27th of  July to 3rd of August 2019

A very exclusive Yoga gathering in the heart of France where you choose your personal program from no less than 9 different workshops every day! The festival is unique in its kind with only 50 like-minded participants ... 6 Yoga teachers ... 7 days of bliss... Everyone is welcome; whether you are a Yoga newbie or a well experienced yogi-yogini. Expect in-depth interactions, beautiful connections and unforgettable experiences.

Workshops

In the daily offer you will find: Dru Yoga, Yin Yoga, Hatha yoga, Tantra yoga, Vinyasa yoga and Raja yoga. But also Duo / acro yoga, Burn out yoga, Mantra chanting, Tai Chi, breath work, various meditations, ecstatic dance and creative activities in the art studio such as creating dreamcatchers, intuitive painting and mandela drawing.

A professional team of yoga instructors work closely together in order to move you in their group sessions synchronically from earthly to ever-refined energy. During the week they follow the 5 elements cycle from earth to water, fire, air and ether.
The workshops focus at the beginning of the week on grounding, coming home in your body, and awareness of the here and now. In the middle of the week the practice focusses on balancing of the energy body and healing energy, to move gradually at the end of the week towards the experience of pure love: opening your heart to the people and the world around you, to an experience of unity, ecstacy and bliss.

Yoga, a way of life

The festival will inspire you to live to your full potential and celebrate life, to fully relax and to experience total freedom in embracing your true self. The meditations and exercises aim to be fully present in the here and now and to be in closer contact with your own inner core of pure light and love. This is achieved through a variety of meditations, different Yoga forms, emotional bodywork, breathwork and other exercises. You experience first hand which yoga form fits you best and the strength of the different yoga forms all together.

Some feedback from previous participants

I will move after this week. Moving to a larger house. A larger temple, my straitjacket does not fit anymore. I travel back home more freely and much lighter and happier. Chris

I can not describe the gratitude that I feel in my heart after this week in a few words. So I just leave it for now and stay in silence. In light and love. Veerle


A more than welcome deepening of my life. A good feeling. A very good feeling! (And a little muscle pain) Erik


What you create here is beautiful, pure. Thank you for letting me come home here in your yoga bubble. From here I continue my way - with the insights, the energy, the love in my backpack. Hilde


A breath of fresh air, yoga and consciousness on such a beautifull domain, surrounded and carried by love. I flourish. I feel great! Willem
