La Borde Blanque is an authentic French country farmhouse. It is situated on the crest of a hill with a magnificent view over the surrounding countryside. It has a private lakeside beach on the beautiful Lac de Montbel, with clear and clean water to swim. The property has a natural spring and bathes in the peace and serenity of the French countryside. On the compound, there are horses, dogs, and a cat colony, but in and around there is also a variety of smaller and bigger wildlife and a rich flora.

Program

There will be two yoga and meditation sessions a day, in which the group will practice on alignment and attunement. Each morning there will also be a practical session outside in nature, where you will explore and connect with different nature kingdoms. On some days the practical outdoor session will be combined with a lovely hike in the beautiful surroundings of La Borde Blanque.

The day will begin and end with yoga and meditation, in which your connection with nature will be central. No experience with yoga or meditation is required, but when you are experienced, there will be plenty of opportunities to deepen your experience. The sessions will be adjusted to meet your needs.

Then guests will have breakfast and prepare for the outdoor session, concluded by a gathering and sharing round. After lunch, there is a free afternoon, followed by a second yoga session and dinner. In the evening, there is another meditation.

Things to do (optional)

The area has a long and moving history. Amongst other things, you'll find prehistoric caves with carvings, stalactites, and stalagmites. The Celts left their traces, as well as the Romans with their thermics baths. It's worth it to visit one of the old Cathar castles, or to the mysterious Rennes-le-Chateau. The lake offers many opportunities, in addition to swimming, like sailing, surfing, canoeing, and water biking.

In the nearby area, you can go rafting, wild water canoeing, ultralight flying, or try to hang glider. Of course, there are excellent trips to be made on horseback, or you may go tracking into the Pyrenees on a mule. The waterfalls of Roquefort le cascade are often dry in summertime, yet it remains a place for elves and kobolds. At different days there are colorful local markets, like for example on Sunday in Esperaza, Monday in Mirepoix, and Friday in Lavelanet and Foix.
