Pyrenees Ashtanga Yoga Retreat

November 9 - 16, 2024

Experience the beauty of the Pyrenees and deepen your practice.

Join us for 7 nights in the picturesque village of Benque in a beautifully restored farmhouse.  Benque is located in the Valley d’Oueil of the central Pyrenees.  Magnificent mountain views, fresh air, green hills and plenty of space to wander makes this the perfect place for a retreat. 

From the house you can hike into the hills and climb up to beautiful viewpoints.  We will also plan several outings to explore the beauty of this region.  Benque is a 10-minute drive above Bagneres-de-Luchon, which is a unique and historic thermal bath village.   

Outings will include visiting Luchon, going to a thermal bath and multiple hikes.  Our aim is to create a nourishing and restorative experience for you while also giving you a real taste of the Pyrenees.

This is a special region of France with much to offer and we’re excited to share it with you.  Everything is optional and you can also relax at home whenever you want.

Saturday, November 9th is the arrival day and check-in begins at 4pm.   We will have an opening class at 6PM followed by dinner.

If you have any questions please email: yoga@ashtangalanka.com 

We look forward to seeing you in November…!

If you travel by train, the nearest station is in the village of Montrejeau.  From there you can take a bus to Bagneres-de-Luchon and we can pick you up at the main station. 

Depending on flight prices and availability, you might consider arriving or departing a few days before or after the event.    We are familiar with this area and happy to offer suggestions on things to do.
