Come join Corinne on a joyful yoga escape in the magnificence of the back country of French Riviera! She will guide you through yoga practices that will bring yourself to focus, clarity, and relaxation. This is a space to grow stronger and heal at your own pace, a perfect opportunity for you to stop, take a breathe, and love yourself. You will also be able to enjoy the beauty of the rolling hills or the coast of the Riviera, this is surely something you will not want to miss out on!
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 Payne. Your yoga classes will be with a maximum of eight people, conducted in a calm setting. Her practice is Hatha 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 Svasana for deep relaxation. Corinne can also teach Yin yoga on request.
Corinne's husband is a painter from the area and knows much of the history there. They offer guided walks in the hills with magnificent views of the Riviera or along the coast as well in the afternoon for those interested.
Corinne is a Canadian and her husband is French. She is a registered Hatha yoga teacher with her Anusara-inspired certificate in progress. Her practice is Hatha yoga, inspired by Anusara principles of alignment and energy. She did her yoga training with Natalie Rousseau in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and has been teaching now for four years in the South of France.
This retreat will take place on the French Riviera, tucked between seaside resorts of Cannes and Nice, in the hillside village of Opio. The Provençal property offers a peaceful and luxurious setting, with beautiful views over rolling hills and out to the Italian alps.
