The Field has accommodation for 10 indoors, and plenty of space for camping, if you prefer to sleep under the stars. The rooms are eco-responsibly restored from an old barn and pigsty, using only repurposed and recycled materials. They have two single rooms and three twin and doubles, two with shared bathroom, and one double with an en-suite. There is a separate kitchen shared between all guests, so if you prefer to make your own food, or you don't want a completely vegan week, you will have the opportunity to make some dishes for yourself also.

Program

This wonderful week of yoga, Pilates, and vegan food is based in an old farmhouse with amazing vista views of the quiet French countryside. Your wonderful instructors will guide you through your yoga and Pilates practice each day and also be available to help you answer individual questions throughout the week.

There is plenty of space on the property, and ample free time for you to relax, meditate, read, be crafty, or join other activities that happen around the farm should you wish. With several local attractions, there are also plenty of places close by for you to explore if you'd rather get out and about.

The retreat starts in the afternoon of your arrival day. Guests will have time to settle in and relax after their journey, then depending on their arrival time, you will do some basic exercises and stretching before your welcome vegan dinner.

Mornings will start with Eric's yoga class, followed by a refreshment break - or breakfast if you haven't had it yet!

After this, everyone will have some free time to do as they wish. There are places to read, meditate, sketch, write, or simply soak up the view before lunch.

After lunch break, you will start Helen's Pilates class and workshop, where there will be plenty of time for questions, requests, and some fun too.

If it's hot, you might want to jump in the plunge pool before dinner.

Those wanting to learn to cook the delicious vegan food you'll be eating are welcome to join Eric in the kitchen while he's creating.

There will be one morning or afternoon set aside for some sightseeing should you wish to visit one or more of the local attractions. There is plenty to see nearby, and a break in the schedule is very beneficial.

They usually round-up the week in the evening before your travel day, but there is the possibility to do some easy stretching exercises for anyone leaving later in the day.

Pilates

Pilates is both a physical and mental body-conditioning program, which uses exercise to restore natural, normal movement and good posture. It increases body awareness, flexibility, strength, tone, coordination, stamina, and general health.

Vegan food

A vegan diet is one that consists of only plant-derived foods. Vegans don't use or consume any animals or animal products (land or sea animals), including meat, hide, bone, milk, eggs, or honey.

So what do vegans eat? You'd be surprised- there is a whole world of exciting foods to be explored. With incredibly diverse flavours made up of fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, seeds, beans, and pulses, not only can all your favourite things, from cookies to pizzas be made suitable for a vegan diet, but your list of new favourite dishes is sure to expand.

Your creativity and curiosity will grow as you realize the endless combinations that will leave you wanting more.

Retreat location

The Field Retreat is nestled in the rolling hills of the Creuse countryside. It is wonderfully peaceful, surrounded by fields, trees, and breathtaking views. The surrounding area is dotted with tiny hamlets, pretty villages, a forest and has a wealth of history to discover. There is a blueberry farm, and an animal sanctuary that host visitors, and an activity centre, all within a few minutes drive.

There are several cafés, bars and restaurants in the nearest village run by very friendly and welcoming hosts. Each village has its own market day, where the local farmers sell their fresh produce and many local artisans sell their creations.

A superb place to visit, whether you are looking for plenty of activities and places to visit or just to relax and unwind.
