About this Event

About The Event

Revive and thrive at Château Verez is an immersive retreat committed to align and nourish your body, mind and spirit in a fun and tranquil setting. My gain is to expose you to the full meaning of yoga, seeking balance through the practice of ancient yogic techniques and a healthy amount of fun. I highly value quality over quantity; with our small retreat groups, I aim to the standard that all clients are within my care, physically and emotionally, and that everyone must be met to where THEY are. Through meditation I aim to create the space for you to fully feel your senses deepen and awaken.

This retreat is for you if:

  • Yoga is a bit new to you but you want to immerse yourself deeper in the practice OR you've never done yoga at all
  • You're an experienced yogi but want a retreat that doesn't take itself too seriously; you want the time to go deeper in your practice at your own pace.
  • You've been searching for a retreat or travel destination where you can rejuvenate and have fun at the same time
  • You've been searching for the perfect travel destination or retreat where you can find the tranquility to meditate and connect with yourself.
  • Stress from everyday life is overwhelming and you need some healing time.
  • Kids/pets/family/boss/parents are driving you crazy and you just need some YOU-time.
  • You're hard-working and deserve this!
  • You just need some space to breathe.
  • Your heart feels called to this: it’s for a reason. Come :)

Participants will:

  • Deepen their practice of yoga and it's philosophy
  • Gain a personal insight of how we can use yoga as a way to transform ourselves towards a more sustainable lifestyle
  • Learn valuable pranayama (breathing) skills through workshops, yoga and meditation sessions
  • Experience the enhanced awareness and deepening and awakening of the senses through meditation
  • Experience the epitome of French culture and beauty at a real vineyard Château
  • Meet, connect and have fun with new people. Connectivity that will last a lifetime

Our accommodation:

We are staying at a picturesque typical Southern French vineyard, Château Verez. The vineyard is owned by the world renowned Château Minuty. The villa is surrounded by vines, olive trees and lavender blossoms and has a large private property for us to fully sense the serenity of the nature. Our private villa has 8 rooms and can sleep up to 12 people. the garden includes a large, private swimming pool, outdoor yoga area, garden and jacuzzi. There's also bicycles you can borrow included to discover the surrounding areas. The interior is typical South of France decor, classy countryside for a relaxed feel.
