About this trip

When they created the Paris Popup together, Laura, Harry and Julia started cooking and traveling around the world organising events in various locations, adapting each time to different places, people, cultures and products. 

In 2016, they opened the restaurant Chardon, their chef in residence program in Arles. 

In 2018, they opened their first fixed restaurant La Mercerie in Marseille and Harry finally had a kitchen to create in. 

Julia founded Arles Yoga in 2016 and hosted many talented yoga teachers in her studio in Arles. She is a certified yoga teacher that has studied in Sri Lanka, Bali and India and her teaching styles include upbeat vinyasa fows set to music, delicious Yin classes that weave meditation, chakra-activations, and chinese meridians, as well as more traditional hatha asana practice with a focus on breath and alignment. 

She also loves Bhakti Yoga, or "devotional yoga" which involves delightful story-telling and singing/chanting, so you can expect some of that in her classes, too!

Laura, also a devout  yogi, is a renowned force in the world of wine both in France and Canada, and was awarded the Best sommelier of France 2020 by the Gault et Millau. Among other passions, she loves introspective talks fired up by card-reading and archetypal mythology to start electrifying conversations about the quest to find your true self and live in the present moment.  Dinner won't be boring !

Uniting their interests, these three entrepreneurs have decided to host a fabulous retreat where all their passions can be enjoyed together: their love of yoga, wine, food and creating a warm and caring environment. 

Delicious food prepared by Harry, amazing wine and non alcoholic beverages curated by Laura and an incredible series of soulful classes led by Julia await! 

Bonuses: added workshops, experiences, men's and women's circles will but updated as we include more retreat leaders.
