Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Belgium.
Do you want to deepen your practice of yoga? Or have you never done yoga before but curious to start? If you need a break to reconnect with yourself, then join the Belgian Sampoorna team for a yoga weekend retreat at the beautiful Chateau Frandeux in the Ardennes. You will return recharged and rebalanced on all levels.
All rooms at Château Frandeux are simple but stylish and comfortably furnished and all have a washing stand. Seven rooms have access to their own sanitary facilities (shower and toilet), the remaining rooms share nine toilets and 10 showers. All beds are made on arrival and equipped with a set of towels.
There are single, double, and triple rooms with and without showers, so prices are according to the type of accommodation. Kids are welcome to join, they can sleep on extra comfortable stretchers in the parents sleeping room.
Twice-a-day, there will be Hatha yoga practice with breathing exercises, yoga postures, and deep relaxation. Suitable for all levels, beginners will receive special attention and advanced students will get the challenges they need to develop further. Special focus of the Hatha yoga sessions will be cleansing.
There will be guided and silent meditation sessions. You will use the precious hours of the early morning to move towards the state of highest concentration and creativity by turning the mind inwards.
The practice includes the repetitive singing of mantras and vibrational manifestations of aspects of the divine, a very effective and beautiful method to concentrate the mind and to purify the heart. You don’t need to be a good singer to experience the power of chanting.
Rhythm and melody are common to everything in nature and you will explore sound vibrations by both listening to and producing sound. You will experience the healthful effects of sound on all levels, physical, mental, and spiritual.
“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of theory”, but you must practice with proper understanding and purpose. During the lectures and discussions, you will explore the yogic scriptures and concepts.
