Joie de Vivre!
May 23 – 30, 2015
Joie de Vivre is a French expression for the delight in being alive, a carefree enjoyment of life, an exultation of spirit.
A beautifully restored 17th Century chateau, brimming with the charm and nobility of its four hundred years of existence, was the venue for seven days of inspiring yoga, serenity, adventure, creativity in the French countryside near Bordeaux.
During their free time, the group enjoyed farm-to-table meals, a heated swimming pool, tennis courts, the local markets and cafes, the poetic gardens and ancient oaks surrounding a private lake, hiking and cycling. The area boasts many great markets, historic castles and gardens, the prehistoric caves of Lascaux, canoeing down the Dordogne River and world class wineries.

Palm Springs Yoga Retreat
March 31 – April 2, 2017
The Palm Springs Yoga Retreat with Stella Valente was a weekend of yoga, meditation, sun and fun.
We parked our cars for the weekend; guests were able to walk everywhere or explore by bicycle with a complimentary beach cruiser.
The retreat was held at a mid century apartment-hotel, The Twist, where every unit has a full kitchen, balcony with a view of the mountains, access to the pool, spa and our very own yoga pagoda. Downstairs is an organic coffee shop with vegan delectables and the famous Bootlegger Tiki.
This was an unforgettable weekend with a group of like-minded individuals — inspired, healthy and enjoying the good life.
