"Amazing week away"
I went to the retreat for a week with hardly any expectations.
After the 8 days I didn't want to leave.
I went to the daily yoga classes and just spend time with myself. There is heaps of space to retreat or you can join the yogi classes / coaching sessions.
I will definitly go back.

"Sadly would not recommend for yoga lovers "
Really positive and friendly spiritual place. I would recommend the village for people who are looking for religious guidance. Volunteering seemed to be the best way to experience this place as everything is then free including the yoga classes and religious styled life coaching sessions. You will also never go hungry and every meal is vegetarian with vegan options also provided.

"Magical land of happiness!!"
Everything about my week here exceeded expectations like I can't explain. The people are all amazing, the yoga was great and tailored more towards beginners which was nice after a yoga break of a few years! The accommodation is basic but clean and all you need.
from Sydney Australia,
I would like to say what an amazing place this is - the yoga was lovely, the environment was just beautiful and the people were loving warm and friendly.
I had made a mistake with my booking and they were so accommodating and did everything they could to fix the problem which they did with grace and generosity.
I had the most relaxing time at the Krishna Eco Yoga Community. The yoga was excellent, with a variety of teachers and style, and the atmosphere created at the village is one of kindness, calm and generosity towards each other. The place itself is beautiful, the food fantastic, and it is up to each of the participants to take part in yoga classes, talks and other activities.
After 8 days at the village I feel rejuvenated and resourced. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a break and some quiet time!
Amazing and unforgettable experience in a beautiful location with great people!
