I wholeheartedly recommend Christine’s yoga retreat as a wonderful event suitable for people of all yoga capbilities. There were really experienced people in our group who were challenged to the max whilst at the same time those of us who were virtual beginners were helped and encouraged so that we were all fully participating and getting the most from the sessions.
Christine was fun and enthusiastic and it was so nice having sessions in English and French.
All set in a glorious location with a great mix of English and French yoga fans.
I’ll definitely be signing up for the next one !

The YogaFlower retreat in Lesches en Diois (Drôme) was wonderful in every aspect, and Christine has totally rekindled my enthusiasm for yoga !
I have practiced yoga ,with varying amounts of enthusiasm, for 30 odd years, so I know how important it is to have a teacher one can trust and feel comfortable with. Christine is such a teacher. She was able to help me into asanas that I thought were beyond my capabilities, by using equipment and props to accommodate my physical limitations. I found Christine’s instructions clear and succinct, and completely understandable in both English and French, and her gentle melodious voice made relaxation a blissful experience!

Outre la qualité et le sérieux de l'enseignement, ce sont la fantaisie et la gaieté de Christine que j'ai particulièrement appréciées; ces qualités sont pour moi essentielles à la construction d'une ambiance digne du yoga : partage, amitié, joie ! C'est ce que nous avons rencontré lors du stage proposé par Christine le week-end de Toussaint de l'année 2016.
In addition to the quality and seriousness of teaching, was the imagination and cheerfulness of Christine that I particularly enjoyed. These qualities are, for me, essential to the building of an atmosphere worthy of yoga: sharing, friendship and joy! "That's what we encountered during the workshop proposed by Christine for the Toussaint Weekend-2016"

"If you want to learn or practice yoga in a friendly atmosphere, do not hesitate you are at the right address with Christine ! You can be certain that she will combine the practice with joy and benevolence, ideal for relaxing and revitalizing in a light-hearted setting."

After a year of regular Iyengar yoga practice in the Hérault, I attended the four-day « Yoga, the Breath & the Voice » workshop in the Drôme, hosted by Christine. As a professional singer and musician, I was enthusiastic about the topics chosen for the retreat, which corresponded with Ms. Flowers’ well-established singing and teaching career.
Eleven women attended and the levels of practice were very different. Some participants were beginners and others were Iyengar teachers! Despite these differences, Ms. Flowers was at ease in negotiating the program and sequences. She easily adjusted the postures for each participant based on their individual skills. Some of the students were from London, so the workshop was both in English and in French. The quality of the course is due to how precise and concise her explanations are of the postures and preparations.
She never hesitated to correct the participants by coming around to highlight errors and make adjustments where needed in the posture, which was of paramount quality for me. Another essential quality: she is very patient with her students. She facilitates the access to this discipline with a playful approach and an investment and generous availability with each student. She exudes the pleasure to teach and to share her knowledge and practice of yoga with just the right touch of humour! We sense very clearly that she is passionate and determined!
You can see her rigor through the work she has put in to building the course and her choices are judicious and relavent. It was a real pleasure and a super opportunity to be able to attend this retreat with Christine as a guide and teacher because she transmits her passion and makes you want to excel in this practice!
