This yoga retreat offers the opportunity to learn and deepen your yoga practice in beautiful surroundings helping you to relax, revive and nourish mind, body and spirit. There will be 10 (8 for 5 day stay) yoga classes that will include the practice of asana, pranayama, meditation and relaxation. Mantra chant is also offered as an option for those interested in learning. The retreat welcomes everyone, all levels and abilities. There will be plenty of opportunity for complete relaxation, peace and tranquility. For those who want more activity there is also plenty to do and see with a choice of paid excursions which are all optional - you do as little or as much as you like.
Sainte Foy is an old hamlet consisting of around 12 houses, several barns and numerous small constructions such as well houses and ancient bread ovens. The chapel, which replaced an earlier version, dates from the 1100’s and is built using the same marvellously crafted stone as the rest of the hamlet. Our houses are sat at the end of the hamlet, overlooking the valley and surrounding hills.

“Raziya’s Yoga Retreats are Five Star quality experiences that reinvigorate your wellbeing, stabilise your dietary system and refresh your body and mind. Raziya has the delivery skills and experience to accommodate a wide range of Yoga abilities within a single group. I had previously attended some of her Men’s Yoga sessions in Swindon before completing my first Faralaya Retreat in May 2015. The Hotel and surrounding area is stunning being situated close to the famous Lycian Way. I was so impressed that I returned to Faralya in May 2016 with my partner and shared a beautiful experience with an amazing group of people. A great and truly refreshing experience!”

Directions

By plane
This is the easiest and most comfortable way to get to Chêne Yoga. Toulouse, Bordeaux and Bergerac are our local airports.

There are regular flights to Bergerac (one hour journey from Chêne Yoga) as well as to Toulouse and Bordeaux (apprx. one hour 20 from Chêne Yoga) airport, which can be reached from most major airports in the UK and Germany. However it might be worth looking for connections via a UK airport for guests from Germany, as even with a stop over in UK, the total price can be a lot cheaper than booking only via German airports, without a stop over.
Please get in touch with us if there is any questions. We are happy to assist you with your bookings.
