3rd - 11th August 2024, Chateau de Jambville near Paris.


All you need to prepare
for the European Yoga Festival

Plan for the weather

Although this area of France is often hot in the daytime, it can get cold at night. Be sure to bring warm clothes and shawls/blankets. Also bring rain gear, so that you can still enjoy the festival if it rains. Don’t forget a plastic groundsheet to protect your mat from the dew during early morning yoga and meditation.

Essentials to bring

Bring a plate, bowl, cutlery, cups for both hot and cold beverages. We sell talis (traditional Indian stainless steel plates) on site but bring your won bowl for the solstice soup breakfast.

For Sadhana, Workshops, Langar, White Tantric Yoga®

For yoga practice, bring a yoga mat, rug, or sheepskin. A plastic groundsheet can be useful to protect from damp or dew during early morning meditation. Don’t forget blankets and shawls for warmth. Wear layered clothing and comfortable shoes as you’ll be moving around and the location is spacious.

Please refrain from taking on site

Avoid bringing drugs, alcohol, cigarettes/vapes, or any flammable items like candles, incense, lighters, and matches. Also, refrain from bringing meat, pets/animals, aerosol sprays, and disposable plates and cups. Limit your electronic devices as there are few outlets for charging. Keep valuables to a minimum as there’s no safe place to store them.

Mobiles and Wifi

Disconnecting from digital devices can enhance your inner journey.

If necessary, the on-site wifi is reliable and free of charge. We’ve also set up a mobile charging station near the Info Booth at the centre of the festival during opening hours. Avoid charging devices outside these hours or in unsupervised areas within the camp.


There is a first aid post and a Crisis Intervention Team located in the castle.

Emergency hotlines for security first aid will be added soon.
