Yoga and Self-Acutalisation

About us

Practices such as yoga, meditation and pranayama open up new doors to (re)connect with yourself and your environment.

On this retreat you will find support during your journey of self-actualisation. In ‘digging deeper seminars’ we will explore a variety of relevant questions and subjects that young adults are faced with; getting to know yourself, loving yourself, trust, autonomy,  self-image, family-relations, choices and external expectations, letting go and how spirituality is interconnected with all these matters. There will also be lots of time for fun, food, laughing, games, enjoying the French countryside through hiking or swimming in the lake below the compound, and other relaxing and recreation activities. It will be a week of joy, connection and growth! I am looking forward to welcome you!
