TESTIMONIAL: What’s really brilliant is that Véronique gives a whole range of potential ways to engage with the pose whatever level you’re at. She’s hugely encouraging (Cath)

‘The biggest takeaway would be about pushing yourself beyond what you think you can do, what you think you can achieve. I’ll take confidence from it. (Pam)

Morning flow

Free Time

During your free time, you can get to know each other, read by the pool, or go for a walk. This is time off with benefits!
Both Johnny and Ingrid (the owners of La Perdrix) are absolutely amazing and organised lots of events last year. We tried Paddle Board, went for a swim in the river, made pottery, visited the local market..

TESTIMONIALS: ‘It’s been amazing to meet people who are like-minded, who are adventurous and who have got optimism (…) to keep us going’ (Liz)

We came all the way from Minnesota, so we made it a vacation, and he (my husband) has enjoyed it throughly because he has learnt so much about what he can do with his breathing(Barb)

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. 
Note that there are steps in the house and it is not accessible to wheelchair users or people with a walking aid.

TESTIMONIAL: ‘I’ve been here 13 times. This place is magical. A lot always happens around the table, sitting hours on end, eating and getting to know each other (…) and the weather is generally amazing’ (Catherine)

Sponsoring

Even though we’re trying to make our Yoga retreat as accessible financially as possible, we’re aware that it might still be difficult for some. This year we decided to raise funds via GoFundMe to allow 2 people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to join, to participate.
