Orenda Yoga Holiday France Program

During this retreat, Stephanie Mason, a highly experienced therapist and counselor and Leila El Krekshi, a yoga teacher, will guide you to find meaning in this chaotic world and turn the page for a brighter beginning.

Often, you might find yourself living in constant fear, always trying to control situations and people so that things go on your way. Then, when those people and situations don’t match up with the idealistic picture you have in your mind, you become stressed, depressed, angry, and anxious.

This program will allow you to become more not less of who you are, to let go those feelings that prevent you from being your true self. You will learn to have time and patience to discover your inner self at your own pace. You will experience a daily morning yoga, meditation, and pranayamas (breathing techniques) along with a daily private 60-minute life coach counseling session. You will experience four hours total during this retreat.

If you are looking to find a purpose and meaning in a rather chaotic world and are ready to receive support to move toward a more sustainable sense of peace and inner power no matter what is happening on your life’s journey, then you are in the right place.

What you will learn in this transformational retreat

  • Maintain your sense of peace, purpose, meaning, and joy not only when life is going smoothly but also in your most challenging times
  • Gain insight in how to remain objective and nonjudgmental in your life whether you are going through negative or positive moments
  • Apply tips that you can use right away to let go and experience peace
