SwaSwara  Eco Resort was chosen for its specialisation in holistic treatments and stunning setting in the natural environment of pristine South Indian coastal forest. Release, relax, slow down and learn to listen to and reflect on your inner voice or “Swara.” SwaSwara Eco Resort is the perfect place to deepen all aspects of your Ashtanga practice and reconstruct your body, mind and spirit, creating balance and harmony within. Daily morning chanting followed by Ashtanga Led and Mysore Classes are complimented by afternoon satsanga, delving into yoga philosophy discussions and asana and pranayama technique sessions. During the day you can schedule Ayurvedic massage and naturopathy treatments and take Ayurvedic cooking and meditative art classes or go on a guided nature walk with SwaSwara’s in house naturalist. There is a private entrance from SwaSwara to beautiful Om Beach or spend time relaxing by the pool.

We are also offering a boat ride on the Aganashini river (adjacent to SwaSwara) to visit historic Mirjan Fort, followed by a tuk tuk ride from the boat jetty to the Fort, returning by boat to OM Beach. Or, cruise by the pristine long beach where you can explore an un-touristed beach and fisherman’s village and a typical Konkan style temple. 

SwaSwara's in-house Ayurvedic physician, Doctor Firoz Varun, will give the group a special presentation on the science and practical application of Ayurveda in daily life. 

The Ayurveda presentation will be followed by an optional interactive cooking session on Ayurvedic cuisine. Students will have the opportunity to observe and take part in the preparation of a tri-doshic Ayurvedic meal for lunch on that day.
