Dear friends,

As many of you know, my friend Galen and I are working together with Judy Dubois, an English teacher in France, to create a really special Language + Yoga retreat in France this May. The retreat is definitely a go, but we’d really like to have a few more people in this inaugural group (we’re hoping to make this a regular thing if it goes well this year).
We’re cutting registration off on March 15, so time is of the essence. It would mean a lot to me if you’d be willing to share the information below with people you know who might be interested and listservs you are on. Also, of course, I’d LOVE to have any of you join me!!!!! Website & registration can be found here:
Thanks so much for your help & support,
your friend Anna

Dear friends and neighbors,

Registration for the Yoga + French retreat in Agen, France is closing on March 15. Join my friend Galen Tromble (yoga teacher par excellence) and me (French teacher) for a week of fun and stress-free immersive French language learning + yoga in the beautiful town of Agen, located in the south of France halfway between Toulouse and Bordeaux.

Because half of the participants will be French people learning English, you’ll be meeting and conversing with French people during the retreat–you won’t be in an American bubble. Our friend and colleague Judy Dubois, who teaches English in Agen, will be leading the English classes.

The program will serve people at all levels of language & yoga ability, from beginners to the highly proficient.
