Pets are accepted solely at the discretion of the hotel and, with the exception of guide dogs, are not allowed in public places. Clients and guests are asked to check in advance with the hotel.

This Namaste Yoga Farm cottage makes an ideal holiday retreat and the perfect base for exploring all the delights of the south coast. Relax and unwind after the beach in this cozy cottage, or enjoy the fresh air and dine in a beach restaurant. Discover the sub-tropical gardens and spend a day at one of the many beaches surrounding this lovely Brahmin town. It is very peaceful.
Classic cottages have a garden view without glass in the wooden frames. Not good to book if you are scared of small animals like geckos, frogs, and ants because they are visiting frequently. This is an outdoor cottage with small critters.
Tree houses are very basic and build on plywood boards. You have a light, electric plug-ins, Wi-Fi (WLAN) connection, roll-out mattress, and a mosquito net. There is a wooden ladder going up. The roof and low side walls are made from coconut leaves and bamboo. Toilets and showers are within a few seconds walk and the chill-out space is just below. Shape and size of the tree house vary because they get rebuild every year because of the monsoon.
Namaste Yoga Farm's seascape flows into these rooms designed to embrace the coastal view. Simple design and comfortable furnishings allow for nature's tranquility to permeate your personal resort accommodation. Most rooms feature either a private terrace or balcony.
Are you looking for a retreat from your busy lifestyle at a quiet, private hideaway close to the beach? Namaste Yoga Farm's six secluded rooms offer accommodation as an alternative to the motel / hotel experience. With views of the Arabian Sea, this deluxe guesthouse provides guests with outstanding service in a peaceful setting.
On this retreat, you will be in the present moment, learn how to enjoy things, find your balance, experience the power of silence, discover what aromatherapy can do for you, and enjoy the floating experience. It‘s all a mind game? You will get conscious of the influence of music, colors, and more. This retreat will make you more aware of upcoming stress and find a more relaxed attitude towards the challenges of your everyday life.
This retreat is all about keeping it in check. Some stress in life is normal - and a little stress can help you to feel alert, motivated, focused, energetic, and even excited. Take positive actions to channel this energy effectively and you may find yourself performing better, achieving more, and feeling good.
What happens to your body when you are stressed? You all feel stressed from time to time - it’s all part of the emotional ups and downs of life. Stress has many sources. It can come from your environment, from your bodies, or your own thoughts, and how you view the world around you. It is very natural to feel stressed around moments of pressure such as exam time - but you are physiologically designed to deal with stress and react to it.
When you feel under pressure, the nervous system instructs your bodies to release stress hormones including adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol. These produce physiological changes to help you cope with the threat or danger you see to be upon you. This is called the stress response or the fight-or-flight response.
When you are stressed, the respiratory system is immediately affected. You tend to breathe harder and more quickly in an effort to quickly distribute oxygen-rich blood around your body. Although this is not an issue for most of you, it could be a problem for people with asthma who may feel short of breath and struggle to take in enough oxygen. It can also cause quick and shallow breathing, where minimal air is taken in, which can lead to hyperventilation. This is more likely if someone is prone to anxiety and panic attacks.
Stress wreaks havoc on your immune systems. Cortisol released in your bodies suppresses the immune system and inflammatory pathways and you become more susceptible to infections and chronic inflammatory conditions. Your ability to fight off illness is reduced.
The musculoskeletal system is also affected. Your muscles tense up, which is the body’s natural way of protecting yourselves from injury and pain. Repeated muscle tension can cause bodily aches and pains and when it occurs in the shoulders, neck, and head, it may result in tension headaches and migraines.
Stress can lead to migraines. There are cardiovascular effects. When stress is acute (in the moment), heart rate and blood pressure increase, but they return to normal once the acute stress has passed. If acute stress is repeatedly experienced, or if stress becomes chronic (over a long period of time), it can cause damage to blood vessels and arteries. This increases the risk for hypertension, heart attack, or stroke.
The endocrine system also suffers. This system plays an important role in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, and reproductive processes. Your metabolism is affected.
The hypothalamus is located in the brain and it plays a key role in connecting the endocrine system with the nervous system. Stress signals coming from the hypothalamus trigger the release of stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine, and then blood sugar (glucose) is produced by the liver to provide you with energy to deal with the stressful situation. Most people reabsorb the extra blood sugar when the stress subsides, but for some people, there is an increased risk of diabetes.
Stress can have some unpleasant gastrointestinal effects. You might experience heartburn and acid reflux, especially if you have changed your eating habits to eat more or less or increased your consumption of fatty and sugary foods. The ability of your intestines to absorb nutrients from your food may be reduced. You may experience stomach pain, bloating and nausea, diarrhea, or constipation.
There can be problems with your reproductive systems, too. For men, chronic stress may affect the production of testosterone and sperm. It may even lead to erectile dysfunction or impotence. Women can experience changes in their menstrual cycles and increased premenstrual symptoms.
What happens to your mind when you are stressed? Stress has marked effects on your emotional well-being. It is normal to experience high and low moods in your daily lives, but when you are stressed, you may feel more tired, have mood swings, or feel more irritable than usual.
Stress causes hyperarousal, which means you may have difficulty falling or staying asleep and experience restless nights. This impairs concentration, attention, learning, and memory, all of which are particularly important around exam time. Researchers have linked poor sleep to chronic health problems, depression, and even obesity.
Losing sleep affects your ability to learn. The way that you cope with stress has an additional, indirect effect on your health. Under pressure, people may adopt more harmful habits such as smoking, drinking too much alcohol, or taking drugs to relieve stress. But these behaviors are inappropriate ways to adapt and only lead to more health problems and risks to your personal safety and well-being.
Notes: There will be in-house yoga teachers and guest teachers. The schedule is subject to change without prior notice.
This retreat will take place in Gokarna, India. If you fancy a day off some time after your de-stress retreat, there are some wonderful places to visit around Gokarna. From boat trips to spotting dolphins and kayaking to secret coves, to exploring the coastline by scooter. Drive through picturesque villages to the Yana falls and caves or you can seek out the half-moon beach for a swim.
Gokarna has more than 1,000 temples to be explored with its pristine beaches and breathtaking landscapes. It is a Hindu pilgrimage town in Karnataka and a newly found hub for beach lovers and hippies. Gokarna is not very conventionally touristy. The beaches are meant for a slow, relaxed holiday, and everything on the beach goes at the same relaxed pace.
Full of coconut and palm trees, the ocean and clean sands, Gokarna is a one of its kind place in the country. Nature lovers will enjoy Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, one of the world's biodiversity hotspots just 90 kilometers north of Gokarna. Whether or not you catch a glimpse of an elusive leopard or a troop of monkeys, the mountainous jungle scenery is spectacular.
Shoppers and souvenir seekers will love the markets in Gokarna, where you can find everything from silk scarves and silver jewelry to sandals, sarongs, and spices. Remember to haggle - it's all part of the experience!
Moreover, Ayurvedic treatments are available from Dr. Ratan Singh, just 200 meters from Namaste Yoga Farm toward Gokarna. The following therapies are offered: Ayurveda, naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, and Schuessler Salt and Bio Mineral Salt treatments.
A healthy breakfast will be served in the morning with the option of sweet or salty such as fruit musli, homemade yogurt, local fruits, idly and dosa's, honey, extra virgin olive oil, tahini, brown German bread, fruit salads, coffee, and tea. Namaste Yoga Farm focuses on health! The food is pure vegetarian but vegan can be an option. They also have homemade tofu, soymilk, and cheese.
Because Namaste Yoga Farm likes homemade foods, they produce tofu, yogurt themselves, and also buy from local families other homemade products like a peanut - cashew butter, cheese, and brown bread. Ingredients are cooked simply to maintain the maximum nutritional value and flavor. Let Namaste Yoga Farm know about any issues with foods you might have and they will do their best to adjust accordingly.
