Our mornings will be filled with yummy nutritious food and scenic hikes. Our afternoons will be playful and relaxing. We will rest in the hot tub and dip in the pool before optional volleyball and ping pong matches. In the evenings we will join again for a yang exercise class and a yin yoga session, a beautiful balance of effort and restoration. Then we will have dinner and an enchanting fireside conversation.

Accomodation: We have a lovely villa just outside of Valbonne, France. It is comfortable and surrounded by beauty. Each room has a private bath. But most of your time will be spent outdoors be it on the trail or around the pool. A few private rooms are available.
