Joie de Vivre: Yoga Retreat in Southwest France

Join Savonn and Kari in the Dordogne region of France, immersing yourself in culture, adventure, food and wine.  Twice-daily yoga, taught at Chateau de Bardouly, provides the base for relaxation, giving you the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate while experiencing this stunning chateau-studded countryside that is rich in history and picturesque villages.




Savonn’s approach to teaching is to provide skillful and detailed instruction, non-dogmatic and grounded inspiration, along with mindful intention and awareness.   She weaves in many different styles and approaches to her creative sequencing and theme based classes.

Savonn holds a deep knowledge of intricate movements of the body and is brilliant at offering up the most creative of asana variations and flows.  Her ability to clearly articulate and break down the movements and seamlessly weave in the unexpected keeps classes challenging, inspiring and fun.  She recognizes the importance of an integrated approach to health and well-being.  She believes that yoga and other meditative and expressive arts are a great complement to athletic, professional and creative pursuits.


Kari teaches dynamic, flowing sequences that bring attention to the breath, encourages curiosity, and emphasizes proper alignment all with an openness and sense of humour.  Her ability to assess the class and adjust sequencing to meet the students exactly where they are provides an inclusive space for all to practice, encouraging playfulness and lightheartedness.  A constant student, Kari is always looking for ways to improve her Vinyasa Flow and Restorative classes, whether it is working with anatomy, changing language, developing creative sequencing or incorporating her passion for music into the yoga space.
