Khaama Kethna is an inspiring community based around sustainability, wellness, and creativity. Long term residents also stay here to work on permaculture, healing, and artistic projects. Simple but comfortable, eco accommodation weaves its way around the trees, constructed from low impact, local materials like bamboo, clay, and mud.

Open air showers and compost loos enjoy the privacy of surrounding plants and there is plenty of home comfort with big beds and carved Portuguese furniture decorating the rooms. The breeze and the sounds of the jungle flow through the rooms into your hearts. You can choose the option to best suit your budget, sharing or going solo; staying earthbound in the cabanas, or sleeping up in the air in a family tree house.

Jungle paths provide shady secluded spots to sit and contemplate. Springing from the earth are comfortably furnished communal areas for reading, eating, and connecting. Without Wi-Fi, you can take a break from the outer world doing and nourish the inner being.

The Well Garden India Yoga Retreat Itinerary

The yoga program offers a balance of strength and flexibility, yang and yin, flow and stillness; brushing up on your technique and allowing an inner enquiry. You will learn Ayurvedic principles and yoga philosophy delivered with a sense of fun. The retreat includes a sweat lodge, the powerful native American cleansing ritual.

You will dive deeply into your practice and your true nature with the support and guidance of The Well Garden teaching team led by Ali. She will share a gong bath with you each evening joined by the song of tropical birds and leaves rustling in the gentle breeze. The pyramid and banyan tree yoga shalas invite you to the remembrance of the body’s oneness with mother nature.

You will nurture your creative side and learn the art of meditation in the Sacred Yantra Making workshop. A Yantra, meaning tool, machine, or instrument in Sanskrit, brings the divine into form through the combination of various geometric shapes and patterns. Spend a peaceful afternoon drawing, painting, and meditating with the Yantra that most resonates with you.


Ali Gunning
Ali is an advanced Akhanda yoga teacher, yoga therapist, and gong practitioner. She combines strong asana postures with pranayama, philosophy, mantra, sound-work, and meditation. A weekly theme threads together these techniques so no two weeks are the same. She describes her yoga classes as authentic, energising, and joyful; balancing strength and flexibility; the sun-moon energies; the dynamic with stillness to draw you closer to wholeness.

Retreat location

Agonda is a quiet expanse of golden beach just two kilometers away, which is lovely for swimming, and day trips can be arranged to the waterfalls, spice plantation, and local markets.
