Explore your creative nature!
The Tipi Garden Resort has been totally refurbished and improved for the 2017 winter season and boasts a variety of accommodation to suit every taste. From a luxury tipi to traditional rooms, an eco mini villa, and even a rooftop treehouse. The accommodations are set in a vibrant, tropical garden just one minute from the beach. Free Wi-Fi is available for all the guests.
If you are a single independent traveler, you may have to share a room if Tipi Garden Resort is fully booked during the days you attend. Blue Planet Retreats can guarantee same sex sleeping arrangements if you require and there will never be more than two people sharing any room. If you are a couple or two friends who would like to share a room, then please contact Blue Planet Retreats at the time of booking to arrange this for you.
There are four Luxury Tipis nestled in the organic garden and a one minute walk brings to you the golden sands of Kudle Beach. The four Luxury Tipis surround the yoga shala and are serviced by a dedicated newly built toilet and shower block. If you have never stayed in a tipi, you will be amazed at the level of comfort they can provide. An unforgettable experience far superior to staying in the most luxurious of rooms.
Unsurprisingly, Luxury Tipis is the most popular accommodation at the Tipi Garden Resort as they offer a truly glamorous experience. The Luxury Tipis are furnished to a very high standard with a king-sized bed or two single beds as required. Each Luxury Tipi has its own private veranda with shade, seating, and hammocks. Attached private basin and wash area with running water are available for each Luxury Tipi.
The tree house style rooftop boasts the best views at the Tipi Garden Resort. It combines the excitement of tree house living with the comfort and safety of having a solid floor under your feet. The 360-degree views are truly spectacular. Nature lovers will spend hours observing the local wildlife from this great vantage point. You will see monkeys, peacocks, eagles and kites, kingfishers, mongooses, and much more.
The accommodation is available with a king-sized bed or two single beds and has a large private balcony where you can practice your yoga or simply enjoy some quiet time. Guests staying in this room can use the eco bathroom and the kitchenette downstairs if the double room is unoccupied.
The Double Bedroom comprises the ground floor of the Mini Beach Villa. Located in the east end of the Tipi Garden Resort, it is surrounded by its own private garden and has a private entrance gate. The large balcony and veranda offer ample outdoor living space and there is also a kitchenette available for preparing your own drinks, snacks, and meals if you require.
Guests staying here can use the eco bathroom. The location of this room in the quiet east end of the property means that guests can enjoy a very large garden without any through traffic from guests staying in other parts of the resort. This also gives you a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful nature and wildlife of the forest that borders the property on this end. From peacocks to kingfishers, mongooses, and monkeys, nature lovers will enjoy a jungle book experience.
The Garden Bungalow is small but full of charm. Constructed with a mix of traditional and modern materials, it was the first guest room to be built in the Tipi Garden Resort. This room has a double bed and is suitable for a couple or single occupancy. It is located in a shady spot in the organic garden just a one minute walk to Kudle Beach.
Sarah Bradpiece, MA has created a drawing workshop for anyone wanting to develop their creative process to run in conjunction with the yoga course run by Atalya Levy. As yoga focuses the attention on the body's internal space and the nuances of the body dialogue, so the drawing course will seek to reflect this by paying attention to the action of drawing as well as how you really see and how you think.
Mark making, tone, and perspective can be a gesture of using a tiny paintbrush with the thumb and forefinger or using the whole body to create a line in the wet sand with a stick. India is a mammoth landscape of massive contrasts. From tiny miniatures painted with minute attention to detail to the huge effigies of the Buddha or Hindu Gods. Indian culture itself is a masterclass at engaging the emotions of 'scale'.
Using different mediums, ranging from fine pen and ink to thick charcoal and powder pigments, you will begin by exploring the way 'scale' engages your attention.
The retreat runs for nine days and consists of one daily yoga class plus two daily art classes. Your day begins with an invigorating morning yoga class followed by a healthy, delicious breakfast. You will then have the first of your art classes followed by lunch. After lunch, it's your chance for some free time to enjoy the beach, explore the local area, or just chill in a hammock.
Your second art class is in the afternoon. You are then free to enjoy the sunset and jam sessions on the beach and in the evening sample the cuisine in one of the many local restaurants. Blue Planet Retreats strives to achieve a healthy balance between learning and fun during your YogaPlus+ retreat.
Your retreat venue, the Tipi Garden Resort, is in Kudle Beach in the South Indian state of Karnataka. It is set in a vibrant, tropical garden just one minute from the beach. The Tipi Garden Resort is located on a large piece of private land hemmed in by the stunning beach and the forested green foothills of the Western Ghats. Kudle Beach can be easily reached by taxi or rickshaw from Gokarna town.
Gokarna is well connected by bus and train. Buses stop right in town and Gokarna Road railway station is just 15 minutes away by taxi. The nearest airport is Goa International Airport (GOI) which is 150 kilometers north of Gokarna. If you require any assistance with your travel arrangements please contact Blue Planet Retreats.
The last few years, Gokarna has gained a reputation as one of the best yoga centers for the winter season in India. The natural beauty of the area combined with the ancient spiritual tradition of the holy town of Gokarna makes it the ideal location for yoga students and teachers. No words can describe the unbelievable beauty and magic of Gokarna and Kudle Beach.
The beach is one of the most beautiful in all of India. Surrounded by forested hills and facing the sunset, you will be dreaming of returning to it as soon as you have gone. You will carry the soothing sound of the rolling waves and the sight of the magical sunsets in your mind for a long time after you have left. Everyone loves Kudle! There are no clubs and discos on Kudle Beach but what better than an impromptu beach party around a fire with music and dancing under the stars.
For the more adventurous, you can have a night swim and be amazed by the phosphorescent plankton that is found in these waters. Gokarna is one of the holiest places in all of India. Known as the Varanasi of the south and home to the revered Atma (soul) Shiva Lingam, it is always bustling with pilgrims visiting the many temples found here. Despite its spiritual significance, it has remained a charming, small coastal town with just three main streets.
Temple lovers and photographers can spend hours exploring and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere. Gokarna is located on a small peninsula and the area is a beach lovers’ paradise. As well as Kudle Beach, you can enjoy many other beaches including Paradise Beach, Om Beach, Half Moon Beach, Nirvana Beach, and the eight-kilometer long Main Beach. They are easily reached by beautiful walks over the headlands, by boat or by taxi.
The two-hour trek from Kudle Beach to Paradise Beach, passing through Om and Half Moon beaches, is a must for anyone visiting the area. Om Beach is so called because of its distinctive shape. Spend a few hours here swinging in a hammock in the shade and sipping an ice-cold beer, going in the calm water for a refreshing dip and enjoying a lunch of freshly caught fish in one of the beach shacks.
Half Moon Beach is the smallest and quietest beach in Gokarna. You will forget the rest of the world exists and, more often than not, you can have the whole beach to yourself. All the beaches can be reached by the regular boat services that are available here. Look out for dolphins as you ride the blue water and be amazed at the remarkable beauty of the Konkan coast.
The Tipi Garden Resort will serve you a healthy, delicious, and nutritious daily breakfast and lunch. Lunch consists of a hearty, nutritious meal made from locally sourced ingredients.
