BY ATLANTIC SURF LODGE TEAM | 09. – 16.07.2022
A retreat on the magnificent dunes of the Landes.
Ocean, yoga… and surfing for those who want it!
This yoga retreat allows you to take time for yourself, to clear your mind and to deepen your yoga practice in a beautiful setting! We are accommodated in a human-sized, warm, friendly and international guest house. It is located about 8 minutes from the beach by bike. Delicious vegetarian or vegan meals are served. If you have any allergies or intolerances, just mention it when you book. A buffet breakfast is served every morning after the first yoga class. You can then make yourself a picnic from this buffet for your lunch break at the beach. It is advisable to bring a small lunchbox in your luggage. In the evening, we gather around a rich and tasty meal.
This retreat is organised by Mouna Ferhati, a teacher from Strasbourg. She invites a resident teacher from Vieux-Boucau, who will give 2 workshops: Carmen Urban.
3 hours of yoga per day. The morning Hatha or Vinyasa workshops last 1h45 before brunch, 1h15 of asana practice and 30 min of pranayamas and meditation. They are held by the ocean or in a pine forest, accessible on foot or by bike. A real pleasure to breathe in the fresh air during the practice in beautiful spaces! At the end of the day, before dinner, a 1h15 gentle yoga class is offered in the spacious garden of the house to stretch, breathe and let go. Hatha classes are designed to achieve specific postures, while Vinyasa classes focus on a flowing sequence, seeking fluidity of movement guided by the breath.
In the afternoon you can take surfing lessons if you wish (optional). The lesson lasts 2 hours and the teachers are directly attached to the Surflodge, so you just have to ask for it when you register. If you know how to surf, you can simply rent the equipment.
