Slow down, breathe and let the beauty of nature speak.
With our morning yoga practice to set the intentions for our day, we set off in the afternoons, walking in silence, treading the various tracks of Montesquieu and meandering through medieval villages along the way.
As we quieten our minds the wildlife and all natural elements reveal something new within, reconnecting to simple pleasures.

Tamsin teaches traditional yoga based on a combination of styles; Sivananda Yoga, a series of postures with variations that are specifically designed to work on all physical and psychic centres of the body, provide complete flexion of the spine and balance the endocrine, nervous and parasympathetic systems – And Yin Yoga, that works to restore fascia (connective tissue) through holding postures for longer and has a deeply meditative affect to calm the mind. Her class begins with the practice of pranayama and meditation leading into a gentle flowing asana practice, resulting in feeling restored and relaxed.
The practice of yoga opens, clarifies, removes energy blocks and helps one to connect to the essence of their true nature – happiness. With long term commitment to the practice you can appreciate the ability to control the mind and transform ones life beyond the mat, beyond reactive emotions to a more gentle, peaceful approach to all that you do, with positive intentions that help guide you.
She has practiced varying styles of yoga and in 2012 took her 200 hours teaching course with Sivananda in the Himalayas, completing her 500 hour certificate in Southern India.

“I spent a relaxing weekend at the Little French Retreat and was totally charmed by the house, garden and surrounding countryside. The yoga and pranayama challenged me to try new things and reinvigorate my yoga practice. I enjoyed the peaceful walks through the rolling countryside, surrounded by vineyards. Tamsin is a thoughtful and welcoming host, and I felt thoroughly looked after. The delicious home-cooked food was a treat. Thank you Tamsin for a wonderful few days” – Nicky
