You will also get the chance to stay a day or night in the outer forests, enjoy the hill climbing, and meditation with an excellent, rich pleasant, and peaceful nature ambiance.

Monsoon Season Note

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 excursions

The price of this retreat includes backwater boating, sightseeing, and elephant rides. You will also be visiting the elephant rehabilitation center, lions park, and crocodile park. If you're feeling adventurous, join in the chance to stay a day or night in the outer forests, enjoy the hill climbing, and meditation with an excellent, rich pleasant, and peaceful nature ambiance.

Instructors

Vaishnavananda
With vast knowledge in Raja yoga, Guru Vaishnavananda has been exploring and continuing his journey in yoga. He has trained international guests with various cultural 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, and yoga sutra. He is also a social activist and spiritual seeker.

Retreat location

This retreat will be held at a sliver of a coastal state in India's deep south, Kerala. It is shaped by its layered landscape, which is almost 600 kilometers off the glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches, with a languid network of glistening backwaters, the spice, and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats. Just setting foot on this swathe of soul quenching and 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.
