Yoga & Songwriting Retreat in the South of France

October 19-21 2018

Everyone has a song! Join me for 3 days for a life-changing yoga and songwriting experience. Morning and evening yoga sessions and workshops (all led in English) are designed to help you free your voice and dig into your creativity to find your muse.

Experience the joy and the power of finding your song and sharing it with others in a supportive space. No matter what your musical ability, from none to some, come and create, learn, harmonize, share, laugh, heal and sing, all weekend long.

We’ll sing! We’ll Breathe! We’ll write!

During free time, relax and enjoy the natural setting of the Retreat Centre. Gardoussel  (‘guardian of the birds’) is a simple, family-run retreat, a magical oasis of calm situated in the beautiful Cévennes mountains of the Gard department (Languedoc region), just 1½ hours by car or train from Nîmes and Montpellier.
