    You will stay in a basic double room at Beach Paradise Ayurveda Beach Resort. The room features shower, fan, attached bathroom, private entrance, tile floor, and mosquito net.

    According to yoga, health is not just a mere absence of disease, but a positive feeling of well-being in the mind, body, and soul. Long-term yoga users in the United States have reported musculoskeletal and mental health improvements, as well as reduced symptoms of asthma in asthmatic.

    There is evidence which suggests that regular yoga practice increases brain GABA levels and has been shown to improve mood and anxiety more than some other metabolically matched exercises, such as walking. Studies of the effects of yoga on heart disease suggest that yoga may reduce high blood pressure, improve symptoms of heart failure, enhance cardiac rehabilitation, and lower cardiovascular risk factors.

    Beach Paradise Ayurveda Beach Resort offers you this program to take your yoga practice a step beyond the regular physical exercise. Beach Paradise Ayurveda Beach Resort has a resident yoga master who is highly experienced in the monastic traditions of Hatha yoga. He will guide you through the journey of yoga and meditation to discover the potential of your body and mind.

    Both theoretical and practical lessons will take you through the basic concepts of breathing and its effect on the body, and help you to understand how to tap into prana (universal energy) through stretching exercises, asanas (postures), pranayamas (breathing techniques), and meditation.

    This comprehensive set of asanas, pranayamas, and meditation techniques are designed in such a way that you will be able to continue practice at your own home and attain a certain mastery over body and mind.

    This retreat will take place in Alappey, India. Beach Paradise Ayurveda Beach Resort is surrounded with coconut palm, facing The Arabian Sea and Theeyaseril Pozhi (river-lake). The resort and its area is fortunated by green nature on one side and all backwaters, boarded by coconut trees, a natural habitat of many local birds. The other side of the resort is an open sunny beach carpeted with clear sand.

      Review by Melissa Webb from United Arab Emirates

      CONS Cons: The accommodation was below expectations, it was well below basic. Dirty. Such a shame, as my expectations were not met at all. The yoga was casual, not structured, not to standard, I would not recommend to anyone wanting to do a proper yoga retreat. Only one massage was included, but the website says daily, i had to pay extra for my second one. There were NO meditation sessions which was a big part of why I went.

      PROS Pros: The food was delicious and amazing. Simple, fresh, tasty. Thank you for that. The Tuktuk trip into town was good. The taxi to the airport was good. Staff were all friendly and did try where they could.

      Not a retreat

      CONS Cons: Food - no choice, very small portions and it came cold Facilities - absolutely nothing to do between the yoga sessions. Some ayurvedic treatments offered by at an expensive extra cost as well as some excursions. It was not a retreat - we were the only guests and they were not even expecting us!

      PROS Pros: Hotel directly on the beach

    • Review by Andrea from Seattle, USA

      "I spent four wonderful nights at this resort in December 2016. The staff, especially the manager Joseph, were so helpful and kind and accommodating, we felt utterly welcomed and comfortable there. A few examples: after mentioning casually that I had never tasted fresh coconut milk, we found Jose (a sweet staff member there) at the door of our room offering freshly-opened coconuts with straws inserted. Ever-conscious of the security of guests, Joseph made sure that only the most competent, trustworthy drivers were hired to take us around town (via tuk-tuk) or to the airport (via auto)... we really noticed the difference between them and the ones we hired for ourselves. Joseph also arranged for a one-night backwater houseboat cruise, which was wonderful in itself, as well as arranging for me to get a piece of jewelry fixed at an Alleppey shop I would never have found on my own."

      "Before I get to the great food and beautiful location, I want to be sure to say how much we loved Master Anil, our yoga instructor. Master Anil (Anilkumar V.M.,) took about five minutes, literally five minutes, of watching me and my daughter complete a few simple stretches to pinpoint our individual physical trouble spots (tightness and pulled muscles) and then designed our private sessions to address them. He is a generous, kind spirit and the best yoga instructor, by MILES, than any of the many others that my daughter and I have ever studied with. His gentle routines (one each morning and each afternoon) resulted in both of us feeling looser, stronger, and calmer than we had in years. I am seriously trying to figure out how to return for a solid month so that he can work his magic over a longer period."

      "The food is unpretentious and delicious. We enjoyed all the fresh fruit on offer, loved the simple but perfect omelettes, and the home-baked breads that were served alongside the fragrant main dishes. We were in India two weeks to attend a friend's wedding, staying at a 5-star hotel, and although some of it was fancier and richer, none of the food we ate in Delhi was as good as what we ate at Beach Paradise Ayurveda Resort."

      "The room we had was basic, but clean and well-maintained, and the air-conditioning unit worked well. The resort is situated directly on the beach at a place where fishermen go to sea every day, and there are locals in the area mending their nets, etc. Be cautious where you choose to swim, however, as not all the neighborhood enjoys the benefits of indoor plumbing and there are a few little piles of evidence here and there, if you walk north of the resort. If you go south toward Alleppey Beach this is less of an issue."

      "I would give this place 5 stars if beach bathing had been perfect, but it is a wonderful place that I recommend highly and is a very very good value for the money. If you are serious about yoga, absolutely be sure that Master Anil is available at the time of your visit - you will be grateful for every moment of his time and attention."

      "It is a genuine Ayurveda beach resort. Most of the customers select this property for Ayurveda treatment. We also select one white bread program and it was amazing. The Ayurvedic food was also nice and organic. The beach is safe, the room is nice, and the staffs are friendly, especially Joseph. "
