Cycling & Yoga Retreat in Rural France

About this Event

Join us for an epic adventure in France!

We understand how important it is creating balance in life between work and play, focusing time on our physical and mental health. We also know how important it is to have that balance and well rounded approach to your training programme.Our Yoga Retreats allow you to reset it all, de-stress from the worries of everyday life where the focus is all on you.

The amazing team at Santé Yoga, based in Sussac, France, understand the individual and personal needs of each cyclist, and can adapt their practice to make sure you gain the most from your time there.

So come along on a short break away from the hustle and bustle of UK, for a physical and spiritual recharge in our rural French setting. Here we will combine rural French cycling with daily yoga and meditation over 4 days.

Our retreat is located in a beautiful rural location in Limousin, France. This retreat was created from a family dream to build a safe and energizing space for people to explore the area and themselves.

The abundance of nature and beautiful scenery is a wonderful setting to help you de-stress, become a conscious observer of your mind, and ignite the desire within you in a non-attached way.

Our team is passionate about supporting the development and transformation of people’s lives and has given everything to allow their vision to materialize.

During this retreat, you will be staying at Moulin De Chamont, Sussac France. The team believes in living a healthy life in harmony with nature and your own natural self, and you will see this reflected all around you.

They are in the depths of a valley surrounded by clear rivers, dense forest and expanding life. Santé Yoga is run by Danielle, the main yoga teacher, and Jeanette, who prepares the meals, and makes sure stay is one to remember.

Santé Yoga welcomed many volunteers in 2018 to support the renovations and development of this sacred space. It is filled with, love, laughter, and acceptance. Many guests and volunteers have become friends and keep on coming back to share the love.

Do not worry if you are traveling by yourself because at Santé Yoga is very easy to make friends with other guests and also with the staff, local community and numerous animals.

Santé Yoga is located 100 meters away from the healing forest and sits beside a fresh running stream. The nearest lake is a 20-minute walk, which is safe for swimming. It is the ideal place to relax and have a deep contact with nature and the elements.

Accommodation can be in a private room, shared room for two to three persons, all with private showers and toilet. On-site there is a yoga studio, cafe, snooker table, chill out zone, fire pit, barbecue area, library, and much more.

Jeanette, our wonderful chef and co-founder of Santé Yoga France, is Danielle’s mother. She lives in our home and creates delicious and nutritious meals based around the ancient life science ‘Ayurveda’. This way of life will tune you back into nature internally and externally. All our meals are prepared with love and/or sources locally or from the land.

The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda:

  1. The mind and the body are inextricably connected
  2. Nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind

Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. This process isn’t as complicated as it may sound.

All our food is locally sourced by honest and passionate farmers within a 20km radius.

We create nutritious vegetarian meals and are happy to cater to Vegan options too.

Our daily meals include:

Breakfast: Fruit, overnight oats, fresh bread homemade, jams, and local honey

Lunch: Largest meal of the day as your fire is at its peak! Seasonal meal with dessert

Dinner: Lighter meal to allow for a peaceful night’s sleep

Inhouse Café

Our in-house café offers a selection of complementary loose teas and fresh coffee available to our guests all day. We also offer healthy snacks and treats for an additional charge.

Many of our enquiries will be taken care of by our wonderful project manager Richard.

Santé Yoga is in the heart of the Limousin region of France, in the town called Sussac. Approximately 45km east of Limoges, the capital, which has regular flights from the UK and daily train services from Paris, Lille and Toulouse.

We highly recommend hiring a car to explore the beautiful surroundings. You can pick them up at the airport from Europcar or Enterprise, or even at the supermarket, Super U, in the neighbouring town of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt.

We’re a short 15 minute drive away from the very quaint station of Chateauneuf Bujaleuf and 20 minutes from Eymoutiers. So we would be happy to collect you. Trains leave from Limoges Bénédictins to Bujaleuf, with train times varying on time of day. Details can be found on www.trainline.eu
