The retreat in Provence with Jennifer was simply wonderful and went far above the top ten reasons to go on the retreat! Everything was just perfect starting from the location and the wonderful fresh food to Jennifer’s amazing yoga classes, hiking tour to the beach and visiting the beautiful region of Provence. It was a week of blissfulness which rejuvenated both my mind and my body. When I need a moment of relaxation, I go back in my mind to the mental image of these holidays: practicing yoga in a sun, looking at the never-ending lavender and olive trees…

The smell, the colours, the food, the atmosphere and the quality of the very personal teachings, I will never forget it! Thank you!

Anne-Marie

I loved the retreat! The location was tranquil and beautiful. We could smell lavender from nearby fields during the daily al fresco yoga sessions. Jennifer teaches a right mix between feasible, challenging and fun yoga poses. Her passion for yoga and her energy are contagious and make every practice a treat. Afternoons were spend relaxing by the pool or exploring Provence. My batteries were completely recharged after one week.
