We are accepting expressions of interest for September 2025 when we plan to return to La Tailede.
The provisional dates are 11th-15th September 2025 (but may be subject to change!)
Join us for our first ever yoga retreat at La Taillede in the French Pyrenees.
La Taillede is an ancient Catalan farmhouse, situated at 950m altitude, just outside the beautiful village of Corsavy in the Pyrenees Orientales region of France. Ali & Matt Cooper have beautifully renovated the farmhouse and created comfortable high-end holiday accommodation with amazing facilities.
With the secluded location, incredible mountain views and fresh air, we think this place looks rather special!
Ali & Matt run La Taillede as an eco farm and use sustainable methods to be as self-sufficient as possible. We will have the opportunity
to sample some of their fresh organic produce during our stay as well as meet their friendly animals!
The local area has so much to see and do. This stunning location is perfect for outdoor activities with many routes for walking,
running and mountain biking direct from the farm. Route guides and maps are available in the accommodation. The local river has small pools ideal for wild swimming and cooling down on a warm day.
The lovely mountain village of Corsavy is walking distance with the Mediterranean coast only an hour's drive away.
We will be enjoying four nights at La Taillede (Thursday to Monday).
We want this retreat to be small and intimate so there are only a maximum of 14 places available - we suggest booking early!
If you have any questions about the retreat there are some answers to common questions at the bottom of this page,
otherwise feel free to get in touch.
The accommodation is arranged into four stunning gites. Each gite has a terrace, kitchen, living area with log burner and at least one bathroom.
We will have exclusive use of the whole property during our stay including all of the facilities:
Swimming pool with large terrace and sun loungers
Sauna with cold water plunge pool
Two wood fired hot tubs
Numerous places for chilling out including meditation room, sunny terraces and hammocks dotted throughout the forest.
A local masseuse is available to book at an extra cost.
Let's start with the yoga!
Every day there will be at least two sessions of yoga including Richard's signature dynamic yoga (if you know you know!), as well as Hatha, Yin and restorative yoga. There will be daily pranayama as well as yoga talks and discussion.
We will also be organising a guided walk each morning, one of which will be a 10k loop accompanied by the donkeys!
The afternoons will give you some free time to explore the local area and sample the wonderful facilities at La Taillede.
You can be as active or chilled out as you like!
Please note that this is an initial plan, the final schedule will be confirmed nearer the time.
All yoga will be taught by Richard or Kat, to get to know us click the button below:
Catering for the retreat will be provided by the wonderful Karolina, a chef and naturopath who specialises in delicious and healthy vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
Every review we have read about Karolina's food has been incredible and we are so happy that she will be keeping us all
well fed throughout our stay.
We will be enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner (with a glass of local wine or beer should you wish). Tea, coffee and a wide selection of herbal teas will be available at all times. Dietary requirements can of course be catered for.

We are fully expecting to have guests book a shared room place as an individual. We will do our utmost to match you with a roomie of the same sex who we feel you would get along with, it could be the start of a beautiful friendship!
There are several options - this is one of the reasons we chose this venue!
Flying is the cheapest, the Eurostar train is a more eco option but costs a little more and takes longer. Of course it's perfectly possible to drive and this is a great option if you want to extend your stay. Parking is available at the venue.
We can arrange transfers from Perpignan (for flights and the Eurostar), this will incur an additional cost. We will endeavour to group people together for any transfers to reduce costs.
No. We strongly recommend all our guests take out travel insurance.
