Yoga & nature retreat

 

16 – 20 June 2021

With Peter Roussel

a refreshing break with yoga classes twice a day,
silent meditation walks in the lush surrounding forests and long summer evenings around the camp fire

Energize yourself

The Practice

The yoga, the good people, yummy food, gardens and walks all serve one purpose. You will feel it ….

Peter provides 2 yoga classes per day. The classes are held indoors. Mornings will be in silence until after the yoga class.

The Gite

We have a beautiful gite booked with a large space for our individual yoga practice. Beautiful gardens and cosy rooms make it a treat to stay here.

The gite can accommodate 12  guests. It has several bedrooms some with private shower and toilet. You can book a room for yourself (single room) or to be shared with one other person (shared room). If you like to share a room with someone you know, please book with a friend.

Nature

Yoga practice brings the senses alive; we perceive nature in more detail, sometimes the hidden sense of perfection can be revealed. The surrounding fields and forest provide for plenty of opportunity for fascination. Plan to spend time outdoors to absorb the impression of mother nature’s ways.


“Being in and breathing in nature can transport us into being the timeless matrix of life on the planet”
