WELCOME!

Imagine embarking on a journey that is not just a holiday but a soulful love note to yourself. If you've ever yearned for a different kind of getaway, where you can truly nourish your body from the inside out, experience transformation, growth and bathe your soul in nurturing energy then this retreat is calling your name.

Don't wait until you feel completely drained and burnt out. The time to prioritize your well being is NOW.

 

Picture yourself amidst the most breathtaking mountains of the Pyrenees where our retreat is carefully crafted to offer you a sanctuary for self-exploration, self-discovery, and a chance to connect with kindred spirits. 

Through our thoughtfully tailored program, you'll find yourself returning to a state of balance, harmony, and ease. Let go of the weight of daily life as you embrace rejuvenating yoga, indulge in nourishing cuisine and immerse yourself in transformative practices.

 

But the beauty of our retreat lies beyond the picturesque settings and revitalizlng activities. It's in the connections you'll forge with like-minded individuals, all on their own journeys of self-discovery and growth. Together, you'll create lifelong memories, share stories, and uplift one another. 

 

Here are 5 reasons why you should join a yoga retreat!

 

1. You'll feel truly refreshed

 Yoga retreats are tailored mindfully for you to have space for learning but also to relax and even take naps! You'll have a chance to put your regular doings to the side and focus on your well being, of fully recharging your mind and body.

 

2. You'll meet like minded people

Going solo is the best decision ever! Yes, it might be uncomfortable and scary at first but remember - everybody goes on a yoga retreat for very similar reasons. Meeting like-minded people outside of your usual circles can be incredibly liberating. You might even meet someone for life. Don't get me wrong, travelling with your loved one or a few friends is also an incredible idea - you'll have an amazing time together.

 

3. You'll receive a continued support from your teacher

Often after taking a yoga class we might have questions but we need to rush back to work or lunch break.. In a yoga retreat a teacher is always there and you can have a friendly chat over a cup of tea or dinner. Use this time and ask as many questions as possible.

4. Reconnecting with your true nature

Everyone has a different reason and perspective for going on a yoga retreat but the core is the same for all - to achieve tranquillity, mental integration, and a blissful timeout. You'll find time to finally hear yourself out, to open up and feel.

 

5. You'll eat well

Food is my favourite thing in the world and the food on a yoga retreat is usually vegetarian or vegan, and therefore lighter and healthier. Dishes tend to be cooked using local and seasonal ingredients with so much love and care. Not having to worry about where or when to eat allows you to enjoy each bite and could inspire you to change your eating habits for the better. It's all about being open to new flavours and experiences.
