Praana Wellness Retreats

Well Women’s October Retreat: An Ayurvedic Lifestyle for Managing the Menopause’

Dates: 3-5 October 2022 or 7-9 October 2022
Location: Praana Wellness, Chez Vallée, Saint Germain de Vibrac
Cost: €280 – €400 per person (depending on accommodation selected or single room supplements), all inclusive of accommodation, food and activities for the entire stay.

Description: In the western world, the menopause has been something that women have been encouraged to ‘bear’. Until recently there had been very little by way of valuable, systemic support, and lots of misdiagnoses, resulting in women being given medication to manage depression or anxiety (two of many symptomatic states routinely treated through medication), instead of addressing the underlying issues that often arise simply through neglect of a good self-care routine. Ayurveda is an extraordinary tool for supporting us through menopause.

In the eastern wisdom tradition of Ayurveda, the menopause is a time of celebration – freedom from certain bonds, a move to the Vata stage of life, dominated by space and air. This is the polar-opposite to how most people in the west view the menopause. During our retreat we will aim to do some myth-busting and help you create new habits and routines that will serve you to navigate through the menopause with a positive mindset. 

Your luxury stay will be fully catered by a private chef, and all group activities are included in the price of the stay.
