Relax & Restore Yogalates Retreat

27th - 31st May 2020

Carcassonne, France

How often do you take time out for yourself?

These days, our fast-paced digital lifestyles can leave us feeling drained, frazzled and increasingly isolated. Even on holiday, it can be a struggle to let go and find time for ourselves.

What would it feel like to immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility of the mountains for five days?

No family members to look after, no meals to cook, no emails…

A fun and relaxing rural break, this retreat offers you the chance to unplug from responsibilities, immerse yourself in nature and reconnect.

With delicious, heart-warming meals prepared for you, and a varied programme of classes and activities, you won’t need to worry about a thing!

Expect daily Yogalates classes, nightly Yin Yoga & guided meditation, lovingly prepared meals (made with fresh, local ingredients) and plenty of free time and space to relax or explore these stunning surroundings at the foothills of the Pyrenees.

 

Watch the mist rolling in the valley below, and see the sun travel across the sky…

Discover your own slice of paradise, whether that’s exploring the surrounding woodlands and vineyards, taking a dip in the pool, or relaxing in a hammock with a good book!

This is your time to spend however you wish.

“For the second year I have had the great pleasure to attend Beth’s yoga retreat. I can only recommended it. It makes you feel so good, in great shape (body and soul) and light as a feather.  Looking forward to next year’s retreat.”

Classes

IMG_4992edit.jpg

Classes will be at a beginner to intermediate level and men and women of all ages and levels of ability are welcome.

Morning Yogalates

The daily morning practice will be a slow and steady yet dynamic fusion of Hatha Yoga and Pilates, known as Solomon Yogalates™.

This award-winning method intelligently combines core-stabilising mat Pilates exercises with traditional, heart-opening Yoga practices.

Connecting breath and movement in a way that will leave you feeling strong, energised and simply blissful.

Ready for the day ahead.

Evening Yin & Meditation

Evening classes will be a much slower and more restorative affair, helping you wind down at the end of each day. 

Restorative Yin Yoga postures help release chronic tension, with gentle massages and guided meditation to encourage a deep and restful night’s sleep.

 

Your teacher

Beth Morgan (founder of Yogalates London) will be leading all classes for this retreat.

Beth has been teaching since 2014 and has advanced teaching qualifications in Solomon Yogalates, Yin Yoga and Hatha Yoga.

She is a strong believer in the transformative powers of yoga and meditation in these technology focused, fast paced times of ours, and is passionate about helping people discover greater ease and freedom of movement in their bodies, as well as the profound peace of mind that comes from regular practice.

 

Sound healing & reiki evening

We are also very lucky to have Sara Nori leading a special Sound healing & Reiki evening for us, as part of the retreat programme.

Sara is a qualified transformational coach and sound & reiki healer (as well as being our wonderful cook!).

Blending ancient tradition with modern practice, this unique session will use music and breath work to guide you to a calmer state of being, dropping back into the body and letting go of stress.

All classes are completely optional on this retreat; you can do as much, or as little, as you like!

 
“After the retreat I felt amazing for over a week! My sleeping pattern was back to normal and I was much more relaxed.”

Food & Nourishment

IMG_4424.jpg

Throughout the retreat we will be nourishing you with the most beautiful organic whole foods and harnessing the energetics of food to specifically support your time to restore and replenish.

All our food will be specially chosen and prepared by Macrobiotic chef Sara Nori, and you will discover pure magic on your plate every day.

A strong believer that food and the way we feed ourselves can support a more natural, vital way of living, Sara's dream is to share this holistic approach in a simple, accessible way for anyone.

Expect warm summer salads, fresh healthy juices, yummy plant-based mains and naturally sweet desserts…

One evening meal will be themed around the classic tastes from the South of France, using fresh, local produce from the Occitanie area.

All dietary requirements can be catered for. 

 

Cooking class with Sara - ‘Nourish Body, Heart and Soul

During the retreat, Sara will be offering ‘Nourish Body, Heart and Soul’; a cooking class where we will talk about how food makes us feel, what we crave, what our bodies want and how to feed ourselves from a loving place, whilst still enjoying every bite.

This on site cooking class is an optional extra and attendance is £35 p/p.

“Beth’s retreat was a wonderful experience for mind and body. A truly stress releasing combination of exercise, stretching and mindfulness. 5 stars also have to go to Sara’s amazing vegetarian meals made from locally sourced produce and with an obvious love for the nurturing aspects of food and good company!”
— Julia McFarlane, Fulham
