"Resourcing stay at Akasha"

In brief: Excellent yoga, deep meditation, amazing organic food and great walks. Spring sun and lots of light outside. Surrounded by kind people. What else ? :-)

"Great experience with very nice people"

The yoga and meditation sessions were really great. I also very much appreciated the interesting discussions with the other participants.

The food was healthy and delicious, mainly with vegetables from the garden.

An enriching experience with a wonderful team. To be recommended!

I was my first retreat, my first yoga session. :)

I enjoyed every moment, since waking up with the gong, the classes, the food, being in nature, Sophie and Surya are very welcoming as well as the volunteers.

I never had an experience like this, I wanted to discover more about spirituality and I sure did! :)

"Akasha is really space for our souls"

Perfect match of place, food, nature, energy, people, souls and a lots of love, retreat for the body, mind and soul.

I highly recommend it to everyone, as the vibrating energy in this place will raise your spirit, calm your mind and gently touch every cell of your body

"I had a really great time"

I felt really welcomed and felt in peace. The programme is well balanced between free time and yoga practice. Classes were very adapted to the different moments of the weekend and i was felt it was the right practice for the actual moment. Food was delicious! I became addicted to the amazing bread they do.

The location is also very nice, it’s possible to take a walk outside and enjoy nature.

I will definitely return :-)

This yoga retreat really calmed me down and I could take a break from my daily life. It's a beautiful old house with a fireplace, you feel comfortable right now.

The team is just amazing, everyone is so lovely, nice and has an open heart.

They really welcome you with open arms!!!

I never found a place like this.

I also could experience some new things like chanting, sound healing and meditation.

This place is great to look into yourself.

I'm happy and thankful for this opportunity and experience! And hope to be back one day! Thank you!!!

Love, Laura

The place and the silence were great. The morning sessions (yoga and meditation) were always very good. The rhythm suited me perfectly (not very fast, and not very slow). The instructors (Sophie and Rianne) were clearly professional and I enjoyed the sessions with them. The food was good and the smell of the fresh-baked bread every morning was the best part here :)

"Great experience! Will do it again. "

I enjoyed almost every part of the trip. I met great people, great teachers and experienced a lot of things. The house and the place are very quiet, and everyone was very nice. I recommend this trip if you need to take a break from daily life and work. I had a great massage too!

"Home away from home"

Some of the most genuine and caring people you’ll meet! Great yoga classes and workshops. Sound healing was a very special experience and so was Rianne’s massage.

Matteo’s cooking was full of love and eating together everyday made us feel like family.

The town is also very nice, quiet and green.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone and I’ll be back :)

from Belgium, September 2019

This was the first yoga/meditation retreat that I ever undertook and it largely met my expectations. Set in the beautiful Belgian countryside, I was welcomed into this house of calm and serenity with smiles, tasty vegetarian meals, calming yoga sessions in the morning and spiritual meditation in the afternoon. It was exactly what I needed to get out of a too hectic lifestyle in the city. At the Akasha retreat center, there is less pollution, less stress and more space for one to focus on self love and inner healing. Sophie and Surya are a harmonious duo that allow you to be yourself and adapt their offer to your needs. There were also two kind hearted and very enthusiastic volunteers, John and Sara, who helped cook the meals and made me feel very pampered.

All in all, I recommend this séjour to anyone out there looking for a beacon of calm and acceptance.

"A nice little retreat house in nature"

Everybody was nice and friendly, the house is beautiful. The surrounding area is very great and green. It was quite peaceful. Interesting yoga classes and workshops.


from Netherlands, September 2019

"Great place"

Yoga classes and workshops were inspiring. I especially really enjoyed the soundjourney/healing. Crew, volunteers and guests all kind people. Great vegetarian food. Depending on the weather we could eat outside or light up the fireplace inside in the evening. Big dormitory, very dark and silent in the night. Clean place. Nice yoga room. Bikes to borrow for free. I would visit again.

"Calming Experience at Akasha"

I like the classes, the place, the food, and the people I met there. Matteo, Maggie, Sophie and Surya.

"Hidden yogic gem in beautiful natural surroundings"

Beautiful historical place in beautiful rural surroundings. Natural (often organic) veggie food is prepared fresh 3 times a day and delicious (many thanks to amazing people like herborist/ gardener Louis and occasional cooks Matteo, Floris and Rianna:) Yoga and meditation classes are authentic, informative and nice. If you want to relax, do some yoga and connect with nature, this is The place to be.

"Overall impression 7 /10"

Thank you for yoga practices, the calm rhythm of both of them (that I attended) was just what I needed and for a badminton game!

"Good start, but there is still a long way to go "

The house and the surroundings are lovely. It is a beautiful location with a lot of potential. You can go walking through the orchards and visit the monastery. There is plenty to do around there if you don't mind walking. Hopefully the facility will be investing in bikes for the guests to use. That would be a big help.

"Space and healing"

I had a wonderful time at Akasha. I really appreciated having space to just be, and time to reflect. The classes and workshops were all different and interesting, and opened me up to experiencing new things. It was exactly what I needed.

"An amazing experience for my first yoga retreat"

The focus on relaxation, getting more aware and presence of oneself.

Definitely a must-go if you live in or around Belgium and maintain a stressful way of life: It does the trick!

"Just what I needed"

My experience honestly exceeded my expectations:-))...Stunning location, amazing house with such a calm and positive atmosphere, staff were so welcoming and nurturing but at the same time, sensitive to your retreat needs...do you want to be silent or social ?..they allowed you the space to just BE. Workshops and classes were excellent. Food was delicious, nutritious and plentiful:-))).. My group of fellow retreaters were so lovely ..we merged so well together ..what a bonus !!!..thank you Xx..

"Perfect place to regain yourself "

As soon as I stepped out of the car I felt the calmness. The building was beautiful and the fireplace in the lounge was a great touch. The volunteers were friendly and helpful and it was so perfect to connect with others. I had a truly wonderful time and wish I could of stayed for longer. I will definitely be back 😊

"Ik wou dat ik langer kon blijven"

Mooie landelijke omgeving om te wandelen,

Abdij is goed gerestoreerd en gezellige living met haardvuur,

Zowel diepzinnige als luchtige gesprekken met andere deelnemers en vrijwilligers gehad. De yoga, meditatie, chanting en andere rituelen waren op niveau en verrijkend voor mind, body en soul.

Vrijwilligers waren super behulpzaam. Ik voel me nu terug ontspannen en meer in mijn center na mijn verblijf van 4 dagen. Ik wou dat ik nog langer kon blijven.

"Aangenaam weg van alles"

De ongedwongen, familiale sfeer, de internationale vrijwilligers, de hete buitendouche en composttoilet, het aanbod om je op te pikken in station Tongeren

"Yoga en meditatie"

Ik ben er open in gegaan en ben gewend om voornamelijk met het fysieke stuk van yoga bezig te zijn ipv mentale stuk. De meditatie sessies waren dan ook een warm welkom voor mij. Erg leuk dat het elke dag een verrassing was wat voor workshop er in de middag zou zijn. De spontane stilte dag was echt iets nieuws voor mij maar prima om eens te ervaren.

"Mooie energie, zachtheid en liefde, verbondenheid"

Ze zeggen wat ze doen, en ze doen wat ze zeggen: eerlijk en openhartig, authentiek, professioneel. De huiselijke sfeer in het kasteeltje voelde als thuiskomen. In de meditatieruimte was het zalig vertoeven en de workshops waren afwisselend, diepgaand en op maat van elke yogabeoefenaar. De Soundhealing sessie was heerlijk. Er was met de warmhartige vrijwilligers een boeiende uitwisseling van creatief omgaan met vegetarisch/veganistisch koken. Ook het zelfgebakken zuurdesembrood was een bron van inspiratie om zelf weer aan de slag te gaan in de keuken thuis. We genoten tijdens het wandelen van mooie landschappen en van de rijpe kersen onderweg ;) We hadden graag wat langer gebleven. En we komen heel graag nog eens terug voor een cursus Ayurveda of een namiddag mantrazingen. Namaste!

"Exactement le lieu pour dire stop et revenir au sens"

Bonne alternance entre pratique physique méditation et chant.

Très bonne nourriture saine et du jardin, de bons lits du respect mutuel et pas de sensation de promiscuité excessive même en dortoir. un vrai coin du feu qui contraste avec la froideur initiale du lieu (ancien monastère). De belles expériences pleines de sens.

Akasha démarre juste. Petite équipe très motivée. A encourager.

"Gem in Belgium"

Great place to recharge your battery. The quality of the yoga, meditation and workshops is very good. Even as the food, beds and location. For me this was the perfect place to quit my job :).

"Una maravillosa experiencia "

El lugar es hermoso, limpio, en un ambiente de paz y naturaleza inigualables. Las comidas son deliciosas, variadas y abundantes. Las lecciones de meditación y yoga están muy bien guiadas; los instructores te enseñan prácticas según tus capacidades y necesidades. Fue mi primera vez en un retiro de yoga, una experiencia maravillosa, ojalá todos tuvieran oportunidad de hacerlo. Recomiendo 100% Akasha Retreat Center para realizarlo.


from Belgium, June 2019

De sfeer, het aanbod en de vrije momenten.


from Belgium, June 2019

"Highly recommend"

It's a space of non-judgment, where everyone feels welcome. Learned a lot during the workshops and from the discussions with the volunteers. I could really rest and enjoy. The location is beautiful and super clean, food was plenty, homemade and nutritious. Since it's a retreat where anybody can come at any time, and where most of the personnel is volunteers, every time can be a different experience depending on the people staying at that moment. In my case, I had a lovely staying and will surely come back in the future.

"Fijne plek om tot rust te komen"

Akasha heeft net zijn deuren geopend en weten er nu al een een fijne plek van te maken waar je helemaal tot rust kunt komen. Lieve mensen, een afwisselend programma en heerlijk eten. Kortom het was fijn.

Brigitte Blackburn

Le cadre - calme & reposant. Super beau temps!

Grande chambre et salle de bains a trois (on etait que deux) et lit confortable.

Super workshop de sound/ mantra le Samedi 20 Avril Avec Surya et la volontaire Allemande qui avait une tres belle voix.

Superbe balade en silence le Dimanche de Paques avec petite session de meditation en regardant le lever du soleil.

Feu de bois en plein air tres sympa pour Paques.

La prof de yoga Lundi 22 Avril etait excellente.

Nourriture etait en general tres bonne. Le chef volontaire Italien etait tres passione! Bon pain fait maison

"Good quality program and nice place "

The program and session were of great quality. I like especially the sound healing and 'no dimension' meditation. The program can change so not sure you will have the same but I believe all sessions were great! The place was very nice, wooden floor everywhere. Warm and comfortable bed, I appreciatef also bathroom where I can either take a shower or bath. From the place there is small path for nice walk in the field and wood. Good meeting with other people.

"Rust en warmte"

Mijn dochter en ik hadden een heel fijne en warme tijd in Akasha Retreat Center. We waren de eerste gasten en dat voelde wel bijzonder. De workshops waren heel fijn en aangepast aan onze vragen en interesses. Het eten was super lekker. De gesprekken over yoga, meditatie, reizen, (stilte)retreats, klank,... waren erg boeiend. We genoten ook van de vrije momenten met wandelingen in de omgeving of rustig babbelen, lezen of breien/haken bij het haardvuur. De individuele behandelingen waren intens. Akasha Retreat Center en Surya Maarten, Floris en Paulina stralen rust en een bijzondere sfeer uit. Een plek waar ik nog heel graag zal komen. Een absolute aanrader voor iedereen die houdt van stilte, verbinding, geborgenheid,...

"een bad van warmte en kundigheid"

Zo fijn om op een plek te komen waar je begeleid wordt om tot jezelf te komen. Een kundig team, een mooie plek en heerlijk eten. Ben als herboren naar huis gegaan en de retrait werpt nog steeds zijn vruchten af.
