All Day

Complete Relaxation, Tough Training, Side Splitting Laughter, Sunshine and GOOD TIMES!

This is our third Annual Yoga & Fitness Retreat, and I must confess I think it is my favourite Retreat of all. We have spent the last two summers in Tuscany however this coming year I have found us a new venue; Maison De La Vaure in Chillac, France.

This 16th Century former Cognac Estate provides us with the perfect setting for our Retreat together; amongst spacious grounds facilities include a purpose built yoga /  fitness studio and large heated swimming pool.


The Retreat provides you with a variety of exercise styles. You can find what suits you, and take away what you need from our week together.

You don’t have to join in every class, however I will schedule and programme the week so that you can get the most out of your Retreat whilst still being left with time to recover and relax.

We will have different yoga classes throughout the week; some more dynamic vinyasa classes where I will use verbal and hands on assists to help you understand and deepen your practice, as well as more gentle restorative yoga classes to help you slow things down and relax.

This Retreat will also have a touch of Pilates, a new addition to last year. I have recently fallen in love with this practice and its benefits. I hope you also enjoy this new feature and that you take away these simple but precise exercises that will immediately help improve your posture, reduce the chance of commonly seen injuries, strengthen and lengthen the body.

The fitness sessions will incorporate strength work and cardiovascular work – it will all be done in a very inclusive safe environment so if you are new to this type of training don’t be worried.


We will enjoy a nourishing, vibrant, healthy and wholesome menu. The food will all be sourced locally so expect lots of delicious fresh flavours – everything we serve with be plant based, sugar free and organic where possible. We hope the food you enjoy over the week will fuel your activities and inspire you to return home to your own kitchen. We can cater for any dietary requirements as long as we know in advance.

We want you to enjoy your meals, to sit and to celebrate the delicious food and the wonderful company – so whilst I don’t initially provide alcohol if guests would like to enjoy drinks with their dinner this is something I am more than happy to cater for. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you – Adams session’s might be pretty juicy with a hang over!


Free time is yours to enjoy as you wish. These Retreats are designed to provide you with uplifting exercise sessions but also down time. There is a heated pool at the property and hopefully temperatures will mirror this years, and we will experience wall to wall sunshine – so if you bring a book or two you won’t need to venture far from the lounger!
