India Yoga Retreat

This serenely stunning retreat is set in the shade of a coconut grove on the pristine shores of the Arabian Sea, Northern Kerala. The bare foot, yet luxury experience at Neeleshwar Hermitage is a tranquil hideaway, where Vedic well-being meets boutique-chic to create complete relaxation for the body and soul. Harmonize your being by the waves of the ocean on the golden sands, relax by the infinity pool, listen to the sounds of the sea, and walk along the endless beach, as sea birds fly over the ocean horizon.

During this retreat, you will be staying at Neeleshwar Hermitage. An oasis of calm set in twelve naturally landscaped acres, Neeleshwar Hermitage is built according to the traditional architectural principles of Kerala Vastu. The whole site oriented to the east and the rising sun, while the buildings are all placed in correct relation to each other, the four directions and the site as a whole.

The traditional wood-and-thatch architecture is balanced with stylish contemporary touches and familiar modern comforts. The site overlooks a gloriously unspoiled beach of sand, stretching as far as the eye can see in both directions. The sea is clean and safe for swimming most of the year.

The palm-roofed garden cottages are of traditional Keralan design, surrounded by lush gardens of palm trees, hibiscus, and frangipani flowers. The secluded verandahs catch the sea breeze and far reaching views of the deserted golden coastline. The Neeleshwar warm and welcoming staff are always at hand to help you with anything you need on this stunningly authentic South Indian yoga and Ayurveda retreat.

Program

On waking up in this stunning location, we will share a sunrise Vinyasa Flow sadhana, blissfully infused with the grace of asana, flowing through breath towards a soft, meditative mind. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we will explore elemental vinyasa: the Earth, the ocean, the sun, the sky, the stars, the universe within. These soulful practices create a sense of connection, openness and vibrancy, leaving you feeling lovingly energised, uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we will surrender to a more restorative, yin practice, allowing your being to rest, renew and rejuvenate. Ayurvedic massage, treatments and consultations will also be available for you to experience at the Priya Spa throughout your stay.

Included excursions

Included in this retreat is a two-hour sunset cruise on The Lotus Houseboat through the enchanting local back waters in your last evening at the retreat.
