The Emaho! Yoga Retreats team fell in love with Radhadesh during their first visit and they knew right away that they wanted to share this place with the 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.

You can chose between a single bed in a shared double room or a single room, both with private bathroom, located in the Radhadesh Retreat Center. The yoga shala is also located in the same building on the upper floor.

Program

Join Emaho! Yoga Retreats for mindful walks in the forest, intensive Vinyasa Flow yoga and meditation sessions in the morning, and Yin and Restorative yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Soundbath in the evening. There will also be Kirtan (sacred chanting) and meditation every evening, as is customary in the castle, and you will learn more about Bhakti yoga, or the yoga of devotion.
