Yoga & Mindfulness
SEPTEMBER 9 - 15, 2019
Time to restore, relax, and reload your energy!
This week retreat is about giving yourself time and space in an caring, supportive, and absolutely stunning setting. It is a chance to offer your body, heart, and mind the opportunity to unwind from their daily stresses. It is so important for yourself and for those in your life to take time out for you. It is a necessary refilling of our vital energies. Yoga and Mindfulness are tools to help us better meet the fullness of life with all of its beauty, chaos, and heartbreak. We learn how to more wholeheartedly enjoy the delights of life and how to meet with compassion its struggles. Retreats like this also offer room for our natural creativity and joy to bubble up and surface more and more spontaneously. Through immersing yourself in the daily yoga and mindfulness meditation classes, delighting in the delicious meals and sitting by the calming river, you will build up more physical, emotional and mental strength and flexibility. You can then return home recharge and full of life.
This retreat is open to everyone of all levels and experience.
On this retreat you will have the chance to:
Energize your body through yin and yang yoga,
Calm and focus your mind through mindfulness meditation,
Recharge your soul through spending time by the river, in the gardens, amongst the bamboo, and around the goldfish pond
Fuel yourself with deliciously good food!
It'll be an entire week for you to take care of yourself and delight in life.

KARMA YOGA ~ Giving of service
Moulin de Chaves is a non profit Association. Everyone who comes here on retreat contributes one hour of their time each day towards the running of the Moulin. This may be anything from washing up, veggie chopping, cleaning, or gardening. This practice is done in silence. We thank you in advance for helping us in this way.
To help the practice sink in deeper and more fully, mornings are in silence until 10.00. The morning quiet adds more spaciousness and inner tranquility to the week.
The Moulin de Chaves operates as a French registered Non Profit Association (loi 1901). In order to maintain this status, all activities are offered as a service to Association members. When you arrive you will be asked to pay an annual subscription of €10 which allows us to offer events at the Moulin for the lowest possible cost. Without membership, we would have to operate as a profit-oriented, tax-paying organization.
