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.

Program

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 integrally, gently and safely, 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. Then, you will move through gentle warm-up asanas to sun salutations, followed by strengthening and balancing poses, and then wind down with some deeper stretches to increase flexibility. You will end the yoga session with a guided Savasana for deep relaxation. Corinne can also teach Yin yoga on request.
