"An unexpected healing journey."

I had little to no expectations when arriving to the retreat. I’ve been so overworked that doing a bit of yoga every day was all I hoped for. After reading some of the reviews I was intrigued about what the experience is going to be like, as some of the opinions seemed to vary greatly.

What I experienced in Sannyasa surpassed anything I could ever expect from a yoga retreat.

Vishal is a person with an opened heart, with a lot on his shoulders and with a dream of healing people who come to him asking. His personality made me trust him instantly and after a few days we started deep, transformational work on the trauma I’ve experienced 3 years ago. I gave up on trying to understand it some time ago, thinking that nothing can help me… And out of the blue the practice that Vishal introduced me to did. So in the end something that was supposed to be a bit of Yoga asana practice turned into a transformational healing journey.

I am a yoga teacher myself, I’ve practiced yoga for more than 11 years, I’ve met many teachers on my path and no one has ever introduced me to the practice of Yoga philosophy the way Vishal did.

His classes are well thought through with consecutive work on chakras. His deep knowledge and understanding made huge chunks of my own knowledge ‘click’.

I feel very grateful I’ve met such a teacher on my path.

The accommodation is great and gives tons of freedom.

Dani’s massages were out of this world <3

Homemade food healed my digestive problems.

"Einzigartige Yoga- und Meditation-Erfahrung"

Die Prayanama-Stunden am Vormittag am Strand: sehr friedlich und der beste Start für den Tag.

Die Mediation-Übungen waren einzigartig und für mich eine Entdeckung. Vishal wiesst, wie man die Leute zu Meditation bringen kann und es liegt ihm sehr am Herz, dass jede/r ihrer/seiner eigenen Reise folgen kann. Was Vishal zu dieser Retreat mit seiner Energie und Leidenschaft bringt kann man nirgendwo anders finden.

Die Abendessen von Rita: jeden Abend ein neues leckeres Gericht aus Mauritius!

Die Freundlichkeit von Dave in den Yoga-Stunden: dazu hat er die Übungen mir angepasst.

Die Frühstücke: Sundeep bereitet ganz leckere Oatmeals mit frischen Früchten und Nüssen vor.

Und schlussendlich der Strand von Trou aux Biches.

"Home away from home, your soul will thank you"

Such a fantastic experience. This was my first yoga retreat and I couldn’t have picked a better one. Great balance of learning, yoga, pranayama, meditation, relaxation, phenomenal food and self discovery. Vishal is a wonderful teacher and his enthusiasm for helping others is infectious. There are so many positive things I have taken from this trip and I cannot thank Vishal and his team enough. Dave with his great energy, patience and helpful posture corrections. Sandeep for the conversations, company and best breakfast recipe which I will shamelessly steal. Vilash and his magical healing hands massaged all tight muscles away. And last but definitely not least, big thank you to Rita for feeding my soul. Her home cooking of local dishes was the best way to end the day and I loved having a daily dinner together in the main house with everyone, made me feel at home.

Location is a couple minutes from the beach and pranayama is on a jetty over the water every morning. I stayed in the one bedroom studio and it was huge. Massive kitchen with everything I needed.

"Un voyage aux sources "

L enseignement de Vishal combiné aux massages Ayurvedic de Danny offre une guérison physique , émotionnel , et spirituel unique 🙏. Les profondes connaissances de Vishal permettent d accéder à une compréhension et pratique d un yoga qui retrouve ses sources spirituelles . Le programme (Pranayama , asanas et méditations ) est construit de façon à permettre une approfondissement progressif de la pratique .. . Les pranayamas du matin sur la plage sont juste magique . Et un temps libre dans l après midi permet de pouvoir profiter d un lieu exceptionnel

. Vishal prend soins de chaque détails et nous avons pu bénéficier de repas mauriciens exeptionels . Une journée d exploration de l île et de ses lieux sacrés a aussi été un must 🙏

"More than just a time out"

I came to this retreat fro a time out, to get out of my confining routines and to reset. What I found it was an experience that can change your life - for the better. The host, Vishal, gives his complete soul to this project helping you to experience a truely spiritual but also fun experience. The program is just right to find rebalance and is topped off with the daily diving class, which allows glimpses of the beauty of Mauritius.

But Vishal thinks of everything, even the food - which during my stay was mainly cooked by his mother - is literal food for the soul.

I am still very thankful I came across this retreat and am doing my best to keep up those routines in my normal life. But I am also already planning my next visit. As it did me so much good!

"Found myself again - thanks :)"

I came to the retreat depressed, and sort of lost within myself after a relationship split. Vishal helped me find myself again through his holistic approach, and has given me tools and tactics that I can use for the rest of my life. Thank you so much to all the team who where all delightful and hospitable throughout my stay.

"Yoga retreat or business trip..."

- The location of the villa which is 5min walking distance to the beach.

- The script for the meditation class was good. His class and explanations suit all levels.

"A beautiful Healing Process"

What a rejuvenate healing journey with peaceful environment and beautiful soul surroundings!

Thanks so much Vishal for a wonderful experience for me in my life! I had a great week with you and your team Sundeep, Dave, and Rita. Also Puzi families! Definitely is one of the best moment to learn and understand myself more. Sometimes we do need time, space and guidance from someone to lead us to a better journey. During the 8 days program, I have learned and be able to feel the spiritual energy and positive attitude Vishal giving to us. I really enjoy the spiritual knowledge in this retreat and is also the hi-light. It makes you understand and connect to your inner self. Vishal's gueniue personality and sharing his vision to others are Much appreciated. Sundeep's delicious breakfast made with love is another hi-light to start a day. Sitting together and share thoughts. Sannyasa is a peaceful space without boundaries! I will be back for sure ! Thanks to you all! 🌈✨😉

"Yoga retreat experience "

Meditation was fantastic and enlightening. Meditation early morning in particular was great. Learned lots; the instructor Vishal wasn't afraid to go the extra mile, answering anything you wanted to know. A great Mauritian experience with a real feel for the culture which was all part of the retreat. Food was absolutely exquisite! Cooked and prepared by a Mauritian family who made sure they satisfied your pallete.

"Stunning 4 day retreat "

I was at Sannyasa retreat for 4 days and what an amazing experience

Even before I arrived Vishal kept in contact to ensure that all would run smoothly for my arrival and it was comforting to know that someone from the retreat would be picking me up from the airport

The retreat is tucked away in a quiet part of Trou aux Biches where you will find everything you need pharmacy, shops, cafes, restaurants, bank and post office

The beach is a short stroll away where in the peace of dawn each morning the Pranayama class is held

Kind and caring Sandeep provides wholesome and healthy breakfasts to set you up for the day

Yoga with Dav is relaxing and his kind nature left me feeling very nurtured

Massage at the retreat is truly amazing and both Vishal and Vilash have ‘magic hands’ easing away all aches and pains and calming the mind

Vegetarian meals with local produce are prepared lovingly by the lovely Rita. My tummy expanded !!!

The excursions are definitely an added bonus to soak up some culture

Meditation led by the incredibly kind and knowledgable Vishal were truly life changing for me and gave me the tools and tips to take away with to practice in my own

I would recommend this retreat and WILL be coming back for more

Love you all

"Excellent mauritius and yoga experience"

My yoga retreat at sannyasa was a wonderful and interesting experience! The meditation and pranyama lessons with vishal were great and he really likes to share his huge knowledge in all the topics around yoga philosophy and ayurveda! Hatha yoga with dave was as well very nice and the ayurveda massages were excellent. In the guesthouse sandeep was a great host and prepared an excellent breakfast and for dinner Rita cooked increadibly tasteful, vegetarian creolic-ayurvedic meals! The excursions with vishal were interesting and fun, he knows the island perfectly well and you will have a ‚local‘ experience with him.

Can totally recommend sannyasa for a real mauritius and yoga experience.
