Welcome to WAYA Mindful Holidays & Retreats! WAYA stands for Welcome As You Are. We believe that you can contribute the most in this world, when you take good care of yourself first: a healthy body, a calm mind, and equanimity in spirit. We also know, from our own experience, how you can lose that sense of calm in the throng of everyday life. To have the feeling there’s not enough time to do the things that really matter to you. With WAYA we aim to offer a space where people can really get back to themselves. A place where they can fully be themselves. To allow all the stresses of everyday life, their mask, stresses, worries, or pressure, to drop away.
A place that feels like a sigh of relief as soon as you arrive. A place where you can be who you are. Feel what you feel. A place to breathe, rest, connect and enjoy. Where you can either retreat, or seek the company of others. A place where we respect one another and allow each to do their own thing. And we are here to assist you if you wish. With a delicious breakfast, with (optionally) a yoga class, meditation session, coaching or massage. All so that by the time you leave you feel closer to yourself, more connected to your own heart, and to your environment, and can carry that out into the world.
We would like to welcome you in the south of France at Domaine Saint Domingue, a 12 hectare estate with a Mediterranean garden. This old wine farm has been restored and transformed into a country house with spacious and comfortable rooms. A peaceful, light and welcoming place where you can relax and enjoy. The Domaine Saint Domingue is located in Narbonne, close to the Mediterranean sea and the mountains, a few minutes from the center of this beautiful tourist town.
