A yoga retreat is a special time to take care of your body and mind.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced yogi, this experience is accessible to all levels and will cut you off from your daily life for several days to reconnect with yourself and take a break.
Our retreats take place in relaxing settings to fully dedicate yourself to the practice of yoga. You will deepen your postural practice and explore breathing and meditation techniques in moments of pure relaxation.
“Le Yoga est une lumière qui, une fois allumée ne s’éteint jamais.
Plus on pratique, plus la flamme est vive.”
Our upcoming Retreats
The Alps are a unique setting where every space of nature offers your body and mind the serenity and renewal you need.
Come and discover this vast mountainous territory, made up of forests, glaciers, summits with eternal snow, wild fauna still preserved, typical villages, inexhaustible sources of inspiration.
We offer stays in Chamonix, at the foot of the mythical Mont Blanc massif, but also in the bucolic village of Megève or near the peaceful Lake Annecy, in a former convent run by Indian sisters.
Our stays in the Alps are the perfect opportunity to combine yoga and hiking in the mountains.
The power of the elements in Brittany is ideal for stimulating the body and mind.
We have selected a little corner of paradise in Finistère to host our yoga practices by the sea, bathed in a pure and wild atmosphere.
This former school at the Pointe du Raz, now transformed into a gîte, is the ideal place to recharge your batteries, the starting point for beautiful walks along the coastal paths or a surfing session at the Baie des Trépassés.
We are Flore & Jenn, two passionate people who created in 2019, Origyne-s our alternative and caring event agency.
Yoga has been an integral part of our lives for many years, so it was only natural that Origyne-s Yoga was created with the aim of organising the yoga retreats that we would like to share with you, in the Alps, in Brittany and soon in more distant destinations.
All of the yoga teachers we work with are certified and have many years of experience. They will transmit their passion for yoga through different postural practices but also through breathing and meditation techniques accompanied by mantra chants.
“If yoga is the weaving of a lifetime, the preparation of courses and retreats requires a framework, deft little hands, a creative mindset and a good dose of know-how.
Flore and Jenn know how to pool their respective skills to find a suitable setting for each stay, adapted prices and professional partners while listening to my wishes. They create tailor-made stays, take care of the reservations with the accommodation of the different participants as well as with the participants.
So for a few days, accompanied by these two nuggets, Yoga spreads out like a multicoloured canvas & reveals its beauty and its forms, and as Pierre Feuga says “it is so simple and it is so beautiful Yoga”.
“I am a big fan of the retreats organised by Origyne-s yoga.
I am a beginner in yoga but the teachers always know how to adapt to the level of each person while guaranteeing a good flow in the practices and a benevolent cohesion between the participants.
I come back from each retreat feeling calm and super relaxed.
I can’t wait to go back!”
“Great week! (This is the second time I’ve come to the yoga course in Cap Sizun) Friendly, open and caring atmosphere. Flo gives us great yoga classes, adapted to each person’s level. Flore manages the logistics very well. Chef Manu cooks us good food with love. The group of “trainees” is always a good match. We do yoga, we swim, we can go on a long-distance trip, we can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, the landscapes, etc. Happiness! I highly recommend !!!!!”
“I had the great pleasure of attending a yoga retreat organised by Origyne.s at the Pointe du Raz in Brittany. The retreat was simply perfect and exactly what I was looking for.
Flore, the organiser, and Flo, the yoga teacher, are welcoming, caring people who listen to everyone’s needs.
We were a small group of 9 participants with very different levels of yoga, Flo was very good at adapting the practice for everyone.
The setting was exceptional, at the Pointe du Raz, 5 minutes from the Baie des Trépassés, we stayed in an old school with an old-fashioned charm. The accommodation was simple but comfortable, with enough space for all participants.
A final note to underline the succulent meals that Monsieur Manu prepared for us all week with good humour.
I highly recommend this retreat.”
“It’s my turn to thank you so much for the organization before and during the yoga week; thanks to you and Britt we had more than just a magical time, all topped off with your kindness and good humor!!!
All full of laughter, tears, moments of deep peace, joy of living, friendship, and so much more… bravo to all!!!”
“I took part in a yoga retreat in Morocco with Origynes and it was a really wonderful experience! Everything exceeded expectations: the venue, staff, yoga classes and overall organization. I loved that we were in a secluded, beautiful location which was perfect for the vibe of the retreat. A real gem which I am sure was not easy to find! Flore and Jennifer were spot on and very helpful, we didn’t need to worry about anything during our stay and had a super relaxing time. I look forward to my next retreat!”
WHAT STYLES OF YOGA ARE TAUGHT?
Several styles of yoga are offered at our retreats, with a particular focus on hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga.
In addition to postural practice, we always include meditation, pranayama (breathing) and mantra chanting, with occasional reflections and discussions on yoga philosophy.
WHAT ARE THE BOOKING CONDITIONS?
To book your place on one of our retreats, simply complete the online booking form and pay a 50% deposit.
There is a minimum number of people for each retreat to be confirmed (normally between 6 and 8 people). The retreat is therefore confirmed once the minimum number has been reached and at the latest 3 weeks before the start of the stay.
I AM A BEGINNER IN YOGA AND NOT FLEXIBLE AT ALL? CAN I PARTICIPATE IN YOUR RETREATS?
Of course! Our retreats are open to everyone and to all levels, our teachers know how to adapt to the needs of each participant.
Yoga is a path on which each yogi advances at his or her own pace and without judgment. There are many variations for each posture to suit the flexibility or physical condition of each individual, so no worries.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR YOUR STAYS ABROAD?
When the stay is confirmed, about 3 weeks before departure, we will send you an email with all the practical details about the retreat. However, remember to check in advance on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/conseils-aux-voyageurs what you need to travel (passport, visa, entry formalities, vaccinations, health restrictions etc.)
We are firmly committed to organising yoga retreats that are eco-responsible and as waste-free as possible.
Meals are made with local and seasonal products, mostly vegetarian according to preference.
We donate 1% of our annual turnover to the 1% for the Planet association, which supports environmental protection organisations, and we offer you the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions of your retreat or to sponsor a beehive if you wish.
