On a French immersion trip to the south west of France, in the divinely gorgeous Saint-Jean-de-Luz, an unexpected highlight of the week was the daily early morning yoga class with Louise Godfrey. Louise has been a student and  exceptional teacher of yoga for a couple of decades. We chat with Louise about teaching yoga in French, as well as two of her most wonderful French experiences. One was a visit she had to Chateau Bosgouet in Normandy, the home of author Jane Webster. The other was a stay at  Plum Village, an old monastery that now focusses on mindfulness practice with teachings based on Buddhism and the art of mindful living, founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.  

Louise shared her go-to French food she grabs as soon as she arrives in France: an almond croissant and we hear a cover of a Georges Brassens classic Je Me Suis Fait Tu Petit. 

This episode also includes a check in with our regular French chatter Sarah Zwick. It was wonderful to hear Sarah and her family are doing well,  living in the south west of France in Bayonne and  fascinating to hear of the current COVID situation from an insider's perspective in France.
