Yoga Retreat

We plan to conduct Yoga and Ayurveda retreats in Australia and in India. In Australia, we intent to conduct four retreats a year. One retreat each quarter.

Retreats will have a common format with Yoga and Ayurveda as the main themes. We will have intense yoga sessions during the two days of retreat. Ayurveda part of the retreat will involve an Ayurvedic consultation with an Ayurvedic expert and one ayurvedic treatment of your choice with some of the most outstanding Ayurveda therapists of Melbourne.

Our Kerala retreats will be Ayurveda focused with strong yoga support. Kerala retreats will be about ten days. It will start lightly with a sight seeing trip and we will go deep into authentic and traditional Kerala ayurveda therapy. Retreat will conclude with a day long sight seeing trip that will include some of the most beautiful locations of Kerala.
