We, Phil and Marie, are an Anglo-French couple who decided to give up our jobs and move to France to open some Gites as yoga retreats. Having travelled around France looking for a place where we would like to live, we eventually came across the Vosges. Little known to the French, let alone the rest of the world, we found it entrancing. Its natural beauty and continental climate giving each season a unique feel. With skiing in the winter and outdoor Yoga in the summer it is a perfect area to be.
With DOWNWARD MOKEY YOGA will be offering a range of yoga classes suitable for all levels. Our package aims to restore your mind and balance your body though a variety of Yoga styles and tailor made Spa treatments.
