Retreats

16-23 August 2017 – Le Vieux Donjon, France

‘The Vibrant Male’ with Andy Butterfield

Amid the peace and quiet of rural France, we gather to awaken and amplify the vibrant currents of energy within. First connecting to the ground to develop strong and stable foundations, we can then ascend, combining the wonderful aspects of Tantra to help us on this journey to unfolding, opening and thriving. Posture, pranayama, mantra, meditation and playful partner work will be your map. Peace, joy and wellbeing your destination.

You will arrive in the afternoon on Wednesday 16th August, in time for dinner around 7pm.
The classes start with yoga each morning at 8am followed by breakfast at 9.30am. There will be another morning session after breakfast, from 10.30am to 11.30am. The focus here will be meditation, bodywork or partner work. After lunch, you can relax and enjoy the garden, pool and hammam. The evening session will normally resume 4.30pm to 6.00pm with after dinner meditation sessions sometimes as well.
Departure is Wednesday 23rd August after lunch.
