Gift yourself time to retreat

10-16 June 2025

The French Retreat, Bordeaux

Join us on our next Go with the Flow ladies-only yoga & relaxation wellbeing retreat – being held in a beautiful French manor house in Bordeaux, France. A former Cognac making estate – the house and huge converted barn provides comfortable accommodation, an indoor and outdoor yoga studio and private gardens and pool.

The Retreat will be run by me and Vicki Baumann from YogawithvickiB. We have been running these successful sell-out retreats since 2018 – so you will be in safe hands!

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy for women to prioritise the needs of others over their own. Juggling work, family and personal responsibilities can leave little time for self-care and space.

So we invite you to provide yourself with time to properly relax. Take a pause, unwind and reconnect with yourself. We see this as not just a luxury – but a necessity for your overall wellbeing. Our nurturing, nourishing retreat in this beautiful region of Bordeaux, France is a perfect calm location surrounded by nature in which you can switch off.

Kick back. Rest. Read. Chat. Laugh with new friends. Swim or doze in the sun. Enjoy delicious chef prepared food and if you wish, enjoy a glass of wine with your meal.

This is time for you to switch off from work, your family and all your daily commitments. And come back feeling relaxed and revitalised.
It’s a place for you to find space, think and reflect.

I would 100 million per cent recommend coming if you can, take that massive step of doing something for yourself. Because a week later I feel like I’m now energised to be able to go back and pick up where I left off and feeling much happier and much lighter.” Lynn S, Retreat May 2022

Why Now?

Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed and every day is ground hog day. Maybe you’re in the “sandwich” generation and looking after everyones needs and have no time for you or had a major change in circumstances.

Maybe a big birthday is looming and you’re wondering what lies ahead?

This special experience can help you reconnect with yourself, get back in the flow of life and feel joy again.

Why This?

You could numb yourself with shopping, food, wine, random therapies or book a holiday.

You could do nothing.

Or you could learn to release yourself from distractions and the things you know aren’t good for you.

By taking the time just to BE.

That’s what this retreat is designed to help you do.

Why Me?

Believe me, I’ve tried it all and I know what kind of things help – and which ones don’t. Therefore, I get it.

In other words, I can relate 100% to the experiences and challenges you’re facing.

Above all, I know how to guide you through them. And I know how giving yourself space to rest and relax in a new environment can work wonders!

“Thank you so much Jo and Vicki for the most thoroughly planned and executed retreat that has been such a wonderful, nourishing experience” KELLY Retreat May 23.
