How often do you take time out for yourself?
These days, our fast-paced digital lifestyles can leave us feeling drained, frazzled and increasingly isolated. Even on holiday, it can be a struggle to let go and find time for ourselves.
What would it feel like to immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility of the mountains for five days? No family members to look after, no meals to cook, no emails…
A fun and relaxing rural break, this retreat offers you the chance to unplug from responsibilities, immerse yourself in nature and reconnect. With delicious, heart-warming meals prepared for you, and a varied programme of classes and activities, you won’t need to worry about a thing.
Expect daily Yogalates & Yin classes, guided meditation, lovingly prepared meals (made with fresh, local ingredients) and plenty of free time and space to relax or explore these stunning surroundings at the foothills of the Pyrenees.
Watch the mist rolling in the valley below, and see the sun travel across the sky…
Discover your own slice of paradise, whether that’s exploring the surrounding woodlands and vineyards, taking a dip in the pool, or relaxing in a hammock with a good book! This is your time to spend however you wish.

The daily morning practice will be a slow and steady yet dynamic fusion of Hatha Yoga and Pilates, known as Solomon Yogalates™. This award-winning method intelligently combines core-stabilising mat Pilates exercises with traditional, heart-opening Yoga practices, connecting breath and movement in a way that will leave you feeling strong, energised and simply blissful. Ready for the day ahead.
Evening Yin & Meditation
Early evening classes will be a much slower and more restorative affair, helping you wind down at the end of each day. Restorative & Yin Yoga postures help release chronic tension, with gentle massages and Yoga Nidra guided meditation to encourage a deep and restful night’s sleep.
All classes are completely optional on this retreat; you can do as much, or as little, as you like!
Your teacher – Beth Morgan (founder of Yogalates London)
Beth will be leading all classes for this retreat. She has been teaching since 2014 and has advanced qualifications in Solomon Yogalates, Yin Yoga & Hatha Yoga. Beth is a strong believer in the transformative powers of yoga and meditation in these technology focused, fast paced times of ours, and is passionate about helping people discover greater ease and freedom of movement in their bodies, as well as the profound peace of mind that comes with regular practice.
Your chef – Sara Nori –
Throughout the retreat you will be nourished with the most beautiful organic whole foods, harnessing the energetics of food to specifically support your time to restore and replenish. All meals will be specially chosen and prepared by Macrobiotic chef Sara Nori, and you will discover pure magic on your plate every day. A strong believer that food and the way we feed ourselves can support a more natural, vital way of living, Sara’s dream is to share this holistic approach in a simple, accessible way for anyone.
One evening meal will be themed around the classic tastes from the South of France, using fresh, local produce from the Occitanie area.
