Immersion Retreat in Hossegor, France 

29 August to 3 September 2019 

Our stories of the past, even the most painful ones, become our stories of today and of tomorrow. We unconsciously reenact our past over and over again causing frustration, pain and suffering. In the Yogic and Buddhist traditions, this is called a Samskara, or when fully engrained within us, a Vasana. Our stories that we tell ourselves become our obstacles preventing us from living new experiences and the life we truly want to live.

These 5 days of immersion will delve into your stories. You will learn how to uncover their gift of gold and how to transform them into wisdom for growth and inherent joy.
Your days will be filled with
Yoga practices supporting the theme. You will refine your ability to discern, let go of what is holding you back and understand your fears. Through the practice of meditation, pranayama and different kriyas as well as yoga nidra you will recentre and ground into the best version of you.
There will be moments of introspection and journaling which will support your journey as well as moments to try new experiences like surfing and standup paddling.

We will be staying in a beautifully renovated farm with a taste of Balinese Style. On site, you will have full access to the pool, jacuzzi, spa, hammam, tennis courts and endless paths for walking. The meals are vegetarian and home cooked with love and care and the rooms are tastefully decorated so that you will feel completely at home.

The beach and the boho chic town of Hossegor, which hosts hip stores and cafés, are just 10 minutes away.

This immersion retreat is limited to 12 students. There are 2 private rooms available for an extra fee of 50euros and the other rooms are shared.

There are flights directly into Biarritz or into Bordeaux. We suggest renting and sharing the cost of a car for your comfort.

The retreat, all instruction and guidance will be from the evening of the 29th until mid day lunch on the 3rd of September. For those of you that wish to stay on for 2 nights (flight availability with Swiss), are more than welcome. This will give you more time to relax by the pool, take a massage, walk along the beach, surf or shop. The Farm has graciously offered us 2 nights free of charge with just the cleaning and meals to pay on top of the total retreat price. This is optional.

Audine is a traditional farm transformed over the years by a passionate surfer, which has become a perfect place for anyone searching for serenity and the spirit of sharing a peaceful haven for practicing yoga. With 6 hectare of nature there is space to be alone, find that quiet moment to ressource, read and savour the endless fields of nature that surround the farm. Onsite there is a large swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a spa with a sauna and hamman, as well as a tennis court available for your pleasure.


The rooms are beautifully decorated with a pure yet exotic feel that enhances that feeling of being far away from it all. The rooms are double occupancy with the option for a private room upon request and according to the availability. Crisp white linens and towels adorn your room.


Your day will began with a warm herbal tea, fresh fruit and nuts before entering into the fully equipped yoga shala which will become our sacred space for our daily practice. Each yoga class will guide you on an inner journey through breath and movement, meditation and conscious awareness. Each practice is caters to all levels and encourages you to develop your own inner intuitive sense to know what feels right for you. We will use precious essential oils to enhance our practice according to the effects we wish to achieve. Each class will finish with a long guided relaxation, meditation and pranayama as well as moments to journal your experience.

Our last morning class will include our closing circle, culminating the treasures of these five days together and sharing our gifts with each other.

There will be 2-3 afternoon practices incorporating yin or restorative, each followed by Yoga Nidra.


As you come out of meditation, you will be greeted with an elaborate healthy brunch which will captivate your senses and fill your being with sweetness. Each meal is consciously created with delicious healthy vegetarian choices and served on the outside terrace by the pool.
The brunch will be served buffet style hosting whole grains and cereals, with gluten free choices, homemade jams, ewe yoghurt, soy yoghurt, sheep’s cheese, eggs, fresh fruit juice, and hearty salads.


Respecting the rhythm of the body and the mind, every other afternoon will be about doing little, noting more than self care- lounging around the pool, relaxing in the garden with a good book, taking long walks in the nearby forest, pampering yourself with a massage or a jacuzzi, sauna or hamman. Every other day the ocean will call us to meet her, for either a two hour surf lesson with a qualified teacher- (don’t worry! We are all beginners!), time to relax and play in the waves, and a 2 hour SUP and paddle yoga class on the nearby lake. We will venture into town to explore Hossegor and shop in the hippie chic boutiques and finish with a special seafood dinner by the water.


There are direct flights with Swiss, EasyJet to Biarritz which is the closet airport, The farm is situated about 20-30 minutes from the airport. Ideally, we suggest that groups of 4 rent a small car for the duration of your stay.
