Above Yoga in the South of France

June 2019

Retreat guests spent a week among rolling vineyards and fields of lavender with views of the Pyrenees mountains in the far southeastern corner of France.

This off-the-grid property relies on its own solar power, water source and much of the food is picked from the on-site garden. Every detail in the decor has been lovingly chosen + all the furniture is custom-built.

  • In addition to daily yoga classes in breathtaking surrounds, the group had lots of downtime to nap, read and take a dip in the eco pool, between fun excursions and wine tasting, lots of wine tastings!

  • One day was spent on excursion to Collioure, a coastal village on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, we sipped champagne and checked out some hip shopping and the many seaside restaurants

  • Guided biking and hiking tours kept everyone’s appetites whet for magnificent homemade food with French touches and Asian influences - fresh and healthy vegetarian from the garden - including a mountaintop picnic after the bike ride!

  • Another day we journeyed to Carcassone - the largest medieval fortification in Europe. After a guided immersive tour, we dined castle-side with crispy white wine and a delicious three course lunch.
