7th to 10th of June 2019: Yoga & Plant-based Cooking

Marie & Marica are pleased to invite you to share moments of calmness, peace and serenity in the heart of an enchanting place in the hinterlands of Nice, nestled on top of a plateau surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains. Come to enjoy a space leading to self-exploration, mindfulness and energetic work where each breath gives rhythm to the creation of the life necklace that is yoga. Let’s share moments of benevolence, joy and love around amazing, gourmet, and meaningful cooking workshops.

During this magical parenthesis of transformation, rediscover access to our inner strength, our sacred intuition and our infinite joy.

The days will start by energizing and yang yoga in the morning with Hatha Yoga and Pranayama, and a relaxing practice with Yin Yoga, Yoga of Sound and Nidras in the late afternoon. This complementary work will gradually restore the path of balance.

This retreat is also dedicated to learning about plant-based cooking with chef Marica Concilio, creator of Lilli & Le Vegabon, coach in plant-based nutrition for many years and who will share with happiness her experience of this food transition for more kindness, health and ethics.

We will enjoy the beautiful surroundings to walk in awareness in the beauty of the mountains, rivers and forests of the hinterlands of Nice. Nature inspires us and will be our mysterious guide.
