CURRY YOGA & CYCLING RETREAT: NURTURE YOURSELF
September 30 - Oct. 6, 2018
A six-night Yoga Retreat with Andrea and Christina Curry
Classes will be held Monday-Friday 9:00am-11:30am and 5:00pm-7:00pm. In between classes you are welcome to soak up as much of Provence as you like; take long walks through the property’s vineyard and hills, visit local villages or stick around and enjoy the pool and meditate on the quiet grounds. We have invited world renowned body workers, to offer therapeutic treatments throughout the retreat week. They have expertise in many different modalities and each treatment is a unique, healing, and life-changing experience.
The private and pastoral ambiance of Domaine St Jacques has everything you need to support you during your retreat week and help you remember what peaceful living feels like. There are 10 rooms to rent, each with its own adjoining bathroom, in two separate houses on the expansive property. The layout is such that you can easily find privacy and peace or join the social group. Each of the ten rooms can be single or double occupancy and we encourage you to invite a friend or partner to join you for this incredible opportunity. Rooms will be assigned based on initial deposit.
The retreat will commence Saturday night with a beautiful welcome dinner prepared by Giada Scarton, chef and restaurant owner who specializes in farm to table, organic and local meals expertly prepared with passion and love. Throughout the week you will enjoy delicious, local, fresh, healthy and inspired meals created by Giada. Using fresh ingredients collected from surrounding village markets, Giada’s specialty is creating nourishing dishes packed with flavor and creativity. We are thrilled to have her on our team! We will close the retreat week with a farewell dinner and leave Provence feeling relaxed, revitalized, aligned and enlightened.
The pristine, welcoming, family-run estate will make this trip uniquely authentic. The 12th century houses are furnished in a charming and elegant country style with Provencal antiques and have all of the comforts of the 21st century. Once you are on the estate, let yourself surrender to the experience. The warm and professional staff will ensure that you feel welcome and taken care of. Each room is different, but they all offer the calm, comfort and rest you will need after a long day of yoga and exploration.
Explore Provence by wandering on your own or join us for village tours. The retreat includes two complimentary village tours to some of our favorite locations. Certain local items like fruits, honey, goat cheese, truffles and wine can be purchased from nearby farmers and producers.
We've also added a cycling component to our Provence retreats. Domaine Saint Jacques is located in Blauvac, a village in southeast France, 32 km from Avignon and near the base of the infamous Mont Ventoux, part of the Tour de France. Mild weather in early October makes the region an attractive destination and a classic playground for cyclists and yogis alike, located close to airports in Marseille and Montpellier, as well as the TGV train station in Avignon.
We have partnered with a local cycling company that will create individual daily cycling routes based on your specific needs and desires. Daily yoga classes offer an approachable style that will benefit beginners and experienced yogis alike and will be a wonderful combination with a day of cycling.
