About this trip

A joy-filled food and yoga focused retreat in the south of France! Come join us for the weekend as we step far away from the daily grind and step back into nourishment and alignment. Unwind and unplug as you take in the view of the Rhone river from the peaceful, fully-restored, old monastery where we will be staying in the village of Vallabrègues. Indulge in twice-daily yoga practice and meditation with Julia Mitton, founder and owner of Arles Yoga. Dive-in to delicious, fall-inspired food made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients and prepared by chef Lina Caschetto. Gather with other like-minded souls and take part in curated culinary experiences unique to the Provencal region like visits to local olive presses, vineyards and the Camargue rice fields. Savour local natural wines and autumnally-inspired cocktails while we cozy-up fireside to reflect on the year that has been and set intentions that will help guide us through the end of 2018. Our November retreat intends to bring together all the nurturing goodness that fall food and yoga can provide in order to awaken and expand your authentic joie de vivre as we head towards midwinter.


More Than a Feeling - Food + Yoga Retreats are a joyful and seasonal exploration into the fine indulgence of nourishment, alignment and living an authentic good life hosted by Julia Mitton and Lina Caschetto.

I'm a canadian who somehow ended up living in the south of France :). Could be worse, I know! I got into the restaurant industry in Paris, where I lived for 8 years. Took a travelling restaurant, The Paris Popup, on the road for a couple of years before settling in the south of France, in Arles, and opening a couple of restaurants here and in Marseille! One is a chefs-in-residency program where I host travelling chefs from all over the world! This inspired me to open a yoga studio based on the same principles: I host travelling teachers from all over! Yoga is my biggest passion, my biggest purpose, my greatest devotion, and I am dedicated to sharing the practice with as many people as I can because I really believe it can change the world. A second love is food! I am a huge 'gourmand' as they say in France - I love to discover new tastes, delicious wines, beautiful products! Can't wait to start creating these incredible food + yoga retreats with the formidable Lina Caschetto :-)!
