Sweat, Stretch, Smile

30th September - 7th October 2017

Yoga Teacher, Cat Meffan, and Personal Trainer, Carly Rowena, bring their laughter, joy and an inspirational combination of fitness workouts and yoga to our Manoir.  The setting of this duo in the calming vibes of the rolling French hills at Manoir La Croix de La Jugie is the perfect pairing to find your best you.  Carly, Cat, and La Jugie's owner, Clio, all advocate balance and finding a healthy and happy way to feel incredible in your own skin, and this week in France will be a kickstart to a fabulously fit and healthy outlook.  

Cat and Carly are firm friends and their partnership at La Jugie brings together their complementary background in yoga and physical training to help strengthen and tone your body and increase your fitness  all-round, allowing your muscles different workouts over the course of the week and making sure to help them recover as well as tiring them out.

Food is equally important to your body's work and recovery, so you'll enjoy healthy, balanced and delicious meals throughout the week which will give you the fuel and nutrients your body will need.  Using local ingredients, our freshly prepared meals are good for you, but don't worry there'll be a healthy dose of treats in there too - we are in France and it is a holiday after all!

 Whether you're already a fitster, or looking to kickstart your healthy lifestyle, Cat and Carly will work you hard but you'll leave with a smile on your face.

Prices from £750 per person for a shared room and from £1300 per person for single occupancy.  See below for rooms now available.
