A small and intimate healing holiday retreat for yoga and meditation, hosted by two experienced teachers.
Along with plenty of time to just unwind, unplug, and simply be, we will of course have a lot of fun things planned, such as:
As part of your week of self care, you will enjoy fresh healthy meals daily, prepared by skilled local chefs using fresh local ingredients. For your last night, we also have a special 8-course guided tapas and wine tasting arranged to cap off a wonderful week, led by Emma Kershaw, head of the local wine and food school La Maison du Rite.
Your holiday retreat includes a local vineyard tour and wine tasting. After all, while Grace and Isaac are serious about yoga, they are also serious about enjoying life, or as the French call it, "Joie de Vivre." After all, a trip to France wouldn't be complete without some wine, right?
Grace and I are beyond thrilled to be co-hosting a yin yoga retreat next Easter in the beautiful south of France.
We have put together this week-long retreat with the aim of holding a space for you to completely relax and surrender to the yinside.
The retreat will feature morning and evening yoga practices, primarily focused on yin and mindfulness, as well as delicious nourishing locally-sourced dishes, walks in the lavender fields and vineyards.
Most importantly, this retreat is an opportunity for you to experience deep rest, to engage in healthy “yinquiry” and quiet time, but equally to settle into holiday mode and soak up the sights, sounds, and smells of this stunning part of world. This France yoga retreat will give memories that will last a lifetime.

Domaine de Mournac is a 12th-century stone coachhouse, nestled in over 15 acres of woodland and vinyards, in the glorious Aude department of South West France.
The location is in the tranquil and stunning French countryside close to the Pyrenees and about a 40-minute drive from Carcassonne.
Our gorgeous venue also features a heated pool. Massages are also available from talented local therapists for an additional charge.
Between the two of us, we have studied extensively with both founders of yin yoga, Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers--as well as with their most senior assistants and teacher trainers, Joe Barnett, Jo Phee, and Bernie Clark.
We also are both experienced and trained in meditation, primarily mindfulness meditation and vipassana.
In addition to all of the above, Grace is also an experienced hot yoga teacher, so we will have some good vinyasa-style practices as well!

However, please understand we must have these terms to allow us to host amazing retreats like this one. When we plan our retreats and trainings, we must sign contracts with retreat centers and pay for a required number of attendees well in advance of your registration and payment in order to secure the kinds of venues you, our students, appreciate.
