Prolong the summer with an Ardennes retreat!

A weekend retreat at Radhadesh in the Belgian Ardennes

From Friday 26 to Sunday 28 September 2014

Take a brief respite from daily life and enjoy the many facets of yoga, plus great vegetarian food, and the fresh air and beauty of the Ardennes at Radhadesh (Château de Petite Somme) in Durbuy.

Attend the entire weekend for optimum benefit, or just join us when you can.

Non-participating partners and children sharing a room are welcome to spend the weekend enjoying the beauty and quiet of the surrounding forests and the charm of Durbuy, only 6 kms away, and to take meals in the restaurant at own expense. Please note that here is no childcare available, and children cannot attend group sessions.
