Visit Us in the Heart of France

Hridaya Yoga France’s home is a lovingly restored castle nestled in the beautiful Beaujolais countryside. It sits on 7 hectares in the heart of Longeval Forest, affording stunning views of the Azergues Valley and access to numerous hiking trails.

The property features sunlit yoga and meditations halls, comfortable accommodations, a vegetarian restaurant, and expansive permaculture gardens.

This atmosphere of serenity and stillness is ideal for going inside yourself to experience the depths of yoga. We invite you to join us for our year-round program of silent meditation retreats, yoga modules, workshops, volunteering, and drop-in meditations and Hatha Yoga classes. Our center offers you the chance to integrate the teachings off the mat by experiencing day-to-day life in a vibrant community of people dedicated to living with an Open Heart. Join us!
