Lodging at Hridaya Yoga France retreat center in a beautiful chateau surrounded by an immense forest.


This is a holistic course that creates the conditions for the revelation of your real nature, the spiritual heart. It is a life-changing journey in which important yoga topics are introduced in both a practical and theoretical way.

The practice of Hatha yoga provides an intimate inner knowledge of the physical body, bio-energies, and chakras (energy centers), as well as of your ultimate nature. A contemplative attitude and an awareness of the spiritual heart is an important part of the practice.

In this immersive retreat, a typical day of practice includes:

  • 1 hour of meditation (optional)
  • 4 hours of Hatha yoga practice (asana and pranayama)
  • 2-hour lecture
  • Mini-lectures on purification techniques and meditation practices

You will learn about

  • Hridaya Hatha yoga principles and the stages of performing an asana
  • Both the practice and the symbolic significance of asanas, yogic techniques, and warm-up exercises
  • The yogic system of chakras
  • Nadis (subtle energy channels), the subtle bodies, and the polarity of energy
  • Ramana Maharshi‘s self-Inquiry meditation
  • The infinite power of the spiritual heart
  • Yogic purification techniques
  • Cultivating proper attitudes for a life lived from the heart
  • Pranayama - the control of the energies through the breath
