BEACH YOGA RETREAT IN FRANCE JULY + AUGUST 2017
Bliss out on a beach yoga retreat in sunny France this summer. There’ll be lots of yoga (vinyasa, yin and restorative hatha yoga), yummy organic food and of course free time to spend at the beach.
6 retreats, each 6 nights, starting Sunday 9th July, last one ends Aug 19th.
Yoga includes at least 10 hours of vinyasa, yin and restorative hatha yoga classes with beach sessions, studio classes and workshops focused on improving technique. Additional optional free meditation sessions are added to the schedule during the week or sometimes after classes.
Our aim is to advance your physical alignment and add elegance, core strength and breathing techniques to your yoga practice. Classes are mixed with members of our community club and take place either in the morning or evenings in the studio or on the beach (a 2 minute walk from the house).
The retreats take place in Biscarrosse-Plage, Landes, France. Biscarrosse Plage is a hidden paradise on the South West coast of France. This beautiful beach has been a well-kept secret, it boasts the most beautiful stretch of coastline but does not suffer from the crowds of Hossegor or Mimizan.
The moment you see the beach in Biscarrosse, you will fall in love with the golden sands, the rolling waves, the powerful ocean, and the warm sunshine. The Yoga Beach House is a stone’s throw away from the beach, you can fall asleep to the crash of the waves on a warm summer evening. The town is small, there are all the amenities you might need close by, cash machine, local shops, surf shops such as Roxy, Billabong and Ripcurl.
What past guests enjoy most with our retreats is that each day is different and the schedule is adapted to the temperature, mood and energy of the day and the house. However, the general order of the day goes like this:
YOGA & MEDITATION
EAT Organic Brunch
REST / Optional activity
EAT Organic Dinner
YOGA & MEDITATION
SLEEP, repeat tomorrow….
You will be staying at Yoga Beach House. The Yoga Beach House is beautifully restored, when you walk into the house you feel its warmth surround you, you feel at home here. You will instantly make a new friend with the yogi dog Hari who is always ready for a cuddle or a play. The pine floors, the clean decor, the comfortable beds, the shutters which provide black out for a perfect night’s sleep, everything has been thought of to make your stay even more comfortable.
The yoga studio is a beautiful building, on site and decorated throughout with local pine. It is a safe haven with doors that open out onto a yoga terrace for warm summer evening practice. Their private accommodation offers guests a peaceful, welcoming, and rejuvenating stay. Everyone is made to feel at home, with shared kitchen, and bathroom facilities. You will also get access to free WiFi, however, you might want to put yourself on a digital detox during your stay to really get the best of your retreat.

“I recommend this place to have a great time, you can do yoga with Rachel who is a fabulous teacher, surf, paddle, you can eat very good and healthy food. Don’t hesitate ! ” – Anne
“Excellent service: warm and always smiling welcome from Rachel and James, courses adapted to all levels. The frame of the Yoga studio also contributes to the sensation of disconnection: entirely in wood, fire of chimney, sun diving during the sessions of the morning, background music in perfect synchronicity … All that 5 minutes of the beach! Namaste!” – David
“The house is the image of Rachel and James. Warm and welcoming. Rachel takes her class with a smile, benevolence and a little exotic British accent. The place smells good, the wood burner crackle in the evening classes and the playlist is always well chosen. The course is never the same, Rachel is constantly renewing. One comes out with a real and deep energy. And an envy: to start again!”- Caroline
“To be warmly welcomed by the whole family during my stay at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for them if we did not ask. I found it to be exactly between yoga, other activities and free time. I was inspired by the retired teachers and helped my yoga well. The food is prepared healthy, fresh and delicious. We returned from the week feeling relaxed and relaxed. Thank you for the wonderful sense of hospitality! – Jennifer
