In the Balance – join us for a weekend seminar at “Jardin Prangeleu”!

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

when: 30 November – 1 December 2019

where: “Jardin Prangeleu”, 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 synch 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 exercises, massage and meditation, as well as excursions into nature and some delicious, home-made organic food. You will spend two days as part of a small group (max. 10 people), in a beautiful old farmhouse with a wild, permaculture garden, in the bucolic region of Durbuy, just south of Liège.

Who are we?

Paulette and Nina are both yoga teachers and certified yoga therapists, 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, shiatsu) and healing touch (jin shin jyutsu).

We’ll also examine the principle of balance in nature and the importance of our relationships to nature and to the food we eat, with help from Alastair, a gardener, beekeeper and enthusiastic cook, with a keen interest in permaculture and nature.

If you wish to work on specific health issues, you can also book an additional, individual session with Paulette or Nina, to receive a tailor-made yoga session for health that you can practise at home.
