Program

Yoga is a lifestyle that expands much further than the poses. It is the union with all. Space gives you a chance to stop, observe and absorb.

Santé Yoga doesn’t pretend to be superhuman, but they do live their life as aware as their mind and body will allow that day. They open their hearts to everyone, everything and open their home to people who are inspired by this movement to free themselves from suffering.

You will base yourself in Santé's rural homestay in Sussac and combine rural French cycling with daily yoga and meditation over four days.

You will have an initial consultation with Santé's owner and instructor Danielle, where she will assess your current ability and personalize your program depending on your requirements.

You will have access to two group yoga sessions daily. The morning session will help prepare you for the days cycling ahead, and the evening session to unwind and loosen off after the day on the bike.

Each day there is a guided cycle exploring the beautiful local countryside, with varying distances and speeds on offer (Distance: 50 - 100 kilometers daily).

You will be treated to three daily farm-to-plate meals, with all produce locally sourced, and stay in a beautiful 19th Century French homestay.

Location

Santé Yoga is in the heart of the Limousin region of France, in the town called Sussac. Approximately 45 kilometers east of Limoges, the capital, which has regular flights from the UK and daily train services from Paris, Lille, and Toulouse.

The Association is a micro-farm situated next to the river La Combade. They have sheep, dogs, cats, and hens on site who roam freely on the land. They also grow a large array of fresh vegetables, which they use in all the meals. This is all maintained with warmth, love, and dedication for the animals and the land they serve. All of this takes place in a deeply rural area surrounded by breath-taking views, rolling hills, smooth roads and beautiful lakes (known as the land of a thousand lakes).

It's highly recommended hiring a car to explore the beautiful surroundings. You can pick them up at the airport from Europcar or Enterprise, or even at the supermarket, Super U, in the neighboring town of Châteauneuf-la-Forêt.

Santé Yoga holds space in the depths of the valley for you to design a retreat that serves you. In 2018, they welcomed many volunteers to support the renovations and development of this sacred space. It is filled with love, laughter, and acceptance. Many guests and volunteers have become friends who keep on coming back to share the love.

Sussac is also home to a local tourist resort offering lake, beach, play area and other amenities. Geographically, the village is located between the capital towns of Limoges and Tulle, approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the A20 autoroute.

Nearby, you can visit the ruined chapel on Mont Gargan, which has an impressive command of the region, and the nearest town is Eymoutiers. This is home to a large supermarket and a bustling Saturday market that sells fresh vegetables, cakes, and other wares. There is also a lovely assortment of shops, cafes, and restaurants where guests can relax and unwind.
