Another cosy night by the fire post yoga and a delicious meal! Does this look like your dream way to spend the holidays? We have some lucky yogi's arriving soon to enjoy this for our New Year's Retreat which is now sold out! #newyearnewyou
Returning guests. A recurring thing here at LUX.
Our recent New Year's Eve retreat in class. Classes on retreat can often be up to 3 hours. This is because here at LUX we offer our students growth in their practice through workshop style classes. Not just your regular yoga flows #luxlife
Come here. Feel good. Simple as that.
Friendships made here will be some of the strongest friendships you will ever have.
We believe you should have all the support you need. And sparkly shorts if you want. That's up to you. Teaching is a scaffolding system, a way of holding space in a focused way so that students can apply their own raw materials to the job #regram @benjamin.sears

Unwind. A healthy practice has a beginning, middle and end — a single loop that becomes an upward helix. Finish what's been started, or continue until you know you need go no further.
The positive ego is the one that turns the off-balance feeling of a correction into a hunger to make it the new reference point for progress. You're not expected to find the whole way by yourself. The negative ego is the one that says it's more important to look like you already know, that retracts at a reflection. Listen, you're not gonna lose your ego in this lifetime. The ego is the embodiment of the supreme, so use it towards uplifting ends. Almost nothing is more hollow and pedantic than a yoga teacher preaching at you to lose your ego. Use that shit for good. Words, Benjamin Sears.
Our retreats are kept small so that we can give you the attention you deserve in every class.
Help people feel. Hand over the keys. I teach for sense memory. For my students: to encourage the self-sufficiency that comes from knowing one's own neurology — simply how it feels to be in the center of the pose, where the edges are, and how the middle connects to the circumference. For me: the reminder, the kind reflection of those who let me lead that I'm worthy to do so. My god, the leap of faith they take. Words by Lux Founder & Owner, Benjamin Sears.
Fresh flowers for the Villa.
Our guests enjoy an excursion to Tourrettes-sur-Loup, where we love to visit a small local glacier called Tom's. The village is famous for cultivating violets which are used in the perfumes made in nearby Grasse as well as in specialty confectioner shops in the area. Tom uses the local violets in his ice cream. We recommend trying a cone of violet flavoured ice cream with a crystallized violet garnish.
