Relaxing and inspiring Yoga, Ayurveda and Meditation Retreats in France.

To practice Yoga means to constantly learn and grow. When you are busy with every day things, such as your job and your household you easily lose sight of this. Therefore, every once in a while, you need to withdraw yourself from this hasty life to be with like-minded people and to reconnect with yourself. Centre Lothlorien in France offers all the elements that are required. There is an abundance of nature, inspirational sights and peacefulness.

For Whom?

Yoga is for everyone. The wisdom of Yoga is endless so there is always more to learn no matter how much experience you have with Yoga. Especially if you have learned Yoga in a Western country, most of the key principles have not been taught. In our retreats we teach Indian Classical Yoga. By teaching the fundamental principles of Yoga, everyone can benefit, no matter your experience, age, gender, culture of physical capabilities.

Children Theme Weeks

Did you know that at Centre Lothlorien children’s theme weeks are organized in July and August? The program is for children from 5 to 12 and runs synchronously with the program of the adults. While you join the yoga course, they go on an adventure and play in and with the nature. Don’t forget to register your child!

Centre Lothlorien

The retreats take place at Centre Lothlorien a French estate in the Grand-Est, which is reachable within a day by car, from most West-European countries. At the center you will find everything that nature has to offer. The terrain with a length of 2 kilometers holds a creek, two lakes, rock formations, forest, gardens, hills and fields. All the walking paths on the terrain itself are quiet, beautiful and inspirational. The terrain is surrounded by forest where you can walk for hours without meeting a soul.


Centre Lothlorien has a lot of different options for your accommodation. The most luxury is a room in the Chateau. If you prefer to stay independent you can choose between one of the apartments, holiday houses or log cabins. Furthermore, there is a large green campsite where you can stay with your tent, camping car or caravan. There is even an isolated retreat house in the forest and a hobbit hole.
Meals are provided at the center, but you can also choose to prepare your own meal at your accommodation of choice or at the public facilities.
For your convenience we have designed a few packages, but you can create your own package as you like. Look at the website of Centre Lothlorien for more information.

Indian Classical Yoga

All the retreats are taught with the knowledge from ancient Indian traditions. We balance practical and theoretical activities and teach in such a way that you can implement what you learn in your own life.

All the today’s day Yoga styles are derived from traditional Yoga. Therefore, you will find different styles back in our teachings. The Asana practice is based on Hatha Yoga postures. A lot of the postures are done in flow, similar as Ashtanga, Vini yoga or Vinyasa. Our practical activities include Pranayama and Meditation.

In our group-sessions, lectures and workshops we provide you with tools for self-development and help you how to deal with life situations. This all comes from the Yoga philosophy. The wisdom is based on the Yoga Sutra’s of Patanjali, but also other Vedic traditions such as Samkhya and Vedanta.

One of the most important aspects in Yoga, which is often forgotten, is food. In our programs we introduce the knowledge of Ayurveda, which has at its core how to live a balanced life, how to become and stay healthy and give your body what it requires.

I liked all the useful lessons (life lessons) from Pinky and also the experiences she gave us. I love that that the class is not only theory but also direct application of what we learn. Keep going! I will talk about the good things and peace we experience here to my family & friends. Even my future baby was calmer in my belly. You brought peace to him too! Thank you.
Yoga and walking meditation week 2021

I had a wonderful week where I got some of the answers I was looking for. Great introduction course to Yoga. I will learn more about this and start practicing. Of course I was hoping for Asana classes outside, that would have been ultimate, but doing it in the Yoga room was fine too. Great food, great people. I might come back to visit you guys and make some music. The meditation walks would have been more elaborate if there was good weather, but, then again, nicely solved.

Thank you Richard for the wonderful 5 days of Ayurveda Awareness. I learned a lot about eating for health and happiness. I particularly liked the way you were able to condence such a vast subject into bite size chews. The course was well structured and left time for questions, discussions and reflection. You also allowed time for activities to break down the theory e.g. herb walk and the vegetable curry preparation. It was a big advantage that we were able to do the entire course under the sun and in front of the lake! I would definitely recommend this course. Thank you!

I took a course on Ayurveda. What particularly appealed to me was the background of Ayurveda. More knowledge about diet and lifestyle affecting your health and how well you feel. I was surprised that Ayurveda gives a complete picture of a balanced lifestyle.
