Yoga holiday with Véronique in the Dordogne, France

August 28, 2022 - September 4, 2022
La Perdix , St. Martin De Riberac, Dordogne, France

We all deserve a break! Please come and join me at La Perdrix, in the beautiful Dordogne area of the south-west France, in August this Year, for an energising and relaxing yoga holiday. The holiday is open to anyone with MS – or similar chronic health conditions, as well friends, partners and family, and we’ll make sure it is a fantastic holiday for everyone.

Yoga

There will be two 90 min yoga sessions. A typical morning session will include a long warm-up, a slow yoga flow with lots of time to stop & explore key poses, try modifications, work with a partner, have fun and then relax!

The evening session will focus more on breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation. Since it is your holiday, we will agree on the time for these sessions together.

Free Time

The rest of the day is yours to enjoy delicious OMS friendly, (plant based, low saturated fat), meals together, getting to know each other, reading by the pool, going for a walk. This is time off with benefits!

The Local Area

It is also possible to organise trips to visit the area, such as the traditional market in Ribérac or the medieval narrow streets of Périgueux. And if you prefer to relax in Nature, then the beautiful beaches on the river or the lakes are waiting for you! Maybe we can even give Paddle Yoga a try?

The Venue

La Perdrix is a gated  private  property on the edge of the village of St Martin de Ribérac in the beautiful Dordogne area of south west France.  Originally built as a 13th Century Monastery, the property has undergone many transformations over the centuries but has maintained much of its original features and historic charm. The garden is rambling, full of fig, plum and walnut trees, it’s an ideal place to swing in a hammock listening to the birdsong, or watch the night sky from the swimming pool.
The property consists of two houses: the main house (La Bourg) and an attached smaller house which is ideal for 3 or 4 friends (La Chapelle).
Although there is room for 25 people, we’d like to keep this event small (14 persons max) so everyone can receive special attention and care.

Accommodation

All the bedrooms are either twins with two single beds or doubles with a single double bed. (Double rooms can be booked for a single occupant.) Please note there are limited ensuite bathrooms so if you want one please book early!

Prices

All prices include accommodation, 3 meals daily & all yoga classes.

Meals include breakfast, lunch and dinner (including beer/wine/juices), teas and coffees. All meals are plant-based and follow the Overcoming MS dietary recommendations.
