Then, you will have a delicious and nutritious breakfast with plenty of time before starting a slow-paced Hatha flow aimed at loosening and relaxing the body and mind.
Enjoy a massage of your choice before having a local vegetarian creole or Indian cuisine at the Buddha Garden cafe. Most of the afternoon is covered by our carefully handpicked excursions visiting some of the most famous landmarks of Mauritius. The day ends with a meditation class and in the evening, you will have dinner and can sometimes gather together for a quick after-meal walk on the local beach.
Our excursions on the 3 days are carefully arranged as follows:
On Day 1, spend the afternoon visiting the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden - a popular tourist attraction, Pamplemousses Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere and for a long time, it ranked third among all the gardens that could be admired over the surface of the globe. After London's Kew Gardens, the Pamplemousses Garden is one of the world's best botanical gardens. The centerpiece of the gardens is a pond filled with giant Victoria amazonica water lilies, native to South America. It also hosts a wide variety of plants and flowers covering an area of almost 37 hectares.
Day 2 is spent mostly outside the resort after breakfast, visiting some of the famous landmarks of Mauritius. Our first stop is the Grand Bassin sacred lake with a 108-foot statue of God Shiva and the 108 Shivlings temple, where we enjoy a hatha yoga class on the border of the lake, have a full guided tour on Hindu Gods and temples before getting blessed by Indian monks.
Lunch is set up at Chamarel, the seven colored earth - a volcanic phenomenon producing seven different shades of earth. After a quick tour of Chamarel waterfalls, we meditate at the Riambel Energy Vortex Centre - one of 7 energy vortices in the world.
Day 3 excursion covers some of the top beaches from the north to the east of the island cruising along white soft sand beaches, rocky beaches, grassy and forest beaches.
Vishal will be your instructor for this retreat and he will conduct the courses together with two other yoga teachers. He and the other teachers are certified in Hatha and Ashtanga yoga.
This retreat will take place in Pamplemousses, Mauritius. The tropical island of Mauritius sets the perfect environment for sun, sea, and its exclusive white sandy beaches. The wellness facilities in Mauritius are located a few minutes’ walk from the famous beach of Trou-aux-Biches village.
The center provides the most unspoiled, pristine, and traditional natural remedies, blending the perfect natural environment with the authentic forms of yoga and Ayurveda from the Himalayas.
The retreat is very close to local amenities, supermarkets, craft shops, diving and sports centers, local cash points, foreign exchange, taxi stands, and bus terminals.
The capital city of Mauritius, Port-Louis, is only 30-minute away by bus from Sannyasa retreat facilities. Bus fare hardly costs a Euro to get to Port-Louis. Known for its old architecture and harbor of Mauritius, Port-Louis is a great city to stroll around, providing an excellent history of the French and British colonization.
The Natural History Museum in Port-Louis contains some fascinating artifacts such as early maps of the island and paintings of Mauritius' original fauna, including, of course, the dodo. The bell and a cache of Spanish coins from the wreck of the St. Géran are also on display. The ship's demise in 1744, off the northeast coast of Mauritius, inspired the famous love story Paul et Virginie by Bernardin de St-Pierre.

To complete your retreat, you will be served with daily vegetarian breakfast and dinner. The local cooks serve essentially Mauritian vegetarian meals with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Traces of both northern and southern Indian Mauritian cuisine can be found on the menu.
Common preparations are delicious curry, chutney, rougaille (tomato paste that is very popular on the island), and pickles, most of which use local ingredients. The Mauritian versions of those dishes have a local flavor and differ, at times considerably, from the original Indian recipes.
To add excitement to your retreat, there are a lot of activities that you can do during your free time. As the local beaches are surrounded by strong reefs all around, you can go for snorkeling or trekking all day along the long stretch of beaches, or go for a swim in the shallow and warm sea water.
The ocean route is probably the next best thing to do from Trou-aux-Biches, cruising from northwest of the island along the coastal roads all the way to the east, where you can take a boat trip to the island of Ile Aux Cerfs.
The trip is best done on the scooter, which allows for reaching each and every beach on the road. There are around a dozen of beaches on the ocean route, each quite different from each other, some of the sandy beaches, rocky beaches, Mediterranean blue water, deep blue water, forest beaches, and much more.
You can also book boat trips organized in the area to see dolphins and to visit other small tropical islands around Mauritius. For as little as 30 EUR, you can visit three islands off the north coast of Mauritius. These tours include pick up and drop off from the retreat, free drinks, free open lunch buffet, snorkeling accessories, and more.
The retreat is also close to the popular tourist attraction Pamplemousses Botanical Garden. Pamplemousses is the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere and for a long time, it ranked third among all the gardens that could be admired over the surface of the globe. It is famous for its long pond of giant water lilies and the wide variety of plants and flowers covering an area of almost 37 hectares.
The capital city of Mauritius, Port-Louis is only 30 minutes away by bus from the retreat. Known for its old architecture and harbor of Mauritius, Port-Louis is a great city to stroll around, providing an excellent history of the French and British colonization.
Things to see in the capital city are the central market (Victorian-style architecture), Caudan Waterfront, the new city of Port-Louis, China Town, the natural history of museum where you can see an actual stuffed dodo as well as other extinct animals, and more.
