Most of us alternated spending sun-drenched days lounging by the pool, stollling through the grounds plucking juicy cherries from the trees, and accompanying Emily on her crafted tours of towns, sights, and flavors…. “Shall we stop at the chocolate factory after our bike tour through the Chateauneuf Du Pape countryside anyone?”  Yes!  Please!!!

Regardless of how or where each of us spent the day, we all came together for our gentle afternoon yoga session and the sumptuous evening meals prepared by our resident chef, Jude.  We effortlessly swapped stories and photos from the day, our lives back home, and hopes for the future.  By mid-week, we were amazed by a shared sense that we had come from far around the world to relax with a group of friends in warmth, sweetness and support.  Our final dinner felt like a spontaneous closing ceremony as we serenaded each other with our national anthems from the Netherlands, Norway, Belgium, Canada (mom/daughter duet!!!), the US, England and France.  A remarkable group of yogis in an unsurpassable setting – Provence.

Here’s to an amazing time together… below are a few photos and some music from our time together.  ~ Love, Christine
