Our retreats offer you a chance to discover the real meaning of Yoga, which is much more than a series of physical postures. Yoga is a way of life, and our vision is to share the teachings and philosophy of Yoga to promote a holistic way to health and wellness as well as medicinal Ayurveda treatments in the purification of body and mind.
Retreat with us to immerse yourself in traditional Hatha Yoga practice. Allow yourself the time to reflect on the connection between the physical, mental and spiritual facets of the self whilst nurturing your connection with the divine, the environment and other people.
Practicing Yoga, we expand our consciousness by breaking free from the habitual patterns of the mind. Our intention is to illuminate the way forward for you by offering our knowledge, practice and support to transform your lifestyle, so you can bring harmony and peace into your life once more and maintain your balance upon returning home.
All of our retreats include personalized Ayurvedic consultations, massage, steam bath treatments, Yoga philosophy and cooking classes for those wanting to take home the exotic taste of Kerala. Guests will enjoy three vegetarian, nourishing meals daily as well as snacks, fresh juice, tea and coffee.

A collage of greens strewn with a million hues. A symphony of nature played by the birds, leaves and the bamboos. The music of stillness and solitude. Not to mention the chorus of geese and a whole lot of pets that dwell happily in the Village. The feel of grass crushing, leaves crunching and twigs snapping beneath your feet. The smell of fresh earth and the flavour of herbs and spices. The Village manages to cast a spell around all your senses.
