Yoga Retreat in France - May 2018

We held our first "Tenterden Yoga" retreat in France in May 2018

This took place at our house on the Limousin / Dordogne border. Eight yogis came out for six days

The yoga took place in the galleried loft at our house, and we ate together in our dining room below. All meals were prepared and cooked by my amazing wife Patricia - www.passionatefood.co.uk. The visiting yogis stayed at a lovely b&b three minutes walk away - www.lavieillemaisondepensol.com

The retreat was a huge success. We all had a wonderful time, and the feedback from the yogis was fantastic

I have very fond memories of our time together, and several points in particular stand out: -

  • the warmth and closeness we all experienced - yoga just brings lovely people together 
  • the friendship and generosity extended by everyone to everyone
  • the way our house came alive; although we didn't know this at the time we renovated our house, our loft was built for yoga
  • through a series of classes and workshops, how the yogis noticed the benefits both physically and mentally
  • how small but key things, such as the bandhas, made such a difference to their practice
  • how much I appreciated working alongside Patricia, both of us doing what we each love, and coming together to produce a wonderful experience

We will be running another retreat in September this year (which is already fully booked)

Next year (2019) we will be running two more retreats in May, and another one or two in September
