THE FARM

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

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.

THE PRACTICE

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.

THE BRUNCH

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.

THE AFTERNOON

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.
