Retreat location

Called “Queen of the Deccan,” Pune is the cultural capital of the Maratha peoples. The city first gained importance as the capital of the Bhonsle Marathas in the 17th century. Pune exemplifies an indigenous Marathi culture and ethos, in which education, arts and crafts, and theatres are given due prominence. It is the birthplace of the poet-saint Tukaram (in Dehu) and Jnaneshvara (in Alandi), the author of the well-known commentary ‘Jnaneshwari’, on the “Bhagavad Gita”. Pune is lively and vibrant, which can be a great atmosphere and contrast to surround yourself in, when spending time focusing your energy inwardly and on your wellbeing through your yoga practice.
