11-15 SEPTEMBER 2019


Feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Unsure about the direction of your life? Take some time to reflect on what's important to you away from the frenetic pace of day-to-day life with this yoga, hiking, and self development retreat in the French Alps.

Spanning five days and four nights at La Ferme Du Soleil, set in the magnificent French Alps, this is the perfect opportunity to get into the great outdoors and reconnect with your body and mind.
There will be two daily yoga practices (eight in total) lead by me as well as daily guided hikes lead by Dan and Xander (both expert hikers familiar with the local terrain). If you’ve not visited the French Alps in summer, you’re in for a wonderful surprise - the scenery and views are as equally spectacular as they are in winter. As the snow melts away, rolling green meadows are revealed, with a cornucopia of colourful alpine flowers and forests.

Two self-development workshops will focus on holistic stress coaching and finding your own personal balance and wellbeing. These workshops will encourage mental clarity, restore emotional kindness, and give you a set of tools to aid in managing stress and other challenging thoughts and emotions. Cleanse and rejuvenate the mind, as Lily helps you access your core priorities, let go of negative patterns, and open up to a happier and healthier you.

Daily brunches, dinners and afternoon tea will be provided with specially curated vegetarian and plant-based menus from the chalet's expert team.

We will have plenty of opportunities to relax in the surrounding gardens enjoying the refreshing, pure mountain air, and while warm weather isn't guaranteed, there is usually wonderful sunshine. There's also an on-site sauna as well as massages available on request. 

There will also be some little surprises along the way, and of course fun filled goodie bags for you to take home.
Expect to leave feeling nourished, restored, and invigorated.
