Yoga Retreat in the South of France
October 10-16, 2020
7 days + 6 nights in the world famous South of France. Luxury meets eco-consciousness on a one-of-a-kind property that overlooks miles of vineyards and mountain ranges. Take invigorating yoga classes on an outdoor deck, bike through picturesque villages, learn about French wine from local vineyard owners and dine in a Michelin star restaurant. This boutique retreat experience is truly off-the-grid and will melt away the everyday stresses of life.
Our South of France boutique retreat experience is a beauty. This retreat is limited to 10 guests and is expected to sell out quickly.
Enjoy life’s simple pleasures in one of the area’s most breathtaking regions - famous for their organic wines!
7 days + 6 nights shared accommodations at an environmentally conscious retreat center owned by my friend and Rick Steves colleague Rolinka Blooming, and held exclusively for Yoga Forest guests: Eco Guesthouse and Retreat Center Ferrairolles
The property is in the Languedoc wine region in the South of France tucked between the Pyrenees Mountains and only 30 minutes from the Mediterranean Sea; enjoy the vineyards, olive groves and an organic garden on-site
