About this trip

In the heart of the Côte d'Azur region in the South of France, surrounded by vineyards, the Bastide Avellanne is the perfect oasis to host our next “Vin & Vinyasa” Yoga Retreat.  This will not only be a retreat from our daily lives, but also a cultural experience as we explore the breathtaking scenery & partake in the delicious foods & wines of the area. Indulge the senses with the region’s delicacies as we visit the quaint markets of Provence, savor the flavors of the delicious wines & cheeses from the local vineyard, relax the body with an hour-long massage, & discover the beauty & mysteries of the French Riviera. It will be a magical time to remember as we revitalize our bodies with daily yoga, while replenishing our souls as we explore the cuisine & culture of the Mediterranean.

There will be a day devoted to relaxation at the Bastide Avellanne , starting with an hour-long massage, lounging by the beautiful pool, and ending with a visit from the local winemaker for a wine & cheese tasting. Activities will also include an afternoon exploring the town of Cotignac & its quaint market (lunch included with wine). There will be a full day excursion to the island of Porquerolles located in the Îles d'Hyères, where you can spend the day exploring the town, hiking, biking or relaxing on the beach. Of course, how can we visit the French Riviera without touring the glitz & glamour of St. Tropez. Our week will end will an afternoon spent at Aix-en-Provence.


Bastide Avellanne is situated only 30 minutes from the sea and from the Cote D’Azur. 

There will be a scheduled group pick up from Nice airport on Sunday, May 17th, 2020 at 3 pm and drop-off on the morning of Saturday, May 23, 2020 at 9 am. Arrival outside these times will require you to organize your own transport to the Bastide Avellanne at your own cost. I will be happy to assist you with any additional information.

200 E-RYT certified yoga instructor with an extensive background in martial arts, I strive to bring a welcoming environment to each of my classes while creating a sense of empowerment, ease, and calm.


Wonderful! I had a great time connecting with everyone during this retreat. June designed this trip to really allow our group to experience memorable aspects of yoga practice, Thai culture, sights and cuisine. The retreat was crafted to suit everyone’s level of comfort and skillset, which made for an enjoyable experience. As a beginner in practicing yoga, I felt both fulfilled in my ability to execute the various poses., and quite restored at the end of the retreat. Our dining experience at Taladya was beyond delicious with freshly prepared meals everyday that truly represented authentic Thai cuisine, with some delicious French additions. Overall, I had a great time and look forward to hearing about/participating in future yoga retreats with June.

Namaste Chiang Mai was an experience of a lifetime! The trip was meticulously planned based on research of our host June Li Lo, who experience each of the excursions prior to the retreat. Our yoga classes were tailor-made to accommodate our specific group. The retreat location was beautiful, the owners and staff were warm and welcoming. I can’t wait to see what is in store for her next retreat!
