SACRED REST RETREAT – 5 DAY RESIDENTIAL YIN YOGA + WELLNESS RETREAT IN SOUTH WEST FRANCE

.

Just imagine waking up slowly, with rays of warm sunshine peaking through the shutters… You take a full body stretch + eventually roll out of the soft white covers, moving your body towards your bedroom door… There you find a warm drink + a nutritious morning snack, to gently wake you up + nourish you at the start of the day

.

You faintly smell incense already burning + hear the soft sounds of Tibetan singing bowls… Or maybe it is the deeply resonant chant of Om quietly carried upon the air to your sleepy chamber… It is the background music that is gently moving your energy, already encouraging you into the healing space that you are about to step into…

.

But there is no rush… You can take your time… You sip the warming tonic, break-the-fast, allow your body to absorb all the goodness…

.

One by one everyone starts to emerge into the space, quietly coming together into the light, white, open barn… You smile at each other as you take your places on yoga mats + meditation cushions… but you are still waking slowly, still honouring what you need… and that’s more than OK…

.

You sit in silent meditation, focusing on the breath… Whatever comes up in this space is absolutely fine, it is a safe space… You have complete permission to just be yourself, be however you need to be, working with a beautiful mix of yin yoga, breath work, guided meditation, visualisation, yoga nidra + Chinese Medicine wisdom…

.

You barely move off the mat – laying or sitting or fully supported – nothing is too challenging, nothing is too much… You don’t have to be an expert at anything, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to, there is no pressure, no perfectionism… It is all super gentle, mindfully healing + beautifully chilled…

.

You then go to the outdoor brunch table on the bright warm terrace… It’s groaning under the weight of all the colourful produce – the fruit, the veggies, the French delights + you get stuck in, your body welcoming the vegan-vegetarian goodness…

.

Lunch + dinner are a purely joyful repeat – including delicious dessert + a warming herbal nightcap in the evening…

.

And when your time is your own… you rest, sleep, breathe, read, journal, lay down on the sun loungers, take a dip in the salt water pool, listen to inspirational podcasts, chat to the other people (or not), walk for miles in the countryside amongst the fields of smiley yellow sunflowers…

.

Whatever YOU need, whatever your body wants, whatever your soul craves, whatever your spirit desires…

.

THIS is sacred rest + it is ALL your own…

.

So, will you join me? Will you honour yourself + the deep, transformational rest that you are seeking?

As someone who travels alone a LOT (read: all the time), I know how tricky + unfair single supplements can be… So for these retreats I have decided to have one rate per person of £997, whether you have a room to yourself, or whether you share with your sister, your bestie, your mum, or your mastermind buddy…

.

However, there are only 6 en-suite twin rooms available – so the only thing I wholeheartedly request is, that if you do come with someone that you could share a room with, I would please kindly ask that you DO share, thereby honouring the opportunity for as many beautiful souls to attend as possible… BUT if you need your own space, then I totally get that too!

.

And if you are travelling by yourself, but feel a little nervous, then I totally understand that too, because I do it super often – it’s all good, you’re not alone, I’ve got you, no worries…

.

Additionally, there are other rooms available in the main farm house, away from the main retreat barn, but these are NOT en-suite + they share a family-style bathroom… But it does mean you can have long, leisurely soaks in the beautiful roll-top bath! So if that is your preference, make sure you let me know when you book below!

.

En-suite rooms will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis (unless you tell me you would PREFER a room that has access to a bath) – so get in quick + reserve your place now!

.

.

 

.

.

.

.

There are options to pay in full, or to spread the investment over 8 months to make it super affordable for everyone – just make sure you choose the right DATE of the retreat you wish to come to!

.

And also be sure to let me know if you are going to share your room with a friend (so I can link you two together!), and if you want an en-suite room (no worries, I definitely always do, it’s a non-negotiable for me!), or whether you would prefer to have access to a beautiful roll-top bath in a shared, family-style bathroom, for long relaxing soaks… Just drop me an email at info@rhiannongriffiths.com
