About Elegances Retreats
A team, a community
We are two women, a mother and daughter duo, Naila and Brigitte. Two generations, two life approaches.
We both have experience in wellness, yoga, meditation, reiki and energy work. We have learned with different teachers and are certified by Yoga Alliance. We work together in creating our own retreats and gathering our forces to offer a real experience, to create a family, a community to heal and grow together.
Our knowledge and experiences are only offered in retreats format. Why? Because they are not your typical yoga retreat. We design a journey to yourself using yoga, meditations, workshops as techniques for you to work on your mindset, your energies, your chakras and your life goals for you to evolve.
All retreats are small and take places in unique and safe environement. Each time we bring different teachers to complement our offering for you to get the best and come back as a changed person after one week with us. We are offering you a completely new way of living, of thinking and of approaching life.
Our journeys have brought us to India, Costa Rica, France, Bali and been inspired by teachers like Kia Miller, Tommy Roden, Emily Kuser, Uma Dinsmore Tuli, Bex Tyrer, Gunjan Trivedi, and many more .
