Program

Jennifer and Ben fell in love with Radhadesh during their first visit and they knew right away that they wanted to share this place with their retreatants. The castle, the energy and community, the food, and even the cows that are living a peaceful life on the campus create a joyful and peaceful atmosphere that is as unique as it is rejuvenating.

Join them for mindful walks in the forest, Yoga Foundations classes in the morning, and Yin and Restorative, yoga Nidra and soundbath in the evening. There will also be kirtan (sacred chanting) every evening, as is customary in the castle, and you will learn more about Bhakti yoga, or the yoga of devotion.

Level:

This retreat is open for absolute beginners as well as experienced practitioners who would like to deepen their understanding about the foundations of yoga.
