Want to deepen your practice of yoga?
Never done yoga before but curious to start?
Need a break to reconnect with yourself?
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!
On the retreat program:
• Hatha Yoga – cleansing of body and
Twice-a-day 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.
• Meditation – cleansing of the mental
Guided and silent meditation. We will use the precious hours
of the early morning to move towards the state of highest
concentration and creativity by turning the mind inwards.
• Mantra Chanting – cleansing of emotional
and energy system:
Repetitive singing of mantras, 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
• Nada Yoga (Yoga of sound) – cleansing
of the energy system:
Rhythm and melody is common to everything in nature, and we
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.
• Jnana Yoga (Yoga philosophy) – cleansing
of the intellectual system:
“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of theory”
but we must practice with proper understanding and purpose.
During the lectures and discussions we will explore the yogic
scriptures and concepts.
• Optional (not included in the price):
Personal treatments (massage, shiatsu, sound massage).
