New Course: French and Yoga (4th – 11th June only)

This new course combines Vinyasa Yoga in the afternoons with a selection of French courses of your choice during the morning.

This type of yoga is perfect for people who want a workout and it is popular for its sporty, fluid, creative rhythm. A gentler form is Vinyasa Krama, which is a methodical placement of a series of events, changes and postures.

Example holiday with pricing: 895€ person including, intensive French course (Monday to Friday 15 hours total), Yoga sessions (Monday to Friday 10 hours total), self-catering accommodation in shared chalet or apartment.
