Yoga and meditation class

There will be two yoga classes a day. The daily practice will involve energizing, nourishing and restorative yoga and we will even have a go at partner yoga. Yoga takes place in an amazing new geodesic dome measuring 11 meters in diameter, which is situated behind the chlorine-free swimming pool. It has a wonderful view over the expansive countryside of the Charente-Maritime. There will be optional silent walks and guided Meditation lessons.

Visioning and intention workshops

You will discover you already have an amazing life beneath your nose and you will learn to live more fully. You will spend time on the visualization, manifesting of dreams, and then aligning with those intentions.

Free time

There will time for chilling, walking, swimming and explore the beautiful surroundings of the countryside around Les Logis Des Quatre Puits House. On Wednesday, there will be a trip into the local town for a meal.

Based near Bordeaux, France and set in 74 acres of unspoiled woodland, open fields and bordered by a small river, parts of the Logis de Quatre Puits - the 'Place of the Four Wells' - dates back to the 15th century, but there has been a dwelling on the site for more than 1,200 years. For the next chapter in its history - and in collaboration with the owners of Les Passeroses Retreat Centre - Les Quatre Puits will be opening it doors to yoga groups this year.

Testimonials

  • Review by Rowan Miller from UK

    "I now regularly go to Debbie's class in Easton Community Centre on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Debbie is the best yoga teacher I have ever come across. She has a vast knowledge of the practice of hatha yoga and how bodies work.nIt is the best combination. Debbie is so in tune with how our bodies work that she is able to keep you safe and teach you to stretch yourself. I also love the spiritual element that Debbie brings. I feel completely different after the class. Debbie allows me to escape from my fast and sometimes stressful life. She understands how important it is to be present and grounded and her yoga classes are one of the best resources I have found for a happier, healthier mind, body and soul."

  • Review by Yazmiina Bella from UK

    "I participated in a few yoga classes during my stay at the Sandele Eco-retreat in The Gambia. First time doing yoga and it was an amazing experience and feeling. In addition to this, it has helped within the first session reveal a chronic leg and knee pain I have had for more than 3 years. I believe the stretches helped reveals my muscle tension as I suffer from piriformis syndrome and a tight IT band. Definitely would recommend and a big thank you to Debbie for this!"

  • Review by Maika from Bristol, UK

    "Debbie, you are an inspiring and motivational teacher. Since I've met her not only have I increased my yoga practice but I have also started exploring aspects that were previously not emphasised in my yoga practice. In your sessions the physical and spiritual practices are always linked, I really enjoy your classes. You're creative, not two sessions are the same. You're good at picking up everybody's mood to design a session that fits the general mood of the class. Anyway your presence and your voice is lovely. I love you and your yoga classes. I've learned a lot and hope to keep learning. Love you Debbie Omkari"

  • Review by Dawn from Bristol, UK

    "I love your classes Debbie! I always feel more grounded, relaxed and sane afterwards and you seem to instinctively know just the right amount of physical challenge we need to balance the emotional and physical relaxation and release. Loved the chimes this week too. Thanks so much, for my favourite part of the week."

  • Review by Tiane from Bristol, UK

    "I use yoga to manage chronic pain, and will try to get to as many classes of Debbie's I can in the week. Her classes are consistently helpful, challenging and relaxing on every level and her music is diverse and a pleasure to listen too, her chants close each lesson beautifully too. In fact if one could get Debbie's class on prescription, the NHS would save a packet on meds not used. I would encourage anyone to try one of theses classes. Thanks every time Debbie."
