Yoga Immersion in the beautiful Ardennes

Join us again this spring for a long weekend (4 days) of yoga and inventive gourmet vegetarian cuisine in the serene nature of the Belgium Ardennes. This Spring our Yoga, Food & Nature retreat will take place, for the third time, in Radhadesh – a spiritual community in the heart of the Ardennes near the picturesque town of Durbuy.
During these 4 days of transformation you’ll practice in depth yoga each day with Asaf Hacmon. You’ll have a chance to de-tox by eating pure and delicious food prepared by our chef Galit Hahn, made from local farm produce – all wheat-free, sugar-free, and cow-milk free. All that while finding peace in the beauty and serenity of the Ardennes.
Our yoga program
Each day we’ll have two long yoga classes – a 3 hours morning asana class which is active and dynamic, and a 2 hours afternoon restorative asana and pranayama class. The practice is suitable for all levels.
Each day we will go deeper into different yoga subjects in a gradual manner.
Our program is holistic and include many facets of yoga such as philosophy, pranayama, chanting and meditation.
Our food program

In the evening you will be served hearty cooked dinners inspired by Ayurvedic cooking. Each evening Galit will give evening talks on various topics of healthy cooking and eating.
