You will be staying in a huge house with swimming pool right near the beach in one of the most beautiful places in Kerala. The room choices are a shared double room, a double room, or a private room. There are also a couple of rooms with four beds. If you have three or four people sharing, please send an inquiry about reduced rates.

Please note this is not a luxury retreat. India is a very poor country. To local people, the house will be like a palace, but don’t expect everything to be perfect. It will be clean, safe, and beautiful, but also fairly basic.

There will be a dynamic morning yoga session, six days per week and three more gentle afternoon sessions, which will also include relaxation and meditation practices.

Testimonials

  • Review by a traveler

    "I have just returned from the amazing yoga retreat with Eliane and Suzi and I’m wishing that I was still out there! Everything about it was perfect for me! Not only did Eliane and Suzi very quickly get me over my fear of a Mysore Ashtanga class, they went out of their way to ensure that everyone was happy and comfortable. The whole experience couldn’t have been more perfect for me. I had such a wonderful time and I made some very special friends whom I will definitely be staying in touch with. Eliane and Suzi are so lovely and they’re both such fantastic yoga teachers, they are such an inspiration to me. I feel truly blessed to have experienced this time with them. I’m really looking forward to continuing my Yoga journey with them now that I’m home and I look forward to joining them on future retreats!"

    "• Yoga – Great. As a not very mobile practitioner the 1.5 hours in the morning was a great start to the day that helped me to improve enormously. The every other day classes outside from our centre were excellent and good for all abilities and an excellent way to see more of the world of yoga than from just within our group. Beach yoga so great that it made me cry (whoops and again now at the thought!)"

    "• Teaching – Excellent. Expect it from Elia and Suzi and they didn’t disappoint. Other teachers were an excellent, even though I was a bit nervous before we went."

    "• Accommodation – perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean. Staff were incredibly helpful."

    "• Facilities – Fabulous infinity pool with a view of the Ocean, lovely friendly bar/restaurant with excellent breakfast and a slow but friendly service."

    "• Local environment – Perfect sea and great waves, great and varied restaurants where I never felt anything other than safe and welcome even when wandering on my own."

    "• Location – Did you know we went to India. Best holiday experience of my life!"

    "Yoga and teaching: Firstly, I want to thank you both massively for relighting my yoga flame. I was very nervous about getting back in to yoga after 8 months with injury but you made me feel very supported and able to take things at my own pace. You have instilled a lot of confidence in me. It was also very helpful to have personal feedback of things to work on."

    "I appreciate you offering vinyasa yoga as an alternative to ashtanga and know that others enjoyed having the choice too."

    "· Accommodation: I loved the accommodation, it was the perfect location and felt very safe. The staff were great and helpful and the facilities offered everything needed."

    "· Local environment: Varkala was definitely a great choice of location as it offered so many wonderful shop’s and restaurants and being so close to two beaches was perfect."

    "· Ayurvedic treatments: I enjoyed the treatments and think its important for people to know that its not a pick and choose treatment, its a course of treatments. Its key to go with an open mind and a basic understanding of balancing doshas."

    "· Hotel staff: Loved them all. Very kind and helpful. Service could be slow but I never felt annoyed as it was great to slow."

    "I have had a few sessions of Myo Fascial release therapy with Claire for a very painful shoulder. I had tried other treatments and medication but a session with Claire helped the pain significantly, I felt the improvement instantly. Claire is a very intuitive therapist who made the experience feel very valuable, I highly recommend her."

    "Love it here! I go to pregnancy yoga with Larissa, and she is special. You can tell she’s an advanced teacher, and I feel like I’ve done a proper class. Deirdre is a fabulous masseuse, and her Reiki is very powerful. Claire, the reflexologist, I have seen for years, and it’s always miraculous! Hertford’s hidden gem."

    "I love, love, love Angela Holland’s pregnant yoga! I followed her to Hertford as she was so brilliant during my first pregnancy. Her class is relaxing and useful, and modern music mixed with age-old techniques is a refreshing mix. Would definitely recommend :)."
