Run the stunning trails of the spectacular Gorges du Verdon in the Grand Canyon of Europe. A unique site located in Haute Provence – just two hours away from the Côte d’Azur, Nice, France. Scattered with vineyards and fragrant lavender fields, trail runs are packed with stunning scenery and breathtaking panoramas, and an opportunity to work on your technique and strength with a specific programme designed and instructed by our specialist running coach, Gray Caws.
Gray is a master ChiRunning and Oxygen Advantage Coach and Teacher Trainer based in the UK. He is also a specialist Personal Trainer and Buteyko Practitioner. He brings his practice and teaching skills learned over the years to coaching on worldwide retreats. He believes that taking time out of our usual everyday routine, exploring different environments, learning new skills, or fine tuning an existing one helps us to gain a clearer focus, and deeper insight into ourselves. And therefore a great way to reset mind and body. Alongside his regular movement practice, Gray enjoys reading, researching and keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in health and fitness. His teaching style is relaxed, encouraging clients to question, experiment and experience.
“I’m delighted to be part of this new retreat for 2022 in France alongside Louise and Pascale. The aim of the retreat is to make running these stunning trails loads of fun so that you’ll want to keep doing it! And to give you the time and space to reset, re-energise, and refocus your mind and body. The central theme throughout all of my teaching is that of mindful movement. This simply means having an intention and paying attention to how and why you move. And what better way to experience this than in like-minded company and amazing surroundings practicing daily ChiRunning, breathwork, conditioning, and meditation.”
We also have an in-house specialist sports massage therapist, Jane Leonard, for those days when you need something a bit more than a stretch. (Available at EURO 70 per 60 min session)
