Philosophy...

Our yoga retreats take place in the heart of the medieval village of Saint Jeannet, only half an hour away from Nice City Center and overlooking the famous French Riviera. Our breath-taking view of the Mediterranian sea spans from the Italian border to Saint Tropez. To the North and East lie the majestic French Alps - you can ski an hour and a half’s drive away from here! - and to the west, their rolling foothills and low-lying mountain ranges trickling into the Mediterranean sea, setting the scene for spectacular and all so varied sunsets year round.

Through daily yoga and meditation practise, as well as outdoor and cultural activities, you will be able to reconnect with your body and soul. Every session is an opportunity to practise Mindfulness: to come back to yourself, to listen deeply to what is, here and now, in order to become more present... and discover, more and more, who you truly are and what you really want in life.

When physical tensions are sensed and welcomed as they are, real relaxation can occur: physical relaxation, but also psychological rest. This opens a space where emotions and unconscious fears can be revealed and released.

To fully benefit from this retreat, you are invited to be open to trying a new approach, a new practice, and to delve deeper into your own being. A better understanding of yourself, and of the world, will follow…

Level required...

This is the reason why there is no pre-requisit to joining our retreats. Whether you have been practicing for many years or just discovering the practice, it doesn’t matter.

Practical aspects...

This yoga holiday runs every week, from April till November.

We have chosen to have a primary language of either English or French on different weeks. We find this makes socialising easier for the guests. But all members of the FrogS’House team are bilingual and very happy to translate for you if you are not able to join us on a week where the language of your choice is the primary language. We also speak a number of other languages amongst us, please just ask.

April, May, June, October and November: retreats of 7days/6nights are organised with English as the primary language in the first and second weeks of every month, and French in the third week of the month. The fourth week of the month divided in 2 retreats of 4 days/3nights, with English as the primary language from Sunday to Wednesday, and French from Wednesday to Saturday.

July, August and September: retreats of 7days/6nights are organised with English as the primary language in the first and the second week of each month, and French in the third and the fourth week of each month.

To offer our guests enough time to find the perfect balance between the yoga sessions, activities in nature, moments of sharing and socialising with the teachers and with other guests, and time on their own, we have created a program that lasts a whole week. This is why we encourage you to arrive on Sunday and start the retreat from the beginning, to get the maximum benefit from it and to feel its natural progression…

However, if your itinerary does not fit with this schedule (arriving earlier or later) or you cannot stay until the end of the retreat, please let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Note: Excursions on arrival and departure days are not included in the prices given. However, you are very welcome to join in, if your timing allows it: arrival before 10am, or departure after 5pm. Cost will be extra, please consult us.
