EASTER YIN YOGA RETREAT IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE with ISAAC cOMBS & grACE TEMPANY
April 18-25 2019
Together with Isaac Combs (DC YinYoga) I am beyond thrilled to be co-hosting a yin yoga retreat next Easter in the beautiful south of France. Domaine de Mournac is a 12th century stone coachhouse, nestled in over 15 acres of woodland and vines, in the glorious Aude department of South West France. The location is in the tranquil stunning French countryside close to the Pyrenees and about a 40-minute drive from Carcassonne.
Isaac and I have put together this week-long retreat with the aim of holding a space for you to completely relax and surrender to the yinside. The retreat will feature morning and evening yoga practices, primarily focused on yin and mindfulness, as well as delicious nourishing locally-sourced dishes, walks in the lavender fields and vineyards. Most importantly, this retreat is an opportunity for you to experience deep rest, to engage in healthy ‘yinquiry’ and quiet time, but equally to settle into holiday mode and soak up the sights, sounds and smells, of this stunning part of world.

Based in Washington, DC, Isaac Combs specializes in yin yoga, tantra, and mindfulness meditation. He practices to build mindfulness and to stay as healthy possibly for as long as possible. Starting in law and finance, Isaac came to yoga reluctantly after some health problems and soon realised he belonged on the mat.
Isaac has completed hundreds of hours of yin yoga training with founders Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers, as well as their senior assistants Joe Barnett and Jo Phee. Ty Powers (Sarah Powers’ husband) currently mentors Isaac.
Isaac teaches at the world-famous YogaWorks in Washington, as well as other renowned studios in the area. He bases his teachings around mindfulness and awareness to help students learn more about themselves as they learn the physical practice of yoga, and he teaches his classes in a light-hearted Arkansas manner, often with a little storytelling along the way.
Grace is excited to be offering her first yin yoga retreat alongside Isaac. Together they bring their extensive knowledge and experience to the table in order to provide you with the best support and guidance both on and off the mat during this week.
They are both really looking forward to sharing this transformative week with you and creating beautiful memories along the way.
