"Everything I expected and more"
This is a very clean and comfortable rural location. Dr. Steephen and his staff are friendly, thoughtful and make every effort to ensure the best possible experience. I felt welcome as soon as I arrived. The food was excellent and there were a variety of dishes served each day. The yoga instruction was excellent and I learned a lot about traditional yoga that I was not familiar with. Overall - It was more than I hoped for.

"Fantastic, life changing experience "
This is nothing like an industrial, impersonal experience but rather a fantastic human, caring opportunity. You will be taking care of and looked after for your own self, in a wonderful fruit and spice garden. Not only will you be physically and mentally recharged but you will also learn a lot. And, on top of that There is plenty to discover around: waterfall, elephants, you name it. Don t hesitate, go for it.

"The authentic Ayurvedic retreat experience "
Time slowed down. An Immersion experience in Indian village living, culture and tranquility. Daily yoga sesssions taught me to focus on my breathing, so important to a good yoga practice but often not given enough attention, and Dr Steephan took the time to share why and how.
The Ayurvedic treatments were excellent and the therapists were genuinely concerned about my comfort and well being. The therapists are well trained in respect to executing their trade, in terms of each treatment, food preparation, hosting me as their guest and trying to accommodate every request.
