Yoga Retreat, South India

September 2019

Retreat Overview

Sipping mint tea beside the beach as the setting sun slowly sinks behind gently swaying palms, you can feel the warmth of the breeze, your on the coast of south west India......

.......it’s the end of an incredible day that began with a nourishing yoga practice, you’ve experienced the exotic pulse, uplifting energy, fragrant spices, and magnificent chaos of the Indian Quarter of Pondicherry.

You laugh with new friends, sharing your adventures from the maze- like markets, offering everything from hand-crafted jewellery, beautiful sari materials to carved deities - and all things in between!

Gazing on the magnificent India Ocean you can hardly believe that, at last, you’re here.......dining under the Indian stars.

Ah.......the sights, sounds, smells and colours of India! Let me tell you more.....

This unmissable retreat was specifically designed for YOU to combine your love of all things Yoga with a life-expanding travel experience in its birth place.

There’s something about the magical energy of India that nourishes the soul. India will capture your heart, delight your senses..... it’s just that kinda place.

Our yoga retreat will leave its stamp on your way of thinking and being long after you leave.....it’s just that kinda retreat.

Nearly forgot to mention you’ll be eating totally organic vegan/vegetarian food here, and we’ll be visiting the Matrimandir and Sri Aurobindo Ashram. We’ll also spend a few nights in Tiruvannaamalai.......visiting Sri Raman’s Ashram is a must on this trip.
