    Throughout this amazing retreat, you will be staying at an Edwardian country house situated in Kent. The house is rather like an exotic ashram, unique and special. The house can accommodate up to eight guests and has beautiful bedrooms of dormitory style. There are three bedrooms with futon-Rollaway floor beds, minimal decor, beautiful feather duvets, white crisp linen sheets, and an Indian silk-curtained sleeping space.

    The Mysore and Jalaja bedrooms have a max occupancy of four persons. These bedrooms are 25x15ft, high ceilings and spacious.The Kingini bedroom, which is smaller, is suitable to accommodate two persons and at the moment I'm holding it for male bookings. There will be no mix room, as women will share with women.

    There are two bathrooms with bath and toilet. A hand-held shower is available in one of the bathrooms. In addition, there is a special yoga room called The Secret Shala, which has a hot yoga heating system of 25 to 30 degrees.
