Program

This monsoon yoga and Ayurveda retreat at Hinterland Village is a great opportunity to reconnect one’s body and mind whilst experiencing the magical rains of Kerala. This retreat is designed and flexible for all levels of yoga practitioners. Enjoy traditional Monsoon Ayurvedic therapies or massages and deep relaxation sessions while discovering the benefits of yoga and meditation in the cacophony of nature. Nestled in seven acres of lush vegetation and home to a wide variety of bird species, Hinterland Village is the ideal place to becoming one with nature. Come experience the warm hospitality of a Kerala village and be ready to taste some delicious Kerala food!

Every year, the hot temperatures of April and May cool when it’s around June 1st, the southwest monsoon winds bring rains to Kerala. When it finally arrives to quench the parched soil, the monsoon makes it perfect for taking Ayurvedic treatments and for deeper meditation. The softened environment renders mind and body to become more receptive to the qualities of the therapies. Quite naturally, one discovers less preoccupation with mental constructions about the future and experiences more of a gentle and present physicality. This state of awareness and receptivity promotes deep cellular and energetic integration of the benefits of Ayurvedic treatments.

The moist qualities of monsoon also help soften and ripen the seven tissues of the body the dhatus during poorva karma, the preparatory phase of pancha karma involving snehana (oil application) and svedhana (steam treatments).

Retreat location

Hinterland Village represents seven acres of lush greenery - a haven of rich native biodiversity and an oasis of peace on the outskirts of the city of Kochi. Hinterland Village boasts more than 180 native species of flora that grow abundantly and naturally throughout the year. The Bodhi center at Hinterland Village was an initiative undertaken by its founder, Unni, to promote yoga and Ayurveda. Unni’s desire was to create a space where guests and visitors could immerse themselves in spiritual practices in a peaceful and natural environment.

The Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga Center at Hinterland Village is a spiritual paradise set amidst jungle giants overlooking a paddy field. The space around the Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga Center is a paradise for bird watching and nature walks. The resort also has a swimming pool set amongst the greens so guests can cool off from the South Indian heat.
