Our philosophy


A forest full of joy, peaceful atmosphere, light and spirituality , this is the image evoked by Tapovan, where sages of India practiced their yoga. This symbolical name illustrates the ideal towards which we aim at.


Tapovan desires to help people progress towards a greater well-being physically, mentally and spiritually and move towards an inner balance, thus finding a greater understanding of themselves.


Tapovan took its inspiration from Nalanda and Takshashila, ancient universities of antic India, where studies not only developed the intellect but also sensibility, emotions, creativity, psychological and spiritual openness, to create an Open University of yoga and Ayurveda.


Our main activities include:

• Seminars and courses  (in Ayurveda, Ayurvedic massage, hatha yoga and many more) in Paris and Normandy.

• Ayurvedic retreats and ayurvedic massages in Paris and Normandy.

• International symposiums on Ayurveda, yoga, environment and ecology as well as literature, cinema and arts.


Today, Tapovan is recognized as the one of the most authentic centers in Europe to learn Ayurveda, Ayurvedic retreats and massages, hatha yoga, vegetarian cooking and much more.
