Emaho! Retreats proudly invite you to their first yoga retreat at Radhadesh, in the Ardennes region of Belgium. Located in the Chateau de la Petite Somme, surrounded by unspoiled flora and fauna and long stretches of forest and countryside, this is a wondrous place to accomplish one’s spiritual practice (Sadhana). Join them for mindful walks in the forest, intensive Jivamukti Yoga sessions in the morning, and meditation, Yin & Restorative yoga in the evening. There will also be Kirtan (sacred chanting) every evening, as is customary in the castle.
