Suzie's honey tasting and bee workshop
Spending time with like-minded, inspirational girlfriends
Suzie, born and raised in Sydney, fell in love with a Frenchman and then when they moved to France in 2000, she fell in love with France ! While their home has been Valbonne where she has been very invested in the local community, their second home is in Philippe's homeland Savoir. Building and renovating the chalet has been a past time for over 15 years which has been balanced out by enjoying the mountains and all that they offer in every season. Sharing her home and food is one of her passions. You'll appreciate her natural, friendly and energetic character and 'bee' warned, she can talk your ear off about bees !
Suzie will be co-hosting with her good friend Tina who will be helping particularly with the meal preparation. Tina is a nature-loving mother of 4, with a great sense of humour who has an amazing ability in the kitchen (and the garden!).
Elkie is a focused, caring & inspiring yoga teacher with a wonderful sense of fun. After many years practicing various styles of yoga as a hobby, she became certified in India & has brought all these qualities along with her innate serenity to her yoga training & yoga classes. As a mother & business entrepreneur, yoga has always been her go-to, the foundation that keeps her healthy on a physical & mental level, nurturing her everyday well-being.
Her passion for this holistic ancient practice & the well being of her students is felt in every session. She currently runs yoga classes for individuals & small groups of all levels on the Cote D'Azur, where she has lived for the last 20 years.
