WEEKEND ESCAPE With Affordable Yoga

 

Escape Paris for a healthy weekend

at an affordable price

(starting from €25 a day!)


After another successful weekend confirming that this is a wonderful way to spend a weekend with a group of beautiful people - I am proud to announce the next Affordable Yoga Weekend Escape!!! The same vibe, formula, and place... and hopefully the same weather as we had last weekend! (!!) For those who couldn't make it to the last one... and for all those that were there.. please come join us in Versailles at the end of July for another natural yoga and fitness experience!

 

Tone up, slim down, strengthen your yoga practice, feel refreshed and rejuvenated

If you want fast, effective fat loss results, boost to your mood and wellbeing, relax and let go and gain knowledge for life on how to live more responsibly towards your body and health, - Come and join me at the fitness camp weekend or a full week retreat (details coming soon) with a yogic twist!

I would like to invite you to experience Affordable Yoga in the tranquility of the natural settings in Versailles. You can explore the vast green spaces and nature trails, practice yoga, and join in any of other fitness classes that will run throughout each day, learn how to put together healthy and nutritionally balanced meals, enjoy the weekend or a day in the friendly company of fellow group members, or use this time to get away from it all and focus deeper within yourself in harmony with the nature.

 

The uniqueness of this camp is that you get to decide on the fitness or wellbeing emphasis and the intensity of your programme:  - pure yoga relaxation and de-stress; or an intense fat loss bootcamp, exploration of the surroundings or a combination of all! Take part in exercise classes once, twice or even 4 times a day, eat 3 healthy meals and 2 energy snacks and feel your body and mind fill up with the energy of the nature.

For those wishing to experience total immersion and escape from Paris for the whole weekend, there will be an option to stay for 2 nights in a luxury eco camp Huttopia. You can find more information about them here.

Main site describing their ethics and philosophy:

And specifically what their Versailles site has on offer:

Food

Food at cost from local markets we will visit together to buy the supplies for the weekend.

If you are interested, please RSVP 'Yes' to this invite.

To secure your place, you can pay the fee for the yoga and fitness activities to me in cash, cheque or by bank transfer. (€25.00 per day)

Then please let me know if you would like to come for a day visit or stay overnight

If you would like to stay for the whole weekend - please let me know your accommodation choice and whether you would like to share or book individually (say if you are bringing enough friends/family to share with).

As soon as we have enough people interested in sharing similar types of accommodations I will let you know how to go ahead and book as a group.

You can book and pay for your accommodation directly with Huttopia - if you are all paying separately, - please give the Group Name 'Affordable Yoga', which also serves as a special group discount code (no booking fee)

    Hi Anna
    Sorry I got big assignment to finish this weekend. I am afraid I can not make it this Saturday. Is it too late to cancel?

    July 25, 2013

    • Anna

      Hi Maggie, thanks for letting me know. Of course we will be missing you, but I understand that you need to work. I am sure you'd rather be doing yoga and chilling by the pool.. so no worries. Hopefully see you on the next weekend in September!! :) Have a good weekend!

  • Sophie

    Hi Anna !

    Like Jules was interested in coming on Saturday evening but read that there is no accommodation left and I don't have a tent ! Oh, dear ! Can I still come on Sunday morning for the whole day and at what time shall I arrive ? Thanks.

    1 · July 23, 2013

    • Anna

      Hi Sophie, of course you are very welcome to come on Sunday morning, - we will probably start at 10am so you can get there for 9.45ish if you like. Or if you still want to come on Saturday, I have recently purchased some tents for communal use that can be rented for €5 per person per night or €10 for the whole tent if you prefer to be on your own. :) Let me know what you prefer.

      July 24, 2013

  • Laura

    Hi Anna, I'm interested in coming Saturday an Sunday with one overnight, ho pe this is possible. I'm glad to share accommodation in either a cabin or Canadian tent or cahutte. Let me know if there's someone interested in sharing too.

    Laura

      Hello.. Just an update the Cahutte is not available for Saturday night (booked up!) so the people in that group will camp on Saturday night. Would you like to camp instead as well? It is possible to share the same pitch (and hence the cost) for up to 3 tents and you can rent a tent if you dont have your own. If you like the idea of camping it will be will be much cheaper as well and nice in this weather. :) let me know what you think!

      July 23, 2013

    • Laura

      Hi Anna, no problem with camping saturday night as long as i cans share the pitch and cost with 2 other people. I don't have a tent, so will need to rent one. Let me know if the sharing and renting is possible.
