Yoga in France

by - 1:19 AM

Some of you may have heard, but I am hosting a Yoga Retreat in France this May! This is one of those incredible right place-right time, listen to your heart opportunities that kind of fell into my lap last year. And I've been given the opportunity to share it with YOU.

This retreat will take place May 21 - 28th at the beautiful Chateau Bardouly in the Dordogne region of France (i.e. wine country, castles, rolling hills and breathtaking beauty). This 400 year old chateau was built in the reign of Henry IV and has been restored into one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen.

I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend at Bardouly with the owners and some other wonderful people last October, and it felt like I was living in Downton Abbey.


The drive up to the estate is breathtaking, surrounded by large trees and nearby vineyards. Each room is meticulously decorated, the large windows open into a serene garden and we enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails in the parlor room each night before dinner.


And the food. THE FOOD. This is true farm-to-table. The caterer Bardouly uses is the most delightful woman who picks food from her garden and the local farms each day to prepare insanely delectable dishes every night. I ate SO much while I was there, and didn't gain a single pound. You can truly taste the quality of the food, the freshness. the's honestly my version of heaven.

Which is why I am so excited to host a retreat here in May!


This retreat will not be about traditional cleansing, detoxing and deprivation. This retreat is about enjoying LIFE.

Loving our bodies, taking care of our souls and feeding ourselves inside and out. We will detox the mind of negative thoughts. We will cleanse ourselves of feeling guilty for having dessert. We will deprive ourselves of the mayhem and chaos of city life for a serene, relaxing week in the French Countryside.

Bardouly played host to last year's YTT for Yoga Works, and has recently partnered with The Travel Yogi (one of my sponsors!) to host yoga retreats beginning this year.*

*My 2016 Bardouly retreat is not affiliated with The Travel Yogi, as I am working privately with the owners.


Each day will begin with tea, fruit and coffee, followed by a morning meditation + yoga class either in the gorgeous studio or brand new outdoor yoga deck.

After yoga, enjoy a fresh and local breakfast and then excursion of your choice:

  • Day trip to famous Issigeac market
  • Bike to a nearby French town (which are the most adorable places I've ever seen, we will be providing bikes!)
  • Shopping and foie gras sampling in Bergerac
  • Wine tasting at a local vineyard
  • Canoeing on the Dordogne River
  • Strolling the French Countryside
  • Chill by the pool
  • Trip to The Hanging Gardens of Marqueyssac 
  • Visit to The Caves of Lascaux  

Our afternoons will have an optional yoga workshop or restorative practice (napping is also welcomed and encouraged!), followed by cocktails in the parlor and the freshest farm-to-table dinner you've ever had. Every single night.

It honestly sounds like a dream and I thought I was in one while I was there. But it exists, it's real and because I am working directly with the owners, I'm able to offer this trip at a fraction of the cost that is available on most yoga retreats.


May 21 - 28, 2016


Double Occupancy : $1,250 pp
Single Occupancy :$1,790 pp

*Price increase after March 1, 2016 ($200). $500 non refundable deposit to hold your place.

  • Special wine tasting evening

I honestly don't think I could find accommodations in Europe anywhere close to this for that price, especially ones that include food and wine! And we get to practice yoga together every day too.

So come join me! I only have a few spots left, so please email me if you are interested or have any questions - This will truly be the experience of a lifetime!

HUGE thank you to the owners of Bardouly for hosting me and offering this experience - you can see more on their website and learn more about my retreat here - Yoga at Bardouly.
