This retreat is time for you to step away from your everyday life and find space for your Self. Take a look at life from a different perspective, invite all your cells to participate starting the year to get ready, rested and re-set for the year ahead and daily life back home.

We are holding this retreat back in our second home, Cherai Beach near Cochin in Kerala – it’s a charming 3 star rated resort with beautiful gardens and waterways. The villas are quiet with no adjoining walls, the decor is simple with comfortable beds, and each has it’s own verandah. there’s a fabulous swimming pool and private yoga space. it oozes local charm and homely atmosphere with friendly staff and a Yoga United rep on hand for any questions.

The beach is a few steps across a quiet dusty road,  the warm sea is perfect for swimming, relaxing, chatting with local families and becoming one with the sunset! Ayurvedic massage on site and connections with local Ayurvedic practitioners, this 8-night retreat includes physical practice, relaxation, mindfulness, meditation, restorative yoga, yoga nidra and some sharing of experiences to get to know each other.

Be prepared to listen and learn from your own inner teacher, make time for yourself and share your space with other like-minded health-seekers! How much you do is up to you.

India is a special place to experience yoga, breath work, meditative practices and Ayurveda. We have been running magical retreats & group experiences in India since 2008. Come with us to celebrate with all your senses! it’s a special place to experience yoga practice, and how it is woven through everyday life in its original place of birth.  All around are powerful reminders to re-connect with your natural and loving state of being and joy.

Ayurvedic massage, dipping into the local culture as well as the ocean, add up to a wonderful self-care package.
