If you’re looking for a holiday in the stunning surroundings of Brittany, France, to get off the beaten track on coastal and seaside paths, then take a look at this yoga & walking retreat at Gites Guebernez, a two-acre rural retreat in the heart of Brittany.
Morning flowing Dru/Hatha Yoga sessions, daily guided walks to lunar landscape lakes, secluded beaches and seaside cottages along a stunning Breton coastline, following ancient pilgrim paths to Medievel market towns and each evening a three course vegetarian dinner (with local wine should you desire it!) follows a restorative one hour session of mindful movement & yoga nidra/deep relaxation.
Walking & yoga go great together – flowing Dru yoga helps limber up the spine to prevent back ache, and stretches out the muscles before/during and after our walk. Being outdoors in the fresh air clears the mind of fog, then mindful breath/meditation and awareness at the end of the walk helps consolidate all of the benefits.
Investment & bookings: £625 pp for five nights, including gite accommodation, daily continental breakfast, four picnic lunches, one restaurant lunch, four vegetarian three-course dinners at Guebernez, with local wine. Extra nights accommodation can be arranged before and after the retreat. Price excludes: dinner on one night, travel to and from Guebernez via flight or ferry (20% discount with Brittany Ferries is available). Head to Gites Guerbernez TO BOOK!
