Restore and Revitalise Retreat at Puyssentut, France 2016


Puyssentut is a retreat in SW France for people with, or recovering from, cancer. It is a haven where you can relax and begin to let go of the stress of dealing with cancer and take time to reconnect to yourself and the simple pleasures of life, in a caring and nurturing environment.

I was delighted to be invited to work with the therapeutic team for their retreat in May 2016, offering a range of massage therapies and delivering yoga nidra meditation. It was wonderful to be working alongside other therapists, teachers and macrobiotic chiefs. There were a range of daily yoga and meditation classes for guests to experience, informal talks and delicious, nutritious and detoxing meals. All this in the setting of a beautiful chateau nestled in the glorious rolling Gascon countryside.

The week was full of laughter, tears, peace and sunshine. At the end of the retreat guests were feeling rested, uplifted, inspired and I was humbled to be part of their journey. If you are yours are coping with a cancer diagnosis, I can highly recommend a visit to this stunning chateau and hope these few photographs demonstrate a flavour of the delights in store for you.
