Revive and Rejuvenate 4 Night Yoga Health Retreat 2021 (Dates TBC)
“I just want to say I had such a wonderful time at your retreat. You are an amazing host and teacher and made everyone instantly welcome, especially on arrival as everyone was feeling their way.
I loved the relaxed informal pace of the retreat and the flexibility of changing the schedule to suit the clients.
The food was also sensational.
We learnt so much and it was great that our education was obtained throughout the cooking demonstrations and integrated throughout the meal.
It was also wonderful how everyone got on so well.” September 2019

“I have just come back from a 4-day retreat lead by May which was both relaxing, informative and fun. May knows everything you might want to learn about nutrition and manages to convey it in a relaxed and fun manner along with lots of ideas for simple, time-efficient recipes. She is brilliant at inspiring others to try and eat and cook in a more healthy way. Thank you. ” September 2019

“I loved every minute of May’s retreat. It was so relaxing, I felt really looked after and we ate the most amazing, nutritious food. I enjoyed the daily yoga sessions and my massage session was just what I needed. I can’t wait to go back!”
This retreat is based at Chateau de la Vigne, a holiday property I have owned and run for the past 18 years.
I’ve put together a fantastic schedule, based very closely on previous years’ highly successful retreats with my expert team and I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing this dream break with you all.
We’ll practice yoga twice daily, walk or cycle in the peaceful and tranquil French countryside, cook some fabulous recipes together and enjoy delicious healthy meals. With a relaxed programme of discussions, activities, massage treatments and lots of friendly advice, we will explore, over the 4 days, what it really means to “eat well” and how to go about doing so in our busy lives.
We’ll also get out and about and you’ll have an opportunity to visit the beautiful nearby town of Saumur, the local vineyards and even enjoy a private wine-tasting session with a top sommelier.
You’ll leave at the end of the retreat with plenty of empowering knowledge, tasty recipe ideas, as well as a goodie bag and a clear idea of how to embark on and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
With the weather gorgeous but the summer crowds reduced, June and September are perfect months to visit this beautiful region.
Please note that this retreat is open to all level of yogis, from beginners to long-time enthusiasts. Our expert instructor, Jamie Blowers runs renowned teacher training courses and has years of experience behind him; you’ll know you’re in good hands within seconds!
We have been running our retreats for over 5 years now and they’re getting better and better! The essence is on relaxing and experiencing a new way of eating and living but it is very important that you also leave with a clear idea of how to continue some of the things you have experienced on the retreat – we help you with that!
It’s a beautiful and tranquil setting and a lovely group of like-minded people. I love running them, along with my team who are all experts in their field.
“Thanks May for such a wonderful retreat recently at your special château in the Loire. You thoroughly spoiled us all with delicious, healthy food, useful recipe demonstrations and trips to the local area. I loved the daily walks, yoga sessions and the fabulous treatments. Thank you for all your effort in making sure we all had a great time with such a lovely group of people.”
