This relaxing and rejuvenating escapade offers 2 nights of accommodation in a guest room in the manor (single or shared rooms) and a healthy breakfast.

The practice of yoga is accessible to everyone. Known as the world’s oldest human development system encompassing body, mind and spirit, it is a complete science of life that has its origin in India. Yoga takes you on a path of enjoying life through inner fullness, your true nature, through the discovery of your own being, the reconnection to a divine spark and improving your physical stability. It also acts on more subtle planes of the being, starting with the energetic systems.

You will let your body slide into the postures, “Asanas”, on your breathing.The harmony between breath and movements that we seek in yoga exists naturally since birth. This artistic and physical harmony is defined by a capacity to move freely in a state of total awareness in order to bring together the mind, body, breathing and creative intelligence. The very essence of this future sharing is to find harmony in your body and in your life thanks to yoga; discover the happiness of feeling fully alive. Your conscience guides you here to discover new horizons.

Observe, enjoy the present moment and then continue on the path thereafter.

Healthy Breakfast  

Breakfast is considered an important meal for the body to start the day, which is why it should be treated with care. You should neither fast often in the morning nor eat too rich things, but a fair balance in terms of quantities and products and rigor is recommended for well-being. Thus, the Clos du Bois Brard offers to start your day:

  • Pressed oranges or coffee and not both at the same time because both substances are stimulants.
  • Detox juice
  • Fruits; particularly kiwi and apples but also if the season allows it, fruits from their park such as plums, vine peaches, among others
  • A loaf of sourdough bread, which has been the basis of all local food for millennia
  • Homemade jams (only with coffee without sugar)
  • Flaky muesli (normal muesli contains added sugars)
  • Almond milk
  • Vegetable yogurt
  • No powdered sugars, it is prohibited, but rather agave syrup

Breakfasts will be served at 08:00. Since your yoga / pilates class will start between 10:00 am and 10:30 am, it is recommended that you be on an empty stomach for at least an hour and a half for your session to run smoothly. However, you have the option of having breakfast later if you wish.

Breakfasts that eliminate as much as possible processed products will be offered.
