DSY Pyrenean Yoga and Hiking Holiday
3 - 10 July 2020

Further details (including the full schedule) plus booking form will be available soon.

This seven-day yoga and hiking holiday in the French Atlantic Pyrenees is for keen walkers, with daily yoga classes led by Duncan Hulin and hiking led by Stephen Bateman.

The holiday includes morning and evening yoga, daily mountain hiking, creative vegetarian food and packed lunches each day.

The holiday builds up to a three-day (two-overnight) hiking excursion into the Pyrenean National Park, where we sleep and eat under the stars, in modern, well-equipped mountain refuges.

During the first two days of the holiday, we will prepare body, mind and spirit for our adventure through yoga classes and local strength-building hikes.

On the third day we will begin our three-day (two-overnight) hiking excursion into the high mountains, where we will discover hidden places and secrets of both ourselves and the mountains, at every step.

With Stephen leading the hikes and Duncan shepherding from the rear to be sure no-one strays, we will enjoy three days and two magical nights in totally breathtaking scenery, sleeping and eating in refuges. (More information about these three days will be available soon.)

On the fifth day we will descend and return to our base in the Pays Basque for an afternoon chill and restorative evening yoga session.  

On our final day the group will visit the local market town, to shop for local produce with an afternoon option to relax at the local thermal spa baths.

Accommodation is "rustic French" with shared bathrooms at The Bar House, in the small picturesque village of Roquiague, near Mauleon and the larger market town of Oloron-Saint-Maria, Pays Basque.

The full programme begins each day with early starts, hearty breakfasts, ascending hikes, nutritious vegetarian food and packed lunches.

This is a yoga adventure holiday that will leave you feeling renewed, full of energy and vitality. Participants should expect limited Internet and mobile access, with some silences.
