Fresh & Fabulous Equinox Retreat

 

Thursday 19th - 22nd September 2019 (3 nights)

at Uxello Chalet, The Alps, France

This was the second year back at The Equinox Retreat in the Alps.

The day began with oil pulling, warm lemon water, a sublime meditation practice lead by Julie Devine followed by a juice and then a fun and challenging yoga practice lead by me. It was just as magical as last year with incredible sunshine and the added gem of a day out at a beautiful lake. We practiced yoga by the lake, which felt incredibly special with the beautiful mountainous backdrop and the turquoise water of the lake. We had  an invigorating swim afterwards followed by a picnic lunch.  Evening supper was a superb, tasty vegan meal prepared by Sephie Deacon followed by restorative yoga and guided yoga nidra. 

The next day we managed to fit in a hike in the mountains and guests also had the opportunity to receive massages and holistic treatments. 

Here's what some of the participants said of the retreat:-

"Dear Sephie, Julie and Flo. What an amazing time I've had. I cannot put into words what a special place this is, fabulous food, amazing yoga and wonderful company. Thank you for making me feel so welcome and for all your knowledge. You worked so hard and i appreciate it all so much.".  Jenny

"Thank you so much for everything. What a gorgeous location to have this special retreat. The food was out of this world. I loved the company, the yoga was fab, I was challenged in a positive way. The walk was just enough, clean, clear and fresh. I go home revitalised and with knowledge ( my word of the week)". C Foster.

"Thank you so much for an amazing seamless time. It was so fabulous (and fresh) to have food and yoga prepared with love.  I forgot my "outside life" and was able to go in deep. Thanks so much for the perfect venue, the weather the sun (how did you manage to do that?) and the lush green forests. You are all very special".  Kate.

The Art of Living Mindfully

A  Deep  Dive  Yoga  Retreat  Immersion

 

Thursday 4th - Monday 8th July 2019 (4 nights)

at the Mill Retreat Centre, Normandy, France

 

Hosted by Florentina Lam-Clark and

Sarah McFadden

This was a wonderful retreat held in 30 acres of stunning grounds with a spectacular 10 acre lake, woodland and natural wildlife. We were a group of 16 and had sole use of the centre. We began each morning with Vinyasa Flow yoga practice taught by Sarah followed by a wonderful breakfast prepared by the in-house chef, David.  There was plenty of free-time with a mid-morning workshop followed by lunch.

Sarah an I offered one to one sessions of yoga and holistic treatments, which the retreaters enjoyed. The evening yoga sessions were restorative practices that explored meditation, pranayama, restorative yoga and yoga nidra. The retreat centre was amazing and one of the many highlights for me, was practising yoga by the lake with Sarah, in order to fit in our own personal practice and then swimming in the freshwater lake afterwards, which was absolutely divine!

Here's what some of the participants said of the retreat:-

"I so enjoyed the retreat, you & Sarah created a truly remarkable & special time & experience". T Hall.

"As someone with limited experience I found the blend of vinyasa flow and restorative yoga a wonderful balance and deeply satisfying". G Pattison.

"I felt rested, rejuvenated and inspired to go back into my life and make some changes " J McGreggor.
