The Retreat: INSPIRING THE INSPIRATION
11-16th October 2019
Check in 3pm, Check out 3pm
I believe that to find your inspiration and creativity it often requires you to step out of your routine and give yourself time; time to sit, to read, to journal, to become fully present and aware within yourself. In other words, to slow down and truly listen to what your heart and your gut is trying to tell you.
Having come from working in a corporation, I understand that it can take a couple of days to slow down and be ok with doing nothing. I have designed this retreat to gently allow the body and mind to acclimatise to pausing and letting everything become lethargic without panicking about “getting bored.” Only then can you start to sit quietly and listen to yourself.
The “work” required will be in the form of twice daily long yoga and meditation practices, long leisurely meals (vegetarian) from locally sourced ingredients, massages and a sound journey all in a beautiful tranquil private villa in Grasse, the sunny south of France.
Our villa, originally a farmhouse built in 1745, is set in the quiet and peaceful valley of St Jean, Grasse’s most prestigious residential area in the breath taking Côte d’Azur, South of France. Standing proudly with apricot walls and pale green shutters, the villa overlooks our private pool and yoga shala as well as a terraced olive grove and a stunning view of the valley.
It is a stones throw away from the old town and 10 minutes away from Valbonne, Mougins and other medieval villages and one hour by taxi from Nice airport and 30 minutes from Cannes.
