Yoga Retreat in Budapest, 6-9 May

How do we find nourishment in our urban environments?


Come with us to Budapest where we will 
explore ways we can nourish body, mind, heart and soul 
as we discover this vibrant and ancient city in the heart of Europe. 

We will start the day with tonic morning yoga classes in the lively quarter of Pest near Margaret Bridge. We'll then head out to explore this beautiful and dynamic city, returning the studio to finish our busy day with a restorative or candle-light 'chill-out' yoga practice.


We will plunge into the soothing water of the ancient Turkish baths, discover the spacious Buda Castle area through a unique meditative walking experience, and of course, enjoy the various culinary delights the town offers (including fine pastry).


Moving around and through our environment 

will be an integrated part of our discovery.


In addition to walking meditation, we plan to practice outdoors on the gorgeous Margaret island if the weather allows, and bike along Danube river, or jump on a tram as we savour the city’s view.



This weekend will begin with an evening yoga practice on May 6th and include a morning practice on May 9th. Conducted in English, and French as needed, our program will allow free time for you to discover other parts of the city, or different nourishments if you wish (like the fun and lively "ruin bars" in Pest). 


This is a non-residential workshop, and you will need to organise your own accommodation. We have a list of some places to stay in Budapest, and there are plenty of airbnb's, hotels and hostels nearby and you will find numerous restaurants and cafés throughout the city for your culinary delight.The yoga studio we will be meeting at is at 1136 Budapest, Tàtra utca 5/B.
