India isn't just a country to visit, it melts into your soul, the land itself breathes you in and opens you up to a deeper version of yourself. Experience the veil between the worlds and the ancient practices of yoga and ceremony in India! Retreating away from your everyday life holds within it opportunities to reset, restore, and rest so that you may take stock of your year and set intentions for the year to come.

This retreat will take place at Ashok Tree Retreat. It is located between Bangalore and Chennai in Tiruvannamalai, the home of Swami Ramana Maharshi and many Siddhas. The ashram is located in rural surroundings and holds breath-taking views of both sunrises over the holy mountain of Arunachala and sunsets over the hills. It is away from pollution, hustle and bustle, tucked away in farmland within nature and in precious wide-open spaces. The land is a flora and fauna sanctuary as well as cow and dog rescue.

The retreat includes a 60-minute Ayurvedic massage treatment and workshop.
