In the Balance – join us for a yoga & nature retreat in Durbuy 7-9 May!

Discover and maintain your own healthy balance. A weekend of yoga and nature, with delicious organic vegetarian food.

when:  Friday, 7 May, 12:30 pm – Sunday 9 May 2021, 6 pm

where: “Jardin Prangeleu”, 6941 Villers-Sainte-Gertrude, Durbuy, Belgium 

Health is really about balance, at all levels: physical, physiological and mental.

Losing our balance can trip us up, literally or figuratively. Our physiological systems tick out of sync and our minds can go into overdrive. If we’re in balance, we feel healthy, harmonious and ready to face the world.

We invite you to find your own balance, with a beneficial mix of yoga, excursions into nature, time to relax and some delicious, home-made organic vegetarian food. You will spend two and a half days as part of a small group (max. 5 people, safety measures guaranteed*), in a beautiful old farmhouse with a big, wild, permaculture garden, in the bucolic region of Durbuy, just south of Liège.

We will explore the concept of balance in health and nature, and the links between a healthy planet and our own health, in practice and – a tiny bit – of theory and philosphy.

Who are we?

Nina Klein is a yoga teacher and certified yoga therapist, who will share a “hit-list” of exercises for balance, so you will gain a practical routine you can easily integrate into your daily life. This draws not only on yoga, but also mindfulness, massage (do-in) and healing touch (jin shin jyutsu). Nina will introduce you to yoga philosophy and the latest scientific findings which corroborate the relevance of balance for planetary and personal health. Nina is certified in biodiversity and ecosystem studies (Bournemouth University, UK), takes her inspiration from the Global Ecovillage Network and is actively engaged in the Transition Network.

Alastair Penny, a gardener, beekeeper and enthusiastic cook, with a keen interest in permaculture will accompany you to explore the principle of balance in nature and the importance of our relationships to nature and to the food we eat.
