With classes held in the yoga pavilion or beside the pool, practising yoga within the beauty of Villa Tropez is to experience something really special. Our Hatha-based yoga classes follow the Viniyoga tradition, which means adapting to meet to the needs of the students. Age, size and ability are irrelevant as the classes, with never more than 12 students, vary in content, pace and dynamism according to the ability and requirements of the individuals. Classes include physical postures, breath work and meditation. Morning classes will be an energising practice designed to wake up and strengthen body and mind, and the afternoon classes restorative, to help you relax, reduce stress and reconnect.
Meeting in our outdoor classroom under the wisteria clad arbor, by the old olive tree, you will learn about naturopathic and Mediterranean health principles. With cheat sheets to take home with quick, super-simple anti-oxidant nutrition tips, you’ll seamlessly be able to add this expert health advice into your daily routine. A guided walk through our organic gardens and surrounding vineyards, in harmony with the surrounding Mediterranean landscape, you will see, smell and help harvest herbs that can be used for every day relaxation and healing. A Mediterranean healing workshop will reawaken your body and mind to a grass-roots level of wellness, remembering how important the simple things in life are, and how easy it is to have healing ingredients in your kitchen at home. You will enjoy a hands-on experience of blending your own herbal teas, which our experienced Naturopath will help you select according to your requirements, for common problems such as low energy, digestive problems, stress and sleeplessness. Together we will create a beneficial yet delicious tea blend, tailored to your own needs. You will take as a souvenir, these little sachets of Provençal wellness back home with you, to continue the healthy rituals from the Villa Tropez retreat once back in your daily routine.
The perfect setting
Just outside of St Tropez, Villa Tropez offers luxury accommodation with a rustic back-to-the-earth feel, and all the facilities one would expect in a jet-set destination. Nestled among rolling hills of vineyards, olive and oak trees, Villa Tropez offers relaxed luxury and privacy within one acre of lush gardens. The villa’s elevated position provides panoramic views of the valley of St Tropez. The stone-paved terraces dotted with sun-loungers, and beautifully designed pool-house with ornate tiled wet bar and shaded pool-side lounge seating, conjure up the atmosphere of a Côte d’Azur beach club. Inside, there are designer interiors, high timber-trussed ceilings, cool natural stone floors and spacious open-plan living areas that capture the views and fresh sea air.
