September 19-26, 2015

Experience a new venue in France! Our yoga retreat will be 30 km away from Carcassonne, the world’s most beautiful medieval city, nestled in the heart of the Cathars country with its castles, you will be greeted at a charming hotel, once the site of an ancient bishop’s palace.The Hostellerie de l’Eveche, with its 30 comfortable rooms, sits on a park of three hectares. Neighboring our rooms, you will enjoy the ruins of the roman abbey, with the Aude River running alongside.

L’Hostellerie de l’Eveche will also provide you with a large variety of “rural” gourmet products (“produits du terroir”), mostly homemade on our family estate. You will have the opportunity to savour those products from our range of standard to gourmet’s menus. Yoga will take place in the large  antique-styled room originally used for the bishops banquets.

You will also discover, within walking distance and surrounded by the enchanting reaches of the Pyrenees, the little town of Alet, which will delight you with its medieval streets and its mansions with half timberings.

Mornings will be dedicated to your yoga practice as I guide you in my style of effortlessness. My studies with Diane Long and Louise Simmons have enhanced this style of teaching and practice. Now I want to pass this work on to you.
