7Elements Summer Retreat in Western France!

about this event

Join us for the 2023 7-Elements Summer Yoga Retreat! This one of a kind, magical retreat is immersed in the nature of beautiful French Basque Country. over 6 days/5 nights you will be in connection with every element of nature – both within and all around us. This magical experience will take place from Sunday, July 30 – Friday, August 4 in a charming countryside cottage that used to be a working windmill on the south western coast of France, close to the beaches of Bayonne. 

Throughout the days you will be guided through yoga + embodied movement, meditation, mindful crafting activities, group adventures, and sacred ceremony. Our journey through the elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Sound, Light, and Thought, will be lovingly supported by the profound illumination of the Aquarius Full Moon.

International wellness guides + healers Benjamin Hart + Stephanie Wallace created Sun Son Moon Mystic as an embodiment of their work, creating a beautifully harmonized balance of mystic insights, mindful movement, and deeply healing guidance to connect mind, body, spirit, with the power of community in nature. Much like the power of the relationship between the sun + moon, their complimentary styles provide for a delightfully diverse collection of practice + ceremony throughout the week.

Some other exciting attributes of this location are a gorgeous pond and creek with waterfalls, an extremely charming barn space for our daily practices and events, and spacious lawns and gardens for meditative strolls and relaxation. Each day will be creatively curated with yoga sequences connected to the Elements, vegan and vegetarian feasts that we will be concocting together this year, adventures and excursions to the surrounding treasures, dance parties, full moon ceremony, guided meditations, art projects, and fun fun fun.

Robust, detailed schedule coming soon, but in the meantime here is a little overview of our time here!

Tentative schedule and details to come. In the meantime, are you ready for some summer magic?! Make your deposit today, and we will be in touch about your room selection and any additional information you may need.


In terms of transportation considerations, trains may arrive to Bayonne or Dax. Flights may arrive to Biarritz (or if you are flying internationally and/or continuing your journey after the retreat and Paris/CDG makes the most sense with your other travel adventures, plan on about a 5-6 hour train from there). Shuttle service can be arranged to the cottage from most nearby stations.
