Spring Transition in the Magical French Alps
About the Event
Type of retreat: Yin Yoga, Sound Healing and Reiki Retreat
Starting: March 4, 2022
‘Lay the foundations and get ready to bloom’
We have prepared a beautiful nurturing retreat where we will work to harmonise your energetic, physical, emotional and mental self with Yin Yoga, Sound Healing, Reiki, breath work, cacao and using aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory whilst nourishing you with life at altitude, delicious meals, a half day vegetarian cooking course and some deep, powerful and transformational sessions. Our intention is to leave you feeling rested, balanced, rejuvenated, inspired and have some tools to take back home with you.
We will be tuning into the Wood element whilst working with the Liver and Gall Bladder organs and meridian pathways in order to improve energy (chi) stagnation and flow. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory, working with the Liver and Gall bladder meridian pathways in advance of the spring season is the most optimal time to start to protect these channels as they are likely to weaken over the spring season. When out of balance in the Liver and gall bladder meridian channels we are likely to experience symptoms such as (but not limited to) stress, headaches, neck/shoulder tension, repressed anger, frustration, irritability, resentment, indecisiveness and physical issues linked to blood, menstruation, digestion, joint issues, muscular strength and vitality. We will use techniques such as Yin Yoga, Acupressure, Qigong, Sound Therapy and Energy work to bring balance to these channels, improve energy (chi) flow and prepare you for the transition to Spring with tools for optimal health.

Natalie & James Bradshaw
The retreat will be run by husband and wife Natalie and James. Rather than talk about their wealth of experience and compassion, here is a testimonial from Andrea:
“From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to Natalie, James, Jessi and John. Our first his and her yoga retreat! But this was not just any yoga retreat. This was a yoga, Reiki and Sound retreat in the French Alps underneath majestic Mont Blanc. An expansive and healing experience. Dynamic yoga, yin yoga, delicious food tailored to the Chinese five elements of our Yin practice. Nepalese singing bowls, chakra balancing, Reiki Drumming, hikes and hot tubs. Helping to integrate the intense energies of July. It’s difficult to put into words the fullness of the experience both personal and shared. Feeling blissed put and thoroughly blessed ”
