Feed Your Soul in France Retreat with Trish Whelan

• • 15 - 19 September 2021 • • St. Helen, France

A Shamanic Kundalini Yoga and Culinary Retreat
15 - 19 September, 2021

I’m thrilled to announce a new Soul Adventures offering in France with the wonderful Tess Prince who heads up Love Food Ibiza. Feed Your Soul is a Shamanic Kundalini yoga and culinary retreat at the utterly divine Le Manoir de Bourg, a magnificent 16th Century property located in the quaint Breton village of St. Helen in northern France.

Tess and I have been working together cooking up delicious retreats since 2014 so it was a natural progression that we would one day collaborate to co-present something a little different and this is it… a yogic food tour in Brittany.

Alongside the powerful yoga experiences we will also present the finest flavours of France in the menu and Tess has developed a colourful menu full of healthy twists on traditional French classics.

There will be a workshop afternoon where Tess will demonstrate many of her techniques so you can recreate some food alchemy of your own once back home.

On the Saturday after the morning yoga class we will enjoy a fabulous food tour to Dinard, Saint-Malo and Cancale, reputed to be the oyster capital of the world. History has it that Louis XIV had his oysters brought to Versailles from Cancale and in more recent times the famous New York chef Anthony Bourdain mentioned his oyster pilgramages here in Kitchen Confidential.

But for anyone not eating seafood we will still enjoy other French delicacies on the menu at the many bustling restaurants… not forgetting the fabulous Chablis van on the promenade – perfect for sipping chilled fine wine while watching the local fishermen return with their catch. The perfect finale to a magical day. 

On our doorstep lies the medieval town of Dinan, one of the most attractive and best-preserved towns in Brittany. We will take you on a journey back in time through its picturesque cobbled streets lined with ancient half-timbered houses, artisan shops and pretty cafes. 

This region of Brittany also has some of the best-kept beaches in France, both beautifully rustic and natural in landscape. The closest beach to Le Manoir is Mordreuc – famous for its wild resident seal named Florence!

I very much look forward to welcoming you here and in co-creating this special programme with Tess.
