We are located in Chalabre, a medieval village in the foothills of the mediterranean Pyrenees in the very south of France - a region of stunning beauty and fascinating history.
When we are not hosting or preparing for retreats, yogis and meditators may stay in residence for 3 nights or more to explore this magical part of France, or simply to relax and rejuvenate.
Our retreats are an invitation to you to join our daily practice and to embark on a deepening exploration of your individual spiritual journey. All retreats include periods of silence for reflection and to assist retreating and connecting with our core self.
Yobaba Lounge's rich and soulful approach to yoga and meditation support the wellness program. This is taught in our beautiful 100sqm Yoga Shala. Located on the top floor, overlooking the medieval roof tops, and greeting the morning sun, it is a sanctuary of earthy calm.
Number of guests per retreat is limited (maximum 10) which allows us to give you personal and one-to-one attention as needed.
The retreats are hosted by former fencing athlete Gertrud Keazor, founder of Yobaba Lounge and the dynamic mindfulness practice of Embodied Meditation. The award winning format was developed together with yoga and retreat teacher Mangalo in 2014.
The retreats are suitable for those new to yoga or meditation and those already proficient.
In between hosting retreats, yogis and meditators are invited to stay on a nightly basis in our gorgeous rooms. Come on self-retreat or make this your base from where to explore this magical region.
To get here, fly to Carcassonne (RyanAir) or Toulouse (EasyJet, BA, Air France).
