    Description

    We live in the south of France,in the Herault, in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of the Haut Languedoc ,5 miles from the village of Vieussan, at an altitude of 1500feet, overlooking the valleys and hills.The view is magical, and the peace absolute.

    We, Kiet and Sandra and our 14 year old son Dalai, have lived 6 years in a yurt. Thanks to many helping hands, we are now in our renewed stone house which was a ruin. We also have a 65m2 yurt for workshops and we have started to welcome workshops mostly turned towards well being and awareness (yoga, meditation, qi gong, and also danse, music etc...)
    We teach qi gong and meditation, Sandra also gives dance lessons and has written a vegetarian cook book.
    We love silence, meditation, nature, good local food, mostly vegetarian.
