I am beyond exited to announce my 2019 Women Rising Retreat at the incredible Chateau De Bardouly in the Dordogne Region of Southern France.

This Transformative Women-Only Retreat (sorry guys) will take place from July 13th - 20th 2019.

This retreat will be a place where every single participant experience the power of women rising together, supporting each other, lifting each other up to realize their own power and strength; whether it be yoga or in life! I want every participant coming home from this retreat to feel relaxed, renewed yet strong, healthy and with an understanding of their own power and potential.


…. spending a week in the magical setting of a French chateau; starting your days with yoga and meditation followed by beautiful farm to table vegetarian breakfast. Whether you decide to lounge by the pool all day, sitting with your morning practice, go hiking or maybe a wander in the local town, you will feel amazing by the end of the day, enjoying a little more yoga .. or maybe its cocktail time in the garden for you. This will be a week to recharge, transform and spoil yourself with yoga, meditation, beautiful scenery, gorgeous healthy food.. and maybe a glass of wine. No distractions.. just focus on you!

About the yoga

…. Nina has practiced yoga for more than 15 years. She is 41, living in  beautiful California Wine-Country just north of San Francisco and is a Yoga Alliance ERYT200, RYT500hr+ & YACEP certified yoga teacher, trained in Hatha and Smart Flow. Although her base is in Northern California, Nina  regularly teaches workshops and yoga festivals in Europe, Asia and the US. She contributes to magazines in the fitness industry both as a writer and cover girl and teaches online with www.Yogastream.dk. Nina is a self-confessed anatomy geek, but likes bending the rules and challenge yoga dogma. Her approach to asana is based on bio-mechanic intelligence and curiosity blended with classic yoga principles, which has resulted in her very own dynamic and unique style. 

Morning yoga at the retreat will be all-levels, dynamic vinyasa. Expect a lighthearted environment where you will be challenged but also a practice where there is room for laughter. You will come away from this retreat stronger, with improved mobility and balance in your body. Every morning class will also include relaxation and meditation.

Afternoon sessions will be more individual based - your own practice. We will warm up together and then you will work on what you need/want to work on. Nina will walk the room and give individual attention to your needs, be it spotting you in handstand or giving you a gentle hands-on adjustment.
