8-15th, 2019 for some yoga, massages, delicious food, and most importantly wine!
Last summer, I had decided to go to the South of France to attend my very first yoga retreat. The question came up quite a bit about my destination, “Why all the way to the south of France?” My answer, “Why not?” I was filled with excitement as the decision felt so right. When I arrived, at Domaine de Mournac, I was blown away by the beauty & tranquility that had surrounded me. But it wasn’t just that, I also had the wonderful opportunity to meet a lovely group of people & experience a way of life very different from the fast paced world of NYC. During my time there, I had mentioned that I was a yoga instructor & how it would be a dream to host my own retreat. Many of the guest & the retreat leaders had encouraged me to do it. When I myself brought up the question if I was even capable of taking on such a massive venture on my own, their answer, “Why not?” (LOL) So I made my inquiries. When the owners of the Domaine de Mournac had mentioned that one of the few openings they had left were for the week of June 8-15th, 2019 (the week of my 45th birthday), I took it as a sign & made my decision. Again it felt so right.
So without further ado, I’d like to announce the details of “Vin & Vinyasa” Yoga retreat at the Domaine de Mournac at the south of France on June 8-15th, 2019. This will not only be a retreat from our daily lives, but also a cultural experience as we revitalize our bodies with daily yoga, while replenishing our souls as partake in the delicious foods & wines of the area. We will enjoy deliciously prepared meals, locally sourced, by our own personal retreat chef, who will take us on a culinary tour each day. Most meals will be vegetarian with a few exceptions for dinner. Of course there will be wine & dessert during dinner & how can we not be in France with having croissants? Therefore, fresh pastries shall be delivered to the retreat from local boulangerie on alternate mornings with our breakfast. We will enjoy the region’s delicacies as we visit the Sunday market, sample the delicious wines from the local vineyard, and relax the mind with an hour-long massage. We will explore the mysteries of the region as we tour Rennes Les Chateau, & discover the beauty of the surrounding area as we hike up to Mont Sec. Bikes will be delivered for a day of cycling, whether at your own pace or with a guided expert. We will indulge our senses with a curated eight-course wine & tapas tasting specially brought to you by a local chef. If you are looking for quiet relaxation, spend an afternoon of quiet time in a hammock or by the pool, or linger amidst the vines or through the woodland that surrounds the property. All activities are included in the price. It will be a magical time to remember as we revitalize our bodies with daily yoga, while replenishing our souls with delicious foods & wine surrounded among the Pyrenees Mountains.
