This seven-night Martinique retreat is the perfect week to refresh mind, body and spirit.
Our seven-night Martinique retreat led by seasoned Kundalini and Hatha teacher Cristin Tighe (Simran Kaur) will be the perfect week to refresh mind, body and spirit. We will be staying oceanside at at L'Imperatrice Village in Trois Ilets on the southwestern coast of the island. This authentic French residence offers simple yet comfortable creole bungalows with airy colorful decor, small covered patios - and air conditioning! There are double and single occupancy rooms available within the bungalows (three units in each). Guests care for their own space and the front desk is available if any needs come up. What might be lacking in terms of "luxury" is certainly made up for by the rare, private yet accessible location, stunning natural beauty and amenities of this unique property. Our retreaters absolutely loved it last year, and we are thrilled to be returning once again!
The food at L'Imperatrice, which we will enjoy in their lovely beachfront cafe, is a huge highlight. The chefs take great care to provide fresh, local, creative cuisine - mindfully nourishing each guest and taking care to accommodate any dietary restrictions.The L'Imperatrice grounds are spacious and vibrant with gorgeous gardens and paths, a large sun-soaked ocean view pool, covered creole style yoga gazebo, and cafe just steps away from a small private beach! The water is calm and inviting. Our retreat group will share the property with other travelers but have our own space for yoga practice and other gatherings. You will find recent reviews from happy travelers here (copy and paste the reviews into Google Translate to read).
Each morning of your retreat (aside form departure day) will begin with a full Kundalini sadhana (practice) to invigorate you, support you in exploring your potential, and open up pathways to deep rest, calm, and contentment. Four additional afternoon practices will consist of more mellow Hatha style offerings, from gentle flow to restorative. Cristin's teaching is a true gift; her thoughtful guidance and 100% presence helps to create space for yogis of all levels of experience to delve into their practice in a transformative way.
We are so lucky to be working once again with Trish Perkins of Tropical Escapes. Trish lives on Martinique, has coordinated many yoga retreats in the Caribbean, and has planned an incredible week for us. She also speaks French fluently and her translation skills are key! Our retreat will include two group excursions (one on land and one one at sea), with several additional options as well - so you can decide when you want to adventure, and when you want to chill.
At your leisure, you can also walk about 8 minutes from L'Imperatrice Village to catch a ferry ($9 round-trip) to Anse L'Ane Beach or Fort de France (the capital). A twenty minute walk (along the beach or through the neighborhood) brings you to the shops and restaurants of Trois Ilets. To enhance your quiet relaxation time, consider booking a session with our massage therapist at L'Imperatrice. In short, there are ample options to create your own perfect recipe for rest and rejuvenation on this retreat. Refresh the senses, warm the soul, try something new and take some time just to be. Can't wait to take this island journey together!
