  • I highly recommend the 2 to 4 week long Yoga retreats at Hridaya-France. The teachings and teachers are amazing, deep and very much connected to the Heart.  more »

  • My time at Longeval was difficult and emotional but extremely rewarding and eye opening. I did the 3-day silent meditation retreat in March 2019. I would recommend this to anyone trying to answer big questions in their life, and anyone who has been going through life at a ridiculous pace. The retreat is a good opportunity to slow down and reflect. Throughout the 3 days you will learn about meditation techniques and practice them extensively (not easy, especially the long periods of sitting). You will also have lectures on various topics regarding spirituality. You are not allowed to speak at all, nor have eye contact with anyone. There are no mirrors and no makeup or flashy clothes are permitted. The idea is to internalize yourself as much as possible. The food was ok, not delicious I would say, but I thought of it as just "a means to survive" and perhaps even a detox. It's all vegetarian, simple food. No desserts, no juices/teas/coffees, fruits, snacks etc. although you are allowed to bring whatever you want to the retreat, and they have a small store with some items you can purchase. The premises were fairly clean but I would recommend bringing indoor slippers to walk around as your socks can still get quite dirty even though no shoes are allowed inside. Overall this experience was much better than I expected and I highly recommend it to anyone considering taking the leap. The staff are all lovely people who make the world a better place
  • My experience at Hridaya Yoga France was absolutely amazing. Great people - staff, teachers and karma yogis. Meditative yoga classes, deep meditations and meaningful lectures. Beautiful castle, peaceful nature, deliciosus vegan food and diverse evening program like bajans, transfiguration, heart circle, spiritual movies, ecstatic dance,... I feel like home and very happy to be here.
