    UPDATE SUMMER 2018
    hello everybody, I'm not currently teaching regular yoga or circus classes as I am focusing on transforming the grange for winter habitation. Still plenty of opportunities do do your own training and participate in random 'jams'.

    UPDATE WINTER 2018/2019
    Hi there all, I am looking for someone responsible to house sit for winter. Needs to be someone responsible and able to use own initiative living remotely on a small holding. Don't hesitate to get in touch and we can talk possibilities if you think it might be something for you.

    I live on 10 hectares of land at the foothills of the pyrenees in a small hamlet of 8 houses with my property bordering a wild forest including chestnut, ash, oak, acacia and cherry.
    During the summer months I teach weekly classes in Acroyoga and Iyengar yoga and have an outdoor aerial rig where i teach tissu and trapeze. Part of my project involves transforming a grange to create a living space for myself and a big, light, warm, welcoming place where we can practice all year round yoga, circus, music and numerous others creative activities. I grow most of my own fruit and vegetables and collect hazelnuts, walnuts, mushrooms and wild herbs from the forest. I cut my own wood. much of the wood used in the construction has been harvested from my forest and cut using my friends mobile saw mill. I have 10 goats, 4 sheep, 5 ducks a dog and a cat and friends graze their 3 horses. Foix is 12 minutes by car. there are spare bikes and wifi if you have your own computer. For accommodation there is one caravan or camping in tents.
    As my title says I am into simple living. I have no running hot water. To wash i have an outdoor fire bath or i heat my water on the gas and take a bucket bath outdoors. I enjoy and take pride in eating fresh food from the garden and prefer to be creative with dishes with what i can source locally than going to the supermarket.
    i am big on 'hugelkulture' beds and love to see a good layer of mulch in the garden.
    I am working on a solar shower and the run off will be filtered by a reed bath with the overflow going to my duck bath and then vegetables. i am careful to use only natural products for washing and cleaning.
    It is great if everyone can participate in cooking and daily tasks of maintaining the space such as sweeping and general tidying. If you are not confident in cooking don't worry, it is a great opportunity to learn as all the ingredients are so fresh and tasty you can't go wrong and we will help.

    Current and ongoing projects include; construction; laying a floor, insulating with sheep's wool, installing windows, stone work and lime rendering. Installing a grey water filtration system with reed beds. vegetable growing, land clearing and forest work. longer term projects include mosaic and mass rocket stove.

    I am Australian and speak English and French. I live alone but with locals often dropping in, friends staying and other helpers about.

    any questions do not hesitate, i look forward to hearing from you.
