Join Merav for a week of movement, stillness, art, culture, and nature.

Join Merav for a week of movement, stillness, art, culture, and nature in Chateau de Bardouly – a charming 17th century country estate in Southwest France ( outside the city of Bergerac which lies between the bigger cities of Bordeaux and Toulouse in the Dordogne region). The residence and park are the essence of stillness and seclusion, making it a perfect place for yoga, hiking, meditation, and deep relaxation! Our yoga classes will take place in the beautiful 800 square foot indoor yoga studio as well as in the outdoor wooden platform. All mats, blankets, blocks, and straps will be provided. We will have two daily classes: early flow in the morning and a more gentle and restorative practice in the evening including breathwork and meditation. Each day will have a different theme and focus. In some of our classes we will explore and practice writing and journaling as an additional tool for cultivating ease, meaning, focus, and relaxation post movement and meditation For more information and registration email
