Yoga Thym, La Haute Laudais, 44110 Chateaubriand, Loire-Atlantique, Pays de la Loire, France

Yoga Retreat Pays de la Loire

Changing The Way Forward

After six successful years at Yoga Thym like everyone, they are having to adjust to a new way of operating to find a workable solution to this ongoing world crisis.

Yoga Thym welcome you into their home for your retreat experience, social distancing, and shared bathrooms have caused us concern for your safety and theirs.

This has given us two choices:

  • To close completely until after a vaccine is found and administered
  • To change our retreat into a one-on-one private and personal experience

Yoga Thym understands that for some, participating in retreats is about sharing life experiences with like-minded spirits but we must all do our part in these unusual circumstances to keep safe and beat this virus.

That is why from 1st August 2020, Yoga Thym will re-open our doors offering a bespoke and personal journey; one-on-one with Nikki, enjoying private tuition in yoga, meditation, and the art of living. All in the safety of our unique little bubble in the French rural countryside.

Yoga Thym is one of the best retreats in France. Demand is always higher than our usual low capacity of four but now that is even lower; one 4-day retreat for one person only. Book your place quickly before it sold out! Yoga Thym hopes to meet you soon.

Part of the attraction of this retreat is that you stay in Nikki's home complex, a quaint 300-year-old farmhouse and buildings set amongst the Breton and French countryside.

Surrounded by her family, Nikki has lived in her home for over twenty years with Mum, Sylvie, and their two little family pet dogs Leo and Belle.

Some of the old farm buildings have been converted, too; one into a home for her youngest son, David and his family, and another for the yoga studio and guest accommodation.

The Lodge

On the ground floor is the studio exercise space and toilet. The upper floor has a large double bedroom for single occupancy, a bathroom with bath/shower and sink, a toilet. During the COVID-19 crisis, the second bedroom has been converted for this temporary period into a workshop room and lounge area. There is also a massage room, too.

Meals are taken in the Farmhouse

During the summer, we eat outside under the shade of the wisteria pergola looking out over the enclosed garden full of colored flowers and shady green trees. On cooler evenings, we relocate to the large open-plan kitchen/diner, the ‘hub and bub’ of Nikki’s family life.

Retreat location

This private journey of peace, clarity, and inspiration to transform your mind and body is set among idyllic rural countryside in north-west France.

Just on the northern tip of La Pays de le Loire, Chateaubriant is an old market town central to the large cities of Rennes, Nantes, and Angers.

It has a colorful history of Royal connections, a large Renaissance Chateau, Monuments dedicated to the Resistance Movement during world war two and building associated with the writer, Victor Hugo.

Less than 5-minutes by foot, we have a cycle route that takes you into the stunning countryside which is perfect for a safe mindful walk.
