Come and join Japjeet Rajbir Kaur Khalsa in this yoga retreat weekend getaway set in the village of Pellenberg in Belgium. Balance, harmony, and ease are the keywords for this weekend. This workshop is suitable for total beginners, as well as people with experience in either Kundalini yoga or meditation, and is open to both men and women of all ages and backgrounds. Take this much-deserved opportunity to nurture yourself through precious moments of reflection and contemplation.
During this retreat, you will be accommodated at Villa Varia in either a shared yurt, yoga room, or double room. This villa is situated in a beautiful natural reserve close to the Pellenberg Hospital, but is at the same time easily accessible from Leuven and Tienen. The energetic place which has come to exist here is described by others as a home, an oasis, and a place to find peace.
This place has come into existence very organically both through the cooperation with Japjeet, who runs a three-day retreat every four to six weeks, and through the Kundalini yoga level one training ran by Hari Krishan Singh.
You can choose between accommodation in yurt or yoga room, case in which you have to bring your own towels, bedding, and mattress, or accommodation in shared room, case in which the towels, bedding, and mattress are included.
In this retreat, you will be working on bringing balance and harmony between different sets of polarities namely inside and outside, self and other, microcosm and macrocosm, individual consciousness and universal consciousness, body, mind, and soul, sun and moon, yin and yang, day and night, male and female energy, rejuvenation and relaxation, exercise and rest, doing and being, giving and receiving, and pursuing and allowing to be.
All these points will be explored and targeted so that you can find balance in the rhythm of life and be deeply at ease. The tools you will be using for this re-balancing work are Kundalini yoga and meditation, mantra chanting, Yoga Nidra, breath walks, time spent outside in nature, reflection, contemplation, and organic food and recipes from the yogic and Ayurvedic tradition. The program will be held daily from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Japjeet will also share knowledge on how nature can nurture you and how you can nurture nature in return, and on how this can be done in a respectful interplay from which both you and mother earth may benefit. She will provide you information on natural health care and share recipes for making your own cleaning and body-care products. This way, you can reduce toxic effects on your and your family’s systems while reducing your environmental impact.
This retreat will take place in Pellenberg, Belgium. Pellenberg is a small town located in the western-most part of the municipality of Lubbeek, in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant.
All three daily meals are included in this retreat. Each day, you will be served vegan, vegetarian, organic, and gluten-free meals made with fresh ingredients. You will also be served tea and snacks such as fruit, nuts, and homemade cakes. Prabhu Anand Kaur, the host of Villa Varia, is a professional cook. If there are any allergies or food intolerance, you can let her know well in advance. Bringing or preparing your own food in the villa is not allowed.
