More details about your experience at Le Vieux Temple.

The daily programme is inspired by one found in an Indian ashram or a Tibetan temple, where swamis and monks live immersed in meditation throughout the day.
The morning gong allows you to take advantage of the silence of dawn and meditate deeply with a calm mind, before the sun rises and society wakes up. The day is filled with continuous practice, leaving little time for entertainment, idleness or sightseeing.


There are courses that combine Yoga with hiking, surfing, dancing or local activities. These courses are relaxing and enjoyable. However, the depth of Yoga can only be experienced through a rigorous practice, supported by a disciplined mind. At Le Vieux Temple, we dedicate our day to it.

At first reading, you might think that the content is designed for advanced levels, for experienced yogis. In fact, this programme is accessible and beneficial to everyone, beginners and experts alike. It does not imply a strenuous practice, but rather a continuous practice. So that each day brings you closer to yourself, away from the distractions and hustle and bustle of the outside world. It is a real task to undertake, yet with a heart filled with lightness and kindness.


You will be living devoid of all responsibility. Your mind is free (of homework and to-do list) as you are guided on every step and it all flows smoothly.

Our retreats are perfectly suited for those who wish to discover Yoga in its fullest meaning, who wish to deepen their practice, as well as for those who would like to join a 10-day Vipassana course, but for the time being need a more accessible middle path.

Do not hesitate to write to us to clarify any doubts you may have, and we will be happy to answer them.
