“And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.”
– Pico Iyer
Spend a magical week in the Dordogne region of the South of France with Erica Stanzione as she guides you on a journey that will not only strengthen your physical body but will also heal and nourish your emotional self. This luxurious week in the French countryside will afford you the time and space for introspection, personal growth and of course, indulgence.
Erica has always been most passionate about teaching towards the emotional aspect of yoga so she’s structured her classes and retreats around all of the healing elements that yoga provides. Her intention is less about getting you in a headstand and more about expanding your heart and providing the tools through our practice to heal from past wounds in order for us to step into our highest and happiest selves.
Every morning will begin with a meditation followed by a strong vinyasa flow and end with curated journaling questions offered as food for thought for the day. In the early evening, we’ll explore a slower flow with some restorative poses and yoga nidra sprinkled in. As for our accommodations, we’ll be staying at a magnificent chateau and in addition to our yoga and meditation practice, we’ll spend our days feasting on farm-to-table cuisine prepared by our private chef, enjoying exquisite wine at the vineyards, relaxing by the pool and riding bikes around the village exploring the local markets and castles.
This retreat is open to all levels of practice. The only prerequisite is that you come with an open mind and an open heart!
