We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
Yoga & Ayurveda retreats in France
12th - 19th May and 15th - 22nd September 2012
Yoga and Ayurveda - £695
Spring Awakening Yoga and Ayurveda retreat with Jane Craggs and Louise Tanner £695
After the continued success of these weeks, Jane wanted to find a way to offer participants the best possible experience without spreading her energy too thinly!!
So this year Jane will be sharing the yoga teaching with Louise Tanner, also a student of AG and Indra Mohan. She will be teaching morning classes and also providing one to one sessions to help you with personal practice. Jane will be concentrating her energy on the Ayurvedic consultations and treatments as well as consulting with Adrian and Alex on the food to make sure that everything is appropriate and supportive of each individual and also of the yoga practice.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the ancient life science of India and is one of the oldest systems of healing so far known to man.Like the Chinese system, more commonly referenced in the West, Ayurveda is all about balancing our nature with the elements around us, especially our food. Like Yoga, it is both an art and a science and the two systems can support each other very well when we learn a little more about our own constitution.
Ayurveda is one of the tools that can help us on our path to personal reintegration and living well in the world. This means observing a wholesome diet suitable for our personal constitution and the season, ensuring our lifestyle and daily routine also support a balanced state of mind and taking appropriate therapies such as medicated oil/powder massage, sirodhara(third eye oil stream) and pain treatments with herbal poultices and bolus. With just simple lifestyle adjustments you will be amazed at the vast improvement in health, wellbeing and energy levels.
Yoga Retreat £595
Come and join Jane for this full week dedicated to the practice of mindful,compassionate yoga in a stunning purpose designed setting!! There will be a class before breakfast, before dinner and then a session before bed(usually Yoga Nidra /Meditation) as well as chanting and some one to one work to help you with your home practice.
There will be fresh and delicious vegetarian food 3 times a day(except Wednesday when we go out for the afternoon to one of the beautiful nearby towns and enjoy dinner there).
The beautiful rooms are on a shared basis(there is a surcharge for single rooms) and there will be ample time for enjoying the peaceful environment of Les Passeroses, swimming or simply lounging by the pool, taking a gentle stroll or a more energetic bicycle ride. These retreats are really a wonderful way to switch off from your usual routine and kick start your own practice and more balanced lifestyle.
