Celebrate the return of spring during a weekend of yoga and fun !
Spring symbolises new beginnings, so it is the perfect time to start something different.
Imagine staying in a beautiful family chateau, surrounded by nature in the Ardennes.
In addition to great yoga twice a day with our amazing teacher Julia, you will find out more about essential oils during a workshop and enjoy healthy delicious vegetarian meals prepared with love by Stephanie from Mindfoodness. You will also experience deep relaxation during a sound bath session.
And there’ll still be plenty of time to take walks in the amazing surroundings, paddle board on the pond (in which you can swim if you are brave!), play tennis... or just sit around, do nothing and enjoy.
It will be a weekend just for you, about taking care of yourself and about feeling good. It will be a break from your everyday life and you’ll come back feeling happy and refreshed.
The yoga classes will be accessible for beginners but also recommended for experienced yogis who would like to dive deeper into their practice for a weekend.

Retreat in English & French
Julia’s yoga journey started in 2001 at an artist residency in Cyprus where a friend taught her a few sun salutations between sessions in the art studio. From then on, she continued to cultivate her home practice, taking classes and attending workshops. Julia received her 200h Vinyasa yoga teacher training certification from Yoga Moves in Utrecht, where she also completed a restorative yoga training with Lizzie Lasater. After becoming a full-time yoga teacher, Julia launched herself into an advanced teacher training (300h) with Jason Crandell at Triyoga in London in 2018.
In all of her yoga classes, there are three key principles she wants to transmit to her students. The first is to create a slower-paced flow for students to have both space and time to breathe fully throughout the duration of the yoga practice. The second is to work towards physical, mental and emotional balance. She aims to create yoga sequences that are well-rounded, encourage an even distribution of effort and sensation in poses, and promote an equilibrium between body and mind. A balanced yoga practice is a sustainable practice. The third key principle is to allow students to develop an awareness of the physical intelligence of their own bodies, building strength, flexibility and confidence.
Catering by Mindfoodness
I am Stéphanie Chenard, a French nomad girl who spent the last decade in Brussels. During the past few years, I've become more and more interested in body and mind alignment through all kinds of yoga (Iyengar, Kundalini, Vinyasa), meditation, sport and focus particularly on cooking and nutrition.
After promoting gastronomic restaurant and organic places, I started to get my hands dirty in a kitchen, cooking for alternative and pop-up projects. I then launched a cooperative project, where I implemented and ran a 100% organic restaurant.
Throughout the years, I have committed myself into conscious food, trying to be as sustainable as possible (zero waste, local, organic, seasonal and fresh), healthy (homemade, balanced, nutritious) in order to nurture the body as well as the mind. Mindful eating also implies taking time to decouple the pleasure of senses. While eating together in a group, it also helps to create a sense of community and sharing.
