KUNDALINI YOGA RETREAT FOR WOMEN
LA BALIE | SOUTH WEST FRANCE
8TH – 12TH JUNE 2019
with Kathryn McCusker & Catherine Page

 

AWAKEN YOUR FEMININE POWER
A women’s retreat to reconnect, recharge and transform

This four day retreat is set in the beautiful countryside of Lot-et-Garonne, South West France. You will connect with a supportive community of women and learn lifestyle tips for empowerment, beauty, hormonal balance and radiance through the practice of Kundalini Yoga. Join us at La Balie to awaken your feminine power for confidence, grace, vitality and transformation. Everyone is welcome, whether you are an experienced Kundalini yogi or a complete beginner.

DAILY YOGA
Our retreat begins on the evening of June 8th and will end after breakfast on the morning of June 12th.

Your day will begin with an energising morning yoga class followed by a delicious breakfast served on the terrace. There will be plenty of time either side of lunch to relax, swim in the beautiful salt-water pool, read, enjoy the gardens of La Balie or explore the local villages. Our early evening class will include a meditation and a relaxing gong bath, followed by a nourishing vegetarian dinner. 

Each class will include movement, mantra, meditation, dance and transformative breath work to calm the body and mind and elevate the spirit.

Daily yoga practice will take place either in our beautiful studio with stunning views over rolling countryside or outside in the meadow where practice will end with the sound of the ancient church bells rolling gently through the valley, as they have for hundreds of years.

Testimonial from last year’s Kundalini Yoga Retreat, ‘Finding Balance in a Fast Paced World’ with Catherine and Kathryn – 
‘La Balie was my first experience of a yoga retreat and now I can’t imagine going on any others. The combination of enlightening kundalini and mediation sessions, beautiful surroundings, delicious food and excellent company was truly nourishing to my body and soul. I’ve kept in touch with the ladies I met and incorporated what I’ve learnt into my daily life – but that won’t stop my from returning again!’ Charlotte, London
