Rachel vision and promise today is to continually improve herself, her family, her community, her world through yoga and being mindfully connected. Her message that will guide her teaching, writing and healing are for everyone to “Speak Our Own Truth”. When you have the courage to speak the truth, you will stop lying and are able to accept love unconditionally, to yourselves and others. You then will be able to thrive, overcome, and live freely from fear.
My stay at Yoga Beach House was definitely a 10 !!! It was one of the best vacations I've ever had -- the ambiance in the beach house was fantastic, the other guests were terrific and Rachel and James are the most amazing hosts. Plus, Rachel is a super yoga instructor who could handle the different levels in the class (I'm just a yoga novice) as well as bounce between English and French as required to make sure everyone was following correctly. Plus, Biscarrosse is lovely and has a great chill, beach vibe that is just ideal.

Yoga Beach House provided a blissful, relaxed, fun and sociable week. I enjoyed every moment of it. Rachel is a wonderful, humble and caring yoga instructor - capable of providing instructions in English or French. She and her family set a perfect atmosphere in the house which makes everyone feel at home and relaxed. The decor and vibes in the house are ideal - simple, clean and welcoming. The food is gorgeous - organic, vegetarian, home-made and very generous! As well as the beautiful yoga classes (usually twice a day) I also had a powerful Reiki experience, a fabulous Korean massage and a private surf lesson. It's also an enjoyable cycle to the Dune of Pyla. I plan to return again next summer. I would highly recommend a week at the Yoga Beach House. The only reason for knocking a mark off the score, is that Biscarrosse is not easily or cheaply accessible via public transport. Although BlaBlaCar can usually solve that problem!

The Yoga Beach House is incredible and I would recommend it to anyone for a retreat!
Rachel is a fabulous instructor! She adapts and customizes as needed to different levels and helps you progress in whatever you are working on.
The accommodations are wonderful. Rachel, James and their daughter (plus cat and dog) live on the main level and then there are four bedrooms and a bathroom with shared kitchen, living space and huge deck one floor up. The building used to be the railway station in Biscarrosse and they recognize the heritage of their location and honour their little town. Literally 2.5 blocks from the beach, it is perfect access for sunrise and sunset strolls on the incredible sand beach – watch the surfers enjoy the waves. There were options to add on to the set yoga classes with Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga (SUP) on a nearby lake, intensive one-on-one yoga classes, guided meditations etc. Rachel and James provide delicious meals as part of the retreat, but there is a great little fruit/veggie shop 1 block away and a grocery store another two blocks from that. The shared kitchen has everything you need to be able to make your own snacks or full meals. The energy of this retreat house is fabulous and you can tell that Rachel and James have created a great yoga community in this fabulous tourist destination.

The five weeks I spent at Yoga Beach House for training were some of the best and most transformative of my life, albeit challenging. I felt safe there during the emotional times of our training. Rachel was supportive and understanding while maintaining discipline and providing confident guidance. We became close with her family and the community members who attended classes at the beach house as well. Doing our training at an active yoga studio helped to build our confidence. Yoga Beach House became a second home and the people I met there become family. Upon leaving we knew that we continue to have support even though our 200hr training was finished.

Rachel provides a rich and complete teaching of Yoga that she transmits with great love. .... they welcomed me and six other participants (only and not 100), to Yoga Beach House in Biscarosse in their large house near the ocean with the adjoining studio for a complete immersion in the respect of the mode of Yogic. To sum up, I became a yoga teacher in a privileged setting where love, solidarity and respect are the key words and where the teaching is as intense as it is effective. I learned a lot more than I could have imagined and I feel like part of their community. A community in which I have practiced my lessons and to whom I have been able to teach during the course. I would be eternally grateful to them.

A very warm welcome from all the family during my stay at the retreat. Nothing was too much trouble if you had any requests.
I found that the balance was just right between yoga, other activities and time off. I was inspired by the teaching at the retreat and has definitely helped my yoga practice.
The food prepared was healthy, fresh and delicious. Came away from the week feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thanks for the great hospitality all!
