Get Mindful in the Pyrénées

July 15-20, 2018  Pyrénées, France

The practice of yoga and meditation go far beyond moving your body into shapes and forcing yourself to sit still. It's about living your yoga, being present, and observing the "Self" as we move through this world. Trekking through the Pyrénées is the perfect place to put these practices into action. Monitoring your breath, the surface that’s ahead, the feel of the earth beneath your feet, and the ambience of your surroundings requires you to drop into nature as if you’re being re-birthed into this earth. We invite you to join us for 5 days of adventure hiking and trekking high mountains of the Pyrénées full of yoga, mountain meditation.

Retreat package includes: 

  • Gite accommodations (includes home-cooked brunch and dinners)
  • Guided meditation daily with Hillary Talbott 
  • Personal Nakshatra Meditation Mantra 
  • Daily Yoga with Jade Skinner

Part of our stay is a house share with the lovely family of our Mountain Guide, Mandy. We will be backpacking up to refuges for about 3 days, which means lake baths or no showers. If living rough and rugged is not your cup of tea, then you may want to check out uber posh Sweden Retreat.
