Food, wine & welcoming people have always been an important part of Sally’s life – a natural hostess, friendly, personable with a contagious smile & a great sense of humor. She was previously a partner in a 16th century old Cotswold Inn & restaurant before moving to France & most recently, after studying wine, she moved to Bordeaux to create Château George 7 making it a destination for wine experiences.

 

She loves fitness, seeing it as fundamental to keeping her mind healthy too. So you can find her cooking up recipes to go with her wines, showing visitors around the vineyard, biking through the vines or joining Elkie’s online yoga classes during the recent lockdown.

 

“Come to Château George 7 for sunset yoga overlooking the vines followed by a glass of wine made from those vines. It’s special”

Elkie is a focused, caring & inspiring 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. 

''Be kind to yourself & then let your kindness flood the world.''
