  • Vaishnavananda

    Guru Vaishnavananda has vast knowledge in Raja yoga and has been exploring and continuing his journey in yoga. He has trained international guests with various cultural and backgrounds, from more than 18 countries around the world. He has been practicing yoga since his childhood and also inherited the knowledge. He has 17 years of experience in teaching asanas, kriyas, pranayama, bandha, mudra, Chakra yoga and purification, mind relaxation and meditation, inner and outer science, philosophy, Bagavad Gita, yoga sutra and a good 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.

    "The School of Yoga Vidhya arranged my four-day stay in Kerala for a yoga retreat. Jiju was very communicative before I arrived, answering any questions I had and sending me a full itinerary before my stay. When I arrived, Jiju was there and was very accommodating. He made sure everything was taken care of for me and planned excursions around the area. I recommend School of Yoga Vidhya for any first time yoga retreats or visitors to Kerala."

    "I was under depression and worry. My doctor advised me to practice yoga and meditation. Perfect time for me to take a vacation and come to India to school of yoga vidya . The breathing exercises, the calm surroundings, the wonderful yoga has made me clear of thoughts. Although I am not completely recovered, I can go back to Paris with a better mind and body. missing this place already. Definitely a place to visit more often."

    "What I can say is that during his retreat I could improve a lot my self practice in yoga, meditation and pranayamas; and I really appreciate that everyday, even now that I'm back to my daily life. This retreat was fulfilling also because of the very communicative enthusiasm of Jiju the yoga master. Plus, it was really conducive to do a very short break in the middle of my 2-weeks retreat to go to the deep forest, not so far from the hotel. I could add that the accomodation was perfect for the retreat (both room and meals) especcially during low-season: it was quiet and the staff was very kind."
