You will be staying at our cottage / house in the vicinity of Cannes and Nice. The cottage is 70 square meters and has two bedrooms, one with twin beds and the other with a double bed, as well as a pull out couch in the living room. Each bedroom has an en-suite bath or shower room.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, dining room, and living room with television and stereo. It has just been renovated and all appliances are new. It is set on 1500 square meters of land, and it has its own small private pool and landscaped courtyard. The cottage sleeps six persons. The main house has 2 bedrooms with ensuites and cooking facilities are also available.

La Luciole Yoga Retreat chose this property because it is in the most protected area of the region. There is total privacy and calm, and especially for the 200-year oak tree which shades the terrace like no other awning or parasol can do, which is great for yoga classes. The position of the pool is ideal for watching over small children swimming. The Provençal landscaped gardens are charming with olive, cypress, citrus, oleanders, palms, and many more.


During this retreat, you will be guided by Corinne. Your yoga classes will be with a maximum of eight people, conducted in a calm setting. Her practice is Hatha and Yin yoga, inspired by Anusara principles of alignment and energy, with the aim to move the body mindfully, gently and safely, to strengthen, stretch, and deepen your focus and clarity. And finally, it will be a relaxation time to allow the body to refresh and regenerate.

You will begin by bringing your awareness to your breath and the present moment during meditation. Then, the practice moves through gentle warm-up asanas to sun salutations, followed by strengthening and balancing poses, and then winds down with some deeper stretches to increase flexibility. You will end your yoga session with a guided Savasana for deep relaxation.

Sample daily schedule:

08:00 - 09:00 Morning herbal tea/coffee/matcha latte

09:30 - 10:45 75-minute Yang to Yin class

11:30 - 12:30 Brunch

14:30 - 16:00 Afternoon free time

16:00 Herbal tea with a 1-hour aromatherapy session (2 sessions per stay)

17:00 - 18:30 Free time

19:00 - 20:00 Dinner

21:00 - 22:00 Candlelit Restorative class

(A 14 hour intermittent fasting period is respected between dinner and brunch. Intermittent fasting increases levels of growth hormones. This has benefits for fat loss and muscle gain. Levels of insulin drop making stored body fat more accessible.

When fasting, cells initiate cellular repair processes, or autophagy, where cells digest and remove old and dysfunctional proteins that build up inside cells

Promotes changes in the function of genes related to longevity and protection against disease.)

Free time may be used for swimming, reading, meditating and relaxing in the garden or yoga shala of La Luciole. Or if you would like to visit the surrounding area of the Riviera or a walk in the backcountry or nearby villages independently.

Corinne's husband, Philippe is from a family of perfumers in Grasse. He will give an introduction to aromatherapy in the Mediterranean garden of La Luciole where many medicinal plants grow.
