Take a break from your daily life obligations and routines, and come to the beautiful 'La Luciole' villa in the South of France, French Riviera for a healing and relaxing retreat. Take the time to focus only on yourself. This yoga retreat is a place for you to grow stronger and more flexible, a place to meditate and heal at your own pace, where you can just take the time to indulge yourself in rest and relaxation. Let this be a precious rejuvenating time you know you deserve!
During your stay at La Luciole you will be given daily yoga lessons with Corinne Payne. Your yoga classes will be with a maximum of ten people, conducted in a beautiful and peaceful Mediterranean setting to calm your senses and reset your energies. Corinne’s 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.
You will begin by bringing your awareness to your breath, being mindful of 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.
And finally, an assimilation time to allow the body and mind to refresh and regenerate with a focus on relaxation. You will end the yoga session with a guided Shavasana for deep relaxation, releasing stress and tension, improving concentration and insomnia, and stimulating blood circulation.
Corinne can also teaches Yin yoga on request, a practice that cultivates a deep sense of awareness through the release of mind and body stress.
Corinne's husband is a French painter from the area and knows much of the history here and will be able to discuss this with you. He can also give on request and free of charge an art history discussion on the area in the evening, or a painting class in the afternoon. You may see his work at artmajeur's website (Philippe Metaireau).
During this retreat, you will be served a welcome dinner, daily continental breakfast, and 3 days full board Provencal cuisine.
