Heal from within – Yoga & Meditation Retreat in the French Basque Country, July 3rd – July 10th, 2024

Join me on a journey of movement, meditation, culture, history, and nature in the French (and Spanish) Basque Country! Our home for the week will be L’Ermitage– a beautiful and luxurious five starts retreat center with modern comfort and cozy atmosphere situated at the crossroads of the Landes, the Basque Country, and Bearn

L’Ermitage and the nature that surrounds it are the essence of stillness and seclusion, making it a perfect place for yoga, hiking, meditation, and deep healing and relaxation!

We will spend time exploring the French Basque country and visit 4 different towns on the French side (Sallies de Bearn, Suaveterre, Biarritz, and Saint Jean de Luz). We will also visit San Sebastian in the Spanish Basque Country. 

On some days we will have two daily classes: early flow in the morning and a more gentle and restorative practice in the evening including breathwork and meditation. On other days we will have a longer class in the morning that combines vigorous flow, as well as restoration, and meditation which will allow enough time for exploring nearby towns and beaches in the afternoon and early evening. 

Each day will have a different theme and focus. In some of our classes we will explore and practice writing and journaling as an additional tool for cultivating ease, focus and mental clarity.

We will practice inside the indoor studio as well as outside by the pool!
