You will spend eight nights in a private, en suite room in a bungalow five minutes from the beach. Each bungalow has two double rooms, each equipped with mosquito nets and with its own bathroom and toilet.

The house is quiet, cool and peaceful. It is equipped for yoga and massage practice, and there are relaxation spaces set up in the house. Nakedness is possible within the grounds, but it is not imposed. Freedom and respect are the golden rules.

This retreat for men allows you to practice yoga daily and thus progress in your physical practice. It is also an opportunity to deepen your understanding of what yoga is for you.

In the morning, the course is intense and complete, and it lasts two hours. Daily practice makes it possible to fix and deepen the bases of the practice, to visit its different possibilities, and to sample a wide variety of postures. The yoga classes between men are an opportunity to share experience in comfortable and friendly company, the setting is authentic and pretty idyllic. This is a retreat from life in the city, from the western lifestyle, from certain eating habits.

Four afternoons are devoted to workshop practices. The workshops are an opportunity to work in groups on a theme such as stretching, muscle strengthening, pranayama and meditation techniques, as well as Tantra and male eroticism.

Moments of relaxation and rest are planned; the beach and the house are perfect places to lounge and nap. Rest is an activity not to be neglected. Excursions are planned to discover the natural settings and the local culture.

Your retreat will include:

  • Yoga practice every morning for two hours
  • Workshops in the afternoons with themed sessions like: muscular reinforcements, dynamic stretching, pranayama and meditation, Tantra and eroticism
  • Local culture and backwaters excursions
  • Ayurvedic massages provided by a massage therapist

The classes are fully bilingual, French and English. The retreat runs for one week from Wednesday morning to Tuesday evening, with accommodation available from Tuesday to Wednesday. This is seven days practice and eight nights of accommodation. Arrival the day prior to the start of the retreat is required and included. The package is fully inclusive of accommodation, classes, massages, meals, excursions, and airport transfers.

Tantric massages are available as an option. Mark also offers training in Ayurvedic and Tantric massage techniques. They are subject to a prior reservation so that all the necessary attention to theses sessions can be provided.

Naked yoga practice

The practice integrates full conscience breathing, a warm-up, varied and adapted corrected postures, stretches, muscular reinforcements, and relaxation. The approach is based on traditional Hatha yoga alongside some Vinyasa Flow and Iyengar influences, offering a mix of static and dynamic postures. The yoga practice proposed is thorough, complete, serious, and authentic.

On the physical standpoint, practicing naked helps to view the body fully which facilitates adjustments and improves precision in the postures. On the mental plane, it actually enables a complete detachment of the physical body leading to a better view of the self. The practice is most importantly respectful of oneself and others.

  • A cruise on the backwater network to enjoy the beautiful scenery and serenity of the backwaters at sunset
  • A visit to the local temples and ashrams to understand the spiritual dimension of India and the local culture
  • Mark Yoganu

    Rishikesh YogPeeth Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Hatha Yoga)

    Mark is a gay yogi whose practice is turned towards his nature. This is why he decided to focus on yoga for men, especially on naked yoga for men. His approach is holistic, natural, naked. As a yoga practitioner, Mark is trying to follow the authentic path of yoga through his practice, what he learns, what he teaches, what he shares. His practice is that of Hatha yoga, since he always wanted to follow the traditional and authentic method. Hatha is the base of all physical yoga. Mark has followed two yoga teacher training courses in Rishikesh, and several specialization workshops and trainings.

This retreat will take place on the coastal resort of Varkala, India. The South Cliff is less dense and less touristic than the North Cliff. The setting is more rural, quiet, and authentic whilst being very close to the beach, the fishermen villages, and the city center. In fact, the house and the bungalows are located five minutes from the beach.
