23-29 juillet, 2015 Retraite : LuxYoga Vinyasa in Côte d’Azur

Respect - essential to any solid relationship and the foundation for Isaac and Benjamin’s fifth retreat together at the villa. Yes, mutual respect between these two notorious teachers but more so, respect for the dedication it takes for modern people like you to practice yoga in a mindful way and the deep respect that Isaac and Benjamin share for the traditions of yoga. As creative, broad and unique as the practices during this special retreat will feel, they are rooted in a mutual dedication to the totality of yoga.  Both of these guys are equal parts reverence for the past, for structure and intelligent design, and in their own ways, trailblazers who believe in doing things with joy in a way that simply works. Their classes are fluid journeys to new horizons that while seamless and creative are always rooted in the intelligent container of the fundamental principles of yoga.  This retreat is a symbiotic combination of styles with consistent physical and spiritual themes that ensure a frame of reference for your work. By experiencing excitingly different classes with shared fundamental resonance, you will leave the retreat well on your way to achieving one of the ultimate goals of practice; the capacity to self-calibrate your practice, and thus your body-mind. It is our goal to offer you a practice that will serve your practice in any practice you choose for years following this retreat. We are also counting on some good laughs, great food, fine wine and a dip in the pool after every cleansing class. Isaac and Benjamin's retreats have become known for the special way they challenge incredibly physically gifted yogis while supporting the healing work of newer students and those with injuries. With deep respect for the best in each other, let's have a great week together.

13-19 juillet, 2015 Retraite : LuxYoga Forrest + Vinyasa Yoga in Côte d’Azur

Practice gratitude, receive grace. When you acknowledge what's good, when you say thanks, you give energy back to the source. It's giving and getting all at once without all the grasping and straining.  The circle continues and support is everywhere. Over time, the practice of gratitude turns effort into grace. Learn to bring the very feeling of of living well into your cell tissues to manifest the essence of positivity in all facets of your life. This is not just some new-agey speech. You will hone the very skill of using feelings to develop intelligence so as to create opportunities and space in both practice and life. More than just enjoying a sumptuous week in the South of France with amazing cuisine and personalized luxury, this retreat is about planting the seeds of a beautiful life, ripping out the weeds at their roots, and growing from the good essence of your Spirit. Grace, above all, is connection to Spirit, to the best and most creative and strongest and softest part of you. You will explore how the acts of asana and gratitude may create a state of grace, and how that state of grace is truly a reservoir into which you can dip your cup long after your retreat has ended. 

This retreat represents the second annual collaboration between Erica Mather, one of a select few Forrest Yoga Guardians worldwide, and Benjamin Sears, founder of LUXYOGA We came together to do this because we both love the cerebral aspects of practice and can talk for hours about theory yet stand in awe of the powers of feeling and Spirit. Join us for a special blend of therapeutically crafted Vinyasa classes, deeply healing Forrest Yoga, Pranayama, and intention setting practices. Expect to be challenged in a safe space by teachers who care more about you than the poses but also love to get sweaty and deep. Kindred Spirits, unite in the South of France!

3-9 juillet, 2015 : LuxYoga Bikram in Côte d’Azur

Bikram Method and your abs, hips and heart.

A B&T production. Tricia Donegan and Benjamin Sears; friendships age well and that's what this retreat is all about: connection, a good relationship with yourself through thick and thin.

A private villa in the South of France with incredible, nourishing cuisine and other soulful people is a pretty good setting for that type of work. Of course yoga and getting deep into the practice but what this somewhat unlikely pair has in common is a desire to live real life well and to give you the space to be your best. All the Bikram yoga you could dream of plus the chance to develop an ongoing dialogue of growth with your own body and practice via painstakingly curated and accessible training techniques. Benjamin Sears is renowned for using simple augmentative exercises to clarify the forms and engagements inherent in the Bikram method of Hatha Yoga. Tricia gets the best of you out through every drop of sweat even when you didn't think you could sweat anymore.  

On this retreat, you will experience the comprehensive and proven LUXYOGA Bikram Yoga paradigm with classes, clinics and photo analysis plus additional work on core strength and hip and heart opening that will grow your practice in a sustainable way while guiding you to a profound capacity to self-diagnose next steps.  Straightforward and simple journaling exercises will make the work you do on the mat into a feeling that transcends the challenges and joys of life. We are bringing the homey, big-love vibe of Bikram Yoga Lower East side to the most open and well-curated yoga retreat space in the world. Come with us to breed compassion and live your lux life.
