Welcome to Praana Wellness

We are based in a petit chateau in South West France between Bordeaux and Cognac, nestled amongst the vines with a vista that stretches for tens of miles across the Charente countryside. The centre hosts many people travelling here from around the world for therapy, for a special event or business event or simply for rest and recuperation. For 2021 we have introduced a virtual community group to help those who can’t make the journey to us because of the global restrictions.

It’s amazing how we all have very different lives in a variety of different places yet a similar thread of realizing how important self caring is for us all… Thank you to Amanda and all in this group for the support.

I’ve so enjoyed this group and had definitely made the lows of lockdown a little less tough! Some fantastic advice to stay mindful on choices and work towards balance.

I’ve loved these days, it has definitely helped with lockdown. It is like I’ve been given permission to make some time for me, whether that is reading, yoga, a bath and that has brought some sense of being more centred.
