art + yoga + writing = paris 2014

Bonjour readers. Finally, here's the skinny on next year's long-anticipated France adventure. The date is July 1-5, 2014 which works within a US holiday to offer you additional vacay time. Also, this year's retreat will offer a new writing component to help jump-start aspiring authors, journalers, memoirists, and dabblers as only Paris can do. In addition, I've added a jaunt to Marie Antionette's Estate at Versailles and a perfume-making workshop. I look forward to taking you on this sensory-filled adventure in my favorite city next year. Bisous.

perfume making

Join moi for a 5-day/4-night extravaganza to Paris indulging your artistic side. This journey includes five decadent days spent exploring the City of Light through led art and writing workshops, yoga, and flea marketing PLUS free time for tiptoeing through the Tuileries, indulging at a hamam (Turkish bath), window shopping along the Champs Élysées, visiting a Monet at Musée d’Orsay, and sipping café au lait at one of the countless sidewalk cafés.

 Marie Antionette's Estate

Each day will include a leisurely breakfast followed by various outings as a small group including yoga in Luxembourg Gardens, afternoon tea time at Ladurée, guided art journaling and writing workshops in picturesque gardens and sidewalk cafés, a perfume-making workshop, an Artist Date day trip to Marie Antionette’s Estate at Versailles, mindfulness meditation in a Gothic-style church, and led flea market gallivanting. There will be a few hours of open space each day for exploring the city on your own (or taking a delicious nap).
