Yoga Retreats – singles, groups and partners
At various times of the year we run special yoga retreats in conjunction with Freddie Jones, a qualified yoga teacher and one of the warmest and kindest people you could meet.
Each week that we run these courses there are 2 options; to come for a 3 night break or the whole week
Freddie will offer instruction in various disciplines: Asana, Meditation, Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) and Pranayama (working with the breath). It will give you time to be, and time to restore and balance.
There will also be session of walking in the mountain air – breath, peace, stillness………
Your Yoga Teacher – Freddie
Freddie holds a teaching diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga and is also a foundation course tutor for them.
She teaches Hatha yoga in England and leads three yoga retreats a year in Wales as well as our yoga holidays here in Les Carroz.
You don’t need to be bendy to come on a yoga holiday with Freddie, just come with an open heart and let the rest happen. All sessions will be gentle and each person is encouraged to work at their own level and accept their limitations, yoga is non competitive! Meditation is taken step by step as we encourage our minds to become still and quiet. JOY!
Your walking companion – Caroline
Caroline just loves being in the mountains and in 2012, she qualified as a hiking leader with the French Mountain Environment Federation having spent the last decade or so discovering the multitude of tracks that criss-cross the Grand Massif, both on foot and on horseback.
She is an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to flowers and other wildlife and is keen to learn more and share this interest with others.
Your Chef – Nick
Nick has been catering for our guests for the past 15 years and over that time, he has amassed more than 180 different recipes, taking culinary influences from every corner of the world.
He is passionate about cooking and loves trying out and creating new recipes. His vegetarian meals are wholesome and delicious. Many guests return as much for the food as for the activities on offer in Les Carroz.
Vegetarian Menus – home-grown food
For our Yoga weeks, we provide a full vegetarian menu, with many of the produce grown in our own garden: courgettes, green beans, cabbages, leeks, beetroot and tomatoes.
Partners not wishing to take part in the yoga sessions are welcome too. They can either join everyone on one of our accompanied walks or just to do their own thing!
Staying in the calm and relaxing atmosphere of La Ruche, enjoying Nick’s fantastic and healthy vegetarian meals they can be assured of a truly blissful stay.
