Welcome to WAYA Mindful Holidays! WAYA is short for for “welcome as you are”. We believe that we people at the core have more in common than we differ from each other. Our dream is to create a place where people feel they can really be themselves. Where they can let go of what they carry in daily life: a mask, stress, worries, pressure, or loneliness …
A place that feels like a breather when you arrive. Where you can be who you are. May feel what you feel. Where you can breathe, rest, connect and enjoy. Where you can retire or look for company. Where we respect each other and give each other space, and where we are there for you if you wish. With a delicious breakfast or meal, with a good conversation that arises naturally or coaching sessions as desired.
We offer business retreats, personal retreats and yoga holidays. Besides that you can also book a room and use the living room, kitchen, garden and swimming pool. We then offer daily breakfast, dinner, and a yoga class that you can participate in. And if you want to come with a group, with family or friends, or to organize your own retreat, you can rent one of the two houses or the entire location. Even then we can provide breakfast, meals and yoga classes if desired. In addition, there is always the possibility to book a coaching session, private yoga class or massage.
We do all this at La Guiraude, a country house on a hill with a beautiful view over the fields. An open, light, free and cheerful place. Located half an hour from Toulouse-Blagnac airport, in the French department of Haute-Garonne.
And who are we? We are Jan and Cynthia, two Dutchies who moved to France in 2019 to make our dream come true. We are entrepreneurs with a passion for human resources, personal development and connection. We are looking forward to meeting you!
