Yoga & Meditation Retreat: Body, Mind and Heart


with Elise Le Goff-Maes & Jean-Jacques Mathieu
May 1 / 6:00 AM - May 5 / 6:00 AM

Our 3 day meditation and yoga retreat is the perfect opportunity to experience the harmonious combination of these two practices and to explore their benefits in an exceptional environment.


We will offer all level yoga sessions, alternating between gentle relaxing yoga and more dynamic and energizing practice. Our approach to meditation is gradual and structured and will enable you to explore central Buddhist themes such as presence, gentleness, precision or the role of emotions.


You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery around Dechen Choling, moments of quiet restful space as well as our rich community life.


Jean Jacques Matthieu, your Shambhala Buddhism teacher and meditation instructor, and Elise Le Goff, your yoga teacher, will welcome you and guide you during these three days in a complete and unique experience.
