Autumn Rejuvenating Retreat

Yoga and conscious Movement in the South West of France

6 days-5 nights, 11-16 October 2021

Overview

In this early fall, the earth guides us to a growing sense of confidence and abundance inspired by the harvest season. It also brings us to connect with ourselves and our true needs in order to nourish our bodies and souls with what is good for us and let go of what is no longer useful. It is a season full of maturity that helps us grow and move towards more happiness.

Through yoga, meditation and qi gong, we will prepare together to approach winter with a new serenity, a reinforced immunity and a new capacity to cultivate and preserve our inner energy. In a warm setting and in osmosis with nature, we will explore different facets of this beautiful autumn season while integrating body and mind.

The place- the Happy Hamlet

Located in the Tarn near Agen and 1 hour from Toulouse, we will stay in the Happy Hamlet dating back several centuries and lovingly renovated by our hosts. We are grateful to have crossed the path of this exceptional and kind couple who combine their great sense of hospitality with a deeply eco-responsible approach. There are definitely some beautiful vibrations at the Happy Hamlet!

By the way, we are not the only ones to be under the charm of the Happy Hamlet, magazines and television too… here is the link to the media. You can also browse the many sections of their website here.

Spaces

The place offers beautiful common spaces, in particular the large yoga room located in the renovated barn, the sauna integrated with nature, the multiple terraces and enchanting corners in the garden, several dining areas… so many opportunities for either enjoying conviviality or nourishing self-connection.

Rooms

All unique, warm and spacious, the rooms are shared with 2 or 3 people according to your choice. They are all ensuite with bathroom.

There is a possibility for a private room near the hamlet.

Meals

Meals are conceived by our hosts from the products of the garden and the local cultures, nourishing our bodies with delicious tasty and healthy food.

The teacher

Caroline Combelles, teacher in Meditation, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga and Qi gong, but also a stress and trauma therapist (TRE®, SE®), combines these beautiful disciplines to guide her students towards greater harmony between body and mind.
