FRANCE - AUTUMN 2022
FINDING YOUR PURPOSE
THE ESSENCE OF OUR EXPERIENCE TOGETHER
3rd - 7th November
Nyons - Provence - France
''When you are in love with life, you receive more love in return. When you exude confidence and joy, you attract others with the same zest for living.
We are going through a pivotal shift, with so many changes and transitions, and the opportunity is for us to utilise this time to ask ourselves, who am I when I am at my best?
How can I live my life in true alignment? ''
This autumn, Charla, Max and Jennifer invite you on a different kind of mind-body immersion in the spectacular vineyards of Provence, France. Over four carefully curated days, you will experience a blend of workshops, movement, breathwork, mindfulness exercises and deeply pleasurable activities designed to create space for your true being to emerge.
With play, curiosity, pleasure and intuitive movement as its foundation, this retreat has been created with a very specific intention in mind: to support you in becoming more confident and clear about who you are and where you are heading. Each workshop will encourage you to tune into you, what you need to thrive and access your own intuitive wisdom.
Practical tools, techniques and teachings will be woven into what is also a deeply nourishing, grounding and restful four-day getaway. However, the retreat doesn’t end after four days; a virtual integration session two weeks later will help to crystallize insights and learnings for genuine long-term benefit. Through this subtle yet powerful guidance, your hosts will steer you towards becoming your own sanctuary and stepping into the comfort – and potential – of who you really are.
Autumn is a powerful season of transition and provides us with a unique opportunity to ground down into ourselves, to root and anchor into our truth, and to receive great pleasure from the harvest of life. It is also a precursor to a season of expectation, excitement and extremes.
This experience is an invitation back to your true self, so you can remember who you are. This magical journey will connect you to yourself, your spirit and your positive, life-force energy. You will leave with a better understanding of your true self, how you want to live and to fall back in love with life.
With play, curiosity, pleasure and intuitive movement as its foundation, this retreat has been created with a particular intention: to support you in becoming more confident and clear about who you are and where you are heading. Each workshop will encourage you to tune into yourself, what you need to thrive and access your intuitive wisdom.
So that we can create a truly holistic experience to nourish, body, mind and soul we have 12 spaces available.
ABOUT YOUR MENTORS
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what makes Max so remarkable as a conduit of yoga. She’s an outlier, a rare one, somebody who doesn’t fit into any clearly defined box or label.
Instead, she delights in the spaces between, guiding you back to your own heart and body wisdom, opening the doors to greater self exploration through a blend of curiosity, play and intuitive movement.
While her knowledge and experience of yoga is undeniable, it is her devotion to living yoga that gets your attention. Without a shred of pretense, Max will conjure a space where you get to embody the journey of yoga – for you.
Living, loving, learning and here to share it all. Charla encourages deep connection and personal change using her own special blend of creative coaching techniques and inner inquiry, all designed to help you access your inner voice.
So often in life we feel adrift from ourselves; a truism that inspires Charla’s work as an experienced coach and leader. A natural empath and enthusiast for all things personal empowerment, Charla will help you to explore your inner landscape and join the dots on what you need to thrive. With greater clarity comes greater opportunities, and a solid, self assured foundation where you get to be authentically you.
Behavioural eating coach and retreat cook Jen adopts the view that life – and how we nourish ourselves along the way – can be a wonderful, expansive adventure. Having undergone a challenging eating disorder in her late teens, Jen transmuted the pain of this chapter into a powerful coaching business that today helps others to cultivate a truly liberated, sane relationship to food and body.
Infusing deliciousness and permission for Vitamin P – PLEASURE! – into every workshop, meal or coaching session, her passion for personal growth and loving the skin you’re in TODAY brings a refreshing perspective on what it means to nurture yourself from the inside out
The perfect place for healthy indulgence. Your abundantly nourishing, nurturing and delicious meals will be prepared with much love, experience and wisdom by the amazing Jenifer. Expect beautiful cuisine prepared with exceptional local and organic produce, prepared with more love and attention than you can possibly imagine. You definitely won’t be going hungry!

Time out to reflect and just be
Set in a rich landscape of olive groves, vineyards, forests and orchards, the privately owned Maison 10 sits on a hill overlooking the ancient market town of Nyons – world famous for its olive oil. Just a short 15-minute walk into the local town, with its microclimate and exceptional air quality, Nyons is known locally as “little Nice”. The largely undiscovered area offers dramatic and spectacular mountainous landscapes and is very popular with yogis, cyclists, walkers and artists
The experience doesn’t end there.
Having experienced lots of retreats ourselves, we know how important aftercare is. So we have carefully curated a virtual integration session after two weeks that will help to crystallize insights and learnings for genuine long-term benefit. Through this subtle yet powerful guidance, your mentors will steer you towards becoming your own sanctuary and stepping into the comfort – and potential – of who you really are.
The stunning location, healthy, nutritious food, thoughtfully planned morning & evening practices, complete support & the magic of Provence will leave you feeling brighter, better, clearer & more positive about every aspect of your life.
