Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in France.
Do you need space to immerse yourself in to the healing elements of nature? Santé Yoga has created a safe space where you can slow down and listen to your own wisdom, with the support and love of practicing yogis/yoginis who are devoted to help guide people to see their light. This package gives you the opportunity to reset and tune into your inner and outer world. Santé yoga is a space that has been created from a passion to be away from pollution and to connect deeply to the rhythms of the earth. This is a no-frills retreat created to bring you back to nature and yourself. No more running away through overstimulating activities. Just a kind home that lives through yogic teachings.
Santé Yoga began as a vision from the founder Danielle and from that the story evolved with the support and love of an inspired and loyal family. This was a vision of union ´Yoga´, creativity, and liberation. Since opening to the public in 2018, Santé Yoga has held a safe space for people to ´just be´ with acceptance and appreciation.
In 2018 Danielle and Jeanette, a mother-daughter team set off on an adventure to bring a vision to life. To start a new experience in France. Bernie, Danielle's Dad remained in the UK to continue to work, he will aim to rejoin the family in France by 2021. This was a selfless sacrifice with faith in the project to one day live a life in nature. So you can see this has been a journey of faith, love and dedication!
Over the past 5 years the family has been using all of their savings and holidays to renovate the space and open it up to the rest of the world. There has been many tears of laughter and frustrations which has created the foundations for this project.
Our team believes in living a healthy life in harmony with nature and one’s own natural self. The moment guests arrive, they will see this reflected all around them in the inviting depths of a valley surrounded by clear rivers, dense forest and expanding life.
Yoga is a lifestyle which expands much further than the poses. It is the union with all. The space gives you a chance to stop, observe and absorb.
We don’t pretend to be superhuman, but we do live our life as aware as our mind and body will allow each day. We open our hearts and our home to people who are inspired by this movement to free themselves from the suffering.
Santé Yoga follows the teachings of Ayurveda “Science of life” to create a routine that gives people a chance to honor their body, with activities based around the circadian rhythm, the seasons and the environmental changes. This is a time for you to welcome the guru which is within and really listen. These patterns can integrate into your life when you return home and will support a healthy and happy life. Life is simple but we make it so complicated.

Santé Yoga is in the heart of the Limousin region of France, in the town called Sussac. Approximately 45 kilometers east of Limoges, the capital, which has regular flights from the UK and daily train services from Paris, Lille, and Toulouse.
The Association is situated next to the river La Combade. Here we have sheep, dogs, cats, and hens on site who roam freely on the land. We also grow a large array of fresh vegetables, which we use in all our meals. This is all maintained with warmth, love, and dedication for the animals and the land we serve. All of this takes place in a deep rural area surrounded by breath-taking views, rolling hills, smooth roads and beautiful lakes (known as the land of a thousand lakes).
We highly recommend hiring a car to explore the beautiful surroundings. You can pick them up at the airport from Europcar or Enterprise, or even at the supermarket, Super U, in the neighboring town of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt.
Our home is located 100 meters away from the healing forest and sits beside a fresh running stream. The nearest lake is a 20-minute walk away, which is safe for swimming. It is the ideal place to relax and have a deep contact with nature and the elements. Accommodation can be in a private room or shared with two to three people, and each comes with a private shower and toilet. On-site there is also a yoga studio, therapy room, pool table, chill out zone, fire pit, barbecue area, library, and much more.
Santé Yoga holds space in the depths of the valley for you to design a retreat that serves you. In 2018, we welcomed many volunteers to support the renovations and development of this sacred space. It is filled with love, laughter, and acceptance. Many guests and volunteers have become friends who keep on coming back to share the love.
Sussac is also home to a local tourist resort offering lake, beach, play area and other amenities. Geographically, the village is located between the capital towns of Limoges and Tulle, approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the A20 autoroute.
Nearby, our guests can visit the ruined chapel on Mont Gargan, which has an impressive command of the region, and the nearest town is Eymoutiers. This is home to a large supermarket and a bustling Saturday market that sells fresh vegetables, cakes, and other wares.
There is also a lovely assortment of shops, cafes, and restaurants where guests can relax and unwind.

Holistic’ comes from the Greek word holos, meaning ‘whole’. Rather than just addressing an immediate symptom, we will look for the underlying cause by considering current physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual states of health and wellbeing. This will support you to restore the body’s natural balance and create an optimum environment to heal and restore yourself.
Holistic therapy is a completely natural and non-invasive treatment, suitable for all ages, which gently but effectively works to restore and maintain the body’s natural balance to encourage the body’s own self-healing.
