City life to beach life began in 2009 with career breaks, adventure travel and care free seasonal jobs. Seeking the simple life and more purpose our life style project in south west France began to manifest and the desire to return to “London town” dwindled along with our savings. To make it work we set up a camper business and learnt about holiday rentals and what guests want and are searching for. We opened a yoga studio and learnt about the serving yogis and how students practice evolves. We got married here followed by the arrival of a beautiful funny girl - roots planted and our plans developed along side our new life at Yoga Beach House.
Yoga Beach House has been created to share our passion for practicing yoga and living a yogic lifestyle, to be a sustainable family guest yoga home with our intention to spread peace, love and joy in an ever challenging and complicated world.
