Essential Nature Retreat to France with Daphne Larkin

Essential Nature Retreat to France with Daphne Larkin

June 1 - 8, 2019
8 days / 7 nights starting at $2495


Spend a magnificent week in the Dordogne region of southwest France with Daphne Larkin on an indulgent journey home to our essential nature. With the luxury of a week in the French countryside, distractions drop away allowing clarity and vision. We’ll dive deep into daily yoga and meditation practices, write our stories, see our own reflections, lounge in the sun, play in the villages and drop into the sacred container of the body as a way to our truth. In our lives, there are natural crossroads where we pause and dare to explore the glistening paths stretched out in front of us. Join us on a journey of yoga, self discovery and freedom. 

The Travel Yogi has curated a truly French experience immersed in the local culture. We’ll stay at a beautifully renovated private chateau situated in the countryside perfect for walks or biking into the nearby village and enjoy locally sourced meals prepared daily by our personal chef paired perfectly with wines from the region. Afternoons can be spent exploring nearby villages, markets and medieval castles or simply soaking up the sun and lounging by the pool on the property. We’ve created lots of luxurious space for you. 

Days will begin with a morning yoga practice that will act as a catalyst for week’s journey back to our roots. Daphne’s yoga practices are deep, vinyasa flow explorations into the subtle layers of the body as an energetic container. She is known for the fluid grace of her practice with integrated alignment and intentional sequencing that allows all levels of students to explore the depths of their practice. Morning practices will be stronger in nature and allow students to grow their practice in new ways. In the quiet space of the early evening, we’ll gather for a subtler, more restorative practice, meditation and journaling to unravel the places we’ve been and soften into possibility.
