Retreat location

The yoga retreat will take place in several locations throughout India. It will take place throughout Kochi, Munnar, Periyar, and Alleppey, India.

Cochin

Cochin has a history stretching back to the time of King Solomon, when it was known as ‘Queen of the Arabian Sea’. Arabian, Phoenician, and Chinese traders all stopped here in search of spices, silks, and sandalwood. Marco Polo and Vasco da Gama followed, as did the Dutch East India Company and later the British.

Today, Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Hindus still live side by side, and Chinese fishing-nets, introduced by merchants from the court of Kublai Khan, continue to haul in fish. The adjoining backwaters make it a popular destination.

Munnar

Munnar is the most beautiful hill station of south India with an altitude of 1,600 meter from the sea level amidst picturesque mountain ranges with lush green vegetation and scenic waterfalls, Munnar is a living paradise on the earth. Some of the highest tea gardens of the world are also located at Munnar.

The picturesque town of Munnar is pristinely clean and beautifully maintained. The quiet surroundings of Munnar offer you a secluded environment to relax in the lap of Mother Nature.

The hills also have some of the best trekking routes of India and so known as 'trekker's paradise'. For adventure-seeking tourists, the place offers best conditions for paragliding and rock climbing. Anamudi, the highest peak of south India at 2695 meters adds to the fame of the place.

Periyar

Periyar National Park is situated in the hills of the Western Ghats. Periyar has one of the richest habitats for large mammals, as it provides both excellent cover and nourishment in the form of succulent shoots and grasses. Here it is possible to see large herds of Indian elephant as well as Nilgiri Langur.

There are more than 30 species of mammals including tiger, Gaur (Indian Bison), Sloth Bear, and also a very rich bird life including the Great Indian Hornbill. To maintain the sanctity of the park, game viewing is only allowed by boat rides on the lake.

Alleppey

The waterways are the lifeblood of the area; local commerce revolves around it with boats laden with everything from fish to today’s papers, gliding by! The backwaters are an ornithologist’s paradise so look out for glorious multi colored kingfishers!
