100hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training Asque, Haute Pyrenees, France

23d of April till 5th of May 2017

We will host our successful Yin Teacher Training in France as an residential intensive.

If you enjoy to completely focus on this module in the remote hills and mountains of France, this is the training for you! We will be on a height of 600 meters isolated in all directions for 25 minutes drive from any shops, surrounded by mountains, and fairytale like forest with creeks and waterfalls. Our hosts are Marie and Umesh, a very loving couple, yogi and ayurvedic masseurs themselves, and they will provide only biological meals with locally grown ingredients, and we will often enjoy Indian meals, as Umesh is from Nepal! Marie will make us raw juices.

The location is 1,5 hr. from Toulouse, and tickets are at the moment still very cheap 39.95 euro each way with Easyjet from Amsterdam! But rising soon, so fast deciders can get themselves still a cheap ticket.

The rooms are shared, doubles or singles and all rooms with sinks, some with shower as well. And there are 3 gites: The middle one with large room overlooking the hills, which will be also our lecture room, with good weather, so we can be outside on the verandah as well in the spring sun, enjoying the view, while practising and learning. There is also a large yoga studio in the main building.The meals will provide ingredients for the meridian or organpairs of that day, so you have an understanding how to balance yourself. This place will nurture you, recharge you deeply and will reconnect you with the elements, such a beautiful experience as we will learn to work with the elements and its meridians, and the effect the yin stretches or yang flows have on our body and being.
