The house is recently, lovingly renovated with 5 ensuite bedrooms either with stunning views of the gardens or the natural park. All the rooms have big door windows so that nature can be enjoyed to its fullest.

The house is refurbished with a barefoot luxury  & in line with Yogaion's sustainable ethics, the house  get's all its warm water by solar power and heating comes from an amazing masonry stove heating up the whole place if needed.

All the food during the Yoga retreats is local & organic coming either straight from  the organic farms down the road or from the farmers market. This means that most of the waste is biodegradable and for any other waste there will be a full on recycling program.

We will be learning how to cook sustainably with healthy plantbased, organic & local produce, mindfully eating & transforming foods through fermentation. Not forgetting the most important components: deliciousness, sharing & joy.
