5 Days Yogic Mindfulness for a Demanding World, Vegan Retreat in France

Yobaba Lounge, 16 Rue du Presbytere, 11230 Chalabre, Languedoc Roussillion, France

Exhausted at the thought of getting up in the morning?

Is your life is so busy that you don't even have time to lose the will to live?

Get your mojo back with 5 days on retreat with us. We will use the powerful tools of Embodied Meditation to release that energy for life that you lost a while back; reconnect you with your inner visionary; feel excited. We will slow down, we will come back into our body and relearn how to feel and live in color.

During this retreat, you will feel relief with daily periods of silence when you do not have to speak or respond to anyone. We have 3 daily sessions of Embodied Meditation and we will look after all your practical needs whilst you get back in touch with yourself.

You will leave feeling energized and inspired and take with you simple and effective tools to practice at home.

We are located in a small village chateau in an unspoiled medieval village and are loved for our gorgeous accommodation, outrageous vegan food, and our rich, soulful approach to yoga and meditation.

Facilities

  • Dining area
  • Fireplace
  • Garden
  • Labyrinth
  • Yoga shala

The house is vast, with an informal walled garden offering hammocks and a labyrinth for walking meditation. The yoga shala is on the top floor of the house, overlooking the medieval rooftops. There are three very large bedrooms, each individually styled, sharing two bathrooms.

There are two further enormous suites with their own bathroom on the first floor. The bedrooms have a certain monastic simplicity, uncluttered and candlelit, but they are huge and look as if they have been styled by Elle decoration.

For guests with allergies, the house was renovated using low-toxin and natural materials. Guests with cat allergies need to be aware that cats visit the garden from neighboring properties, but are not permitted in the house.
