Hi, I am Tamsin from the UK. I moved to France six years ago to set up a small retreat venue for yoga. Six years on and my French is passable and the place has developed into a home of wellbeing that receives guests twice a month from April to October and closed during the summer months when too hot.
Life is slow here and would suit helpers that are self-motivated, enjoy silence and happy to be by themselves as much as spend time with me. I can only accommodate one, possibly two people at a time as there is only ever enough work for this amount of helpers.
The village is very quiet, situated between Bordeaux and Toulouse, set on a hill, surrounded by woodland. The house has been restored to offer three double/twin rooms, accommodating 6 guests.
I live here with my rescue animals; two cats and two dogs. It's a very peaceful way of life. I spend a lot of time by myself and I enjoy nature, I love to cook, take photos, write and teach classical Hatha Yoga.
I provide healthy vegetarian food and yoga classes. I am organised, practical, resourceful and capable of many things but it's much more enjoyable sharing skills and ideas with others and there is always plenty to do!
There are also nice places to visit in and around the area. Summer night markets, amazing farmers markets at the weekend, live music and a nearby lake with SUP and wake boarding.

The quietness of the place provides an opportunity to stop and observe what is going on in your life. The flow and rhythm suits people that are on a journey of self-inquiry and reflection. I have a daily practice and helpers may use the space to benefit from the shared energy and discipline to gain their own self practice and I am happy to share my knowledge of yoga.

** Please Note **
Please write expressing why you think you have the right skills to help and not just that you wish to practice yoga.
I live a peaceful life, we practice and I am sure you can learn lots, but I also have to get things done ;-)
I cannot offer yoga training or teaching opportunities (unless you are Sivananda trained). I also cannot offer practitioners opportunities to offer their treatments to guests, as I have specific Ayurvedic and Chinese practitioners I work with in France.
Lastly, sorry but I cannot accommodate children as I have a rescue dog that doesn't like small kids.
English and a little French
Bedroom with ensuite bathroom
There is a bus from a nearby village into the nearest large town - Agen - to explore at the weekends, a couple of bikes to cycle along the canal, lots of walks and places to run from the house, the yoga studio is free to use when there are no retreats on and I teach a couple of times a week so its possible to join the classes. There are also plenty of books you can borrow.
