AUTUMN ALIGNMENT YOGA RETREAT : Nourish and Release

at the Ermitage de Pourville, Yoga Normandie, France

We come from Nature and as such are still subject to the changes that occur around us. In fact, when we look closely, we find that those changes also occur on a subtle level within us, and when we align ourselves with this inner and outer wisdom, the wisdom of Nature, we find greater balance, harmony and health in our lives. Autumn is the season where we begin to transition into the deep introspective and restful season of winter. In Autumn we prepare for this ‘going inwards’ through nourishing and grounding ourselves, and letting go.

Sara and Jean Philippe have a combined teaching experience of over 40 years, with complementary practices in Kundalini, Sivananda, Sampoorna, Ashtanga, Hatha yoga, as well as many yogic and buddhist meditation traditions. Teaching together, they offer retreat students an opportunity to deepen both their practice of traditional yogic disciplines, and their understanding and knowledge of these ancient wisdom-based traditions. Their focus is always on meeting the student where they are, to offer an experience that is enriching, nourishing and replenishing - noone should ever leave a retreat feeling depleted. 

Full details on this retreat to come soon, but hold the dates beach-retreat experience on the majestic coast of Normandy, France!


About Your Teachers

Sara Campbell has been guiding people to discover their depths since long before becoming a world champion freediver. Her journey of self-healing from severe stress-related illness led her to become a Kundalini yoga teacher and ultimately brought her to a new life in the ocean. Here she truly began exploring the concepts of life, happiness, success and failure, and how to reach our human potential, both in and out of the water, on and off the mat. Sara looks to nature for the wisdom that it can impart, and how we can learn to live more in balance with ourselves and our surroundings. 

Sara teaches yoga, meditation and freediving internationally, and also provides spiritual coaching to help people explore beyond their perceived limits. She has been involved in several TV documentaries on freediving and human potential, is the founder of Discover Your Depths, and has created her own online training programme, Yoga for Freediving.

Jean Philippe has been teaching gentle integrative and holistic yoga with a focus on therapeutic and restorative application (based on certifications in Sivananda, Sampoorna, Iyengar, Hatha and Vinyasa Flow) and meditation practice (Samatha, Vipassna, Dzogchen and Mahamudra) for over 20 years. Through his extensive experience he works intuitively with each student to guide them from where they are in the current moment, to a deeper awareness of the effects of conscious breath, integrated with the body and mind for an experience of deep relaxation, peace and connection.
