Retreat Program Details:

An eight day and seven night all inclusive Ashtanga Yoga Retreat at the very special SwaSwara Eco Resort 


The retreat begins on the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashami which celebrates the victory of light over darkness and the awakening of spiritual knowledge within.  The retreat will focus on the integration of all the elements of ashtanga yoga practice as well as yoga philosophy, chanting and satsang along with Ayurvedic and Naturopathic treatments. SwaSwara Eco Resort was chosen for its specialisation in holistic treatments and its stunning setting in the natural environment of pristine South Indian coastal forest. 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 is followed by Ashtanga Led and Mysore Classes and complimented by afternoon satsang, delving into yoga philosophy discussions with asana and pranayama technique sessions. During the day schedule Ayurvedic massage and naturopathy treatments or take Ayurvedic cooking, meditative art classes or go on a guided nature walk with SwaSwara’s in house naturalist. The moon day will begin with a morning satsang you followed by boat ride on the beautiful Aganashini river (who's river mouth meets the Arabian sea only a short distance from 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.
