Yoga Beach House in south west France, by the Atlantic Ocean in the surfy town of Bisca Beach. Step out of the house and your senses are blessed with the ocean, beaches, pine forests and lakes. So healing. Thanks to many transformative classes, retreats and teacher trainings the lodge and studio has been filled with amazing energy that inspires an authentic yoga practice. We are proud that Yoga Beach House is a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance, a professional body with integrity supporting an international yoga network.
City life to beach life began in 2009 with career breaks, some adventure travel and seasonal jobs. Travelling and living in James' campervan we settled in Biscarrosse-Plage for the summer in 2010. The desire to return to city life dwindled quickly and we began planning enterprising ideas to sustain our new life at the beach. James started renting out his beloved "Virginia" campervan to holiday makers and quickly developed a business and small fleet of vintage vans while Rachel disappeared to an Ashram for yoga teacher training. A wedding, a baby and finding a beach house made our new life at the beach come true for real. and long term. We sold James' camper business and closed Rachel's small yoga studio joining forces to start Yoga Beach House in 2014. Renovating the old house, adding a yoga studio, creating guest bedrooms and a mindful ecological space fit for yogis slowly became a reality. Our story and project is evolving and we want you to be a part of it sharing our dream with us.
What is Yoga Beach House?
It is all in the name. A beach house with yoga as the principal activity. A comfortable lodge that provides a family home and guest rooms for yogis and a spacious wooden pine yoga studio that fuels the zen energy of the surrounding space with an inspirational schedule of classes, workshops and retreats.
The house is seconds from the Atlantic Ocean, too easy for a quick swim, surf or calming beach walk. The golden sandy beaches and dunes are amazing for beach yoga.. With 3 stunning lakes within 10 minutes of the house you can nip out for a stand up paddle yoga session easily.
The house was recently renovated with yoga at the heart by creating a mindful space with a vibe of peace and love. The interior is welcoming with natural pine and simple furniture, which has been restored or up-cycled.
