Enjoy the renewed experience of being in the present moment without worry. Live your life and thrive. We will co-create energy, passion, expression, and health all through the practice of yoga and meditation. Dig deep to connect with yourself and others and seek the peace that comes with reflection and release. Join Dakini Jaeger for a week of Vinyasa yoga, rolling hills in the Dordogne Valley, locally sourced food, and the trip of a lifetime. We will land on our mat in Bergerac in the Dordogne Region of Southwestern France where you will find distinctive history, world-class vineyards, and picturesque countryside.

Dakini will incorporate multiple styles of yoga including vinyasa flow and seated meditation. Regardless of your experience, you will discover a great capacity for flexibility, relaxation, and strength. 

Sample Itinerary:

This retreat includes 2 yoga classes per day. The first class is a rise and shine practice before breakfast. After breakfast, you will have tons of time to hang out by the pool, read, explore the area, or go on group excursions. We will have our second yoga class at the end of the day before dinner. Finally, at dinner, we will reconnect, play music, sing, and enjoy new friends.

  • 3 meals per day starting with dinner on the first night and ending with breakfast on the last day

Accommodations

This retreat center is a charming 17th-century country estate in Southwest France. It’s meticulously maintained residence and park are the essence of stillness and seclusion. The grounds include a heated swimming pool, hard-surface tennis court and 100 acres of protected woodlands.

Castles, medieval villages and historical sites dot the surrounding countryside. The region also offers many outdoor activities, world-famous vineyards, restaurants, and music. The weather could not be more ideal: from the end of April until the end of October the area averages less than five days of rain per month. Temperatures range from 18-29 degrees Celsius.

Dakini Jaeger

Dakini grew up in a ballet studio where the concept of taking care of one’s body was non-existent. It was a daily practice of pushing oneself beyond one’s limits where she learned that pain was a reward for being dedicated to the craft.  Dakini, now the owner of CorePower Yoga in Denver, CO has been teaching many different styles of yoga since 2002 and has learned how to support the body again through alternative healing therapies. You will be enchanted by both the ease in which she guides you in your practice but also the deep individual attention you will receive as you advance your understanding of self and yoga.  Dakini’s style mixes powerful yoga stamina with contemplative dharma themes. 

A French lifestyle is about simple living and enjoying the best moments in life. France has it all. Dordogne offers everything that travellers head to France for: beautiful chateaux, lush gardens, ancient castles, a bucolic landscape of vineyards, forests, and rivers. Experience the rich culture, classic art, sophisticated fashion, detailed architecture, and culinary flavors that France has to offer on retreat.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National

We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
