About this trip

Next June,  join us for a week away in Beynac,  a village in southwest France along the River Dordogne, with Lila Heller and guest teacher Katie Cummins. This week you will move well, eat well and be well. This week is what dreams are made of.  We will play, relax, connect with the land, each other and ourselves.  Enjoy yoga, Pilates, Breathwork and Lila's unique blend of neurology and movement. Let's delve into Joy and experience childlike wonder. Experience the beauty that exists all around us and within us.


The Dordogne is blessed in so many ways. From the region’s esteemed vineyards to its medieval castles; a rich literary heritage to the Palaeolithicpower of Lascaux (and many other) prehistoric caves, this is a region where, once you’ve nourished body and mind, you’ll find many more ways to feed heart and soul.

If you’d prefer to complement the peace and serenity of your movement retreat with a little more adrenaline, you can do that too. From kayaking to hot air ballooning and even surfing, you’ll find plenty of adventure close by.


Chateau de Bardouly is located outside the city of Bergerac in the Dordogne Region of Southwestern France.  Bergerac lies between the larger cities of Bordeaux and Toulouse.  The area is renowned for its distinctive history, world-class vineyards and picturesque countryside.  Bardouly is the perfect home base to easily explore the Dordogne.


Staying full-board in a luxurious French chateau with home comforts including private heated outdoor saltwater swimming pool, indoor yoga studio (fully equipped), tennis court, library, outdoor yoga deck and Zen garden. Vegetarian/Vegan based menu.



This will be an intimate retreat. There will be plenty of time for group activities and solo time as well. Time to explore the countryside and nearby cities, towns and time to enjoy the grounds. We can't wait to spend this week with you!

Once again, Lila’s retreat at Bell Valley exceeded expectations, which were already high from previous retreats! It was an incredible weekend of community, movement, and insight. Thank you to Lila for bringing us together!

Incredible. I leave feeling 2 inches taller and with a much stronger core - and greater awareness of my body and breath!! Highly recommend a retreat with Lila. And, Mar de Jade is such a special place. Founded by a US-trained Mexican-american medical doctor with heart for her community, this space has given back to the community with medical care, preschool and jobs training skills!

Thank you Lila for creating a lovely day of self-care and movement. It was exactly what I needed. I enjoyed the balance of stillness, reflection, fun, collaboration, connection and strengthening exercises. The body awareness that classes with you activate last through the days that follow. Enjoyed all the offerings of each modality and instructors. Looking forward to more retreats at home and in person. Thank you for a truly heart-opening experience.

By Judith D for Journey to the Heart 2020! on 24 Feb, 2020
Lila did a fantastic job of creating a well balanced retreat. Holding time for movement, personal reflection and laughter. The facility was peaceful and beautiful. There were amazing views and hiking trails and the accommodations were rustic but very very comfortable. The food was healthy and delicious, i looked forward to every meal. I appreciated that folks could engage when they wanted and step back if they preferred. Looking forward to doing another retreat with Lila soon!
