When the founders of Ayuryoga came across an old chapel near Gent, they knew they had found the perfect spot for their wellness center.

They wished to create an exceptional environment, reflecting the yogic and ayurvedic philosophies. Both of these put an emphasis on leading a balanced life, in harmony with nature.

We applied that philosophy throughout every space and in every detail, from materiality to lighting.

Engaging in close collaboration with the Ayuryoga team, we created a uniquely immersive and soothing experience infused throughout all spaces, from the restaurant bar and the hotel rooms to the relaxation pool for the perfect spa experience.

Ayuryoga wellness center offers an exclusive yoga room inside the chapel nave, a vegetarian restaurant, a spa center with a relaxing pool, sauna & hammam and five unique hotel rooms, inspired by the five ayurvedic seasons.
