Get ready for a full day of yoga at Le Manoir Gabard in Chalais. In the morning, choose two forty-five minutes sessions suitable for beginners. After enjoying light fare, choose to meditate in the lovely gardens or even take a dip in the pool instead before surrendering to a restful Nidra session. There’s a knee-free class (for all you sore knees out there!) before we end the day with a centering sound bath. Attend the morning, the afternoon, or the entire day! It’s all by donation for a good cause!

Class space may be limited. Please RSVP your intent to attend any or all sessions, especially lunch, by emailing We will do our best to accommodate everyone and make adjustments as necessary and possible. Therefore, schedule is subject to alteration.
