In the heart of Southwest France, nestle among many local vineyards, Domaine de Mournac is the perfect oasis to host our “Vin & Vinyasa” Yoga Retreat. This will not only be a retreat from our daily lives, but also a cultural experience as we revitalize our bodies with daily yoga, while replenishing our souls as partake in the delicious foods & wines of the area. We will enjoy deliciously prepared meals, locally sourced, by our own personal retreat chef, who will take us on a culinary tour each day. Most meals will be vegetarian with a few exceptions for dinner. Of course there will be wine & dessert during dinner & how can we not be in France without having croissants? Therefore, fresh pastries shall be delivered to the retreat from local boulangerie on alternate mornings with our breakfast.
We will enjoy the region’s delicacies as we visit the Sunday market, sample the delicious wines from the local vineyard, and relax the mind with an hour-long massage. We will explore the mysteries of the region as we tour Rennes Les Chateau, & discover the beauty of the surrounding area as we hike up to Mont Sec. A visit to the romantic Puilarens Castle is a must with its stunning views of the surrounding area & its impressive building of ciganes (a zig-zag of fortified paths leading up to the main gate). If you are looking for quiet relaxation, spend an afternoon of quiet time in a hammock or by the pool, or linger amidst the vines or through the woodland that surrounds the property. All activities are included in the price. It will be a magical time to remember as we revitalize our bodies with daily yoga, while replenishing our souls with delicious foods & wine surrounded among the Pyrenees Mountains.
