Experience a new season in France! Our yoga retreat will be at ETRES AUX ANGES, which means “at the height of angels” and is near DURAS in south west France. Located in sweeping green hills the old stone buildings overlook the fields of sunflowers and vineyards. This has been our home for past several years and the food, accommodation and attention of the owners Karen and John Lamb is superb. Other activities include wine-tasting, hot thermal pools, massage on site, the ancient castle in town, the chocolate factory, local cafes or lounging by the pool.
Please view their website, for beautiful detailed photos of the rooms and grounds, plus the most impressive menus. We ate a le francais three times a day!!

The Chateau La Perroterie is near a small medieval village in southwest France, close by is the intriguing city of Bordeaux www.bordeaux-tourisme.comThe entire area surrounding the chateau is historically rich from ancient caves to traditional architecture. We will have time to explore the nearby area during the retreat and afterwards you can extend your travels with friends, partners, or some of us from the retreat, to many other sites and/or countries.

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.
