Please note that, from June to mid of August, it is monsoon season in Kerala. The people who are looking for ayurvedic treatments, usually, prefer the monsoon season. This period is also considered as the off-season, due to less foreigners’ visits and to having most of the restaurants and accommodation facilities closed.
It is a good time to do indoor Ayurveda treatments, as it may rain a lot and the temperature is cooler, but in the same time, please keep in mind that many activities, like swimming, star gazing, trekking, biking, walking in the forest and others might become impossible to embark upon.
Included in the total cost of this retreat is daily cycling trip to the beautiful places with route map, backwater boating and sightseeing, and visit to elephant rehabilitation center, lions park, and crocodile park.

He is also a social activist and spiritual seeker.
This retreat will take place in Kerala, India. A sliver of a coastal state in India's deep south, Kerala is shaped by its layered landscape, which is almost 600 kilometers of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches - a languid network of glistening backwaters, and the spice and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats. Just setting foot on this swathe of soul quenching, palm shaded green will slow your sub continental stride to a blissed-out amble. Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere, as if India had passed through the looking glass and become an altogether more laid-back place.
You will be served Sativic or Ayurvedic food three times daily as meals throughout the program. Alcohol, egg, meat, and other toxic items are not available.
A complementary Ayurvedic massage is included in the total cost. Other than that, School of Yoga Vidhya also offers various Ayurvedic treatments and programs prescribed by well-qualified and experienced Indian governmental certified Ayurveda therapists and doctors, but for an additional cost.
Please book your flight to arrive at Trivandrum International Airport (TRV). Transfer from and to the airport is included. School of Yoga Vidhya will pick you up from the airport.
