Date: 1-8 June 2019
This week is meant for those who love Yoga and Nature and who would love to learn to connect on a deeper level with Nature: with the Elements, Plants, Animals and with the Earth. In this retreat we intend to connect and to communicate with Nature on a subtle level. Our yoga and meditation sessions will be designed around this theme.There will be 2 yoga & meditation sessions a day, in which we’ll practice our alignment and attunement. Each morning we'll also have a practical session outside in Nature, where we'll explore and connect with different Nature kingdoms. La Borde Blanque is situated on a hill, at the border of a lake, surrounded by forests and at the feet of the Pyrenees. On the compound we have our domestic friends, our horses, dogs and a cat colony, but in and around there is also a variety of smaller and bigger wildlife and a rich flora.On some days our practical outdoor session will be combined with a lovely hike in the beautiful surroundings of La Borde Blanque.

We begin and end the days with yoga and meditation, in which our connection with nature will be central. No experience with yoga or meditation is required, but when you are experienced, there will be plenty of opportunity to deepen your experience. The sessions will be adjusted to meet your needs.
Then we'll have breakfast and prepare for our Outdoor session, concluded by a gathering and sharing round. After lunch there is a free afternoon, followed by a second yoga session and dinner. In the evening there is another meditation.
