After seven years, we still can’t get enough of the beautiful Les Passeroses retreat centre in France, and will be returning for a week of yoga, stunning vegetarian food and sunshine in 2017.  Set in the heart of Charente in South-West France, this peaceful and tranquil location is surrounded by rolling countryside, filled with maize and sunflowers.

jackie-jones-yoga-retreat-les-passeroses-france-outside-area-300x225Within this idyllic setting there will be two or more yoga sessions each day. Drawing from a wealth of experience from over 15 years in private practice as a yoga therapist, Jackie will guide you to work at your own level, while sensitively following your body’s natural cues. The morning class will begin around at 8am. Moving from the silence of meditation into guided breathwork, gentle stretches and finally dynamic flowing sequences, the practice will set you up for the day feeling fully awake, refreshed and glowing with energy!

Jackie is a beautiful, sensitive and inspiring yoga teacher… it has been the most amazing yoga experience imaginable.

After lunch there will be free time to either relax around the pool, read, sleep or borrow a bike to explore the local countryside. Midweek, we will take a trip to see the architecture, cafes and riverside beach of one of the local towns.

Our yoga space will either be outdoors or in the beautiful barn renovation with oak floors and a dramatically tented ceiling, where light pours in from three large windows. Jan, the superb local therapist, can also be booked for reflexology, aromatherapy and hot stone massage (pay direct to Jan).jackie-jones-yoga-retreat-les-passeroses-france-tented-yoga-room-300x207

The late afternoon session will break free of the boundaries of a regular yoga class. Exploring, through different mediums, how we can bring ourselves back to centre to reflect on what is truly meaningful in our lives. This is the time to stretch, relax and realign  with our deepest priorities…

Our hosts are renowned for their wonderful food, preparing dishes that are simple, healthy and delicious. Sourced from local farms, vegetarian and organic where possible, you will be able to give your body a nourishing treat to continue the detoxing initiated by your yoga practice.

Each year the experience gets richer and more satisfying…it lasts.

After supper you can just take time to chill either in the Moroccan inspired lounge room, or stroll around in the gardens. On some evenings there will be the opportunity to enjoy candlelit meditation, music or chanting. You are welcome to join in as much or as little as you like!

    The joy of finding the dance of energy that rises from the earth through the feet. The joy of allowing me to explore all of my potentials inside and out. Exhilarating and glorious. Thanks Jackie.

  2. Polly C

    Many thanks to Jackie for such a special week. She is such a gifted teacher, so clear, supportive and encouraging. I have learnt confidence in my yoga practice and more possibilities for the future. She is gifted at facilitating the group experience, at times moving, fun and exhilarating. This week will remain with me.

    I’m sitting in the sun by the pool at the end of a magical and moving week, in the company of lovely people in beautiful surroundings. As a relative yoga newbie I didn’t know what to expect. I am leaving feeling inspired, full of potential and with an open heart that feels softer round the edges. I am so happy to have found Jackie as my teacher at just the right time in my life and looking forward to continuing this wonderful journey with her…

  5. Brenda B

    After studying yoga for many years, this has been the most amazing yoga experience imaginable. Jackie is a beautiful, sensitive and inspiring teacher, I will definately be joining her again at Passeroses. Thank you so very much Jackie, you have changed my life!

  6. Susan B

    Jackie is a superb teacher, able to encourage the less experienced of us to progress whilst allowing the super bendy to explore their limits.
    Her knowledge of physical practise is matched by her skill in caring for our spiritual well being. Rarely have I found myself in such a nurturing environment. I will be back!

  7. Niki S

    It has been the most wonderful week of yoga expertly led by Jackie, food, recuperation, beautiful views and fun. Jackie is an incredible teacher. I feel very lucky to have been able to experience her teaching. It has reignited my love of yoga and the holiday has left me with a reserve of energy and enthusiasm for my return to the real world!

    June 2015 Les Passeroses Incredible experience, surrounded by lovely countryside, so peaceful and relaxing. From birdsong to croaking frogs, this beautiful place is a tranquil haven. I’ve learned lots, especially as I’m a novice. Jackie is a fantastic teacher, encouraging and supportive and very understanding. Wonderful, sumptuous meals enjoyed in the company of lovely, kind, funny and inspiring fellow guests. It was a privilege meeting and getting to know them all.

    A wonderful week; Jackie is the most inspiring, warm, caring, fun yoga teacher ever; she knows and loves her yoga inside and out and is able to share this love , while teaching the physical and meditative aspects of yoga, I don’t know how to express the calm, happiness and relaxation that my body and mind feel at the end of the yoga retreat……….. it is magic ! thank you Jackie

    I have been to Jackie’s Les Passeroses retreat for the last 4 years. Jackie puts her heart and soul as well as her deep knowledge of yoga into making the week special. She has a particular talent for teaching a class of students of very different levels and somehow giving individual attention to everyone. There is a lot of yoga – after the first day I felt it had been quite hard, after the last day I just felt very relaxed and supple (by my relatively low standards). If you like beautiful countryside, copious amounts of inventive vegetarian food, sunbathing and swimming in the pool, wonderful massages – and plenty of yoga, then try this retreat – you won’t be disappointed!

    First time for me and it was just super. Jackie ist such a lovely person and fantastic teacher. If you want an away from it all break with “some exercise” and great veggie food this is the place to go. Such a lovely group of people, we had fun, but also felt comfortable to spend time on my own.. I thoroughly recommend it,(especially in frog mating season). Was hard to leave but returned home relaxed and inspired.

  12. Terri Rapson

    Each year I have returned to this retreat I have have been inspired and energized by Jackie’s yoga instruction. She is a kind, caring and exceptional teacher who makes the yoga journey a peaceful, meaningful and fun experience. Plus the great food, fantastic company and fabulous setting does help a bit too!!

  13. Barbara P

    Jackie is an inspiring teacher who brings a world of learning and personal experience to her classes. She is one of those people who fills you with enthusiasm for what she knows and does and in whom you have enormous trust, so that you are prepared to open yourself and move forward. And it was her leadership that bound the group together to create the warm, supportive environment.

  14. Dee

    Jackie is a fantastic teacher and the venue was beautiful, cannot wait to do another yoga holiday with Jackie, hopefully will be able to return to Les Passeroses next year.

    No need to add to the positive comments already made by the other reviewers, I endorse them all, Suffice it to say that Jackie Jones yoga retreat at Les Passeroses has become an annual essential for us, It gets better every year and we’ll be back again in 2016.
