A 5 day retreat at award winning Yobaba Lounge to re-establish a rich, soulful connection to your yoga and meditation practice. Located in a picturesque medieval village in the southern French Pyrenees, the house feels like a temple, the rooms are large and stylish.

The gourmet vegan food has been described as sensational, outrageous, alchemical, the best ever, and more. It is often raw, always free from dairy, meats, gluten, and sugar. The food supports the practice and quickly rebalances digestion. Retreat facilitator Gertrud shares her practice of Embodied Meditation, which is the yoga of breath, mindfulness and movement. Without excessive effort, the practice strengthens your core, legs and hips, tones your parasympathetic nervous system and sets alight your inner space.

There will be periods of free time each day, which gives you opportunity to just relax in the walled garden, pamper yourself or explore wild swimming in nearby lakes and rivers. You will be held within a clear daily structure. The Yobaba Lounge team will look after all your practical needs whilst you let go and spend time with your self. Our retreats include periods of delicious silence (until mid-day each day) to help you reflect and integrate what arises during practice. The retreat is intended for all those in need of rejuvenation, rest and relaxation, and those who are seeking a more mystical connection to their existing yoga and meditation practice.

alpine yoga and hiking retreat

Join us in the beautiful French Alps for an alpine yoga and hiking holiday adventure. After touring around the French Alps, we love hiking in this area. With so many routes to choose from and breathtaking views, you won’t want to go home! Stay in our beautiful rustic Chalet style accommodation nestled on the mountainside surrounded by alpine pastures. Start and end the day with yoga to stretch out your hiking limbs, and soothe them with a sauna and hot tub, or treat yourself to a massage. We have been running these alpine adventures since 2008 and have worked out the perfect formula for your active relaxation.

Step out of the chalet and the mountain trails are yours for the picking. If you’ve not visited the French Alps in the summer time, you’re in for a treat. As the winter snow melts away in the spring, the mountains take on their summer mantle of bright green grass and colourful alpine flowers. The views are equally as spectacular in the summer as they are in the winter.

After a long walk reward yourself with a swim to cool off in a refreshing glacial lake. There are so many hikes to choose from, at blue, red or black levels. Enjoy views of Mont Blanc in the distance. If you feel like a day off from walking why not try paragliding or white water rafting, or enjoy the Olympic sized pool in Bourg St Maurice. Or simply relax in the garden of the chalet and catch some sun whilst enjoying a good book.

Release & Renew Summer Solstice Retreat in South West France, 17th – 24th June

wholehearted retreats france

Join us for a week at Le Manoir, a stunning Eighteenth Century property that has been beautifully restored to create a spacious retreat centre. Set in the hamlet of La Perotterie, with 360 degree views of stunning countryside in the beautiful Aquitaine Province of South West France, the retreat has a private pool plus extensive gardens and grounds to explore. Two celestial events fall during the week of our retreat, the Summer Solstice on the 21st and a New Moon on our final day the 24th.

We’ll be celebrating the height of summer by honouring the sun and connecting with the heightened solar energy of the summer solstice through an in depth exploration of Surya Namaskar (sun salutations) and marking the completion of the cycle that began at the winter solstice with a celebration of summer at the retreat centres very own stone circle. Solstice means ‘standing of the sun’ and we will use our yoga practice this week to connect to this turning point in the earth’s yearly cycle by taking time to stop and reflect our own unique journey over the last six months. We’ll focus on releasing what’s gone before and build our inner energies to prepare for the second half of the year.

To compliment and balance this, we’ll follow the solstice by shifting our focus inward with an exploration of Chandra Namaskar (moon salutations). The new moon signifies a time for letting go, cultivating an inner awareness and planting the seed for new beginnings. We’ll observe this point of the lunar calendar with a nourishing and restorative practice that will help us set our intentions for the coming six months.

Our retreats take a holistic approach to your experience by balancing active practice and free time to ensure you are able to switch off, relax and enjoy yourself. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to the smooth running of the group facilities by participating in some simple Karma Yoga to keep things clean and tidy.

Mindfulness is the same for the mind. Through taking a course you will learn how to notice a little more clearly what your mind is doing.

All Inclusive Blue Bliss Happiness Retreat, Koufonisi Island Greece, 8th July – 15th July

 happiness retreat Greece

I invite you to join me in a paradise-on-earth place – Koufonisi island, Greece, for a Full Moon week. We will practice Yoga, focusing on breath, we will boost our creativity with Impulse Dance and become one with the water in Floating Body.

We will be as creative as children, as unique as stars, as free as birds, as floating as leaves, as humble as flowers, as creative as human beings.

We all carry inhibitions that prohibit us from living a full and blissful life. We work hard in order to live the life we want. We want to be happy and free, to feel light, healthy, loving, accepting, with empathy. But how can we do that? That was my question 15 years ago when along with my international artistic career I started Yoga and Mindfulness incorporating my artistic experience into self-awareness and life’s blissfulness.

As the Greek Philosopher, Plato said, recognizing beauty starts from within. I will share with you the secrets of my own pathway and practice. Take a journey to the core of your being, exploring what brings you the greatest happiness and how to reside in there. Together, we will develop our senses to see beauty, to feel happiness, with attentiveness and joy! I will inspire you to re-discover your body & soul and to become creative researchers and defenders of your own beauty.

And yes, the more we discover the miracle of our own self, the more we realize that we are at home. Our self is our primary home. Everybody is welcome. I believe that every human can find a new way of living through mindful movement. In my retreats and teaching methods, there are no boundaries of age, body form, nationality, and identity.

Yoga and Detox Holiday Portugal, Yoga and Wellness Holiday Portugal, 2 – 8 July/16 – 22 July

Algarveyoga Venue for Yoga Surf

A yoga and detox retreat for anyone who can do with a little bit of a cleanse in the body, mind and heart. The detox is soft, as we still eat food, but very effective. We meditate and practice yoga twice a day, learn a lot about nutrition and how to make life more simple, healthy and happy. There is enough spare time for relaxation, to hang in the hammock, go and wonder in amazing nature, sit in the SPA or get spoiled by one of our massage therapists. The retreat takes place in stunning Monte Velho, overlooking the hills and the west coast of the sunny Algarve. Expect your mind to clear, your heart to smile and your eyes to glow, once you go home again.

We serve light vegetarian food and follow the principal of an alkalizing diet, which is wheat free, sugar free, yeast free and we stay away from alcohol, café and other stimulants.
